I have a 67 Camaro 327/275, a 71 Nova M20 Muncie, 71 Nova rearend. I know that I should be able to use all of this equipment in my 67 RS, but I'm curious if I need to change anything that I may over looked; ie, driveline.

I posted a topic about my 71 rearend and I gathered that I can use my rearend but may have to changed the length of the driveline. Now since the tranny is from a 71 Nova would I have to compensate for some kind of distance for that plus the rearend, or is the tranny identical to one for a camaro?

"k" now that said...I don't have a bellhousing yet and When I get mIne at the swap meet, coming up this April, which one would I be looking for?

Any ideas would be great. Thanks Kevin

Hey Kevin, The "corporate" 10 bolts like your 71 were a little longer ( about 1" to 1 1/2") in the front. Generally the driveshaft will need to be shortened. BUT, when the 72 rear was on my car, the driveshaft fit, but was VERY close to the trans. The driveshaft lengths varied a little, so you will have to check yours and see.

The bellhousing is depending on the size flywheel and clutch you plan on using. the 10.5 clutch "403" bellhousing was very popular, so they are reasonable $. The 11" clutch one is the 621(special starter required). BB and high horse SB used that one, so the $$ are higher. Or you can go aftermarket.

The 71 M20 length will depend on the tailshaft length. Can you get that? If it is the same as 69, the the above info will work. If not, you will have some work measuring. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Cool

Use a second gen driveshaft. Should fit U-joint and lengthwise, but, not really sure on length issue. Or use the 71 Nova driveshaft.......

If you have the 71 Nova driveshaft, use it. The 67 - 69 Camaros and 68 - 72 Novas wer built on the same platform. You can use the tranny driveshaft and rear from the Nova and everything should fit for correct length. Good Luck

a Nova has a longer wheelbase than the 67-69 Camaro's that usd the same parts. in other worrds. one of the few driveline parts that are different from Nova to Camaro is the driveshaft. pretty much everything else under the car is the same.
