BBC NEW maincap- #2-3-4

Post by ALKYAL » Tue Feb 23, 2016 1:17 pm

I am looking for a NEW chevy Bowtie BBC main cap [First Gen. late 80s thru late 90s]. From position #2-3-4. The cap I am looking for is a CAST cap. I had purchased 2 of these many yrs ago. They are NOT bored. They were left "AS CAST" in the bearing bore area. They need to line-bored. They were only cast iron-Not the ductile iron that the perf. caps were made from. Believe they were a little wider on the register [approx .005 as I remember] Thanks

i have some of those but i don't want to get rid of them..
i think the boxes that i have still have the gm part number on them and they were available as a (in field service repair cap) the ones that i used to get fit the regestures and were rough bored about .100 under so you didn't have to jack the caps around to make them fit,, i used them to convert 2 bolt blocks to 4 bolt and at 1 time was able to get the rear cap also.. i will check tomorrow and get a part number for you maybe if the numbers are still on the boxes..

I believe I have a REAR cap of this type. Brg. bore and thrust surfaces [F-R] need to be finish machined. We could trade if that would be of any interest. Thanks Al

I did contact HER. She never responded. Just looks like a used cap. A guy from Cinn. also has some used caps. I have plenty of those. Just wanted a new cap to match the other 2 I have on a block. The one [1] I am looking for is .100 small in the bore. Thanks for your suggestion. Al

The place that has 49 of them, Only wants 150.00 for ONE cap ! Shipping is another 14.00. No thanks. The P/N that ends in 334 is NOT the correct part number. The Cap has 335 4 cast into it. The P/N @ the place that has 49 of them is the CORRECT P/N. Going to Racing Junk to find a set of Steel Caps. Thanks to ALL Al
