  1. 63' v8 distributor cap & firewall

    Drivetrain & Performance
    I swapped in a v8 into my 1963. I did not mod the firewall to allow wiggle room for the distributor cap, so it is a tight fit. I am looking for any tips for creating room for the cap. I would like to not beat the firewall. I am open to pulling the cap, cutting the wall, and welding back in a...
  2. Flattening the Firewall and painting engine bay

    Body and Interior
    73 Nova, 2 door, 350/TH350 with factory A/C A few months ago I spun a bearing and pulled my engine. While trying to decide what to do about the engine I figured I should at least get the engine bay looking good and have it ready for an engine. The car originally had A/C but the previous owner...

    Body and Interior
    I am going to put a 327 with a HEI distributor into a 71 nova, I have been told I have to massage the firewall back 1/2 in to an inch, I have body hammers, dollys, and a porta power for the job, what I don’t know is where to massage it, some say the crease above the tranny housing others say the...
  9. firewall to frame braces (also cage and sub frame connectors) - et reduction

    Drag Racing Forum
    I'd like to hear from anyone that's installed a set of firewall to frame braces on their '68-'72. I believe the Camaro guys call these "firewall G-braces". The new bb motor had about 3/4" vertical movement. (When putting the car on a lift, it was first noticed.) I have a tight fit of the...
