316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Tall big block valve covers in a 67 camaro on: August 03, 2007, 11:05:51 AM
I checked the set I have here for a name and found none.
They measure 1.125 inch tall (thickness) with no gaskets

Maybe made by Mr Gasket or Eelco but not sure

how about the old school alu valve cover spacers? They raise the valve cover about an inch
I have seen these on cars but don't recall if it clears the ww motor

that would be the first 69 SS I heard of to have the COPO 9737 option.

Do they have any paperwork for this car and does it have a 140 speedo?

Not all the 1968 Yenko 427 Camaros had the COPO 9737 option but most did.
The 69 Yenko Chevelle also had it. Not many dealers other then Yenko used it.

I have seen a unrestored 69 Chevelle with the part no. stenciled on the drive shaft. There was a long debate on it and some believe it was an early service replacement drive shaft and it came that way from the service parts counter?

is it rusty on the flat press in tab? Some times the numbers are hard to see or were lightly stamped but should be there

I will have to check my Hurst book , but I believe Hurst had a contract with Demmer Tool & Die Company in Lansing, Michigan to do projects for the big 3. In 68 they did the Hurst olds and also extened some Dodges for taxi cabs. Hurst did the 68 Hemi Dart and Baracuda, some of the 1970 Yenko Dueces, a bunch of AMCs, Grand Prixs, Chrysler 300s, and others. I believe they had another shop in Detroit in addition to the Lansing facility and their PA facility.

I think some of the export 1st gen Camaros got some type of sun roof?
323  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Shifter on: May 02, 2007, 07:04:03 PM
the shape does not look like 70-71 Camaro stick.
It looks more like the Firebird stick
they have different stick numbers
324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Shifter on: May 02, 2007, 08:33:39 AM
I have collected and researched Hurst shifters over the last 20 years and have pictures that I marked with the applications

In my opinion ,
The one in the picture is not the same as 1970 Camaro Hurst
The 73 Camaro used a ITM shifter that is a copy of a Hurst shifter and has a chrome round stick but is not Hurst stamped

SS Chevelle 68-72 OEM used a Muncie shifter

325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Shifter on: May 01, 2007, 03:54:47 PM
You may not have had the original shifter in your 73 Camaro.
From what I have read, Camaro only used the OEM round stick Hurst in 69,70,71
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Shifter on: April 30, 2007, 03:27:16 PM
looks like early 70s Firebird. Pull out the stick and check the numbers
327  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NOS Yenko ZL1 Engine on: April 19, 2007, 09:26:23 AM
Yenko sold a few different versions of the alum big block.
 I don't believe the first ones Yenko sold had any Yenko ID cast in.
 Yenko was granted permission by Chevrolet to purchase blocks directly from Winters Foundry in Aug 1974.
Blocks were to be machined by Sevakis Industries in Detroit.
 This info is from the Yenko estate paperwork.
 Yenko sold alum big blocks over about a 10 year period but I am not sure if they were all made and machined by the same companies.
I know there are different versions that have been found.
328  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 3 speed shifter problem on: April 06, 2007, 02:55:39 PM
I guess this is an original shifter not a Hurst?
If parts have alot of wear it will need to be rebuilt
The original shifters needs to be clean and well greased to work correctly
Does it have the neutral gate spring? I see these missing alot on original shifters. There is just a little hat shaped metal piece that holds the spring in on one side.
These springs seem to disapear with age/use.
329  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NOS Yenko ZL1 Engine on: April 06, 2007, 02:44:16 PM
they have been trying to sell that engine for a long time with the same ad. 
not sure where they got that info
