Hello Everyone. Name is Josh and here's my short story....

I have a 74 Nova that I bought 10yrs ago when I was 18. Did a "nice" Macco paint job and rebuilt the 350. Was my daily driver for 3 years then I went into the Marine Corp and it has been sitting ever since. I got the itch again, and now have a little money, so I am back at it. I completely gutted the car and realized it wasn't worth restoring. I found a awesome 72 Nova with all the body work done but gutted on ebay. I bought it and it's she is in transit!

I have been doing a lot of reading and will be using the SEARCH button but....
couple of questions.

I am pretty sure I am going to run Mark Jones's 505 big block. I have read very good things about his engines but if any of you have other experiences let me know. I am in the process of ordering a new gas tank and sending unit and would like to know if I should run a return line? Also; I need a set of big block frame mount but can't find them.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to meeting a lot of you.....I will be here often!!

Ok found the mounts...sorry about that. Are the mounts for the 396 the same as the 454?
Welcome to the site. where are you located in Wisconson?
Waukesha....Just west of Milwaukee
welcome, that 72's going to be cool, by the way if the 72's rear is stock you might want to use the 74's stronger 8.5 10 bolt. Cant wait for some pics!
thanks.... I already swapped my 74 rearend out with my old 79 trans-am . I put 3.90 richmond gears it in when I did the swap. I will take that rear end out and put it into the 72 unless I go to a 9in.

BTW- I have a lot of good parts from my 74 if you need anything- I am going to do a complete custom interior and my 74 interior was in pretty good shape.
