Thanks for all the compliments. Come next April, I will have had the car 24 years. It started life as a 6 cyl. Powerglide car. This is one of 8 B body 67's I've owned. By far the neatest was a factory big block Bel Air wagon. I never should have gotten rid of that car. I love the Marina blue color, but the interior is being changed over to black. I've had far too many blue on blue cars. LOL

You got it now.

You also are the one who stated to use a MonteCarlo or Chevelle trans crossmember for the b-bodies to help with exhaust routing correct?


Correct. The crossmember I'm using is out of a 71 Monte Carlo. The humps for the exhaust are more toward the ends allowing you to run your pipes straight off the header collector instead of having to bend them in. That's how I'm able to run 3 1/2" straight off the collector.


 That is interesting. This is the first I have heard of that . How easy does it fit. My motor is moved back. Previous owner made a Trans crossmember . It is square tube. 

Straight across. He was going to drag race it so all it would of had is headers. 

But I need an exhaust system

I've done exhaust for years,and when running headers on 65-70 B Bodies the trans crossmember humps are so close together that the exhaust pipe to the header collector have to be bent quite a bit to get the tubes under the humps from the collector.A Monte Carlo or Chevelle cross member has the humps further apart to allow less angle to overcome getting the pipes from the collector to running parallel to the driveshaft.

The crossmember was a bolt in. I did have to add the second set of crossmember mounts on the frame since I'm running a T400, but the length and bolt holes were spot on. If I get a chance, I'll slide under it and get a picture.

Good catch. I forgot that picture showed the crossmember.

 

Oh, BTW. My dog's name is Harley. I got her from a rescue over 11 years ago. She goes with me to cruise-ins and car shows and loves it. She is friendly and has the sweetest disposition. She has never met a stranger. IMAG0114.jpg

Great looking Pup. I like the line "Never met a stranger". Very endearing.

As Carl would say..." Great Selfie".

 Thanks. I get some flack about the rusty headers and exhaust system, but this too will change with time and money.

I recently did the swap to the Chevelle/Monte cross member.
On my Trans already is a energey suspension Trans mount. With it installed the Trans touches the floor in a spot.

What mount did you use.

Thanks.

What trans are you running? Apparently the 700r4 hits the floor in a couple spots.

I have heard that there is clearance issues at the accumulator valve thingy on the side and cooler line fittings. There is some threads on chevy talk about this. A little "massaging" with a hammer makes room. I would go with a 4L80 type trans which is basically a t400 with o/d if I was doing a swap for o/d . 700r4 in stock form won't take much abuse. My friend cooked 3 of them behind a stock 350 with a mild cam in an S10 blazer. He went to a t350 and then started blowing up diff parts. It got worse when we stuffed a 454 into it. Mini spool fixed the spider gears blowing until he twisted the yoke off the pinion.lol. He was in process of building a narrowed truck 12 bolt when he abandoned the project. Motor ended up in my '69 chevelle. He sold the blazer body with the broken diff and later bout it back for way less than he sold it for and parted it out.
