I had planned to do my first 69 Z in 1978 same as yours but with white around the nose, back into yellow and orange with blue tips. My 3rd kid was born and went to the stock paint scheme after that. It was a 10-10 car. Wish I could have done it.

Here are the only pics I have of my first 69 Z. This was 1975.

take a photo on the same plane as the top of the front tire, or do some measurements from the top of the tire to the top lip of the fender.  Yours looks closer to 'factory' Z28 than James, but the perspective of your photo makes that hard to see.


Hey Gary, you mean mine right?

Here's a shot of my car never been touched height. Looks close to James car height.

The mast I bought has the same plain tip as in Gary's first pic.

Can we assume different vendors then? This would make identifying who manufactured it if there was an issue wouldn't it?
442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Cable Motor Support on: August 06, 2013, 11:33:49 PM
Same here. The 45000 mile survivor 69 Impala I bought has one on each side too. What are the chances the motor mounts are not broken.

If I'm not mistaken, there is a company which makes a lot of these parts which has the name "REPOP"...    Repro' is a more appropriate abbrev for Reproduction, and REPLACEMENT parts are not necessarily 'reproduction' either, if they simply replace the intended function, without a concerted effort to replicate the look, mfg, etc as well.


I found these yesterday afternoon.

One groove on the top knob? So the tip should have a groove then.
445  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 06, 2013, 04:31:09 PM
Thanks John...that's the shot I was looking for. The valve I have, looking at your pic, will be at 9 o'clock where yours is at 3 o'clock and the weight will be pointing the same as yours, towards the fender well. Can I assume that even these heat valves have differences in them? Or will/should they all be the same? I was looking at my survivor 69 Impala LM1 and the valve is installed with the weight on the left as well with rams horn (center dump) manifolds.


Reason I brought this up is because I took the headers off my Z to install the manifolds about a 1000 miles ago and noticed that the passenger head pipe was pushed up tight against the floor. I'm still wondering if I even have a packing donut in there. I'm sure I do since there isn't any exhaust leaks. I hate bring this up but I felt like I needed to. Always had headers on my cars so I have never seen what I need to connect UNCUT head pipes to manifolds before. At least now I know I need to get new studs ( short and long), 2 packing donuts, 2-2" head pipe extension tubes and a flat gasket. I should be all set then.

And yes the masts themselves were the same between Camaro and fullsize

Thanks guys. Really good info. How's it going Warren? I didn't think there would be any differences really but just had to ask. I'm still curious about the tip though. Shaun from the SS427 website had one I bought that has no groove on the tip and was wondering why. Looks good overall and the tip looks the same as the ones posted but no groove. Just one of those curious observations I get. Should there be a groove or not? Probably need more info.

This website is great. I can't say enough about all the help you guys have given me in the past even for the common parts that fit other vehicles, this is the place to find stuff out. No messing around here, just straight to the point.

Thanks. Something I did notice looking for a mast, some screw in and some slide in the base.
448  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 06, 2013, 07:46:21 AM
Any way to tell if this valve is stuck? The more I think about it, I noticed that at the rear tips the exhaust flows better on the drivers side than passengers. So I am thinking mine might be stuck?

I always thought something odd was going on there. In the wintertime I noticed how steam would be coming out more on the driver side exhaust then the passenger side on a lot of cars when they were first started up and run in the morning. Would see it a lot with dual exhaust, not at all on single exhaust of course.

Here is a pic of Jano's and the one I picked up for comparison. Note his valve weight on the left and mine on the right. So the valve weight on mine will point to the front of the car and his will point to the rear. Different for 68 and 69? Here's a question, how is the valve oriented when installed, with the arm on the engine side or the the fender side?
450  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heartbeat City reputation on: August 05, 2013, 08:20:16 PM
sure repro would make more sense, but seems like repop gets used more often. Same thing though reproduced parts


I know, I'm just busting your hump BULLITT...just fooling around...yeah, repop sounds so...teenage, doesn't it. But we're all still young right guys?...Guys?
