Well after some careful measuring and calculating I will only have to shove the engine about a foot through the fire wall. I must change my nose plans. This calls for a longer hood. If I use the hood I have it can be lengthened by a foot and narrowed at the rear to fit the cowl again. The other option is to use a KB6 or larger truck grill and hood tops. After pulling the inspection covers off of the bell housing it looks like I can use a 1/2" thick plate on the back of the engine and redrill a flathead flywheel to bolt to the crank and use an 8BA adapters ring off of a truck to go to my aluminum adapter for the T5 trans that I have. The only issue I can see with that is starter to oil pan clearance.
