Thanks guys.
647  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Casting Dates on: July 28, 2009, 05:53:09 AM
Question for you guys. On a 08E build car or any car for that matter should the casting date of the heads be before, after or real close to the casting date of the block? I am referencing a small block 300 HP setup.

Thanks!

Kurt,

I agree with you, I think mine was replaced too. Based on the dates. I guess the dealer smeared the undercoating on the tank?

Here is my date code.

The tank does not look like it was replaced because it has under coating all over it that matched what was under the car? But of course I dont know for sure.

Thanks,

My original tank is out of my car and I hunted around last night and found the numbers.

My car is a 69 Z/28 03D build date and the gas tank date code is 45 69.

My tank leaks in the right front corner of the tank. Not on a seam but through the metal itself. Weirdest thing it looks like there are a bunch of tiny holes grouped together and the gas just seeps through there. I would like to restore the tank and use one day. Does anybody know of a gas tank restoration shop?

Thanks,

Lawrence

The "309" master cylinders are on Ebay. They look just like the GM without the "US" stamp. That is where I bought my back up four years ago. I am guessing they are still there. If not call Billy at White Post Restorations and see if he has one. whitepost.com

Be patient you will find what you want and not have any questions about the purchase. I am sure you are already doing this but surf, Team Camaro and The Super car site for parts. That is what I did and found good sellers.

Good luck

How much body work needs to be done?
What color are you painting the car?
Is the shop a collison repair facility or a resto shop of other collectible cars?
Is the shop going to completely disassemble your car place the body on a rotissiore?
Will you replace all the interior, rebuild the motor, tranny, replace the entire chasis components?

There is a lot of work to a frame off restoration
656  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Front Bumper nuts in fender extensions on: July 05, 2009, 03:05:39 PM
When I painted my car I lost one of the bumper nuts that is pressed into the lower fender extension. These nuts hold the outer bumper bolts to the car.

Does anyone know where I can buy just one nut? Or a few would be fine.

Thanks!

Here is the picture of what I need.

I just had my steering box rebuilt on my 69 Z and it is leaking grease from under the top lid. It appears that the guy who rebuilt it used form a gasket instead of using the real gasket. I looked online and NAPA did not list one of these gaskets. NPD had one but for $43!! I dont want to pay that kind of money for a gasket. Anybody have any ideas on where to look?

Is this a manual or power steering gear?

I had to put a new tank in my 69 Z the old one had a hole in it.

I know that the tanks are suppose to be 18.5 gallons but I think mine may be a little smaller? It seems to fit like the original, but I recently put in only 12.5 gallons of gas in the tank while the needle was reading 1/8 of a tank? I would have expected to put in more like 15 gallons. I guess the sending gauge could be off or the needle off but was wandering if anyone else has experienced this.

Also my low fuel light use to come on at 1/8 of a tank and now it will not lite up at that level. I have not run the car with much less fuel than that so it still may lite up? It also use to lite up when I went around a turn with low fuel and nothing now. I did take my gauges out of the car when I did the work maybe something came unplugged? Any ideas on this would be helpful too.

Thanks,
