TMeyer acquires "1st aftermarket Cleveland block"

August 25, 2015
TMeyer Inc acquires "1st aftermarket Cleveland block"

“Due to an unexpected increase of workload and an exciting new antique-engine project, I have closed a deal that has been in the works over the past couple of years with TMeyer, Inc. This arrangement will allow me to fulfill the last of my existing Cleveland obligations and then turn the project over to them for further advancement and needed focus that I can no longer provide to the project. I am fully confident in TMeyer’s abilities to continue this project, and I plan to be available as needed to assist through this transition. The Cleveland family of guys have been a pleasure to work with, and I will always view them favorably.” - Tod Buttermore

“TMeyer, Inc. is very excited about the acquisition of the Tod Buttermore, Cleveland-block project. Tod has gone to great lengths to provide a quality designed product that looks almost identical to an OE block on the outside. What Tod has done can only be described as “history-making.”
TMeyer, Inc. will continue to offer a premium product and a full-line of services needed to build a quality performance engine and is dedicated to producing a “100% American-made” product. The castings will be made in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and with the purchase of a local CNC machine shop, TMeyer will have the ability to provide all of the machining required.
We at TMeyer, Inc. believe that with the current line of products TMeyer has to offer, the addition of the Buttermore Cleveland-block will set us apart as a one-stop-shop for all your Cleveland product needs.” - Tim Meyer (TMeyer, Inc.)

A little history....

ETA...We will be taking delivery of the tooling in 2-3 weeks. Foundry said about 6 weeks to produce the first sample.
Our goal is to start shipping block before the end of the year.

Edit...
We will be offering Aluminum & Cast Iron block.

More Edit...
I want to make sure Tod Buttermore get the accolades deserved for creating this project. Tod really did have a great undertaking to create this block. It really is a history making block.
