856  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Car assembly question on: August 08, 2010, 10:15:08 AM
I've had some questions banging around for a while. How was it desided how a car was to be built if it wasn't special ordered for a customer? Not all the Camaros built were customer ordered correct? Did the dealers order them the way they wanted or did Chevrolet have some kind of system?

Thanks

What's wrong with the interior? 712 is black custom correct? Is it because it has houndstooth? or should have comfort weave?

Correct, it should have comfort weave (712) per the cowl tag, not houndstooth (713) which is what is in the car...    Sad

Paul

Good to know. He probably went to houndstooth for lack of finding the correct comfort weave. Is anyone doing correct comfort weave these days? I noticed that the auction for the car has ended. I wonder if graycamaro got it.

graycamaro -

If you are serious about this car, you need to contact Jerry MacNeish (410-781-0418) and have him check it out for you.

Now that you have the correct link posted, I see one big red flag; the car has the wrong interior per the cowl tag!

Good luck and proceed with caution!

Hi Kurt.

The owner of the lot who is the owner of the car wasn't around so I didn't go any deeper than looking at what was obvious.

KurtS...Found this 69 Camaro at a local used car lot yesterday. Non power drum brakes, manual steering, 4 speed, console no gages, a/c. Not a restored car and the TT appears to not have been touched.

861  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did my 69 Z have manual or power steering??? on: March 16, 2010, 12:37:07 PM

Ok. Great information. Is it safe to say the drag link size is the determining factor on whether or not you had power steering or manual steering? I would like to find out if my car was an original M.S. or P.S. car so I'll know what to say when someone asks me questions about the car.

I'm thinking it was M.S. based on the equipment that was installed on the car when I bought it. (67 P.S. box and pump, 68 Z28 mounting brackets) I did get all the correct mounting brackets for 69. The  P.S. pump I bought LOOKS like what is on most Camaros in pics I have looked at, but I understand there is a difference between the BB and the SB. Can I assume the pump by it self was the same for all models? Are they dated? The P.S. box is out of an 80 WS Trans AM. I like the way the car steers but it is really really jerky and took a while to get used to it.

I like both manual and power steering on these cars. If it is originally a M.S. car I think I'll find a manual box and put it away for the next owner.

Thanks,
G

I would use the 711 gasket.  When you get into this quench topics then it becomes more of a Stock Eliminator get every last HP issue rather than a good running 302 for the street.  Don't worry about what everyone thinks, I've been in this hobby long enough to know that you will get 100 different answers from 100 different people.  We get about 360-380 out of a stock rebuild on a pedigree 302 on pump gas.  We can step it up from that if requested. 

Jerry


Thanks for the info. Where can I get this 711 gasket?
864  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 question for JM on: February 21, 2010, 08:04:21 PM
We usually use the 711 or the composition GM gasket that's about .030" compressed.  Depends on where the piston is at TDC.

Jerry

Hello. I was asking about what gasket to use on the T.C. site. I have a .030 over bore stock rebuilt DZ engine, balanced. The pistons are .021 below the deck and block surface has not been decked. Just a little confused from the answers provide due to the quench specs. What would be recommended in this application?

Thanks, Gary
865  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Question about Fisher Body date on: February 18, 2010, 04:35:14 AM
My VIN is 653104 and body is 344579. My original driveline has not been in my car since it came to Delaware in 1987 as far as I know so I haven't anything to go by in regards to those numbers. On a side note when I got the car I found a V0604DZ dated E 27 9 and 186 heads E 27 9 and F 1 9. I believe Kurt has this engine number in his data base. Vin stamp by oil filter reads 661 something, I can't remember all of it at the moment. Is it too close or OK?

Any opinions would be appreciated.

Gary

N653104 is an early June VIN. Cars in that time frame have mid-late May engines.

So are the dates on the block and heads I have too close, acceptable or not acceptable for my build date?
866  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Question about Fisher Body date on: February 17, 2010, 01:46:19 PM
Hello everyone. I hope I'm not highjacking this post..and if I am shame on me.

 I have been following this post with interest hoping I can find some info on my build date as well. I have one of those 06A built Z28's. I'm not really positive about this, but I was told some time ago that my car was probably built the first week of June... 2 thru 7...that was a monday thru saturday in 69. Based on the info in Jerry M's book, 2 edition page 199, it really is hard to say for sure since the book states my VIN as being built May (05) with VINs starting at 636000 and ending 654000. My VIN is 653104 and body is 344579. My original driveline has not been in my car since it came to Delaware in 1987 as far as I know so I haven't anything to go by in regards to those numbers. On a side note when I got the car I found a V0604DZ dated E 27 9 and 186 heads E 27 9 and F 1 9. I believe Kurt has this engine number in his data base. Vin stamp by oil filter reads 661 something, I can't remember all of it at the moment. Is it too close or OK?

867  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Older post on O rods on: February 14, 2010, 06:04:16 PM
I was just reading the lengthy post on the O rods and was curious about the X rods that I have seen. Are they any good. Any info on these? I just put a set of these in my 302. Should I replace?

Here is the post.

Thanks.
868  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did my 69 Z have manual or power steering??? on: February 14, 2010, 02:25:22 PM
Yes that is what I understand. So what I need to find out is "What size are the drag links" I haven't seen a size number anywhere to check mine against anything.

869  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Did my 69 Z have manual or power steering??? on: February 13, 2010, 07:59:19 PM
I was just reading the info about the manual and power steering on the 69 Camaro and since I am not the original owner of my 69 Z28 and there are no documents (so far anyway) to check against and my car does have power steering, I was wondering what size the drag links are so I can verify. I don't have a caliper to check diameter, so I was just going to use the adjustable wrench method with my machinest ruler. Does anyone have this info?

Also what would I need to find if I had the RPO N44? Good to know I suppose to find out if I have that RPO or not.

Gary

Thanks Kurt. What date booster would I need for my 69Z that was actually built first week in June 06A. At least that is when I believe mine was built based on my research here and T.C. I might try my luck over at Team Chevelle and see if someone has a 9204 to trade.
