General Discussion / 67 master cylinder
« on: March 31, 2018, 12:41:36 PM »
My restored 67 has power brakes with an aftermarket (Bendix?) booster, drum rear disc front.  I replaced the leaking master cylinder (several times) with a replacement unit that is for front disc brakes.  However, the brakes work, but drive like there is no power assist. The power brakes worked perfect with the old master cylinder, so I have no reason to suspect the booster is failing.   I also have a proportioning valve.

Anyone have an idea how to fix this???


General Discussion / Re: 67 cigarette lighter removal
« on: September 23, 2017, 11:28:59 AM »
THanks for the info.  I was able to reach up under the dash and could not locate a wire attached to the back of the lighter.  This is probably an aftermarket wiring harness.  Does the retainer sleeve on the inside of the dash unscrew from the inside?  I did try to turn it, but it would not move, although I didn't try very hard because I didn't want to break something.  I did try twisting the bezel on the dash side, managed to scratch it up.  It did turn, but nothing came loose.

Will chek the AIM also

My cig lighter stopped working.  I checked all my fuses, which seem good.  Anyone know which fuse runs the lighter, I could not find a single fuse labeled lighter?  I checked the AIM, It shows the bezel with a torques spec, so I assumed you could just unscrew the bezel and remove the assembly by pulling it forward into the drivers compartment.  However, my bezel turns, but does not unscrew.

Is there a clip or something up inside the dash? 

Anyone have success removing the lighter?


General Discussion / 67 oil pan removal
« on: January 01, 2017, 03:29:10 PM »
I need to drop the pan on my 67 sm block.  THe service manual says to unbolt the 2 engine mount bolts, lift the engine from the pan with a floor jack, then insert two, 2X4 blocks between the motor mount sections.  Did that, but does not appear to provide enough clearance between the crossmember.  I have the bell housing removed also.  Does anyone know how low the main caps extend below the bottom of the block into the oil pan?

Appreciate any suggestions.

Decoding/Numbers / Engine Block Decode

I have a later 350 installed in my 67.  Have not had any luck decoding the numbers, wonder if anyone can help.
Front passenger side under the head has 12K523985 
On the rear of the block, where the bell housing attaches under the intake I see 9970010.

Anyone ever run across these numbers?

General Discussion / Re: Saginaw trains rebuild

Thanks for the info about the 2.52 muncie.  I will wait to replace the saginaw until it dies, but first priority is to replace the stock 10 bolt.  What is the formula and data you use to come up with the overall ratio?

General Discussion / Saginaw trains rebuild
« on: December 25, 2015, 01:05:18 PM »
i know the Saginaw trains is not recommended for higher hp engines, but does anyone know of a shop that can rebuild them to to make them stronger or upgrade?  I actually like the wider gear ratio.  I still have the stock 10 bolt with 3:08 gears, but plan to switch to a moser 12 bolt with 3:55.  I'm concerned about having too low of a 1st gear if I went with a m21 etc.

Here is a picture of mine.  It's a Saginaw tranny.  I'm having trouble with the shift rod rubbing the side of the switch when i use reverse and shorting out.   Apparently there is another set up that mounts a bracket on two bottom bolts of the cover and uses a short rod that attaches to the reverse linkage.

i installed a couple of reproduction ss gas caps on my 67 but can't get them to align straight.  Anyone ran into this problem?  The SS is tilted about 10 degrees  to left
Bought them from classic ind.  guess it's foreign made junk

I attended the Spring nationals and will also go to the GM nationals at Carlisle the end of June.  There is usually lots of parts vendors - kinda flee market atmosphere.  Lots of fun.  I'm not familiar with Camaro nationals.
