1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: what carb/intake/air filter combo will fit under the SS hood of '67 with 396ci e on: April 20, 2015, 02:00:41 PM
069 & 163 are GM aluminum intakes for rectangle port heads and Im assuming you dont have since you have a cast iron intake. I would stick with what you have and swap the gear out for a 3.42 or 3.55 and that will help with gas mileage..  If you are dead set on swapping intake and carb just go with a edelbrock or weiand intake (aftermarket aluminum) with a 600cfm 4160 carb which will also help in mileage but you will loose top end but gain bottom end torque with a smaller carb..  

Ok there's my $0.02

Holley (same as a Weiand.  Same company) intake with 780 Holley and open element air cleaner with SS hood.  No issues but I am not running insulation.  For the record, my fathers 68 L78 insulation rubbed the air cleaner and eventually wore a hole in it so he pulled it because it would suck the insulation around the air cleaner at WOT..  I would venture to bet most if not all had the same issue when new or a year or 2 old.

But there is still a long way to go..

Not sure how accurate this is but this is what I have been told over the years.  GM always shutdowns during the July time frame (and still do).  Since there were other cars that were built at NOR & LOS along with the stamping dies discovered being incorrect for the 70 model they had to back pedal due to the led time to have another die made causing the lengthening of the 69 production life..  Im sure this caused suppliers to have to build back up enough units to cover the extended run which in turned caused a slowing of production during August.

Hopefully someone can confirm whether or not this is the truth.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Crager SS wheel & tire size question on: April 01, 2015, 10:37:41 AM
4 piston calipers I assume??

Here are a set of 14 x 6 reverse and 14 x 10 on my (father's) 68 with 4 piston calipers.  He ground the calipers to get them to clear but you could use a 5/16" spacer to make them work in the front. F70 up front and M50 on the rear.




Some wheels and tires on my 67.  Single piston calipers and they clear just fine.  These are mid 70's vintage Cragars..  I can get you the backspacing later this week.

I have the base from the L78 but my father broke the jacking mech back many years ago (used to break down tires off rims using the jack and car bumper) and replaced it with one from a 70 or 71 car IIRC..

I would like to trailer the L78 to the show in Nov but will have to wait and see how it goes..
