Why don't you get a pump with a 3/8" output and install a fitting for a 3/8" input on the carburetor?  That way you can take full advantage of your 3/8" fuel line.  But I agree with Darrell above, it shouldn't cause any issues leave it 5/16" from the pump to the carb.

Is the filler plug 3/4" or 1"

Since the X-codes were on the Fisher Body side of the plant and before the car got a VIN wouldn't it perhaps be more proper to analyze Fisher Body Numbers and cowl tag dates as opposed to VINs which were assigned on the Chevrolet side?

I agree, do not sand the block. 

If you are concerned about your car, how about taking pictures of the dash VIN and cowl tag and posting them?  A picture of the dash VIN without the dash pad in place would be ideal so that the members here can evaluate the rivets and the complete VIN tag piece.

I believe that the visors are the color of the seats.
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: has anyone run Sealed Power/Fed. Mogul/Speed Pro camshafts? on: April 15, 2014, 07:27:47 AM
I have used Sealed Power/Fed. Mogul/Speed Pro camshafts in the past without issues.  This is a very common camshaft brand for stock replacement and rebuilds.

With respect to quality control, I was told about 10 years ago that there were only 1-2 camshaft makers in the world and that all of the cam grinders got their blanks from the same basic maker.  This however seemed to coincide with the reduction in zinc in the oils.  Who knows what the problems was, but the solution now seems to be more diligence and attention at the break-in and the use of appropriate oil/additive. 

In conclusion, I do not know it is so much who grinds the cam, I believe that it is more the grind itself.

I saw the car in the link which is what triggered my original question.  I am not sure however that the car in that link is actually butternut, it is too hard to tell.  

Here some pictures of three cars that I have on my system.

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 - Y-1 (Butternut with White top) - Anyone have any pictures? on: March 28, 2014, 10:42:08 AM
I am restoring a 1967 convertible which is coded as Y-2 and 707 yellow interior on the cowl tag.  This is the standard butternut yellow with black convertible top.  I have discovered that some 1967 Camaros came through coded Y-1 which would be a white top. I have only seen one or two photos of butternut yellow cars with white tops but they were not good quality photos.

Also, I believe that the D91 color was the same as the top color?  Is this accurate?  So if the car had a white top and D91 stripe then it would have a white stripe?

Thanks.  If anyone has any pictures or any cowl tag photos showing Y-1 and 707 interior, I would love to see them.

Thanks

Is the fill tube with the return spring tab proper for a 1967?  Or di the 1967 use a smooth tube without the return spring provision?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 8.2 10 bolt differential on: December 19, 2013, 09:18:06 AM
The power isn't necessarily the problem, it is how hard will you launch your car and how well will it hook on that launch.  Your car could have 500hp+ but if your rear suspension isn't set up to put all that to the ground with no or minimal wheel spin then perhaps you won't have a problem.  Fresh, well set-up Rear axles are usually only grenaded when someone abuses the car or drags it or when the car is designed to hook and not spin at all.

If you have a car that is designed to hook and not spin, then I suggest something more stout like a beefed up 12 bolt, 9" or Dana 60.  If you have a car that you like to run on the street and occasionally have fun with and you don't have an insane amount of torque or horsepower then I would say you would be fine with the 10.2.

The Cherokee's VIN is 124677N233228 and according to the cowl tag has an 06B build.  The car was for sale at Russo & Steele in Jan. 2012.  How could of it then have been at the April '67 auto show?  Or were these pictures from the 1968 show?

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original Oil Fill Cap - 1967 327 (standard engine ventilation system) on: October 23, 2013, 10:49:02 AM
Yes, the cap shown by 1967RS-NH is for the RPO K-24 system.  The cap I'm referring to would be a breather and have mesh, but I am unsure what it is supposed to look like as there are many out there claiming to be correct.  Does anyone know what is assembly line correct for the oil fill/breather cap on a 1967 327 with standard engine ventilation? The assembly manual doesn't show enough detail to determine what the cap should look like.

Thanks
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Original Oil Fill Cap - 1967 327 (standard engine ventilation system) on: October 22, 2013, 02:11:23 PM
What is the "correct" oil fill/breather cap for a 1967 L30 327/275hp with the standard engine ventilation system as shown in the 1967 Assembly Manual in UPC 6, sheet C5?  Also, I see that some restoration parts houses list a decal for the cap.  Was the decal an assembly line thing or is it an aftermarket/restoration thing?

Thanks
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 camaro vin location on: October 18, 2013, 10:47:47 AM
Actually in several states if the original VIN is known it can be used, with exceptions, in the state issued VIN plate.  I think the first order of business is to remove the paint from the plate and find the hidden VINs.  Until these issues are sorted out, I would stay away.
