61  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Sick of seeing this Z on ebay on: December 07, 2012, 08:40:15 AM
I am so sick of seeing this Z. This was my car. I had Jerry do the inspection. At that time there was no VIN stamped on the block. I have told this dealer that and they ignore me. Jerry stated in his report "Can I say that this is definitely the original engine to this vehicle? I can neither confirm nor deny it's authenticity."

The grilles  look so much better in the correct argent finish.

I've never understood why so many people spend all that money on restorations and not paint the grille. There seem to be more wrong than right.

He says " The stripes are applied correctly." To bad the wrong color.
64  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: How to spot a fake on: November 12, 2012, 10:32:22 AM
The other red flag is the seller stating the engine is, “The Correct Engine”. This usually means it isn’t original to the car.

Here's the eBay link; http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261104056476&ssPageName=ADME:X:BOCOR:MOTORS:1123#ht_3745wt_1143

Beware of this seller. I asked him about the trim tag. He said it is real cause his brother bought this car new and that's the tag that came on it. Kinda funny cause a while back he had a black Z for sale and I question him on it and he said the same thing except a friend of his bought it new.

That seller always has Z's for sale on eBay. I think just about everyone I've seen him have listed is questionable.

I ended up rethreading my 3/8 bolt down to 5/16. Works like a charm.

Danny,

15 seconds in the Harbor Freight bead blast cabinet. I suppose it looks a little rough, but it ought to look dandy after replating. Note the bolt size is identical to the hex size.

Shame they don't make these anymore -

Regards,
Steve

Steve ....sent you a message

I called them and they get their cables from Factory Fit. I have talked to Factory Fit and they I formed me they use the
3/8 bolt in their cables.
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 11:50:16 PM
Danny - if you need this cable let me know - I won't be using it in all likelihood since I can't be sure of the number for my application -
Regards,
Steve

Thanks I appreciate it but the bolt looks a little rough.

Yes they do Danny cause one guy almost ruined my battery trying to put the wrong bolt in the wrong hole. He ruined the first 3 or 4 threads with the 5/16 when he tried to tightened it. Pulled them right out.  I was lucky as my disconnect had a longer bolt that went deep enough to catch the threads that were left deep in the hole.

Where did you get the cables?
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 08:35:09 PM
Where did you get your cables? My new ones came with the correct 5/16 and the 3/8 like they were supposed to. Maybe get some new cables since you are having a hard time finding the bolt.
So you say your cables have different size threads on the bolts? Every place I called said the reproduction cables they sell have 3/8 threads and the bolt head is the only difference in size between neg and pos. The cables were on my car when I bought it.
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 04:48:02 PM
I've called all the above mentioned places and they all use 3/8 thread bolts in the reproduction cables since that's the way new batteries are.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 01:04:40 PM
Did you see my link on TC? Corvette Central has the bolts by themselves.

Ed


Yes but I called and those are 3/8

I looked in my battery book and yes Corvette did have the 5/16 neg connector. From what I see anything that used a Y77, Y79, Y87, or R79 battery they had the 5/16 neg.
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 neg side terminal battery cable bolt on: November 05, 2012, 09:00:22 AM
The bolt head looks correct but I can't tell what size bolt that is. I need a 5/16 thread bolt.
