Danny;
Whoa! You start into that bottom end you are opening another can of worms here.
Just my opinion but if it ain't broke why fix it? Is something leaking?
I couldn't find a good new/original high pressure oil-pump. So It required a new pump/pick-up and so on.
Just say'n!











X2 and never, never use a high volume pump.

here is a candidate KERR: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-X11-SS-1969-camaro-x-11-solid-builder-with-factory-fold-down-rear-seat-/121444494422?forcerrptr=true&hash=item1c46a7ec56&item=121444494422&pt=US_Cars_Trucks#ht_1184wt_1312
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 SS 350 intake manifold on: September 23, 2014, 09:51:17 PM
I have an intake from a 1966 327.  Part number 3905393.  I am not that interested in a correctly numbered intake at this point.  The one I have looks identical to the 3919803.  Would it work/perform okay? 
As long as it is the same configuration, meaning same carb holes size, it should work fine and is essentially the same as the noted correct intake. It may be a 1966 date, but it's application is for a 67 327 and 350 for Q-jet. If it is, in fact, a 66 intake, it would be for a Carter AFB, so make sure the secondary holes are larger as a Q-jet would be.
The casting says it is 67 Q-jet and the Q-jet was introduced in 1967.

"Can anyone recomend a good well known intake gasket set.?"

I like Fel-Pro (the blue one) GM also. I may even have a vintage GM set from BITD...will have to dig.

"But does the intake need to be resufaced a couple thousandths? Will that change the angle of the "seating" area's. Or should I just scotchbrite pad/steel wool it? ... Danny "

Not even sure if you are asking about the mating surfaces or overall appearance. Personally, I would not even clean the exposed area of intake unless it means raking off some crumbly stuff down in crevices, which may not exist now if you used as much carb spray as you claim. Careful with that spray! An errant spark off the dizzy or backfire and you will be roasting hot dogs and calling the Fire Dept. and Insurance adjuster. VERY FLAMABLE!


Let's keep it simple Danny. You want to have a flat true surface were the intake mates to the head. Lay a straight edge across the length after cleaning off gasket etc...
You could use a feeler like .003 and see if it goes between intake and straight edge. or you can just hold the intake at an angle and see if you can see daylight between S-edge and intake surface.
If warpage detected, then a flat medium coarse file, longer the better can be used lengthwise to intake surface to true up surface. In absense of a file or in addition, use a scrap 2x4 block and coarse paper, like 180 grit. May take some elbow grease, so take your time and take some Advil.

It really looks odd.  It makes me wonder what else is wrong with the car.

Jim
That vin should be 12A or 12B. Probably too early for the cowl hood. It also has no tach,console, or gauges. I can,t remember when the tach became a requirement.

Jim69: This is why I (we) try and get the details right in my (our) restoration, so someone does not say what you did and wonder what else is wrong or even if it is what is claimed. I do not want someone in the know to question the authenticity.

Kelley: With VIN Kurt provided, it should be a 12C, I believe. Tach was not required until way later in production and, yes, too early for ZL2, IMO. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=6281.0  some other posts are useful if you search on here.

Did originals have the through holes for the screws (like the ones Darrell pictured) or were there studs?

I think the holes are correct with screws, not absolutey sure. They are factory correct covers. Two would indicate stereo, I believe. If only one, it would be U69 RH side only.

Outstanding and neat story Scott. Have all known 69 P-car Trim Tags been compared? I would think the body numbers would be sequential being ordered at the same time.

We are still talking about distributors right?
I think we are moving on to a subject I really have expertise in...finally!

Guessing by the date, it is a Los car?
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 X77 garage/barn find on: September 11, 2014, 08:31:46 PM
and what's the 9A, B, or C stand for?

9=1969 year A=jan,B=Feb...and so on. That is what he (we) want to see. Get your camera out again and remove the capacitor.
