736  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: breather hose filter on: October 31, 2008, 11:16:33 AM
What was the specific year and engine usage for that part? It's clearly a flame arrestor, and that function was served on most Corvettes by a fine mesh screen press-fitted on the end of the elbow inside the air cleaner.

I don't know. I found it with my NOS parts and referenced it in a catalogue which stated it's discontinuation. It is obviously not applicable to my 327 and thought it belonged with a different hose configuration. Or even if it pertained to Camaros.

Is this breather hose filter discontinued or am I mistaken? Thank you.

Have unknown NOS parts in my stock. I know what they are NOT for. Assistence required by book owner.

i cannot say how well the Nova hoods fit. As stated, I want to know how well the new  Camaro repos fit as well. I can tell you this. We ended up throwing the Nova repo fenders out that came w/ the car. I repaired the GM ones with lower parts cut from those worthless pieces of scrap. It would appear that the latest, higher quality Camaro repos are better. I'm not yet updated on Nova parts. Helping a friend restore one on spec. NC? I might have one but shipping will smoke your wallet.

Kurt, I was able to delete it. I just wanted to solidify your electrolysis procedure and suggest it's value in restos as a substitution for cabinet blasting. I found it quite an asset in it's money and time saving over the years.

I don't want to do this again. When I quoted someone my comment ended up INSIDE the purple/lilac quote box. Now I cannot edit it.

  *Make sure you get one that was recently manufactured. 4 years ago I did a 67 for a customer who bought a Gdmark hood. The crown was wrong. I had to block the sides and jack the center down at the peak to correct. As expected the top buckled a bit but fortunately hoods are easy to block. Why? He wanted me to and paid accordingly.

  *L78 steve: I am presently doing an L-78 Nova with a good SS hood. I've become aware that correct louver support tabs can be purchased to convert a standard hood. Outside of that, the design simplicity between the two remains unchanged.

  As I am also looking for a GM SS Camaro hood I am interested in the fit of the new repo ones also.
744  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Will a Pontiac TH400 Transmission fit a TH350? on: October 03, 2008, 06:00:02 PM
  *That tranny is longer. The tailshaft housing would have to be changed and that means changing the mainshaft. Our Camaros require a shortshaft 400.
  *Some Pontiac trannys have multiple application mounting holes. Others will not fit your Chevy block.  Exactly which P. trannys will bolt up to the Chevy block I am unsure but the length alone will not be applicable for your requirements.
745  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 01, 2008, 09:20:49 PM
 At 50K miles a car's shock piston has travelled up and down in excess of 20 million times. I used to race snowbobiles and suspension monitoring was important and they traveled even more. They affect handling, braking, tire and suspension wear and performance. As they generate heat their performance decreases even when new. Or when expensive rebuildable gas units are used. Now one can imagine the effectiveness of a 39 year old non performance shock. Aquisition of new correct spirals to retain the authenticity of your car may be in your best interest.

Sorry, Disregard my info. It does not apply to the type of car you are building.
747  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
