Originality / 67 L30 alternator fan assy - what finish ?
« on: April 17, 2012, 08:09:24 PM »
Detailing the engine area on my early production 67, and noticed the alt fan shows evidence of having been painted black. I saw no searches indicating this to be correct. Should it be silver cad or painted black ?? If anyone has a survivor or pictures of one - that would be great - Thanks.

Restoration / '67 RS with L30 327

Who produces a correct reproduction of the PCV hoses used on the L30 ?  Tried advanced search but didn't find anything. The AIM (L30, A3, page 279) lists the part numbers in question as 1) 3916339 hose, 2) 3829058 clamp, and 3) 3916338 hose. Thanks for all info / replies.

General Discussion / Connecting rod bearings
« on: October 18, 2011, 03:44:37 PM »
My vehicle (early '67) has the L30 engine which I am rebuilding. I noted that the bearing suppliers offer standard and high performance bearings for this engine. I want to replace with the same bearings as it was built with, but have not been able to have the original bearings identified. The numbers on the rear of the con rod bearing shell are as follows: A circled capital A, followed by GMM400, with a number 58736 also. Can anyone ID this bearing so that I may replace it with the same type / quality?? Tahnks for any input.

Decoding/Numbers / 67 L30 Carb
« on: May 12, 2011, 08:46:38 PM »
I've read the CRG reports on carbs, and understand that all 67's used Rochester QuadraJets, but it also states that Carter Manufactured them with the same numbers and coding, with the "Carter manufactured for GMC" on the main body. My question is - is it possible that the car may have been built with the Carter QuadraJet instead, as I have a 10B car, with the early Carter #7027202 DB with date codes between the engine and car assembly dates. ???

Restoration / OEM style full quarter panels '67 convert
« on: May 06, 2011, 11:40:16 AM »
 Does anyone know of a reproduced "correct" style full quarter with the telephone handset stamp, and no vertical indentations at the door jamb attachment area, for an early build '67 (10B). Most have variations but can't seem to find the one matching my vehicles.

General Discussion / Radiator Application ??
« on: May 05, 2011, 10:07:42 PM »
I'm currently restoring a '67 vert, and the radiator that was in the car seems to be incorrect, and I've not been able to identify. It has the soldered on large tag as on 68/69's. 21" 2 row core (automatic) Harrison with IA and CS tanks, coded as FH. Anyone with an idea as to application ? Part number at bottom of tag is badly rusted, appears to be 302?300


General Discussion / rear window regulators - 68
« on: February 11, 2011, 03:30:27 AM »

  I currently have some rear window regulators for sale at TC, and was told the coupe and convertible rear regulators are the same. Can anyone confirm ? Also what would be a fair value for the pair - thoughts and opinions welcome. Newbie to this site.

General Discussion / '68 Owners Manual
« on: January 15, 2011, 08:57:57 PM »
I am in the process of getting ready to restore my '67 RS Convertible, and found a '68 owners manual - possibly from when I scrapped a wrecked '68 coupe many years ago. The manual is the second printing (Nov), and has no missing pages or writing on the inside, just some slight water damage as seen in the pics. My question is this - what value does it have ?? ???
