New motor for the Chevelle

I'll jack the car up and get some measurements, but in the mean time this might help.

It basically explains the oil pan problems in early Chevelle's for why I believe you might run into problems with the pan you have being so squared-up, up front, contacting the steering linkage.

 Good eye,

The other ones would require lots of cleaning if you got even a fingerprint on them.

I have had these sitting on the shelf for 4 years. Much easier to clean.

Been driving the Chevelle pretty much every day.

Gets better every time I take her out.
