Which is right?
« on: October 11, 2006, 07:01:26 AM »
I just got a 350 RS/SS convert. 60,000 miles
Production number 162282.
Engine number = VT228MS.
Tranny = P7S07
Axle = QL12222G
Alternator = 6M27
Distributor = 6M19
All December numbers(November tranny).
Norwood Plant

In reading things it says that all SS's are big blocks.
Confused, as other things I read say 350 is a small block.

Don't have casting numbers yet but here's cowl tag

There is a Holley carb on the motor(BB) but readouts here says it came a Qudra-Jet.
Looks like a riser plate between intake and carb? True part?
Clutched fan. True part? (no A/C)
Is an easy way to identify SB(looking in engine compartment, 1: hose exit from heater box? 2: rows on rad (2 or 3?))

Did these come with full size spare or space saver?

Update

I don't know what you are reading that says all SS's are big blocks but it is wrong.  It appears that the drivetrain you have listed is correct for a ss 350 car.  It would have had a quadrajet.  What are some casting numbers as well as the cowl tag numbers?  It would have come with a full size spare.

Go read it again.  It should say "All BB were SS".  There's a difference.  That does not rule out 350s.  All 67-68 350s were SS.

Go re-read this:  http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#PerformanceModels  --under performace engines.

And this:  http://www.camaros.org/engine.shtml#CamaroEngines  --under what was available.

Some of this stuff can be confusing....
