    200 transmission is not Powerglide.

    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...

    Most of us with a modified car don't care about rotating the tires. Mainly because we don't run the same size tire front and rear. Also because of the low mileage.

    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"?

    Balancer should always bottom out. If the crank pulley doesn't line up with everything else, it's the wrong crank pulley. Probably a mixup between SWP and LWP parts, as said.

    You've nailed their logic. That means the heater core will have water with a temperature close to that of the cold side of the radiator. Maybe 30-50° cooler than the hot side of the radiator.

    That only works if the engine hasn't been moved forward and the transmission is the same length as previously. When your dad did it, and again this time. I suggest you measure if any doubt.

    Sometimes the lock ring gets chiseled off. Sometimes the bearing is damaged pressing it off. But if it's on backwards, you don't have much choice but to try fix it and save it.
