General Discussion / Re: 1969 Z28 Oil Question

Please keep your original dip stick.  Look at the dip stick you bought and see if it says MS or SE under oil type. SE would be later. Had the same issue with an original dip stick I needed.

My car is also a Canadian car and was sold by the dealer without the smog. Holes plugged. Original owner, a woman, confirmed this.

All the other guages work though so I didn't think it would be a ground

Restoration / Temperature Guage won't go off cold
« on: September 26, 2017, 07:35:24 PM »
Restored my car with a new engine wiring harness. All guages worked before disassembly.  After re-assembly, the original temp guage doesn't work. Stays on cold. Goes hot when grounded.  Have changed out the temperature sender twice with no teflon tape. Just bought a repro fuel guage for the car and it doesn't work. Any suggestions as to what is wrong ?

General Discussion / Cross Ram 1968 RS Z28 at Mecum

Does anyone know about the Tripoli Turquoise 1968 RS Z28 that sold at Mecum - Pre-production or experimental Cross - ram and original Goodyear tires.  Sold for $90 k, surprised with those rare options that it didn't go higher.

General Discussion / Re: Recommendations for Painting Metal Dash

Top part of the dash should be "suede finish" SEM makes a product that doesn't do a bad job - it is their textured paint.  Front part of the dash could use their trim paint or something a bit glossier

Knowing the casting date helps in a situation where the block has been decked. Obviously, not totally but the right date should help.

Don't know if they have a phosphate kit. But Caswell Plating does have black oxide, bluing, and cad plating. Number is 855-CASWELL or look online for Caswell Plating, Lyons NY

Does anyone know what the correct color or finish should be on an original TH350 vacuum modulator ? I know the TH400 modulator should be black ? thanks.

Great Discussion. I realize NCRS accepts re-stamped blocks in their judging. I was wondering what members thoughts are regarding Camaro judging. Z28's, COPOs,  and L-78's were raced or at least driven hard so their engines and drive trains have been replaced in a lot if not most cases. The 1967 and later Norwood trim tags identify what came with the car.  What about the owner of a COPO or Z/28 who wanted his car judged in Legend Concours or another top flight event and had a block stamped to match the car ? What sort of penalty should be assessed if the block casting and date code are correct but the pad restamped ? Or the pad restamped to match the POP ? And should a heavier penalty be warranted if the restamping is not disclosed ? Again, these are cars being judged, not being marketed. And I realize that a lot of cars will use their scores to justify a higher price in the market at some point.
