Make sure your indicator is not running out of travel.
And is in contact with bore the whole 360 degrees.
Also make sure any parts of the magnetic base are
not rubbing on the bell housing.

I have a 67 6 banger with a born with 3:55 Posi..... Sweet!

Welcome to CRG Pat.
I'm a big fan of the inline six. Would love to see
some pics and some history of your 67 6 banger.

Build engine to 1969 Corvette L46 specs. 350 HP, cast iron intake and Q-jet carb.
Premium gas would be a must with 11 to 1 compression. L46 is also a/c friendly. 

Originality / Coil Spring Confused

I'm installing a big block in my 68rs. Not sure if I installed correct front springs. I've referenced the 69 chart.

I did the math just like the example. Came up with the same springs "HA".

But why does the 396 coupe listing start off with EY, YH because the lightest weight 396 is adding more than

133lbs?     I'm I missing something?

Awesome chart. Iím seeing YS springs as part of F41.
My 68 has speedo piercing for Saginaw transmission
So it could have come with Base 327 or L30?
The man I purchased car from did say he stripped
The 12 bolt rear end.

I replaced the front springs on my 68 rs today.
Installed HA. The code on the old springs is YS.
I couldnít find any info on them. Is this the
correct code for base 327 and manual transmission?
I believe this car was a base 327 and manual trans
from the factory. Thanks in advance.

I'm planning on driving my 69 SS this year. Santa dropped off a set of new
wheels and tires.

 Anyone have any thoughts or advice on building a 396
small block for it?

Thanks for the advice. The 68 currently has a six cylinder radiator and no shroud. So Iíll purchase both of those for big block. Wanting to start off with 350 engine first because Iíve got one thatís race ready.

One thing I've learned is rare doesn't equal desirable. I own a 69 ss with rare MC1 3 speed transmission that nobody is interested in.

Iím thinking about installing a 350 smallblock, th400 and 12 bolt rear end in my 68 rs for drag strip duty. Later on the smallblock probably will get changed over to a bigblock. My question is should I use bigblock motor mounts on a smallblock with a th400 crossmember and th400 driveshaft? So when I change over to bigblock nothing has to change, except engine?
