Interesting aside about 650 motors in 500 frames

So, with a 650 motor in the 78 Standard frame, the 500 carbs can not be put in between the motor and the frame without removing all the engine bolts and tipping the motor forward slightly. I know I didn't have this issue on the 82 Custom... anyone else experience the same?

So how much modification was needed when porting the 650 to the '82 frame? It sounds like you had to keep a lot of the stock '82 items and just move the block.
