Is there a difference between mini and standard front blocks?

Hello,

I'm trying to confirm if there is a difference between a standard Cocker front block 2K+ and a Mini Cocker front block 2K+?

Specifically speaking Shocktech if anyone knows.

Long story short I would be putting a new front block on a Mini Cocker. Just don't want to buy a standard Autococker block if there is a difference in the two so it won't work.

Thanks,
Jared

A mini front block as the reg adapter made on it where a standard doesn't and the reg adapter is on the body.

There's two ways to do it:
Take a stock front block, and put an adapter in the 1/8th NPT port in the bottom of the block. The adapter is a bell shaped part with a tank thread female bottom, and a male 1/8th NPT top.

The other option has the ASA built into the front block. There is no adapter, the ASA is just an extension of the front block.

Here's some examples:

The far left block is a standard block with an adapter.
The second to the left has a integrated ASA

Thanks guys....I am familiar with the vertical ASA going into the bottom. I just wasn't sure if there were Mini Cocker and Autococker specific front blocks where one would not fit the other. I didn't think there was but wanted to confirm.

So the only difference is the Pre 2K front block and the 2K+ front block. It appears either will fit their respective year Mini or standard body Cockers.

Thanks

Mini orracle front blocks are milled to the orracle's lower tube shape, so some fitting is required for other bodies, karnivor front blocks have a sleeve that extends over part of the body and they also have an indexing slot in the sleeve for the tab on the body, they will fit 2005 bodies after milling part of the sleeve down.

Other than those 2 specific cases, I believe it's just the difference between 2k+ and pre-2k.
