766  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Goodmark SS Hood on: October 14, 2008, 05:48:28 PM
  *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.

  *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.
768  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.
770  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.
777  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? 
779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Tail Light Bezels - Which Ones? on: August 22, 2008, 10:53:46 PM
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.
