Re: Small Block to Big Block - 67 Coupe
Been there, done it all!!
I installed NOS '67 BB frame mounts and full poly that I wished I'd bought my stock, easy rip apart 350 rubber mounts and drilled them and bolted them tight w/ 3/8" bolts and stuff! The whole engine would fit lower is all here.....
I have right at 525 pound, cut down MOOG 5536 coil springs to take my 496's weight.
Sucker really sit's low, but has good ground clearance imho.
I did not change out my SB's heater box b/c, altho it's tight, my heater hoses fit fine.
I also bought a BB re-pop Z-bar so it is fine!!
I will say tho that way back when I installed my hopped up, high compressioned, .060" ovebore, 409 "W" engine I dropped it 100 percent on my 350's stocki stuff just like it came from the factory back then..
Radiator, a '66 Buick Special A/C 4-core copper rad. is the exact same as ours except it is trough mounted instead of side plate mounted like ours! I have one under my work bench now b/c I changed it out for a cheap Summit house/Northern Aluminum Rad. wide 2-core. I installed it for my 409....
