Default '55 Nomad L79 327

Just buttoning up the Nomad's L79 327, should have it ready to put back in this weekend. Started out as a quick valve spring replacement, but evolved into a full blown engine, trans, posi rear, brakes and suspension overhaul.

Sweet looking engine....Good luck on firing it up

Those tall valve covers look like they may be hiding something....Got some particulars on the engine build?

Great buildup,looks great too. The only thing i see where there might be a clearance problem would be the water pump lower rad. hose might rub against the fuel pump outlet line to the carb. I hope you run across that but on my 350 with the same type fuel and water pump i ended up removing the f.p. outlet fitting and going with an AN-6 and braided hose to finally gain clearance. Good luck on the install.

Sweet looking engine. You cant beat the look of an old school engine in a trifive in my opinion.

Thank you, I have to admit I still like 'em with the old styling I grew up with.

Everything is set to drop the engine and trans in. Has been a lot of work, but well worth the effort.
