I have a 1967 Camaro that I have been rebuiding. Iinstalled a 454 big block in the car. I then installed a pair of Moroso tall Chrome valve covers because i'm runnung roller rocker arms. My windshield wiper motor will not fit anymore on the car. I'm tired of using rain x. PLEASE HELP ME>

hi
i had the same problem..no easy solution. i never drive in the rain anyway so i shelved the wiper motor. if you register it as an antique here in wv, you don't need an inspection sticker either. i guess you could move the engine forward..........
good choice on engines!!!!!

Did you use big block frame mounts? (not the (rubber)engine mounts, but the brackets that bolt to the frame.) Using the correcr frame mounts, and shorter valve covers will give you enough room for the wiper motor.
