Sad (being a Ford fan) that the only patterns we can find are the Chevy patterns.
I'm looking for the Ford small block and the Buick/Rover aluminum V8 patterns.
Add me to the list of those looking for bell housing patterns.
Yesterday I put the measurements for the small block in AutoCad.
Now that I looked at the pictures of the 60 degree V6, small block and the big block V8 blueprints, they are showing the exact same measurements as the small block (the measurement were in a different order so they are not the same prints recopied).
Of the pictures that I have downloaded, were they mistakenly showing the small block rear prints mislabeled as the V6 and Big Block V8?
If so, I would like to get a copy of the Big Block V8 as well.
I will make a note of posting any others that I find here as well.
The 90° V6, SBC, and BBC have the same bellhousing pattern. The 2 Chevy V8's also shared the same flywheel pattern until 1985. The 85 and newer small block flywheel changed with the addition of the one piece rear seal. The 84 and older V6 may also have been the same but I never looked into it.
Great stuff. I actually measured a BBC head gasket to come up with the bolt pattern for a project I was working on. I was very close with my numbers. Wish I had found this thread before I started though.
