Mild Modifications / Re: Vintage Air - Overheat
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:48:57 PM »
I think some air shrouds had a special seal added to keep air flow going through the radiator.Your added condenser not only restricts flow a little, in AC mode your are kind up preheating the air. I also run 160 tstats and drill a couple 1/8 holes in them for air pockets. It seems to help. One of my cars after trying everything I had to add the water wetter stuff. It did lower the initial temp at 5 degrees.

If it is constant pretty easy to find, if is intermittent might take a while. If it is shorted some testers beep when used. I connect it and while it is beeping go check the various devices and if the  beep varies I know I am close. For the hearing impaired a light works also.

Originality / Re: Dealer Help:

Wonder if the dealer code numbers had any type sequence as to when assigned? It would seem that if were retired then GM could reference the number for past dealers.

That might be good Bently. In an effort to create the ultimate garage I made mine so nice it is not fun anymore. No greasy parts laying around, no leaks on the floor, no smell of fuel ect. Just ain,t like the old days. Heck I can,t even crush out a smoke on the floor anymore.

The pics in the link remind me of another post I made. I was wondering why a COPO would have chrome valve covers not being a SS. I think it was said that by 69 all big blocks got chrome but these pics look like they only did chrome on the SS big cars. I don,t remember seeing a 335 427. I wonder if the cam could derate HP that much or was it something else? The 390 HP cam sounds pretty mild to me.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: New member trying to find out what I have- Barn Find
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:23:03 PM »
The VIN numbers do tell you that they are in the lost NCRS numbers so you might not waste your time. My 12A car does have the X code behind the seat but since the seller made a big deal of it I am not positive it was done at the factory.

I think seeing the (crud) is neat too. Some of the "survivors" I see could use some. And I agree, never scraped off greasey crud and found rust.

My plans are to get the 427 tripower setup that I have already rebuilt on my L78 for the cruise ins. If things stop popping up maybe this weekend. Also have a golf ball size dent in the Z (yes I did it) to have fixed and painted.

I did not see any engine pics. Would be interesting. I thought I read someone the L72 solid lifter was not available for the 69 big cars.

It may be many variations out there. Since serious racers used Traco engines, had several third members and gearboxes I wonder why they would even use a real Z28 since they did not need anything but the body. I would bet guys like Penske made their own out of whatever 12 bolt was easy to get. With only what? 216 factory JL8,s we may never have a actual this is what they ran.
