wtexz10,  are you talking of 700R4, or 200R4, when you say you needed to modify the tunnel?
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Swapping a 700R 4 into a 67 on: August 16, 2014, 01:46:50 AM
Thanks for for all the input guys.  Does the 200R4 use a similar relay to the 700R4?

Yes, I already know I need to have a shorter Driveshaft, and a different Crossmember.  I am concerned about modifying the Trans. Tunnel.

  i have been considering swapping a 700 R 4 Trans. into my 67.  It will be bolted behind my original 327 engine now pushing 400 hp.  I now have a "built" TH 350 in there, backed by a 4:11 Posi rear-end.  Looking for a little better Gas mileage, and lower RPM's on the road.  Many people have told me this would be a great combo.  My question is; I just heard that I may have to do some modifying to the Trans Tunnel to get it to fit.  Is this right???  I really don't like the idea of doing that.

Why do we have to take it so personal when someone gives their "opinion" as to whether or not something is legit?  I started out on this site quoting Colvin, saying I had a rare DZ block casting # and really thought I had something.  Then it was divulged that it wasn't so rare at all and Colvin kind of jumped the gun.  Info comes and changes things.  At first I thought screw you guys, you don't know what you're talking about.  Then I had a 480 dist. from a 69 DZ engine that was in my 68 and the engine was put in there 35 years ago.  The experts said the 480 was a restamp.  I could try to justify it all day long as being there before anyone would want or need to restamp something,  But the consensous of experts was that it is a restamp, so there is nothing short of me having a video of the dist. being made that is going to change what the experts say, so I have to live with it and am selling it on the basis and price of being a restamp.  Am I happy that this was the outcome? No.  But I have to accept the reality of things or be bitter and lash out.  I would rather not be bitter, so it's a choice of accepting reality.  I do not take it personal. 

Ed I wish you would reconsider.
X2 , I wish you would reconsider.  You have added a lot of good input here.  I also ran into some input here that didn't agree with what I believed, and still do, to be original parts(seatbelts).  I cleaned them up and used them anyhow, and let the subject drop.  My car is not a "high-dollar" car anyhow, so how important is it?

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Red Line tyre measurements 68 SS RPO-PW8 on: June 09, 2014, 02:41:01 PM
3/8 was the number that always stuck in my head...
I agree with 3/8 in., at least that's what they advertise them as.  As for the measurement from the Bead to the Red stripe, I think that varies with the size of tire.  Maybe even brand of tire.

Got my Report today.  Not the news I was hoping for, just added another piece to the puzzle.
What was the news, Mike?

Mike
Mike;  Zepelak Chevrolet Inc.,  Elmhurst, IL.  We thought it was sold at Pela Chevrolet in Rock City, IL. as there was a dealer sticker on the back.  Maybe it was resold there as a used car at some point.  I did another thread here seeking some info.;

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Any Chicago area members heard of Zepelak Chevrolet Inc. in Elmhurst on: June 03, 2014, 03:15:42 PM
This is all the info. I have been able to find so far. 
A:  Zepelak’s Chevrolet opened on Roosevelt Road, ˝ mile west of York Street in July 1963.  A full-page advertisement in the Elmhurst Press (July 18, 1963) urged readers to “See Us At The Newest – The Largest – The Most Beautiful – The Greatest Chevrolet Dealership…ZEPELAK’S".
                         Any help would be greatly appreciated!   Thanks!
