I put the 235 60 15's on and they seem to be ok. For now...will see.

I am running 15 x 7 Torque Thrust. The springs are a concern because they are the original ones and they do sit lower than the Gold car with new Moog Z28 springs. I am going to measure the tires when I get to the tire store and see what is up.

I am thinking about putting four P235 60 R15 on all corners of the Silver Z with the Torque Thrust wheels and will put original style tires on the Rallys. Will this size tire fit the front of the car without rubbing?

I drive my cars a lot. To work, 10 miles from home, to meetings and on the interstate. I better change these tires out. I have always run BF Goodrich Radial TA's but would like to check out others. I was thinking about Good Year Eagle STs. I had them on my 78 Z28 in high school. Does anyone have any other suggestions? All ears.

Thanks

Lawrence

I will count the turns and be back in touch.

Guys,

I am starting to get nervous about two sets of BF Goodrich Radial TA's that I am running on two of my cars. Each set I bought in the mid 90's. They have been on and off my cars, stored indoors out of the sun. I am thinking I need to bite the bullet and replace both sets. What do you guys think?

My Gold Z28 steering is noticeably harder to steer at stand still vs the Silver Z28. Both are manual steering. I read on the site that Z28 with special steering used a shorter steering arm. How can I measure this or what do I measure so I can compare the two?

Thanks,

Lawrence

It does look nice (hopefully it has windshield wipers by now). So in your opinion do you think it is a $88k car?

I hope he gets it.

James is a friend and is painting my X66 Convertible. He is an incredible technician to detail, especially to originality. That is what I really appreciate. It is much harder to restore to 100% original than restoring to just making it look pretty. But ya'll all know that.

I have seen this car, heard it run looked it over. It is well done.

Yes the non shouldered is 1 1/8", and the shouldered fastener is 1 5/16"
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Intake manifold bolts - 69z28 on: January 19, 2014, 04:21:49 PM
I found in the junk yard both "M" and "C" head marks. The 68 Impala had "CS" head marks. The shouldered fasteners holding the lifting hooks did not have washers per your note 69Z28freak. The other fasteners on the intake are washerless too, right?
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Intake manifold bolts - 69z28 on: January 18, 2014, 10:19:14 PM
As far as I know the intake bolts were un-shouldered except for the bolts on the engine lift brackets. They should be shouldered.


I agree. That is what I found in the junkyard, and what I put on my car.

Guys,

I went to the junk yard yesterday and found a few good engines with the original intake manifold fasteners on them. First off I ran across a 1965 "HB" coded block. 327/300 HP four speed HP engine in an old Chevy pickup. The intake manifold bolts had the "C"  and "M" head marks. I harvested all 12 and now are soaking in a bucket of Simple Green. I then ran across a 68 Impala with the "HJ" stamped block. 327/250 four barrel PG engine. This engine still had the original lifting hooks with the "shouldered fasteners". The shouldered fasteners had "FP" head marks. Most of the intake manifold bolts had already been removed from this intake manifold but I did remove one which was coded "CS" inside a circle with three radial lines. Lastly, I ran across a 67 four door Chevelle. This car had the 327/275 PG with AC installed. I was running out of time so I just took one intake manifold bolt out of it and it was a "M". I also got a decent 834 alternator with a Jan 20 1969 date code from the 65 Chevy Truck. Went to Autozone to test it and it passed. Pretty funny....So in summary I am going to put on the Silver car the "C" head mark intake manifold fasteners that came in a box with other parts. I am guessing these were on the car originally. When I got the car the engine had just been rebuilt and the engine shop used new fasteners on the intake.
