ive always wondered about this.
or is it just a number/name not meaning much else other than large pattern and small pattern?
The reference is to the angle between cylinder banks of the V engines. It does not refer to anything about the form or shape of the bellhousing itself. your right about it simply meaning a difference between the large and small pattern.
