I would consider a video camera. You can record comments as you go. I would also consider using a lookout...

Good luck,

Tom

I would think the COPO's were the top factory 1st gen, followed by the Z.

Kurt, I figured that. when I said I havn't seen one, I was refering to the Burgandy Z with red stripes.

According to the info packet from Chevy, section iii page 45, "striping color application chart" the standard stripe color for a burgandy (67) regardless of interior color or vinyl top color, standard stripes color would be red. 

There is a notation, # White stripe when Special Performance Package is ordered.

I havn't seen one.

Who is planning on a run out to Carlisle? Since I have never met any CRG members (to my knowledge), is there a CRG event or presence there? I would love to meet up with others. I am planning a day trip on Saturday. Hope to meet some of you there.

1071  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / 307 TPI conversion on: April 30, 2007, 01:16:19 PM
I am planning to add TPI to my 307. From what I have read so far it looks like an 86 Camaro 305 or 350 system is the best starting point. This should bolt up to my existing, but not original heads. Has anyone here done this? Can I use the fuel tank pickup and lines from an LM1 or L48 to add the return line that will be needed for the fuel system to make this swap functional? Would you use an in tank, or external fuel pump? I would prefer to get this right the first time. I will also probably swap out the glide for a 2004r with the locking converter.

Does anyone near NJ or planning to hit Carlisle have what I am looking for?

Thanks,

Tom

Had the same problem from the factory on another car. I wound up using two sets of gaskets. Not right, but functional.

1073  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Noisy electric fuel pump on: April 27, 2007, 06:06:57 AM
I would think a return line connected to a modern regulator, to allow excess fuel to return. I am looking to efi my little 307, and will need to plumb a return line for that. This may in turn require tank mods. Please keep us posted.

Good luck

Just figured I'd be at the swap anyway, why not grab an old distributor while there. I presume any old small block dist will work. Thanks Jerry for the idea.

1075  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: distributor decode on: April 25, 2007, 12:57:31 PM
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.

Jerry

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?

1078  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: rebuilding engine on: April 04, 2007, 02:00:15 PM
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.

1079  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Antenna options on: April 04, 2007, 01:31:51 PM
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.

Good luck, let us know how it goes.
