NIce job on the engine and fabrication of the rear filler block, did you happen to make any extra ones?

I have the old filler block for the rear seal,  my former boss' friend that does aluminum casting wanted to make them out of cast aluminum, which would be quicker and repeatable.  I still may do that if I drum up some interest to make it worthwhile for him to make a pattern for the castings.  it would be a cost plus the shipping deal, it wouldn't be a huge profit markup thing for me.

the filler block I made probably took about 12-14 hours, making another one probably wouldn't take quite as long now.

getting them cast would probably be the way to go, I forget now but when I visited him on a Kubota engine job, he was making the pattern for a pierce arrow head, and cast a few for a club somewhere.

Not sure there would enough demand to justify the casting costs, but with all the technology out there perhaps they could be made with a 3d printer.
