Will be harder to do but you can turn the flywheel by hand or by the crank bolt if it has one. Remove spark plugs .

If the trans. is out of the car and in 1st gear count the number of turns the input shaft makes for 1 revolution of the output shaft. Example 2 and 1/2 turns input shaft and 1 turn output shaft = 2.54:1. This is ball park but close enough.

Paul,
Do you have the 2.85:1 or 2.54:1 first gear? Your side cover 3919385 (3919365 ?) is  2nd. design.
Thanks.
Bob

Paul,
Could you verify the main case casting # for me. I have it on file as 3859986 but it could be 3858986. Also have 3858992 as the side cover but it could be 3919365, your help would be appreciated.

Are you sure the 3 speed Saginaw came with a stabilizer rod? The 1967 Chassis Service Manual has picture on page 7-7 and it does not have the rod but on page 7-15 it shows HD 3 speed BW and it has the rod. Also shows back up sw. on trans on page 12-19 fig. 30.

67-68 junction block and brackets are the same but 2 different hoses are listed, 68 longer because of multi leafs.

It can only be original once and I've finally admitted that to myself... mine is getting a new floor pan and full quarters will replace the 80% quarters put on back in the 80s. It will never be a surivivor again because nature wasn't stopped a long time ago. The only things now that I don't want touched are the X66 crayon mark and the trim tag. Everything else I want blasted, prepped, primed and painted as correctly as I can afford. I only want to do this once and I don't want to fool myself into thinking that original is better than protected from future rust/rot.

I just checked several shops in the Jax. Fl. area and they all said they would not hot dip gal. gas tanks  because of the high temperatures involved in the process. The only way to get the spangled finish we are looking for is with the hot dipped process, so I guess I will soda blast my tank and follow up with 4-0 steel wool and a coat of clear.
If anyone finds a shop that will hot dip tanks I would like to know.

Click on red CRG square on top right  of this page, click CRG reports. read J56 report to see what year pistons you have. You will need to know what year your pistons are as they are year specific.

Are pistons pre-67 or 67 style.

Could be the flare one the high pressure hose is damaged or the seat where the HP hose is secured.  Could be the seal under the nut, between the pump and the can.
Be warned that replacement hoses are not correct and power steering pump cans are date coded.

I am curious about the pistons you acquired. Does the face of the piston have a threaded hole for the insulator to be mounted?

Don,
Your application code is C.    Should be 69 C and assembly date.      Assembly date for 69 started the 1st day of calendar year 68.     Chevelle also carries the same code.

George,
Great find. You have no idea how many restored 1st gens. that do not have sleeves on there P/S hoses.
Looking at the markings on your P/S hose is there any more markings after the USR - ? Strange that it ends in an - .
What color and size is the lettering.
Do you have any markings on the return hose?
Again, great find. Grin
Bob
