    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.
