Originality / 1968 Z28 smog pump assembly
« on: December 12, 2018, 12:57:41 AM »
1968 Z28 Camaro fiends,

I have a complete 1968 smog pump/diverter assembly that includes a spacer between the pulley and the pump. It's perplexing, as this pump/DH diverter/bracket/hoses/Whittek clamps/fittings appears to have never been apart, very pristine and dated correctly, with the exception it has a "116" lo-po pulley instead of the "522" deep groove, and it has a spacer between the pump fan and the pulley. I've read in at least one back thread about the possibility of an occasional "116" pulley making it on to a Z (parts shortage on the line ?), but my real question concerns the spacer. Considering the lower performance V8 water pumps were shorter as compared to the "326" Z water pump, did the "taller" Z water pump require the spacer (either pulley) ? I cannot find any reference in the assembly manual to a spacer on any 1968 application - hence the question.

Regards,
Steve

Originality / 1968 Z28 water pump bypass fitting
« on: August 25, 2018, 07:29:11 PM »
I've searched the threads and never found a "definitive" answer - is the hex style fitting or the square style proper for a June '68 Z28 326 water pump bypass hose fitting ? I have a 1/2" NPT GM NOS square style fitting, but afraid it was released as a replacement or maybe was used on L79 motors prior to '67-'68 MO applications. Opinions ?

Steve

General Discussion / JH code 12-14-68 block on eBay
« on: March 10, 2018, 04:02:57 PM »
Someone's original JH 375 horse block is on eBay - I can see a VIN, but not distinct enough to read. This is extremely close to the build date of the spare JH I have, within a day - 12/14/68 is the build date on the pad.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Camaro-396-375-GM-BBC-Block-GM-3955272-Dec-7-1968-Date/282845039444?epid=656664690&hash=item41dae0cb54:g:~isAAOSwNDJagNpb&vxp=mtr

Good luck if you are looking for a match !

Originality / X66 standard trim
« on: February 01, 2018, 05:44:03 AM »
I would like to resurrect a discussion we had about 5 years ago concerning quarter panel molding usage on X66 SS cars compared to X22's. Is there (documentation) of an option listing that verifies the mandatory installation of quarter moldings ? I remember the statement about all SS's had them, but I've seen several examples over the years of cars equipped like mine - vinyl top, not Style Trim, no quarter moldings. Could my 12A build SS be something other than an X66, or maybe just one of those line errors that appear from time to time ?

The pic of the Yenko storage lot that circulated years ago shows a car (which I would guess could be an X44) with a vinyl top and no quarter moldings, no Style Trim either. I seen a good number of Yenkos without them. If someone has that pic on file, please post it again if you don't mind.

Regards,
Steve

General Discussion / Norwood film documentary
« on: July 03, 2017, 02:38:04 AM »
Anyone seen the advertisement of the Norwood film documentary in the works ? All I could locate within the database was the discussion surrounding the "Echoes of Norwood" book in 2013. This postcard-sized ad I have lists the website www.NorwoodLegends.com , doesn't appear connected with the "Echoes" book, but I did see a mention of this documentary in the original 2013 thread, nearly the same description.

Just curious -

Any one catch this particular car today ? I just happened to turn it on right at the start; the mid-auction talk up by Jerry really boosted the sale. Pretty car, too - very well presented. Wonder who was the lucky (past) owner ?

For anyone that needs one and has the dollars - from my home state, sorry to say -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1968-Z28-Camaro-302-290hp-engine-distributor-1111467-/122398613945?hash=item1c7f86a1b9:g:wngAAOSw5cNYhUfk&vxp=mtr
