I have a 69 Z/28 with a 327 out of a 67 camaro, and am having trouble closing the hood. Thanks to your great web site, I learned that Z28's have special motor mounts that I installed recently. I have the cowl induction hood and cowl air cleaner set up like original, but the hood has never closed correctly, even after installing the correct motor mounts. The motor actually sets up a little higher with new mounts. I would say that the engine is now about an inch too high. Any ideas why the hood won't close correctly?
Are you sure you have the correct frame mounts?http://www.camaros.org/engine.shtml#EngineMounting
