These are real nice for areas where you need the extra space. The clean up the front of the engine at the same time making it have a slimmer appearance. They are set up for the marine oil pan bolt pattern.

John,
Will the standard damper work or does it take a shorter one. I've been wondering about length on the 4-71 supercharged engine. The belt drive adds about 4" to the front of the crank. This cover with a short damper might do the trick. Of course all the accessories would have to have modified brackets to fit. Chuck

Looking for McCullouch VS57 brackets and parts. Also looking for 28 Chrysler series 72 parts. And early Hemi parts.

Chuck, the idea is to shorten a Y-Block damper or use a scrub damper to shorten things. There will be other mods required. An early scrub water pump pulley is deeper and moves the belt closer to the engine.

CK : It was Verne Schumann (Schumann Sales Iowa) that was looking at the block possibility.  I suspect it didn't fly, which isn't a surprise when you consider all that's involved..

Talking to JM last year when I was over there, the talk of creating a block with a raised cam would create all sorts of problems with distributor, drive, and oil pump.

I think it was too many changes at once for the block.  A new block should ensure that current parts can be used, but made of better material, reinforced where necessary and allow for a bigger bore.  Also with the power these engines are making now, 292, and 312 blocks really aren't needed for power.  Use the discarded 272s and smaller displacement blocks.  There seem to be plenty of blocks at the time and they aren't breaking very often.  What's needed is cranks and, to compliment all the great stuff on the induction side, exhaust.  For anything other than a T-Bird (FPA headers), there is really no great exhaust option that is readily available.  There are lots of good options, but nothing that is in line with Mummert heads and intake.

Just a thought, since the FPA headers did quite well in Ted's header tests, I've asked a couple times over the past few year if they would produce another Y-Block header (for trucks, in my case).   Each time, the reply is I'm the only person who has asked for them which, understandably is not enough demand to justify the development of a new header.  If any of you agree about a need for better exhaust, start asking these header companies to produce.  If we're loud enough, they will make something better.  That goes for everything, really.  If you don't let them know there is demand, it won't be made.
