    There is an adjustment procedure in the shop manual. The adjustment also affects shift pressure/firmness, in the same manner that a TV cable adjustment does on a 700-R4 or 200-4R transmission.

    The 67 Camaro master cylinder is much smaller than the 68 Corvette, so it's less likely to have interference with the p/s pump. I'm going to guess the 69 GMC master cylinder is similar to the Camaro...

    I don't think it's going to matter a bit to the look. The 6" rim may clear the fender better. The 6" and 7" rims use a different trim ring. Do you have trim rings for the 6"?
