My 1st thought. Not sure he is still doing these? For some reason , I thought his health may be preventing? Not sure where I heard that. Doesn't hurt to try though.

Mild Modifications / Re: Small block with th400

If you have s big block radiator & shroud , then yes, I would go ahead and and get the bb frame stands

If you do not have a bb radiator with the bb frame stands, then you will either have to leave the shroud off ( it will run hotter and be a constant safety concern with the car running). Or, modify the shroud.

Or, use the sb mounts & radiator and modify the trans mount.

If it is a true drag only car, then, that is what sawzalls and torches were made for. If you don’t run a power booster, I would think that you could run the small block frame mounts shroud, radiator, and modify the trans x member. I see bb and sb shroud setups done all the time on these Ebay clones. A lot of those bb cars run a th350 though. Hope this helps and I hope there is no misinformation. 68 frame mounts are different then a 69.

The sad thing is....someone may buy them thinking they got (doing my best Brooklyn Jewish accent) "such a deal".


Reading a book about that bridge. Washington Roebling (the chief engineer of the bridge) was one of those truly gifted people, definition of a civil engineer. A hero of the battle of Gettysberg as well. Little did I know.

...and of course the Roebling bridge in our town, Jimmy, connecting Cincy to Ky. Over the Ohio river. Not to hijack, but my grandpa was a Civil Engineer And a true gifted genius. He designed many well known bridges and highways. His best known achievement is that he designed several crucial items, like the launch pad legs, for the Apollo moon launch.

Restoration / Re: Norwood stickers
« on: November 26, 2017, 01:32:42 PM »
Well that answers my question, I was about to start a thread asking this, just found them on my car.

Related question, I want to keep as much as I can original. So in the process of doing some body work and don't want anything to happen to the stickers. Whats the best way to protect and preserve them? 
Best way to preserve details is to not take it to a body shop. Most shops take no care or interest in doing things “right”. If you like overspray on parts that should not have it, parts lost, work not done as asked, take it to a body shop. Otherwise, find a restoration shop that knows 1st gen Camaros.

I think on the Camaro pump the return hose pipe is indexed slightly away from the block. Big cars it is turned toward the block. I have a couple if you need more pics.
Not saying your isn't original but the return hose pipe should be indexed toward the block. Maybe your got bent? Mine is original and looks like the one in the fourth pic.

You contradict yourself? Can’t have it both ways?
