    I had leaks at the block-off-plates. My mechanic found that the bolts I had used were a little too long for their holes, not allowing the bolt heads to seal off the gaskets. He used shorter bolts and corrected the leaks.

      I’m in the process of replacing the engine in my 51 champion. The donor engine was from a flathead six. I placed the oil filler tube towards the generator . Where does the oil dipstick go? The oil sump is is to the rear near tranny.

        That would depend on the YEAR of the replacement Block and whether a Truck or Car Engine.

        See your own String this.

        You May have put the Filler Tube in the wrong Hole if it has no dipstick hole at the Rear, you need to move the Pipe to the Rear Hole and Buy a Dipstick Oil Cap.
