Ok, so putting together a tall deck motor with heads and a block that came used and from different sides of the earth. Long story short, the intake does not fit. After very quickly looking at the block deck height it seems ok relevant to the pistons, so I am guessing the heads have been angle milled or cut. (Note the intake is a new dart tall deck intake)
When I set the intake on the block with no gaskets it rests on the front and rear valley ribs. I can push the intake over to one side and can measure just under a 1/4 gap on the other side.
I then lifted the intake and set some thin cardboard under the front and rear ribs and centered the intake between the heads. I could then measure around .150-.160" between the intake and heads on each side, again with no gaskets installed.
Help, where do I go from here?
