Sound like 70 and up. I have zero fitment issues with my round port long branch RARE repops w/Ram Air II heads.

Not to mention that repop round port long branch manifolds haven't been available in 6-7 years.

I don't recall the cam part number off hand. Thanks for advice on intake, but I'll stay the course to get it going. Carb is a 770 street avenger.

The top part in the picture is the center valance mount but there should be two of them one right and one left.
The other part I'm not sure of .

Well I bit the bullet and ordered the part. I'm glad Classic had a sale and free shipping but had to get a few more parts. That's been my life with this Bird ;-)

Remember a buddy back in the 80's had those. Maybe AMC or Dodge?...

Thanks for the information.
If that was optional I'll just leave mine the way it is. My car's kind of a plain Jane anyway,
I don't notice the screws when I'm sitting in the car, just when reaching in to pick up something off the floor. Or look at a photograph of the dash.

I am not sure where my # is listed or I would change it.

I found a OEM hood here in MI which is what I really wanted for $175

Thanks you for getting back with me.

Hard to say.
I had the Best gasket in when the crank chewed it up, but that was due to the out of round seal groove. It was so tight it actually burned the crank and I had to polish it before reinstalling.
When I re-did it I used the two piece BOP seal, worked as advertised. When I had to build it again after the lifter failure, I tried a one piece BOP but I couldn't get it installed correctly so I used a two piece.

Dave, over at SD Performance, recommends the one piece but says it takes two guys to install it. The one piece seal makes more sense and I would use that as long as I had someone to help me lay the crank.

I'll attach a photograph of the crank seal surface before I polished it. I don't think it would have mattered what seal was in there, it was going to leak with the seal groove that far out of round.

Also make sure you use a Pontiac throw out fork, Chevy is not the same. And many folks run into trouble by not having the right throw out bearing for their pressure plate. There are two different length bearings, for low and high diaphragm clutches.

Just got a reply in the for sale section. Looks like 3/4" dia x 3/4" long, with a 3/8" hole. All edges chamfered and made of mild steel. Will put the calipers to it and see if I can get exact dimensions for a hobbyist machinist to knock out a few.

OK. I can see I crossed a line with the SBC comment. LOL. So, please disregard. We might be on the lookout for a 400 pontiac motor. The good news is we put a new head gasket on the cammer and it seems to have done the trick. Compression between 160 to 170 on all cylinders. Intake manifold has a leak now so will have to reinstall, but I think the rest of the motor survived the spark plug melt down...Time will tell..Appreciate the comments and I'm glad to find out that a 400 motor might not be too hard to find after all...

I sort of rebuilt mine years ago, the contacts wear out, hooked it up to my truck battery and watched it all day, it ran and rewound perfectly, put it back in the console, with a switch under the dash so I could turn it off, they do suck up juice remember these were designed for cars that were used daily, well it worked until we went out that night and just said screw it, set it for 5 o clock too and there it has been for 12 years. There is a kit to make it modern and I may do that. Yours sounds like the spring is weak, or you're not getting a full wind when the contacts hit.
