Mike, is yours cracked beyond repair? Most cracks can be repaired with lock-n-stitch. Can you post photos of yours? I do have one early block (4021) and a later one both of which are being moved to NV.

Are you looking for a block for your late '42 GPW? Have you tried the motor exchange thread at the top of this board?

I agree with David, many cracks can be easily repaired if you are willing to spend a little extra money, which IMO is well worth it! Why not contact Abraham's in Davenport, IA?
