I wish you all the best on the move and the shop, man.  Does that mean you won't be going to Napierville anymore?   lol

 

 

I'll go to Napierville...

Looking good E. I have my new engine on the stand but its not going in until this winter. Still trying to get the suspension/brakes and new Steering box installed. I ordered one of the new Borgeson steering boxes based off the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It gives about 2" more header clearance and sheds something like 12lbs off the front of the car. Might help with your swap.

 

We can line em up next year at LX and beyond ;-)

Joel the headers clear the stock steering box by a mile. You gotta do a slight trim job on the lower mounts. Mine are solid though so it was a piece of cake with the cutoff wheel.

^^that's a nice change from the old big blocks and long tubes. That was usually one if the two hardest things to work around, the steering box and the starter.

 

Good stuff.

Finally got it into the shop to start fitting some parts and pieces before the move to Ohio. Motor and trans are in for mockup.

Dragged it out of it's winter hibernation spot.

 

 

motor ready to go in.

Congrats on a great project!

I was wondering what headers you are using, you say you have plenty of clearance around the steering box.

Correct. Trans is a 727. Headers are TTI. I haven't had a chance to do anymore on it due to the move. It will be a little while before I am all settled in.

I was pretty sure it was a 727, so do you have to use an adapter to bolt up the 727 ?
