It’s a dual plane with the divider milled.  Just like the performer rpm air gap manifolds.  Gm knew that milling the divider was worth power 40 years ago on the big blocks.  But I agree for this application it’s not really necessary.

Thats what I was thinking Joe and Ray I already own the Edelbrock 2.0 in the shed so save money there I just didnt want to be talked into a manifold that was almost just like i had for the sake of making a sale

I would guess them at +5 cc as a good guess.  Depending on the compression calculator you use, a dish is a positive CC addition.  So that's what I would use. Is that the oil pan out of the motorhome? That looks like a big sump on that pan, but could be the picture.

Got this from Old Owner to the Motorhome....
Anthony, not sure if you remember or not but I was told the original owner died and the son drove it to Illinois from Mississippi or somewhere down south and didn't want to use it at all. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the engine or trans. Good tune up and fresh fluids and you would've been fine.

Now with that Info I am checking Bearings and if good I am installing Cam heads and Intake , Carb and seeing where I'm at ..............

Btw Had to tone cam choice down after talking with some others that used the same Cam and ran into alot of probs ONE actually took out 6 of the pistons OUCH but he had bigger valves SO I am pretty sure thats what Prob was anyways

Cam is here Balancer Puller is here So now game on its ready to get this going

Update: Motor is apart Cam was well Tired to say the least BUT for a 67 thousand Mile Motor home motor, Cam was not really all that bad (NO Not reusing) anyhow its dissembled Have to pull cam bearings for sure Will check crank and main when I pull a cap or two off in next few days and Some one asked about the Oil pan difference I dont remember who BUT took a side by side to show difference from RV to car pan

Also with the balancer I am looking to replace it because of the grommet cracking and coming out of the groove so have been advised to R/R it But replacement one is different it only has two drilled Holes in it instead of 3 in my mine and weighs 15.25 (new one) I haven't weighed mine yet the second one BOTH SAY direct replacement and the Second one weighs 15.40 pounds.  

Anyways Enjoy pictures Cant wait to get this Back together WOOT WOOT

The cam that came out looks perfect. I would not be hard pressed to leave the cam bearings alone and put it together. As far as the balancer, the holes mean nothing. That is to neutral balance the hub. The counterweight is the important part. Generally they are pretty close but you can have the two of them spin balanced to make sure they are equal. I asked the question about the oil pans because the picture looked funny and many people have tried to install truck pans not knowing there was a difference.

A factory stock timing cover will work just fine and behind the water pump, you can't see it anyway. I ran stock covers on all my race engines until 2017 when I built the 980 hp 565.

Ya I know Ray, just the water pump I will be using is polished so just thought it would look better aluminium behind it.

The two I have is one chrome (rusty) and the the dented stock one (had a oopps while transferring from hoist to stand)
