I always deburr casting flash in the drainbacks and paint the interior cast surfaces...

If you clean your block well, you can use 'rustoleum' (buy a quart size can and brush it on)..  I like black, as it will show 'silvery' on disassembly if there's every been metal in the oil...

Your other pulleys (alternator, WP, smog) should line up with the outermost crank groove (see John Z's post), so actually your crank pulley is too far away from your engine for that to happen... and *the crank pulley* needs to go back towards the engine (per the photos)..  Only your PS pulley should line up with the groove closest to the engine.   

I'd suggest making sure your outer groove of the crank pulley first lines up with the water pump pulley, and then make everything else lines up appropriately after that.

And there is also the possibility that the harmonic damper is not fully seated on the crankshaft...?

weren't some smog pulleys 'phosphated'?   I think Jerry's book also says that...??   


My 06A Z28 smog pulley is phosphated, its original
Thanks.  Smiley   I'm unsure why they did them two ways (two suppliers)?  but I thought I'd seen a number of them phosphated (although all the other pulleys were painted).

Ed,
I was in the Knoxville, TN area this weekend, so I called the number and spoke to the seller.  He is actually in Knox County, KY, so I was not able to visit or photo the tags, nor would he tell me the VIN.   
He told me he has only the Trim Tag and the VIN plate from the dash, that he took from a car long ago (car now long gone).. don't they all say that? 
He wants $3000 for the tags, and informed me that use of these tags on a dynacorn body or another body would increase the value of the restored car by 3X.

PS. You do have the BDY No from the ad, so maybe with that you can track what happens to it in the future..

seller says there original?
No, not from the factory (unless you have one of those very rare 302's that GM prepared for special high performance use in racing.. Smiley       (tongue in cheek)..
The screens are typically installed by 'racers' after grinding out the flash that usually is around oil drainback opernings to prevent chunks of metal from finding their way back in the oilpan and possibly doing more damage.

John,

I appreciate very much your reply, as it helps to explain why I've never found any printed info on the different suspension rates..

thanks John.      so there is no need to wish/hope.. or look.  Smiley
1584  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Anyone close? on: May 23, 2013, 11:13:10 PM
I'll be going thru or near to Knoxville this weekend..  I'll give them a call and try...
1585  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Removing Harmonic Balancer on: May 23, 2013, 11:07:25 PM
Keep using the puller....  maybe the bolts you used on the puller are too long and it isn't giving you enough travel??...

Dave,
for 'pure enjoyment' of your car, your plan is best...  Smiley
but you're going to enjoy driving it so much, you'd better build up your gasoline fund..  Smiley

Your protecto plate lists 'door edge guards'Huh  that surprises me.... but I don't know much about '67 PTP...
1589  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Where to look for build sheet on very original 67 on: May 22, 2013, 01:45:24 PM
John,

that leaves the question:
'Is there ANYWHERE on a Norwood car where there *might* be an accidentallly tucked build sheet??"

Kelley,

That is consistent with my memory from when there were hundreds of these cars running around on the street..  Smiley
