The SBC block with casting number ending in "512" was mainly used for service engines (think CE) but has been seen in some limited use in production vehicles.

So yes, which "512" block do you have?

Let's not throw people under the bus so fast. :)

If you have specific questions on the tag - post a photo.

Is the block the correct one for your car? Does the partial VIN match your VIN?

Post a pic of that too if you can.

Also I may split this out into a separate thread.

I am not where I can look it up right now. I will respond this evening unless someone answers before that.

From memory, yes it is somewhat bluish.

Until then, read this.

Do I see something stamped right of the DZ?

Can you post a larger pic of the pad and the partial VIN stamp area?

I don't have an answer for you but in my mind it's just a pulley. I would run it.

Thanks for posting. I am pretty sure the casting date has to be K 3 7.

Kurt wrote the seat belt report. I will ask him.

I read the report and it seems they would work.

But it have never used 69 belts in a 68 - and I don't know anyone that has.

So did you buy the L78?

Tough to say on that car. Crossmember and heater box COULD be from another car. Not saying they are but could be.

12 bolt is from a Chevelle.

If Jerry has one, give him a call.

But cross rams CAN be difficult to get the carbs exactly right at low rpms. They were designed to pretty much run above 3000.  Some guys can get them to run fine though.

In most cases you won't need anything more than 850 cfm. The stock 4 barrel carb would flow about 800.

I am curious why do you want to run a cross ram?

Original Cars and Details / Re: Amazing 69 Z/28 Survivor

I think 697 total Pontiac Trans Ams in 1969.   689 coupes and 8 convertibles.
Most coupes were Ram Air HO. 55 coupes and all 8 convertibles had Ram Air IV.
Getting a little off topic though.
Just correcting the record. None of the 8 convertibles were RAIV's they were all RAIII . There were 55 RAIV coupes 46 manual and 6 automatic built.
I will check my sources again.  Notice when I posted I said "I think".   ;)    For the record in your post 46 + 6 = 52.    :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
You were correct.  Thanks for the post.  None of the convertibles were Ram Air IV.  Sorry about that.

Looks like for the Ram Air IV coupes, there were 46 with manual transmission and 9 with an automatic transmission.  That's 55.   :)

Steve did not want to hijack the thread but did want to add this info.

All Trans-am were equipped with the special code 611 Ram Air package.  With that being the case the engine options were either RA III or RA IV. Basically the 400HO + Ram Air package 611= RA III.
