Originality / Correct 1969 Windshield washer repair kit
« on: October 27, 2017, 03:28:56 PM »
Wanting to replace my broken washer pump nipple assembly with a new kit. CI has a kit that is supposed to be correct that is black. CC offers one that says it is correct in white plastic. My broken one is black. On an older thread in the Restoration area shows the CC whole pump with a black nipple assembly. Which one is correct.

Engine does read about 80 lbs. while running. After shut down the gauge read about 15 lbs. Oil line is metal. The other one failed because something on the gauge broke on the back. I will have to dig it out and look.

Just noticed my oil pressure gage started reading about 15 lbs. with the engine off. This is a fairly new gage. The one that this one replaced did the same thing. Anyone else have similar problem and is there more than one supplier?

Did see Brownell, but called Allegheny Arsenal and ordered their Zinc Parkerizing kit for $29.95 + $13.00 shipping. Shipping was fast. Will see how it works.

Did get a call back from the older #. The lady told me they closed down the business(Owens, Group), due to too much red tape involved.  Wished they had taken down their website. I did find a couple of other sites that have similar products, Allegheny Armory and Brownell. Will look into their products.

Anyone know if this company is still in business? Called the # on their website and got a recording that it is no longer a working #. Found a # from '09 on this website. It did ring and got a generic VM. Left a msg. Doing the research, sounds like a good product, inexpensive and easy to use. Is there another company  that offers the same type of product?

Think I found a shop locally. They say they can repair the heads and suggested I could have the water jackets ceramic coated to ensure a better seal. They didn't think I needed to have hardened valve seats installed. Has anyone had water jackets ceramic coated? Would it be better? Also, I have heard for a long time about hardened valve seats being necessary when running unleaded gas. Any thoughts?

Both of my heads are cracked and can not be repaired. Checked several Camaro sources with no luck. Does anyone have suggestions? Getting desperate.

Saw this car on the net 2 yrs ago when I was looking to buy. The seller stated she wasn't sure if the engine was #s matching, but there was a 50/50 chance it was. She was asking around $50 K. Emailed back, was not paying that price for a car that MAYBE #s matching. Never heard back. She also has a Chevelle that has the same paint scheme.

This was on an EBay ad for a supposed Z/28.

What kind of manifold is this? Would it be stock? The reason I ask is, I have the same thing. I was going to order a repo set from one of the online companies, but if is correct then I will hold off. The right side looks like it could be for a standard engine with a heater box.
