Not sure if you meant for this to be in the "Test Drive" section.


I have wondered this as well.  I know my uncles 69 Chevelle came with a very short Phillips #2 with a wooden handle..  I wish I had got pics of it last week but didn't..  I have this screwdriver but have not idea of its origin.  It is wooden but there isn't any print or stampings anywhere on it.  Also I would have thought the screwdriver would have been a flathead..

Interesting to see a black lid with chrome valve covers.  I always thought all lids were chrome on Camaros with open element.?.  

Mike did you say your 04B car has the same script as your 05B car?  Also is it a black lid also?

Ed is your car LOS?

Ok how about we do this to maybe keep a log.

Thanks Ed & Steve.  I'd like to see an earlier build '68 or a 67 if possible.  Also the 4 dimples on the F A I've noticed are not on the reproduction ones.  Guessing they were from an assembly process of installing it onto the base.?.  Also there is a "GM" stamped on the one I posted.  Is this consistent with the others?

68 03D L78

Maybe I should have included open element Z28 cars as well.. 
728  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Big Block Open Element Air Cleaner on: July 27, 2013, 12:26:41 AM
I have a '69 big block that was built in Nov. of '68 if that helps. I can take some pics and post when I get a chance.

Yes please do post some pics.




Ed,
This is very interesting..  What build date is your L89 car? Also the hose on the base going to the flame arrestor...  Is it original as well?  Also does anyone know of how many variations of the printing on the underside of the lid?  I'm wondering if this is a way to track the lids by year or even months..??..

Jon,
they also call out for spread port heads..  You can make them work on stock heads with adapters but not intended for that & it could cause some fitment issues with the steering box & steering components.

That wagon is extremely cool..
731  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stahl Step Headers ('69 Z28) on: July 26, 2013, 03:25:29 PM
My experiences the 1 5/8 on the stepped allows for better low end torque and once you get into the rpms the 1 3/4 allows the exhaust to move out of the header.  A full 1 3/4 you loose the low end and with the 1 5/8 you leave a little on the table in the upper rpms.  So a good stepped header is a great street car header.

'68 but I didnt think there was a difference on the BB open element air cleaner..   Huh
733  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Big Block Open Element Air Cleaner on: July 26, 2013, 12:16:06 PM
Curious if anyone has or can post up photos of an original air cleaner lid, hose to the crankcase vent and flame arrestor.  Photos of the top side and underside of the lid & base if possible.  Thanks, Darrell

This is what I was working on today..  Setting the valves and adjusting the carb.  Original owner (my uncle) car, early 90s restoration.  My father actually rebuilt the engine back then and I am the only other person to work on the car besides my father and uncle.  Super clean and well documented car.  Interesting story behind the car; he traded in a Marina Blue 67 SS Chevelle and had originally ordered a Fathom Green 69 SS Chevelle but the dealer got in this Garnet Red car from another dealer and he had them add power steering at the dealer and took it home.  Car has also been in Chuck Hanson's ACES magazine as well.  Just thought I would share.
