??? regarding a 94 351 block???

Hello,

I have just removed my motor to have it rebuilt and have a forged crank installed and I noticed a strange looking hole in the intake area(lifter valley???) where the lifters and pushrods are under where the intake is...It is weird shaped(looks like a lake...LOL), rough edges, and in the front of the block towards where the dizzy and water pump are...

My question is; is it supposed to be there or has there been a major catastrophy in my motor in its past, and will it cause problems if it is not supposed to be there...I am thinking it is a drain hole that the last owner made bigger for some odd reason, but I figure I would check here to get an opinion from the pros...I thank you in advance.....

Post pictures of the valley. I'm sure the repetative posts were accidental.

Photos do not show hole?

I can't see the hole in the photos....you described the hole as being toward the distributor (front of motor) but the photos are taken toward rear of motor which obstructs the view?

There should be 2 round holes (.250") in diameter for oil flow.One at front of block (inside lifter valley) and one at the rear.
Both holes should be centered as you look at the block from the front.

If you are referring to the asymmetric shaped holes on the deck of the block (surface the head mounts to)...they are supposed to be there. They are the coolant passage holes. You will see 2 at the front of each deck and two at the rear of each deck. (8 total on motor)

Other than that...I can't see anything in the photos.....try a different angle and use a shop light to brighten up what you are showing.
