So what do you do with this case? Fix it? Is that doable?

On 69+ engines, the alternator would be in the way if they put it on the right side (like 67-68). So much harder to see in a fully dressed engine.

So if I understand the assembly plant process, workers on the engine dress line pulled the correct engine from racks of engines which had come from Flint/Tonawanda based on paper work for the next vehicle on the line. At that point they would need to see the engine code. Once they start the engine on the dress line, wouldn't it be locked in sequence to go into the correct car? So once the engine is fully dressed, there would not be a need to see an engine code because the engine was already locked in sequence. Sound reasonable?

302 in my Z runs great, but I am hearing a high pitched whistle while it runs. It is coming from the carburetor inlet; when I place my hand over the air horn, it disappears. Is this normal, or does someone have an idea what could be the cause? I have a brief video but it's 18.3 MB.

OK, makes sense now. I'm only familiar with small blocks, so it kinda looked like the heads in the pic I saw. Don't know if it's true, but somewhere I read/heard the 4 bolt big block was drilled and tapped differently to allow for dry sump oiling system?

So I'm curious. Why is the L78 different? Is it the heads?

Came across this ad for the first prototype Yenko Camaro? Anyone know the story with this car? Not on the list I have seen?
