Radiator petcock
« on: February 13, 2008, 01:24:16 AM »
On the original petcock on 67 camaros did the ear openings face towards the engine or towards the radiator? If I have it straight the repops are opposite of the original. Thanks  Bill

Thanks for the info. I thought I was correct but I couldn't put my finger on the exact info.   Bill

This one fits and is pretty close to the orig.
The "ears" are in the right direction

Beware.....some guys I know ordered the same part from them and got the typical repro part with the ears going the wrong way......

Make sure you ask first.....

Has anyone purchased good quality reproductions?  If so, from whom?

Do certain year Corvettes use the same petcock and are there good Corvette reproductions available?

Thanks,

Yes!  67, 68, & 69 all point the same direction.     :)
