There is a @ 1 1/2" between the air cleaner and the hood.What would the clearance height be from touching the hood to the block?
Looks great! What are you running on the inside? Performance?
No, not using a spacer.Hey cobra, is that with a carb spacer? Reason is, I have a 429 with a holley 750 but looking to get a 1 inch or 1/2 inch carb spacer and run a 10" raised base air cleaner to avoid my HEI dizzy. If your dimensions are with a 1 inch carb spacer I can probably drop mine down to a 1/2 inch spacer which would clear the 2.75 inch overall air cleaner height.
This is an awesome thread. I'm sure you're answering a lot of people's questions about hood clearance.
No it did not fit on my 71 with std air cleaner.Will a 460 with a Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake, Holley 770 Carb and standard Aircleaner fit under a stock NACA hood??
I purchased a Scat forged rotating assembly that came with Pistons, rods, and crank, and im running a Comp Cams roller retrofit fit system with roller lifters & rockers on beehive springs and Comp push rods and timing set.Iduke what parts are you running on the inside?
