Those numbers look good, just keep an ear open at highway cruise. My 302 would exhibit a slight ping accelerating at cruise (highway speeds 70 mph). So I put a mechanical limiter on the vac can to keep it a max 10 degrees. Hopefully you won't have that issue.

Jeff good job on that eccentric bushing, there is a ring groove on there that you could snap ring it on. Now when that vacuum can is hooked to full manifold vacuum keep ensure you don't have too much total advance at cruise (pinging) if you do you'll need to limit your vac can with a mechanical stop. I have a sun distributor tester so it makes the whole set-up a lot easier.

I stuck an alpine in the glovebox, cut the back out and mounted a bracket inside for front support then added a pass-through infrared remote transmitter. Attached an ipod hookup and the stereo remote are all that's on the center console, two 6X9 JBL's in the back and a center pioneer front replacement speaker nice and neat and the system sounds great.
Original 69AM still in the dash no worky but who cares.

I can tell you I used Arthur Gould Rebuilders here; http://arthurgouldrebuilders.com/general/water-pump-restoration/
They did a great job on my unit.

Oops, maybe you could get them for $75.00. Donny did they resleeve your single pistons?
I haven't seen anyone specifically say they sleeve single piston units.

Bill;
 Did you see the pair of calipers 5463633 dated on ebay, the buy it now of $75 a pair and he has multiple dates.
Mine are too severely pitted for a rebuild they need a sleeve. So these would be a great set if you can figure dates you have/need.

So are the guides drilled out and these new guides added? Also looks like its got scew in studs, what are your plans for rockers the stock "O" rockers?
Those new studs can cause geometry issues if they have the guide locked in the wrong position. I'd try to find a set with original studs (pressed) and no guide work. But thats just me, lots  of extra effort downstream dependant upon what you are doing.

I bought the cable kit that comes with cable and new knobs.
It isn't exact but beat having broken knobs.

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Felpro head gasket on: June 26, 2012, 11:16:49 PM
Yes and stock they will still be in the hole by some amount. I thought I had heard before most stock motors had the pistons .005"~.007" in the hole.
I would not select/order a head gasket without taking the measurement, but you could mic your old gasket to see what you had.
My 302 runs well with my set-up and has no pinging at all rpm ranges on pump gas. 
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Oil on intake gasket on: June 26, 2012, 11:04:38 PM
 Yes I coated both sides at the intake ports with Permatex Aviation sealant, and used silicone only around the water jacket.
 This is one of the best articles I've read for inatke install and what I followed; http://home.teleport.com/~cosa/vap/tech/inmanifold.htm

I would recommend having your machinist check your intake and retrue as required, heck I'd have him true it just because you don't want to find a leak after you've got it all back together. It looks like a vacuum leak to me. How did your plugs look? If you were having trouble with low vacuum at idle, and fouling plugs you found your culprit!
 Intake; I used the Felpro 1256 intake gasket it was the correct size for my 472 intake runners its grey and looks close to an original. I also used the Intake Manifold Gasket Alignment Tool posted over at Camaros.net.
  Post for intake tool here: http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=121095&highlight=Intake+Manifold+Gasket+Alignment+Tool
Use Permatex Aviation Form-A-Gasket Sealant Liquid at your intake runners, it won't be effected by fuel or heat and will ensure a lasting seal.

Heads;
 I used the .028 Mr. Gasket Part Number 1134 Ultra-Seal Head Gaskets as my pistons averaged .010" to the deck. QUENCH is best between .035" to .044".
How far in the hole are your pistons on average?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Quadrajet Restoration on: March 26, 2012, 07:51:46 PM
I have used Eric at Vintage Musclecar Parts, great service and the best restoration from appearance to performance.
He discussed everything in detail needed to restore, as well as kept to the price he quoted upon receipt and teardown for estimate.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ignition timing on: March 02, 2012, 05:33:10 PM
you need to bump it a little more counter-clockwise the distributor is a worm type gear and the shaft will rotate clockwise when dropping into place
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Hog rings on: March 02, 2012, 12:37:24 PM
Yes you can, but its tough to get the ring to grab the metal webbing while holding the center pleat tabs to it. If you use string to hold it, then ring it it's much easier. The ring needs to pierce the tab and grab the metal webbing, and if you're trying to push and hold the cover as well as make sure it will grab the metal webbing its pretty difficult.
