Sorry, Disregard my info. It does not apply to the type of car you are building.
737  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Smog Pump Check Valve on: September 05, 2008, 01:45:14 PM
I have two new GM check valves (GM #22048212) but they don't look exactly like the one's offered by the venders. Are they incorrect for Camaro application?
I can post a pic if required. Thank you.

Yes, you can buy "Cast Blast" cast iron gray which is a Seymour paint product. Part #16-048. However, longevity and performance is increased if epoxy primer is used as a substrate.  I personally go the extra step. Your painter can mix the same thing on his system.

I should have been more explcit with my explanation.
                   
Dist block by John Z.:
  "The distribution block has no valving in it at all - it only activates its internal differential pressure warning switch (which lights the warning lamp in the cluster) when it senses a pressure differential between the front and rear systems."
   
     It senses a change but does not possess pressure management capabilities. Scott

Open the door. Verify free movement of latching mechanism. Lubricate. Adjust striker plate.
     
emanuelK, Read this thread:

Paint info. therin applies to dash top. Guidelines for dash face are different and should be semi-gloss.

  We are a little off the auto subject now but a word or icon pertaining to a unique situation or particular subject may be copyrighted.
  For example: Upon investigation the "money bag" symbol with the $ on it was found to have no copyrights attached. A gentleman copyrighted the symbol and now owns it's use exclusively. He may, and has, issued cease and desist orders against its use without his permission. And he can charge for its use. He does not excecise his authority in all situations but he does so against large corporations trying to circumvent guidelines with unethical business practices.
  Example # 2: Apple is just a word but as it pertains to a certain subject it is protected under copyright laws.
          Ex. 2a. L-78
  If one feels his business embodies a word or icon it is wise to search for infringement violations before embracing it as an identity marker.

There aren't. I see from your list you using the origional proportioning valve (the round one)

Pete ( member name: one bad 34) had a problem and I told him to temporarily eliminate the PV with just a brake line to eliminate PV as a problem. If the calipers operate correctly then the problem has been isolated. Now get another PV or rebuild yours.
744  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Good God In Heaven ... Please Help Me With These Brakes!! on: August 30, 2008, 10:42:26 AM
John,
 Wasn't onebad34 having similar problems. I couldn't find past post. And doesn't the piston in the MC have to return it's stroke fully to operate properly? Or would that affect the rears as well?
 I also had to give my friend my spare MC to replace his "new" one which also would not bleed. Fronts then bled straight away. Bench bled first as you say.
 I have been lucky but my days are numbered. Many are having replacement part problems.

    Why doesn't that surprise me?

No Jeff,
  I have no reason to be up that part of the state for a while. I think if you called them they would be happy to help. Answer your manufacturing questions, maybe send you a pic. If I can miraculously remember I can call tomorrow and see if they are open on Sat.

Randy,
   Begin process as stated in Rick's excerpt from the manual.  A. and C. apparently were contributing factors in my situation. B. and D. may be yours as well, or a combination of the  items listed. If it was running good once before there should be no need to change the jets unless it will run better with new jets.
   You have to check your timing prior to carb adjustments. Just because the fuel pump is new does not mean it is good. Check the pressure.
   Eliminate A, B, and C then perform D if neccessary and arrive at initial diagnosis. Keep in touch.
 
749  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Surging... on: August 19, 2008, 08:08:42 AM
 I can only tell you what I did to alleviate a similar problem. I did not have a hard starting problem however:
   
  Changed the points, Set dwell and timing. Reset float levels( holley 670 Street Avenger), Adjusted mixture w/ vacuum guage. Surge/Jerkiness now gone.

   How old are your ignition system components and what is the condition of the disributor? If it is sloppy and worn this will affect your performance.
   I look forward to other's comments on this subject as well. Others are more qualified for diagnostics than I.
   Footnote: I switched to full manifold vacuum( for vacuum advance) as per John Z's advice.
