I'm jealous - wish I had any 427, much less a side oiler of '63/'67
vintage.

Hi all..

I guess I should have been more specific. I have a good idea what
I'll need for hardware, but what I really need is to know block mods,
clearancing, etc. that will need to be made, so I can make sure my
machinist is aware of them. Also, if the mods are made, are they
reversible or compatible with a flat-tappet cam?

I haven't picked a grinder yet, but have heard good things about
Ultradyne and custom cams... I'll keep the list posted once I figure
some more out.
