    409 External Dimensions

    I measured a 409 truck block. 23 11/16" from BH surface to timing cover surface. Timing cover is off. 16" from BH surface to center motor mount bolt hole. That should be the same as sbc or bbc since they swap easily. I looked for online dimensions for sbc and bbc, but did not find those...

    58-65 Chevy keys

    From the 1961 shop manual above says they used 2 kinds of tumbler locks, but one key fits all. Bob, this is from your 1961 sales brochure showing only 2 octagon key, suggesting one octagon key fits all. This photo is from my 1964 owners manual stating what the key fits. It fits all locks...

    I am using a staggered bolt mini starter from a 95 chevy pickup with my large flywheel. You have to get the correct length bolts when using a mini starter. The original starter that came with the car in 64 used all 3 mounting bolts similar to the linked photo below. 3 bolt starter

    Eating 1,000 Year Old Duck Eggs

    I have a hard time believing that someone would waste time searching the internet for this kind of garbage. Some of you long time members may remember about 15 years ago when this was a "G" rated site, mostly automotive content, W engines, X frames, folks of both political parties and good...
