1969 302 Engine add-ons
Ok all. Here's my first post to this board. I figured it might go along with this thread, so I am dropping my message here...
I am buying a rebuilt 1969 302 engine (mostly ready to go), which I have not purchased ANYTHING else yet as far as drive-train, flexplate, starter, clutch parts, and so on.
I am performing a drivetrain swap on a '74 TVR 2500M, which to you all is a British sports car about to be turned Hot Rod... It has the Triumph TR6 engine in it right now, using a mechanical clutch setup.
My goal is to use a late-model T-5 WC Borg Warner / Tremec for my transmission. The engine & trans swap has been done before by others, so this is not new. I am concerned about matching the right parts to this engine when it comes to the rest of the drive-train.
What is the correct set of parts I should buy for this in regards to clutch, flex-plate, bellhousing, and so forth?
Should I back out of this deal and find myself a later model 5.0 HO instead?
