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

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.

I moved some recent posts into it.

General Discussion / 68 BB auto M11 floor shifter
« on: February 02, 2016, 04:20:31 AM »
Don't see these too often.
Only came on 68 SS396 auto cars. RPO M11.
They used a 67 auto shifter, btw.

Mild Modifications / Nice fitting headers on a Z28

I saw these Doug's headers on a Z28 recently. With power steering and the reverse lockout linkage!
They fit really nice and have a thick flange so they won't warp.

Original Cars and Details / Z28 cowl paint (and Z11/Z10)
« on: December 07, 2015, 03:05:44 AM »
This probably could be in originality section. :)
How the cowls are painted on Z-striped cars is often discussed. So here's some pics.

Here is an original owner yellow car. 05A NOR

The green one is not my Z, but it's really close. Mine has a bit more white on the driver's side, but it clearly fades away to the green underneath just like this car.

Pacers were done differently.
Picture courtesy of SCW / Brian Henderson.  03B NOR
They really didn't want the orange everywhere on the NOR pacers so they were masked off. I've seen LOS pacers with coverage all over the top of the cowl.

Bryon put together a nice article on 1st gen waterpumps. Lots of pics to show the variants.

General Discussion / 67-9 Fuel lines

This is a discussion that started in another thread and I split it off into its own topic.
I originally wrote:
All V8's were 3/8 in 67-68. I thought this was on the site, but I don't see it. If I can get comparable pics of the SB vs BB line routing from original cars, I'll add it.

1969 - Orphans / 9N627250 DZ block
« on: April 12, 2014, 03:12:22 AM »
DZ block for 124379N627250. Car is still out there.

camarospecialties in East Aurora, New York. $2900.

I'm working on the starter applications and have most of the starter usages figured out except for:
67 L6 - auto and manual:
I only have what the literature says, no vehicle confirmation for either transmission.

1968 SS350:
Literature says one part #, but data from one vehicle conflicts that. I've looked high and low for other 68 SS350's with their original starters to no avail!

Early 1969 SS350 auto (before December 68):
Early SS350 auto cars had a cranking issue (there is a TSB on it) and apparently the starter was changed to a different part #. I know that after December, SS350 TH350's used a 1108420. Looking for early (pre Dec 68) L48 auto cars with original starters OR if you can tell me if the flywheel is 153 tooth or 168 tooth.

For any cars in these 3 groups, I'd like the VIN (can be emailed to me off-line), build date, and starter part number and date.

Here's where the starter is stamped.
Starter on the left is a 153 tooth starter with straight mounting bolts and the right one is a 168 tooth with staggered mounting holes.
