Here is a photo of one mounted on a 68 302 Z28:     http://picasaweb.google.com/LucasRestorations/JayS68RSZ281#5252024307394294850

This photo is from an engine on a 68 Z28 in a car being restored by Lucas Restoration.  Don't know if this is the original mount but it looks like the ones displayed above.

Well if the one above is correct, try this link:     http://www.paragonreproductions.com/popup.aspx?src=images/Product/large/1720.jpg 
Does this one look correct?

If so the catalog information is:     http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-357341-engine-mount.aspx

Haven't seen these mounts in person but I was thinking of ordering them for my '68 Z28 project.  Ceck out this link:  http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?userwatch~partnumstring~cadeiijf~104C~~~~F

They are built like the original non safety mounts.  Maybe someone has ordered these before and might have more information.

I bought mine at this link listed below but you have to buy a minimum of one case (6 Cans)
           http://www.ryderfleetproducts.com/cgi-bin/ryderfp/products/product_detail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1075969558.1242176029@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadegmkekmdecfkmcgfmdfoldflm.0&oid=49808

Like Jerry said above......it is not as thick and it shows the detail of the cast iron better.

I think Quatra is repackaging the Seymour paint and marketing under their name.......and selling it for more money.  I think John and I had this discussion before and came up with the same conclusion.

Jerry
Well I found the Seymour for a lot less than the Quanta.....bought 6 cans shipped to me for a total of $24.33.  Thanks again guys for helping me out.

Hey ....Thanks, Jerry....Was looking at the Seymour but had not seen any comments on it.  Will sure keep it in mind.  Now back to stripping and cleaning the paint off of the parts already painted.  Oh well....one step forward and two back.....LOL.

Many of the Corvette guys who don't have access to spray equipment prefer Quanta's Chevy Engine Orange; good color, and it's not as high-gloss as many of the other rattle-can paints (the original engine paint wasn't high-gloss).

Hey John.....Thanks again for always coming to my rescue, will add this supplier to my list.  Looks like a good site.

The best matching paint is by Martin Senour sold at most NAPA stores, but the bad is they no longer offer it in a rattle can. Their old part number for the rattle can is #7887, and their paint formulas for a spray gun are #90T 9954 or #99L 9954. Both are enamels, but the first one is acrylic enamel which most NAPA dealers can mix. The later is a synthetic enamel which very few dealers still stock. I have not found a suitable rattle can color available anywhere, but then again I haven't painted an engine with spray paint in years, it is all done with a spray gun.........................RatPack................
RatPack....this looks like the paint you mentioned....just not from NAPA though.

Thanks for the info....will put this on my list of supplies and suppliers.

Can someone recommend a good engine enamel that looks  like the original?  I started painting some of my external engine parts today and am not pleased with the color hue.....seems to be somewhat subdued....not bright enough as I want it to be.  It is VHT Sp123....makes a good finish but It does not seem to be the right hue.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

Oh, another item.  I don't know for sure if these pistons are weight compensated, that is if they are the same weight as the original forged ones.  We didn't pay any attention to this detail because we had the rotating parts rebalanced.

There is only one pin type....the difference is the pistons are cut for and supplied with pin locks.  If you plan on floating the pins in the rods then you have to use the pin locks to hold the pins in place.  If you plan on press fitting the pins in the rods then you can throw the pin locks away, the pins are held in place by the press fit in the rods.  Hope this is clear enough.

Are the pistons you bought 0.30 over and if so what was the part # for the speedpro rings if possible. Thanks
OOps, why I said SpeedPro I don't know.....Actually they are Sealed Power #E-251K 30 (.30 over).  They were supplied by my machinist that did all the work on my block, rods, and pistons.  BTW....the pistons are supplied with pin locks for floating pins (used in the '69 302s) but my engine is for a '68 302 which has pressed pins....we just threw the locks in the trash. There is another thread about these pistons so I will add it so that you might get more information on them.

Yes, they look very nice....look almost like the original equipment forged pistons.....and that's the only strike against them, they are not forged.  The way I was looking at it was that this was for a restoration engine and the engine wasn't going to be revved over 6,000 rpm anyway.

I always use SRP J and E brand forged pistons in all of the 302s that I rebuilt. What kind does Ricks sell? price? John
John.....check out this link.

Well....mine didn't that I bought several months ago.  Just put a set of SpeedPro rings on them today.
