Agree with the NO synthetic. Made the mistake putting it in the 4 speed trans of my 81 HD Lowrider. One thing I found that was needing to replace though when I put it in was the clutch main shaft seal...If you have a leak, it will show up. Not designed for these older machines. Sta lube Gear Oil 85x-90.

I had about 10 of those things from my Pontiac days laying around last year when I was cleaning out my Pontiac stuff. I'm thinking they weren't used on any of the RAM AIR engines and for the life of me I don't remember seeing one on my 69 Judge. May the difference between the log type exhaust manifolds and the Ram Air manifolds.

General Discussion / Re: 302 Replacement Pistons
« on: July 29, 2016, 03:34:49 AM »
I went with pressed pins myself on my current 302. Many years ago, mid 70's, I did a 12 to 1 piston 302 with the 2nd design road race cam with my first 69 Z. When that engine started up it was the noisiest I've ever heard. Turns out I had 3 pistons slapping the heads. Didn't even have a clue what it was until the engine shop that did the machine work checked it out. Not even sure what they even did to fix it now that I think about it. I was young dumb and full of you know what then, and was just learning about engines at the point of my life. But boy did that engine scream.

Reason for me posting it was for people to see that there are outliers when it comes to how these cars are suppose to be restored vs how they were originally built.

Regardless where it was suppose to be according to assembly line direction this is as close to original of a photo as it will get with this car and I would suspect that because this was a very early 69 build car that it was more than likely positioned wrong at the plant and missed..  Why would you move the emblem to the "correct" position and create another cookie cutter car when these were built by humans and had human errors..  Does that mean all cars were missed?  Of course not but the emblem will stay in the location it is in on this car. 

Oh and the reason for the discussion about the emblem between us was I didnt think it was correct until seeing the photos.

Hi DW...I was just looking at the pic of the car you posted and my pic just above it...Look at the emblem placement on both grills...optical illusion?

Hey guys...thanks for the replies. Darrell, thanks for the heads up on the CRG post. I sent Brian a PM this morning...I'm sure this will get straightened out.

Don't like the new T.C. site, but as long as I can go back to the last format I'll take my time learning the new format.

Hello Darrell. This is as far as I can get, see link below...If I want to change my password I have to go thru the 'Human Verification' process afterwards, and as you can see by what it says...I'm still looking for THEE 'following box' to put my answer in...which isn't there. At this point there is no way I can do anything...kind of like I'm locked out. Was hoping Brian, '69-PACE' would see my post to get this taken care of. I'm sure he'll see it sometime or somebody will tag him for me. In the meantime I'll search for the post you 'ference' to, maybe there is something there to help.

Hi Dave...been trying for an hour. I read a post on the change that was made to the site password...entered my user name and password I have always used but the message says not correct user name or password...I tried changing password only to see a message that there has to be Human Verification and so far I haven't seen anything for me to verify. I'm a lifetime member as well, but that doesn't mean anything I guess. There was a message of an email being sent out but I haven't received anything in regards to that.

I've been away for a bit and need some help folks. Trying to log in to Team Camaro today and not having any luck. I see there have been some changes since I was last logged in. I'm a lifetime member, or at least I was before the changes and when I enter my site name and password it asks me to verify if I'm real, but nothing is there for me to verify that I'm a human being. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Gary.

Original Cars and Details / Re: Z28 cowl paint (and Z11/Z10)
« on: January 30, 2016, 10:09:53 PM »
See a lot of white striped painted cars, but are black striped cars even painted considering the cowl is black? Just curious. My Silver with black stripes don't seem to have ANY over spray in the wiper motor well area, under the cowl panel. I can't say much for what the past owners of my car did, but the wiper area is untouched.

It was just an observation. :)

And a good one too...I was catching up on topics I missed this past year and a half and found a topic that went off somewhat like this one did in Decoding/Numbers It's great to read about these kind of experiences from others that seems to blend into our hobby in one way or another. Makes for some good reading.

Well this topic took an interesting turn.

Hi Brian...yeah it did, but you know a lot a people don't get that experience working with that kind of production. Whether its cars or tampons there is a lot going on during a production run of any kind and how the process works. I for one enjoy hearing how things work no matter what it is...good conversations ensue.

That's a helluva lot of tampons...  :)   

Just think for a moment...18 tampon making machines with the capability to produce up to 150,000 tampons in an 8 hour shift x 3 shifts x 5 days, add weekends, Saturday AND Sunday to that which was mandatory when orders of Walmart magnitude came in. Playtex only has the one plant that makes them....we stayed busy, none stop, even during breaks somebody filled in. The machines never stop, except holidays and weekends with no work load, and of course the massive crashes those machines can have.
