4.2 and 4.0

are same cast iron block?

4.2 used different heads and cam there stroked to a 4.2?

My uncle has a header he is giving me that was used on his 4.0

Actually the ports are different on the 4.0 head so the header will not work. Swap in a 4.0 head and it will.

Also, the 4.0 block has a larger bore then the 4.2.
