I have been pouring through archived forum discussions for the last few days and WOW! What an unbelieveable web site. Hats off to Kurt, Rich, senior members and everybody else associated with CRG that has organized and contributed to this effort. Research on the site is made easy and there is indeed a vast pool of expierienced knowledge to draw from. Although in some threads reference is made to not wanting to devulge some parts of the data base on a public forum, with so much information, one can almost extrapolate to the same conclusion as if he had recieved it. WOW! again, really cool.
My favorate reading so far has been the conversation about the first two L78 pace cars and Bill Jenkins' first car argument. That was very interesting because it ended I believe postulating the question, (where are the 20 L78 cars before Jenkins') likely 4P coded. And someone concluded, probably destroyed.
I have to admit my 67 is only the second Chevy I have owned, a 64 283 Nova the other. Yep Rich, Camero, remember, that's why I guess I'm not that knowledgeable.
Oh well. I am very fond of them both and I am learning thanks to you guys.
Thanks to everybody who has responded to my questions thus far. But can you guys definitively conclude for me that my car is not an early 02B 4P coded L78 so I can concentrate on getting back to L30/M20 specs?
Facts so far:
1 (wrong rear end)
2 (Factory dual exhaust but not optioned on tag) (or maybee is should only be optioned on build sheet not tag?)
3 (speedo cable usage on drivers side of steering column, no hole cut for other)
4 (manual drum brakes)
5 (manual steering)
6 (radius rod stiffener plate on floor under back seat)
7 (4 speed car yes)
8 (4P car yes)
9 (current small block heater box)
10 (hidden VIN matches title)
11 (fisher tag looks undisturbed)
1 (were there any Saginaw L78 cars in early 67? contain laughter please
2 (mentioned was that I have a big block cross member, did he mean transmission or engine cross member?)
3 (do my engine mounts appear to be small or big block?)
4 (were there small and big front manual drums in 67?)
5 (how do you measure fuel line diamater? ID. or OD.)
Ya, Ya, I know....... dream on. If you guys get a chance, thanks alot.
