When I took my originals out in 1983, all of the shorter leaves on both sides were broken in half right at the alignment bolt hole, the only one supporting the weight of the car was the main leaf that ran from the front bushing to the rear shackles.
Do you remember how many miles were on the leaves at the time you removed them?

Good to know. Thanks. I went back and forth. I ended up replacing them. The bands literally fell apart during removal but surprisingly they were not sagging much. They just looked to be in really poor shape.
That is what happened to mine too. The bands just fell off and the arches looked pretty bad. But so far so good.

I had my original springs re-arched at a heavy duty truck spring shop and have had very good success with ride height and ride.
I would like to know how long it has been since re-arching?

First off I must admit that my springs were not sagging bad, but to answer your question the springs have been re-arched for one year.

Thanks guys.
652  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

I used Krylon and Rust o leum on my car.

Thanks guys....thats what I thought....just wanted to make sure.....made to many mistakes years ago (getting rid of parts i shoudn't have).

We all did.

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
