won`t work w/ raised port victors or victor knock offs, in a 68 barracuda. a little over 1/2" head to firewall clearance, w/ the taller head actually covering part of the hole. u can go to a hotrod heater under the dash tho, for defrosters and a little heat.

I looked into that I could not fit it in the heater box, they do have some "pancake motors" also for really tight clearances. My valve covers are cast and pretty high and that mod worked for me.

I went ahead and ordered the motor referenced in this thread. My questions is on the wiring, since it is running from the back of the motor instead of the front like stock, did you run an extra hole through your firewall? Also ,the shaft diameter is a little smaller than stock, at least on the one I got.

Think the cage fit just right on the shaft. No idea new supplier and it is metric?

Its ok. It all worked out. I posted some pictures in my build thread. I just ran the wires through the firewall and put a small spacer in the cage.

Check the rotation you might have to switch the wires around if it goes in reverse. Think I did Craig.

I just picked up on your blower motor fix. It looks exactly what I need for my Big Block (no room for the blower motor issue). Can you tell me where I can get this shorter motor. Thanks in advance Ron D
