Hey moneymaker, I was wondering if you could do me a favor?
I need the measurements for the drivers side mount, the part that is in a C or V shape, As you know mine has bent in and I am in need of a new one, I just need to know how big the opening is at the end, from inside to inside. It would help out a lot! thanks!

Did you happen to get it yet? I need to rip the bent one out today before I go back to school. Then I have to build one in school and the only free day i have is Monday, because we get a month off for x-mas. thanks

ok thanks! They look to be home made already once! So I guess I really did need that measurement Oh and one more thing.... About that 270H Cam, I guess the engine builder told my dad that "the valve train can't handle anything with that much lift. But it already has .440 while the 270H has I think .501. Which makes no sense because I thought a stock 289 could handle around .500, and I have updated heads.? He also told me because its hydraulic its not going to change the sound.

He is wrong on the sound. Just ask Sam or anyone of the hundred or so other members who have a 270H. If you have at least 90# of seat pressure and the installed height of the valve springs has enough clearance then the cam will work GREAT!
