Ive considered a '69 350. When I was asking around about it everyone said it should bolt right in. I don't think that you would have any clearance issues.

I hear ya on that one. I should mention that my car is an automatic so I can't really speak on your 4 speed. You already have the motor so I would say just lower it in and find out. Good luck

Intake should fit. Timing cover might i THINK but i'm not sure. Seems to me there might have been two styles and it had something to do with the balancer.

Here's a link to a post that should help with the timing cover. http://www.78ta.com/HTAF/index.php?topic=40270.0
