I have a 4-link frame with a front 1977 Camaro front clip. I have a 1963 327 engine, Chevy block number 3782870. Will block huggers fit? I have already ordered some long headers, Chevy Small Block 1963-1982 V8 305 327 350 Race Exhaust Long Tube Headers from Amazon which did not fit.

I did a little more research on the front clip. According to pictures it is a 1976-79 F Frame, might be from a Z-28. A diagram is located at http://photobucket.com/gallery/user/Aus78For mula/m...

I thought I posted an answer to this the other day. Do you have this question on another forum? Anyway, any smallblock header meant to fit that subframe should work. The Camaro stayed basically the same from 1970-1981, but I don’t know if there were any changes in the subframe that would affect header fit. There are none that I know of.

That being said, I did get a set of Hooker headers for my ‘78 El Camino that hit the motor mount before even coming close to the head. But my Elky had been converted to a V8 and I don’t know if the right mounts were used. When I contacted Hooker about it, they said they should have fit, but suggested going up to their Supercomp Headers at a very large price increase. I wound up returning the Hooker Headers and bought a set of 3/4 length Heddman Hedders that fit perfectly.
