I'd expect to find a cast crank in a '67 350/295hp.; I believe the only Camaro small-block with a forged crank was the Z/28.
4007  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Cranks and Cams on: November 29, 2005, 11:15:40 AM
I believe the cam is the same one that was used across all Chevrolet products from '67-'81 for the 300hp-level 327 and 350 engines; the "929" cam - GM#3896929 (casting #3896930). It had 195*/202* duration @ .050", and .390"/.410" lift. It's still available from GM under P/N 12364051 as a kit with cam and lifters for $100-$140 depending on where you buy it.  Smiley

No, just use new bolts and U-nuts, unless the metal is rusted away where the U-nuts clip on.

All are answered in your other post; just post your question in one forum at a time.  Smiley
4010  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 X77 code Camaro Many fact questions. on: November 24, 2005, 11:32:23 AM
The inner surfaces of the front fenders are semi-gloss black primer. X77 is base car exterior trim - no drip rail molding, wheel opening moldings, rear quarter louvers, etc. Fathom Green Z/28's had white stripes.

Those are very good pictures, is that the hidden vin by the heater core? It looks like norwood did it a little different then L.A. mine has a/c, and there isn't much firewall showing, I wonder if that would make a difference?

Not sure on 68 but in 67 LOS didn't use hidden VIN's. I beleive that 68 didn't either.


Are you sure? It was a Federal requirement on all cars.
4012  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 "double hump" heads on: November 23, 2005, 12:59:52 PM
The 291's with the boss, but not drilled/tapped, were used on '67 Corvettes from about mid-March '67 to the end of the model year (instead of 462's); the same head was used on '68 Corvettes, with the hole drilled/tapped for the temp sender. You might also try Tracy Performance - they have lots of castings.
4013  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 head rebuild on: November 22, 2005, 10:40:28 AM
I wouldn't use them - the -142 springs were designed for use with the -140 "First-Design Off-Road" cam (the over-the-counter race cam for the Trans-Am Camaros), are higher pressure and .040" larger in diameter; they were never installed in any production engine. The 3911068 springs are the correct ones for your application, and are bulletproof.

Yup, forgot about the weird AR1 situation.  Undecided
4015  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 camaro 350 SS authenticity on: November 22, 2005, 10:32:23 AM
The engine is a 350/145hp 2-barrel, made at McKinnon Industries (Canada) out of a '76 full-size, Chevelle, or Monte Carlo built at the Oshawa, Ontario assembly plant. The 3970010 block was used from '69-'79 for virtually all car and truck applications.
4016  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ride Height Measurements on: November 22, 2005, 10:04:33 AM
The only AMA-published height dimensions are ground-to-top of roof, which is 51.1", and ground-to-top of cowl, which is 36.4"; those dimensions are for 69's.

Assuming you're having new guides installed, your existing valves may be reusable if the stems don't show any wear and show proper guide clearance; if the stems are worn, aftermarket valves may be less costly than GM valves - I don't have those prices handy. The springs are still available from GM - P/N 3911068; they list for $6.70 each, jobber price $5.05, dealer cost $3.84. These springs are 80# closed and 200# open @ 1.25", and are correct for your car - you DON'T need any of the high-pressure aftermarket springs; all GM production solid-lifter small-block cams used the same grocery-getter springs as hydraulic cams did.  Smiley

Try the "Decoding" box at the top of the page (and the others as well); LOTS of information!

Blue Loctite on the ball also works.
4020  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 SMALL BLOCK QUESTIONS? on: November 19, 2005, 11:30:45 AM
All four of those blocks (especially the 010) were VERY common, and were used in virtually all passenger cars and trucks for many years; all were cast at both Flint and Tonawanda in high volume. Can't answer the SS/L-48 question specifically, but 350/300hp engines were made by the millions at both plants, and I can't imagine Tonawanda being the sole source for Camaro L-48 engines. Flint was the sole source for 302's and all Corvette small-blocks, but those were unique low-volume applications.
