It is amazing to me how this whole hobby has gone full circle. Used to be fixing up your muscle car was just plain fun. Now it's too damn serious! What do you do with 69 Z with 4 wheel discs and a crossram anyway? Store it in Fort Knox?

617  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Do these 302 DZ Block Numbers make Sense? on: January 19, 2007, 04:36:45 PM
I read the link regarding machining of 2 versus 4 bolt main blocks at the factory. Does it not make sense that as soon as a block (or any part for that matter) is machined or changed that it then becomes a different part no.? So the part no. on the block is for the raw casting only, and as anything is done thereafter it becomes a different part. A machined block with 4 bolt main would be a different no. than the same block machined with 2 bolt mains. For identification purposes at the factory, they made have had a sticker or tag with the applicable part no., 4 or 2 bolt. Or a least some type of job no. Surely they did not rely on visual identification to distinguish?

So if is not an original 302 block then someone took a 327 block, added 4 bolt main caps, (are the 4 bolt caps dated somewhere) had to  machine, drill and tap for the 4 bolt caps, and probably align bore? Then machine the pad to re-stamp with partial VIN and DZ markings? All this to sell a bare block for a profit? I don't know how much was paid, but it doesn't seem worth it to me? I vote for it being legitimate.

Is the title search with BMV route available anymore, or has this fallen victim to the privacy laws?

620  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z/28 proportioning valve on: January 08, 2007, 04:25:14 PM
I have a 10B 69 Z with no proportioning valve. I replaced orginal brake lines myself, and there was and is no valve under the front seat. Who says they all had the valve? Probably the same ones who say they all had tachs and guage package!! And that they never made a Rally Sport Z!! And that there was another gunman on the grassy knoll!!!

621  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Do these 302 DZ Block Numbers make Sense? on: December 27, 2006, 11:56:58 AM
Is it 4 bolt main? Wouldn't that qualify it as 69 model year? Or could that have been modified/added? 68 was 2 bolt correct?

622  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Markings on factory orignal Camaros on: December 27, 2006, 11:49:42 AM
I am starting to see "restored" Camaros with all kinds of paint and chalk markings on tihings like front suspension, rear leaf springs, and a "DZ" chalk mark on a 69 Z Cylinder head. Were all of these markings on original cars? And if they were, does somebody have pic's of orginal cars, or just how do we know this?

623  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Fender striping on Rally Sport z's on: November 30, 2006, 04:45:18 PM
Did Rally sport Z's come with the striping on the front fenders and rear quarters? Or was this deleted with the rally sport package?

624  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / "Rotisserie Restoration" on: November 30, 2006, 09:50:20 AM
I am constantly seeing the term "Rotisserie Restoration" cars for sale ads. What does this mean? Do they mount the car and rotate it like on a barbecue grill? Or does it really mean: This car is for sale by a dealer?

Hello pluml78,

Just curious - what rear axle ratio are you using?

626  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / X77 Cars on: November 14, 2006, 08:32:07 AM
Would an X77 coded Z/28 have the following:

Rear Quarter louvers
Chrome wheel well moldings
Chrome roof drip rails

I was under the impression that these items came with X33 Cars. Otherwise, these areas are painted only.  It just seems that every car I see on E Bay has all or most of these, and I'm wondering if everybody is adding them... sort of like cowl hoods.

627  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 motor / trans authentication on: November 06, 2006, 04:19:35 PM
VIN stamp should be on both engine and trans if they are original to car. On trans, VIN stamp is right next to build date code.

628  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 750 CFM Edlebrock on: November 06, 2006, 04:14:17 PM
What are the throttle bore diameters for the 600 and the 750? The larger the bore, the more air which the carb can flow. The trade off is that that same larger diameter bore will result in slower air velocity (speed). Thus it takes more time for the mixture to go from carb to cylinder. This is where throttle response can suffer. Air speed is why a carb is a 4 small barrels, not 1 large barrel. If your house has a ceiling fan in the attic, you can demonstrate to yourself the air speed effect of different size openings. Close all the windows in the house except one, and open this window slightly while turning on the ceiling fan. Feel the incoming air moving thru the opening and then open the window further and feel the speed of the incoming air decrease as the opening size increases.

I agree that additive is not required. Have 69 Z with 11:1 pistons, and have not had problems running unleaded premium. No valve problems after 24 years and 16,000 miles.

My car has Vinyl Top, and has been re-painted once, so I don't think I'm a good reference.
