Re: 69 Big Block in 68 Camaro
Dynaflash, I decided to put the answer to your PM for all to see.
Hello, it they put that combo in a '69 you should be able to do it in a '68. The problems you will encounter by doing this, are :
1) If you switch to a long water pump you will have to move your alternator to the passenger side, and the a/c compressor (if equipped) to the drivers side.
2) you must change all of your pulleys and accessory brackets to the long water pump style. Short water pump and long water pump have ALL different pulleys and brackets ! Not just one pulley !
Your short water pump will work just fine. I would not switch them.
