Restoration / 67 327 motor restart
« on: August 20, 2013, 06:47:40 PM »
Q: I'm working thru the external mechanicals (fluids, hoses, rad cleaning, etc) of my L30/M20 that was in storage for 28 years. Have it running good but now thinking - should I consider doing anthing with the oil pump?(has good pressure on the gauge). What else should I consider? Running good like I said- but I've been taking it easy & running for a few minutes to maybe 10-15 minutes at a time. No rush - would like to drive a little as i put together a restoration plan. Thanks

Restoration / 67 Brake Master Cylinder
« on: August 07, 2013, 01:48:18 AM »
Just removed the master cylinder on my '67 RS (all drum). Getting ready to install a new unit which came with the push rod boot. However, there is a cylinder-to-firewall gasket (rubber). None of the after maket rebuild kits, new, or remanufactured units seems to have this and I can't seem to locate one by itself? Suggestions :-\

Decoding/Numbers / '67 Steel Wheels - L30/M20
« on: August 03, 2013, 02:26:23 AM »
Question for the group regarding the codes on my steel wheels:
I have a  '67RS (L30/M20) with a build of 11A  - codes show on the outer ring as 26 11 6 (26th day of Nov. 1966)  Letters next to the valve are FC.

Referencing CRG under the chassis>wheels>:
"Most wheels are dated as shown below in the table and the picture. 67 and 68 FC coded wheels are stamped with an alternate date format: ddmmy (day, month, year), stamped on the rim lip but not next to the valve stem"

Question I have is the reference table states FC wheels as being an SS item for '67.  I am certain this is a early production L30/M20 non SS. I have no reason to believe these are not orig. and belong with the car (rest of the car is matching #'s) The  26 11 6 stamp date is little off (a couple weeks) from a 11A build - but very close

Do these codes make sense? Would the factory have put FC / SS wheels on a non SS? Special exception for a L30/M20? Dealer mod?

No tach, gauges, or PS on the POP. Only items listed are a.m. radio, telescoping antenna, folding rear seat, and single rear speaker - all of which the car has.

Here's a few pictures as found after 28 years in storage. Haven't done much other than getting her running and decoding everthing. As mentioned earlier - really bad paint job from the 80's (to include missing trim)
p.s. - noticed when I was taking the pictures that the rear tag frame is from the orig. dealership - Ed Taylor Chevrolet in San Diego. Kinda cool.

Restoration / 67 RS rear shock mounts
« on: July 24, 2013, 09:27:47 PM »
Ok - one of the top 3 items on my restoration list (just acquired '67  RS) is the rear shock mounts. Balance of car is great (floors, quarters, etc) but the area near the rear mounts is rusted thru. This follows the curvature of the wheel well for about 12 inches. Distance into the actual trunk pan is only 1-2 inches. I see patch panels the would fit nicely from the trunk side.... But  I see some reinforcements from underneath that are sandwiched under the sheet metal where the shock punches thru - can these be had also? Suggestions and experiences? Thanks

My bad there on the build year.  Yes.  My '67 is a 10/11 - '66 build car.

Thanks all for the comments. Seems this car codes out to is a true <early> L30/M20 car. I finally got to cleaning the rear end and the code there is PA1026G - which also matches the POP as an early 10 bolt along with the engine code and Saginaw trans. I also discoverd it has the dealer installed <70/71 recall> torq cable attached - so another check in the right column. One outstanding item seems be with the power steering. This car has power steering - but no code N40 on the POP. It also has the factory gauges. I'm pretty sure the gauges were an easy dealer add, but what about the power steering? Julian date in the steering box reads 251^6 (251 st day of '66) - which is right in the range of the trans and rear end build date (and prior to the build date of the car which was 11A. ??

Decoding/Numbers / 1967 RS
« on: July 18, 2013, 03:22:06 AM »
Hello All,
First posting here and I'd like to thank CRG upfront for a FANTASTIC site. I can't imagine the amount of effort and resources that has gone into all this information!
With that said - here's what I have:
I just purchased a 1967 RS that was in a garage for 28 years (Lic. plates & inspec. sticker are from 1985)
I have the protecto plate/book and all the registrations from 1967-1985 (from the orig. owner) Car looks to be very orig. with exception of what looks like a skim cote of body filller and repaint that is maybe 30 years old (paint quality is pretty bad)
Trying to determine if this is a true L30/M20 car?
I think I've decoded everything except the rear end which has a 10 bolt cover and multi-leaf springs (I think this may be one of the few mod's. no trac bar or single leaf)
Engine is stamped T1007ML and matches the POP (327/275)
Bock is stamped 3903352
4 speed trans case is stamped R7R24 and matches the POP. Shifter has had a Hurst upgrade.
Cowl tag ties back to what the car is as it sits and matches the POP (Bolero Red, Black buckets, AM radio, etc.)
POP shows the trans and engine builds from 10/67 with a car build of 11/67 - so that looks good too.

My question comes back to the the cowl tag which in the lower left corner does not show a "4P"?
This is the only item that does not seem to tie into what I've read on the L30/M20 cars

Its pretty much untouched under the hood - lots of scale but runs fine. No build sheet under the rear seat- but I havent
pulled the seats yet.

Hoping this was a good buy and will be a great project for my son and I

Any input would be much appreciated - Thanks
