General Discussion / A sad goodbye
« on: December 04, 2014, 04:27:23 PM »
I want to thank everyone on this forum for all of the help they have given me over the past 3 years with the completion of my 1969 Z 28.  This morning the car was a casualty for a new home.

I have informed the gentlemen that bought it he should join this great site!

Thank you, again, and Happy Holidays to all!

Originality / Chambered exhaust change out
« on: November 14, 2014, 06:25:45 PM »
If I wanted to change out my chambered exhaust with the stock exhaust is it an easy swap?  hangers and route of pipes same as the chambered?  Where would I get5 a stock exhaust which I think is 2 3/4 inch?

Thanks for the help   

Originality / Timing of 69 z 28 302
« on: November 11, 2014, 03:19:04 PM »
I am going to check the timing on my stock 69 302.  Correct me if Im wrong please!  I want to check the timing at 3500 rpms with the vacumn advance off and plugged.  See where the timing is.  If it is at like 28 degrees I now back it down to idle of about 850 or so set the timing at 8 degrees. That will bring total timing to about 36.  Hook the vaccum advance back up and tighten down the distributor and good to go?  Is this correct or am I missing a step?

General Discussion / 2014 camaro nationals
« on: June 25, 2014, 02:10:58 PM »
It was a great turn out!!  With the weather iffy all the cars got in and out of the building without issue.  My second trip netted a score of 97.1 or 4855 points out of 5000.  A lot is owed to Bob Harris, Larry Christensen, Brad Mcadam and Jerry Macneish.  They all helped me over this past year to bring the car to this point.  I will post some pictures of the car at the show shortly.  I like the fact that they were very clear on how certain things should be on this car (1969 Z-28 LA car lemans blue)  It seems that all the discussion and research has clarified just how this car came from LA plant in April 1969


Originality / vaccum hose connection
« on: April 22, 2014, 03:06:02 PM »
I saw a picture of john Z engine and noticed that the hose off the vac advance on the distributor goes to the carb and I am confused.  I thought it went to the metal tube that is capped so it seems on John Z picture of his engine??

Originality / rear signal issue
« on: February 10, 2014, 04:55:39 PM »
The passenger rear signal works sometimes and sometimes not so I tracked the dark green wire to the terminal under the steering column and jiggled it and it works so I am guessing its at the terminal.  Question is how are the wires put into the terminal?  I don't see any screws to hold them in?  are the just shoved in there?  Thanks for input

Originality / horn relay
« on: February 02, 2014, 09:02:31 PM »

Originality / reverse light switch
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:24:20 PM »
I know that the reverse light switch is located on he steering column on 69 z 28's.  My question is when I use the reverse lock mech. and the car is in reverse with the shifter all the way forward my reverse lights do not work.  If I back off on the shifter lever about half inch the reverse lights go on.  Is there an adjustment on the switch to activate the reverse lights when the shifter is all the way forward?

Thanks for any help with this

Originality / wheel trim rings
« on: January 18, 2014, 12:38:21 AM »
just had a set of original rims sandblasted and painted for my 69 z 04D.  Does anyone have any suggestions on installing the trim rings and center caps without cutting up the paint?  my trim rings are original as well with the fingers all the way around.  I thought maybe vaseline might help?

Originality / speedo clips and location
« on: January 04, 2014, 09:50:50 PM »
I am told that there is a speedo clip on the tunnel  ( passenger side) next to tranny and one on the fire wall behind the coil.  both should be silver.  I see 2 on the fire wall, one behind the coil and one about 6 inches towards the heater box, behind the distributor.   I do see in the manual  (M-20 A-9) that they do show total of three, one on tunnel and 2 on firewall.  Which is correcr?  I had my car inspected a short time ago by a legends judge and he says total of 2.  ?????

Originality / air cleaner
« on: December 27, 2013, 05:16:10 PM »
I put the extension on the air cleaner and it fits snug except it doesn't go all the way down in the back where the indentation is ... when I put the flange into the extension the flange isn't snug it seems a little loose... any suggestions?
