Lynn, that's the set up I currently have , a repo battery, but it only had a 400 cca battery inside (surprised it had enough power to crank it over when it was cold out) but I'm on the fence as I'd like to have a battery with 700 to 800 cca's. Does the Braille battery have enough power. I read the specs and they advertised 550 cca

My old reproduction battery is just about done. I have seen some guys used toppers over newer batteries and had good luck . I want to keep the original look to the battery and I want something reliable. Just wondered what tips you guys might have.

Danny I was having very similar condition on my 4150 carb. It sounds like a vacuum problem. Mine turned out to be caused by my power brake booster, it had a bad front cup seal.

I need to replace the rubber seal that goes on the front of the power brake booster (directly behind the master cylinder). Does anyone know where I can find this part?

It turns out the owner passed away and the family is selling his cars , 2 El Caminos and 1 Camaro. I  don't think the family knew much about the cars. I  passed on the info from the members to him, thanks guys.

I have a friend looking at a 67 Camaro. The seller claims it is a real Z28, I'm attaching a picture of the trim tag and one of the car. I did do some decoding of the tag and it looks like it came with a 3-speed floor shifter for M15 or M13 ( 2B ). I not familiar with the 67 trim tag and  I was wondering what you guys think of this tag.

As I mentioned in a prior post I'm not sure I'm reading the guage correctly,  I tried to post a picture of the guage but the file is to large. There is two sets of numbers on the guage, the outside number  reads 20 , the inside number reads 8. Apparently I read it wrong. The car is all stock and I've owned it for 32 years

Adjusted the floats, the rear was too high and the vacuum needle is bouncing  between  19 and 21. I  could be misreading the guage,  what should be a normal vacuum reading for a 302?
