No one has given me the answer. A friend thinks the trans linkage connection is the problem but I have not found a part to work yet. I did play with the adjustments and got it into low but now it does not go into park correctly. I am installing a car lift soon and get back on it with out laying on the floor.
212  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 RS for sale on Ebay.... whats wrong with this car on: December 22, 2010, 08:52:12 AM
I don,t think anyone was mean. They were just showing expertise in a hobby that they are serious about. Watching BJ a 69 came through at 70K or so and shortly later a very nice one came through at 1/2 that. My wife asked why and I told the first was real and correct and the second one probably was not. The important thing is to try get what you pay for and what you want. I paid more for for my 52,000 unrestored 69 L78 than I did for my frame off 69 Z28 RS even though the Z is very much nicer.

Mine ie a Carter Q Jet. It has a line in the front to the right of the fuel inlet. A 3/8 rubber line will slide up on it. It is open now.
214  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Fuel Return lines on: December 14, 2010, 08:23:12 AM
I have a Q jet on my clone SS car that does not have a return fuel line. The return port is open and I have never seen any fuel come out even though I have driven the car under all conditions from normal driving to shifting at 5500 RPM full throttle. I was going to plug the port but a knowlegable friend says I should not because it vents the carb. Should I plug It or plumb it away from the engine or leave it alone? If fuel did come out it would spray right on the intake manifold.

Holley has an intake that is very close in height of the original Z intake. It was on my Z when I bought it and fit fine. If you determine that is your problem I can get you the model number. I still have it but have put an original intake on the car.
216  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: rectangular port intake on round port heads on: October 26, 2010, 01:18:09 PM
Thanks John,
I think we will try it for appearance. The car has more power than the tires can take already. This is that same LA car orange car Joo8 we discussed before.
217  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / rectangular port intake on round port heads on: October 25, 2010, 01:56:07 PM
My brother has whats is supposed to be a 72 454 in his 69 ss. He was told the heads were rectangular port but they are not. Since the car looks like a L78 he bought a 163 L78 intake. If installed on the round port heads will it work? Which gasket to use? Will performance suffer over and aftermarket aluminum round port intake? Any opinions appreciated.

My X33 RS is a Scuncio car from RI. I just thought this guy might remember it but he has not replied.

221  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: M22 fluid leaks and checking on: October 12, 2010, 02:11:40 PM
According to Danny Nelson ( the 4 speed guy at most large shows) there are two main causes for leaks. 1st is overfilling, if the trans is not level such as raiseing the front or rear only or filling while out of the car it will leak. He even told me to do a 1/2 inch below the hole. The 2nd is the cluster gear shaft at the front of the case where it touches the bell housing. 4speedman.com machines a groove on the shaft for an O ring in his rebuilds. He told me a trick about this one that worked on my Z car. Loosen the trans bolts about 3/8 inch and slide the unit back. Nothing else has to be loosened. Now you can see the shaft. Put some good sealer on a business card and carefully slide it in over the shaft hole. Tighten the trans bolts and ride. I tryed it and it works. I even do it when replacing a trans whether I know it leaks or not.

My car has the return on the carb but not the return line. I plugged the return and it did not run right. I was told that it is a vent also. I run mine open with no line and have never seen anything come out of it.
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 4 spd shifter hole for a 69 on: October 08, 2010, 06:40:08 AM
When my 69 was redone the guy had a 68 Hurst shifter he located the hole with. I later got a 69 shifter and installed it. It would not go into 2nd or 4th until I reworked the floor to move the the hole back.
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ignition buzzer and glove box installation on: October 05, 2010, 03:18:07 PM
Does anyone know what makes the ignition buzzer work on a four speed car? I know there is a contact in the column but does it have anything to do with the clutch switch or the reverse light switch. I checked the wiring diagram in the AIM but it crosses 3 pages and is not very clear. The reverse linkage from the column to the trans is not on my four speed car due to headers and the clutch switch is evidently not connected either.On my automatic car it does work when you open the door with the key in but that car has working reverse lights and no clutch switch.

Carolina Blue is team color for sports teams at the University Of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They paint the streets blue when they win big games. The busses and firetrucks in Chapel Hill are Carolina Blue. Tarheel fans are serious people who are often seen wearing Carolina Blue everything. Back in the 60,s and 70,s Carolina Blue cars were very popular here and still are. The Duke fans even liked it but we called it Baby Blue. The cruize ins and shows are slowing down here but there are a few more. If I find A real one I will check the codes and post.
