I know I've asked this in previous iterations of our trivia game but I've got a lot going on right now and this is all I can think of.

How can you tell, using only a ruler, whether a bellhousing or automatic transmission case fits a small block or big block Mopar engine?

  Ok... I'll give it a stab in the dark... I'm sure there is more to it than this.

  Measure the holes on the block and then measure the holes on the bell housing. If the numbers match they fit. 

  Anything other than that I have no idea.

  Measure from the center of the flywheel out to the bolt holes where the bellhousing sits and compair that with the bellhousing by measuring off the input shaft.

Sorry, the answer I'm looking for is simpler than that.

All you need is to take a single measurement on the bell housing, which will tell you right away whether it fits a small or big block.  No need to measure anything on an engine or even have an engine around.  (This is a quick way to tell, in a junkyard or swap meet, which engines a bell housing or automatic tranny fits.)

Wow, I might just have to get out one of each and try it to see if I can get the answer.

I don't know from experience but I'll guess the distance between the two bolt holes at the top.
 Huh

Almost the answer ... which is closer together and which is farther apart?

I would say the big block is farther apart.
