These days the cap mounting face on the block is typically ground down very slightly prior to line boring with the cap in place in order to avoid the need to fit bearings with oversize OD. This moves the crank centreline a couple of thou toward the cylinder head deck surface.
Yes, the block is a 120E with the rounded caps. Good to know about the line boring, thanks.
Life is like a sewer, what you get out of it depends on what you put into it.
