706  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Smog equipment or Cowl Plenum on: June 12, 2011, 10:25:45 PM
Know exactly where your coming from as I had the issue. Our 68 had the cut out and air cowl plenum when purchased 30 years ago but of course no smog set up. The third owner purchased the car but never got the plenum set up (long story) even though the car lot said they had it. In 79 an orig. one was purchased via Hemmings Motor News for the car back in 1979. Then around late 2003 or early 2004 I purchased a complete smog set up from Jerry only to find out some months ago that it would not work. Since the car had air cowl set up installed no way was I going to patch the cowl so I easily decided to go with the cowl plenum but purchased the repro Kustom Headers. The orig. owner had put Stahl Headers on and still has them. But in your case I would not cut the cowl to put the air cowl plenum air cleaner on if it is not cut currently. Keep that smog set up on and the air cowl plenum set up is worth quite a lot if it's all original so you have a winner in that regard if you decide to sell. Of course you could put it in the trunk for display Grin

wanted to continue this thread...

Who else provides Quadrajet restorations out there?

There must be more people out there providing correct services for restorations.

Eric had stopped but was doing them again so it might be worthwhile to contact him.
I thought that Eric J did not do Quadrajets anymore? Huh

708  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 DZ Carb Date Code on: April 27, 2011, 05:45:33 AM
Meaning this DZ carb date code 8A3 was installed on either a 68 Z or an early production run of the 69Z?
This carb would not have been on a 68 Z since the 68 model year was over when it (carb) was born but would have been on a somewhat early 69 model year Z/28 or L78 Camaro.

Found two white paint marks when the other end of the driveshaft was soaked. The dimension (tape measure in pic) was from the centerline of the rear universal.


Both welded on Yokes are part # 3790024 and both seem to have a "318-2" beside the castings chevrolet embossed emblem. Notice the orange paint also.

Thanks Guys.
It was Chick's 3rd post in this thread with what looks like an AIM page with tape wrapping the bushings that had me confused. I thought that was the tape in question.
Anyway, I (also?) assumed it's purpose was to hold the bushings during assembly -post Fisher. ..and didn't thoroughly read the following posts. Smiley
That picture Steve came with a Quanta 68 marking kit and was noted as "Technical Bullentin #69". They have several (8 or 9) of these "Technical Bullentin" numbered forms and many of them are confirmed with what I have found on our car and read what others have found. Have no idea to how correct or not on this particular bullentin #69.

Some of the corvette restorers are having tanks powder coated clear. They say they will stay nice forever. Seemed like an interesting option to look at Grin
712  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Z/28 INTAKE MANIFOLD on: April 18, 2011, 10:43:33 PM
They're fairly easy to find on Evil bay.   I got a nice one but didn't worry about the date because it's under the heat shield.  I had Jerry "re-skin" it.

I agree.... Dates under the heat sheild then buried again once bolted to the engine. Find a nice one, have Jerry do his magic (did mine also and they look new), and bolt that bad boy on. 
713  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear sub frame bolt tape on: April 18, 2011, 09:24:14 PM
Hello, yes the rear hole in the floor pan ,below the seat. thanks John

The tape is 3/4" wide and is very different in black texture. Not like any other tape I could tell you to go get. I mentioned in my post what John had mentioned some time back concerning the tape being used for covering the hole for the water test. The picture is of what comes in the Quanta kit is is listed as "Technical Bullentin #69".

Took it out of my cleaner set up and it seemed to eye ball just under 50". Yoke ends have the staggered offset, U bolts, and beginning of orange/white stripe is just over 5" from centerline of yoke. Yoke had both orange and yellow paint on it. Plenty of orange paint on that yoke. When I flip it I will report any new findings. Some pictures:




715  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear sub frame bolt tape on: April 18, 2011, 06:28:25 AM
Got more info on the hole you are referring to? Pics?
This is what John is asking about and Quanta sells marking kits which have the tape or you can purchase it by itself. Others like heartbeat sell it also I'm pretty sure. JohnZ wrote some time back that he thought the tape was used to tape off the #3 hole for the water test..... I have the tape and will report back the size, etc...

Chick, what car was that driveshaft from?  Your 68 Z28? 

If so can you post the length from center of u joint to center of u joint.  Thanks.

Yes, the drive shaft is off our 68 Z/28 and the length is 52 1/2". I found the part # on the yoke but its very difficult to read other than a couple numbers.


AMA specs for '68 state 50.46" c-c.

Thanks William! Bryon, the info I supplied was from what I believe to be a 69 Camaro auto. trans and not my 68 Z/28. What a mistake but I had the wrong drive shaft! The yoke on the one I reported on is larger and will not even fit in our M21. After William's comment I thought I better double check and yikes, screwed up on this one. Will report on the 68 Z shaft after I complete the intitial cleaning.  Can tell you the yokes are offset and the length is approximately 50 1/2" in length.

Our late Dec. 67 built MO has the 678 block.

719  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Head Markings for 69 Z28 OIl Pan and Timing cover on: April 15, 2011, 06:19:09 PM
Joe, there were many different bolt suppliers for GM.  Each supplier had it's own head marking.

Paul

Paul is correct of course (Hi Paul), but to help a little we have two different suppliers on our 68 which include one supplier with the letters "R W B' evenly spaced around the inside edge of hex head and one that has two circles with what looks like a E L4 inside those two ciricles. Kind of wierd as the 4 looks like it is boxed in the L so maybe its something else but it is unique when you see one. I believe you can obtain proper marking bolts from different supply houses like Paragon, etc.

Running around like a nut trying to get ready.  Pulling out at first light on Wed morning.  Will be watching for Barney Fife this time.  The other good news is I'll have a Federal DEA agent in the truck with me.  I should let him do the drive by.............LOL.  My buddy has serious credentials........40 years in the police dept and has a Federal task force.  He wants me to drive by while he moons them.  Yeah, that'll happen.

Jerry 

So how was the racing Jerry and an update?
