Nice collection of banana bikes too, hopefully all Schwinn products:good Both 250 and 275hp 327’s have a q-jet in 68. I think 69 was the only year for a 2bbl on a 327. Grandmother of my best friend in high school had a bone original 69 camaro, 327-2bbl and a 4-speed. Hugger orange, black interior. Standard camaro just blue bowties on the grille and taillight panel. She bought it barely used in 1970 and garaged it that whole time. Neat car.

Brad I don’t know what you have for valve covers but I’ve got several sets hanging on the wall. And one or two other BBC parts...
I have all kinds of brackets and pulleys and Made spacers for when I had my blower motor, I’ve got high torque factory starters I’ve got high torque aftermarket starters oil pans I’ve got some rods I got some pistons for high high compression by 13 to 1 . Got every combustion chamber size head for compression desired. From 100 cc to 122 Cc all are large oval port. Some have hardened exhaust seats. Just something to think about.

Here is the TRW forged blower piston number that I used. Had 118cc combustion chambers with .042 copper head gaskets and my block was O-ringed. I ran about 12% overdrive and had a hoot until I hit about 7400 rpm. Had a 7500 limiter chip... what I didn’t know is when we done the initial start up a friend of mine was squirting fuel in the injector to pick up from the tank and the plate for the pump was on incorrectly due to bad instruction from Enderle. Which caused him to hydraulic rods one and two. It ran for a long time and ran really good until one day it had a good load on it at 7400 and it made a nasty crunched noise. :facepalmand this was the result. I should’ve known when it killed one and two cylinders and I had to put new plugs in it that it could’ve bent the rods but I was too excited and Ran with it the way it was. After I change the plugs it fired right up and the videos that I posted of it was with bent rods in it that my superman vision wasn’t working and couldn’t see. Lesson learned. Don’t let somebody else squirt fuel in your carburetors on start up and if it kills the plugs you better go through it..:facepalm:confused this number is for .030 454.... 8.1. W/118cc heads

Its official, you have a little more junk than me. Good junk, the kind of junk I don't need more of but would certainly find room for it. :D

:yup Sad part is that’s not even all of it, I have a 20 foot storage container with shelves full. And I always tell everybody I buy junk and sell antiques that makes it worth more money!:brow
Well, I have been doing such a great job last year getting rid of stuff I don't use. I was down to just 1 small block chevy motor and the rest was all W motors/parts. Now I have 3 700r4's, 2 Ford 302, 2 BBC with 4 sets of heads and a number of intakes and valve covers. Free stuff is so hard to pass up when there is nothing wrong with them but my buddies don't have as much space as I do.

I gave away 3 truck loads of chevy parts to a buddy. His wife was pissed he took that day to collect the parts. When he got home with the 3rd load the fire dept was putting out the garage fire she'd started in his '70 Chevelle SS 454

I bet the story ends something like this. He stays with her, she is not prosecuted for arson. I will never understand people or what they think is love or relationships. I bet there were many prior signs or issues to that day. I would have left long ago. But others....NOOOOOOOOO
