Must be why most of them are cracked.

I agree with Joe, I wonder if there is any information on how many cars came with the console option? Of course it probably would not take into account that a lot of them were automatic cars since the column shift seems to be a little rare. When you go to a show almost all have consoles but back in the 70,s and 80,s most cars I had (GTO,s and Chevelles included) did not. I remember a popular mod being the Hurst shift boot which did not really fit console cars.

Are you sure it is not just bubbles? Your fuel pickup sock might be bad. If you blow in the fuel line to the tank you can tell.

I agree about the cam. I had a 396 with flowmasters that was really calm especially at idle. A little cam goes a long way. Beautiful chambered exhaust.

My Z has no console. I get a lot of comments at the shows about it being a non console car. If you do the swap the shifter ball is different also.

They are people making Camaro 12 bolts from big car units. Some are really hard to tell. Some are easy to see.

I think I would look elsewhere also. I have had 2 sets of heads deemed worthless by two different people. Running both today.

Well guys, Ebay did investigate and refunded my money to my paypal account. It took a few days and now I need to figure out how to get it from my paypal account. Still no response from the seller. I don,t know if it was a scam or if something happened to him. I still would like to have the parts. At least I have the funds if another comes up.

Mild Modifications / Re: Tri-Power 427 fit under 69 SS hood?
« on: March 12, 2018, 12:55:17 PM »
This thread kind of started with hood clearance. It does fit, the green pole is to give you an idea of how much. This is a 68,69 style unit. The 67 is 1.5 inches taller, but since they bring a premium price if you had one a trade would be really easy. Since Noah is building an Ark hear is NC I have not yet road tested it yet but it runs really well in the shop. A friend is checking his parts for a shorter throttle rod. The L78 is a little long and I can,t get wide open throttle with it. It kind of surprised me that it fit with really no modifications.

Hawk if you send me your contact to I have some pics but I can,t get them to post. Since photobucket went out I have not gotten a resizer to work yet. I also did a short video of the startup but it takes a little while to download.

I finally got the tripower installed on my L78 last night. Since I had already run it on the test stand motor it went fine. I did the old blue tape on the valve covers for distributer timing and bolted everything on and it fired up and ran great with only an idle adjustment. The L78 throttle linkage is a little to long and the coil bracket would only take one bolt but everything else fit fine. The PCV and air cleaner grommets switched sides and worked fine. Hood clearance is fine and all hoses reconnected perfectly. It all looks factory. If it stops raining here road test is next. The L78 parts are shelf art for now.

Finally checked my 08E car. All glass has IV except the passenger door glass TV 10. Front and rear not original. All are Soft Ray LOF. I think Austin,s car is the same.
