Originality / Hurst blower motor cage ?
« Last post by paulmanta on February 09, 2016, 06:27:47 PM »
I have been fixing up the daily driver 67 Camaro and finally getting the heaters sorted, they were filed up with mouse food/nests and the flaps were stiff and there was no airflow so a complete job was needed.

Fenders off, boxes out, shop-vac used, then a dip in the disinfectant bath for a day or two and its all looking better.

One of the things I found was that the rodents had eaten the plastic fan cage so today I removed its remains and put in the used tin one I had in stock.

Closer inspection of the remains of the old one showed a part number and a Hurst logo.

Did Hurst make fan cages for GM back in the day ?  I am sure as I can be that this car has never been taken apart, all the sealer and nuts look totally undisturbed, the core was a Harrison that matched numbers with the car pretty well so I think this is original.

Are you trying to get the door to fender and rocker to fender to be an even gap?   It is not necessary, you can get your door gap by spacing back from the rocker, leaving the rocker proud of the door.

It's interesting (and very disturbing) what our government's executive branch (not just EPA) are trying to do... well beyond the laws as written/passed by congress which are supposed to control such actions...

The front fender gap has be slightly larger than the other's because of the way the door and fender peaks align.
I would massage the rear edge of the fender do that it aligns better to the rocker, it will give you a little and then a little in the hinges would make a huge difference.

It almost looks like there is a slight bump on the front of the rocker as well.
I haven't really touched the front fender gap at this point. I actually took it off on Sunday to better assess the door to rocker alignment. In the picture I think I had three bolts holding it on. I'm just trying to line up the front edge of the door with the front edge of the rocker. Once I'm able to do that, I'll be able to see where I stand with the gaps. The rocker is pretty straight. It must be the angle of the pic where you're seeing a bump. I'm not sure.

Isn't the cowl paint, and how it was painted related to the PBT stamps since some of the cowl paint 'misted' down over the upper reaches of the firewall (to wit, James' post)...??  which came first?  the chicken or the egg?  :)

O-1 is special paint - white top. 

Are you under the assumption that the tail pan should be black?
If so what gives you that idea?
If not why would you paint the car in an incorrect configuration?

If showing it in stock classes you are going to encounter all types of push back and needless point deductions.

All great discussion & info on the PBT stampings but shouldn't this be separated into another thread for better searching in the future?

Im from western MA. I have talked to Jeff Morgan. He is a great guy with a sweet car. One of the things he clued me in on was to use the bypass valve. he told me he had an oil pressure issue. That is why I got one so early in build. He also told me he had Diamond custom make pistons for his 074 heads. I think I will use the new GMPP Rovals made by Edelbrock. I wish the looked more stock though
