On eBay, appears to be N138616, V0131MU, block, rotating assembly and heads.  Looks like the Flint stamp was missed, ground out and restamped?

Restoration / Rally wheel valve stem length
« on: September 29, 2011, 07:58:40 PM »
Anyone know the correct length - either overall or protruding from the rim to cap - for rally wheel valve stems?  Specifically 67 DG 14x6 wheels.  I believe they were Dill 627s, but seems like there are various lengths for this number.  Thanks. 

Decoding/Numbers / Harrison radiator small tag
« on: April 06, 2011, 02:14:47 AM »
Anyone know what the small "BG" tag is on this UK 23 inch 3-row?  It is on the driver side IH tank, so not the remnants of an overflow hose clip.  Radiator is believed to be original to a 67 LOS 11B, L48 with a/c.  Also, does the rail look correct for 67?  Looks like a cross between the 68 and 69 rails shown in the OEM cooling system report section.

1968 - Orphans / 18N348165 Powerglide

I found this stamp on the Powerglide in my 67.  A little scraped up but I believe these are the correct numbers.  Knew I had the wrong tranny, didn't know it was a 68 Camaro unit until I recently pulled it for minor rebuild.  Passenger side pan stamp is T8S02D. 

1967 - Orphans / 12637 LOS 771 (11B Kxxx?)

Anyone know the whereabouts of this deluxe interior sport coupe?  I assume it would have to be be an 11B and around K250 (my car)

I have your L & R body inspection tickets.  Rediscovered them a couple weeks ago when going through my old docs.

I pulled these from under my rear seat about 25 years ago.  They were shoved in between seat bottom springs and the seat bottom as I recall.  Always thought they were mine until I looked closer.  Options are shown as (1) E 2S 3SK.  Left ticket just shows 3K.

My car is 12667 LOS 687.  Go figure.  Trash bins must have been full that day.   

Restoration / What are these block stampings?
« on: July 07, 2010, 04:48:35 PM »
Early 67 MU block, not original to car but from same plant and week mine was built (LOS 11B).  I believe the engine build date was in mid August.


Restoration / Closed or open element
« on: April 30, 2010, 02:01:49 PM »
Without the original block, is there any other way to determine if an early 67 had closed or open venting, by build date, options, plant etc?  Car now has a numbers correct but not matching 657 block.

Originality / Early 67 L48 engine details
« on: April 28, 2010, 04:46:26 PM »
Newbie here, please excuse if these have appeared earlier.  Car is RS/SS conv w/ air, 11/11/66 LOS build date

For the script chrome valve covers, on which side does the one with two wire tabs go, and what do the tabs hold?  I don't see this detail in the AIM.

Oil filler tube, chrome or black?  Car is closed element if that matters.  I have a NOS Z28 3889316 tube bought several years ago, but AIM lists a different part #.  Seems like the repop suppliers are pushing  chrome Z28 version as a correct tube.

For the crankcase vent tube, the AIM shows hose 3883966 and a tower clamp used to connect the tube to the air cleaner bottom tube.  Is this available anywhere, or is their a suitable alternative?

Lastly, did the Powerglide use a 14in 168 tooth or 12.75in 153 tooth flexplate?  My car is in storage a couple states away and I wanted to order a new one in advance for replacement during an engine swap.  Never had it apart before.
