Has anyone noted any paint/ inspection daubs on the steering components?

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?
valve head
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.

I had to rebuild the motor and pay all the registration fines ammounting to a little over $2500. I drove it until it wouldn't pass smog, would you know the following year the cut off date was moved to '74

Yesterday the Shelby van was a head turner, as was the orange/white stripe 69 Camaro.

The Shelby van? You mean this turd? We stopped to look at it only because we couldn't figure out why it was there.

Is it a desirable vehicle? We kind of thought it represented a low point in an otherwise great mans life.





Yep that one - It was a WTF on the tow truck
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Mecum Anahiem on: November 22, 2013, 07:45:59 PM
That doesn't look like burnished brown to me!

I second that - and being in CA its entire life (assuming VN and NOR used the same paint) it should look like mine
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Mecum Anahiem on: November 22, 2013, 07:41:00 PM
I will be watching this one to see what it sells for. I wish I could afford another one!

That's the one i saw on the back of a flatbed tow truck
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Mecum Anahiem on: November 21, 2013, 06:47:47 PM
Are you planning on going ? or are you looking at purchasing any of them?
I have been to a handful of Mecum auctions mostly in Indianapolis, just long enough to look over some nice cars as I would if I was at a car show. Sometimes I'll note a lot number if I am curious what it bid up to, I look it up later online when I get home, I never stay for the auction, to boring for me. If I knew there were some unrestored cars up there in Anaheim I might check it out, I live in SoCAl now and Anaheim is about an hour from me, pending traffic.
No, I work in Anahiem and have seen the parade of cars on trailers being taken to ACC. saw 2 Corvettes this afternoon, both of late 60's vintage. Yesterday the Shelby van was a head turner, as was the orange/white stripe 69 Camaro.
I also saw the 54 Chevy truck I was looking at purchasing from the Lambrecht dealership in Nebraska

Anyone going to or planning on watching the Mecum auction?
I saw several first gen Camaros being transported over the last few days

William
With the little information of original polyglas tires, is there any corelation to the trim level? i.e. more likely on an RS equipped vehicle, etc?
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original tires on: November 06, 2013, 05:48:08 AM
I had a polyglas spare when I recieved my car. Original owner said they were on the car at the dealership
