Probably heard the owner coming and had to leave the handle/knob.

Some rebuilders use stainless steel sleeves, others use brass. What are the pros and cons of each or is there no difference?

Either is fine, IMO. You just want a good true non pitted surface and either will work. I give the nod to stainless as it is harder and will not easily nick, but it is not like you will be abusing the M.C., so either one is OK. A side note, I believe the stainless sleeve can be thinner (have never compared) so less material removed from your cylinder. Again, a moot point as long as work is done correctly, IE: machining and alignment and pressing, either will give you a new surface that won't corrode or pit or wear out.

What is the difference between The 842BV and DV?

Here's a DV pulley on my 69 Z. Apparently a service replacement. According to Jerry M's book, either one could be original. Different supplier?

On a Z? Should that not be a 3932456? I never knew why the DV either. There is something IIR, on Yenko site. Will have to do some digging.

here is link to the L78 I mentioned. Not an RS, but good detail pics. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.314452995410366.1073741836.312607635594902&type=1

Damn Darrell those pics of the engine in your L78 are pornographic... If you posted 100 detailed macro shots I would study them relentlessly.
It IS a thing of beauty!

Why not do a search (here and off site) for a L78 396/375, a more "common species"(lol). Only thing different from the L72 is the block, and radiator & air cleaner (on most) IIRC. There are plenty of good pics out there of 396's. There are some real good pics of a 16k mile original on the Yenko site recently posted.

What does the seller mean by "has the correct notches around it " ?
I believe the seller is referring to the "snout" area of the pulley is distorted on original 824BV pulleys caused by the reinforcement on the backside being pressed into place and leaving the snout "notched" (IIR octagonal) instead of round (cylindrical), because of 8 swedged places that distort the snout area. Not all GM pulleys have this feature, but a real 824 does and experience tells me that is about the "going" price for the real deal.

Are you positive that IS the #, F0810FM? Because 0310 instead of 8 would put it right in the ballpark, so to speak. See if you can get the casting date off the block, and head, while you are at it. If we get enough info, we (CRG) will figure it out.
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Stinger Hood for my 68 in Australia on: February 07, 2015, 10:45:41 PM


Also, has anyone cut out the opening at the front rather than rely on the cool air induction from the back of the hood? Those ducts are screaming "cut me free!" I reckon.


When it comes to Camaros, everything has been tried.
Sometimes disatrous results!

Moderator needs to move this to maintenance. I have changed oil without having to remove any of mentioned items. You may need a swivel socket to gain access to rear bolts. While pan is off, you should dimple the holes with a ball pean hammer to restore holes to being flat with surface. Most leaks occur from overtightening the pan. I believe spec, without looking up, is around 25 inch pounds or about what would be achieved using a 1/4 inch ratchet.

I agree with Hawk. Daven1256, you are thinking if water was coming up, as in a flood. Hawk's analogy of water dripping in makes sense to me. This reminds me of a Smokey Yunick response to modifying Big Block oiling systems. He said, Chevrolet had a team of engineers and spent countless hours and dollars developing an excellent oiling system and some engine builders come along and ruin the system, reffering to putting a High Volume pump and pumping the sump dry. There must be some sound reasoning, I figure, to why things were done a certain way. I strive to replicate what was done originally and don't try to re-engineer or over restore with the only exception of applying some extra painting of areas prone to known problem areas with hopes of keeping the car from premature deterioration (rusting) that occured from lack of painting or protecting  on original assembly IE: painting inside of rockers, bottom of inside doors and 1/4 inside, inside rear fender area and the inner subframe. Maybe this is considered over restoring to the purist, but it is bad enough to restore a car once, much less, go back and having to restore car again.

I am always interested in this kind of story, so thought I'd share: https://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoramic/this-pile-of-rust-and-dust-just-sold-for--1-9-million-171817268.html
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: BV Water Pump Pulley on: February 06, 2015, 01:40:30 PM
Thanks! Just bought one.  Smiley

Good! Hope it is a REAL one?
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: BV Water Pump Pulley on: February 06, 2015, 01:12:55 PM
YES!

Hawk, link to pic of 16k mile original l78 69:  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.314452995410366.1073741836.312607635594902&type=1#!/arone.restoration/photos/a.314452995410366.1073741836.312607635594902/314453325410333/?type=3&theater
I have understood for some time that rounded is correct, but not sure were I read that. There is much posted in various sites I am sure you have found. Looks like the car in link has round. Should have asked when you were down here, don't think I have anymore round though.
