Just picked up an original '68 Z28 distributor today from a local guy!  1111467, date is 8A3.  Will restore it to sell.  Also got the matching carb, 812 and 610 intake manifold.

284 is the correct WP casting number for '68,

You should have seen the mutt at Russo Steele that had a pair of these heads installed on the engine.  Also had an extra pair displayed with the car.  I think this Z28 did stupid money there.

I was there too.  Was an average restoration.  Nothing special.  Lots of little things wrong with this car.  Upper doors were painted in candy apple red paint instead of the correct red color.

Bruce Shaw is one of the better collector car lawyers in the country.  I have worked with him and he's excellent.  In the Philadelphia area.

People at BJ don't seem to care about a car being technically correct.  They just buy and ask questions later.  Lots of junk out there for sale, and many with fake paperwork.  I am already on two cases for cars bought that were misrepresented.  Imagine that.

All the 69 Z28s that I saw for sale had a crossram.  I suspect they were built that way?  The 1 4-bbl Z28s are very rare.

Our exhaust manifold reskinning process cost $215 small block and $265 big block.

Our aluminum initake restoration is still $120, shipping is extra.  Check out our web site, www.z28camaro.com and read some of the customer feedback.

John,

I agree 100%.  At least when New Castle was around, they did a better job with their customers.  Not the case with the remaniing battery company.  Plus New Castle batteries were under $200 retail.  Need I say more?

Just wanted to make sure I made this clear.  The current reproduction side terminal batteries do not come with the correct cable mounting hole sizes.  Both attaching bolt holes on these batteries is 3/8-16.  Not technically correct.

Current research indicates that the side terminal battery started in late April, 1969.  I have an all original 69 Z28 survivor car that still has the original battery cables which are side terminal cables.  The B/D is 05A, 1969.  I should also point out the original side terminal cables have two different attaching bolt sizes, the positive has 3/8-16 threads and the ground is 5/16-18.  All of the repro cables are the same size making them incorrect. 

When I purchased a repro battery from the only remaining oem battery company (Ohio based), I found out that I could not use their battery.  Their incompetent answer was to install repro cables and throw the originals away.  I opted to drill out and install a heli coil in the battery terminal so I could use the original cables.

Wonder what the general feeling is for anyone who has dealt with the only remaining repro battery company.  We have found them less than courteous, and incompetent when trying to get good technical support.  They are also very expensive and offer very little discounts to other dealers.  New Castle Battery, the originator of reproduction batteries was a much better vendor to deal with but unfortunately, they are no longer in business.

If you have the vin number on the invoice, you have a good shot at finding the car if it's still around.  A friend who is a police officer would be the best help.  Someone like this could run the vin in many states to see if the vin is still active.  If it is, then you can contact the current owner and see if he'd like to sell the car back to the original owner.  This is how I tracked down the Dave Strickler Old Reliable Z28.  Good luck,

Jerry

If you install it where the rear factory hole position is, the antenna will hit.

We also plug all of the cast iron intakes here at Camaro Hi-Performance when we rebuild an engine.

Also check for the tail pipe adapter plate on the rear left side frame rail.

Randy,

The 7A25 is the more common dist for the 67 Z28.  Others have been documented, and yes they were made in big batches as needed.
