Funny, Bill, just got finished sharing the same sentiments with a friend.

Intrigued me being within last 1500 cars made. Which got me wondering, I wonder if that car was made without ZL2 because inventory was depleted? May never know? Obviously the car has been through the usual Camaro butcher mill over its life.

I know of a guy who has a mint one offered on

On the one you reference above, Ed, the middle picture shows a black lid? FYI, I have one of those air cleaners , as, well. Not offering it for sale, but if a guy wants to pm to look at either, for reference of course ;), go ahead.

Best penetrating oil is 50-50 acetone-atf. Heat is your friend. Take one of your freed up pumps apart to get an idea how it comes apart & where things are hung up on the pump you want to use, kind of a trial run. I say this as this 69 pump you are probably being very gentle as not to damage in anyway, like pry marks, cracking , etc... it may take the coveted Ford tool (a big hammer) to persuade things?

Everything lines up as an end of Dec 66 car if it was a Norwood built car. But you say it says Los. Best to post a pic of the tag. Something is amiss.
Try to get a pic of the hidden VIN under wiper cowl panel.

1969 - Orphans / Re: 124379N640398 entire Z drivetrain on eBay 69, no 68
« on: October 27, 2018, 12:22:15 PM »
Unfortunately I just saw this post. I have owned the original car for about 10 years. It wasnt a wrecked vehicle and still retains all of its original sheet metal. I purchased the car with a supercharged 468 BB and an M21 trans. The car and this drivetrain were about 200 miles apart from each other. Im sure the person that purchased the drivetrain would want more than I paid for the car for it! Thats how it usually works. Thanks for starting this post hopefully I can get in touch with the purchaser and work something out.
On the fortunate side, you found this site, someone was thoughtful enough to post the info, the drive train still exists, the eBay ad still comes up when you click the above link, you can get a hold of the seller by that info...sounds like your luck is changing? Welcome aboard!
I am curious about the 68 this engine came out of? Back in the 80s, one of my buddies put a whole drivetrain from a 69 Z in a Rally Green 68 RS. He was/is in N. Ky. Doubtful the car he got the drivetrain out of and drivetrain itself, both, found their way to Missouri?

The A head are flat across the top, whereas the M has a recessed top. I was under the impression that although they are the same length bolt, the A was for the aluminum intake 396-427 engines (possibly 302, not sure)?

Maintenance / Re: 302 Valve adjustment
« on: October 22, 2018, 01:34:35 AM »
Not sure how much run time you have on this new cam, but before I would touch the 1st adjusting nut I would make note of which valves are noisy. This can be done when re-adjusting and noting the loosest valves, ie most clearance. You can also do this with a section of hose, like a couple of feet of rubber fuel line or similar. Start engine with v covers off. Put one end of hose to your ear and other to each valve. It will be easily apparent the culprit(s). Regardless of method mentioned, the reason to note which valves is after you re-adjust, I would set up a dial indicator on those valves and note full lift. You may want to record this and if there is significant (.050) change from stated lift on cam card, I would want to determine if you are wiping out a lobe, having premature cam failure from break in.

This tag came with the car's paperwork.  Not sure what it is.
That is an early 65 Mustang/ Fairlane manual steering box ID tag.

Because your rear end has limited slip, aka posi-traction or posi for short, the E further describes what brand of limited slip unit was installed in your housing. In your case, E is for Eaton.
