They don’t have to work on it after though! Like when ford put the 429 SCJ in the Mustangs, it fit, but they didn’t have to pull the motor to change the plugs so it was all good!

IIRC, weren't the shock towers cleared at the factory with a sledgehammer for the big block cars?

What a f'in mess. I think it'd be more telling to take a before and after of the parts pile. How much more you think before the body goes back on?
I don't really know I'm just going to keep going until there's nothing left on or under the table.
That’s because an engineer didn’t have to work on it , it just looked good on the computer and fit the space.
100% correct and it all weaves and intertwines that's why I'm leaving everything loose until I have it all laid out correctly.
Well, somebody made it fit in the space.
Yes and so will I. I'm sure if I ever have to do another one or work on this one again I'll have a much better understanding of what's going on.

Exactly or plugs in a V8 Chevy Monza

You know, someone told me that pagrunt stopped by for a free estimate on his recent deer hit as a pretext to leave a random part added onto your table. I think he even made sure it came off a derelict dmax so it wouldn't be obvious. Something deep I close to the block, can't remember what though....
