your monte carlo bar should go right over top of it I think.but only one way to find out. the hei if it is a good one wont be bad,just big & ugly,I called mine the big ugly. blocks the view of the motor. I had them on 2 SBFs ,took one off my comet, & a buddy bought it. had trouble with one the pick up coil went out,had to pull the whole thing out to replace it. it had a 2 piece shaft put together with a coupling & roll pins. I think it allowed the shaft to wobble & during a high rpm romp the pickup coil pointer hit the contact star & tore itself apart. I was afraid to stomp it after that.

Do me a favor and give us a true review on that engine after say 6 months. My company took on Marshall Engines (blueprint) as a jobber about 20 years ago. We had nothing but problems. I hope that has been taken care of. That being said, I remember the 70's when Jasper Engines were nothing but junk. Now they are a very reputable company. Good luck, and I'd sell that ugly GM thing if it were me.
