Decoding/Numbers / Holley Carb
« on: September 27, 2011, 08:57:20 PM »
All you decoders out there. I found a Holley carb List 1850, dated 392, # 5752426. My book goes back to 64 and this appears to be a late 63 or early 64. Anyone can help?

General Discussion / Green car on home page
« on: September 06, 2011, 07:45:58 PM »
The green car on the home page is mine. I have the owner history back to 1977. A J Rossell purchased it in Olyphant PA at that time. It was metal flake black then and was  repainted by Durbs Auto Body in Hazelton in 77. I think it was always a PA car. It is a L78 automatic with black standard interior, no tack, no guages. It is a 12a car but was first PA titled in 8/69. If anyone remembers it and can help track any previous owners it would be greatly appreciated. Mr Rossell cannot remember which has stopped my search. My e-mail is        Thanks

Mild Modifications / rectangular port intake on round port heads
« on: October 25, 2010, 06:56:07 PM »
My brother has whats is supposed to be a 72 454 in his 69 ss. He was told the heads were rectangular port but they are not. Since the car looks like a L78 he bought a 163 L78 intake. If installed on the round port heads will it work? Which gasket to use? Will performance suffer over and aftermarket aluminum round port intake? Any opinions appreciated.

Maintenance / Temperature Gauge

My 69 temp gauge does not work. It is a console gauge. I have tryed two sending units. When the ignition is turned on it moves and when you ground the sender wire to the engine it moves to hot but does not work.

Mild Modifications / Power glide to 400 turbo

I have a colum shifter that was a power glide. I have now a 400 turbo and it will not go to 1st gear only 2nd. Does anyone know what stops it or how I can adjust it?

General Discussion / L78 Transmissions
« on: April 06, 2010, 03:18:47 PM »
I have read that there were 4889 69 L78,s built. Are there any production numbers as far as automatics or other. It would be a CX 400 turbo which I understand only came with solid lifter big blocks so if the COPO,s were subtracted that would be close.
