IMPORTANT! Safety glasses should be worn at all times when working on or near the exhaust system. Older exhaust systems will almost always be covered with loose rust particles which will shower you when disturbed. These particles are more than a nuisance and could injure your eye.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  2. Spray all fasteners which are to be disconnected using a penetrating oil.
  3. Loosen and remove the hanger clamps from the tailpipe.
  4. Remove the tailpipe-to-muffler clamp.
  5. Disengage the tailpipe from the muffler and remove the tailpipe.
  6. Inspect the tailpipe hangers; replace, if necessary.

  8. Add sealer to the connecting surfaces.
  9. Engage the tailpipe to the muffler, and then loosely install the retaining clamp.
  10. Install the hanger clamps to the tailpipe.
  11. Check the clearance and tighten the attachments.
  12. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
  13. Run the engine and check for leaks, but be careful NOT to touch the hot exhaust pipes.

(See Figures 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11)

IMPORTANT! When you are disconnecting or connecting the fuel pump outlet fitting, always use 2 wrenches to avoid damaging the pump.

  1. Disconnect the fuel intake and outlet lines at the pump. Be sure to plug the pump intake line in order to prevent system contamination or excessive fuel loss.
  2. On small block V6 and V8 engines, remove the upper bolt from the right front mounting boss. Insert a longer bolt (3/8-16 x 2") in this hole to hold the fuel pump pushrod up and out of the way.
  3. Remove the two pump mounting bolts and lockwashers; and then remove the pump and its gasket from the engine.
  4. If the rocker arm pushrod is to be removed from equipped V6 or V8 engines, remove the two adapter bolts and lockwashers, and then remove the adapter and its gasket for access to the pushrod.

  6. Thoroughly clean the gasket mating surfaces of all old material or sealer.
  7. If removed, install the pushrod, and then install the adapter using a new gasket and secure using the retaining bolts.
  8. Coat the mating surfaces with a suitable sealer, and then install the fuel pump assembly using a new gasket.
  9. NOTE: On vehicles equipped with a pushrod to actuate the fuel pump rocker arm, if a bolt was not used to secure the pushrod it may interfere with pump installation. A small screwdriver or thin plastic tool may be used to hold the pushrod up and out of the way while the fuel pump is installed. Make sure the pump rocker arm is properly located under the pushrod. Another method of retaining the pushrod is to pack it into position using grease, though this will only work on a cold engine.

  10. Install the fuel pump to the engine using a new gasket.
  11. Install and tighten the pump retaining bolts.

Not for the 67
You get what you pay for. This manual has virtually nothing for the 1967 Chevelle owner besides common mechanical knowledge. If you need detailed information this will be a waste of money. Seems to be covering too many models with one publication. No specifics on 67 dash or bumpers, etc. Mostly covers later models in some detail. I'll keep it for quick reference on specifications but will have to spend some bucks for a real shop manual.The Chilton total care product is written more for the novice mechanic. It sounds like you are a seasoned mechanic. If so, we recommend an OEM shop manual. These three products would definitely better server your needs: 1967 Chevy OEM Chassis Shop Manual, 1967 Chevy OEM Shop & Parts Manuals kit on CD or 1967 Body by Fisher OEM Service Manual. We offer a 30 day warranty so feel free to call our office for help.

Chilton's manuals have always been an informative source for removal and installation projects
I purchased a CLONE vehicle that did not have the original motor. This manual encompassed the car, clone and motor for my project vehicle. It was nice to have just one manual to reference, rather than three different ones. I can highlight, and mark pages that pertain to what I need. It suits my need for this project very well. Kutos to CHILTON's again.
