Restoration / Re: best gas tank sending unit

No idea of the differences but the 67 V8 was p/n 6428068.  Looks like the 68-69 and later were in the part number ranges 6428842/43/44 (6 cyl)/45/46 (dual line).  OER seems to make some of the units. 

Have you read this?  It gives you a basic idea of the Fisher operations, but not manual-level specific details.

Originality / Re: 3 different intakes same cast number 3927184
« on: September 25, 2018, 03:40:38 AM »
According to the Colvin CBTN book, 3927184 is a 69 only 350 c.i. intake, 255 or 300 h.p. and used on passenger, Chevelle, Camaro, Corvette, Nova.  Apparently marine applications also.  Also says used extensively as a service replacement.  With the earlier dated ones having the hole for the fill tube, maybe they were service replacements, if not actually used late in the 68 model year.  If you look at the ones with a "T" by the casting number, they don't appear to even have the old boss for a fill tube. No oil fill tube used in the intake manifold for the entire 69 model year.

Update - just found this old thread:

I believe the X suffix denotes a wide gap, for HEI.  Maybe 45 or 60?

Restoration / Re: Console Cut Out Dimensions for A/M Carpet Install
« on: September 14, 2018, 09:02:23 PM »
Looking at the 67 AIM, UPC 1 Sheet C5 Front Carpets, it states to "tuck under dash mat".  Doesn't mention anything about cutting the carpet, so I wonder if they came pre-punched for a floor shifter or console?  The process is also briefly mentioned in JohnZ's article:

Do they still have the small black/gold label somewhere on the main body outside perimeter?  If so, there may still be a part number legible.

How is this delivered? In a printed report delivered through the mail or is it an email?

Sorry if this question has been asked before -

computer is pretty slow and I didn't want to sift through the 35 pages.

See reply #257 on page 18.  No idea if that's what they still send - you'd have to call and ask them.

Here's a link that may help.  Go to about the fifth line down for the "Download link:....." line, click on it and then go about halfway though that PDF document to the "Headlamp Door Diagnosis" section and look for your symptom.

Factory tops had the plastic rear window, but the glass ones should function if installed correctly, zipper or not.  I was just thinking to try unzipping if it had one, and see what happened.  You may need to post some pictures of the problem area.  I'd also put in a call to the seller.

So it has the aftermarket glass window, and I assume you've not lowered it before.  Does it also have a zipper around the glass?  If so, I'd unzip the glass and drop it down into the well, then see if the top can be fully lowered.  Also post pictures of your binding point if possible, and contact the seller and ask them about it as well. 

Originality / Re: 1969 396 / 325 HP AIR CLEANER
« on: September 08, 2018, 12:30:24 AM »

I'm terribly confused now! (imagine that!)

I began reading through the other thread that Mike referenced and everyone began responding regarding their air tube/hose/elbow and so forth. When I purchased my car, it had an open element air cleaner with a base that did NOT have the air tube/hose/elbow, along with a simple breather cap.

I assumed that to be the original as it had the chrome lid and looked just like the breather setup on AIM L35, A8. All that was missing was the 396 Turbo Jet 325 hp decals. I understood this to be the baseline air cleaner breather setup. All the air tube, hose and elbow components are part of the breather setup on K24, A3 which I thought was an optional breather system.

SO which is correct? Both? Which was the STANDARD setup? L35, A8 or the K24, A3?

Which year?  I believe they were discussing 69s and you have a 67?  Emission standards changed in 68 model year.

Here's the listing from the St. Louis sale.  Finding out someone else has the actual factory engine may be bittersweet information for the current owner.     

Under the hood resides the original DZ-code 302ci V8 proving 290 factory rated horsepower

Looks like when it sold at Mecum last year it was listed as "Matching numbers 302 engine".  I wonder if the current owner thinks it already has its original factory engine?

What's the correct finish for the front wheel hubs on a disc brake car, natural cast iron?  Car is an 11B 67 LOS

Is your car a column or floor shift?  Seems like there was a similar discussion here or on the TC site recently.  Here's a couple older ones:
