Almost all of the "pieces" of a quarter panel that are on the market are much worse than full quarters.

I know that's not what you want to hear.

There is no difference between a 265 and a 283 crank in this area. For that matter, a 327 crank or other SBC displacements. They are all the same in the crankshaft snout area.

You only have 12.5" of room for the tire cross section + clearance on each side with a stock wheel well. So, 12.5" - 11" leaves 1.5" for clearance - that's only .75" per side if you're lucky enough...

The SBC/BBC mounts can be either stock or 3/4" forward by swapping pieces from the driver side to the passenger side. I don't think you can do this with the LS mounts. But both have a small...

A diaphragm pressure plate including Hays should not have excess pedal pressure. This is not an inherent Hays issue, it's a quality problem with the parts you have or there is something else wrong.

I've never had one come loose, even on an 8000+ rpm engine. Just don't tap too deep with the tapered threads.

But if it's a street engine, just don't do it at all.

Just about anyone's heavy duty diaphragm pressure plate should do the job. I am assuming you had a Borg & Beck style pressure plate if the pedal force was high. Otherwise you have a linkage...

I would never run a plugged bypass on the street. I have run one in a drag race engine where the engine is warmed up in a controlled manner.

A bushing with an i.d. same as the tap's major diameter would go a long way to keeping the tap straight. There may be such a bushing in the first ebay link, hard to tell but probably.

However the correct balancer puller will pull a steering wheel, even though it's overkill and clumsy.

Rack and pinion almost always has more hidden issues than using a power steering box. Biggest one is routing the steering shaft past the exhaust.

There's plenty of Chevys with fans that are suitable for a trifive swap. I put a gen4 Camaro fan setup on mine. Corvettes have good fans too. I'm sure they are all around 3000 cfm.
