I finally got the ZZ502 and Turbo 400 mounted in the chassis of my 57. Now I need to get a Drop Center Link to clear the oil pan (this is the better/easier way to go versus a new/different oil pan, right?). Where is the best place to get one of these drop center links? Thanks in Advance!!

In my 64 Nova days, we built our own, or did the tunnel through the pan (not easy or reccommended).

Try East Coast Chevy or Eckler's CCI...I'm fairly sure either or both carry the dropped centerlink.

Yep, East Coast Chevy aka Ol'55 make them. I got one. They stamp their name into the metal just in case you like to worry, I guess.

It's all good. mostly

Agree with the others on East Coast Chevy. I got mine from them, solved my problem and it works great. You have to send them your center link and they send you a modified one. Good luck with the build.
