Welcome Barry.  It's a bit hard to give much advice at this point.  Can you post a few pics?

I can't find any information on either car.

I guess at this point my advice would be to keep the car you really want to build and sell the other to help fund the restoration of the other. 

What are the axle ratios codes on the two cars?

I am looking for water pump casting numbers and dates from 230 and 250 cubic inch engines.  If you could post your information here, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Sorry to hear that Steve.

Try to get your car into MUSCLECAR REVIEW magazine.
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / 6 cylinder water pump data needed on: August 14, 2014, 02:49:51 PM
I am putting together some information on water pumps used on 67-69 Camaros.

If you have an original water pump from an L6 230 or 250 cubic inch engine, please post a picture.  Please try to include the casting number and date code in the picture or pictures.

Thanks!

Impossible to tell by that picture.  Paint daub looks fresh.

John, sure whenever you have them ready to go, just let me know.  No hurry.

Thanks for posting that Jerry.

Yes that smog pulley is interesting.  So we know of at least two cars now that had it.  Hmmmm....

BTW, Jerry have you ever seen any late 68 Z28 engines that used the 186 heads rather than the 291s?
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: technical articles by JohnZ on: August 10, 2014, 10:03:51 AM
Right.  Those are ALL great articles.  At this link.

Looks like 0128 is the date.  You had 0218, so I modified your post so it matches the picture.

Thanks!

One thing that you may want to double check is that all of the intake bolts are tight.  Do not over tighten them or break them off - but make sure they are good and snug.  Can't tell you how many times that has been an issue on engines I have worked on.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: August 07, 2014, 05:52:46 PM
I don't know if the valves being off would cause that issue or not.  I am not saying it would or it wouldn't.  But I think they would have to be off quite a bit to cause that problem.

How did you check for vacuum leaks? 

The old school way to check for vacuum leaks it to use an unlit propane torch or carb cleaner.  But this can be dangerous.  I am not telling you to do this.  But if you want to know, here is how it is done.  Again, if you do this, be CAREFUL.

I prefer the torch method, outside of course.

If all the vacuum hoses are original, it might be a good idea to just go ahead replace them.  Of course keep the originals.

Based on what I can see, it seems fine.  But I do not have that exact date for a comparison with another.

I am interested in what others think.
