Sounds to me like the timing chain was put on with the cam and crank not indexed correctly.
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Swapping a 700R 4 into a 67 on: August 19, 2014, 11:32:56 PM
BEWARE!  You may not be happy with a 700R4  The gear ratio spacing is not the best.  First gear is very low compared to other options.  The 700R4 shifts from 1st to 2nd and feels like it just shifted from 1st to 3rd. With a 3:73 rear gear I didn't like it at all.  I pulled out the 700R4 and gave it away. Replaced it with an Autogear M22W 4speed.

You can change the ratios in a 700R4 or use one from a Corvette that has better ratio spacing.

Someone over at Team Camaro makes custom stickers.. I had him make a couple for me a few years ago.  383 Turbo-Fire 425 Hoesepower sticker for my ZZ383 crate engine.

My Dad and I built a VW Manx dune buggy that became my first driver in '69.  But my first real car was a '68 Z/28 that I bought in '71.  I had it only 2 years.  When sold in '73 I bought a '56 Nomad.  A few others over the years. I bought my current '69 Camaro in '2005 turning a gramdma car into a Z/28 clone.  ZZ383, Autogear M22W. Moser 12 Bolt.  All the good stuff.

Would the date stamp be a "T" and not a "V"?
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stripe delete on: June 05, 2014, 03:09:47 PM
I considered buying a '68 Z/28 in Rally Green back in '71.  It was a stripe delete car and was still original paint.  I didn't care for the color and the motor had already been patched up from spinning a rod bearing.  I didn't buy it.  It had the numbers matching "MO" engine with the matching VIN.

In hind sight I guess I shouldn't have let it get away.  I later bought a Lemans Blue '68 Z. and only had it for 3 years.  Wonder where it is today?

I don't see an oil galley plug with a hex head in that first posted picture on the first page.??
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another Tire Question on: March 31, 2014, 07:33:20 PM
I like the fatter tire look.  I've been happy with 235's on 7" rims up front and 255's with 8" rims out back.  I have #6320 front springs with no rubbing problems.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Mult-Leaf Springs or Single for 1967 L30M20? - That is the question. on: February 11, 2014, 11:11:19 PM
Aren't most Cal-Trac systems done on single leaf springs?  Or is it that Cal-Tracs work better on single leaf spring cars.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: factory 302 emblem on 1969 Z-28 on: January 18, 2014, 09:42:03 PM
Couldn't the ZL2 hood be ordered on other Camaro models?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Oil Pan leaks... ugh.. on: December 03, 2013, 02:22:33 PM
Good Luck!  The Fel-Pro one-piece gasket leaks just as bad.  Mine has leaked for the last 4 years.   Leaks at the front and at the back.  Not a drip but a seeping leak.  I usually wipe the oil pan down with a rag before the leak gets to the floor.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hole by ignition switch? on: October 09, 2013, 08:45:43 PM
My 68 Z had a hole there. I added it. I put a backup lite switch there since the switch on the Muncie was not working.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: F41(1969) on: May 26, 2013, 04:55:05 PM
I know it's possible.  The car was just in great condition with low miles.  On the other hand my '68 Z had been run pretty hard by a previous owner but still the original drive train.
