I've haven't looked in a while because the paint is so thick, but it looks like a D 8 something.

Why do we have to take it so personal when someone gives their "opinion" as to whether or not something is legit?  I started out on this site quoting Colvin, saying I had a rare DZ block casting # and really thought I had something.  Then it was divulged that it wasn't so rare at all and Colvin kind of jumped the gun.  Info comes and changes things.  At first I thought screw you guys, you don't know what you're talking about.  Then I had a 480 dist. from a 69 DZ engine that was in my 68 and the engine was put in there 35 years ago.  The experts said the 480 was a restamp.  I could try to justify it all day long as being there before anyone would want or need to restamp something,  But the consensous of experts was that it is a restamp, so there is nothing short of me having a video of the dist. being made that is going to change what the experts say, so I have to live with it and am selling it on the basis and price of being a restamp.  Am I happy that this was the outcome? No.  But I have to accept the reality of things or be bitter and lash out.  I would rather not be bitter, so it's a choice of accepting reality.  I do not take it personal.  

Ed I wish you would reconsider.

Thanks Vince!
21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Wire stand on: July 05, 2014, 10:11:43 AM
I was looking through the 68 AIM and noticed on page 441 for the Z28 it shows the driver's side wire stand faces the firewall.  Mine is facing forward.  Is this a typo in the AIM or is my repro stand messed up?  Also, does anyone know what size the bolt is that holds the auto choke assembly to the manifold on the 68 Z?  I lost mine in the shuffle and the AIM just says production bolt.  Thanks.

   How long did your Pertronix last before it puked? I have one in my car and am curious. Good luck!


I bought it about 7 years ago but my car has been down for about 2 years, so I guess it lasted about 5.  But that's only about 2,000 miles or so.  Lots of posts about people having trouble with them.  I poo-poo'd it until this happened.  Staying with points from now on.

Found out my Pertronix distributor doesn't seem to work anymore and I've decided to go back to points.  Is there any one source for finding:  Good points, lubricator wick and stand, wire from points to coil, condenser?  Seems my original distributor is missing all but the points.   One of the screws that hold down the points as well, but I guess I could get that off an old distr.  I've found some of these things at corvette places but they want $10 just for the wick and stand.

Just a follow up.  Got the car running yesterday ( after a whole day of cursing as my Pertronix distributor seemed to be the reason it didn't start) and when I went to adjust the valves when hot, they were right on at about .016.  I lashed them cold at .018.  Some had to be tweaked a hair tighter or looser, but the cold .018 was pretty close.  Thanks all who contributed.  It's great to be on the road again.

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Balancer bolt on: June 21, 2014, 09:34:22 PM
Well, I have one that says TR and one that says Rockford.  I know I got a repro one once and it stripped out so I wanted to make sure I didn't use that one again.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Balancer bolt on: June 21, 2014, 05:54:35 PM
I've been going through all the threads without much luck.  What is the usual headmark on the balancer bolt?  And did it have a lock washer or a star washer?  In the AIM it looks to be a star washer.

Stock 302 other than the cam, lifters and rockers.  I have roller tipped 1.52's.  That thing really went a lot better than the engine I had with the LT1 cam.  In fact when I got the heads, they were supposed to have had the intake unshrouded as they were 1.94's, but I noticed it hadn't been done so I had it done when I got the heads fixed. The heads were also ported.  3.73 rear and m21.  No dyno in the budget.

Great article John.  I didn't used the sealer on the bolts so I will go back and take them out one by one.  I have to take 4 of them out anyway as I didn't install the alternator mount and need to repaint the wire stands.  I have Teflon sealant I used for the head bolts, is that OK?

I used the permatex oil resistant gasket maker.  I only put it on the head side of the gaskets as the blue ring was on the intake side only.  I decide to use just the permatex on the ends too.
