 This block is a factory roller block with cam retainer plate.

The cover is just a cheap aluminum cover I got from Summit.

Looks great.
Not to rain on your parade but you might be taking it back apart.
If you are putting it in your 66' that pan might have interference issues with the steering linkage.
(no indentions to clear the tie rod ends)
Along with the square corners on the front of the sump is super tight at the cross member pinching the brake line for the right front.
I had to make a new line that went across the cross member on the front side verses the rear.

 Thanks LaVelle, I will look into it.

Summit recommended this pan, but not sure I looked at application.

I can't speak to SBs but when we dropped Darryls 427 motor in my 69, the square corners did bump my crossmember.  What LaVelle said about the brake line happened also.  We ended up denting the corners with a hammer and taking the brake line loose from the cross member and letting it hang.  It worked for the short term but I wouldn't recommend it for the long haul.

I called Summit today and they swear that pan is correct for my car.

I guess I will have to try it to find out.

LaVelle, Even though Summit swears the pan will fit, I was able to find dimensions.

Don't know if you can tell if it will fit?

Summit Racing SUM-G3603 has an overall depth from the pan rail of 8.25 in. to the bottom of the sump. It has a constant depth of 4.25 in from the front of the pan to the front of the sump (Y and Z dimensions in your photo). The distance back from the front of the pan seal to the front of the sump is 11.875 in. (X dimension in your photo).
