Correct Distributor?
« on: November 08, 2008, 06:22:09 AM »
I am concerned as to whether the distributor on my car is correct.   The car was built 11A (first week of Nov. 66), the engine is a 210 hp. 327 -2 bbl. (base engine) suffix code ME, and yes it has a powerglide.   The date code on the engine is J 17 6 which I believe codes out as Oct. 17 -66 which would be correct for the car build date.( I believe)   Alternator is standard 37 Amp. dated 6K21 (I believe correct)   My concern main is the distributor.   Information I have been able to gather tells me this engine should have a part # 1111443 distributor,  the one on the car is a # 1111150 and it is dated 6 G 15 isn't that pretty early to be on this engine?   Thanks for any help.

First, welcome to CRG.  I realize no one has picked up on the two questions you have asked.

I'm really not an expert on distributors, but let me take a shot at it looking at the #s.  A 1111150 was used on the 283/195HP Chevy motors in 67.  If I'm reading Colvin (and the P&A) right you should be looking for a 1111101 for a 67 327/210HP.

I'll let the more knowledgeable folks tell you about the needed date code....

Checking a couple of on line references, they both have the same information as follows for 1st Gen Camaro 327/210 usage:


part number             engine          tranny (std or auto)             type of points
                     
                                                     1967
1111101                  327/210               all                                   single


                                                     1968
1111440                   327/210             std                                   single
1111443                   327/210            auto                                  single
   


                                                     1969
1111481                   307/200             all                                   single

'67 and '69 Chassis Service Manuals show the same distributor usages for the 327/210, except the '69 manual shows the 481 used only on the 307/200 Nova and Chevelle.
