I don't believe in the Easter Bunny either. :)

General Discussion / Re: parts sharing, Camaro and Nova?

There was never a 396/325 hp Nova in 69 as far as I know. Only 350 or 375 hp.

Can't say that I have personally seen a 69 big block Nova with AC.

Yes many Camaro parts are similar. So as far as engine brackets, etc. they should work.

But the car won't care. You can just make whatever you use work. 😀

Sounds good. Thanks!

Oh and you can call me Bryon if you want. 😀

I think 697 total Pontiac Trans Ams in 1969.

689 coupes and 8 convertibles.

Most coupes were Ram Air HO. 55 coupes and all 8 convertibles had Ram Air IV.

Getting a little off topic though.

Back to the Z28,,, who installed the cowl plenum air cleaner, and the big eared radiator cap,
I don't know much about the story on this car, I been busy detailing my own 69Z , and doing stuff since I retired 2 years ago.

The car was modified almost immediately by its original owner.

I really see no need to discuss this car any further. It's just a special paint Z28.

Search on about the car. That reading should occupy the better part of a day. If that's not enough, search the site.

This car has had WAY more attention than it deserves.

Much earlier in this thread it was suggested "Let sleeping dogs lie".

Engine pad pic is not the greatest, but I am not thrilled. 

Thank You Gary!  Sorry, I guess I must have forgotten to reply to this earlier.  Merry Christmas!  Glad the driveshaft turned out good.

Summarizing from my post to a different thread re my driveshaft (I had previously posted that I'd cleaned and painted my driveshaft long ago, but that driveshaft was from my Nomad, not the Z28..  thankfully!)..  So I found my original driveshaft and cleaned, measured it and photographed it.

Car:   09C (late) '69 Z28 with 302, M20 and 3.73 posi rear gear (all original to the car) owned since 1976, not driven since 1980.

Drive shaft length:  49-5/8" from U-joint center to U-joint center.

Paint stripes:   Orange and White stripes at the 11-13" mark from the Yoke end; yellow splash around 10" along...

U bolt
Orange stripe and possibly a white stripe.
Flanges in line

Thanks for the information!

Any chance there could be more than 2 stripes?

Welcome and thanks for posting!

Thanks Darrell.  I think there should be a third stripe.  Hard to see, but might be there?

Yes, if you have questions we can try to help out.

Verify block, heads, crankshaft, rods, pistons, intake, carb, distributor, water pump, pulleys, etc.

Clem, you have a huge amount of experience and knowledge that could be beneficial on this site. 

But we need to move on. Please don't keep bringing up this topic. It is not productive.

It would be awesome if you could share some information on rebuilding and/or tuning carbs.  Maybe in the restoration section.
