    I built up a '76 500 OK. Like you, I've built a bunch of Chev SB engines. I think the file for the '73 should work OK for you. It's a straight-forward engine to work on. Timing the cam is different than a Chevy, but using the marks on the sprockets will get you there. Number 1 cyl isn't at firing- top-center like a Chevy when the timing marks are lined up.

    For folks doing a re-build on a 472/500, there is a stainless steel front plate available from www.cad500parts.com (Flashcraft) The original front sheet metal plate is often rusted/pitted and prone to leaks. The water pump is mounted there etc. Last time I looked, the new plate is $125.

    Hello

    I'm having problems when trying to download the PDF. It says "Not found".

    Can someone re-upload the PDF, please?
