04-17-2011 08:38 PM 1930u Hemi/Chevy Distributor
Here's a shot of the Chevy distributor and the adapter sleeve. Out of all the conversion parts this one is by far the best. It's really a slick set up.

I still have a lot of adusting to do but I'm pretty happy with the set up so far. The engine and trans settled the suspension about and 1-1/2" up front and almost and inch in the back. The frame height is very uniform.

The trans and bell housing fit up well with the Hemi/Chevy adapter but I have a clearance problem with the trans adapter and the oil filter adapter.

I haven't posted for awhile but I have been staying busy. Here's the recent progress. I have had all sorts of fit and alignment problems. Mostly with the after market parts. Today I got the engine mounted up.

03-23-2011 09:47 PM 1930u- More measuring
Today I dropped the heads and rocker arms on without a gasket to check piston to valve clearance. All the books said there would be plenty of room with only a .500" lift and they were correct. The clay impression was well over .125". I used a sold lifter for the test.
