Mild Modifications / Re: Factory Camshaft spec's for 1967 L48
« on: August 07, 2022, 08:54:37 PM »
Check the specs on the Comp Cams 195/222 camshaft - listed as the replacement for L48 applications. The 222/222 cam is a 350/325 horse application (L79 327) ala the "151" hydraulic cam. Reliable camshafts to be sure -

General Discussion / Re: 67 Pacer on EBay
« on: August 07, 2022, 02:46:38 AM »
Pointedly, the grab handle is mentioned not only in the Mecum description, but also in a lot of the literature I have on hand and started collecting many years ago, long before I bought my ‘69 Pace Car. I had a friend that owned one of the replicas - his was equipped with one, most I’ve seen that were original (and not necessarily restored) had them. I’ll give it the benefit of a doubt and look at the equipment lists to see whether it was mandatory or not.

Right reasonably sure the seal goes flat on the firewall, else how would it seal ? I don't remember my firewall pad under the fuse panel when I took it out - try the AIM for the assembly sequence.

I apologize for not heeding my spell checker - I have to admit I’ve never seen a “garb” handle (lol).

At the very least, this tag is not as obvious as I’ve noticed, like the “X33” at a local show a few years back with #10 pan headed screws (flat blade) securely holding it in place. Owner said he was sure it was an original car -

There is a pic of the trim tag in the online ad - bad angle, doesn't show clearly, but has likely been off the car as it has no sealer in the trim rivet holes. (Nice shiny white firewall, too - )

First things i noticed in all the hoopla was the absent garb handle on the passenger side (i thought this was included on all '67 Pacers), plus the manual brake master cylinder (drum brake car, or manual disc ?). Otherwise, very pretty car, well out of my reach -

My gauge package wiring shots - not disturbed as far as I can tell, hopefully you can see the low fuel wiring enough to determine the terminations. If not, I'll try to find it in storage and get more pics (or better ones). Let me know if this helps.

Be sure and add the low fuel warning sensor to the gauges and dash light, Always a cool thing to have -

Restoration / Re: Rust on exhaust manifolds
« on: June 15, 2022, 01:19:18 AM »
I'd suggest electrolysis and passivate with Evaporust. You'll use less metal doing it that way - plus, it's cheap. Plus, you'll get the inside of the manifolds if you leave the electrolysis going long enough, followed by the Evaporust. Find you some Arm and Hammer Baking Soda detergent, a large enough plastic container, a good battery charger, and get to work. Actually fun to do - and effective.

Originality / Re: 1968 snorkel air cleaner 350
« on: June 10, 2022, 09:19:05 PM »
Trying to locate the original ‘68 manual trans cleaner is actually pretty tough. ‘69’s are easier to find (snorkel location is on the passenger side  opposite from the ‘68’s). I have converted several from auto to manual, not too difficult - easy if you have access to a spot welder, and handy with a Dremel.

Steve

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Caveat Emptor...tag swap?
« on: May 13, 2022, 01:21:27 PM »
At least the car is listed as a tribute. VIN tag and dash look ok, the body tag is an X11, hopefully the seller was not stupid enough to mess with the VIN tag. My X77 is an 01C, VIN sequence is in the 585xxx range -

Amazing how the wheels on this car detract from the overall appearance - really cheapen it IMO.

As you might expect, we've discussed this before. Pretty complete research on the part numbers and the history.

There is another thread imbedded in this one, has further descriptions and pics -

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Z11 on bring a trailer
« on: May 02, 2022, 12:39:32 AM »
I forgot to add its a February 68 block.  From what I found looked like it would be a 327. 

Betcha that's a 9 - look a little closer to the bottom of the 9's "tail" - it's tucked up under the top of the number. Don't think 6618's were produced that early, never seen them much earlier than December '68 for '69 issue. Feb '69 more likely -

Restoration / Re: 69 Camaro Headlight Bezel With Chrome Trim RH
« on: April 16, 2022, 02:22:15 PM »
Bob,

I may have a used set of OE's that are black. I know I've got NOS and used Argent bezels for my L78 (early car), might have a set you can look at. I'll check later today.

General Discussion / Re: RS Head Lamp Bezels Needed, 68 Z28
« on: April 16, 2022, 01:04:55 PM »
I'd say NOS bezels are way over priced and they don't fit perfect anyway. Look at some vintage photos and a lot of times the edges don't line up with the grill so good. Personally, I'd look at what CHQ has to offer.

And I don't recall what brand these repops were. CHQ didn't exist back then.

Well, actually they did exist - only it was Rick's First Generation (pre-Eckler's buyout) back then. And a danged good company it was. I was disappointed in the sale of the company, glad to see it resurface partially as CHQ, another danged good company -

Steve
