Hey guys. I finally got the side post battery cables I ordered form Lectric Limited if anyone wants to check them out.

Here's a  link to the Yenko site post I have.

I heard that the 'Glyptal' paint is expensive. The  '74 350 block I'm currently using in my Z isn't painted but the valley has been smoothed out really nice. It's been a few years since I was in there but I know the sides are done for sure just not sure about the bottom part.

Hey Dave, have you been to the Yenko site? Here is something you may be interested in if you haven't seen them yet.

Dave, What Gary said. I remember reading in a HOT ROD mag back in the early 70's that had an article in it about prepping a block for faster oil flow back to the pan and those 4 drain back corners were smoothed out and screens were epoxied in to catch debris. If I remember correctly there was something about smoothing out the valley walls all they way around too. As a matter of fact the 350 LT1 spec engine in my Z right now has had the valley smoothed out. I'm assuming done by the previous owner.

Hey Dave, like Mike says what is considered late? Did you ever get my PM saying I found a set of spark plug wire shields? Just wanted to make sure your still not looking for them.



The ACC on the front tag bracket was on later production. Mostly all front tag brackets have a "C" stamping on either side of the lower mounting tabs, where it bolts to the valance. The same goes for the rear tag holders. The earlier holders have the 608 part number towards the center and the later has it up higher with the ACC stamping also.

Anyone have a source for that hardware? I was looking at the AMK website and the numbers in the 69 AIM don't show up. UPC 1 B3 page 34. Number 6 on the list 9427601 up top. I picked up a delete plate and don't want to just screw anything in there.

Gary, What you have should be fine. JM's book indicates rear leaf springs tag is BM silver paper with black letters. Front springs YF is light blue paper with dark blue letters and EY and YH is light blue paper with black letters.


Can't tell the letter colors from the pic on your YF tags are those dark blue or black?
563  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: new guy intro on: May 23, 2013, 08:59:35 PM
Yeah, they were there when I bought the car, it's a GM hood too. I removed the pins and put a rubber cover over the holes and put the shields back on so water don't get into the hood there. I was thinking of using the hood pin kit that the 70 Chevelles use. I kind of like that look with the coated lanyards.
564  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 22, 2013, 10:37:33 PM
Sounds like a plan Dave. I need to sell this block so I can afford a $1500.00 alternator for my Z. There's a  9 E 23 837 being offered on another site but man you can't catch a break in this hobby the way these prices are. The average schmuck doesn't have a chance.



Hey Gary,

just been looking for something closer to my build date, seller asked me to make him an offer, i did, not sure if he will accept, so your not off the hook yet, lol sorry for dragging this on.

i also found another motor built two weeks before my car.

right now waiting on the above motor, it might have some interesting history, i'll share after purchase or i pass.

was told uship is very reasonable and easy.

Thanks
Dave

All these pics and information is just fantastic. First chance I get I gotta pull the SR carb and compare the differences. I'm curious about the base plate differences.
566  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 22, 2013, 09:22:38 PM
Dave, good for you man. Hope it is A OK. I was wondering how to get mine to you in California if you bought it, but now I don't have to worry about it. I still need somebody to buy mine though.



will work on getting more pics of vin, but think i will move forward with purchase, thanks guys

Heat tube? That's automatic trans cars I think.

Not a problem Dave. I ordered the side post cables this past weekend from LL. I was thinking of posting some pics if anyone was interested in looking at them when they come in.


Hello 69Z28,

Sorry for the delay; I have not been on CRG for quite some time.  I purchased a Delco ACD 78-7yr battery, item #19001631, professional grade car and truck, maintenance free battery.  Itís a 770 cold cranking Amp (CCA) rated and has never failed me for the seven years it has been in use.  The first one was purchased in 2000, and sure enough, 7-years later in June 2007, I purchased the 2nd unit. I use a battery maintainer if the car sits for more than 6 weeks or longer.  I try to at least drive the car once a month (give or take a few weeks) on a 10 mile trip during the winter if the streets are dry to keep everything in good working order and keep seals lubed. 

My side post negative cable is marked 6297650 AU, the positive cable is 6297683 AR, as noted in the AIM, Section 12 A11 on page 162.

Dave

Thanks John for replying. I thought I was on my own and when looking at the AIM I wasn't completely sure. Never thought I would get away from hedders for iron manifolds.

Anybody know if this is correct?
