For what its worth,
  I  would not let a shop work on my small block heads if I had to tell them what is necessary to install the 2.02 valves.the heads have only been around for 4 decades.If they aren't experienced enough to be able to educate you I'd look somewhere else.I had a set done several years ago,I took them to my machinist told him what I wanted to do. his questions were do you want them installed as they would have originally been done, do you want any extra work(porting)done.

The Rocherster #'s for a 68 Camaro 396/325 are 7028210A/T  7028211S/T  as per Chevrolet by the numbers which is the resource most recognized.The  previous #'s were for a 396/350.  I'll bet your really confused now.

yes it could be a NOS cap the original and early GM caps that you could purchase over the counter were riveted.sometime later the GM over the counter caps were screwed together(don't know the date for this).the same is true for the SS caps.i know this because i bought a SS cap from GM  several years ago while collecting parts for my car and questioned this same point(screwed together) its still in the sealed GM bag setting on a shelf waiting to be utilized.the riveted ones usually bring more money.

I'm not that well versed on 3/4 speed holes.Why would the holes be different and how do 67/68 autos on the floor with linkage figure into this? I put a 4spd in place of the 3spd in my 67 and it fit,it did have a aftermarket shifter though.

Originality / 67/8/9 lower control arms
« on: December 19, 2005, 05:22:10 AM »
does anybody know if there is a distinguishable difference between 67/8/9 lower control arms? the metal on mine is peened up where somebody got carried away removing the ball joints.i know the subframes have minor variations for each year,but don't know about the control arms.i'm having everything powdercoated and these imperfections will probably sounds trivial but i'm particular and judges notice these things. thank

General Discussion / Re: Catalytic converters on 69' Camaro !
« on: December 19, 2005, 05:01:45 AM »
i don't know if its available in your area but there is a product called "Guarenteed To Pass" its alcohol based and makes the engine burn super clean(because of the alcohol) u add it to your tank with recommended amount of gas.i gutted my catalytic converter on my 96 F350 w/460f/i and it wouldn't pass. years ago we used to retard the timing to around 4/6 degrees and lean the carb out and they'd pass. i couldn't lean out the fuel injection on the truck so i retarded the timing add 2 containers of dry gas(its the same as the "Guaranteed To Pass") (alcohol) to about 10 gallons of gas and she was burning oh so clean passed the sniffer and the dyno test.give it a try all u can do if fail,dry gas is cheap and won't hurt anything,if u have a 69 camaro i assume u have a timing light about 4-6 degrees of timing should do it and your on your way.

For the most part the reason for ordering the RS option was to get the hidden headlights and black grille.The additional chrome dress-up was icing on the cake or car.From the discription it sounds like somebody added the cosmetics they liked sometime in the cars history.

I haven't seen anybody answer this ,but I suspect the line from the shocks would indicate somebody installed air shocks to clear those big tires.  Paul
