    Decode this P case? Anybody?

    Should be a code stamped on the other side which will give you info on application (full-size or Corvette), gear ratio and assembly date. If that is missing there should be dates on the posi unit and the ring gear as well as the tooth count. Example 37 10 3:70 ratio

    Wanted Turquoise Floor Mats

    I have a seamist turquoise Impala. I've owned it for thirty years and have never found turquoise mats other than some very over priced NOS ones and haven't seen any of those for sale for several years. I have black mats in mine and they look OK.

    Confused about oval port vs. Rectangular port heads

    The rectangular and oval port heads are a 396 427 454 thing. Has nothing to due with 348 409. The 62-65 high performance heads had a taller intake port but the exhaust port is the same for all 348 409.

    I assume that you want the old school look so make sure you get an intake with the oil fill tube. I would be concerned about the afb sealing properly on the intake you have. I would look for a 62-65 300hp intake.

    Losing oil

    The port on the Edelbrock manifold is not supposed to have a pcv valve in it. It is just vented to the air cleaner. I found this to be a rather strange setup but that is what the instruction sheet that came with the manifold states.

    61 Impala SS 409 at Mecum Chicago

    I think that the early white cars had a black insert but later on you could get a few different colors to match the interior. The power brake booster is a bendix unit that was dealer installed. The factory unit that was a mandatory SS item was a Delco-Moraine unit.

    265 V-8

    Another option is to use an early edelbrock intake C3B. It has the oil fill tube and after grinding off the numbers and painting it would look very much like a stock manifold. They usually sell for $100 to $150. The 57 265 block is a great choice as it is the same block used for the 283 so you...

    '58 - 348 Tri Power

    The picture shows a no bowtie valve cover. The valve covers must of been on a Canadian Pontiac.

    Manual Steering 62-64

    The gear ratio is different between a manual and a power steering gears. I believe that a manual has a 24 to l ratio and the ps has a 20 to 1.
