LOL< yea that pic is from chilifest here in lubbock, that is actually my friend chris and my brother. LOTS Of fine ladies here in Texas, espically in a college town.
Thanks for the engine pic by the way
glad to help if i can
yes you can, it is unused, ive seen a few rigs where gm had used it for air pump bracketry but only a few. it is however an ez spot to chip off, so be nice, no impact id sasy.
I've heard that that is a through hole and you can pin the fuel pump push rod with too long a bolt...
Yep and you use that hole with a longer bolt when you change the fuel pump..
True. It is there to retain the fuel pump pushrod to facilitate pump replacement. Use some pooky on it if you take it out.
thanks guys, I"m thinking about running a bracket down there for my OBA bracket
Just make sure whatever you do, reinstall the bolt or something to plug that hole back up. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
A friend of mine installed a gasket kit on his SBC and forgot to install this bolt back in that hole. He had oil leakage, badly, and at first he did not know where the oil was coming from. He later found the oil coming out of the hole and quickly put a bolt back in. It fixed the leak, but not until he lost a few quarts of oil first. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
