Originality / Re: 1968 Z/28 distributors 1111266 to 1111467

Been a little busy with other things going on. Motor built If I remember correctly April 15th, but sorry didn't have original distributor in it. I had original 467 distributors with dates 8A5 8A10 and now I have 8B8 which is closer to my 04D build date. Now it looks like I guess all those dates would be OK for my car??

It is pretty simple to hook up the gauges if the factory wiring did not work.
You are forgetting that it's a printed circuit board. It's doable, but not sure the cluster connectors are the same and it would require some wiring thought to get the pins right. Might be easier to put in a Firebird harness.

That's what I was thinking, because the Camaro gauges were on the console, not the dash. Then I would have to buy 2 new harnesses? I know it could be done.  I think I will just leave it stock, all Chevy

I have a 68 Firebird gauge cluster and always wonder if I could install them in my 67 Camaro. They don't have a mechanical oil pressure like a Camaro, and all the gauges are in the speedometer cluster itself, not like a Camaro where they are on the console. They are all electric

Wow that looks Great! That's a lot of work, but it really looks unbelievable. Would you happen to have a picture of where the metal brake line attaches to the rubber flex hose in the rear? ( from outer rocker and the bend to the brake hose bracket) I bought new line kits for my car ( 68 Z) and the fit is terrible, not sure where I have to bend them?  I also had the brake and fuel line clips plated and powder coated ( by JM a while ago), not sure which ones go where?? I know Chick has them in his post but not sure, the AIM doesn't look correct either?? Just a little confusing, Most likely just me

Thanks guys.     Learn something new every day. A while back I talked with I think Apple hydraulics and a couple others and nobody wanted to touch them.

I won the bid on them, most likely just going to sit on the shelf. I can't believe no one else bid? They look real. I sure they will have to be rebuilt, if anybody ever figures out how to rebuild spiral shocks??

In judging how many points would be taken off for a all painted orange bell housing? Any body have picture of a original painted bell housing?

I am pissed at myself that I didn't think to hook up my pressure washer. 3200 PSI!! It would have given me the extra 20 feet of hose, AND been SO much better than that garden hose. I can't believe I didn't think   >:( >:(  .. D

Don't get mad at yourself. Just think your here to talk about it, your girlfriend and cats are safe also. That's most important! Your car made it because of your fast thinking, you must have had a lot going through your mind at that point. You are a very lucky man! Just like mentioned those rims and other parts damaged were your surprise birthday gift you didn't receive yet from your girlfriend. Hope it all works out. Keep us informed

I have a 8B8 for my 04D car. Closest I've found in 26 years. I had a 8A5 and a 8A10 sold them a while ago. Let's see what other dates come up

Originality / Re: 69 Z28 Crankshaft number
« on: April 16, 2015, 02:23:53 AM »
So do we know what the difference between cranks is?

Per Jerry MacNeish's '69 Z/28 Fact Book...

"The 1969 302 crankshaft (part number 3941176) is identical to the one used in the 1968 model year (large journal).  This is a tuftrided forged-steel crankshaft."

Paul

Does that mean a 3279 crank is the same as a 1178?? Keyway and all? And Just different balancers and timing chain covers???

What balancer is on it?? 1968 or 1969? Balancer date?  How did they set timing?

I had the mattress at the time and didn't have a rotessire so it worked. It did take a long time to clean all that off. Do you think the undercoat was factory? I have nice clean floors now, no way would I want to cover them up again
