Dave, could you try installing it on the car and see if it will adjust and idle correctly? That would easier for me versus trying to figure out all specs, etc? Hoe do you even measure all those bleed holes etc. without some sophisticated equipment or gages?

Yikes!!!, I glad I'm not looking for one of these. Big time serious business!! I guess if I ever decide to sell my Z, it will be like a Spanish inquisition!

It is a Norwood Car, so I might look next time I'm working the area, but I'm not going to make it a special job. Thanks for the replies

I have heard of some finding the build sheet on top of the gas tank on some Camaros. The tank on mine has never been off the car, and so I'm curious about finding it (the build sheet). Is there any way to determine if it is there short of removing the tank? If not, I won't worry about it, cause I'm not removing the tank just to check.

Be sure all pulleys are designed for, and correct for the same V belt. I'm guessing they are. I once had a belt problem years ago when a clerk at the local parts store sold me a V belt which was designed for a different size pulley (smaller) because "my belt was not in stock, but this one was" The belt I was sold was thiner for a smaller type Sheave (pulley) After about a month, it literally was hanging on by only the thin strip of metal which was in the center of the original belt. The reason? because it was thinner, it rode deeper on the sheave, and was force to turn at a radius tighter than it was designed for, resulting in its destruction in a very short time. Good luck.

From what I have read about Holleys carbs, modifying the air bleeds and idle restrictions is something only an expert should attempt. Otherwise the carb could be become unable to be tuned correctly. Why do you think it has been modified?

I was checking through the list of recommended publications, and was wondering; What ever happened to John Hooper. Haven't heard anything from him in years!

Ditto for my 302 as well;  I am using Champiion RJ12YC plugs, and they seem to work better for me than AC's although it is just my impression. No scientific data to prove it.

Thanks John, I can see where it would be impossible to replicate anything like that process just for Camaro Repro Quarters, etc. The guys that make the actual dies must be some kind of craftsmen

I would be curious to know why these companies' sheetmetal parts are not as good as GM. Obviously they have to make dies to produce these repro parts, and they should know what they are trying to match, ie the original GM parts. Only thing I can figure is that since they are not selling as many parts as GM did originally, they cannot afford to spend as much on tooling as GM originally did.

Very Likely! Mine is also M20. Wonder if they were in batches in Muncie?

Note that this transmission has the exact assembly date, P9P11, as the one in my 69 Z; My VIN is 516355.

Just for added info, here's what the VIN on my car looks like.

Thanks John Z for the info. My Z idles 10-12 in Hg so I'm not sure what vacuum advance can I have. I replaced it years ago with Echlin part which was supposed to be correct for my car, so it may be the VC-1810, but I'm going to pick up another one and test it to see. The car does idle fine now, although at a higher rpm (1000-1100)  than the 900 the factory manual calls for. It always seem to rough when I tried to set it that low. Maybe this why?
