<VV> Balance point for power pack

Quoting the '60 Shop Manual, "The center of gravity or balance point of the
complete power train is located approximately .200" behind the front face of
the cylinder block." I assume this is with a 3-speed manual transmission.
A Powerglide only adds about 20# to the 460# of the complete unit, so I
wouldn't expect that option to move it much. Other variations of
engine/transmission shouldn't have much effect either.
I find it somewhat amusing that they say "approximately" then quote the
position down to one thousandths of an inch.

Where is the balance point for the Corvair engine with Differential&
Transmission attached? I am thinking where bell housing attaches to engine
block but not sure. Thanks John Gull
