Originality / thremo housing #3896958
« on: April 05, 2011, 10:27:35 PM »
Aluminum thermostat housing #3896958 looks EXACTLY the same as the 3877660 housing.
Except for just the spring retainer flange is higher.
Anyone know what the application for the 958 is?

Can someone post a picture of an original 1967 underhood lamp.

Decoding/Numbers / really nice car - was this possible?
« on: October 13, 2008, 02:53:38 AM »
This is a real nice 70Z listed on ebay.
I believe it is WAY over priced already, but I was watching for a bit. 
still thinking of adding a 70 to my collection.

I may be wrong, but I did not think there was EVER a LT-1 or 302 produced at Tonowanda.
Anyone know for sure?

Seller has a lot of stuff to back it up - but I just thought this was not possible?

Originality / Smog hose part numbers
« on: August 09, 2008, 10:32:48 PM »
I am trying to duplicate the exact markings of the smog pump hoses.
I want to find the correct part numbers and different applications of the ribbed smog hoses?

Were both hoses the same part number? are different years the same?
I am finding conflicting data from what I see in my collection, and what is written in the AIM, and other books.

BB hoses are longer, but is the part number different?

Anyone have any pictures?


Restoration / Diverter valve question
« on: March 13, 2008, 04:23:08 PM »
Just sent out a bunch of diverter valve hoods to be replated.
have always done these in Grey phosphate - to match the many original NOS, and survivor ones I have saved.

Now I see in that new book that just came out....
the color is told to be either flat black paint, or Black Phosphate???

I have 32 hoods at the plater now - I want to get these right.
What is correct?

Originality / Horn relay date question
« on: July 04, 2007, 07:07:47 PM »
The 862 and the 890 horn relays were both used during the 69 model year.
Does anyone know exactly when the changeover happened?  ???

Restoration / proper plating procedure
« on: March 20, 2007, 12:41:54 AM »
Got some smog check valves cleaned and ready to be plated.
Do I need to plug the ends, or were the insides plated also?
Will not plugging them harm their function?

Originality / Correct radiator for my 1967 396-325
« on: November 09, 2006, 10:51:10 PM »
Well, it is time to pull out the 67, and fix a few of the incorrect things that I
have been putting off all these years. (if it aint broke....).
i have collected the correct water pump, 4 blade fan and spacer.
And finally found the correctly dated 880 manifold.

The big item that I still need is a correct Harrison radiator.

Any Idea where i can find one?
I hear that Heartbeat has a very correct reproduction - is this true?
Or, should I continue to wait to find an original one? which is not getting any easier.
I have some harrison tanks, buy they are not Camaro ones, can anyone reconfigure them?

It says here in the reports, that I need a 3 core 23" for the 1967 L-35 Auto - 396-325
"67-68    BB auto =  OM"

Is this going to be less productive then the 4 core I am now using?
Should I just leave it alone? -
I am not running hot after many years of trial and error, here in south Florida.
Will changing from a 4 core radiator w/ 5 blade clutch ,to the correct 3 core radiator, and 4 blade fan-
going to give me problems?
Any opinions? ???
