    Does anyone know if the V-8 and slant 6 center links are the same on a 65 Belvedere?

    I can't say for sure but, it only makes sense. Extra parts cost the factories more.

    That is a good question as I know the early A bodies are different slant 6 to V8. Trying to think if I have a slant 6 one to compare with a V8.

    My 65 was a slant 6. Now V8 K frame from another 65 but used all the Slant steering parts.

      Thought so but not at all sure. but '65 is a very odd year. Many different parts.

      Also the big block oil pan on the early cars (up to 65 ?) were slightly narrower from pan rail to the centerlink.
      1.26 inches '64-'65,'66-'72 shows a depth of 1.56 inches. C body pans in '65-'66 were 2.46 inches.
      And last the HP pans of '70-'72 were 1.70 inches.
      Oh, 1 more '73-'78 pans were 1.75 inches. So who know what ya got.
