Dave,

My ratio is between 1.566 and 1.57

9.33 divided by 5.95 equals 1.568

So take your 1/8 mile time and multiply by 1.57 to get you in the ball park.

The reason I was asking is because the older cranks, pre-79, won't fit because the counterweights are too large. The newer cranks will fit. I ran into this when I was test fitting my 466 rotating assembly in the A460 block. What year is your crank?
