General Discussion / Speedo Cable Broke
« on: January 06, 2023, 05:56:01 PM »
Went for a ride yesterday in one of my Camaros. Trying to get some drive time in... Driving along, looked down, going 60. Looked down a minute later it was on Zero. Pulled the trans gear, it was perfect. Pulled the cable out and it broke 2" from the dash connection. Got the 2" broken piece out.
Searched many places online and NAPA and O'reilly... ALL have 63". I stretched out the cable with the broken piece and measured it 3 times, it is 62"? Will 63" work? Where does the slack go? I assume they are measuring the longest point, which would be the insert?
Anybody have a source, part# for a correct length cable.

1968 Camaro Z/28 survivor. No past modifications, no cruise control. Thanx... Danny

General Discussion / 4 Leaf Springs worth
« on: December 04, 2022, 07:15:09 PM »
I need a set of 4 leaf springs for a '68 Z/28 project. Trying to complete a car to sale. I found a set for sale. But have no idea what to pay. I have never seen a set for sale. Probably also because I never needed any until now.
They are in good condition. Will need a good cleaning and repaint. What should I pay? $500 for the set? Any help appreciated. .. Danny

My friend has a block with the following info. I don't have access to my files as I am 2,000 miles from home. Was told it was a 300HP 327 Chevelle motor. BUT.... Does it have a steel crank? That's what we need to find out before purchase. Any help appreciated... Danny

 Thank you for the info. I really thought it was rare. Everyone loves to use Rare and Scarce in their descriptions. But this really is... My friend has been collecting parts for many years. He has this so I wanted to help him get a value estimate.
 He had a '69 SS L/78 in his garage for 17 years. He drove it in and hasn't touched it since. He forgot that it had a bunch of parts stored in it. He found 4 or 5 '69 Rosewood wheels, '67-'68 NOS wheel well moldings with the 2 packs of original screws. Garage and attic buried full. He also has NOS quarters, fenders and 5 or 6 special ducted hoods all that he bought right from GM. He worked 30 days straight to the day trying to empty JUST the garage. Only has 1/4 of the garage touched. Gotta love it. Danny

Bummer, thought it would be worth more. I would think this would be way scarcer than a standard trans unit. My friend has only seen one in 40 years, and he bought it. This is the one.
A '69 small block Automatic SS NON pace car with special ducted hood? Never seen one. How many could there be? Danny

This is a very scarce flat bottom air cleaner assembly that is NOT reproduced as far as I know. Have not looked for a while. How often do you see a survivor cowl induction for an automatic only. Yes, that's right. This is not for a Z/28. Still has 350 sticker.  Since all '69 pace cars had cowl induction, this would be correct for an automatic car.
My question is what do we think the value would be in this unrestored condition? ... Danny

This POP is still attached to the original booklet. It has the original owner info tape. ... Danny

I too feel that is the answer. When the second owner purchased the car, they went to their local Chevrolet dealership to have the 5/50 "Application for Transfer of Warranty" sheet for the warranty balance transferred into their name. The new plate showed up in the mail with a small directions sheet. The sheet shows you how to cut part of the back cover away and install the new plate. No longer any reason to have the original owner info on YOUR plate. I am in the process of selling some cars that have the plain plate. I purchased a '68 Z/28 not too long ago. It actually came with the ORIGINAL POP with the original owner info. It has the Dyna Tab tape. Which would mean the second owner did not transfer warranty in his name. Danny

I know it can get very difficult to identify some blocks. I am trying to figure this one out.

  Block Casting #3892657
  Block Date K116 - Jan 11th, 1966?
  Front Pad Stamp V1122KM Flint, November 22nd?
  Looks like it decodes out as 1 of 3 blocks.

  1967   3892657   302   290   290   2   Z-28, small journal
  1967   3892657   327   210   350   2   car & truck
  1967   3892657   350   295   295   2   Camaro

 Is it the Z/28 block because of the " V" for Flint High Performance Engine Building Plant? Or could it be the 295 HP 350? Danny

 I saw that hanging way down. Didn't know you could do that bad of a job. I have never done it, but it sure looked wrong to me.

109 Beautiful clear pictures from any distance. BUT WAIT... The front pad picture is SUPER blurry! And covered in 10 coats or more of paint. Funny watching these dealers sell a classic car. Seems like a pretty nice car. Already bid to 75K.  ... Danny
