    Does anybody have the basic overall dimensions ie. length, width, height for the Caddy flathead V-8? Not including the transmission.

    Thanks

    Sorry to you and Richard D. He turned me on to Indagarage who I have been communicating with. Once he and I hooked up I figured that was it for my question. I guess I was wrong. Sorry again and thanks for the input.

    I had a change of heart. from the front of the forward-most pulley to the back of the block is about 30". Its about 37" to the back of the bellhousing. Remember, these are very rough measurements because the engine is still in the car. Also, as far a weight goes, I have heard 750 lb. for the block/heads, but I have heard almost 1000 lb. fully dressed.

    Yay, cast iron!

    Guys,

    I have a 16 year old mind in a 68 year old body, so you can imagine what kind of brain farts that produces. Indashop, indagarage, hell, the only time I know whats happening is when I'm indarod. Remeber, it's never too late to have a happy childhood. After I'm done screwing this series of posts up I'm going for a drive in the '34.

    Yeh, it's amazing what a drive in the rod with the wind blowin and the Cherry Bombs rappin can do for your soul. I hope all of you guys get your chance to retire and be able to enjoy your rides whenever you want to.
