They added 1/4" to the overall height to compensate for the thickness of the adaptor plate, so no spacer is needed between the flywheel and crank. I had them leave the bolt holes blank - I'll drill those this week and then mount the flywheel to the engine I weighed my original flywheel and the new one - new one is 8lbs lighter! Thanks for all the input - very appreciated.
Here's a picture of my adaptor (can you spot what happens when I get in a hurry?)
I know other racers have done this to get a straighter shot from the carb(s) to the intake valves. What is your reason for wanting to try slanting? Hood clearance? Weight bias? Other?benchracer":di72nxpl said:I have read a few post with hints of slanting a 300. Any input or people who have done this or photos.

If you are serious here is the rear plate dimensions so you can make an adapter plate between the engine and transmission so the engine can lay over.benchracer":ukz7ir7e said:Had dodge slant 6 liked the look. I thought it give more room for a turbo an balanced intake. They put old offys over 45 degrees!
