What I don't understand is if these cars are #1 cars, why can't you take a picture of a number DURING the resto. While the car is APART. Why jam the camera up and around all the crap for semi blurry less than adequate faint pictures. If you want 150K, you better make sure you make it happen. And loads of repro parts. Giant black stamps on the gas tank looks like hell. At least take some lacquer thinner and lose that printing. And how is it possible to have incorrect info on the story board. YOU OWN THE CAR! I don't get it. It's beautiful, but I would rather have an all original car. There is many cars nearly as nice for 30 to 50K cheaper or more. To me it's about a quick 20K drop for the wrong trans. Then another 10 to 15K drop for time searching out and replacing all non original parts. Anything is worth what somebody wants to pay. I would pay WAY less than advertised price. Just my 50 cents FWIW... Danny

Some fun Interesting dates... I don't think anybody moved to Cali. I think it was either overseas, or ordered overseas by a serviceman and stayed here?. Then traded in after about 18K miles. Then the second owner seen the ad in the paper and bought it.
 NCRS says Original Production Date = 6/4/68   ... Danny

 Paul,
They are original CA plates, but if you notice, it is 1969. I don't think these are the original plates. I think when Richard Ward Anderson, the second owner purchased the car around March of '69, he got new plates with it. As they start with a "Y" ... And actually I am completely full for one page. I worked on it for hours, and you can't even add a period  Grin   .. With the pictures and emblems there is no more room...
 
 TODD,
  I have never pulled one apart, but I am sure there isn't much to it. Remember it was advance starts at 11-1200 and all in by 2800-3000. Has 18 mechanical and 10 vacuum. You would think they would have found an issue when it was in the distributor machine. It had a lot of play, so I see little brass spacers/washers in it. I don't know, maybe I will watch a couple videos on how to do it. I do have an extra 532 point plate assembly with the shaft and all. But I think you are right, it has to be something shorting out. The problem is these companies take on too much work, and blow thru stuff to fast. I have had maybe 2 or 3 call backs in 25 years! Ya have to be able to turn work down sometimes, so you can put out consistent quality work. I have passed all State and Federal Inspections. I have worked on 10 million dollar homes with live baby Dolphins in the swimming pool! Never had a problem. Simple distributor that they have done 1000 times, and it's not correct. I need somebody with a good updated machine that rolls up to 6K and has a recent calc inspection for accuracy.
I am more concerned about the carb right now. But while it's down I'll check it out and see what I find. I'll post pictures as I go. 
 
 I also need someone that can rebuild my original Master, and both front 4 piston calipers in BRASS. Power Brake Exchange is about an hour and 30 minutes from me, but only uses stainless. I guess that's the more of a show car thing. It's all about what happens with the carb thing. I can't afford to have all this done right now. As long as Charlie lets me keep the Dist. for a couple months, maybe I can get some Winter CA drives in on nice days... Danny

 While the car is not mobile, I thought I would work on a story board. Kurt has helped me some grammatically and with a couple codes. Also shortened some things up as it was too "Wordy".. I thought I would run it by everyone before I make it happen and print it out. Any suggestions?... Danny

Thanx, good to know. I do like the idea of the carb test run on an engine before shipping back. Maybe Eric does the same thing? I will touch base with him when I get a pocket full of cash. Danny
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: October 14, 2014, 09:44:57 PM
Thanx, I am thinking two ways on that. Do I want a big time company to pump it out? Do they do hundreds of different carbs and have updated equipment.? Do they know all the in's and out's of performance carbs? Or do I want a small shop in Lost Springs, Wyoming that does 3 or 4 different performance 60's carbs ONLY with an old timer teaching his kid the ropes, but has older equipment and is a bit out of touch? Don't wanna over analyze it, but I have spent over $1,200 on carbs, and STILL not driving my new car...  Sad Sad  Danny

I talked to the guy at Specialty Parts Direct and explained the sitch. There is a company that makes these for them, apparently not Holley. He has a guy that checks them over and then he will get back to me. So I sent it out yesterday. Gonna take 5 days to get there, and probably a few more days for diagnosing and resolution. In the mean time, I will decide where to send my original carb for total internal rebuild.
 Charlie is going to let me keep his dist. in for a while, and mentioned he won't have the car on the road for 2 or 3 months. However, I don't wanna hold him up in the future. So I will get that dist. hopefully fixed by then. It's all about the carb{s} right now. AND CASH FLOW to make it all happen. Danny

Well I just looked at it and it looks like it lines right up. Was hoping that was the problem.  Sad   I wonder what else it could be. Danny
