Is that the TCI clip? Mine doesn't have a plate mounted on the cross member I I don't see the threaded mounts on the A-arms for the sway bar.

Plus it doesn't kick in an inch like the TCI.

Are their (Heidts) motor mounts still centered, or have they finally offset them for the Chevy II ?

Looking great!

I've done a '67 before and working on a '62 wagon currently. Going with the Smith Racecraft front clip.

Are you going to run an intank pump in your stocker - or sump it? I've narrowed mine as well and plan on doing an intank pump. I don't want the noise of an inline...

You said the motor came out of an '01 Camaro? Are you using the stock F body accessory configuration and was the motor set up for a non a/c cofiguration or did you do that? I have the same issue with an LS1 in a Chevelle and I wondered if you knew the part # for that pulley/idler in place of the a/c pump.

BTW, I be the wife loves doing the laundry in the middle of all that!

Which brake booster are you using. I am ready to buy one now and I was concerned that there was going to be a problem with the oil filler tube (whateve it does on the driver side) on the valve cover.

Mines on the passenger side. Try switching valve covers.

I just ordered a Booster/cylinder prop valve yesterday from ABSpowerbrakes.com. Best price, quality stuff and nice folks to talk to.

295 for the whole assembly.
