Maintenance / Hot resistance wire
« on: September 11, 2017, 10:46:37 PM »
So tuning up car after new points etc and engine died. Was doing other things and forgot to turn key off for maybe 5 minutes when I noticed wiring harness melting... Damn I said! The resistance wire was super hot? I know what it's supposed to do but wouldn't think it would get that hot no matter how long key left on. Any thoughts?

Maintenance / Brake pedal return spring
« on: July 12, 2017, 12:40:54 AM »
So I've been trying to track down some front brake lock up issues. Thought I'd fixed after replacing the master cylinder couple months ago....but problem returned. Anyway pulled front seat to get a good look at the brake pedal assembly to insure no preload issues starting with the pedal assembly (note this was front disc brake conversion) and noted a spring hanging down from the pedal assembly. UPC 5 A3 page 77 shows this spring. So 2 questions. First is the spring required with power discs.? ..pedal seems to return just fine, and Second is the extension I see in the drawing a different part or part of the pedal arm? I don't have anything to attached the spring to if I wanted to.

Thanks in advance,

Maintenance / Torque convertor cavitation?
« on: April 20, 2017, 01:29:57 PM »
 Been trying to ID a cavitation type sound for several weeks, actually going back to last fall. Sounds like coming from torque converter, but only for a few seconds on start-up. No operational problems and level appears to be good. I do have a small leak at the radiator connection (maybe a drop or two over night), but again I checked level and was not even close to the "add pt" mark. Thoughts, experience?  PG transmission in an L48.

Maintenance / Hot start, electrical issues.
« on: September 25, 2016, 12:00:45 AM »
1967 RS/SS, all of a sudden having stating issues when hot. Turn the key and nothing, absolutely nothing, no noises, smells, etc... Turn the key a few times and get ignition. Funny cause I had similar problems about 40 years ago with my first camaro and never figured it out. Where to start? Neutral safety switch, ignition switch, a relay, battery ground to firewall?

Maintenance / Q jet inlet fitting leak
« on: August 22, 2016, 01:37:09 AM »
I continually have  leaks around the fuel inlet fitting. Carb has been rebuilt. Threads are good and using a new 5/16 x 7/8 fitting. Carb runs great but can't seem to keep it from leaking. Any tricks?Question....

Was a 5/16 fuel line standard on early 67 L48. w Qjet by Carter? Non OEM fuel pump has a 3/8 outlet With an reducer. Just curious if issue originates at the fuel pump.

Restoration / Pinion yolk 10 bolt vs 12 bolt
« on: May 21, 2016, 09:59:55 PM »
Ok, finally installing OEM  (PI 1205G) 12 bolt with single hole radius rod bracket in my L48. The original has been missing since car was purchased in 1984, a 10 bolt had been install in in its place. Just noticed the pinion yolk U bolt holes are fractionally farther apart on the 12 vs. the 10. I'd rather get some real advice via this forum vs asking parts supply house on how to mitigate this problem. The 12 yolk also looks a little longer. My first intuition is the 12 bolt yoke is not original, so keeping that in mind, should a OEM 12 bolt, be a direct bolt up to a 10 bolt universal and drive shaft?

Thanks in advance,

Restoration / Rear End Replacement
« on: March 09, 2016, 01:59:59 AM »
Finally found original early 67 12 bolt with radius rod bracket for L48 car. Going to replace the 10 bolt that was under the car when I purchased it. Question is there any differences in the yolk or drive shaft I should be aware of or is this a direct bolt up I think it is.

General Discussion / 12 bolt spring perch welds
« on: July 05, 2015, 12:55:35 PM »
 Finally found the shell of a 67 12 bolt with radius rod bracket. Noted the welds around the spring perches are "beefed up" relative to what I would say was an original weld. How common was it to do this...or am i looking at a repair job?

Maintenance / L48 Gear ratio w/ P-Glide
« on: July 04, 2015, 06:59:52 PM »
What was the most common ratio provided in an 295/350 with a 2 speed powerglide? Finally found the "shell" of a correct rear end  with radius rod bracket and panning rebuild. Based on exisitng code it was originally a 356, but somewhere along the line I heard a 331 was most common? Any data to support?


Originality / 1967 l48 original flex plate size
« on: April 18, 2014, 01:51:35 AM »
I would like to know what the original flex plate size for 1967 l48. I have not been able to find a a cover that fits over a 163 tooth on a small block 350, so makes me wonder if flex plate is correct.

Restoration / 1967 L48 Flywheel/flexplate size
« on: November 02, 2013, 01:24:35 AM »
Bought an original/virgin 1967 L48 engine. It has a 163 tooth flywheel. Was this the original size and if so where do you find a torque convertor cover that fits over top?

Restoration / 1967 SS 350 Air Cleaner
« on: February 24, 2013, 02:52:24 AM »
Can anyone confirm the diameter of the SS350 air cleaner. Infomration on CRG indicates it is 15.45 dia. All afftermarket air cleaners are 16" or larger and do not clear the coil. Any thoughts?

Originality / 1967 RSSS M35, 10 ro 12 bolt?
« on: February 24, 2013, 02:29:09 AM »
I have a nearly orignal 67 RSSS Conv with a powerglide and 10 bolt rear end. I always thought the original 12 bolt was MIA until I came across some info in Hemmings which indicated that a 67 350 SS with a powerglide only came with a 10 bolt. Can anyone verify this for me?
