My BB project is now starting to progress. The big block tested clean. However, the motor which I bought about 3 years ago had been sitting for 20+ years. Therefore, the bad news some moisture pitting. But the good news the good old steel crank 1U A is being turned down to 50 x 10 to the 3rd power; which leaves me with one more correction over the years until it becomes extinct. The block is being turned up from 30 to 60 x 10 to 3rd power which also is with in spec I believe. The pistons are coming out of New Jersey. I understand from the speed shop we can achieve 10.5:1 compression with the RPM heads and intake.
Now the question. The transmission in the 67 is a RUG E2 (68 4 speed for 289 or 302) with a hurst shifter. How will it stand up to the HP of the big block 428? Actually there are three questions. The second being what bell housing is required to put the BB to that tranny I am assuming the present bell housing will not work is that correct. Thirdly I saw a bell housing site one of the VMF'ers had prepared some time ago but can not find it now (and I was not bright enough to bookmark it at that point.)
thanking all in advance for your feedback. P.S the bb is going in here ...(the 67)

p.s. Is there a site which clearly docements replacing a 289 with a 428? ::
