    Clutch pivot ball find ????

     



    Hi all, first off nobody really knows exactly what the engine is where installing but the casting number is 3970010 and we know itís a Chevy small block!! The 1965 Chevy 327 small block that weíre replacing clutch ball is too big to fit in the hole on the new 3970010 engine!! And I need one yesterday. Any thoughts??

    I guess I need to find out what engine it is first though and why my old one doesn’t fit ?? Shouldn’t a 327 bolt fit a 350 or 302 sb ??

    If you're saying the threaded shaft is too big to screw in, drill oversize and rethread
