    Hey guys, could someone with a BBC do me a favor, I need a few measurements.

    I need measurements from:

    -the rear face of the block to the front of the pulleys (doesn't matter if it's serp. or v-belt).

    -outside edge of head to outside edge of head (widest point of the motor not counting the exhaust)

    -bottom of sump to the top of air cleaner

    I'm trying to see if it's feasible to fit a DT466 or HT570 into a chevy.

    Also, what does an all iron big block weigh? A DT466 weighs in at 1400 pounds dry and holds 32 quarts of oil. :doah:

    Can't help you with the dimensions portion of your request as i just finished taking apart a 454. I can tell you though that a complete BBC weighs in at 685 lbs.

    Thanks man, think a D60 or 2wd front would handle and extra 800 pounds sitting on it?

    Yeah, but it didn't run worth a damn and there was a hole in the gas tank. :p: Did you guys get it rolling after you drove the 1/2 block to the gas station?

    Actually, the DT466 idea hit me today. I dunno how the hell I'd put a t-case on one though.

    Brett, how much does a 6bt weigh?

    Runs perfectly after the tank was fixed and it had a drink :haha:

    Run a divorced case.

    6bt is about #1100
