1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Pricing for a 1968 MO complete engine on: September 24, 2012, 10:40:35 PM
Thanks.  I was told recently from a long time Chevrolet mechanic(since 1955) that the 291 heads had a problem with pulling the pressed in studs out , hence why they changed in late 69 early 70 to screw in studs and guide plates on 302s. He said that when a 302 came in with this issue they swapped out heads with this done under warranty, he did say that he had no idea what castings they were replacing them with. Has anyone seen this ?

I have the rockers, pushrods, and a can. It can be reassembled quite easily with just a gasket set. Thanks again for the info.

I am getting ready to offer up my MO 1968 complete engine. I bought it with my z 10 years go. It was completely assembled, with an inch of body shop dust on it and I was told I was all new but took it to a machine shop to be inspected. After the heads were removed , it is evident it had never been fired.  It is 30 with correct pistons but they used full floating pins, correct crank, pan, intake , heads , rockers , all is correct expect cam, it was a hydraulic that was  removed. I just wanted to see what a reasonable price would be to ask. I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Restoration Paint Guide for 1968 Camaro Z28 on: June 12, 2011, 02:02:59 PM
Is there a true guide or book that details the correct paint and finish for each part of a Camaro? I am in the paint process of the restoration and I keep seeing so many different opinions. I would really like to find a guide, so I can keep each part as accurate as possible. Any help would be appreciated!!
