I've got an lt1 and i'm trying to see if i can change it over to a carburetor, is there a place to put a distributor. Can it be done? If not can I put those heads on a 91 350 one piece rear main seal block.
You can get a carburetor intake for the LT1 and stick a Distributor in it... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/NAL-24502592/ Under the LT1 intake is a stub shaft running off the cam that drives the oil pump... You can also remove the optispark unit and plug the hole in the timing chain cover... While you're there they also make a nice electric water pump conversion for it to eliminate the cam driven pump... http://www.summitracing.com/search/Part-Type/Water-Pumps-Electrical/?keyword=lt1+water+pump
I re-drilled the bolt holes in an old Edelbrock intake and made it fit (not something you would want to see at a show though, it's ugly)
To use LT1 heads on a regular smallblock requires a lot of welding and machine work..
This is an L99 (265ci Baby LT1) with a carb and distributor...
I ordered my manifold and carb today. I was wandering about my radiator can I use the stock on that is in my Monte Carlo. Will it work with the reverse flow LT1. Any one have tips about this transition.
