hey all.... I picked up a shoebox ford with a bad motor (flathead).. I am thinking of dropping in a 283 or 327 sbc and know I will convert to 12V. Can someone give me advice or possible detours i may encounter with this engine choice.. I know this is probably a common thing with classic ford's and sbc motors... I believe I will need after market motor mounts, and will i need a special oil pan to fit and will the exhaust manifolds fit around the steering box? will my stock shoebox ford 3 speed tranny work with the motor? appreciate any help here "before" I get the motor I want to map out what is needed to help save a few headaches... Not my first hotrod, but first with this configuration..
