Regarding the water pump rebuild kit. Purchased one from Zip. Had a machinist friend help me at his shop. He had a good press and the knowledge. This should not be that hard to do, especially with an experienced machinist. Used the instructions on the Corvette Magazine site. The repair kit did not come with instruction. Took our time and read the instructions carefully, but when we pressed the seal on there was no clearance and the shaft would not turn. Was able to remove the seal without damaging the shaft or housing. Called Zip to see if they would sell another seal. Was informed they did not offer just the seal. Been checking for a source for another seal. All of the chain stores don't carry them. Don't know what we did wrong, but I have $50.00 in a kit I can't use and a pump that is halfway build. My machinist friend questioned some of the instructions(probably went against his experience), but I wanted to follow them as written. Appreciate if anyone has suggestions. Seal shows # 262714.

I Had this problem also.

When I get to it, I will post source for Seal & special tool I made to install same.

PS. I learned the Hard way on supporting the pump by the body NOT the Legs- Scratch one Dated 68 Z28 Pump! Makes a Nice 2 piece paper weight. (Live & Learn by Doing!)

looks good. I think your exhaust french locks- (the upside down U) should be be bent down though. It is on 69, so I assume it should be bent down on 67?

Also is the sticker on the valve cover 302 only thing for 67?

Thanks fellas
To Jon Mello this is the motor I was talking to you about.
I have to learn how to use this site !
My father acquired this motor from the original buyer in late 69 or early 70 from what I can remember. I believe the car was made into a race car like so many Camaros did. I know the original owner died in Vietnam and my father got the engine from the father. The car probably ended up in a crusher which would break many hearts.

LI Corvette sells them.

  Did you check eBay? I know the BBC seals are on there.
Does the replacement shaft length look the same as the one removed?
