    What are the 472 or 500 BB crank centerline & deck height measurements?

    Hello every one, sending much love to all those who have given me answers and read my questions to see if you could help me. Thanks greatly! So here I go again! What are the 472 or 500 BB crank centerline & deck height measurements?
    Im almost considering not doing this BB cad in my s-series if these measurements are way off from BB chevy. Can anyone hook me up with this info. I greatly apreciate it.

    The "Big Inch Cadillac" book says that the deck height on their motor was 10.814".

    Here is a update on my specs.
    The Cadillac 472 is a .5 inch shorter from the back of the motor to the water pump fan pulley compared to a short Chevy 454.
    The Cadillac 472 is 5 inches difference from the lowest point of sump to the highest point on the intake compared to a short Chevy 454.
    The Cadillac 472 is 1.5 inches wider from valve cover to valve cover compared to a short Chevy 454.
    All the rest is the same.
    It looks good on paper. Motor mount mock up is the only thing left.
