  1. Not to change the subject, the bumper should fit 1978-87 Chevrolet El Camino, but should also fit GM mid-sized station wagons from those years.
  2. small block Chevrolet V8
  3. On second thought, it could also be an bumper accessory for the '55 Chevrolet.
  4. Parts of a continental kit for 1955 Chevrolet?
  5. I thought that's what I said, in so many words, I guess some people just like to argue, oh never mind.
  6. It's called the propane enrichment test, which involves removing the burner off the valve that goes on the tank and installing a hose (a tight leak-proof connection) with the engine running AND CHECKING FOR NO SPARKS, crack open the valve and run the hose around carb base or anywhere a leak could be when the idle increases that's the area of the leak. It could be dangerous though.
  7. Yes, I agree. The second car from the near left is the 1939 Chevrolet, behind the one you can only see the rear of.
  8. The 327/300 HP engine should have a Carter AFB, instead of the Rochester 4GC. Of course, the intake is different but it also has larger runners? The intake valves are bigger, 1.94?
  9. I bought a '68 Chevrolet C-10 (1/2 ton) LWB w/ standard transmission in the late '70's, the first problem I encountered was the gear shift becoming jammed and not being able to get the transmission in gear. I remember took the truck to the local Chevrolet dealership, and they rebuilt the column. The shift levers @ the transmission have plastic bushings that can wear out. These trucks have a coil spring instead of a rear leaf spring suspension, may have to replace the springs and/or add air shocks.
  10. Nice Vette, but not a '70, mid '70's '74-'76, I doubt one from these years would have 350 hp with a small block 350 w/automatic from the factory. If this car is original.

    The 265 blocks did not have oil filters. Dealerships would install a remote filter borrowed from the 235 6 and mounted it on the intake.
  12. The block been bored .60 over, the maximum. .30 over = 355 cu. in. .40 over = 357. I would ask why such an overbore? Were the cylinder(s) that bad to necessitate it? I would not bore a 350 more than .40 over. IMO.
  13. The car pictured is from the '90's, a 1994-96 Impala SS, that came with the Chevrolet 350 cu.in. LT1, only with cast iron heads instead of aluminum, and I think a different cam profile. 300?hp/330?torque 10 bolt posi. etc.
