What's in the Box

Merchant Response:

Thanks for the feedback. This unit may require modification to the main caps and/or fitting or grinding of the girdle is likely depending on the crankshaft stroke, etc. to fit your specific application.

This girdle sits on top of the main caps (where the head of the main bolt normally sits).

Sorry we do not list a maximum stroke for this girdle. With longer than stock stroke and/or aftermarket rods it is common to need to grind on the girdle for clearance to the rods.

Yes this girdle should work fine with a stock rear sump oil pan. Some modification to the girdle is common however.
