So if I take my calipers off and pull the pads I can check out the pistons but what does the insulators look like ? Do you have a pic. thx. I was just curious why big blocks couldn't order the option if they expected to drag race them and would also undergo heavy braking.

You could only get J65 all metal drums front/rear if you had a ss or J52 disc brake non metal w/ non metal posi.  But a z28 could get J56 metal disk and metal rear. Interesting...
Could you combine 2 Rpo's and order J65 and J52 and have non metal disks and a metal drum rear as a result? thx

Hallman Central Chevrolet Inc. Co. had 8 dealerships across the country at that time. Dave Hallman Chevrolet in Pa. is a relation I believe, maybe they can help.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 67 crate engine part numbers on: January 22, 2011, 04:26:45 PM
I'm trying to find the descriptions for these 67 crate engine  part numbers and where they may be found. These are written on the dealer invoices for mine and a friends car from the same dealer.    One is p/n 3910585 , the other is 3910587. I believe they are part numbers are for complete crate engines or short blocks but we have not found them in any manuals etc. The 585 is a 427 hydraulic lifter engine, the 587 is a 427 solid lifter engine. Thx for any help locating the descriptions for these two part numbers.

Since Harrell was key in converting them for Nickey in late 66 till may 67 when it looks like he did alot of conversions for yenko, it could be possible that the list of vins for nhra might have been assembled w/ his help. Meaning maybe he knew of other  potential 427 converted camaros for other dealers and they were trying to get as many on that list to get them qualified for a certain class. Joe do you know if he had an exclusive deal to only convert yenko fleets in may-july 67. Maybe he potentially tuned or converted others like this one for JackShaw concurrently Huh  Joe does your sales invoices from Span list 15 inch wheels also? Wink

I don't see any vin lists on detroithorsepower, all I saw was your vin next to ys715 on the other site, and that was a picture of a magazine article listing them all. Here is a pic of a 67 advertisement w/ ohio dealers at the time. good luck in your search.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 124377N230691 on the Yenko vin list on: October 03, 2010, 11:56:49 AM
your vin shows up in the magazine aritcle posted on camaropacecars.com says ys 715 next to your vin I think in the article. Looks like some kind of fleet order starting w/ a late 226vin. Also looks like every time they ordered 3-5 of them the 1st couple in the group started w/ a fleet code after the dash like the pacecars. I guess it could be possilble that the fleet code was some type of option like 15inch wheels that yenko got from the factory or something but he ordered in bulk like 50 so it came w/ the fleet code on tag. If other dealers knew the order code maybe they could order an ss w/ whatever his came with and not go through him for one of his cars.  Where yours has no dash and fleet code, possibly because the dealer found a way to order just one on his own so no fleet code, there were like 5 yenko distributors on advertisements in 67 for yenkos in ohio but I don't see your dealer on there.   Maybe yenko got a list of all the SS's that got ordered w/ his options whether part of his fleet or not from chevy and later submitted it to nhra. Just a guess why yours doesn't come back to yenko or have invoices, but it does show the ys# on the other site. Good luck. Not all were converted 427s, some stayed 396s and even some were 427 hydraulic conversions w/ turbo 400s... Grin
