Take a look at these threads:

17057020 = Won't be in "the book", because it's a post 1975 carb. But look on page 154.  The 170 prefix started in 76.

7028212 = 1968 MV used in Camaro with 327/275HP A/T or 350/295HP A/T and in several other Chevy applications.

In reading things it says that all SS's are big blocks.
Confused, as other things I read say 350 is a small block.

Go read it again.  It should say "All BB were SS".  There's a difference.  That does not rule out 350s.  All 67-68 350s were SS.

Go re-read this:  http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#PerformanceModels  --under performace engines.

And this:  http://www.camaros.org/engine.shtml#CamaroEngines  --under what was available.

Some of this stuff can be confusing....

Go up to the top of this page, click on those buttons and start reading.
Start here, under question 10 (about history):
http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml
Go to question 9 and order first:
Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9

Gather the numbers and anything you cannot figure out, post under Decoding and CRG will help you.  I'm sure you will get more advice from others.  Welcome to the "club"!

(Looking back at your other two posts, I see you've already posted your cowl tag...)

Take a look at this Chevron site:
http://www.chevron.com/products/prodserv/fuels/bulletin/unld-gas/
It gives some detail as to why JohnZ is giving you good advise.

Mark,

BTW, the picture below of my 5 blade fan and clutch shows why I noticed a difference.  See how much "fatter" the blades look?  And yes, my car has A/C, which explains all the belts in the picture.
1792  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Cost of Camaro on: October 07, 2006, 05:31:06 PM
Mark,

Where is the Camaro Specialties in your picture?
There is another one in Charlotte, NC = Young's Camaro Specialties.
1793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Originally a 6 cyl, now a SS 396 Clone on: October 07, 2006, 02:54:31 PM
Hotrod is right.  Take a look at the rear springs, too.  They should be multi-leaf for a 396. Unless it is a REAL BARGAIN, pass on it and find a better car.
1794  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: October 06, 2006, 11:24:01 AM
Thanks, Hotrod & Joe.  Actually, that's part of the reason I started this poll.  The previous owner of my car restored it half in the direction of sport and half in the direction of luxury. (Actually, he went in so many different directions, it's hard to tell...) When I finally decide to give up driving it for a while and put the big bucks into it, I've got to go in one direction or the other.  Both of you make a good point about how it depends on the look and the purpose. Take another look at Summertime's black on black 68 RS above.

On the other hand there were some 60s muscle cars of various models ordered with BB motors and vinyl tops.  I had a buddy in college that had a 71 red BB Chevelle, SS, stripes, and yes, a black vinyl top.  Everybody loved that car! It was sort of like an "I want it all" attitude.  How else would you explain a BB RS/SS Camaro?  Come to think of it, however, my buddy got his one night when he pulled up next to a dog bowl hubcapped, plain jane Camaro.  Turned out to be a COPO.

What do the rest of you think???

You need to talk to Ed:

1796  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: October 05, 2006, 08:23:22 PM
What do you think?
1797  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How Much Do You Drive? on: October 05, 2006, 08:20:25 PM
OK, poll closed down for now...
1798  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 05, 2006, 08:14:39 PM
Just looked at the "finished product" in your other posting.  LOOKS GREAT!
If you are not worried about the originality issue for shows, the 7 blade fan certainly is a good idea.
Isn't Skaneateles about in the middle of NY state? How long before the lake effect snows force you off the road?
1799  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 04, 2006, 08:59:04 PM
Things are fine in W-S.  I drove my 68 200 miles last weekend.
OK, my A/C question was off the wall for a L78, but my confusion was around the number of blades I was coming up with from your picture.  So your fan is 7 blade.  I did not know that was a 68 option.  Kurt's article (mentioned above) refers to 7 blade for 69.  Am I missing something here?

Mark,
When you say "heavy duty" do you mean 4 core rows?  And does your car have factory A/C?
