I am swapping a v8 into my '63. I have the complete kit from chevy2only. I have also read, that getter a smaller flywheel 153 tooth and high performance starter is needed for the swap. Is required? Does make life easy on the install?
The 153 tooth flywheel works with the 10 1/2 in clutch. You need the right bell housing which would be a 403 or 383 as I recall but actually may require a different bell come to think of it as you have a first Gen Nova. The first gen guys can help you there. Also you will need a starter with a different nose on it than the automatic starter because the auto flex plate and trans housing are slightly different..
