    Thats a big poppa motor. I have a '68 Eldo with the 472, good motor [​IMG]. All I can say is that I think alot of the 472 parts will work because the 500 hundred is a 472 with a longet stroke and GM may have enlarged the cylinders. The 500 hundred came out with the '70 Eldo and lasted till the later 70's.

    There are pictures and info on Donovan's Blazer with a 500 Caddy on my web site. Just click on the link in my sig below, and then click on the link to the 500 cad powered Blazer. Donovan's email is listed on that page as well, feel free to email him directly with your questions.
