    r5: Thanks for clearing that up. I 'assume' that the R3 or R4 block was not one run by Granatelli at Bonneville. Does anyone know if the original R5 block is still in existance and it's whereabouts/condition?

    shifter4: Where did the picture get to? stupak

    This is not the R5 block. Greg has the sheet metal induction parts, blower brackets and pulleys from the R5 and is building an R5 clone using a block that either came from an R3 or R4.

    I'm confused! If there was NOT a rod thrown in any of Granatelli's Bonneville engines, why was the R5 block repaired????? stupak

    It is well documented that there were not any problems with the engines run by the Granatelli's at Bonneville and there was certainly not a rod thrown in one.

    Thanks John. A friend and I are chasing a wild goose, and I needed to know where the rod went through. Thanks again.

    Someone recently posted some photos of Greg Cone's R5 engine block. The block was busted by a rod at Bonneville and the photos showed the repair that Greg had made. Anybody know where those pics are???
