I am in the finishing stages of doing a frame off on my 57 Nomad. I put in a ZZ4 crate motor which came with HEI and long water pump. I bought Danchuk side mounts that keep the engine in the stock location. I am using a Bow Tie built 700R4. My HEI fits with about half an inch clearance. I can remove the HEI with out having to remove the cap. I have a Griffith aluminum radiator in the V8 position using a short water pump. I am using a Flexolite 7 blade fan about 3/4 inch from the radiator. I am having trouble finding headers that will work with angle plugs and clearing the 605 power steering
