"Dimple" rods weren't used on the 67 350, but to answer your question, yes you can overdo anything.

Ed


Sorry Ed but 1967 Camaro 350 rods WERE Dimple, they are very unique in that they used the 11/32 bolt same as the small journal rod, and to clarify they had a raised dimple just under the wristpin area on both side, same as a L78 rod. in the last 40 years I have taken apart and overhauled 3 known original SS350 Camaro engines and they all had them. Very hard to find rods and only used in 1967.
Very interesting - does anyone have some pics of these? I've been playing with camaros since late 70's and I'm still getting educated

Gary the plastic line is avaialable at Ricks  pn# CG-15 but you will still need the fitting and tube to install with this block fitting from what it appears to me. I dont believe the ends on this line kit are correct for the OE block fitting. you would need to cut one end off and add the two earlier listed parts - coorect me if I'm wrong

I have a 68 Muncie M20 and the cover bolts all have a letter L on the head seems to be common, the taillhousing bolts seems to be marked SBC

may look at this thread I was trying to determine what was original for my car

good stuff guys thanks !

The plastic line will work with a nut replacement, but it needs the internal line sleeve per the manufacturer.
The nut/cone pinches down on the line.
OK that makes sense now, thanks!

I am missing this item, if anyone has a spare pm please
OK I have this fitting now and has a bit of the old brass hardline and my car has a black plastic line to the guage that I thought was OE, is this correct? I have doubts that this will work now or not. I know the small flare nut isnt reuseable but will a new one work with the plastic line?

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1969 radio delete plate and speaker carboard on: September 06, 2013, 09:55:08 AM
I have added a late model radio and installed it in the glove box and was planning on adding a radio delete plate in place of the AM radio. My car has the woodgrain accents and the detete plate I have is just black plastic, would an original have the woodgrain? and even if not I would like to add it so it matches the driver side. also does anyone have pictures of the speaker blockoff cardboard and installed?  thoughts?

I posted these part numbers for the "B28" vacuum advance unit before, but I can't locate the post; ALL vacuum advance units are manufactured exclusively by Standard Motor Products, who sells them to branding wholesalers who re-box them with their own part numbers (but ALL are stamped by SMP with "B"-codes, which define their characteristics).

"B28" Vacuum Advance Units (start at 4" Hg., finish at 8" Hg.):

GM #88924985
AC-Delco #D1312C
Airtex #4V1053
BWD #V329
Standard #VC-177
Wells #DV1810
Niehoff #DR-305
Car Quest #57-7537
NAPA/Echlin #VC-1810
John I have searched and searched for those list of numbers you have compiled but they all lead to dead ends -Discontinued probably very few being sold these days so...see my replies listed in thread above,  the Carquest was all I could fine and was - get them while you can! I now have 2 B28 spares

These are the blades you can get from NAPA for about $9. They have the refills for about $5 a pair which I haven't got before. I may pick up a set to see what they look like. These blades certainly aren't assembly line correct but look and work great on my drivers.

John
OK not assy line correct but do the look close enough for a driver?

Authentic Firestone Wide Oval White Letter Tires? the Hugger vert I used to own had a white interior I like green but not that combo

I agree its a GM issue that age does not help- voltage drop to the headlights - too much resistance
