616  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear Main Seal leak on: June 14, 2007, 07:15:45 AM
Thanks Jerry. It's not bad, I can live with it. I was just wondering if there is some "secret' or "trick" to insure it will not leak again if I re-did it. I had the motor redone many years ago by a "professional", and it was leaking again in 3 months. So much for my clean undercarriage!! Maybe small blocks, like dogs, like to leave their mark!

617  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Rear Main Seal leak on: June 13, 2007, 03:58:37 PM
I have the traditional rear main seal oil drip on my 69 Z 302. Engine runs well, so this is just an annoyance. Can this be fixed removing only the pan, oil pump, and rear main cap?, i.e. without major disassembly. And with a high degree of confidence it will not leak again? Or live with it? Adding oil is no big deal, but it gets oil all over the bottom of the engine/trans, the major cause of my annoyance. Thanks.

With the way things are going with these forgeries, is there any possibility of someone going to the trouble of setting up a broaching operation to replicate the original block deck machining process?? Is it possible? Would it be financially viable?

If it's the original style replacement 780 cfm Holley, jet size would be 68/76. I found this to be lean on my Z, and currently am jetted 71/79 which works well on warm days, 80 deg F.
Even with this jetting, it will hesitate if the temperature is colder , say 30-40 degrees F. Note that I am running stock 30/30 cam. Hope this helps.

It may be the color of the pic; It is sitting on top of a white freezer; typ freezer white so that may help for color reference. I've posted another pic of entire unit for a better look.

Here's a pic of evaporator from 1967 RS/SS 350 Camaro for any interested.

Whatever you do, make sure there are "junkyard dogs"!

I have also seen the article on the burgundy Z with red stripes; Didn't appeal to me.

626  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Are desirable Camaros becoming out of reach to the average person? on: May 08, 2007, 03:51:01 PM
I purchased my 69 Z/28 in 1982 for $6200. That was steep at the time, and the only reason I could afford it then was that I was single, and had made some money traveling with my job. Even at that, I never considered it an investment. I am sure that many at that time thought it was an ill advised use of my money, but I loved the car and especially the 302, so I went for what I wanted. Now I look like a financial guru which I am not. The difference between me and others of that time, was that I took the risk, while others I knew always talked about wanting a car like mine, but when it came to putting their money where their mouth was......it was just talk. I think that if  these cars are a dream for someone, they should go for it if they can (obviously not a possibility for everyone)

627  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Won't start when the starter gets hot. on: May 04, 2007, 10:34:01 AM
I once had this  problem with starter where it would do nothing when everything was hot, but worked fine at cold start ups. Seems it had internal wiring with insulation that was not what it should be, and when hot, wires would expand, cross and short. When it cooled off, wires would contract, not cross and everything worked fine.

Whenever I would attempt to crank while hot, ammeter would also bury to one side. I think this was an indication of a short, which was what was happening inside the starter when uninsulated wires crossed. Had to replace starter.

Just another possibility

 Hi sd1968z28,

With milled flanges, are you using only ultra copper and no gasket, correct?

Thanks,

I am going to install a new set of headers in my 69 Z in the near future, and wonder what is current thinking regarding gaskets, etc. in order to get a good seal, minimizing exhaust leakage. It's alway been a headache. What's working for others?
