Yes. It’s a very tight fit with the 2F andF motor runs well. No concerns. At this point, I'm either going to run what is there and leave it an old school ride with safety upgrades, or go all in next winter with the 2F/H42/Split/3.73 combo from the 60. All or nothing.
That said, if I'm going with the sniper I'm also going to do away with points, etc.
Are headers still available from a vendor? Or, does anyone have any kicking around? I've honestly always preferred an OEM solution over aftermarket headers on other vehicles I've owned. I have a 3FE manifold and down pipes around somewhere too. Still, happy to defer to expert opinion down here if headers are the best answer.
@wngrog I thought it was your Pig build where you found the fan/clutch/water pump combo that worked with the 55 OEM set up? Found it Pig fan with clutch
2F fan shroud. Not sure on the F stuff.
Headers. JTOUTFITTERS on eBay.
