Re: Engine frame mount position
Dave, Do you have the cowl induction air cleaner ? I do not have it, so my air cleaner sits up inside the cut out. Remember the cowl induction was designed to be used with the stock height intakes etc. If your intake is too high you may be able to cut down the outside ring of the cowl air cleaner, so it will fit. You may want to make one out of a cake pan.
What size are the header tubes on your Super Comp Headers ? The standard "competition headers" are 1 5/8" diameter, and usually will fit. Any size larger and you may have issues. The Dougs D368 are 1 3/4 tube, but they will contact the idler arm, if you do not have the stock size arm. (The Moog replacement will not clear !)
The distributor is close to the firewall, when you have a 302 or 350 with an 8" harmonic balancer. This is so the balancer will not contact the sway bar. I had to dent my firewall so an HEI would fit. The best solution is to use a small bodied distributor or to convert your points distributor to electronic with a kit from Pertronix or others.
Do not believe the "change your frame mounts." thing. You can't do it with an 8" balancer. (99% of the time or unless you have a Hotchkis style sway bar.)
