Originality / Wire information about a power window or power top car
« on: March 14, 2024, 01:15:42 AM »
I have a friend installing power windows in his 69 coupe. There's a wire with a grommet that comes from the inside of the car, through the firewall & goes to the circuit breaker. I went though the AIMs book but couldn't come up with a definitive answer as to where that hole needs to be. Even the chart doesn't show that hole. Power top should have the same hole. It should be 1/2". Can anybody help please & tell me the location of that hole? Thank you, Joe

Restoration / 1969 Z/28 rear stripes

Does anybody have a Los Angeles built 69 Z/28 with a vinyl top? I'm looking for the specs between the stripes & the vinyl top moldings. Thank you, Joe

Original Cars and Details / Yard find 1969 Z/28 RS
« on: December 17, 2023, 12:42:23 PM »
The story of this car has been passed around Tucson for many years. The story turned out to be real. I'm probably the only one who didn't actually know where this car was located. I heard it was on the south side & then I heard that it was on the east side. Somebody was in the right place at the right time with the right amount of cash & it wasn't me. The car has been sitting outside all these year & the Az sun has taken it's normal toll. The car is a 09A 1968 built car so some things are different. The born with engine & trans were still with the car. The new owner just wants to make it alive again, but leave the car as is. Enjoy :) 

Maintenance / Cancel cam spring
« on: October 11, 2023, 02:43:02 AM »
68 w/o tilt, does it have a spring between the cancel cam & steering wheel hub? I've looked in the parts book & the assm manual. My research was inconclusive. Thank you, Joe

General Discussion / What colour is this?
« on: April 25, 2023, 01:07:27 PM »
A friend had an old picture of a car his girlfriend's parents bought in 1969 & traded in 1972. I'm thinking this car is Asure Turquoise. Any thoughts? Thank you, Joe

Restoration / Shock absorber codes
« on: December 05, 2022, 04:13:34 PM »
I'm having Dan Patch restore some 477 & 851 shocks for my 68 Z/28. Was the shock codes for these 2 shocks the same for 1968 & 1969? UN & PS? Thank you, Joe

Research Topics & Reports / Fuel Pump Research
« on: August 29, 2022, 10:07:28 PM »
I'm seeing more & more discussion about fuel pumps & realize we need to know more. I've been researching fuel pumps through as many avenues as I can think of. I've created a list that Kurt will share. What I need is more input from anybody that might have original pumps. The part number, date code & known exact application would be wonderful. Information from just the flange only will always help. The picture is Guy Youngdell's original pump from his 12k miles 375hp April 1969 Built. Thank you, Joe 

Originality / 40727 fuel pump
« on: August 16, 2022, 03:46:58 PM »
Is there such a thing as a 40727 fuel pump with a 2 letter date code? Everything I've observed is a Jullian date which was after 1971. Thank you, Joe

Maintenance / 1967 1968 4 speed shifter adjustments
« on: June 15, 2022, 02:52:14 AM »
On a 1967/1968 4 speed Muncie shifter, what is used to line up the gates during shift rod adjustment? I see a round area & a flat area in the middle. Thank you, Joe

I'm sure several here have compared reproduction spring ring battery cables to originals. Would someone please discuss what was observed? Pictures would be wonderful. Thank you, Joe

Originality / Diverter valve sticker
« on: May 25, 2022, 02:22:50 PM »
When did diverter valves start receiving sticker instead of an ink stamp? My 8/28/1969 396 has always had a sticker. Thank you, Joe 

Originality / 1969 302 valve covers
« on: May 02, 2022, 09:19:05 PM »
Did the 302 in 1969 use small reinforcement plates where the valve cover bolts go like on the steel cover engines? Thank you, Joe

Originality / 1968 Front bumper hardware
« on: April 13, 2022, 06:16:09 PM »
I'm putting a NOS front bumper on my 68 & on the corner bolts there are flat washers between the rubber bushing & the special nut, pn 128144. I could use a spec on that washer if anybody has one. Both of mine are different but one could be correct. Thank you, Joe

« on: April 04, 2022, 10:19:57 PM »
Are these correct for a 1968? Thank you, Joe

« on: March 29, 2022, 11:55:48 PM »
Does anybody know if the bolt (274430) that holds the heat shields on a small block is the same bolt that's used on the oil pan or timing cover? Thank you, Joe
