YEA!!! JUST scored a 3959 "326" Water Pump for the Z/28. Wow these babies are scarce and pricey for sure... Contacted Bill Mock and he got right back to me the next day. Bought a fully rebuilt ready to mount dated E 3 8 with the 1/2" FIP hole in the top. My engine assembly is 5 23 8. So 20 days prior. Now almost everything is matched from top to bottom except hoses, belts, battery and cables, tune-up items and tires.... Danny

69 Zee,
 Thanx man.. You can have it for 40K!!.... As you know it is SO much fun. I really like searching out numbers, as I am an original numbers matching guy. I am not a hot rod guy, or a rat rod guy. I appreciate the talent. But I don't want a John Deere Tractor part in my interior.
 Funny I just finished reading your score... Super cool... a little more work than mine, but you will love it. If you start to get stressed, walk away and come back another day. Good luck... Danny

I used a seamstress cloth tape and that seemed to work well. Lays nice and flat. I had the measurement at 25.25 with the cloth tape. I just wanted to make sure it was accurate. Apparently I was off. I here ya on the 36 degrees. That would be around 2 -1/2". So I will get that accurate and make a mark there also. Thanx everyone... Gonna do it tonight... Danny

Got it everyone thanx so far...So I hate to sound stupid AGAIN... But should I make it 1/4" .25 on the end of that measurement, instead of the .28 ?... Reason being there is SOME paint around the balancer. So it could add up to 3 or 4 thousandths, or 1/16 of an inch. Does that 8 inches we have always heard about get measured with the balancer bare, no paint?... . Danny

I have been searching for an hour for just the circumfernece! I tryed to do the math with the 8" but I couldn't remember how to do it. Dammit!!... Danny

HELP!!  Need the circumference of the Z28 302 Harmonic Balancer. I am trying to break it up in 1/4's so I can adjust the valves cold. How do I do this with pulleys, hoses, belts and all the sh*# in the way?? ...Danny

Here is the tag stretched out. Made of what looks to be thin clear plastic. Glad it wasn't paper, cause that would have been gone.  Danny

Jano,
 No I didn't know that. I remember some of that info from years past, but thanx much for reminder.
 
 90 degrees out here in Northern CA and too hot right now to fire it and heat it up for valve adjustment. So gonna wait for 74  degree day. Or there about...

 As for the 5054 tag, we have a winner!! Pictures below show the tag in place.

Hey Jon, thanx very much for that info. It's a lot to take in, especially for a backyard mechanic such as myself. Seen that rubber piece you were talking about, pretty cool. I never knew it was there until I heard it mentioned in one of the replies.

Going to adjust the Valves Sunday. Then pull the Distributor and send off for rebuild. Wish I could also send the Alternator, Master Cylinder, Calipers and a few other goodies.... But that takes $$$  Sad   Then will change the oil and the spark plugs again. When Dist. comes back I can drop it back in and start my trouble shooting issue back up.

 In the mean time, found this tag on the car. It was stuck on and seems original. Can you guess where on the car it was located???... Danny

Looks like you got yourself a 1st. week of October 1969 Z28 Carb. I think that is correct. Wait for the guys to chime in. I would get some pictures posted, as there are many parts that can be incorrect that cause the value to change. Like proper base plates etc.... Danny
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1111170 Dist. Stamp on: August 16, 2014, 10:58:13 AM
Here it is punched up. However I couldn't get it clear cause I didn't have the original to begin with. If you wanna send me the original, I can work on it, and repost tonight after the car show. Also when shooting reflective material... always shoot at an angle, usually like a 45 degree. That way the light exposure is consistent throughout. And there would be no big flash line thru the middle. Also you can shut your flash off. Then hold a flashlight at an angle until it lights the area nice, then shoot it. Take a look at some of my pictures in my posts, a lot of those are without flash... Danny

Tomrchaz. Welcome to the site... You will enjoy the time you spend here. And the knowledge gained will be plentiful.
  How about some nice clear close-up pictures of a rim showing letters and numbers inside the rim also... Danny
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Documentation List Question on: August 13, 2014, 01:05:30 AM
So... My car is 217 numbers from a VIN in the doc list. It is the closet I have seen so far. Am I to assume it was built the same day as my car? Since they built hundreds a day... Huh Huh
And if so, would I be able to get THAT said info?... Danny

  VIN in Doc List = 8N445670
  My VIN            = 8N445453
