616  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 z/28 full floating connecting rods - Fact or Fiction on: August 01, 2006, 03:55:02 PM
The first 302 I saw disassembled was in 1972; Saw the original Z/28 Camaro the engine came from; it had full floating TRW aluminum pistons; I now own a 69 Z/28; I have these same original TRW full floating pistons which were removed from my original 302 engine This original engine is still in my 69 Z/28 Camaro at this moment. (I've owned it since 1982; it's now .030" over) 1969 Z/28's came with full floating pistons. Check Jerry MaNeish's book; there are pictues of these pistons. My original pistons are identical to the pictures in MacNeish's book. Even in when they were new 1969 Z/28 camaros were not all that common a car. Many mechanics probably never worked on or even saw a 302.

I have the 8 original full floating pistons from my 302 that were replaced when it was rebuilt; In fact one of the pistons is broken at the pin boss. I suspect that whoever disassembled them when I had the engine redone attempted to "press" the first one apart, and broke it! Just like the guys at the parts stores who always ask if my 302 is a Ford engine!

If you'd would be interested, I can take a photo on one and email you.

I am in need of front bake work on my 69 Z; my calipers are frozen; anybody done as conversion to higher performance set up such as offered by Wilwood or? I like it to be bolt on conversion. I also like to use silicone brake fluid; This is not recommended by Wilwood; Anybody know why?
