Gene, I can't believe nobody's said this yet but- get rid of that 27! By all accounts they are notoriously flimsy and are marginally acceptable behind a 6 cylinder, let alone a V8, let alone a hopped-up Chevy V8. You will likely end up with a broken axle and wheel parting company, wiping out your rear fender at best, or causing a crash at worst! Add in those big tires and I would never bet 2 cents on that setup Make the extra effort to get a Dana 44 to go in there, and get the flanged axle conversion from Fairborn Studebaker; or, there are some non-Stude rears that will fit with some work. But 44s are still pretty common and reasonably priced, and Phil's axle kit makes them near bulletproof.

Welcome, good luck with your car, and, from one Lark lover to another, [b]change that rear end!![^]
