Originality / stamp and font good?
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:37:16 PM »
This block was in Dallas Texas, it is not the block from my "maybe Z".  it was listed in 68 orphans a while back and Kurt said its legit so i purchased the block to put in my car if and when i can prove its a Z28. i absolutely trust Kurt, however just recently a guy also with some stamp experience tells me he thinks its an obvious re-stamp because the  3 in the 403 has a rounded top and the 68 stamps had a 3 with flat tops ? and he notes the mis-aligned vin numbers towards the end.   just looking for honesty, if its fake its fake !
I have already had at reputable machine shop he check the deck height and told me this has never been decked and is still flat. so could you restamp a block without first decking it? would it not leave traces of old vin if you didnt?  thx

have a blessed Easter tomorrow!    HE is risen!!!!!

Does anyone else ever look through the orphans section that's appropriate for your model and leave depressed? Lol I look everyday for anything that might be associated by vin to my car and there is nothing, yet there's thousands of items with everyone else's vins.....   I'm just crying in my cereal!  Thanks for listening.

Originality / GT stamps
« on: November 25, 2017, 11:12:59 PM »
I was stripping the paint off of my spark plug towers and noticed it's stamped GT in very small letters? I know the alt bracket has the GT.   Is this common? Is there a company GT that makes brackets for GM back then?

Restoration / Leaf spring restoration
« on: November 19, 2017, 03:15:26 PM »
Has anyone tried dissassembling their leaf packs and cleaning and rebuilding the pack? I think I want to but not sure the new clamps will look right or how hard they are to reclamp?  Or should I just leave them as is?

Can anyone post a known original pic of the gt stamping and any ways to tell real from repro ?  Kinda in a hurry I'm bidding on one that says original gm but the guy selling really doesn't know.  Thanks in advance

Originality / cooling fan and sticker mark on trunk deck
« on: October 28, 2017, 09:21:58 PM »
this fan was in what was left of my trunk in a box with other odds and ends parts, not sure how to tell if its right or a production date, all i find is an "H" on the hub area and "front".    the deck lid has glue for a sticker, im not sure if it signifies anything or if they all had a sticker placed there?

Originality / Help with Z/28 proof?
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:18:16 AM »
Ihave new piece of evidence maybe? Iwould like some expert opinions as to NCRS production date and how it correlated to delivery to the dealer.   as many of you know I have a 68 SS or Z/28, thats all i can prove, I have posted many pics on here of the correct Z intake, oil fill tube, oil cap, carb, exhaust manifolds, fan blade, distributor, rear end, firewall w/ muncie hole, 4 spd hole reinforcement plate, thermo housing, oil pan, dip stick, valve covers, DF rims etc etc...all dated before the manufacture date and by your opinions within the normal range for the cars date.  but the MO block and trans are not with the car.  a forum member saw some of my posts and sent me some original sale ads from Bill Conner Chevy Inc. the NCRS tells me thats where my car was shipped to. One of the ads is an Action sale ad thats for second week of August! my car was finished at GM on July 10th, the ad clearly shows a 68 Z/28 in British green for sale !! in my crazy mind that may very well be my car ???    anyone offer any info on time between completion to delivered?

General Discussion / 68 drivers side dual exhaust riv nuts
« on: September 15, 2017, 08:07:19 PM »
My 68 "maybe" Z/28 has the dual exhaust rivnuts, but the upper location has the bolt/screw head broken off? Its small !   I've tried drilling it carefully with no luck I'm afraid my bit has already got into one side of the threads on the rivnut.   Not sure how to proceed?????  Help I know we should not cuss on here but holy @$%%#$!@₩&%

Originality / M22
« on: September 14, 2017, 02:52:45 PM »
Can somebody explain the process of how a 68 camaro would get a m22 from the factory? I was under the impression All 68 Z cars received the m21?  I've run across 2 68 Z28's with supposedly factory M22's both are dated early to mid 68. One is march, the other is June?  Niether One has a partial vin ????

Originality / 68 z28 correct throttle rod

Originality / couple of questions !
« on: July 08, 2017, 02:14:06 AM »
thanks in advance for your answers!

1. I notice HBC has a 5 blade 4 rivit 68 Z reproduction fan blade. It has the H stamp and all, obviously its way cheaper than the correct fan. I cant tell the difference? Is it different and how??

2. Is the correct radiator tank codes for 68Z    OD and IH ?   I have looked at the chart it seems all small block manuals are the same ? i thought the Z had some special radiator?

3. Team camaro has a 4053 carb for sale, states original l78/ z28, has couple of pictures and the front bowl has some funky little vent valve on top. mine does not have that? yet I posted pics on here and everyone says mine is correct?
