Engine Tilt on a NC

Post by mike n helen »

I'm in the process of building an engine for my NC, and while talking to a guy who was about to do the same he asked the question, "what angle in the engine mounted at". "It's not tilted, it's verticle" was my answer, but when I got home and checked turns out he was right, the engine does have a tilt on it leaning towards the exhaust side of the car.

Does anybody know what angle the engine is mounted at??

Why does it matter? Won't it just bolt up to the trans at the correct angle?

Yeah, curious as to why he wants to know myself. It's not like the answer changes where he bolts on the engine mounts.
