  • Filler Blocks for 1954 Champion Engine

    I am looking to reproduce these as I do not think anyone is now. Please advise if anyone is as we don not need 2 suppliers.
    I have sent an email to Newman and Altman to see if they are interested. I would prefer to work through then with a little volume - 10 or 20 I would guess. Please respond to this posting if you are interested in buying any. I would be lookin at getting them machined from a good grade of aluminium. Thge more interest, the lower the cost.

    Pardon my ignorance, but I'm new to the Champion engine. What is a filler block?

      The filler block is at the front of the oil pan to fill the opening between the timing gear cover and the oil pan. It is made of white metal which allows it to deform if the bolts are tightened too much which results in leaking oil at the front of the engine. They are available for the v8 and the 6 cylinders after 1955. The older champion engines had a shorter stroke and the half moon shaped part is smaller I believe.

        Newman and Altman have been out of business for years. You might try the current major vendors like; SASCO, SI, SA, Cathcart (six cylinder specialist).
