im using the same set up are you using the
headers from the kit also?
here are the important
measurement, from the center of the top shock bolt to the back
of the bracket its 13" and or from the upper control
arm forward bolt to the back of the bracket is 6.3/4,
i just went out and measured these for you i
measured off the driver side and my motor fits perfect and
clears everything, no iolpan mods needed, i run a 383 w/
t350 trans and a stock big cap dist [hei] if you need
any more info car is out side and ill give you any
info you need ....mark vega974@hotmail.com

sorry, i lost your email, yes i cut my drive
shaft becouse im using a 12 bolt with big ford bearing
ends and 5-5.5 bolt pattern [ axles out of a 3/4 ford
truck ]i built the rear for a dgag truck a few yrs ago
and it was the right width for the vega 49" backing
plate to backing plate, and i run a miloden pan i had
laying around 7qrt, i also upgraded to chevette rack
[man]so my steering is in the front of the k frame ,but
there was plenty of roomif my memory seves me right and
you should have no problem using a stock pan?if you
do run into problems let me know and ill find you a
pan something like mine or you can buy a new one for
80.00 a summit brand pan would work fine,email me again
with any question and ill reply the same day, where
are you located? ......mark ps i have complete
drawings some where for the complete install of a chevette
rack very simple install maybe 2hrs total time and
around 100.00 dollers total investment
