General Discussion / Re: 1969 Smog pump and parts on ebay

Might help if the pump had a relief valve.

You mean like this one? (See below). I got this one off Craigslist last year for $25! WITH the correct white fan!!!

And thanks John. It's far from "factory", but I saved a ton of $$$ taking short cuts. Like the smog hoses. They're standard cooling hoses from Auto Zone! And the valves are from Rock Auto that I painted with silver and gold paint. They really turned out good. A very light coat of silver and a very light coat of gold over that, and they even have the "color change" when you look at them from different angles! The only thing I'm not really happy with is the diverter valve. It's supposed to be kind of a flat green. Sorta like your basic military green but I couldn't find that in a spray can. If I ever do, I'll redo it. And the filter isn't right either, so I'll need to redo that with flat black, like "radiator black".

When I was looking for a setup for my 69 Corvette, I found a pump locally (Cragislist) for $20 with an incorrect diverter valve, but it "looked" correct so I kept it. The pump itself was in "good" shape, but had a black fan on it. The correct repop white fan was $70, the brackets (used) were another $30 and the hoses, clamps and valves, etc... came to a little under $100. The repop smog tubes were the most expensive at $300 a set but they're perfect. So all in all, I have a little over $500 in the system and although it's not "show quality" (things like I painted diverver valve instead of plating it because that cost STUPID money), it's close enough for government work. Especially since I don't "show" the car.

Its a lot of old junk.  Not even correct for a 69 Camaro.  Seized pump, wrong trees that have been cut off so no fittings, wrong bracket, wrong diverter valve, some extra bracket stuff.  Not worth much of anything.  JUNK!!!

I totally agree. IMO, he's got MAYBE $40 - $50 bucks worth of usable parts there.

General Discussion / Re: Black console gauges
« on: December 13, 2018, 04:16:48 PM »
Nope. Black gauges were used on 68-74 Nova, which weren't assembled in Norwood or L.A. during this time period, so they wouldn't even have access to them. And that car wouldn't have even been scheduled to be built if the parts (the gauges in this case) weren't available.

More info in gauge colors HERE.

Yeah, if you look at the very top of pictures two and three, you can see another one (the chrome lid one and the black lid one). Looks like he has two.

I don't think yours is the LF7 Bryon. I think yours is the L30/L48 version as you suspect. Here's what the LF7 looks like (see attached). Notice that the end that attaches to the air cleaner doesn't bend up as much as yours.

Don't know this guy and you'd have to examine it very closely to make sure it's what you need, but I know a lot of you guys are looking for this AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY.

Bryon, also note there's a difference between the LF7 pipe (P/N 3917680) and the L30/L48 pipe (P/N 3916309).

I moved your thread from the Site Comments section, but I believe the answer is no. The 6 banger pipe (P/N 3915952) is longer and shaped differently than the LF7 pipe (P/N 3917680).
