Saw their ad on ebay and thought I would try one of their 383 chevy small blocks for a 69 camaro SS that I would be pulling the original engine out of. Wanted the 383 for some fun power. Had a set of AFR heads setting around and a full comp solid roller valve train. Got the short block and upon inspection noticed that no assembly lubricant was used anywhere. Totally dry. Put it on a stand and rotated it to discover that the block had not been clearanced very well and the crank struck the block when rotated and locked. Decided to take this one apart as it looked like a diaster in the making. Rings were dry and had zero oil as did the cylinders. Rod and main bearings were totally dry. Pistons were pressed pin units but their shop put bushed pin rods and the bushings were alreading coming out of the rod ends. I have never seen such sloppy work. Contacted Scot (owner) and he basically told me that I did not know what I was talking about. I dropped the engine off at my local machine shop of 30 years in business to see if I could salvage anything because of the hassle of trying to ship it back to Dyno-Flo. Cylinders were found to be out of round and taper was .003-.005 out of round. Rods were ruined as were the pistons and the block would have had to be bored another .010 to get the cylinders round. This is the worst work I have seen. Sent the block back to Dyno-Flo and Scot denied any fault and said that the engine was just fine, haha. He was very insulting but finally agreed to refund my money. I left accurate feedback to warn others. Hopefully, you will do your homework before dealing with this company.
