Jon I had the same problem as you. I put a big block in a small block car I had bought, and the first thing that I ran into was the header and the steering box. I used small block frame mounts with moroso short solid mounts. The power steering hit the header so since I would not be driving the car very much I used a manual gear box. One thing that I was told would not work was the clutch linkage, but since I used the small block mounts the clutch linkage worked off the small block set up. The car has been up and running for a month now and is a BLAST to drive. This is my first big block car but the swap was pretty painless.
