Danny....would it be possible to show a couple of photos of the PCV valve....curious to see, if it is the original, what it looks like.  Thanks in advance.

Might be interesting to see a complete spring tag.  I think there was a post recently about finding the right spring tag so that a correct repro could be made (might have been on TC site).  Man you have some good original stuff on this car....could be very interesting for an example of the correct restoration.

BTW....that WT stamped master cylinder is the correct one for the 68 Z28.

Danny...as to the number on the firewall...yes it is a run number.  On my '68, I have the number 22 on the firewall, inside front valence, and on the backside of the spare wheel.  I've seen several early cars that have a ballast resistor....usually added because of a faulty resistor wire.  Might check the wiring from the resistor and see if it goes to the coil.  If it has a standard '68 radio then it should be 12v powered so it wouldn't need a resistor.

Water pump?  Were you recently hunting for a 326 water pump?  Thought I responded to a post on here about someone wanting a 326 pump and we discussed dates.

Danny....one of the shifter rods has a loose lock nut .  Did you do that?  Also...you showed a ballast resistor...there was no ballast resistor in the '68.  It was a ballast resistor wire.  Thanks for the photos...will keep comparing to my 07C.  Already have noticed something interesting....my engine block and heads have casting dates almost identical to yours but my engine assembly date is 06-19.  Guess they had a stockpile of those dates and were still using them even in June.

Kurt...well said and I agree 100% with your actions.

BTW....welcome home.  Hope your year away was eventful and enjoyable.

51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1111467 distributor on: July 06, 2014, 10:11:37 PM
For an example, my 06-19-68 engine has a distributor date stamp of 8F4.....so this looks like a two week spread.

Ed...Am very sorry to see you go but I can understand your feelings.  Will dearly miss your presence and the knowledge you shared with us.

God speed......

For you 1968 guys....my original setup is identical to the one shown by Dave in the TC post.  And this is the setup that screws into the back of the block....not behind the guages.
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Which water pump needed for '68 Z28 on: June 04, 2014, 11:16:30 PM
Hi Danny.....At one time I was asking the same questions that you are now asking.  Back in the 80's, I had replaced my water pump with a rebuilt one that had a different cast number and had the 3/4" bypass output.  Several years ago I started looking for the correct pump that would be right for my car.  Well finally....after looking all this time, I found a 326 pump with a 1/2" bypass output on eBay that seemed right for my engine.  My engine build date is 06-19-68 and all of the engine components have casting dates in the first week of 05-68 and the pump I found had a casting date of E-1-68 so that is what I am going to use.  I don't think I will ever find another one that would be any more acceptable than the one I found.

Hope you can find an acceptable one as well.

Danny......here is my original that is nine days later than the one you are displaying.  And no my VIN is not one digit short....the last digit is very light....you can barley make it out.

If you are referring to the Powerglide, #3831527 underpan fits a 168 tooth flex plate.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: CRG etiquette concerning parts on E Bay on: March 10, 2014, 01:53:54 PM
HBC is usually more expensive for the same parts that can be purchased elsewhere. Example: BB valve covers are way over priced when compared to the exact same ones sold by Crane Corvettes (both eBay pricing). Do your shopping.
  Unless they (HBC or anyone else for that matter) have a truly one of a kind, hard to impossible to find part that you must have, keep looking.
Also, do not believe an item sold for XYZ usage is actually correct. Many times it isn't. As other have said here, post the URL for review.

Mike
For an example about HBC pricing.....for some time now, I have been watching a NOS Y55 battery on HBC with a price of $1650.00.  I recently found and bought one identical to the HBC battery for a fraction of their price.  Like Mike said, keep looking and keep doing your shopping.  Also, as Chick stated, keep doing your research.  You may be new to the hobby but one of the keys is to continually research, research, research.  Don't ever quit looking for parts as well as information and if you still have questions, just get on here and ask.

Danny....I understand your anxiety....seven years ago on March 1, I had surgery for late stage prostate cancer.  I still have some anxiety, even today, but I have managed to live an eventful life.  As a brother in the hobby and also as a brother in cancer survival, I hope and pray that you will also conquer and survive your cancer to live a long, eventful life.  Good luck and God bless you and yours.

This Master Parts Catalog mentioned is for the Camaro only.  I do have a later Catalog for Corvettes but I will have to locate it ........will check back in later.
