So what is a paperweight worth? My 307 is a 02d build. My dist works, but the date sounds good for a spare.

Another foot note, get an old distrbutor shaft and make an oil priming tool out of it.  You can install this shaft in the end of a drill motor and stick it in the engine into the oil pump.  Turn the drill on and you will build oil pressure this way.  Watch your gauge as you are doing this.  The oil pressure will come up slowly.

Thanks, but I'm just looking for an oil primer, my dist works (or at least worked) last time fired. I was just wondering if I should use the break in oil after letting the engine sit so long.

I am planning to re-fire my motor for the first time after several years. Will hit the Englishtown swap this weekend and look for an old distributor to prime the motor with. Since the motor has not turned in years should I also be using the rotella?

I beleive a 2004r is a bolt in swap, and gives you a 4 speed overdrive with a locking converter. Should also allow you to go back to original with ease.

I was thing the same. My commuter has no visible antenna, and reception is excellent, not like those junk wire antennas on the inside of the windshield I remember from the 70's.

Just my opinion, while all paperwork can be forged, and todays technology makes it even easier, at least if you have a Canadian car you can request the paperwork from GM. If you have purchased a car with forged GM Canada paperwork and the seller has not vanished, you should be able to pursue them in court.

I have no paperwork, but for a base 307 glide, who needs it.
Good luck,

Tom

I don't have that on mine, but may not be a good reference as a previous owner replaced entire front clip after a crash. He tells me though all parts came from the salvage yard.

Steve,

Did you check the Be Cool web site? If they don't post directions find a support e-mail link and ask for them.

Good Luck,

Jerry,

Thatnks for the info, I was thinking more of the heat shield effect from coating the underside of the intake. Not a great important concern, just kind of wondering.

Thanks again,

Tom
1076  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ceramic Coating on: March 01, 2007, 09:34:27 AM
Jerry,

Would ceramic be any better? (Iron or aluminum) I'm not thing so much of appearance, as keeping the intake temp down.


Thanks,

Tom

I do not trust ANY insurance company. I have had prolonged dealings on more than one occasion after being hit (last time a kid ran a light). This was needed in order to receive fair payment - enough to repair the damage. I would lean toward specialty insurance for collector cars. Mine is not yet on the road. I would also READ THE POLICY. No matter what your agent tells you, decisions are based on the actual policy as written.

Or you could stick with Canadian sold cars where documentation is available.

One reason to change the vin would be to recreate a better car that has been totaled. Like a Z from a 6 cyl, etc. Another would be to register a stolen car.

You may be able to read the partial through the cowl. After all these years lots of thing may have happened.

Good luck

Tom
