I believe the 375hp block has the different tapped holes above the oil filer then the 350hp block

Traction Master made a weld on round traction bar that was used in the 60s.
I have a NOS set of these
It is a round bar with a bracket on each end that was welded on.
They were more for road racing and were used on early Shelby Mustangs.

They were not too good for drag racing as they would bend or break the weld under drag use with big tires or slicks.

cool pictures and info

Have you asked Jim about work he did for Chevy in the 60s?

I have read that they did testing on cars and power train testing for Chevy on Jim's test track where it can be kept more secret.

Have read that Jim used some of Chevy's prototype transmissions on his race cars.

What color is this car on the trim tag?
Dana had a house drag car 68 Camaro that was a special order Orange and another found documented Dana 68 Camaro is Orange also.
Doesn't mean a a lot but curious what color your car is.

Also Dana used their emblem on some of the 427 cars so if you have original fenders you can look for extra holes. An NICB report is hard to get but can tell you the original dealer.

I collect old speed parts and have some 60's - 70s rev limiters. The ones I have are cable driven off a tach drive dist. They have a centrifical governer divice inside a box with an adjustable switch. The weights on the governer trip the switch at a set RPM and shuts off power to the coil.
cool old speed part

pic is the 68 Dana drag car

Dick Harrell and Fred Gibb were drag racing together in 1968 and wanted a car to compete in the auto trans class. NHRA rules called for 50 car minimum factory built so they ordered 50 COPO 9738 SS L78 Novas.

Some of them were converted to SS 427 Novas by Harrell.

The 1967 and 68 Yenko 427 Super Camaros were AHRA certified legal drag cars but NHRA would not accept the 427 Yenkos as factory built until the 1969 COPO 9561 were used.

Yenko was a certified manufacturer by FIA and SCCA for the Yenko Stinger project so AHRA acceped them with a 50 car minimum but NHRA didn't.
276  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 camaro BB 4 speed shifter mount on: May 05, 2009, 07:56:33 AM
The BB mount plate locates the shifter 1/2 inch to the dr side and 3/8 inch to the rear compared to the SB mt plate. The OEM mt plates both have a slot to adjust the shifter location forward and back.

The Hurst aftermarket mt plate is same for BB and SB and is a more solid design thick steel plate with a spacer plate but does not have the slot to provide the adjustment.

here is a thread where I posted pictures of the two OEM mt plates

277  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Carlisle and the NEW COPO on: May 05, 2009, 07:39:13 AM
That is the same company that made the Yenko clone.

I wonder what the buyers do about taxes. Some states get a 7% sales tax when you go to register the car. That will be over 7K just to put plates on it.
278  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 68 copo with hideaway head lights? on: May 05, 2009, 07:25:01 AM
Yes some of the 1968 Yenko 427 Super Camaros were SS RS with COPO 9737

The was also a 1968 SS L78 TH400 Nova with COPO 9738
279  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z Front shock sticker location on: November 19, 2008, 10:47:57 AM
thanks Tom.
it says 1962-1967 ChevyII on the box of the shocks but I was wondering if they were the same for 67 Camaro as they look the same but the lenth can be different
280  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Why am I burning up spark plugs so quickly? on: November 17, 2008, 09:40:26 AM
Are you sure you are using the correct spark plug? Sounds like the heat range is too cold.

Maybe a hotter plug will help but you need to check if it is ok to run that heat range
281  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z Front shock sticker location on: November 17, 2008, 09:32:31 AM
I have a set of NOS Delco shocks in the box that look like Camaro rears and have a 1966 date part no. on the shock is 3178182

they have a "BS" decal that is 1.5 inch from top edge of shock to top of decal.

I can't find the application for these. Do you have a number for the Camaro rears?
282  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Steering wheel report finally done!! on: November 14, 2008, 12:52:01 PM
nice job. Looks like some great info there
283  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How do I install a bayonet style stick into the shifter on: November 14, 2008, 12:48:24 PM
you need the 2 rubber parts and 2 metal locking shim parts. This all goes together with the shifter stick to make a sandwich that holds it in
284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Muncie trans from Oldsmobile has odd switch on forward shift arm.. on: November 05, 2008, 09:26:43 AM
