Hello Bern , The most notorious Ford for Cavitation problems is the Mid to late 80's 555's , I have yet to see one that did not ruin the block . We are just finishing up one for the original owner with less than 4000 hours on it and he was using the Cat Additive same as I use since it was new , sleeved all three cylinders in it . Block prior to 82 / 83 were always good and the later 92 / 93 were redesigned and much thicker with the webbing on the outside all the 201's in between are candidates for sleeves at every rebuild just to be safe . Thanks Tony

The 201 block I have laying around was from a loader tractor... late 70's vintage. Might have been a 545... I think they were all susceptible. That said, mine are a '66, '74, '85, '91 and '98 and none have pinholed yet... though I do use the conditioner.
