Is there a difference in front to back length of a SBC and BBC?

    And if so, what is it?

    I tried searching the web with google and ask.com, but came up with a million useless sites.

    Is there any exclusively auto search sites that might have been better to use?

    TIA

    If it matters, I believe the length difference is in front of the motor mounts (between the water pump and motor mounts) - so the distance from the motor mounts to the bellhousing is the same.

    I was about to agree with yukon jack. Same from mounts to bellhousing.
