Restoration / Temperature Gauge Increments
« on: June 29, 2023, 09:30:12 PM »
Can someone on here call out the increments on the temperature gauge. Is in console on the floor. Is the 1st mark 180 and so on after that. Newly restiored L78 engine. Live in the Deep South and it is hot here today heat index about 104. Couple days ago run it about 85 miles round trip to visit a new Camaro buddy with a numbers match COPO. Car ran consistently between 1st mark and 2nd mark on temp gauge. Puzzling though is it is losing fluids and canít find it, On return trip after putting more 50/50 fluid in it, ran straight on the second mark, and needle flicked over the 2nd mark a few times before settling back on the 2nd mark. New 4-core radiator, 7 blade flex fan. Iím stumped on problem and fix. Guess I should have put this on garage talk, but I know got to be a restorer on here that May have had this problem before and can shed a little info. Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Factory Chambered Exhaust-69í 396
« on: April 21, 2023, 02:30:53 PM »
Iím in a little dilemma right now, I need help on determining the size on the exhaust from the factory for 396 Camaroís. Purchased a Chambered Stainless Steel set back in 2019í from 1 of Vendors, to be stocked for install at conclusion of its restoration. Here I am, ready to install, and my installer just ask me if I was sure I wanted this 2Ē  behind my mildly built L78, factory specíd! Is all Big Block systemís at least 2.25 inches or 2.50 inches, is I guess my question? Only have owned car for 51 years, and very slight memory of Day 2íd removal of complete exhaust, and slight memory of all the dimples in the system. May be also could be dreaming of long ago. Thanks in advance for the help.
