I had an O2D pacer that I sold a couple years ago. It also had the T0220 HB with the 388 block.  I am keeping a data base of Z11s and Z10s I have about 200 so far. I would appreciate it if you can tell me more about your car and the Vin#. You can email me directly if you wish at 69ssrsz11@charter.net.

Thanks

The canisters are actually weights. There is one located in each corner of the car to help with the stability and handling for convertible cars.
I wil have to look up the manifolds as it has been awhile and my current car is a big block.

The "Cans" are called "shakers" or "cocktail shakers".  They help stiffen the body on convertibles as the roof is missing.

Intake Casting #3927184
Distributor #1111489
Exhaust #???

Wheel Codes:  I think there are a few possibilities.  XT, YJ, YA but I would guess YJ and that is what are on mine.

The "Cans" are called "shakers" or "cocktail shakers".  They help stiffen the body on convertibles as the roof is missing.

More to the point, they are vibration dampers - they don't stiffen the body, but they dampen torsional vibrations that occur as a result of the convertible's reduced body stiffness; you'll find two more in front, behind the headlights, and a bolted-on "X-brace" across the bottom of the transmission tunnel, used only on convertibles, that adds back some of the lost body stiffness.
