I am restoring a 68 and I dont know anything about its history. it has no drivetrain in it, and Id like to find out what I have mounting stuff. The frame mounts are on the car but I have no idea if they were big block or small block. Any way to tell? I guess while Im at it, any way to tell if my front end is setup for small or big block? (springs etc).
Thanks
Bob

Bob, I believe you'll find part #'s on the mounts.. post those back and someone will chime in on which they are for if they dont already post the #s for which is which.

Radiator will be a clue as far as size and how upper hose connection is, how heater connections are on fire wall, in center top of the suitcase is big block, to drivers side of case is small block.

thanks Ill check out the numbers in the morning. There is no radiator or any drivetrain components. Everything from the firewall forward is gone with the exception of the frame rails, suspension.
I do now have a big block to put in it and just want to make sure I have all the right suspension parts so i dont drop it in and have it scraping the ground

I just looked, the numbers are a little vague, but it appears to be 3945508 for the passengers side.

I think that may be for a small block but not sure. The two should be the same height if they are small blocks, and a bit higher on the drivers side if they are big block mounts. Heres some more info on purchasing.

Ok yup, looking like small block stuff. I guess with that in mind, its safe to assume the rest of my suspension is setup for small block? What else would I need to change out, just the springs i would guess, right?

That would depend on what motor you want to put in.. Springs will likely be fine if all else shows as sb stuff. If your going to go to a big block then most of the stuff mentioned will have to be upgraded to the big block equip.
