Question

I just realized that I neglected to block off a threaded hole on the front of my block, near the fuel pump. See the highlighted bolt on the photo from the 67 AIM below:

This wouldn't by any chance help explain why I'm only pulling 6-8 lbs of vacuum at idle at the manifold, would it?

Sorry, that bolt would explain the oil leak [img]smile.gif[/img] from the front of your engine.
Sometimes the hole was not drilled all the way through. Also, don't put too long of a bolt in, you can hit the fuel pump rod with it and really mess things up.

And that should be one of the two, (two on each side), bolt holes that are for the original front mounts that the tri-fives used! pdq67

Those are also used as smog pump bracket holes on the passenger side. The other side can be used for power steering pumps on vans and other uses too.

FWIW, the correct block-off bolt is 3/8-16x3/4", Grade 5 with a small 'c' on the bolt head.
