Side comment - Boot retaining plate (on a '69 for sure and probably other years) differs if you have a console or not.  The boot retainer plate is chrome without a console.  The console cars got black boot retainer rings.

WOW - Tilt front end and a blower!  Hard core.

No market for that.

Jek9016, My white 67 is on the home page this month. Last year I put cragars on my car 15x4 with 165R 15 on front and 15x8 reverse with 225/60R/15 on the rear. I have 4 caliper disc in front and had to use a 1/2 inch spacer for clearance. No issues with the tire size on the front but the 225's out back just don't look good to me. They don't fill the wheel well enough. I will change them to a 245/60r/15 soon. To each is his own about radial vs bias. I prefer radials because the car handles so much better. Also a good set of gas shocks really help the handling of our cars.
Stingr69 your blue Z really looks good with the Cragars.

Richard

Richard,
Thanks for the compliment.

I also have a set of (4) 245/60/15's on the stock 15x7 rally wheels and they fill out the wheel wells just fine.  Looks a little more "Chunky" if you know what I mean. Fronts were VERY close to the fender extension so it needed a bit of a massage to fit without rubbing.

-Mark.

Here is a better side view.  26.0" Dia and 26.1" Dia.

Not exactly what you were looking for I know but maybe it will help.  After much deliberation on my '69, I went with Firestone Indy 500 white letter radials - 215/65/15 on a 7" Cragar for the front with 235/60/15 on a 8" Cragar on the rear. Looks perfect to my eyes and the tire heights are very close.  These sizes may convert to old school sizes.

The breather side is where the external engine lubrication comes from.  :~D

You can set this system up like a later GM design and it will work great.  Breather intake from a small filter mounted inside the air cleaner down to the passenger side valve cover baffle.  PCV valve goes on the opposite valve cover baffle then hooks up to manifold vacuum.  Works like it was intended and you don't get a lot of oil drizzle all over the engine.  I have tried everything and this is what works (best).

Looks good. Use it.  Same as ones used on C3 Corvettes.

Hey guys,   Is there any available information to track a CE block by its production number? I have came across one that has my interest peaked due to its casting # and date code that could fall in line with use in my 67 SS 350.

There is no way to trace it.  If you want to put it in, you can.

Original owner paid 6 months of payments only.  I would love to buy a car and make only 6 months of payments and still get to own it 42 years later.  What a deal!  Not going to happen.

The insurance company paid off the bank for the whole car.  Who do you think should own the rights to it now?  Just sayin. Smiley

Pad looks aged as if it was rusted.  No expert here, but that stamp looks to be a little too fresh and crisp on an otherwise OLD looking surface . JMO

Does anyone have any input as to the placement of the grille emblem ?

Looks Perfect to me.

Hurst will do it.  Download the form and fill it out. :~D  Mine came out nice.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Wheel opening mouldings on: January 30, 2015, 11:33:51 AM
Rear wheel well moldings have small holes for the attaching screws.  The screws should be included. 

The fronts did not need screws due to the large fender bolts holding them in place.

I used Apple Hydraulics to re-sleeve my master cylinder.  Pics are in the master cylinder cover thread. Very nice work.
