Maintenance / Re: storage

I should have mentioned I use lots of drier sheets (change them out as the smell starts to go) as well, to keep the mice away, plus the car smells good too (added bonus).

Danny - yes I usually start it, let it get up to temp (and off high idle), then just run it through the gears, witout using any accelerator. It may be my OCD kicking in, but I have seen many components taken apart with rust above the lube line - I.E. Differentials and manual transmissions, that have been sitting for long periods. I always like to take the load off the springs as well, it keeps you at the specified ride height for a lot longer time (years), if you don't use your vehicle as a daily driver. JMO

I also store in a heated garage in a colder winter climate, and found I must monitor the humidity as well. I also jack the car up to relax the springs, and allow me to ocassionally start and run the vehicle through the gears to keep the oil on the appropriate parts. If your vehicle is an automatic, it also helps to keep the oil in the torque converter, as some older units tend to drain down over time, overfilling the pan, and you will have the trans oil coming out the vent, onto your garage floor. I always lower the windows a bit to keep temps and humidity levels equal as well. JMO

My 67 L-30 (610B, with wire) has an engine assy date of 0812 if you would like to update.

My '67 10B LOS L-30 has the wire clamp. FWIW

X2 on the paint under the bushing flange, and in the holes, on my '67's control arms. Just wondering if the bushings were installed after paint, and left unpainted. I noted the picture of the survivor car is missing the lock washer that goes under the end bolt (unless that changes after 67), along with what looks like paint on the fuel line.

  Are you saying you do not paint all parts at the control arms when doing a restoration?

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.
