Originality / Original L79 valve covers
« on: May 29, 2018, 12:29:55 PM »
I'd appreciate a couple of photos if someone could post 'em.  I have 2  sets  and they are both original, but one set is heavier than the other.  Both of them have the oblong 0 lying down on the lower part of the valve covers.  One set has slight  pushrod rubbing marks on the inside..  Maybe I should've used a thicker set of valve cover gaskets.  What years and what engines did these beasts come on.??
Thanks for your response(s) in advance.

Decoding/Numbers / 5 numbered Rochester carburetors
« on: March 01, 2018, 02:07:07 PM »
Have  29202  +  29251  Rochester 1969  carburetors ..  Notice the "70" is missing from the units.    Anyone explain what engines / car models
these units are from, and why the 5 numerics instead of the common "70" numbered carbs. The Julian dates are;   098 9   and  114 9  respectively?
Thanks!

Originality / 1963 Corvette 327 c.i. Water Pump that needs . . .
« on: November 06, 2016, 03:20:58 PM »
a wee bit of cleaning.  Is it okay to sandblast the pump without destroying its originality?   
'63 Vette water pump p/n 3782609 with raised code GM 3 on the reverse of the water pump.  The beastie is valuable and therefore stands the question.

Thanks in advance Gentlemen!!

Originality / Camaro driveshaft identification and . . .
« on: November 06, 2016, 03:09:33 PM »
How do I go about identifying a First Gennie Camaro or Firebird driveshaft?  Are there codes somewhere on the shaft?  Is the driveshaft length different to Second Generation Camaros?  Any differences between  P'Glide / T350 / T400 or standard trans shafts?
The stripes are there but unfortunately, have long been painted over and have lost their lustre.

When did GM stop using the spring-loaded 'hard on the ole eyes' retaining clips on their U-joints?  Seems like a load of questions, and, you are right, but,
this is  the correct no-nonsense place!!

Thanks Gentlemen!!

Were these at one time or another considered a decent header and, why did Cragar branch out into the exhaust business?

Not promoting this site except for the fact it might, just might bring back some happy, long-forgotten times to a few 'old resident bards' www.colesy-juniorstockforum.com  ..
Enjoy!

Originality / T350 Flexplate with a stamping . . .
« on: January 18, 2011, 08:38:19 PM »
Going through my flexplates and I came across a plate with a 42 stamping on it.. On the other side of the part is a 1/2" dowel pin I guess there to mate  the crank flange  and the plate.
Have a few T350 flexplates and this is the only one with the dowel pin.. When did they stop coming out with this feature??  Hoping it is common to a '68 396 L35 engine.. Has overspray on it,  could this be from GM as they painted  the engine / transmission assembly??
Thanks!!
Ted
