NEXT  problem is now that I have this roller cam in and put on a set of new aluminum valve covers and I am having fun. The alternator hits the taller valve covers and that means I have no adjustment for the alternator.. Grin Got any words of wisdom for me. Huh

I got the info and now I have it all set up and the engine runs and has a nice sound, but and yes but, I put the alternator on and it hit the new taller valve covers. I get a foot ahead and fall three feet back. Has anyone had this problem and how can I solve it before I hit another wall.

I had a similar problem when I switched to a new alt on my 73. I fabed a new bracket. I put the alt in a better position, took a piece of cardboard & designed a bracket to fit. Then cut a piece of metal to fit...painted it black. You will have to get a larger belt most likely,,,most places will let you buy a few different sizes then return the ones that don't fit.

I have a 1977 L82 and mine has a TH400 tranny. I have a bad line and need to replace it. Ecklers has the lines but they show a L82 with a TH350 and a L88 with a TH400 not an L82 with a TH400. Has anyone used the lines for a L88 TH400 on an L82 with a TH400? Do you think the bends will be close to the same?  Undecided

Alan, before I got into the cut and weld on my alternator bracket. I had installed the taller valve covers since I changed out the flat tappet cam for a roller with a high lift the old covers did not work. I got to thinking which usually caused me to need some Excedrin Grin and I pulled the valve cover off the side where my alternator is and I bought a belt an inch longer and put that on and tightened up the alternator and then put the valve cover back on. It clears and the cover will fit. Man was I given a break finally Cheesy.

So far a C3 L82 with the TH400 and a 350 engine must be the most unique and hardest to find car in the World.  I have asked almost all the parts people that sell parts on the internet (ecklers, summit, jeg,) and several others and there is no such animal and yet I have one in my garage. Maybe if it is so rare I could get $1,000,000.00 for mine. Grin

I found a set of lines for a TH400 for a 75 with a small block. They ask if I have a short or long fuel pump. Since I have never seen the two fuel pumps side by side I have no idea if mine is short or long. I ordered the lines any way. I have a set of benders for steal tubing, if the fuel pump is the problem I can toss it and go electric. The electric is probably better any way. Roll Eyes
