Help - SBC Engine Placement?
Need input/measurements regarding the placement of my 5.7L V8 in an 84 CJ. Hopefully, some of you that have already done it can give me some measurements.
1. How far is your dist cap from the firewall?
2. How far is the water pump from the radiator? (use the center stud as reference)
3. How high is the engine?...i.e., using the oil pan gasket surface as a reference, where is it in relation to the top front of the frame? If your using the Novak motor mounts, how high above the frame are they?
I'm using the Novak kit including their motor mounts. One problem already is that it looks like the bracket that limits the diff travel has to go...the motor mount needs to weld where it is.
Any input would be appreceated....I would rather learn from someone else's mistakes......
