SOHC in a Fairlane.
My buddy has a '66 Fairlane, currently with an all-aluminum FE motor (see the latest Hemmings Muscle Machine). He's presently working on putting a 427 SOHC motor in it & has most everything for the build-up. He's notched the shock towers back about 2-3ins. but we're still concerned the Cammer won't fit. He's thinking a Heidt's front-end kit is the best route. My concern is eliminating the shock towers/fender panels will produce too much flex in the front-end. My idea is to use snout bars thereby triangulating the front sheetmetal & stiffening the front sub-frame.
Anyone have any ideas, thoughts, pictures of a '66 Fairlane that still ahs its shock towers & can tell me how much space there is between the head/valvecovers of a Cammer & the tower?
