WOW! Great information!
What was the reasoning for building 3 different engines with the same block?
Just to have options or were the other reasons?

What is changed to effect HP on the 396 Cu engine?  Cam, Carb, Lifters?
Just curious or is it something else?

What advantage do you see with newer coil and points set up? Any performance enhancement? I have 396 with original points and coil.

Mild Modifications / Fuel smell after driving with no visible leak.

Where would I look to see why my garage smells like gas after parking in my garage after a cruise?
Should I have the carburetor rebuilt? There is no visible leak by carb or intake.

Looking to find a passenger side square after market mirror to match the remote drivers side mirror on my 69 Camaro. Anyone ever see one? I purchased a pair of round ones and may just replace both and disable remote control on drive side door. Any Ideas appreciated. Was it an option in 69?

Thanks everyone! I think I will try and do both as I am coming from Florida and hope to do a road trip through the battle grounds and historical sites. You have been a great help.

I thought I saw one online - not sure where I got that from.

How do you get to the instrament panel light bulbs? Do you have to remove dash pad or the whole instrament cluster?

General Discussion / Head lights shut off on high beams
« on: July 11, 2020, 10:01:33 AM »
I have a problem with my 1969 Z11 BB head lights going off when I press the button on the floor. I have tried replacing the button to no avail. I checked all connections from button to the back of the head lights, the only thing I can't check is the high beam indecator in the dash. How would you get to it.

After driving my 1969 Z11 BB I get a strong fuel smell in my garage with no visible fuel leak. Is that a sign of just evaporation or is the float or needle valve malfunctioning?

It says all Models from 1969 on
cut to 3/4 inches

Instructions say to cut off contactor at 3/4" does that include the cap or spring end or just the 1" end.
Looks like                 Spring I--------       1"      would make a 1/16" difference.
Hope this makes sense.
