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.

 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.

Thanks Dave,
 I have'nt had to replace any for that reason and yes the casting is different. Can't see ever having to replace any so I'll have them for another 22.

 Afternoon,
    I've had a pair of new control arm shafts for 22 years. Do they have value for a correct restoration of a valuable car or are they just over the counter replacements?  My Jane cars don't justify using correct parts that belong on a 50k or higher car.

    Casting #381904 GM 40
Thank you

 Thank you. I do understand paint deterioration. The different appearence between the dash and door tops of relics Ive had  is substantiated by this info. That is why I'm glad I found this site. I've done many jobs and some for people who claimed to possess a wealth of knowledge. Even about their own high $ cars.

My 67, origionally 717 standard had non-chrome A-pillars and the one I junked had chrome pillars/deluxe gut.  I just have never seen a suede 67 and want to know why. I have not had a 68 of my own since '82. Going to get one sorry uncut one in a month and I'll be curious about dash.  Thanx.
821  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Help! Painting Monday!!!....I can't find the correct info to do this right...... on: August 16, 2008, 03:43:15 PM
 I stand corrected. The 5 stars know more than I. Why then didn't the '67 code 717 I parted out not have a textured dash? The car was parked in the 70's w/ 34K after it got popped in the nose. This car was never taken apart. A search finds someone(Mark?} stating they were usually painted suede. What does that mean? Because I would like to paint my black dash if this is correct.

The generals must have a lot on the plate today too. They didn't have a suede texture. That full gloss assessment again. Interior: Have them cross PPG 9266 ( industry standard semi-gloss) if they don't shoot that brand. If they have black lacquer in their mixing system they will know the aspects of full gloss lacquer.

  Try that red rectangle at the top of the page to help narrow your search. Use the words in your questions to do a keyword search in the search option. Past posts can be tremendously helpful. Print the pertinent info. and hand it to your painter so there is no discrepency This should help you answer some of your Q's for your cramming for the final. I'm sure by the end of day your situation will be resolved.

   Hi, I looked back through posts and used different keywords in the search engine but I cant find info.
Somebody recommended a cleaning/rust converting detailing product with before and after pics of an engine    (Not a chevy engine)

It was a  base model 69 survivor that the gentleman posted. Thank you, Scott
