Yes, all 292 are the same. Only Y-blocks that are different are the 312" main bearings.

Sorry Steve I don't. I just tighten them 'snuggly'.

I remember back a ways that someone installed metric studs/bolts. Don't remember what size but it was just slightly larger than the striped hole...

Make sure you put sealant on the studs/bolts on the retainer as since they go thru they themselves can be a source of a weepage.

That is exactly why you should install a PCV system to get rid of all the "blow-by fumes, vaporized or misted oil and steam from condensation" from your crankcase.

Any of those will work, they all tap into the main oil gallery that runs down that side of the engine.

Except the plug just below the freeze plug of course. That's the block water drain.:-X18

The Neoprene seals work good. My current 312" has a Silicone Rubber seal with a billet aluminum seal retainer that's working great.

Don't know of anyplace that has a Heat Riser (https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=heat+riser&type=2button&fr=ymyy-t-564) valve for a Y-Block but perhaps you can find another to fit. Maybe from a FE?

Since your using your truck for towing, go with a four holer. The open plenum design is more for upper RPM power. I believe the original one on a "B" manifold was ~ ˝" thick.

Jeff, The Edelbrock is a good carb. That's what I'm running on my 318" Y-Block. Like most modern carbs it has the port for your PCV valve and both ported and manifold vacuum connections. :-X06:-X06

Just because you have a 600 cfm carburetor on your 272 it does not mean your engine could flow 600 cfm. With that big of a carb I doubt your secondaries are even opening. I would suggest a 390 or 450...
