541  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Timing is out on a new motor. on: May 31, 2007, 07:34:50 PM
Here is the latest.  Brand new ZZ502 with brand new Holley 850 cfm Model 4150 (part # 12366996) that supposedly has blow out protection on the power valve.  While trying to time the engine, I had one very loud back fire followed by a couple of minor ones.  The wax in my ears fell out on the first BANG.  The engine ran horribly immediately and the plugs were badly fouled.  Finally, the engine would not even start and would just sputter and backfire.  I cleaned the plugs and put them back in and was able to get the engine to run again, though still rough.  As stated above, the power valve in the carb has the blow out protection.  How good is this protection.  Could the power valve still be messed up and need to be replaced?  How do I check the power valve to make sure this is the problem?  Finally, any other ideas on what could be wrong and what I should check or try to do?

Thanks guys,

Steve

I am not sure of the third gen seats, but I put a set of fourth gen in my 69 and the only mods I had to do was the rear outside brackets needed to be turned inward and the rear near the tranny hump needed to be drilled out.  They fit fine in the front and the height was decent.

It is a holley 850 dp.  What should I check to find out if the problem is the power valve?

544  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Timing is out on a new motor. on: May 29, 2007, 08:58:42 PM
I installed my new engine and it ran fine.  I have never removed the plug wires since new.  During trying to time the engine I had a huge backfire after.  Now I have to set the timing to where the vacuum cone hits the carb just to get it to start.  It still runs rough and backfires slightly.   The engine timing acts like the distributor still needs to move even closer toward the carb just to run right, but O can't move it any more as it is at its limit and hits the manifold.  This is a brand new crate motor.  I don't think I could jump the timing chain on a new 502 with no miles on it and only about 10 startups (no?).  It ran great before the backfire.  Anything I should check?  I am sure if I moved all of the wires over one on the distributor it will run fine again...but this they are now set at the factory plug ins and ran fine before.  Any ideas.

546  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need Camaro Pics for the Homepage for June on: May 29, 2007, 08:06:15 AM
Hey guys,

I need you to send me pics of your cars for the homepage for the month of June.  Especially 67 and 68 (why am I always begging for these years?).  C'mon you 67-68 guys...I get more 69 pics, but your cars were produced twice as long.  So, send em in.  I need all years please.

Send them to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

The first 67 and 68 I received gets to be on the home page for the entire month of June.  How cool would that be. 
547  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Serpentine belt setup for a big block on: May 14, 2007, 01:38:24 PM
Okay, here is the solution I used.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&viewitem=&item=330111429548

I found the brackets all over the place at the local junkyard.  I got mine from a 90's blazer for $40 for the brackets, idlers pulley, other pulleys and tension pulley. (Bring a steering pulley puller).

Anyway, the setup installed quite easily and I have a very nice stock look to my 502.  The setup also fits nicely with just enough clearance for the dual spal fans and the be cool radiator. 

If anyone else if looking for an inexpensive serpentine setup for their BB, I do recommend this.

548  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / What is the purpose of a fuel pump relay for an electric fuel pump? on: May 09, 2007, 02:33:57 PM
I installed my electric fuel pump and wired it directly.  It works fine.  Why do I need and what is the purpose of adding a fuel pump relay?

549  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Late model wiper motor fit on a 1969 Camaro on: April 28, 2007, 09:50:16 PM
Does anyone know if there are any late model wiper motors, something with several speeds and delay, that will fit on a 69 Camaro at the firewall?

If so, let me know.  I was looking at the motor on the blazer and it looks close.  Does anyone know of a tried and true motor that will work without having to spend $300 for the DSE motor?

550  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Huge Muscle Car Stash Found... on: April 27, 2007, 10:36:46 AM
There is a similar situation here is Florida not too far from where I live.  There is an old warehouse (similar to an airplane hangar) near the airport that has looked abandoned for years and is overgrown with weeds etc. The warehouse is locked up and there is a fence around the entire lot.  During the hurricane in 2005 the fence was blown over and the garage door was blown in.  I became nosy and checked it out.  Inside the hangar was about a dozen cars.  Inside was a 63 or 64 corvette convertible with a/c, a 57 bel air coupe, an old ferrari (dino 236?) as well as other old cars.  All covered in years of dust and looks as if they had not been disturbed in years.  I asked around and found out the owner is out of state and the cars are not for sale.  Some day someone will get the opprotunity to buy these cars after the owner dies and the family just wants to get rid of them.

I have a convertible SS and I have the exhaust bracket.  Isn't the bracket there on all SS cars regardless of convertible for not?

552  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Noisy electric fuel pump on: April 26, 2007, 03:10:39 PM
Okay, I have come up with what may be an answer to my own question and would like an expert to verify my solution before I impliment it.  I notice the pump quiets down a little after the car is running.  The pump is at its noisiest when I first turn the key before the motor starts.  So, if I add a return line, will this quiet the pump down?  My thinking is that if the pump is not trying to push fuel that is blocked by the regulator and lack of carb not taking it, then the return line will relieve the pressure that is built up thus making the pump "happier" and quieter.  This logic works for my wife, so maybe it will work for my fuel pump too.  Does this make sense?

If so, please let me know.  If I don't get a response well then darn it...I'm going to do it anyway and find out, so there.

Thanks

Steve
553  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Noisy electric fuel pump on: April 24, 2007, 08:58:37 AM
I installed a new Holley black pump (140 gph) on the rear frame rail of my 69 Camaro.  I understand that there should be some "whining", but wow is this thing loud.  It is way more than just a whine.  Is this normal?  I installed a rubber pad between the frame and mounting bracket but this did not help at all.  Is this sound normal or should I exchange it for another one.  Also, is there any other electric pump out there that is quieter.  If so, I will return this one and get one that doesn't sound like I have a mariachi band in the trunk.  Unfortunately, the 502 does not take a mechanical pump.

Thanks,

Steve
554  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Camaro pics for homepage needed for May on: April 19, 2007, 06:18:22 PM
I am in need of your Camaro pics for May's homepage.  I have a couple of 69's to go but will need some in the months to come.  However, I really really need 67 and 68 pics.  So, the next 67 and 68 pics I receive will get to strut their stuff on the homepage for the entire month of May.  So send em to me at the following email address and don't forget to include your full name so we know who's cool ride it is.

555  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Serpentine belt setup for a big block on: April 19, 2007, 06:14:55 PM
I purchased a GM serpentine belt setup (part # 12498733) for my 502 big block in my 69 Camaro.

http://69.20.110.81/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=26946

However, the AC sits too high.  I would like to keep a stock appearance and don't want any chrome or billet stuff.  Are there any recommendations for lowering the bracket or maybe a bracket kit I can buy and still use all of my pulleys and components. 

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.

Steve
