I thought I could punch it up some, but would need the original.... Looks good, better to have a shot a little ways back to see factory broaching etc. THEN a super close up.. Anyway, for what it's worth.. Danny

Holly crap I screwed up big time. I was thinking of my mustangs, as I had 5 at once, all 65'-66' fastbacks...Then switched to Camaros a few years ago. Have not had a Chevy for many years... Anyway I used the LEFT front for no. ONE. NOW it's ALL pulled apart and I don't know what the hell to do! Can't believe I did that. I don't know which way is up. JUST when I was getting a handle of all the info previous, I go and do this... I don't know which way to rotate clock or counter, Do I now have my girl stick her finger in the REAL No. one, for comp. stroke... but then what? Do I Put the cover back on with 3 or 4 bolts.... then delicately slide the balancer on part way. Or stick the chain and beat-up gear back on and try to find TDC. Or turn the Cam by hand? Or wait to buy the new set-up and use it?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh   S*^t !!!.... Danny

JohnZ Thanx... I think I get it. I will print this out and keep it near by. What is that Balancer dimple?... Danny
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: August 31, 2014, 07:11:55 PM
What is this dimple in balancer? Is this the 36 or 38 degrees mark for timing?

also on balancer inside one of the spokes looks like F-1   G 2. What are those marks?
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: August 31, 2014, 07:09:02 PM
Date on Balancer B8  and date on Cover 4 68... So pretty cool. This sucker sure is numbers matching top to bottom.

 Jano, always appreciate the advice from everyone here. Sounds good, I will pick up a Cloyes set-up from Summit or the like. I have a good working knowledge but by no means a Car Mechanic kinda knowledge. If you were talking mechanical in the trades, THEN we can talk about dimensional changes in materials with different expansion coefficients and expansion ratings caused by temperature changes at a constant pressure. Thermal baby! LOL Grin Grin  I crack myself up...

 Maroman, you DID NOT lead me anywhere negative. It ended up being some sort of adhesive buildup cocked at an angle. Which gave the illusion that the markings might not be lining up. But I am happy to say the crank looks great, as does the balancer. No burrs to be found upon close inspection.

 Will get the timing chain set-up, make sure everything lines up, adjust the valves and start reassembly. Have a lot of notes on what to do as I go.

Have had the plugs out now for a few days. Does turn over nicely.

 Here is balancer, timing cover all cleaned up and date photographed on each. Also the cam gear only had "3" full teeth! The rest were worn down or near gone. Good thing you all said to pull it apart. First up close up of teeth...Danny

Ok guys thanx... I had heard years ago that ALL GM 302's had plastic cam gears.. I guess I just helped confirm... Here we go with the damn TDC thing again. If the lines line up right now, can't I just buy the new set-up and slide it on and make it up where it is? I think I put it at "0" on the timing cover perfectly before I took it off. By the way, Zero is TDC right? Sure would like to have a set-up that members have used and know is nice and strong, and a clean fit set.. I have never bought one... Danny
