67 Big Block=preparing for install, advice

1967 Camaro. I have my big block together, but need a suggestion on clutch, flywheel(4 speed), starter and exhaust manifolds. Also will the HEI distributor fit? Anyone got these extra parts laying around and needing to get rid of them?
Thanks! Neil H. in Alabama

CENTERFORCE DUAL FRICTION IS A GOOD CHOICE FOR HI-PERF SREET USE,HIGH TORQUE FACTORY STYLE STARTER AND PREFERABLY HEADERS,,,,,HEI WILL FIT AS LONG AS YOU HAVE BIG BLOCK FRAME MOUNTSwww.hardcoreparts.ca

Re: 67 Big Block=preparing for install, advice

Make sure you get proper flywheel for internal or external balance, depending on your engine.

I switched SB to BB in my '68 SS and the full-size HEI dist. would not fit. I ended up getting a smaller dist. I used correct frame mounts and engine mounts for '67-'68, still would not fit.

I use the Centerforce clutch and really like it. Pedal pressure is close to stock.

I use one of the small heavy-duty starters. It weighs about half as much as a full-size starter and cranks my 11:1 454 over with no sweat at all.

You will need to get a BB Z-bar since you are talking a stick car.

And BB metal frame and correct rubber motor mounts too.

I used a poly tranny mount by just kicking my Muncie's tailhousing over and then using the middle hole and bolted it through to the pass. side crossmember hole! Works fine b/c I think the later cars only use one center tranny bolt anyway.
