Maintenance / Re: Is this a Packard 56 series terminal?
« on: June 02, 2017, 03:05:05 AM »
Thanks fo the help guys.  The terminal did break off a 2 year old American Autowire Factory Fit harness.  I called them, and was able to purchase a couple and repaired the glove box wire. Good as new. Thanks for all the help...

This was on the glove box light wire and I am looking to replace it.  Anyone know the type of terminal this is?  Thanks

My car: '67 L48 350 with K24 & K19

I Just installed this crankcase vent tube:

And after dropping in the distributor, I noticed there is now limited rotation of the distributor.  Will this cause a problem when trying to time the motor?

I ask because I was using the test light method to set static timing mentioned in one of David Vizard's book but couldn't get the light to go off due to the lack of distributor rotation.  I have about 4" of rotation before the distributor hits either the vent tube or intake manifold.

Also, when the nut is installed on this bolt:

it's pretty tight and a distributor wrench doesn't get much travel when tightening or loosening the distributor hold down bolt.  Is this normal as well?

Any one able to tell what this crankcase vent tube is from (makes/models/years)? 

I'm assuming a car with K19 A.I.R. Since it has the diverter valve bracket. 

Measures 15" long. 



Awe man, and I thought I almost had it down!  Thanks so much for the insight.

Ok guys, my car is í67 RS/SS 4 barrel quadrajet L48 California car with K19 & K24 and originally a Powerglide (if that matters).  My PCV is threaded into the oil fill tube with a non vented cap and I have no holes in the chrome script valve covers.  Iíve done some research but still have a few questions. 

Can some confirm for me before I make a purchase with Paragon Corvette, that with the closed PCV system I would need the block adapter tube shown on K24 A2 of the AIM p/n 3881848?  If so, is this the one I need:

Also, in the AIM, K19 A10 shows an air cleaner p/n: 6424487 with two tubes in the base (which is the one I have) but K24 A2 shows an air cleaner with a p/n of 6424486.  This air cleaner has filter in the side wall of air cleaner base.  Which one would be correct or how do I know which one I would need?

Lastly, K24 A2 shows two bungs on the oil fill tube going to two different places on the carb.  Is that just to show the two different set ups?

The white Camaro in the photo with the TYK 000 license has been owned by me since 1970. The car is a true SS 350 Camaro with White Paint code CC. The car was a suspension development car for Guldstrand Egineering that was owned by Gary Wheeler at the time. The car was supposedly one of the first SS 350 sold by Clippinger Chevrolet in Covina. Jon Mello is aware of the car and its history.

Wow, your license plate is the closest to my 01C car I've seen yet! Cool

Got it. Thanks

Thanks for the help fellas.

Will a soaking in a carb dip remove that gasket/epoxy crud?

I have to send out the bowl to have the fuel inlet heli-coiled because they are a bit worn,  but before I do, I don't want to get my hopes up.  From these pictures, Is anything not repairable/reusable within the float bowl itself?

This is what's on the back of my oil gauge.

Thanks for the help guys. Until I can get my hands on the K19/K24 parts I'm going to use the valve cover for ventilation...

Pull the vent from the Oil fill tube fitting to a PCV valve then to a vacuum source at the base of the carb. Doesn't matter where you pull the vent from as long as the crankcase is vented either positively or to atmosphere.

Thanks.  What about the breather side? 

Maintenance / Any other options for crankcase ventilation?

I have my original oil fill tube with PCV connection and wanted to try to use that and use my original chrome script valve covers (no baffles or holes for PCV/breather).  I also have the old air cleaner with two tubes in the base.

I do not have the ventilator can in the block under the intake manifold or the connection at the back of the block.  There is a freeze plug back there now.   

Question is, am I limited to using aftermarket valve covers, which I have already, with a PCV (driver side) and breather (passenger side) until I get the ventilator and connector set up correctly or is there another way to ventilate the engine using my original parts?  Thanks!
