If I was to look for those parts would they be hard to find? I have 5 sheets a friend gave me in 1975 from a HOLLEY CARBURETION VARIABLE SPECIFICATIONS AND PARTS counter book , page 81 and 82 showing the 4053 carb numbers, page 240 that has the exploded view of the 4150 TYPICAL VIEW ILLUSTRATION NO 34-1, page 241, 243 with part names and index numbers.

Fast idle cam is (136)41R-539 and the fast idle lever is (6)4R-852. The missing screw is not found. Just wondering if if I should waste my time on this or let it go.

This is the reply I just recv'd about the carb, no pic was supplied when I asked. Actually I tested the reserve ($500.00), yeah risky I know, and it hasn't been met yet. Not sure if I should trust it.


This is it's original 4053 Base plate. It has 3 vacuum sources, an angled 1/8" port directly under the primary float bowl which was used for the choke pull-off and/or smog system vacuum source, a 3/16" vacuum port on the right front corner for the vacuum advance, and a stepped 3/8" port on the right rear corner for the PCV hose. The Fast Idle Lever is missing, the Factory Screw is intact. Found one here on ebay for 10 bucks.

Go to your auto insurance company and just add liabilty insurance for it. I think liability is minimum for all states.

I was thinking Microsoft Paint would help with resizing but it doesn't. I use 'Irfanview' to resize my pics. Works pretty good in a pinch.



Gary,

   Took a couple of comparison pics between my Z11 and open element Z wings, but the file size is way big to attach. Definite difference between the two - if I can figure out some way to shrink 'em, I'll send them to you.

Regards,
Steve

ok, so a 934 wouldn't be out of the question? I'll send an email to find out about the missing pieces and the base plate.

NOTE:
I sent email just waiting for a response.

I believe Pontiac used it as well. Seen it on a 67 Firebird and a 65 GTO. Unusual color and unique to say the least. You have definately got to be confident in yourself for a man to drive a car that color as my dad would say.

Yeah John I made a copy for reference while I was researching these used emblems I just bought. The fender emblems are good candidates for restoring, really nice chrome but real faded paint. I just need to find what is being done to restore them and what paint. Not much of anything online about this subject and it seems like most if not all aren't doing it themselves.

Photos of my originals are in this thread:

Thanks fellas. I am thinking of putting in a bid for this carb. What do you think? I'm really looking for a 943 but haven't found a core yet in 14 years of looking. Everyone wants to sell me a restored one and I don't want a restored one. I want the patina to match what I have.

687  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 grill and tailpanel emblem question. on: April 14, 2013, 08:58:30 AM
So far it appears there have been differences in IDing the emblems, whether they are original factory or service replacements, what part of the year they were installed, and how many molds with differing numbers, white spray in the '28' instead of silver. Might be a good add on to the CRG information base. Not sure if this is something that would need to be addressed. There are posts asking about pepple grain and non pepple grain steering wheels, which was a surprise to me. Never even noticed it until it was asked.

I still have to pull my grill emblem off and check. probably do it sometime today and post what I find. For the tail panel emblem so far 8745869 is on the 3 I have.

689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / What carb date for my 06A early June Z on: April 14, 2013, 12:54:11 AM
Hi guys. Is a 4053 dated 934 too far out for my 06A early, as in 653104, June Z? I'm looking at one now I would like to pick up if the date is ok.

My oldest, 39 lives next door, he's a keeper. My middle daughter, when she can say go F yourself to me in front of my grandkids, well ,I don't have to say anything there, and my youngest son, well, he's a traveler, he's hiding in Oregen from all his pregnant girl friends. Sorry, I love em but I had to give them up when they hit 18. Heck they know/knew it all by then. At least they don't bother me too much about money, just lots of drama.

Yeah, my wife is too. We don't have any of our own kids and after helping raise mine, I had custody, she just got plain wore out. She's 10 years younger then me and she says she can't keep up with me. Now we have 7 grand kids 4 to 15 and she wants to do it all over again. I told her to leave me out of it...but I can't. I have a 15 year old 'TWIGGY' on my hands that looks up to me because her dad don't care. If I had to be honest here, if you asked my daughters kids where they want to live and they would tell you with mom mom.

Lots of drama around my house. I thank my stars I can go in the garage and work on my 69 Z28 and smoke a cigar and drink a beer.


That's funny Gary.

My first marriage went 8 years and three kids.  Best three kids around.  Still very close.

My wife is an angel.  I am the luckiest guy on earth.  Wouldn't trade her for anything.


Can't help you with the nut and stud.  Sorry.
