This is a D1VE block with the thin web non machined pan rail.

If you look at the main saddle area as it connects to the side of the block the webs are thinner and necked down.

Also the pan rails are not machined.








Here is a DOVE-A thick web block with machined pan rails,this is the same block that a 429 Cobra-Jet uses some of these blocks had 4 bolt some did not.

Yes, most are D1VE-A, -A2A... You can use aftermarket caps to 4-bolt them. Can't beat a D0VE block, but I've never broken a later one. Good info though.

Yes, in fact the DOVE-A block in this post is getting a Engine Systems 4 bolt conversion on it.

I called Engine Sytems and talked to the guy and he said they only make one cap that is designed for the D1VE blocks and they just machine some mods into it if is for a DOVE-A block and they cost $375.00.

He said that the caps are easier to fit to the DOVE-A block for the machine shop.

Wanna havva good strong block for the Falcon engine and Keith Craft talked me outta the SVO 460 block I was gonna get.......they said if you have over 1000 HP you should then step up to the SVO block but,at 800-850 where I will be a converted 4 bolt DOVE-A will live easy.

I thought he'd help you save some $$$. I use the D1VE blocks & get 750 on the engine & spray it ??? I think you are gonna have a really nice mill when you're done. You are getting the right parts & some good advice from KC

They also changed the deck height slightly. I think they're referring to EFI 460's. CARB stuff ya know. Even the internal/external stuff will interchange.

The D1VE-AA block is identical to the D0VE-A vlock. It was used in the 71 CJ/SCJ and others. It was a 10.300" deck height like the D0VE-A.




The D1VE-A2A is 10.310 and the D1VE-A2B is 10.322. Both of these are then main webs.

Which D1VE blocks? There were at least 3 of them.

The D1VE-AA was mostly made only in late 70 or 71 for model year 71. The D1VE-A2A or A2B was made mid 71 until 79 when the D9TE block was released. This is my understanding of it.

The deck heights changed in 71 to approx 10.310" and I beleive this would be A2A blocks and the around mid 71 and 72 and later they changed to 10.322", this would be the A2B. All this happened around the time the cam gears change and added the 4* of retard.
