Yes,I had noticed it once before but didn't want to rely on my memory.The intake boss and the bore in the block all have to be machined to this angle or it would not work.It is just how SBC and BBC are made.

speedydeedy I built the equivalent to a ZZ383 crate engine and I just went look at it and my big block.They both look just like yours.It is hard to tell with a carb and air cleaner but I don't have a firewall yet so I looked from the back on my SBC and my BBC is on a stand with no carb so I got to look from both ends and they are clearly leaning just like yours so you are fine.I have over 100,000 miles on the BBC and never had trouble.

speedydeedy Even the best of us can make a mistake. Are you sure the cap is properly seated on the dist.?

Ok guys, what is going on here? I have never seen a distributor sit like this. New GM crate with new Performer intake.
