    ok so i have a spare sbc and will most likely do something stupid with it like put it in a buggy or some thing. I have been thinking about it and could i instal it on an angle, so the front would be up and slopeing to the back.

    if so how much could i get away with? or is this just something horibly wrong???

    In the race car industry it is typical of 4-6* rearward tilt. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    No I can't. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Someone has firm numbers, I'd probably stick with that...too much rearward tilt and you'd have oil climbing into places you don't want it, most of all the crank.
