Hello, did the 1968 z/28 302 have a oil splash shield?

If you're talking about a windage tray, yes...Joe

I'm talking about the shield that's attached to the main caps with special bolts.

OK thanks. The windage tray I have came from a 4 bolt 350 sbc and I'm using it on a two bolt 302 z/28. However the special bolts are two long (4bolt vs 2bolt main caps), Can these be cut down or are the correct bolts available?

The original 3872718 studs were discontinued LONG ago, but you might still be able to find them on ebay. I think you can get functional replacements from Milodon or ARP though.

Thanks Ed. I found some of these in a box a month ago. We'll see if that's what they are when I get home...Joe

thanks guys, the bolts I have must be the long ones, 3-5/16 on the long end and the same on the short end. The 5/16 is exactly the length that prevents me from using them. Do either of you have a problem with cutting them down? In the mean time I'll search the internet for the correct ones.

When I built my homemade 302,30 plus years ago I had to cut the bolts down and had no problem.
