I have never seen a single pattern block above 66....There may be some out there ,maybe a west coast thing but you cannot say for sure that a 78 is a single. Thank you drag-200stang! No, he's saying his block was a small pattern only 65 and he was trying to bolt a 9" clutch bell to it. This ki...

Re: Block swap questions

A '65 200 block is not dual pattern drilled, '65 blocks were still 8 1/2" clutch and smaller C4 bell. Dual bolt pattern started in '66. A '78 200 is not dual pattern either, A '78 block is 9" clutch, later C4 pattern only. '65 bell won't bolt to a '78 block. StarDiero75 can vouch for this...

Something to check when you get the sprocket off, check to see if the cam spacer is behind the cam pin, it goes on with the inside bevel toward the cam journal , not to be confused with cam retainer plate...If that is not there it will cause problems.

The turbocharger for the 62-66 Corvair is a draw-thru and is sealed. It can be and has been used in a blow-thru system. A turbocharger for a blow-thru system usually can't be used in a draw-thru setup because of the lack of seals for gasoline. Hope this helps. Thanks , Dan I thought it would be OK.

I am not sure if this is your problem but i will throw it out anyway.
The bolt threads are close to the out side edge of the flange and can crack to the seal surface, causing a leak.
Maybe the crack can close up and not be seen when the bolt is not tight and spreading it,and it is missed. :hmmm:
