Default Help - Pilot Sbach 29%, 87" span

Can anyone help me with a measurement? Trying to sort out engine - header - pipe combo but have not received the model yet. Looking for the vertical distance from the center line of the crankshaft to the center line of the canister tunnel. I'm guessing in is close to 50mm or 2". Thanks for your help.

Not sure I understand your question excactly, but from the centerline on the
firewall to the bottom of the motor box is 2 inches, from there down to the center of the
tunnel is 2 1/4 inches...hope this helps....

Thanks dryverman! I think we are on the same page.

If you mount the engine on the firewall as per instructions and measure from the crankshaft centerline at the firewall straight down to the centerline of the canister tunnel your answer is 4-1/4" .

Correct?

Yes.

Did you know you can download the manual on Chief's website?
