        Auto.
        Could the conversion allow either 904 or 727 to be fitted ? If so , would floor need to be touched if fitting 727?

        no 904 will bolt up to a BB motor, you will need a BB 727 transmission

        Schumacher engine mounts
        Big Block 727 transmission
        correct radiator the inlets/outlets will probably be on different sides for the big block

            No need to touch the floor or seam for a big block 727. Certain exhaust systems might fit better with the seam hammered flat.
