Re: Another project, 1967 RS L30
Hi all. It's been way too long since I posted anything on Team Camaro, but I'm working on two cars simultaneously, and figured it was time for an update. A few years back I had Rex Hutchison's shop here in town build the short block 327 for this Camaro, but I hadn't gotten started on installing the RHS heads on it. So a few months back I had a rainy, quiet Saturday and decided to tear down the old '67 283 that was in my '55 Bel Air 4-door when I bought it, and since I'd put the ZZ430 clone I had originally built for my first Camaro into the Bel Air, I had this 283 up on the engine stand and wanted to see what condition it was in. To my surprise, once I got the insanely heavy cast iron 2 barrel intake manifold off the engine I found a really good set of internals, and to my surprise, a set of 1967 462 casting double hump heads. Since I like the thought of going "period correct", I decided to have these heads cleaned up and rebuilt, and installed on the short block back at Rex' shop. This should be a good match for a proper L30 car, and I'll talk to the shop manager about the cam recommendation for this engine. Perusing the YouTube videos, I love the sound of the old 30-30 cams, but I'll leave it up to the experts, and not my ears.
Relax, all right? My dad's a TV repairman, got an ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
