Originality / BB Heater Box vs. SB/6 Differences
« on: August 15, 2017, 05:00:18 PM »
I recently had a chance to compare my BB heater box to a SB. I thought they were both the same and the only reason the BB box had a different part number was because of the hose cover or clips or heater core or the rubber hose hole cover. So, I tried putting the core from the BB in the SB box. It did not fit. After closer examination, I found the one thing that is different between the 2 type boxes. The BB welded in heater core plate is approximately 1/4 in. wider. I could probably make the SB work with a BB core, but I would have to modify, I.E. hammer, to make it fit. Below is what I found. I hope this helps someone ID their box in the future. Bottom box is the BB one.

Decoding/Numbers / Camshaft 3959180
« on: July 25, 2017, 12:39:16 PM »
This cam is for a ZL1 & LS7 & 2nd design L88. I have always seen these cams with 9181 designation on the end.  i have one with 9181 on the end. I recently picked up another one of these cams, but on the end is the GM part number, 3959180, instead of 9181. Both cams have a light blue paint splash, as well.

I would like to know if this cam is legit? Has anyone seen this cam with the GM number stamped like this one? 1st picture is cam example 1 with 9181, rest are example 2.

Originality / Holley 4346 vs 4053 base plates
« on: June 27, 2017, 09:28:34 PM »
In J. MacNeish's book on 1969 Z28 and SS396 facts, pg. 141, and I quote, "The base plates are also slightly different." This is talking about the differences in the 4346 vs 4053 Holley carburetors after noting that the 4346 has a vent hole on the primary bowl and the 4053 does not.
So, what are different about these base plates?

Mild Modifications / BB Long WP Vintage Air Pulley Setup with PS
« on: June 05, 2017, 10:04:15 PM »
Helping a fella with his pulleys in his BB ac,ps,car running vintage air w/ long style h2o. Here is what V.A. recommends"
PS pulley 3941107 2 groove
crank 14025185 3 groove. I have been led to believe that the 3937787 is the earlier number for the same part?
W.P. 14023155 2 groove (outer groove larger than inner).

 Here are my questions. Can it be said with certainty that the 2 crank pulleys interchange or that the "787" can substituted for the 5185?
I have the PS pulley. (1107)
Can I get a recommendation of another (besides the 3155) wp pulley that will work with this setup? The 3932430 that is specified for 69 BB AC, C60, shows a single groove pulley, unlike the 3155 2 groove
Last- Is there any difference in the pulley height on a 69 vs 71 AC-PS long W.P. pulley alignment because of redesigned brackets?

A good show if you like high end (translate: Expensive) cars. Of particular note will be a "Special Display" commemorating 50 years of Camaro/Firebird.

Restoration / 69 Deluxe door panel.
« on: May 22, 2017, 02:54:53 PM »
We all know how hard it is to find good used parts for our cars? With almost 50 year old Camaros, things like nice door panels can be like the proverbial "Golden Chicken Lips" to find! So you can imagine how stoked I was to find this LH deluxe panel for next to nothing. It even has the cutout for the remote mirror, which is what my car has!
Couple of issues, minor, I feel, I would like help on. While the window crank hole is fine on the outer side, the back cardboard is ripped. What would be the best way to keep this from deteriorating worse?? My own idea was to take that dry wall mesh and either epoxy or JB Weld and apply across that back area. Thoughts?
Next. Looks like someone put a clear coat on the panel. While most is coming off with washing or using a fingernail, how is the best way to remove this? My thought is with oven cleaner? But I do not want to ruin this panel, so I am hesitant to do anything. It is hardly noticeable only in certain light.
One pic is the "as found" condition, then, after cleaning, then the window crank hole and an example of the clear:
