Saw this as well. The question that come to my mind is - Did this all come from one individual or source? Not sure I'll ever get an answer, but I can't help but be curious anyway.

Must be these new cars that are getting to me, but it looks like you could fit a suitcase between that right side fender and the engine!!  Grin And that's a big block!!

Success! Heat worked. Now coated with anti seize to prevent relapse.

Road test of a 1968 Z/28 from the September 1970 issue of CAR, a British publication. Interesting read because the car
is two years old at this point and it also gives a foreigner's take on what they think of the car. (Jon Mello Collection)




Interesting how things do not change. The Brit's opinion of American Cars is still usually one of contempt! Lol!!

So I don't have a torch per se, only a little propane gas bottle torch. So how hot do I get the parts?

Thanks, got the rods soaking now in PB Blaster. I'll give it 24 hours, and then try the heat again if necessary. Odd thing is, the parts really aren't very rusty at all. But I guess it doesn't take much for those fine threads to get frozen.

I'm trying to free up the adjusting blocks that thread onto the shift rods on an after market competition plus. They are frozen and will not more. I've tried soaking in WD 40 for 24 hours, and even heating the blocks themselves to try to free them up, but nothing haven't had any success. Anything else I can soak the in or any other ideas?

Thanks!
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / AM Radio on: September 26, 2014, 09:52:33 AM
I'd like to remove that after market Radio from my 69 Camaro and re install a more original looking AM unit. I have an AM radio from my 71 Chevelle that looks pretty much identical to the pics I've seen of the 69 unit. ID/Part no. is identical, except first character is "1" for 71, not "9" for 69. Looks like it would work? Does the radio have some kind of mounting bracket on the back side that I need as well? Seems like it would have to?

Just visited the 9/11 museum over Labor Day. A powerful reminder of how fortunate we are in this country to have such freedom, and that there is always an ongoing battle with those who would seek to take it from us.

If they were original quarter panels, the holes for the louvers would be present. 

Exactly!
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ebay ad for a big block Z11 car.... on: September 05, 2014, 02:05:24 PM
Shouldn't it have quarter louvers? It' an RS/SS correct?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Z28 production run on: September 03, 2014, 03:45:04 PM
I believe the first 15? or so Z's are listed in Jerry M's Book

GET AN ADJUSTABLE TIMING LIGHT I've had mine for 25 years, and will never go back. Seeing as I basically play with race motors, set it to the total degrees I'm looking for--align timing mark to indicator--lock it down, done.   I've done lots more with it.


My timing light is from the 70's. Sounds like I need one of these. Whose light is good, and how does it work? It sounds like it knows where TDC is if it can tell total timing. Doesn't it have to be calibrated to the engine timing somehow to know what total timing is?

Sorry if I'm hijacking?
