16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Wire files?? on: September 02, 2014, 10:26:02 PM
Hey guys, can anyone help me out with something?? I have several oem 69 silver grills that I can use as parts to restore and make a whole grill for a spare, in case I ever need one. I've been wanting to section out a few places from a good grill center with a broken surround as replacements for a grill that has a broken section or two with good surround and was thinking if I could find a wire file maybe the size of a guitar high E string I could file those sections I need to make the repairs. I've been looking off and on for a while and haven't found anything like this. Anybody ever seen something remotely like this? Seems to me the thinner the better to section out what I need.

Went for some dollars even with all the thing wrong with it.

Was there a console with gauges? If so what oil line fitting set up is installed? Seems to be some speculation on what is actually correct.
It's a console with gauges.   I'll have to check out the bottom of the gauges Tuesday.  That will be my first chance to look and report back  Smiley


What fitting is installed on the back of the engine block Darrell?

Here's a pic I got years ago from JohnZ, I believe, that shows where the wires should be positioned on the distributor from the factory.

21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Harmonic Balancer for 302, need the circumference? on: August 18, 2014, 10:44:09 PM
Danny...I did mine the same way your doing yours....with everything installed. Once I got the circumference measurement of the balancer I cut a piece of the firmest string I could find in my wife's sewing box, marked it and carefully taped it to the balancer. Used my hand dandy remote starter and clicked the engine around while I was under the car and made my marks on the balancer then. It worked for me. It may not be totally precise but I haven't had one problem adjusting the valves. When I do remove the engine I will do a more professional job or should I say accurate. Actually all I did was put a dot on the outside edge of the balancer large enough to see it when the engine rotated. Have you tried the timing tape? I did. The first time I cranked on it the tape disappeared. Never saw it again. I'm still chuckling about that one. As far as being painted or not I hardly believe there would be that much difference if there was paint on it. At least with the balancer marked in quarters you should be able to adjust it enough either way to adjust the valves.

It is the move away from liberty towards something else that concerns me. Apparently a lot of people do not see what is happening this way. Time will tell if I am correct.... I hope I am not!

I'll subscribe to that statement.

And to change that subject back to the original posters lament on the mags going away...Reading books and or magazines and even writing letters is going away. I have to admit myself that I don't write letters home anymore like I did as a kid and the last big hardback book I read was about J. Edgar Hoover 10 years ago and I have hundreds of books like that that I ferociously read when I was younger. Just this past June I subscribed to MCR and Hemmings MM and got issues sent to me back to May and haven't even touched the August or September issues yet. In the past those mags would have been read in a matter of hours on the same day delivered and I still wouldn't be satisfied and screaming for more. At my age I just don't read anymore. Could it be the baby boomers are at the age where it doesn't matter anymore? Based on what I got from my own kids they complained relentlessly if I said pick up a book and read it and out of the many grand kids only one 14 year old grandson reads what I read as a kid, the rest don't have a clue what a book or mag is. The 2 biggest bookstores where I used to get my books/mags locally have packed up and are long gone.

25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Grill emblem placement for a 1969 Z/28 RS vs Standard on: August 13, 2014, 12:09:45 PM
Here is mine close up. The emblem has not been removed by me since I bought the car in 2000. It has 3 repaints on top of original but I don't believe the grill has ever been stripped and repainted, so it may never have been removed but I'm just guessing that.

Here's the open air element cover and base.  Not to familiar with these but was told it's original also and that the markings on the inside makes it a hard to find "correct cover"  Anyone have input on this as well ?  Probably still the original flame arrestor as well   Huh

Thanks


Nice find. With the 03E build date the air cleaner lid has the straight silk screen print instead of the curved. Are we getting any closer to finding out when that change was made? I have a curved print lid which I don't think is correct for my build date but don't have enough info to say it is or isn't. Were they both used throughout production?

I bought a black flocked one in the 70's just for that reason. I took a long slow trip to Memphis, Tn one week end and ended up scratching almost all of it off by the time I got there with my finger nails. I was running 4.88's in my first Z so it took a while. Just a tad over 1000 miles from Dover AFB. That black fuzzy stuff was everywhere on my console.

Old thread, but... thought I would share for database info and tracking. I just acquired an AJAX K-AX-8 off of a 12C Nor. car. Guy down the road has a X22 vert. Keeps replacing all the original stuff with reproduction parts. His loss, my gain,IMO. He is making a Pro-Touring car out of it, WTF? His plans are to replace all the GM sheet metal with new repro. Hope to score some more stuff. No pics right now as my laptop is down. Got other parts to post later.

WTF??? We need that little guy laughing slapping his hand down. But this guy will have to do---->  Shocked B, you crack me up.

Id be running from this 1. Stamp is V0610DZ and its a "618" block with a C-12-9 cast date?
Sorry, I do not see a "V" in the stamp. but a "T" as Gary points out. Very rare, must be out of one of the 40,000 made after the first 20,000,lol.


Yeah...looks like a T.

Shoot - mine looks better, $5.00 at the local swap meet. I sold one a year ago, same shape, for $40.00 plus shipping. I know they are aftermarket; like my Hurst "T" handles, they are vintage cool to me.

The older white ones look like ivory when they acquire enough skin oil -

That's what mine looks like. No faded black in the lines. I have a white Hurst T-handle with the big H and the  1 2 3 4 and the word Hurst in the center and the same in metal that I kept from my 69 Judge. Love those handles. I was wondering if anyone ever flocked a Hurst T-handle like the ones from the 70's. I have one I would like to do black.
