Carbs are reproductions

Try switching the actuators side to side and see what happens. Also you might see if the inner door is rite up against the bumper, I had a Z28 a while ago I had to trim down the bumper.

OOPS, I meant "T"

Id be running from this 1. Stamp is V0610DZ and its a "618" block with a C-12-9 cast date?
BTW there are 2 pictures in the auction that are  396/427, the 1 that says Hi-Perf Pass and the last one which is a casting date by the pan rail off a big block.

The painted headlight door actually has movement on the inner aluminum door/hinge assembly. There are some captive cage nuts on the inner. If you loosen the screws slightly and the small body nuts toward the fender end, you would be surprised how much you can move them, including up and down.

I thought there was a darker N34 wheel used till approx 10/68? Almost a Walnut colour?
My N34 appears much darker than John Z,s, I wonder if there was production run differences?

Wrong upper alternator bracket too, should not have that Big Hole, probably changed when they realized it had the wrong water pump? Just guessing.
 Inner fender flaps appear to be missing, rad cap is small ear, wrong battery, wrong pcv valve and hose. Not picking but just noting, all good points for $ negotiations? Could be a neat car, too bad someone colour changed it.

Trim tag code 69 = Cortez Silver,  Car looks Orange?  Engine stamp is way too early for 02B, just restored a 02B Z, stamp was V0206DZ. Car has the wrong water pump.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Clutch Lower Push Rod Alignment & AIM? on: July 09, 2014, 08:20:50 PM
What I don't like is if you install as per AIM, it trys to push the fork off the bellhousing ball, and it wears out the fork clip. JMO again.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Clutch Lower Push Rod Alignment & AIM? on: July 08, 2014, 12:02:20 AM
AIM is wrong IMO. I have been putting them from the inside for 40 yrs. My 69 Z28 has been installed opposite to aim since I bought the car in 74.

I cant believe how the verbal actions of certain individuals can cause such a predicament, Why Cant we all just get along?

 Ed is a MAJOR bonus to this site, I would sincerely Hope he can get past what has transpired and bring his wealth of knowledge back to us.

Kurt  - I Agree 100% also, some of the posts had unnecessary attitude.

Mike, Kudos, Glad you got Full Points for the trim rings !!

This debate about the different style trim ring has been going on for years, and will probably go on.
 I personally think the 4 clip style was the assembly line installed trim ring when the Z28 was assembled and the full serration type was a superceded/updated design trim ring. I don't honestly know how #9796696 serrated trim ring could have been used in 1969, that part number never even showed up until the 72-74 GM parts book. BTW 67 Corvette used the same 4 clip trim ring and the GM parts book for Corvette shows the #9796696 trim ring as the superceded number for the 4 clip trim ring.

JMO of Course.

My RSZ28 trunk lid, 06A (June 18th) no tabs and the spoiler rear attachment is encapsulated washers nuts, spoiler had never been off. Owned the car since 74, no oval lower hole. True D80 car, Canadian Docs.

You should get at least 1/2 points on trim rings. LOL.

I Agree 100% with Gary, I'm  convinced the 4 clip outer type were the line installed trim ring in 69, As I posted before on the trim ring post in "Originality" Section.

It was a great turn out!!  With the weather iffy all the cars got in and out of the building without issue.  My second trip netted a score of 97.1 or 4855 points out of 5000.  A lot is owed to Bob Harris, Larry Christensen, Brad Mcadam and Jerry Macneish.  They all helped me over this past year to bring the car to this point.  I will post some pictures of the car at the show shortly.  I like the fact that they were very clear on how certain things should be on this car (1969 Z-28 LA car lemans blue)  It seems that all the discussion and research has clarified just how this car came from LA plant in April 1969

 Congrats on the score.    What did the judges decide on the trim rings?
