Good news. Wish I could find my original engine.

I just  looked again, there are TWO BB '67 pacers. The one I was asking about is $125,000. I think that's the one Firstgen is referring to? The stamp is crooked too.

Looks like it was welded with a nickle rod. I don't like the porosity, it could leak oil under pressure.

Is the '67 pacer on ebay right now real?

Thanks for your effort,  Brian. It's a shame you can't get pictures.

So let's hear about the Mountain Green BB on the homepage. Looks just like mine is supposed to look.  And even about '68 Z. And I wish I would have found the '69, it great the way it is.

Mild Modifications / Re: Radiator for vintage air? Stock or aluminum?

I agree.

My radiator guy says aluminum radiators are junk, tubes are too big. I would use a three row brass and copper to keep him happy.

I agree, a new white top would really set off the black. And love the red interior.

Mike S, or someone else,  Can you tell me the length of the dip stick on a 325hp? I bought a new one , maybe 10 years ago, and now trying to use it it seems to long. Mine is 24 1/4 from the seal to the tip. It does have a part number on it, last four numbers are 1088.

Thanks, I remember that thread. I have seen the black top open filter like Mike S shows. The  closed element car I remember as being yellow and was in the building where they were judging survivors, this would have been before the Camaro show moved to Maryland. The closed filter was not very good looking as I remember. Anyway, I guess my car should have chrome covers and a black lid open filter by the date. Thanks for all the help. More pictures may help more. I realize the 325's don't get the press that 375's do.

I THOUGHT they all had chrome covers but was hoping. I don't like them and may not use them even though I have a pair that seem correct. I saw a 325 at Carlisle years ago with a closed element black air cleaner, never saw another. My car was changed to a SBC with the forth owner in around '74. I have asked all the owners I know but no one has pictures of it  and we are ALL old and have CRS.

Gee Brent, you are reading my mind. I finally started working on mine and have a lot of confused thoughts. Did all 396's in '67 have chrome valve covers?? I found the dip stick tube is black last night which solved one mystery. Been gathering parts to put the BB back in mine for about 10 years. Where did I put the water pump and carb?  They are both rebuilt, ready to install and I can't find them.

Thank you. With the mentality of the day that makes perfect sense.

I have no experience with these systems. What is the purpose of the shield behind second carb?  Welcome and thanks for sharing.
