All big block engines were assembled at the Tonawanda (NY) engine plant.

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.

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.

321  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.

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.

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.

I never knew about this!!

I'm giving it a try right now.  Smiley
Let us know the results.  I have been using Evapo-Rust for some time now and it works great but am tired of paying out the nose for it.  Would love to find something that works great yet it doesn't empty your wallet.

330  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Gas tank cleaning - need help on: July 10, 2010, 04:41:30 PM
POR15 and several other companies have cleaning/restoration kits on the market. They all generally involve having to remove the tank and using caustic liquids (acid), so I'd suggest having it boiled out at a radiator shop and then restored. If money is a big issue, then you can do it yourself, but it does take considerable time and effort.
My mechanic's shop does do this and his price was really reasonable when you consider your time.
I found out the hard way that boiling in a radiator shop does work but it has it's draw backs.  When I was working we had a tank on a diesel suburban boiled and it worked great for awhile......then it started to run very rough and had no power.  The mechanic removed the fuel filter and cut it open and it was clogged with specks of black paint....that threw us for awhile til it finally dawned on us that the black paint specks looked like radiator paint.  The radiator shop had not rinsed the tank very good or it took awhile of driving for the sloshing fuel to dislodge the remaining specks of paint.
So if you do have it boiled then make darn sure you get it rinsed completely clean.
