Hey!   A jack with 'fenders'... or would that be 'bumpers'??   Smiley
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anybody ever follow up a listing like this to see whether it is legit or not? on: April 16, 2014, 07:43:03 PM
I've never checked into it but I've seen this same HO car and ad for several years. I'm sure that car (and all of the rest of the Camaro's for that matter) at that price are long gone and are a come on and gets them a lot of responce and attention.

I think it's been at least 10 yrs since I first saw that same ad..   Smiley   It's gotta be a SCAM of some kind...

I see we have a problem, don't we Gary? If you have an issue with me take it to PM's please.  Grin

I'm sorry Gary if you took my teasing the wrong way.    I was only attempting to put you onto a couple of clubs and a great fella in Pete who is in your area...   My apologies again..  Sad

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Delaware Camaro Clubs... on: April 15, 2014, 09:29:49 PM
We've all heard 'GaryC from Delaware' bemoan the fact that 'there's no camaro guys or camaro clubs or junkyards or ....etc ..  in Delaware' before...  Smiley ...

Well today I received the latest issue of the Chevy Classics magazine (from Ecklers).. which used to be 'Classic Chevy World' magazine published by the CCCI before  the *club* was sold and became an official business.   I've been a lifetime member going back to CCCI/CCW days, so I still get the magazine. Smiley    and in this month's edition (May 2014), there was a great article on a blue/white '69 Z28 from Delaware owned by Pete Jamieson of New Castle Delaware!   This article reminded me that I'd met Pete (and his gf Alison) at last year's Camaro Nationals in MD, and that he was from Delaware.. which reminded me of GaryC's moaning in the past .. Smiley

Pete and his girlfriend Alison are both great people, whom I very much enjoyed meeting last June.   I *think* he told me he was a member of this forum, although I don't recall seeing any posts from him in the past.   The magazine article also told the story of how he came by the Z28 (from his uncle)..  which Pete had told me about last June.   If Pete is on here, I Hope he speaks up.. so GaryC knows he is not alone there in Delaware.. Smiley

PS.  the article also mentioned two Camaro clubs which he is involved in..  'Delaware Valley Camaro club'.. and the South Jersey Camaro club.

GaryC (69z28)...  you need to get out more.. Smiley

I think all he would have to do is wrap some cardboard around the base portion (to prevent the wheels from rolling in their cargo bay of the bus), and affix a TAG to the jack with the SHIP TO: and SHIP FROM: information... and I beleive Greyhound would take it..   or at least they used to take stuff like that..
PS. Greyhound does not require that items be totally boxed as most shippers do..
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: need the experts help with stamp pad on: April 15, 2014, 09:13:19 PM
Lucky you I had the same instructions to my machinist, he botched it .... it got somewhat fixed but was preventable

When I rebuilt my Z28 engine (in 1976), I was very afraid to leave the block at the machine shop.. they wanted  to do a 'clean up' cut across the deck...  The machinist told me they would stop before they hit the pad, but I put a piece of duct tape across the pad, and wrote "DO NOT REMOVE" on it...  Smiley   fortunately they didn't machine the pad.. Smiley    I hear so many unfortunate stories, that I actually HATE to leave any of my 'stuff' anywhere with anyone. Smiley .. the 'I'm sorry's' don't undo their damage...

I'm not familiar with that part, or PN, either, but here's an old ebay listing with a photo.  I don't recognize the part, and it's identified as a part for a 454 Mercruiser-Quicksilver??  Could that be an error in Hooper's book?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GM-GMC-3887871-CAMSHAFT-THRUST-BEARING-FOR-MERCRUISER-454-QUICKSILVER-23-49124-/181326780245?nma=true&si=kA4%252FKicFYZKSnm4atRU9XiLTZXU%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Bryan,  re the 140 cam.. back in the late 60's and early '70's, I knew a couple of folks who tried the 140 cam, and neither realized any benefit from it nor were they happy with it (in street cars, used heavily for street racing).   I suspect your experience would be the same or even worse for how I suspect you'll use your car.

How was Super Chevy Memphis?  Smiley

I see one problem with your photo.... your license plate number has X-77 in it, and clearly your car is a X-33.... Cheesy

funny what the brain notices.. Roll Eyes

A lot of X-77's turn into X-33's over the years...  Smiley
That appears to be an original '69 tag..?

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: TRIALS AND TRIBULATION OF FINDING ORIGINAL DRIVE TRAIN OF 69 CAMARO L 78 on: April 13, 2014, 09:56:39 PM
a VERY neat story, Vince..  with an even happier ending. Smiley   I TRUST you still have the car and the parts are all married back together?  Smiley
NOW.  we need the REST of the story.. Smiley

PS.  Back in the day, after driving an L78 4sp in a chevelle with headers, I thought there couldn't possibly be any need for more power than that... Those things are stump pullers with HORSEpower to burn. Smiley

That's a great looking RS, Richard...  Smiley
15  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: JL8 Rotors : where to find race quality ones today ? on: April 13, 2014, 01:33:27 PM
I'm looking at a similar predicament...I'm in the process of piecing together a trans-am clone and I need to get a brake system that matches original as close as possible. Any suggestions on where to go? Willwood and Baer make some nice stuff, but it does not look original at all.

I've got a 'service duty' disk brake differential (service duty 4.11:1 POSI - ie. more plates, higher spring pressures) with the caliper brackets for the Corvette brakes; also have the appropriate Corvette rotors and calipers...  This was from Bob Christianson's '69 Z28 TA /IMSA racer that has been on the floor of my shop for 25 yrs or more.  I had planned to put this in my car at some point, but with my changed plans, I will never use this on my car.
