I called Lo Jac when my John Deere was stolen. They have a dealer network and install price depends on where you are from a dealer. They actually come to you for the install and no you cannot watch. The one I called had a yearly fee. You have to call them to activate it. Now there are some devices (usually installed on boats) that have stiff fees but they actually call you when it moves if you have it set. As far as immobilization devices remember most older car thefts are done with trailers or tow trucks. At hotels at big shows you see cars on or in trailers backed up against something. The theft stuff is most likely on the truck.

If I remember right you are using a replacement carb you bought. Think they will take it back? Also to get you running until your original parts are done right you could go by O,Reilys and pickup one of there 89.00 or 99.00 buck HEI,s. When you get things ironed you could get 50.00 for it at a swap meet. I think they also have rebuilt point distributers ( cast iron and not correct) but a friend loaned me one when I was sorting out one of my cars. It is not the correct stuff but I think you want ride for now. This might get you on the road to see what else you need to do to the car.

A friend is doing a 68 day two 427 car. He will have the bumble bee stripe. Does anyone have pictures of the 427 emblems like Harrell, Yenko, and others used? And what were they? 67 Corvette?
This car was a matching # 327 210 hp with factory air that worked and  drive train that ran. If someone has needs for something PM me.

Don,t know if it is correct but Bridgeport has a duct seal compound part # DS 100. In teardowns I have seen what looks to be similar It is like a non hardening putty in 1 pound packs. Can be found at electrical supply houses.

Do things one at the time. I think Charlies carb is going to be your trick.

I have been impressed with evaporust. When trying to remove headlight adjusters from the plastic parts I tried everything. Finally sprayed them with evaporust and the next night they turned right out. Since then I have sprayed rusted threads of bolts and they turn right out.

I think if you could borrow a known working carb from someone that would be my next try. Some carb rebuilders use test motors to check their builds before sending to you. We have used a couple here on the east coast and when it comes back they say only adjust the idle and that is all it took.

Make sure when you drive the pins back they go in tight. You don,t want one to fall out.

I to think vacumm leak. I have seen where if you remove the carb and check both sides of the gasket for marks to insure that your intake manifold flange and your carb base are completely covering all areas might help. When I replaced my Z,s aftermarket intake with the correct unit, I had problems similar to yours. I too worked on the distributer and worked on a carb that needed nothing only to find a leak at the fitting supplying the brake booster. With a noisy engine and fan blowing it can be hard to find. I have also used duct tape to seal all openings to the engine and put canned smoke in the PVC hole and pumped compressed air in the engine. But be easy or you could blow out a gasket and cause an oil leak. Using the compressed air trick with the engine off you even hear the leak.

That vin should be 12A or 12B. Probably too early for the cowl hood. It also has no tach,console, or gauges. I can,t remember when the tach became a requirement.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Hours of body part install on: September 17, 2014, 09:32:16 AM
unless there is a car you can look at that this guy has done all this work to I would have to think about. I have seen many friends who ended up going and getting there partially complete car after relations with the original guy fell through only to find out much of the work needed to be redone. Even though I am not much into new bodys, I would thing they were put together with some type of jig and done by people that do it everyday and have learned from past mistakes of how to do it right. Plus I think 175 hours is low. Just my opinion.

Kind of neat that he uses the finger in the hole trick. I thought I invented it.
