The Engine Hoist BROKE When We Tried To Install The LS2 In My 67 CAMARO

  Դիտումներ 97,803


5 ամիս առաջ

I bought a 67 Camaro RS for only $6,500 and I'm taking it to LS Fest East.
Now that the Powerglide transmission and the LS2 from J&J Auto Wrecking is ready to go, we're going to try to install it and get everything else ready to go as well. As always, things don't exactly go according to plan. The LS2 is getting the complete Holley EFI treatment and some BRAND NEW HK Wheels as well.
HK Wheels:
Nitto 555G2 Tires:
Now I've got 2 weeks to have this ready for LS Fest East, let's make it happen.

Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make AM-posts videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?

Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

I really enjoyed your Volvo, Kia, and (Camaro cleaning all the gunk out of the engine). With all the craziness in the world. It’s great to be able to watch some great car restoring content. Do you still have the Optima? Anyhow, I am excited for the next project you have in the works... Congrats on the new Ford Truck!

Am I the only one who doesn't understand why you'd want a 2-speed Powerglide behind an LS2? Shouldn't a restomod have a 5, 6, or 8-speed automatic?

If you go with a brand new aftermarket body, you should call this George Washington's Camaro. You know, like George Washington's axe, the head has been replaced twice and the handle 3 times, but its still George Washington's axe.

You're in for a big surprise with a full body. The people that are recommending it have probably never had to work with one. Also, don't you need a spacer for the torque converter because of the LS having a shorter crank? That's what I'm gonna have to do in my Laguna with a TH400 anyways.

Have you ever noticed that JRCAMO mooches off others' property to do HIS work? Wouldn't you think he could get someone to hold his cam for free as well? We are going to install a newish LS engine and mount it to a 2 speed slushbox that was an antique when new into a car that we are going to rebody sometime in the future. JRCAMO logic in action. There should be a warning on his videos that watching these for more than five minutes can cause permanent brain damage. Thank you engine hoist for throwing a monkey wrench into this joke. Thankfully the foolishness ended pretty quickly.

Just remember, if you buy a new repo body, in most states it is illegal to transfer your vin to it. Strangely, if you replace 95 % of the original body with repo parts, you're OK.

The $57. Is that with tint or without tint. Back in the day they had this little strip of tint a cross the top of the windshield to help with the sun. I know you younger generations are not full up on that era.

"It's my dream car!" "We're going to replace the motor with an L/S!" "We're going to replace the floors!" "We're going to replace the body!" So why not just go out and find a 67 Chevy Frame and a transmission and build a car around it??? lol
Michael Szczys

I’m rather confused, he talks about getting a whole new body shell. I thought Camaros were uni- body cars with no real frame , just suspension sub frame up front. I’m thinking he should have just bought all the aftermarket parts available and built a car from it and not bothered with the initial Rusty Camaro. Kinda like me getting an old 65 Panhead Harley and then saying I’m going to get new Delkron engine cases, new cylinders, new heads, a new 6-speed transmission, a custom frame, different wheels. Why bother with original bike?

if it were mine I would not rebody that car. A lot of people think it's fine to move the VIN to another body. It isn't. It's fraud. The VIN belongs to *this* car. Get caught, it's jail time.

You should paint that rusty crossmember and the other rust before putting the engine in

When you paint the transmission black that will make it hold in more heat and burn up the fluid and clutches. It’s better to paint it silver or aluminum color paint.

The only expensive glass is the vent windows. They suck and leak when you rebuild them as well. Going restomod I would do the single glass and just get the power window unit for the doors. I heard you say something about doing a rebody with it as well. Check with your state department of motor vehicle and see if it is possible for you to do it or not . Some states don’t allow it. You have to use some of the old car for you to be able too put your vin on it. I built a car for a guy in Florida and he had the vin and fender tags for the car as well as the title but Florida we had to use parts from the car to build the car and they wanted pictures. Luckily I had a car we were cutting up for another build and we swapped out some parts for he had cut his dash out and the other parts where the vin was so we had to graft them into the new body. They are not perfect when you get them and they take a lot of work to get them to look good. You do have a brand new 1967 camaro when you get done with it..

Why drop an engine in a body you’re going to replace, just mount the engine and transmission on a new subframe and wait for the new body. I guess you paid $6,500 for a 1967 Camaro vin plate.
