Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Craig Fisher
« on: August 10, 2018, 12:53:32 AM »
Craig and I were friends. He was an underrated racer and a quality human being. He earned the first points for Chevrolet in the Trans-Am by virtue of his second place finish at Daytona and the first points for Pontiac when he raced a Firebird in '68. He will certainly be missed.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Unusual valve covers and intake ??
« on: August 05, 2018, 12:10:49 AM »
It looks like an Edelbrock SY1 Smokey Ram intake manifold that has had the lettering ground off the lid prior to polishing it.  I have never seen Moroso valve covers in that style before.  Kind of an interesting look.

No documentation as being a real Z-28 but may have real Trans-Am history.

Was in the well known multi-car crash at Road America in 2005.

Great to have you back, Mike.  I understand your issues with Photobucket.  I paid the $400 just to keep the pics alive here but I'm very relieved that they got wise to that lunacy and made the cost more manageable.

Yes, it is a nice car.  Of note, it originally had the U57 tape player on the front of the console. When restored, the owner at that time preferred adding tach and gauges. It was not a gauge car when new. A 6K redline tach was evidently installed but that is not typical for an LOS car built May and later, which this car is.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: JL8 / J56 4-wheel disc racing brakes
« on: May 26, 2018, 04:48:12 PM »
Thanks, Nick. These are what was removed from a 4-wheel disc service package rear axle assembly. A road racer would not have had a need or desire for a parking brake system.

So, what year was it that the cross ram was first run on the car? I had previously thought it was 1970 but was it earlier?

So when you got it to work did you get it hooked on the core side first and then tap it into place on the other end or was it vice versa?

Glad you got it to go on Bill.  I'm having a radiator redone and I will have to do the same thing.

Very cool.  First-gen domination, I love it.  Thanks for posting that, James.

General Discussion / Re: motor mounts
« on: May 18, 2018, 01:15:42 PM »
There are three ways to go with the motor mounts. Actually four if you want to go with a solid mount. There are valid reasons for using the original mount with no recall cable. Give the original poster the info and let him make the final decision. That is how I see it but obviously you don't. There's no need to bicker back and forth anymore about this as far as I'm concerned.
