Decoding/Numbers / Re: '68 327/275 exhaust manifold #s
« on: August 25, 2008, 01:03:14 PM »
Thanks again for the responses guys. Can someone look up 3834947 for me? I found a set from a '65 Chevelle and they have this number on the LH and the correct # I need 3840912 on the RH.

Again, not concerned about numbers, just correct function so the factory exhaust, heat shields, etc... will work. Thanks in advance, Brian

Thanks Tom!!  DARNIT!!  I just missed a set on ebay listed from a '65 Chevelle. According to your book they would have worked for me. They looked exactly right in the pictures, but the casting #s were not legilble. I was scared to bid on them because I wasn't sure they would work. Looks like they would have. 

Thanks again for the info. At least now I know these castings were used on more vehicles than just the 7 & 8 Camaros. Gives me a little more hope to find a set...   Thanks guys for the help, Brian

Thanks Ed, that's the info I was looking for. It's not an original engine car, I'm just dressing up a crate engine to look like a 327/275. So, I care about function and fit and not the numbers at all. I just wish there was some kind of readily available interchange manual or something similar I could look at to see what numbers will function correctly.

Again, thanks for the help. Brian

Thank you for the replies guys!! It seems to me 3840912 and the 3893608 SHOULD be interchangeable. I just hate to ebay a set, pay for shipping, and then have them be wrong.  I can't seem to find a set of these things, and it's starting to get frustrating...

Thanks again, Brian

I'm getting conflicting information from my research on the manifolds I need. I don't really care if I have the 100% correct # casting, I just want it to have the right measurements, etc... to work with my factory exhaust and alternator brackets. Car will not have A.I.R.

I think the LH # is: 3892679 but I've seen two different listings for the RH # 3893608 and 3840912. Can anyone confirm which numbers I need and the differences between the two #s I have for the RH?  Can I use either for the RH?

Thanks in advance, Brian

This isn't a great picture for what you are asking for, but it may help?


Restoration / Correct Power Steering Pump
« on: July 22, 2008, 02:59:06 AM »
Hey Folks,

I'm finally to the point where I'm assembling my engine, and I've come across an issue with my PS pump. I bought my pump and pulley from a reputable source online. I'm questioning whether I got the correct pump because of the position of the return line. It is the '68 327/275 setup.  All of the research I've done, and the picture in the A.I.M. says the return line should come out and point down. This makes sense to me because the return line runs down underneath the engine stand and goes up to the pump.

My source says this is the correct one, but I don't see how I'm getting my return line up to the 11:00 position this nipple is in?

My source says this is the correct pump, but has offered to send me another type if I find out it's not correct. Thanks in advance for any help or verification. Brian

Below is a link to a set on ebay right now that is supposed to be for a convertible. Maybe you can compare yours to these and see that's for sure what you've got. Believe me, I know there's a difference!! I bought a coupe set for my vert and had the same, "what the heck" issues trying to fit the coupe ones on my vert.

If the link doesn't work, the item #:  370036706053 Just pop onto ebay and type that # in the search box.

I still need a set of them for my '68 vert. How much you want for them?  As mentioned, coupe sets are on ebay pretty often, but the convertible sets don't pop up quite as often. Let me know. Thanks, Brian

Can anyone give me, or point me to where I can find some info about what damper the 327/275 L30 engine had on it? Part #, casting #, diameter, measurements, etc...??

I'm going to try to make my crate engine look like this set up, and I can't seem to find any info on what damper to use. I've searched here, Team Camaro, the web, my dealer, and can't get an answer. GM offers 12551537 damper which is the "clearance problem" damper for their crate engines. It's 6 3/4" diameter, about 2 3/8" "deep", of which about 1 1/8" is the snout. Has anyone used this damper with all the short pump L30 stuff? I'm scared it's going to mess up my pulley alignment.

Thanks in advance for any help, Brian

Originality / Re: '68 327/275 Air Cleaner Snorkel
« on: March 14, 2008, 05:42:01 PM »
I posted the same question over at Team Camaro and got it answered. The "smooth" snorkel was on manual transmission cars, and the ThermAC unit was mounted on the snorkel for automatics. All of the air cleaner photos I could find in the AIM showed the smooth snorkel. I finally found the ThermAC on a snorkel on page 345 of the '68 AIM. As always, thank you, Brian

Does anyone know if the L30 snorkel is supposed to be smooth, or have the "therm thing" on it? Through my searching this site and others, I've seen photos of original L30s with the therm unit on it. But, the AIM doesn't show one that I can find. I'm not doing a 100 point show car restoration, but would like to have the correct air cleaner if possible. Thanks in advance for any responses...Brian

Okay...thanks guys!! And Tom, thanks for looking that up for me. I'd love to get my hands on an interchange manual!!

He said I can just take it and try it once I get my engine together and my carb back. Then he said we can discuss price. I'll post and let you know. Thanks again!! Brian
