Did the 69 BB and SB use this drain plug ?

Yes. The later drain plug (smaller 9/16" hex, flanged head) showed up in '70 or '71, I believe.

No such thing as a "big-block" 350. Gen I small-blocks got as large as 400 cu. in., and the smallest Mark IV big-block was a 366 tall-deck block, used only in HD trucks (and useless as a performance engine).

john.
since i have to remove the heads anyway, i was thinking of swapping cams while im at it. do you know of another cam that will work better than the stock cam ? considering that im keeping my manifolds and smog.

ive never abeen a fan of the lt1. but people seem to like it. aside from the LT1 cam. what might you suggest? or would you leave it alone?
thanks
aaron

The factory LT-1 cam will produce about 20% more low-to mid-range torque than the "30-30" and gives up very little at high rpm. The beauty of the factory cams (other than the -140) is that they all use the same grocery-getter stock valve springs (3901168) as grandma's 307, and the stock valvetrain is proven bulletproof; no need for "Godzilla" valve springs, no problems with wiped cam lobes.

Oops - only used in the Chevelle in '65.  Smiley

The cross-ram setups are great for "bling" at cruise-ins, but are very difficult to tune for street use, especially with the -140 cam, and have even less low to mid-range torque than a stock DZ with the "30-30" cam, which doesn't have much to start with. Seems like a LOT of money for "show-off" points, especially with the driveability compromises it brings. To each his own, but I wouldn't bother.
3711  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Wipers Don't Work on: June 21, 2006, 02:47:17 PM
The motor has to be grounded, and so does the switch - the motor works by grounding the circuit through the switch to the lower instrument panel reinforcement. There's a stamped sheet metal ground plate shared by the headlight switch and the wiper switch, with a leg at the bottom that's screwed to the lower reinforcement, and a pigtail wire - if that plate or wire is broken, missing, or has the screw at the bottom missing, the wipers won't work. That plate is shown in the Assembly Manual in UPC 1, sheet B2, View "B", and in UPC 12, Sheet B2.

I assume you're talking about the metering valve (the proportioning valve is down on the subframe); photo below shows my (original) metering valve, with the tab on the mounting bracket below the mounting ear on the (original) master cylinder.

They're 7/8" across the hex flats, 1/4" thick, and "A", "L", "TR", and "M" were used interchangeably.

If you go to the Tire Rack site (www.tirerack.com), they have a tire marking/sidewall decoding page.
3715  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Paint on: June 21, 2006, 11:11:39 AM
The bellhousing was on the engine when it was painted, and normally shows at least overspray on the forward 3"-4", although coverage varied greatly.

Why would you want "original" tires? They're only safe for rolling on and off a trailer. Roll Eyes
3717  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Can a Saginaw 4 speed be built to handle Big Block horse power? on: June 21, 2006, 11:05:28 AM
It's out of a late Vega or Monza.
3718  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anyone know if this is a 327? I have #'s off the block................... on: June 21, 2006, 11:02:01 AM
That block was cast at Tonawanda on November 9, 1961, so it's out of a '62 passenger car, Chevelle, or truck. You don't have to pull the heads to see the stampings on the block deck - it's right in front of the passenger side cylinder head, out in the open. If the heads are the same vintage as the block, they'll have either 1.72" or 1.94" valves, and the head casting numbers and dates are visible if you pull the valve covers.

Noted John.. I have no plan's on selling this car anytime soon,I enjoy the hobby too much.Was just a hypathectical question.By the way John You ever make it to woodward on a friday or saturday night? Love to meet up sometime

GM didn't manufacture their clutches - they bought them from an outside supplier.
