316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 68' Z/28 on ebay for 45K on: April 11, 2011, 10:30:31 PM
the POP shows to have J50 (power Brakes), it should show J52 (power disc brakes) which is what mine shows
After closer examination the POP does seem to show the (J50&J52) Power disc brake option but it doesn't show a radio option.
This car has a VIN 4658 units before mine, has a transmission one month prior to mine, and the engine manufacture date is one month after mine.

I have a '68Z, I am the second owner, bought it in '72, and it is an 07C car.  My numbers sure don't match up with this car, especially the POP.  I have to go to a baseball game right now but when I return I will match up my car and post some differences. For one, the POP shows to have J50 (power Brakes), it should show J52 (power disc brakes) which is what mine shows.  As I said I just took a quick look at the POP, will try to look closer later.

Rodent....
It is stamped MUNCIE on the handle and it appears that it is for a '67 or '68 Camaro.  The same basic shifter was used for both the Muncie  and the Saginaw transmission....The one used for the Muncie transmission had MUNCIE stamped on the handle and the one used for the Saginaw transmission had nothing stamped on the handle.    The shifter rods were different for each transmission.

All big block engines were assembled at the Tonawanda (NY) engine plant.
320  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rear spring mount on: March 13, 2011, 11:03:13 AM
Is rear end suppose to be perfectly centered? Drive shaft centered in hump of car? Should tires have same clearence on both sides?  
In a word.....Yes....if stock Chevy.  With your modifications....I guess whatever works.
321  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rear spring mount on: March 12, 2011, 04:09:26 PM
Looks like they have moved the rear spring mounting inboard of the rear frame....it should be centered on the frame.  Another big clue is the sectioned gas tank...the end has been lopped off several inches.  I am enclosing a link that shows the proper rear spring mounting.

324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 Distributor Hold Down clamp on: January 05, 2011, 10:08:11 AM
So from Jerry's observations, it would seem that we at least have all 67's, 68's and early 69's using the wire clamp, then changing to the stamped steel clamp, with the changeover possibly somewhere early 69.
My 1968 07c Z28 has the stamped steel.
325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Spark plug wire Heat shields on: January 04, 2011, 09:50:26 AM
I agree with you, John.  I know when I disassembled my original '68 engine, the left brackets and the bolts that mounted them to the block were painted orange....indicating to me that they were mounted to the engine when it was painted at the factory.  The shields were apparently added later at the assembly line....along with the right side ones.
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: lets reunite another 302 with the original car on: January 04, 2011, 09:28:44 AM
Ken.....Yep, the original block.  Has been "validated" to my satisfaction.  I have owned the car since 1972, am the second owner, and I know for sure it came from my car......I'm the one who removed it.  I have talked to the original owner, he lives only about a mile away from where I live, and he says the engine was never touched when he owned the car.

BTW....we have discussed the 50 difference in the VIN's before over on TC.

Here is a picture of my '68Z, 07C block stamping.  You have to look real close to see the last number of the VIN, hard to make out.  The last two are "99".

Nice find....I do notice that the black paint at the fire wall continues over the top cowel area. I thought the factory painted up to the edge
Here are a couple of links to photos showing the cowl area paint on my original '68 Z28.

Some software is flagging the forum as unsafe. Google says:
"Part of this site was listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days."
That *was* true. That warning should go away now that the hacks have been purged.

Kurt....my Firefox browser is doing this.  According to them you can request a review and they will list the site as safe.  Am including a link to the review page....

Hope this helps.

If you could set it out in the sun I'm sure it would work better.  Even the Evapo-Rust works better when it is hot so I set it out in the sun.  It evaporates a lot faster that way but i just add water to bring it back up to the proper level and it works the same.

Also, let us know if you vary the mix ratio and find a difference in the effectiveness of the solution.
