    Holly Support opened the ones I sent and said that the baffling had fallen apart. As such they sent me new replacements at no charge! I have installed them and the problem is solved, so far so good.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Todd can you tell me if the Holley 20-135 LS Accessory bracket moves the alternator out away from the valve cover further than the GM modified LSA FEAD # 19303244 ? Do you have a drawing with the overall width from center to either cennnter or out side of the Alt?

    Thanks in advance

    Great Minds think alike.. Made the call to support and they asked me to send the mufflers in for evaluation and hopefully replacement. Will let you know the outcome. Regards, Matt

    Greetings, I have an issue with the G-body swap exhaust on my 1986 Monte Carlo SS where the muffler baffling rattles after warm up. The shop I had purchased from is Finishline in Naperville illinois.

    This issue was experienced shortly after purchase and installation at Finishline and was thought to be a clearance issue with my chassis sway bar. They moved the swaybar at that time and it didn't solve the problem, Now, After owning for 2 seasons I have less than 2000 miles on the exhaust and have recently, with the chassis work, now moved the sway bar fully away only to discover that its the muffles making the rattling noise.



    What if any recourse do I have as these mufflers are driving me crazy.?

    Thanks and regards,

    Matt

    Hi Todd,

    What oil pump o-ring do I use with the 302-2 pan's pickup tube? I bought it second hand and need to replace the o-ring. Can I order the part from Holley or can you give me an equivalent part number?

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Todd.....I have a 66 Chevelle with a LSA/4L70E in it.........I built the car with a -1 pan before the -2 Pan came out........Had to put a CV joint driveshaft in it......I want to put your new set-up in it......But I'm concerned about getting the correct engine mounts (forward Bias??) When I get a chance I will measure the passenger head to firewall......Maybe that will help in which one to use....

    Thanks

    Yes, the countersunk bolt/hole configuration was changed on most of the Hooker engine swap brackets about 1.5 years ago due to service issues in the field with the countersunk fasteners...they were becoming stuck in the brackets/engine block without being able to be removed. I was pushing for the change years ago due to personally experiencing the issue multiple times in the design lab and having to suffer through the removal of the bolts.

    Todd,
    I ordered and received the 12618HKR mounts from you guys, and I noticed that the actual engine mounts don't have the countersunk bolt holes and corresponding capscrews. They instead have standard holes and bolts. I haven't seen any pictures of 12618 mounts without countersunk holes. Does this sound right?
    Thanks

    Thank you!
    I just went and purchased a set, as you have this great holiday deal going on!

    Question though, in reading the installation instructions for these, it states; "Due to the 3/4” to 1” forward re-positioning of the transmission required for proper fitment of these headers, it will be necessary to lengthen any driveshaft to be reinstalled from a previous stock transmission location installation." -Holley.
    Link: http://documents.holley.com/199r11034.pdf

    Can you elaborate on this? It is my understanding that the 12618HKR mounts move the engine and trans low and roughly 1" BACK.

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Hi Todd,

    Thank you for the very quick reply there. I didn't expect that.
    I guess I was just surprised, but that makes sense about the exhaust ending up lower than the case would. Only if you have any extra time; [email protected]

    I'm definately set on the 12618 mounts as I want the engine low and setback. Largely for shifter position. I'm 6'1" and i feel like I'm close to being able to use the stock 4th gen Fbody shifter setup. I like all the connectivity I can get with a trans/shifter.

    You may have just made my day! When I read what you said about 2275/76 having converted into the Blackhearts I though "oh no!", but it looks like you still offer a painted long tube that is well within the definition of affordable. Is there a specific PN by chance for the painted long tubes that ONLY go with 12618HKR mounts, or is it most of them? (I know there will be the tube diam differences) I'll look into them more tonight but this is great to know for now.

    Thank you,
    Kyle
