1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 18, 2014, 07:59:20 PM
Hmm doesn't the Z28 smog pump have a spacer under the pulley also for alignment?
Never have seen pics of an original set-up showing correct parts for alignment.
Anyone have pics and dimension for pulley spacer as well?

That curve sounds good, didnít here you say what vacuum you get at idle or advance setting without the can. Should be 8*-10* initial, distributor all in by 2800, Didnít hear what PVís your running but they should be half the vacuum reading at idle. What PVís did you install? Also I run a .031 pump shooter (the stock .028 shooter had a lean off-idle transition with 3.5 PVs) 72 primary jets with 76 secondary jets.
Sounds like your distributor is real close now, carburetor needs addressed.

Gary;
They make wire foam cutters that use a battery to heat the wire and cut have you thought about one of those?

As 1971ls6 says; "I have a distributor machine and without it you cannot get it right without a lot of trials in the car."
It is a tall order with lots of trial and error to do one on the car, not impossible but my aching back would kill me with all those over the car adjustments.
Interesting though hardest time I had with my 480 distributor on my Sun machine was getting it to hold and come in at 1050 rpm These 302 cars like to idle at 900rpm plus and you can't have any curve come in at idle or it with dither like the dickens at idle. So if you can't set one up I'd say send one out for a curve. Mine is 1050~1100 to 2800 rpm 12 degrees or 24 total bushing restricting slot. Advance 12 degrees and distributor vac can with limiter for 10 degrees more.

Nice butternut 68 Z/28...
Yes you want a re-curve, so do that he should know 302 curves.
My curve is 1100 to all in at 2800 rpm. He should be limiting the slot for 12 degrees at the distributor or 24 degrees mechanical advance.
You want something along those lines.

Ok I'll take a shot at value. Looks like a few original bits and pieces are changed.
Assuming its had some parts changed over time and is missing a few original items (Chrome fender supports, non-original alternator etc.)
I'd pay around 53K, but that's just me cause I like a car to be as close to original as possible and I'd pay more for originality.
Still it is a very nice 68 Z28, so whoever gets it will have a nice car from the pics!
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 10, 2014, 07:27:03 PM
So, if I put in my request for my documentation on 6/4 what should I expect a check back saying we no longer offer this service?
Hmm. Will they finish existing orders?

What source are you using? The ones at Heartbeat don't list O.D. My D&R 2 1/4" aluminized system didn't come with them, so I have none installed.
Does NAPA source them? I'd like to buy a set and put them in.

So Kurt any idea what a 1/2 code "build" day of the month would be on a 10E Los Angeles Camaro?
I have sent you my 69 Z/28 data previously.

That's it, it will seal perfectly with a fresh set of fittings.

Gary;
When I called Edelmann for 1/8" dbl. comp. ftg. source they sent me to:
B.E. Atlas Co.
4300 N Kilpatrick Ave
Chicago IL 60641
phone 773-283-2550

They do have a website; http://www.beatlas.com/contact/default.asp

Gary;
Edelmann shown here probably has more than one source. That's the numbers on my sales receipt.
They are who Edelmann sent me to buy. See pictures
sleeves

all three edelmann looks same as original

larger nut style

Gary;
Don't want to lead you astray here, just remembered some additional info. The Post 25 fitting 16001 is a larger nut style 3/8" and not the same as original. The only place I could find the original 5/16" nut style shown on post 26 was from: Part number 0650  111200 B.E. Atlas (773) 283-2550 in a pack of 5. Didn't want you to be disappointed when you get the new one, cause it looks different, it will work fine its just not the same as the original.
