Haha, no mechanical work will be done on it there. Sometime this year we're going to drag it to my place so I can pull the engine.

The Chevelle has 255/70/15s on the rear compared to the Camaro's 255/60/15s. Just for giggles, I bolted the Chevelle's wheels on the Camaro to see the rake. Raised it about 1.5 inches, roughly.

I ran Berryman B12 through it a couple months ago. Shouldn't be anything gummed up. It's definitely something I plan on really investigating.

Wires are new, the noise is from the passenger side. Plus, like I said, the last rocker on #8 (I'm not sure which side is intake or exhaust but I know it's the number 8 cylinder) doesn't move much...

I meant if it does end up being a dead cam lobe, then it's getting pulled.

That's what I was afraid of.
The good news is that I'm living at Pappaw's house now, and there's an iron beam with a chain for engine pulling (since if I'm going this far into it, I may as well...

Alright fellas, I still haven't learned to leave well enough alone.

Thanks all. I've already decided I'm certainly fixing it myself. It's just a matter of going thru probate unscathed. Shouldn't be an issue- everyone in the family is in agreement.

Time for the yearly update, and it's... not a good one.

Which means it's still knocking like a...

I hesitate to agree. The Camaro had these and I was told they weren't even worth rechroming. I don't know how much rechroming mine would have cost (granted mine were really rough) but apparently as...

I'm quite a bit younger than most of the folks here, so my first truck was a 1996 Dakota. I sold it to a buddy, and he blew it up. I miss it a lot.

Here's what I believe to be 15x6 fronts and 15x7 rear (I was 6 when these went on). Flat spokes and I don't care. 215/60/15 front, 255/60/15 rear. Don't know the offset or backspacing.

I mean, I'm sure there are other stockers. I really don't like Pro-Touring stuff but it's honestly not that big of a deal. Especially if the guy kept all the original parts

I think I'm running 15x6 in the front and 15x7 in the rear (this was 15 years ago, I was 6, and my grandfather's memory isn't great) on 215/60/15 and 255/60/15. As you can probably tell, the springs...
