General Discussion / Preserving seat belts
« on: December 07, 2023, 09:59:30 PM »

I have an issue with my seatbelts which others might have had also, I recently noticed that the Hamill stitching label on one of my seat belts was starting to come apart which caused me concern so I decided to check the condition of all the other labels hoping that the others were much better and notice a few more were starting to come apart due to age and condition. Is there a way to save the labels as this issue now is of great concern as I have tried to keep the car as original as possible in my 22 years of ownership.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.


Hello members, over the weekend I came across an original 1967 SS 396 325hp 4sp car. So I approached the owner after talking to the owner and inspecting this beautifully restored Granada Gold with Black vinyl top car I noticed on the trim tag 767-H denoting it to be a black deluxe interior car with the rare bench seat with no headrest, so I pointed it out to the owner as it presently has front buckets seats and console about the bench seat and it turns out that he has store the bench seat which according to the owner is in very good form.
Now I am very curious to see how many of the 6583 bench seat cars built in 1967 came with a 396 and 4sp.
Thanks again for any help,  John

General Discussion / low pressure in fuel filter
« on: September 11, 2022, 09:33:09 AM »
Hi All,
I could use some help with diagnosing an issue with my car if anyone has experienced similar problem and how you ended up fixing it.
My Z28 when I start it the fuel filter is full when the car warms up it empties and stalls, I have changed the fuel filter I have also checked to see if the hose from the tank is cracked or leaking and blown air through lines in case of blockage.
I have disconnected the the fuel line from the fuel pump and cranked it with good amount of fuel collected in a container. I have also changed the Fuel pump still the same issue. I have just remover the fuel pump again to check the lenght of the push rod it is 53/4 inch long, any help would be appreciate.
Thanks in advance

General Discussion / DZ suffix ?
« on: December 12, 2021, 04:51:37 AM »
Hi, I am looking at the Meccum Kissimmee Auction in January 2022 and seen a Daytona Yellow Z28 Lot R176 for Thursday 01/13/22 !
its engine suffix is V0820DZ although from the 8 onwards the font size is larger than the others is that normal? the car is built 09/22/69 which would make it 09D are the dates ok?
I looked at my engine and it is V0902DZ and built 09/15/69, any insight as to Lot R176 being ok
Thank you again for any input

General Discussion / 1969 Van Nuys built z28
« on: October 25, 2021, 06:32:12 AM »
Hi all, I am looking into a car for a friend but  I am not sure about a couple of things,
(1)  trim tag states 04C   and on same line M 572 which I believe is the 13th day of April 572nd car produced that day on Van Nuys built cars.
(2) The engine is V0418DZ  so 18th day of April,
(3)the VIN numbers fall in the April range of vin's 
(4) the M20 has P9D07A 7th of April, and  the 12bolt is 12 Dec 68, my thoughts are that some thing is not adding up.
Can an issue with production cause engine to have a latter date prefix,  than the trim tag date?
I don't have date code cast number of Block yet but it is a 0010 Block with information that has been passed on to us
Any info would be useful as I always thought that engine prefix can be up to 4-6 weeks before built date.
Thanks in advance
