Any other owners of a survivor 1968 SS 350 motor that could provide some pictures of the motor and engine bay? Thanks

Is there something that shows the item is eligible? I am watching a few used items and added one to a cart as a test but didn't see anything that mentioned it was eligible and it still showed the current price.


You have to put in the discount code at the checkout: PRIMOSALE

I just purchased this block so I could build a period correct 350 for my car. But if the owner of the car comes calling I'll let them buy it for what I paid. Thanks

I'd sure love to spend a day just going over a survivor car like this, documenting and seeing what "just off the lot" looked like. Enjoy!

Just ordered a date correct Holley carb for my car, saved $100. Nice and thanks for the heads up.

I'm looking for any quality images of a 350 CID from a 1968 Camaro (preferably manual). I've searched the forum and net, haven't found much. My set up has a power brake booster, power steering. If anyone had some can you post them here? Thanks for any help.

In my searching for answers online, I came across these pics. It's for a Chevelle, but it shows spacers as well. I can see they are different sizes of spacers in the pic. In the 68 AIM it calls out different part numbers for each spacer (one side being the same part number). I'm just assuming, but we know what assume gets ya, that it then is referencing different sized spacers per part number. I also noted the material they are made from, so that's why I had asked that question as well since the ones in the pics looked like aluminum. Just interesting tid-bit I found in my research, and didn't find this topic addressed in any forums that I could find. Sorry I can't credit the pics, I can't remember how I came across them.

Yeah, I saw that in the 67 AIM as well. I was thinking the main reason was to stop from crushing the speaker cover with the screw by over tightening. I'll just fashion some based on the previous post and move on to the next mystery with my car. Thank again.

On a side note, does anyone have a template or measurements on where the kick panel speakers are set in the kick panels? I'm going to try and work on this over the weekend to add a little sound to my car now that I've got all the pieces I need. Or is there really only one place they can go with the hollowed out portion. Thanks for any help.

Originality / Re: 1968 z/28 water pump pulley reinforcement plate?
« on: May 29, 2018, 06:10:29 PM »
Just adding to this topic as I'm researching the same thing. I followed the info. in previous posts, and as far as I can tell from reading through the AIM for 68 it looks like the reinforcement plate is noted for clutch fans (K05 sheet A1). But for the regular 4 bladed fan, which is what I'm using for my 350 ci, 295 hp motor, it doesn't look like the plate is called for (6 sheet A7). Can anyone verify that one way or the other if regular V8 motors used that plate as well?
Looking at the 67 AIM (6 sheet A4) it calls for the reinforcement plate for the V8, but I don't see it for 68. Thanks for any input.

Sorry if I wasn't supposed to revive an old thread, just thought since it was the relevant topic keeping one search string would be good. Thanks

Just an update, tapped out the holes on the flange on the water pump and worked like a charm. Bolts pass through without a hitch and stick out the back side about a 1/4". Thanks for the info and help guys.

Thanks so much for the info. That's the direction I'll go then and probably post back the dimensions I come up with on each spacer once I make them, just for future reference if someone else has this question. Thankyou again.

I'm going to install some kick panel speakers this weekend, using an aftermarket replica stereo, in my 68. I've sourced some 4x6 speakers that will fit behind the original style speaker covers and the hardware I'll need. When looking at the 68 AIM it also shows spacers being used (I assume to help with vibration of the speaker and so as to not crush in the speaker cover with the screws) but I haven't been able to find them, or even a picture of them, to know what the material was, what they looked like, widths and depths, etc.
I've found part #'s in the 67 and 68 AIM of 3899809, 3899810 and 3899811 so I assume they are different widths on the spacers. But those part #'s don't show up on any searches I've done. Has anyone ran into this before, found a good solution or material to substitute, etc? I've searched multiple forums and google, nada. Any help or direction is much appreciated.
Everyone have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend. Thanks

Ed, thanks for the updated info on the bolt numbers and size. I had gotten a set on ebay that measured 2.5" as they came from another spacer that was just a 1/16" difference than the one I have. They just went to the last thread on the flange and stopped, like I'd have had to wrench hard to push them past the back of the flange.

Pete, yeah the bolts hit the last thread on the flange and won't turn past it to stick out a bit in the back. If that is how they are supposed to be then the bolts I have should be fine that I purchased and I've got a problem then with the flange that I'll have to fix, probably retap, so the little extra bit of bolt protrudes through the back side of the flange. Just didn't want to go that far if I was missing something else.

Thanks guys, great help. Hope this solves it for someone else down the road. Cruise on!

General Discussion / Fan spacer 3857041

I've searched through the forum and wasn't able to find any posts regarding this issue. I am trying to put back together correctly a 1968 350 for my car. I have gotten the spacer 3857041 and the correct 4 blade fan, along with the correct water pump and pulleys. My challenge is finding the right length OEM set of 4 bolts to hold this all together. I purchased a set on ebay and they seem to be about a 1/4" too long (they were our of a fan spacer 3927794). Both are pretty close to the same length according to the research report on CRG, but they won't work. They bottom out at the end of the threads on the water pump.
My question is, what length of bolt should I be looking for? I couldn't narrow it down by looking at the AIM for bolt 9425299 (couldn't find any size info) or is there a problem with my mount on the water pump that the end of the bolts aren't passing through to stick out a slight bit on the back side?

Thanks for any help. I posted the subject line as is so maybe easy to come up in a search later on for someone else. Shane
