      I agree with you But in Jim's book he says the part 2585375 is the correct fan, so his part number in the book is wrong.

      I believe 376 (the second fan) with the 070 clutch. My opinion from looking at real restored L023 cars online and in magazine articles I have collected.

        I know this is a old post but my car, automatic had a 8 3/4 in it. Swapped to a dana and I still have the original housing from the car. I could measure it if anyone wants the info.

          did someone mention "No warranty" sticker? I had an original SS aluminum water pump housing and it had a little 3" square reservoir on top, was that stock?

          2nd owner in the 70's when I bought it. It was original minus the drivers door glass, a set of Cragars, 10 inch slicks and I didn't get the glass packs. It still had the original battery and steel plate under it. Nothing was modified even had the original camshaft.

            The reason I put the dana in it I broke a tooth off the 8 3/4.

            Maybe it has been covered before, if so I just had not found it.
            What torsion bars were in the original SS cars when they were assembled? Light slant six bars for drag racing or the thicker 383 bars or something else?

              A lot of the SS 8 3/4 rears broke. Tom Myl said his broke first time out testing and they put a Dana in it.

                The Porsche seats were on the mule car only. Mopar had planned on using them but technically they weren't "American production" so they couldn't be used.

                  Just found this thread... interesting fact: the 376 fan and clutch were also recommended in the Mopar Slant Six racing manual.
