Don't forget to check out Coker tires.

Diamond back redline radials for me soon...

What size are you running.

I will be going with 205/70/R14
47  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: "Hot Slot" equipped cast iron intake manifold modifications.. on: April 08, 2013, 03:39:25 PM
I plan to plug hot slot holes with steel plugs and remove heat riser flapper (doesn't get too cold here in southern California).  i will be leaving the riser body in place for that original look.

Do I still need to use the stainless steel baffle underneath the gasket?

Also, the guy that rebuilt my quadrajet included what looks to be a spacer with the rebuild.  It's about 1/4" thick and seems to be made of plastic.  Do I need this as well?

You must have removed the headers you mentioned earlier if you're going to use the heat riser valve; there's no way to use the heat riser valve with headers.

The stainless baffle goes under the carb on an L-35, on top of the gasket, as shown in the Assembly Manual.

Yep, never installed the headers and just kept the manifolds. Thanks for your help...

Need some help guys.  I am at the point now where i will be putting my quadrajet back onto my iron manifold.  After reading about the hot slot problems I am scared of a fire!

51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Were chrome engine parts an option for 67? on: April 03, 2013, 08:07:24 PM
Just continuing my project of putting my car back to as original as possible.  Was is possible that the following list of parts were available in chrome for '67?

Open element air cleaner
Oil fill tube
Upper alternator bracket
Timing chain cover & timing tab
Chevrolet script valve covers


I am sure the air filter is not original since my car was AIR equipped but what about the other parts?

My car is an 01C 1967 rs/ss L48 MV block with AIR. Thanks,

Joe
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Lubing after sitting for a year? on: April 01, 2013, 01:31:51 PM
This the current state of my car.  It has been sitting for a year while i knocked out a bunch of projects on it.  Since it has been sitting it looks dry in the valley and rockers.  Before I install the intake can I oil up these areas as a precaution? If so where exactly?

53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: What are these marks on the harmonic balancer? on: March 28, 2013, 04:44:41 PM
Ok, then do i just set those marks to 0 and that is TDC or would i need to still find TDC?
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / What are these marks on the harmonic balancer? on: March 28, 2013, 02:06:20 PM
Trying to find TDC on my 350 (without a piston stop tool) and found these paint marks.  If I rotate these to 0 will that be TDC?  If not, what are they for?

57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1967 L48 spark plug wire stands on: March 23, 2013, 12:59:26 PM

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: How to assemble oil line to block fitting? on: March 13, 2013, 08:51:38 PM
Thanks rszmjt, but now a question about that Corvette Central line.  Is that line long enough to reach from the console gauge through the firewall grommet to the engine block?   

Yes and its Black Plastic as per original, at least the last time I got 1 it was.

Think I am going to order that and give it a try. Thanks

Is any one able to tell me if the line and fittings need two of the small barrel sleeves (one on each end)?  My block fitting came with only one of these sleeves. If only one is needed what side does it go on (block or gauge)? 

I believe you do need the "barrel" piece with the splits shown above, that slides up the tubing at both ends.  That's where you get the compression.  However, I've never had mine apart at the gauge.  Check UPC U17 in the AIM, it might show that level of detail.  If you only have one, check your gauge.  Someone may have placed it inside the nut for safekeeping, and then screwed the nut back onto the nipple on the rear of the gauge. 


this is one solid piece with no splits (tiny barrel sleeve in pic)
