    Gen 3 is not rare, well maybe in Austrilia but defnatly not in NZ

    GEN3 onwards can be stood up, gen 1/2 not worth standing up, unless you like muching bearing constantly

    I have been there done that

    Get a gen 3 or forward motor and you fine

    Gen1 and 2 is wasted of time

    I have pics of my gen 2 conversion if anyone wants to see

    Sump does not matter, but is a factor

    Gen 1 and Gen 2 motors head like to act like swimming pool for oil when the are stood upright, so they fill up and the oil stays in the head and never return to the sump, then oh no whats going to lubricate my bearing, oh no its all in the head, oh no i have run bearings

    Gen 3 apparntly have been returns form the head so they don't suffer form the same issue

    I know for a fact that gen4 onwards can defantly be stood up no issues

    I am merely passing on information I have gianed form doing this conversion before

    If i was to do it again, I use a late model single cam beams head, with a gen 4 caldina bottom end

    nah, engine mount on the exhaust side is like 10mm higher.

    Ive binned the baffle in the exhaust side of the cam cover plus its a brand new head so the drains should be smick. Considering chopping the xmemeber tho, might have to put the engine in and see what sort of room i have to play with.
