Btw, my new engine will be 427 inches.  I'll not be using any of the 360 parts on / in it. Plan is to keep the 360 as a backup all ready to go.

personally and from my view point.......your current 360 runs damn good and isnt lacking for tq. now there was a learning curve with head gaskets and cams but damn good. i know, the 427 will run even better, not that it needs to .....ya i said it LMAO

Head gaskets were an issue on the 434 sbc due to poor cam choice .




. No issues with the 360 other than a seepage into #3. Pretty sure I know why but will wait to freshen up to know for sure.

Looking very good Mr.N!  Only suggestion I have is the small brace tube above top shock mount in the first pic.  I would have run it to the intersection of the B and C pillar. Much more in line with the load path.

fabr is good! That is my cable shifter hung up out of the way. I experimented with the upper mount support tube angle. With that position being full droop, there is no force on it. With the shock at full bump, when under the heaviest load, it is nearly a straight shot. There are quite a few more braces planned for the entire back end.
