286  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / rectangular port intake on round port heads on: October 25, 2010, 01:56:07 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.

My X33 RS is a Scuncio car from RI. I just thought this guy might remember it but he has not replied.

According to Danny Nelson ( the 4 speed guy at most large shows) there are two main causes for leaks. 1st is overfilling, if the trans is not level such as raiseing the front or rear only or filling while out of the car it will leak. He even told me to do a 1/2 inch below the hole. The 2nd is the cluster gear shaft at the front of the case where it touches the bell housing. 4speedman.com machines a groove on the shaft for an O ring in his rebuilds. He told me a trick about this one that worked on my Z car. Loosen the trans bolts about 3/8 inch and slide the unit back. Nothing else has to be loosened. Now you can see the shaft. Put some good sealer on a business card and carefully slide it in over the shaft hole. Tighten the trans bolts and ride. I tryed it and it works. I even do it when replacing a trans whether I know it leaks or not.

My car has the return on the carb but not the return line. I plugged the return and it did not run right. I was told that it is a vent also. I run mine open with no line and have never seen anything come out of it.

When my 69 was redone the guy had a 68 Hurst shifter he located the hole with. I later got a 69 shifter and installed it. It would not go into 2nd or 4th until I reworked the floor to move the the hole back.

Does anyone know what makes the ignition buzzer work on a four speed car? I know there is a contact in the column but does it have anything to do with the clutch switch or the reverse light switch. I checked the wiring diagram in the AIM but it crosses 3 pages and is not very clear. The reverse linkage from the column to the trans is not on my four speed car due to headers and the clutch switch is evidently not connected either.On my automatic car it does work when you open the door with the key in but that car has working reverse lights and no clutch switch.

Carolina Blue is team color for sports teams at the University Of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They paint the streets blue when they win big games. The busses and firetrucks in Chapel Hill are Carolina Blue. Tarheel fans are serious people who are often seen wearing Carolina Blue everything. Back in the 60,s and 70,s Carolina Blue cars were very popular here and still are. The Duke fans even liked it but we called it Baby Blue. The cruize ins and shows are slowing down here but there are a few more. If I find A real one I will check the codes and post.

Where is the ignition buzzer on a 69?
296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Need 69 Camaro buying advice on: October 02, 2010, 06:47:44 AM
My 2 cents,
Originality, body parts, condition are all relative to price. You want to pay what a car is worth. Once you buy it if you find another more to you likeing it is nice if you can sell it and at least get most of your money back. Research helps a lot but sometimes the early bird gets the best worm. It is really fun when you pay for something questionable at that price and later find you have something special. I bought my L78 at a price that a clone would be worth and was thrilled later to find out it was the real deal. It is all fun unless you pay for that Z28 only to find out later it is not a real Z28.

Sounds like a carb rebuild to me also. Having 3 cars with Holleys and getting frustrated by my own rebuilds, I found a retired drag racer in Efland NC who only does holleys part time. He was very specific about the kits he uses new more about Holleys than anyone I know. He has rebuilt several since for guys around here with great results. He also gave me a tip about (that leaky Holley). The accelerator pump gasket gets wear everytime you touch the throttle and is the most likely culprit. They are cheap and easy to install. I keep several in my shop. As I go around car shows I see cars with aluminum intakes with the orange tint under the front throttle side of the carb and I know they need one.

Hey Guys,
Being from central NC and growing up in the 60,s and 70,s I can tell you that Carolina Blue cars were not rare here. A friend of mine had a 69 Z28 in about 71 that I am sure had the factory paint. Another friend ordered a Carolina Blue 68 L78 chevelle new and was well known here. It had a black vinyl top as did a 69 or 70 L78 Nova that was well known.I also remember a 70 Monte Carlo the same colors and a 67 SS Chevelle which I think is here and still owned by the original owner if I can find him. Another friend ordered a 78 Monte Carlo Carolina Blue with a white vinyl top which he sold later to brother. Carolina fans here are serious fans and during the 70,s the color was not a strange thing to see. If I locate L. Steele and his 67 ss chevelle I will check the paint code and post it.

Check some cast dates. Block, heads ,exhaust. Might not really prove anything but looking production dates and numbers might make you feel better or worse.

I found out that Comp Cams grinds a hydraulic versun of the 454 LS6 cam. It works amd sounds great. Works great with my automatic also.
