Good to know. I had the same problem on my 67. I thought maybe the big block was just really thirsty.

Not much demand here in Manitoba. I have 2 12 bolts here for 65-70 Impalas that will probably end up going to the shredder. I can't see one selling for more than $150.

I had a hell of a time finding the proper radiator when I swapped the big block into my '67. I ended up with Spectra #CU289, which is a 3 core rad that fits reasonably well.

My definition of a period street race car is 4.56 gears, rectangle port heads, factory aluminum intake and L-88 cam. You'd have to limit compression to around 10:1 for pump gas and run no less than...

Look for the '601' casting head that was used on late 70's 305s. They have a small chamber around 56cc but the intake valves are bigger at 1.84" instead of the 1.72" on the 283.

There are not many different pistons for the 402. If it is a cast piston, it will have around .100 dome height. This will give you no more than 8:1 compression. If it is a forged piston from an L78...

Where to find body bushings for a '67 Impala?

Where can I find rubber body bushings for a 1967 Impala? Preferably a kit that comes with OEM style bolts. I would also like to hear feedback from those that have used an aftermarket kit.

If you swap to the bigger Pontiac/Olds rear it will come equipped with a bigger yoke that will accept a Saginaw U-joint. The Saginaw is about halfway in size between the 1310 and 1350.
