    I can’t answer your question but will comment on your engine choice. A poly is a pretty wide engine; IIRC wider than a 440. A 440 is a really tight fit in the narrow early A engine compartment; a poly might not fit!

      To put a later bell in a 65 Barracuda we had to trim the firewall to floor pan seam.

        I didn't have to trim my seam in my 64 Barracuda for a 71 340 belllhousing. Brewers has the conversion parts to run a 68 up bellhousing, flywheel and clutch in an early A.

        Yes call Brewers they will give you the details for what works, ie bell, fork bracket (pivot) , fork, Z bar. They have the knowledge and all big and small parts needed.
        If not mistaken the LA engine SB bell will bolt right to the poly. I also plan to use a 10/1/2 fly. I will do that in a 62 Dart (B body) if I ever get to La. for the trade for the engine.

        That’s fine I’m installing a complete 67 floor pan, some massaging will be needed, full 65 floor pans are non existent.
