Maintenance / Re: Sleeve in 69 4bolt CE Block
« on: June 04, 2021, 01:11:55 AM »
i bought the long block with the sleeve job already done. Don't have info as to why sleeve was inserted.  i took possession with motor apart but apparently it  was a  running motor when water was left in and frost plug blew out when water froze. This is story that i was told. New plugs inserted but motor never reassembled because car was sold. Last block i did with a sleeve had the step (over 30 yrs ago). This must of been a very old job to have no step, surprised to see the welding, don't know if that was common back then to weld the sleeve to the block? Wondering if anyone out there has put a thicker sleeve with a  thin step?

Here is my former L-78 RS / SS that Jerry M. thought had a fair amount of options. custom interior, bumper guards, console gagues, 7 k  tach. tilt wheel, power steering.
comparing to your RS L78, mine is a plain janer which most L78's were

Most likely the firebird. Strange, Camaro on its 3 spd shifters did not use the hurst Slip-in "bayonet" style round handle (stamped 5325) . i also purchased a 3 spd bayonet style shifter with hurst round bar , thought it was cool and different.

Your car I would say is well optioned over highly optioned.
thanks for replies, if my car had a deluxe interior would feel more 'well optioned'. Original owner told me salesmen threw into the deal the rear defogger, to bad it wasn't the deluxe interior or swap out AM/FM for RS package.

11
these terms are used all the time, what options and/or quantity of options makes a car well/highly optioned?
would my Canadian SS with L78, M20, 410 ,AM/FM and rear defogger be considered well optioned or highly optioned or low optioned?

i would think a 7.75 X 14 tire would be on a 6" rim and not on a 5"   "HI" rim.
