General Discussion / 1968 Camaro Z/28 on Hemmings
« on: January 16, 2024, 03:07:55 PM »
Wow they took those stripes to the MAX!  ha ha  Never actually seen them go all the way under the rear window trim and over the cowl vent under the front window trim. Crazy... Even under the hood on edge of cowl. Might as well go right over the engine onto the rad support. Why wouldn't ya look online at a million pictures to maybe get an idea at least. Guess they didn't like it.
Looks like maybe no deep groove pulleys. 3/4" x 1/2" bushing in water pump, truck pump. 5 DF Rally Wheels go with it? No smog shown.
Pretty clean car. Of course, NO stamp pics or paperwork shown.  Danny

General Discussion / Headers Needed
« on: January 15, 2024, 06:42:07 PM »
Looking for a set of headers that are of good quality that are KNOWN in the hobby to be able to clear a power steering box without mods. Even pictures showing them installed would be cool. Car is a 1968 Camaro with a 327 4- speed...  Thanx Danny

General Discussion / 1968 M20 with BV
« on: November 30, 2023, 12:15:54 AM »
Could you have a 1968 Z/28 with an M20 and a 4:10 BV rear axle ratio?...
My friend said there is no such thing. Because you would end up with a granny low. And that 4:10 would have to have the M21 from the factory?  Danny

Do we know what the finish was on the metal dash top between the pad and the windshield on 1968 Camaros? Thanks... Danny

General Discussion / Speedo Cable Color
« on: August 28, 2023, 09:27:13 PM »
I was told by a friend that I was traveling 75mph. My speedo said 65. He used a satellite application on his cell phone for the speed and pulled up to match my speed. It was EXACTLY 10mph fast. What is the speedometer cable tooth/color. It has a black one I think with 22 teeth in it now.
 Transmission is a 4-speed M21 with 3.73 rear axle gears. Tires are Good-Year Wide Tread GT with 3.73 and only 100 miles on them. I see MANY colors and charts online ALL giving different teeth counts with the same color? ... Danny

General Discussion / This stamp look ok
« on: August 28, 2023, 05:35:40 PM »
My friend is looking at this car to purchase/restore. He sent me some pictures. I don't have the knowledge. Block looks sand blasted and re-stamped? My luck it's all original and a FACTORY re-stamp. Either way, I don't like it... Opinions... Danny

General Discussion / Oil Pan Plug Gasket
« on: July 15, 2023, 12:46:10 AM »
This could be a dumb question.  ???
 Are the oil pan plug gaskets all the same for small block and BB? I saw some for sale online and the application said only fits a certain BB engine. I need 3 or 4 for small block. Anyone have a part number or supplier that has a direct replacement that we know looks like the originals? Danny

General Discussion / Holley Carb Issues
« on: June 10, 2023, 03:52:15 PM »
Well, I took a ride of about 50 miles in one of my cars. Car ran great! 10 days later, got in and fired it up and it won't idle. It WANTS to, but dies in about 10 seconds. It's a 4150 780 Vacuum secondary. If you try to keep it running it does a suck-air kinda thing and goes shss shss shss shss and dies. I got in and revved it out of the idle circuit and kept it running and went down the road. Pulls great, floored it a couple times and it went like hell. Came to a stop sign, down shifted, got into first and pushed in the clutch and it died right before I came to a stop. When you try to start it, it takes ALOT of turning over without giving it any gas and then finally it starts. I looked in the carb and it is squirting gas in well. But that's when I am racking the throttle. But after letting it go back down to idle it dies in a few seconds.
I pulled the carb. Pulled the bowls and metering plates. Installed new 6.5 power valves, cleaned it all up and blew it out. Installed all new gaskets. Set the float bowl height. I didn't do anything else, like pull the needle and seat etc. I reinstalled it and it did the EXACT same thing. I did something I don't normally do. And that is pull a part from a great running car and use it for testing. BUT, I did that to isolate the sitch, and BINGO it ran great. Drove it 70 miles to car a show and back, with no issues. So I KNOW it's the carb.
 Question is.. What do I do next. I don't have the knowledge for complete tear down rebuild. I would rather not send it out for a rebuild and have a 100K car sitting dead for who knows HOW LONG.. Hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. HELP!!! Danny
