Restoration / Re: 67 SS emblem measurements

Kevin- You can get emblem template kits from Classic Headquarters. Their web address is I looked up the part numbers (you have to buy the whole kit, but it's only $22.00). For 67 SS350, it's W-702. For 67 SS396, it's W-703. The templates give dimensions for vertical and horizontal. I got a set several years ago for my 68 SS350. Worked out really well. Hope this helps.    Larry

Wayne - the Z looks great! I don't think I've heard it since you did the motor work. If it ever stops raining maybe we can take 'em out. The '68 is ready! I'll try to "keep up" LOL.       Larry

Jerry- Good luck finding the Stratocaster you want, I hope it works out. I almost bought one in '72, when I first started playing guitar, but bought a new Gibson SG instead. I had no idea vintage guitars were bringing that much!    Larry

 Dave, when you bought your new springs, did they come with a protective coating, such as cosmoline? If so what did you use to strip the coating off? I bought new ones recently, was told not to use anything too harsh because of the separators between the leaves. Didn't mean to hijack the thread. Thanks in advance.     Larry

Hey Jerry- big time congrats! That Z is some rocketship. Looks like all the hard work paid off. See you at the Nationals.     Larry

Mild Modifications / Re: 3" exhaust systems

William -     I think a 2 1/2"  mandrel bent system on your Z would be the way to go. That's what I have on my '68 SS with a 355 (.030" over 350). It sounds great and makes really good power. I concur with JohnZ about losing exhaust velocity with a 3" system. That would KILL your torque, not to mention fitment problems. With the system I bought from Torque Tech, mandrel bent, 2 chamber Flowmasters, all 2 1/2", the car made 385 rear wheel horsepower and 448 rear wheel torque on the chassis dyno.     Larry

I've been using the 2131 Super Comps since '84 and never had an issue. Never dented or "massaged" a tube or anything. I only wish they made them in stainless. Not happy with ceramic.     Larry

Jerry reskinned my 610 Z intake about 10 years ago, it's been on the car since '02, and still looks great. Definately recommended!     Larry

Good luck finding an original. I don't know the part number, but got a real NICE repro from Rick's a couple years ago for the front of my '68 SS. The part no. for that one at Rick's is SB-15, and it's about 95 bucks. Looks great! Hope this helps.   Larry

John-  If you're looking to buy everything new, Wheel Vintiques has the steel wheels you want and Rick's First Gen has the caps. You would have to call Wheel Vintiques and talk to a salesperson for the exact wheel, backspace, etc. The part number for the caps at Rick's is TR-117. Maybe WV has the caps too, I don't know. Just make sure when you order the caps, ask them if they'll fit those 15" wheels, because originally they came on 14" wheels. Sorry to be so longwinded, just trying to give you all the info I could!  Good Luck!  Larry
