Measurments Please

I need a few measurments if you guys and gals don't mind. If you have a big block chevy engine here is what I need:
1) Bottom of block (where oil pan seals against block) to deck (where intake manifold seals against block).
2) width from outside of top of cylinder heads to each other. Other words, widest point of engine.
3) Length of block

And thats it. Just trying to make sure my frame will be wide enough in the front for the engine. Dont' want to get it all done and go to drop engine in and it doesn't fit[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Measurments Please

Jason- I have the tape measure in my hand and am ready to go but I remembered that my BB is a tall deck and you are more than likly going with a short deck. If you still want measurements let me know because you have done lots for me in the past and its the least I can do.....

Re: Measurments Please

I got a short deck but wont be able to get back with ya till monday. Why does top of block to oil pan rail matter? What about oil pan? I would think you would wana know were the pads for the motor mounts are too right? If your worried about fitting valve cover measurments? And dont forget the distributor, might be a pain to find out ya aint got room back there

Re: Measurments Please

Der, uh, well, it is a short deck standard big block, need top of block to oil pan rail because I need to know how low the block is going to sit in the frame with the blower and injection on top, I am going to be using the motor mount plates, the ones that bolt to the front and rear of the engine instead of the normal motor mounts, good point about the valve covers, can i get the measurement from there too? I will be cutting out the firewall so I can fit. Stock, I have 40" of engine pay depth from front to rear. I have never had a big block anything so I have no idea what the size of the blocks are. I was going to pick up a blown block or sumpin just for mock up but the machine shops want like 200 bucks for them? For a worthless block? Anyway, does anyone know where to get one of those plasic mock-up blocks that are all tapped so you can attache everything to them?

Re: Measurments Please

try summit racing for the mock up block. If not them Jegs.

Those are great BTW for custom projects like that. They are light enough to really move around and get into place like you want em without 4 friends and a crane.

Re: Measurments Please

I don't have my magazines with me (I'm at work) but 4x4 power did a swapology article a while back that included measurements of engines and things. When I get home I'll tell you what (if anything) they say about the engine you want. Only problem is that my computer at home died. All I have is a dreamcast that can connect to the internet. I can still type, but it is a slow process (using 2 controller buttons to type on a on-screen keyboard). I don't mind doing it though. I hope for your sake (and mine now that I have offered help) that my wife hasn't thrown the mag. away![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
