Originality / Re: Original L79 valve covers
« on: July 25, 2018, 12:17:54 PM »
Thanks Kelley King and Cook DW for your replies.  Invaluable info as I just might've put the covers on upside down.  Kinda looks that way and with the pushrods a rubbing, lightly I may add, but, nonetheless.  I have to get the two or 3  sets cleaned up before I post 'em up.
Encore, thanks for the answers and e-bay photos.

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!
Ted

Is a   29202   carb  good with a date code of  098 9 . . ??

Good afternoon!!
These BBC rockers have an    L    on one end.   Read somewhere that these rockers are a bit longer than the   H    rockers.
Just can't see anywhere that they were in fact used with the L88  7/16ths H.P. push rods.
 
Thanks!

Thanks bcmiller..
BBC rockers stamped with an "L" also??         These " L "  rocker arms were designated as Long slot ..  Just hoping they were used with  my  7/16ths pushrods.

Originality / Re: Camaro driveshaft identification and . . .
« on: November 17, 2016, 06:11:11 PM »
Good afternoon bcmiller.  Here is what went on with my driveshaft. I measured it coming in at U-joint to U-joint centers at 48.5 inches.  Sold it to a p[erson who was looking for 1970 - 1981 shaft.  He calls me up after a week and says it is not right for his '79 Camaro for whatever reason.  The older U-joint with the spring retaining clips were on shafts prior to 1975 and the newer U-joints with a heated plastic installation process were from GM from '76 and up.  I had sold him the spring retaining clip U-joint shaft.
Now, a question; what is the length of a  a 69 shaft versus a shaft from 1970 - 1981 measured center of U-joint to center of U-joint? 
Is a '69 shaft 49"   and a 70 - 81 shaft 48.5"  ??
Thanks!
Ted

3782609 and GM3 are on the front of the pump.  S3 in raised letter / number is on the rear.
Hope that did not mix anyone up with my miscue.!

Hope you get home soon, safe and back to health.  O'er the many years you've been bombarded with me moot questions.
Get well John!!

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!!
