hey appreciate that info. , I will look at that website. You are the second person to tell me about chevy II recessed oil filter. Will that motor fit a standard 62, 63 model with standard suspension for 6 cylinder? I am fixing up a 63 Chevy II now. I thought I would have to get front sump pan to make work. I am familiar with all the different ways to convert this car but this is new info. for me.

You will still need the front sump pan because of the front crossmember.

The recessed oil filter on the Chevy II blocks was done so that there would be room for manual transmission column linkage and the clutch bellcrank and linkage. Some of the Chevy II restoration suppliers carry an adapter bracket for the block to allow a standard block to be used with a mechanical linkage clutch in these early cars.
