1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Sway bar bracket change on: September 24, 2014, 07:39:25 PM
While having difficulty trying to find replacement bushings for my sway bar, I often wondered when the change occurred. Any ideas? Would it make sense to create a research topic upon such? Having an 06A(2nd week) Norwood car, I can only assume the change to the larger, fingered, bracket happened before then.
What I have found soo far is that the bracket remained the same from 1967- some time in '69.  I can only surmise that the new bracket design may have been to accomidate the larger 13/16 sway bar for 1970.

Was there only one style of tie rod sleeve or were there two? 
Thank you

These are the bushins that are supposed to be correct for the bracket with the fingers.  I have gotten two sets from different vendors and they are exactly the same. I also picked up a set for the other bracket and it is very obvious they are incorrect

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / sway bar bushing replacement on: September 12, 2014, 06:07:06 PM
I am in the midst of replacing my sway bar to frame bushings on my 69 , but no matter how I install them, it just doesn't look right
I have the later year mounts(with fingers).
any pointers? does the narrower slip under the top? is it supposed to just squish, leaving an oval for the bar to sit in? do I need to cut something?
Thank you for the help

I saw this one that mentions the blue daub, but nothing about the yellow x by the A arm pocket

here are some pictures of what i found.  If the CRG thinks they are too detailed and might help over-restorers, please remove them

Has anyone noted any paint/ inspection daubs on the steering components?
While cleaning my subframe I found some additional markings  Grin
in addition to the original spring tags

stopped by the machine shop yesterday and 202 valves fit the heads

I got a call from my machine shop today letting me know the valves I had purchased to replace my originals were too small.

Valve head too small or valve stem too small?

I purchased direct replacement valves for the L48

Colvin in CBTN shows the 041 was used (I assume in rare cases) as an alternative head on the Z's, and unverified as the Corvette 350/350 heads. I guess it might be possible that they could have been installed on a 350/300 by mistake (same 041 head with 1.94/1.50 valves). Depends on how long you have known the engine - possible upgrade at some point to the 2.02/1.60 valves ?

Aberrations are difficult to explain, even more difficult to verify.

I understand that they could have used, though not very likely, a 041 head on a 302 or a 350/350 - but from what I know, those types of motors were all built at Flint. I am under the impression that Tonawanda did not build any of the 302 or 350/350 motors, thus would not have had a need to install the larger valves

I have a 350/300 with 041 heads and purchased the 1.94 and 1.50 valves
Are these not the correct valves? What other valves would be in 041 heads?
This was a Tonawanda built motor so it should not have 2.02/1.60. am I right with this thinking?
I know the history of the car and know the heads have only been off twice, once to repair a head gasket and when I replaced the rings.
