the link you posted http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PFS-80030...item description says "not for 92-96 LT1..". I assume they do make a LT1 specific damper. It really comes down to what "hub" you are using that will line up with whatever accessory bracket.


one you can get even cheaper and advertised with timing marks is:

so yes there are certainly options other than a ATI

a direct quote from summits page "Will not fit 1996-1997 LT4 Corvette or Camaro. Will not fit 1992-1996 LT1 Corvette."

It will not fit any year corvette because of the accessory bracket alignment.

I am missing it? No hub in the pic and I don't see it in the include list.

I looked at the page and it doesn't say it has one. Which is weird.

But here is some pics of one I have.

picture of "actual" product is worth 1000 words.

Like Caprice, I also saw by the Summit description it said "no" re: hub included so didn't know if it bolted to stock hub or you had to buy seperate per vehicle type with LT1

further the box in your pic says "all LT1/LT4" motors.

? on hub though as 96 motors have the crank trigger gear so aren't hub depth diffrent between 94-95 vs 96...and also diffrent between b, f & vette bodys??

For my 70 Nova application I was using a B-body accessory bracket since that is what I have. Just using alt & PS so most likely will cut off the AC part of it.

If u look in the box it has a little ring if u dont run the reluctor ring u run that. As for the brackets there is a spacer in the box for b-bodies. U dont run the spacer on fbodies. Cant run it on corvettes.

There are directions on the summit page

Edit if u look at the 2nd pic you can see the reluctor ring spacer at the top and the accessory spacer at the bottom

thanks for the feed back, I'm going with the '95 lt1 Block (since I already have it sitting there) and setting it up for a carb in my 84 caprice. I've got the gmpp intake and opti block off plate from philip thank you. I have a holley 750cfm dual feed carb on its way I'll order the remaining parts between now and spring time. I'm going to use the 700r4 trans that was in the car until it blows. it will be interesting to see what gives up first the tranny or the stock 2.73 rear end in the 84. This is just a toy for me so I'm not looking for amazing fuel economy so there is no need to keep it fuel injected. If I want to have some fun and worry about fuel I'll just drive the other 95 LT1 caprice 9C1 I have.

Is the manual Trans stud in the same place as the older 79-81 Trans AMs? Or do I have to make the hydronic swap as well? I have a old 81 that blew its Pontiac 455. I was thinking of making this swap.

Hey guys. I know this is an old thread. I'm doing an LT1 carb conversion for my 3rd gen. My question is, when you remove the water pump drive gear, what do you do with the hole and the two holes to the left and right. Do they need closed up?

Looking for pictures or possible details on the manual/electronic gauge set up in the carb swap. Very interested in doing this swap. Any info is appreciated. Thanks

Other peoples input can be very useful. However going with the norm can be boring. I did the carb swap to 95 Lt1 camaro. I really enjoyed and was satisfied with the swap. I noticed a little a better throttle response which was a lot of fun with the 6spd. I dropped in a msd pro billet dist in the gen 1 sbc location. I did the stock dist block off plate and balancer swap with timing marks. There are several ways to set up the ignition which all works. It really just depends on what your goal is. How do you want it to look, & tolerance to the tech side. Fuel injection has advantages but so does carb. I it's the whole ford junk and chev argument. I can say that engine bay looked great without all the wiring, less aggregation with tuning, & response from others when they seen it.

If I had it to do all over again (which is the current project) I would go carb Ls all the way. Price is affordable and the engines are better built. Way more interchangeable parts and availability. Happy swapping!

This thread has been really helpful. I am up to the balancer part of my build. The book calls for a 6.75" diameter balancer to clear the timing tab on the GMPP opti block off plug. However you all mention that a 7.5" diameter balancer has worked - how does it clear the tab? from the pics of http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PFS-80030/ it looks like it might have a deep enough snout going over the crank that it clears the tab. The 6.75" balancers i have tried so far contact the timing cover before they seat onto the crank snout. help
