Question for completed SBC Projects

I got my 5.7L TBI with 4L60E tranny, and D300 set in place...held in by bailing wire, c-clamps and rubber bands....I'm not welding the motor mounts yet. I'm trying to get the correct distance from the firewall. Right now I have about 2" from the dist to the firewall and it looks like I have about 5-6" between the water pump and radiator. I'm planning on using the Taurus that leaves me about 3" to play with...or more if I offset the fan.

I am measureing 19.5" from yoke centerline to centerline in the rear. How does this compare to your rig if your running a similar setup?

Thats right about where you need to be we have gone to 18 3/4 with a 3 core and a flex fan. I would install the fan as well and make sure (measure twice) that your ready to weld that thing in. When we used to do the chebby back in the mudding days we would use a stainless steel stick welding rod (just to make sure [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] )

2" between the Dis and the Firewall sounds just about perfect. I have about 1.5" between dis, and firewall, and that still leaves me room to get my hand, and a wrench behind the motor to access the top bolts on the bellhousing if need be.

+/- 20" for your rear drive shaft seems ok to me.
