General Discussion / 69 z28 choke
« on: March 11, 2016, 12:09:51 AM »
Hey guys,
    Well, I decided to put my 69 Z28 back to stock.  Put the dz motor back in last Saturday and fired it up last night.   Started right up. I set the timing , broke in the cam and it went perfect.  Drove it and when it got up to temperature the car started to run rich and was trying to stall.
   I pulled over and the choke was closing.    Its like it works in reverse.   As the motor warms up the choke coil pushes the choke rod up closing the choke flap.   I THINK the coil should be up and pull the rod down as the engine warms opening the choke flap.    The repop choke kit I bought was ordered for a 69 302.   Could they be packaging them wrong?    Please help !   Thanks !   Steve

 looked at a car today that was built 11D of 1968 .    54xxxx VIN.   A cowl hood yenko/copo car.   How can this be a legit car with this build date/VIN?
   I thought the first cowl hood was on the first ZL1 which I believe was a January car.    Could this be legit?   Steve

Restoration / help with 69 Z28 shifter boot
« on: November 02, 2014, 07:29:38 PM »
 Hey guys.  I'm trying to button up my interior on my 69 4 speed car.  No console.   I cant find a view on how the shifter boor goes.   My car has the original  floor and the 4 original screw holes still in it.
    What I need to know is ...   does it go retainer on top then rubber boot flange then carpet then the second rubber flange on the boot then the floor?   There are 2 rubber flanges (or lips) on the factory shifter boot.
   Any help please??    thanks !  Steve

Restoration / 69 front door glass help
« on: June 07, 2013, 11:24:49 PM »
     hey guys.      working on my 69 Camaro that I bought in boxes last year.    The front doors are missing the 2 pieces that protect the glass as it slides up and down.    They are steel plates , one on the front and one on the rear of each door.   Held on by two small screws on the top.  the door fuzzy actually covers the screws and they are covered with a material that looks like canvas.     Anybody know what they are called and where they can be purchaced?      thanks!   Steve

Mild Modifications / my day 3 Z/28
« on: December 29, 2012, 11:30:49 PM »
   Well.  My matching number DZ motor is on the stand freshened up and restored.   Last month i decided NOT to go 100% correct.   I found some NOS 15x4 cragar s/s wheels finally and have ordered the 15x10's for the rear.    Original 70914X 11A X77 car...  documented with 25,000 original miles. cortez silver cowl hood car.    I found a mint GM flat hood to cut a big hole in.    It should be in paint next week and am painting both hoods and putting the original cowl hood in the loft.    Custom 70's style street freak paint.   I'll post the paint pictures in the next few weeks.   be nice..... :)   Steve

Originality / delco metallic drum brake shoes
« on: September 30, 2012, 11:00:26 PM »
  hey guys...

    Maybe sombody can help me.  I bought my 69 z28 5 months ago as an unfinished project.  It had been in storage since 1974 !  the previous owner told me he installed ceramic pads and shoes years ago on the car.  (never used)   when i got the car home and removed the drums i saw shoes like i had never seen.
    the it had square pads as liners.  Odd to me.   They have slight surface rust due to the age but are stamped delco.     Were these ever installed in a factory car???
     thanks !   Steve

Originality / help with correct 69 steering wheel
« on: September 22, 2012, 09:27:13 PM »
   Hey guys...   When i bought my 69 z28 it had an aftermarket steering wheel and need to install the right one.    My car has the base black interior.
       Wood trim around the wiper and headswitch light area and wood trim on the radio.   No wood trim on ash tray door or glove box area.    It also has no passenger side grab handle over the glove box.     I'm guessing (and wanting) it came with either the standard or wood wheel.     If I install the standard wheel will the horn shroud have woodgrain or just plain black?      thanks !       Steve

General Discussion / 69 cortez silver Z/28
« on: April 20, 2012, 11:33:02 PM »
Hey guys. 
     I bought a 2 owner 69 Z/28 a couple months ago from a guy in long island NY.  He purchaced the car as a theft recovery with 3,000-4,000 miles on it.
    it was stolen in mid to late 1971and was sold new at village chevrolet in queens.  He said they got the intake,carb,ignition,trans and front seats.   Maybe someone here knows the car??     Base Z/28 cortez silver.
   Factory cowl hood, std black interior, no console, tach only.  am/fm and spoilers.       thanks !   Steve

Decoding/Numbers / 69 Z/28 firewall crayon marks
« on: April 08, 2012, 07:34:43 PM »
Hey guys.

   I just purchaced  25,000 mile two owner Z28 a few weeks ago.  The second owner managed to slowly pull it apart over the last 35 years to make it a
 "world of wheels car".     I stripped the firewall of its gloss IMRON paint last week and found 3 places where the original crayon marks were. 
        I'm not sure if the original marks were under the black firewall paint or on the top but they are noticeable on the bare firewall now.   One directly behind the distributor says " OK" .    to the right of that  ( passenger side ) it has   " N10 "  and i found out thats dual exhaust.    and a little farther to the right is  " D80".
   Spoilers..      Pretty cool .     Steve
