dimensions of a 3.8/4.3 engine
Hi guys - I mostly hang out on the full size board, but figure this is the most likely forum for the info I'm looking for. ( tried search, and it didnt help)
I'm considering a chev V6 + propane swap into the rover in my avatar, but havent been able to find a straight answer on the sizes of the GM V6's. the 2 motors I'm considering are the 3.3 60* motor, and the 3.8 90* motor. The critical dimension is the overal length from the back of the block, to the front of the water pump snout. Can anyone on here help me out with accurate numbers, and possible insight into 'short' setups ( or which variants were possibly shorter from the factory.)
FWD vs RWD isnt a big issue: its not going into an existing driveline, so I'll be picking a tranny to match the bellhousing pattern.
