General Discussion / Driveshaft Research Report
« on: April 11, 2018, 04:01:26 PM »
Bryon's research report is finally published! As the editor, I take the blame for being the delaying factor.
He did a great job on pulling together all the resources to make it happen.

I started a new forum area: Promotional Events and Concept Cars
I put Scott's great posts in there. I have also collected pics of concept cars and would eventually like to have separate threads about each one.

Originality / Pulley diameters - anyone have these pulleys
« on: March 21, 2017, 08:40:03 PM »
Can you help with this pulley list?
Here is a list of first gen pulleys that we don't have the diameter (list is also on-site). The alternator pulleys don't always have numbers stamped on them so it would have to come from an known original part.
Diameter is simply the OD of the part. (Originally, they would have been measured over steel balls because you care where the belt sits, not the OD.)  Sorry about the column alignment, took work to even get it this nice!
SB is small block, BB is big block, DG is deep groove.

We added some info on horns to the site.

Restoration / New tie rod ends and idler arm
« on: February 24, 2017, 06:29:08 AM »
The SS396 (69) needs new tie rod ends and an idler arm.
I see many different options out there. This is a driver - noone will notice if they don't look exactly original, but I'd prefer they at least look close.
Recommendations on what/whose to get?

Original Cars and Details / Original 67-68 D90 and D91 stripe details
« on: December 22, 2016, 04:04:37 AM »
Starting a thread about the details of original 67-68 stripes (but not Z28 stripes).
Here's the header stripe of an original paint 06C LOS 1968 car.

And here's the basic info on the stripes.

Other than incorrect striping, looks really solid and original.

General Discussion / VIN search issue
« on: October 19, 2016, 05:25:18 AM »
I've recently come across a search problem that's baffling me.
You used to be able to search a VIN via Google and it would find it anywhere, if it existed. That no longer works, which devalues the orphan listings.
123377L100013 is on the orphan docs page. Search it (or any other VIN on that page) via Google and nothing comes up. The only way to find it is via the forum search function. Or via Bing.
Anyone have any insight? Anyone want to reach out to Google and ask why?

Original Cars and Details / Roy's new 68 SS350

Roy bought a really original 68 SS350. Hopefully he figures out how to post pics. :)

Original Cars and Details / Silver 69 Z28
« on: June 09, 2016, 03:37:15 AM »
Here's a nice survivor that Steve has.
This car was purchased new at H.O.B. Motors in North Plainfield, NJ by Don K. The car was dealer inventory and on the lot. The car has few options: console, gauges, and deluxe comfort weave interior. No spoilers, no cowl hood and not even a radio, although on the dealer invoice a Motorola AM radio is noted. The original owner had it until 2009 and put only 32k miles. Never modified and even the smog was never removed.

General Discussion / JL8 master cylinder
« on: May 11, 2016, 08:04:03 PM »
Looking for confirmation of the JL8 master cylinder code. Is it US or something else?
JL8's don't have the residual pressure valve for the rear brakes. Maybe that was part of the master cyl assembly and the master cyl's are the same.

This one has been a **long** time coming, but here's a report on Floor Shifters for Manual Transmissions by Martin Foltz and myself. With a lot of help from a lot of people.
