Sad to say, but there's always a good possibility that someone has it and has seen your request, but won't say anything to you, because they don't want to give it up. Keep plugging away, though, you never know. It also may not be in the same configuration as you saw it last, or whoever has/had it trashed it and it's a different color. I wish I had my first Z from 74. Had to sell it when I went overseas. 6 months later it was smashed into a tree and totaled. It was a 10 10 Z too, and with the narrow spoiler.

Never understood why Ricks sold out. I always bought from them and never had any issues with parts and prices were pretty fair.

Was just looking thru Jerry M's 2nd edition book on the heater bracket and there are some examples on page 13 and 91 that show brackets that are pretty dark in color. Don't look silver to me. Further in towards the big block section there is one pic where the bracket actually looks as black as the alternator bracket.


Here's a link from the Discussion forum with engine bay pics.

Interesting facts. Way more detail in doing a perfect factory restore if your going that route.

That 70 Z28 is sharp. Was looking at the pics of what is being discussed here and was wondering if the 69 Z28 was the same. Were all the intake bolts painted silver or natural? How about the lift hooks and the bolts on the lift hooks? I'm gonna assume the lift hooks were painted silver, but were any painted orange with the aluminum intake? And 'HAND' painted spark plug wire stands? Probably a paint brush right? I can see brush strokes on the wire stand by the brake booster. Unusual, I would have never thought that. On the lift hook bolts, with a loose washer or washer part of the head?

Something else that caught my eye was the shielding around the points in the distributor. Pretty neat part. Must of had some radio noise or some sort of interference.

I go thru my check twice just so I know I didn't forget one adjustment. Check once and rotate engine a few revolutions with out the spark plugs in, check once more to back up your first adjustment. Always works for me. I don't even have a radio on when I do them, no noise, no distractions, and if I get distracted, I start over.

Hey Jeff, let me come visit man, I can catalog all your stuff for you.
459  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Eaton Fan Clutch, but is it right? on: July 13, 2013, 11:07:31 AM
let me check for your date.


I see it...all the way to the bottom and too the right...

hard to tell from those pictures was looking for a red seal on the later models that look like that.
I have a ton of these will try to see if they have Eaton stamped on the front.

Yes - I have a serious hoarding problem....    Grin


Jeff, Jeff, Jeff...no wonder people are missing their stuff, you have it all. Is that the extent of your collection? You wouldn't happen to have an 834 alternator dated for a 10B 69 Impala do you?
461  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Radiator cap. on: July 13, 2013, 03:34:08 AM
if you don't want to clean/repair the starter yourself, there is bound to be a local shop that does automotive electrical repair..  Check your phone book, or google to find 'auto electric'. or automotive electrical or starter/generator repair shops.   These things are very simple to rebuild... and easy to test if you have a battery .. *G*

Gary, people assume that there are shops that do this kind of work everywhere, but that isn't always the case. I've been living in this area of Delaware since 1974 and have yet to find anyone local to rebuild alternators or starters. I guarantee most just trash the old or turn it in as a core at the local Pep Boys or Autozone. Heck the last and only Speed Shop I have ever seen pulled up stakes a few years ago. He was a friend of mine I worked with in our USAF days. He says he wasn't making any money and had to move his business to his home town in Maryland. Spoke to a lot of shops, and there are plenty and I all I get is we don't rebuild them we just replace them. Not worth the trouble on something that old.

This is why I keep bringing it up here. Somebody knows a place where I can get this done, they just haven't seen my request yet to tell me where to send it. Or they just trash theirs and go buy PepBoys or Autozone. I actually bought a starter to use the parts from it to rebuild mine, but since then sold it to a friend that needed one really fast.

That is great that he gave you an option!  He did an awesome job restoring my cap.   For your car, I agree with you on wanting your survivor parts repaired and not restored. 

Hopefully someone can chime in with advice on who does a great job repairing starters.



I've posted before trying to find a rebuilder I can ship it to. Most say rebuild it myself. Not a problem, but I really really want someone to test it and do whatever else is done to make sure it will work and put on a solenoid as well. I can't do that part. No one seems to know anybody. I picked up a Hemmings to go that route, but was hoping someone here or TC would know someone local to trust with a dated component. No luck so far.

I just stopped at NAPA on my way home to check out the WIP 601598 refills. They're just the all black plastic cheap refills. I still want to see the actual Trico refills to see if they look like the ones in their Classic blade.


The RF-15's I just posted a pic of are correct according to Pacecaejeff. Reply #33 and #37 have pics. the Classics I understand are identical but have no Trico stamp on the blade and the refills may be different. Someone here mentioned maybe we can still get refills from the Trico and that most auto parts store won't stock them. IDK

David...I just spoke with Joe Perri in Chicago, he remembers you. He can do my cap without restoring it for $110.00 and have a faster turnaround then restoring it at $150.00 and possibly 4 to 6 weeks out. Really nice gentleman to talk with so if anyone one out there needs one rebuilt or restored he can do both. I wish other people would give us that option. I hate getting stuff restored to put on my survivor car. Just doesn't look right. I have a starter I just want rebuilt but everyone wants to sell me on restoring it, that's BS.
465  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 12, 2013, 01:53:07 PM
Cool, I guess I scored then, now I have to look to see if my blades are correct, damnnnnn it Jeff. Peaked for 69.
