Which Big Block heater core cover is that? Is there one that fits all cars or a "special" one that fits the 4th gen?

Thanks, even though I have a small block I never did like the location of the heater hoses behind the valve covers. The big block way looks cleaner, I thinks.

if gm put a 427 in 77 this how it would looked to me

if chevy had ever been nice enough to put a 427 in a 77 i think this how it would have looked ,i allready have people think it was born there ,you can not see in this pic but it has OEM 396 cast exhaust manifolds

also finished up the brake lines and now the rear disc seem to work right and the peddle feels great so far maybe now it will stop

thanks ,well in 1985 i did but big block springs in it but ended only doing a small block
as it has been on jack stands for the last 10 years i am about sure how it going to look , the front was pretty high and i have real tall tires on the back

so the whle care was kinda high
