soon i am starting on an engine project.
i have a 67 camaro, original a 250 6cyl with a four speed manual.
but the previous owner swapped it with a (69) 327 V8.
the block itself has multiple problems.
burning oil, stinks like hell.
a worn out or wrong spec carburator.
broken fuel pump and leaking waterpump.
recently a freeze plug also started leaking.
anyway, i allready puchased a 454 with a th400 in good condition.
so now i am seeking parts and good! advice for this project.
i have a lot of questions.
what do i still need, what would make everything easier ?
i also am swapping the engine mounts. i have mounts that fit
the block and mounts for the frame side, but will they fit ?
can anyone tell me what i need ?
what bolts should i use for the frame side ?
the previous owner welded them to the frame...
what headers can i use ? as i do not have any originals...
i presume the crossmember also needs changing ?
do i need a longer drive shaft ?
should i swap the rear axle, or upgrade it ?
soon i will be placing an order at summit, so a direct link to the part would be very nice.
thanks in advance,
