Hopefully in a couple of months I will be putting my engine back in.I bought a mallory HEI to replace the points dist.I have seen several HEI dist in 69 but they are very close to the firewall. Will they fit without modification or do I need to make some room while the motor is out?If what is the best way to make room besides a hammer?
it's a cr*pshoot, some do some don't. I've only tried once, it didn't without some altering. I've read where people have loosened the subframe and shoved it forward to make em fit. One things for sure, don't have the cap on when you put the motor in.

this is a small block, correct?
if you have mounts for a 350- then, no, it might not fit. some do, some don't- but all are close.
if you have mounts for a 327 or 307- then, yes, it should fit with about 1/2" or so to spare.
you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.
wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
Although a 68, mine came was born with a 6cyl. and when I bought it it had a very tired V8 SB. I replaced it with a 406 sb and installed HEI without any problems (1/4 - 3/8"gap). I have no idea if the motor mounts were stock or not, but were bolted and welded (looked factory) and see no reason why they were welded for a 6...replaced subframe at some point in her life? maybe.
