I have a 67' with a small block and the stud for my clutch linkage is a quarter inch from the fire wall. The engine mounts on the frame don't look right to me so I'm not sure if there the correct ones. If anyone has a picture of what they look like I'd appreciate it.thanks

Check the condition of your body mounts. If the bushings are shot and the holes are rusted out that subframe could be shifted to the rear. Just a thought.

No, my clutch linkage has been fine since I put it in 5 years ago, and until a week ago, my body mounts were shot.

I never really looked at the clearance, car was together when I converted from pg, just know it don't hit nuttin. Can't check now, engines kinda far away from the frame...lol

Hmmm....do i remember reading here in the past week, something about if you put the crossmember in backwards your trans will sit high? That could do it.

Hi ! I just wanted to add that a 327 or 307 car and a 350 or 302 use different frame mounts. Not all small blocks used the same mounts. This may or may not be causing your problem, but I did want you to be aware of this.

Well I finally solved the problem. This is my first american car and I bought it as a roller so I'm learning as I go along. I had the stud for the linkage in the side of the bellhousing. I went and looked at my buddies spare 350 and there was a spot above the oil filter that was not drilled in my 400. So I pulled the steering column and now have a spot drilled and tapped after a nervous 2 hours.Thanks for the help
