    DDDenny is right, advertise it a bit, Chevy II guys are REALLY on the hunt for these blocks, and they are pretty scarce now.
    Him and I both own '66/'67 chevy II's and travel in those circles. Try advertising it on Steves Nova forum, bet you will be over-run with potential buyers.

  4. Not quite I guess... Backyard wrenching...... 3/4 cold rolled/rosebud/jig/ and made it drop about an inch,and angled an inch. Melted it in w/ gusseting, and the inner rod ends cleared the pan at full lock. Just enough to solve the oiling woes with the pan/oiling issues I mentioned. Seen some really gaudy attempts, but this worked out very clean and nice.
    Fords have the same issue...Type 2 suspension (old lingo)...
    Now if you add a clip in front,all those worries go away,and it's not even thought of these days.....

    Well, being in New Brunswick, Canada.........I would think shipping that block becomes a real problem.
     
  6. Everything worked well with all the work we did. I missed taking the pump final pictures, but the one attached here shows where else the material was in the way. Easy set up, pump in a vise on the Bridgeport, used a 90* countersink, had it in & out about 4 times. Cast iron cuts very easily.

    I actually photographed THIS ROUND from another angle!

    Judy had the Duster at Mission for the WDRS within a couple weeks of this photo. Man, I was like 14 or 15, that was a BIG deal.

    FWIW, I have a late 1963 "721" 283 Nova block (standard bore). I would actually trade it for a "real" 62-70 Chevy II/Nova 153 4 cylinder car engine.

    If you see a 54-56 Ford with a SBC under the hood I'll bet you will see a Chevy ll pan in it.
