Originality / Re: 0 rocker arms BIG or small 0 ? differences?

It's always best to keep mated running parts together, as they develop wear patterns at the mating surfaces, such as a flat tappett does at the cam lobe, (which should not be mixed up, if you intend to reuse).  In the case of the pivots for the rockers, it's note quite so important, as long as there are no signs of discoloring, scratches / scoring, which you can "catch with your fingernail".

The 1107320 starter was used in '65 Corvette small block applications, and yours appears to be produced June 24 of 1964. I would try the GM parts wiki for the complete application usage, while the second starter appears to be built in 66, September 8th, not sure of application, others will chime in soon.

 I found one for the '68 327 / 350 (it's different than the '67). The part your looking for seems to be associated with'67 only (Camaro and Chevelle) 327 and 350's. Good luck in your search, as I don't believe they repro it.

Yes, the '67 sb V8 has such a part, I would be happy to supply a picture if you need it, as the GM Parts WIKI has an incorrect drawing of the part. I don't know where to get one, but will look around to see if I have an additional one.

The pic shows the distributor in place, and I believe it was shipped to the dress line as such, but John will give you the definative answer on that.

I believe you may have removed the retainer in the bearing itself, as stated earlier, there are no snap rings to hold the bearing into the housing. JMO

I believe Chick is showing the stud at the carb's center, while the other studs are for attaching the carb to the manifold. JMO

Restoration / Re: 67 327 oil filter bypass valve
« on: January 06, 2013, 08:49:15 PM »
  It simply allows the oil to bypass the filter if it becomes restricted / plugged, in an effort to minimize catastrophic engine damages. There is only a single spring loaded disc that becomes dislodged from excess pressure, allowing the oil to bypass the filter cartridge. I've never seen one go bad, as it's a very simple design, with one moving part. The spin on oil filter adapters usually do not have this valve, as the filter has the bypass incorporated in it, while the old style paper cartridge does not have this provision. Many people use the spin on filter adapters, and plug the port for a check valve, when using a high pressure / high volume oil pump. Hope this helps to explain the function of the check valve.

Restoration / Re: Rear Wheel Well Plugs - Before or After Undercoating?
« on: December 19, 2012, 08:25:47 PM »
Not sure on the '68s, but my '67 showed no evidence of undercoating at the plugs. That's not to say it didn't come off in the last 40+ years, but I see no indications of having been sprayed. JMO

General Discussion / Re: where can I send my water pump to get rebuilt
« on: December 17, 2012, 02:19:59 AM »
I purchased a rebuild kit from Zip's (corvette repro site), and rebuilt mine. As mentioned, be sure of your dimensions before starting the rebuild, instructions come with the kit, as well as the special arbor for use in the press. Good luck if you go this route.

  I also have an early production convertible (10B), with the custom interior, powerglide, power top, etc., much like yours (different color), but manufactured at LOS, for the US market. You will find this site invaluable when questions arise - feel free to PM myself if I can be of any technical assistance. Enjoy your restoration.


Restoration / Re: Twisted doors.
« on: November 16, 2012, 04:09:31 PM »
My '67 has the same condition (again with original doors, that have not been removed), and after reading about this condition, I've been led to believe they need to be "adjusted" by removing the interior panels, inserting a suitable piece of wood and "tweaking" them. If you learn of an alternate method, I would be interested, as I haven't been inclined to do this, as of yet.

  My early build '67 convertible with DeLuxe trim also has the "insulator" as shown in previous pictures (not like the last post of a '68).
