304 physical dimensions
It has been suggested that I look at the 304 as an option for my 1947 Morris 8 Rod. I had been going down the V6 path...but you can't beat the rumble of a V8 in a little rod!!!
Would anyone out there be able to tell me the physical dimensions of the 304 (with all of the accessories except perhaps A/C)? I also need to know where the motor mounts locate on the engine from the back of the block.
From all accounts it sounds like a reasonable swap...otherwise...I'll succumb to the 350 SBC route...

Hey, well the following measurements are approximate but should give you an idea as to whether the V8 will fit...
Engine Width; Rocker to Rocker is approx. 610mmEngine Width; Alternater Included is approx.690mmEngine Width; Power Steer Pump Added is approx.800mmEngine Length; Rear to Water Pump is approx. 670mmEngine Mount ; Rear of Block to Rearmost point of Mount is approx 300mmThat last measurement isn't spot on but I will be working on me mates GTS tomorrow and will get a better measurement....Now I want something...post up a pic of a 1947 Morris 8 Rod will you...so that I can see what the hell we are discussing here :confused:.....Nitrous is neat,
Injection hard to beat,
But when I gotta get goin',
I'd rather be Blown!
