This is a top quality Genuine AM General Optimizer™ 6.5 Block Casting.
We realize this is not the cheapest block available, however we believe once you know all the facts and details about our block and the shortcomings of the other offerings elsewhere and online, you will agree, this block is worth paying a little more for than an aftermarket cheap Chinese knock-off.
If a seller/retailer does not state in their ads where their blocks are made, you can believe the country of origin is not exactly a selling point for them. One tip-off is to look at the core plugs, are they quality brass? or are they cheap, rust-prone steel?
Compare to others: These blocks are Genuine AM General Optimizer™ castings. There are VERY few outlets to the public for these blocks outside of the Military procurement system. Other companies sell new blocks, but be careful, most are using the old casting forms, and no improvements to the metallurgy - FROM CHINA! . Booooo!
Rebuilding your 6.5 is a major investment of your time and money, start with a solid foundation worthy of your efforts.
