As stated above, it's a GM block. The center bolts on the valve covers is indicative of vortec heads, too. That's a plus.

My garage door is 7' 11" and mine fits. I use a 2X6, about 30" tall to rest the tower on so it doesn't completely fold forward and impact the top of the boat by the handrails. The 2X6 is placed...
