Boss 429 engine dimensions
« on: August 09, 2019, 04:15:42 pm »
Boys,
Need some help…what are the measurements of the Boss 429 engine from the rear of the block (where the bell housing bolts to) all the way to the front of the water pump. Thanks in advance.
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 6 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase headed, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!

30 5/16 inches to the water pump pulley flange on the water pump.

 Thanks, Fred!

If you want to measure anything else, the engine is on my stand waiting to jump into the car.  ;) Come on by as you are close to my place!!
