Re: Big Block owners please look
OK, this is starting to make sense, but I still do not know where the difference between the 68 and 69 really is. Your measurement of 25 1/2 to the front side of the core support is probably the same as mine of 26 1/2 to the back side. I assume the core support is about 1 1/4 thick so that is the same. The measurement of 8" from the face of the water pump to the core support is where I seem to be off. From my water pump pulley to the rad core is 3 1/4 and I have a 3 thick rad and I guess it to be about 1/2 away from the core support, so if you add all of that up I have 6 3/4 where you have 8. The difference from the short pump to the long pump is 1 1/2 so i appears that there is 1 1/2 difference between the 68 car and the 69. Exactly the difference that is in the 2 pumps. BUT,,,,,, I can not figure out how I can have the same measurement from the carb stud to the core support and yet have less room for my fan??????????
Still searching for answers.....if this confuses you, join the club, I am lost. I sure do not want to have to convert everything to the short pump to make it work.
