The threads about this subject the last couple weeks are new to me, because until lately, the cracked block questions always involved the Cont z129 in TO30's, that were admitted to have been machined too thin between the cylinders to take the larger diameter sleeve. The smaller older 120's weren't something I've seen people have the same problem with till recently. Or????

My hunch is no. It would be a coolant or oil fault if that was the case... and compare to the 3rd world where many fergies are flogged to death even today, doubtful. As for Continental Motor Co trying to save a buck by boring out for more cubic inches in the same casting... my money is on that. Nearly all Z129's were sold in US, except the few in Canada? I bet most of these weren't from new dealerships, but cross border auctions and bargain hunting.
