The 70 Nova came out with a 396 with AC, so I doubt there would be any difference with a 454. I'm not sure if the 71
Nova came out with a 454. Thats when everybody was down-sizing the gas guzzlers. It's a tight fit but they will fit.
Just Goggle and look at a 70 engine bay.
Dave . . . there is a difference for sbc heater core "outlets" & bbc heater box & heater core outlets. ( on non a/c cars) . How might that effect the factory a/c "suitcase" ? . . .
or would it make any difference . Hey - I'm just a 'six fan' - - I know nothing . . . . 🇯🇵
I did some snooping and found a few things. There are two different firewalls when they built the 68-72 Novas. One for AC/Heater and one just for the non AC car. If your car has the AC already it shouldn't matter. The difference is the hole in the firewall. In the AC cars the hole is smaller.
Ok folks I am looking for some help in engineering an "Out of the box" solution for a problem I have with my 66 Chevy II.
I have a 871 blown 355 in my car and I have good coolant temp control whenever the car is moving, not an issue, if I am driving, even at low speeds like 10 mph, she will keep...
As tittle says I'm looking for a reputable brand other than Griffin for 72 Nova with 350 SBC, manual trans and looking for a direct fit or close to.
I was quoted over 1000$ cdn for a Griffin.
Does anyone have any experience with Champion radiators. I am looking at there 3 row part # cc6267 along with the factory shroud. Currently i have not had any major overheating issues but if i get caught in traffic i start to get nervous. So i am just looking to stay ahead of the game.
So the 1970 Nova did not come factory with a coolant overflow tank (from what I have read). I noticed that my radiator always balances out to have about 2-3 inches of low coolant when cool. If I fill the radiator completely and drive it then it will puke out a fair bit upon stopping and parking...
