engine dimensions
Just can't stay away

I'm trying to find the whole engine dimensions somewhere: how far is it from the bottom of the oilpan to the top of the oil fill cap? Is there a dimensioned drawing anywhere? I'm trying yet another engine swap, putting an A14 into another really tiny car, and I'd love to see a side drawing. I just measured one of mine with a yardstick and came up with "about 500mm" but I'd sure like something more accurate.
Also, I sure wish the oil filler cap were on the rear rather than the front. Maybe it's time to fabricate a valve cover.
Anyway. If there's a page on the wiki that has a dimensioned drawing I'd love to know about it. I've been looking for a while and haven't found it.

good question

we really need that. Somebody with an engine out of the car could measure it

As far as I recall we only have two diagrams:
* Flywheel & Gearbox bolt dimensions from Datsun
* Block mounting dimensions also see Block Comparison : Dimension

Maybe this will help (don't forget to add gasket thicknesses)
* Cylinder head thickness is 74 mm
* A14 block deck height is 204.1 mm
* looks like 15cm from oil pan rail to bottom of sump
