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
21  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
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: October 12, 2014, 08:52:39 PM
George, you got time to post some pictures of that? D
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: October 12, 2014, 07:02:08 PM
Charlie made it by. We checked many things. It turned out to be the distributor. He dropped in an untouched unit out of one of his Z/28's and it fired right up and ran good.  With his carb on it never ran this good. We also left one of his coils installed for now. However my carb is still screwed. It ran real good an no more backfiring with the new dist. installed. But when we put my carb back on it still runs real rich. He took his carb back, but left the dist. and coil in for me. I am kinda right back where I started. ALL that time and money spent searching and it turns out it was the newly rebuilt dist. AND the carb of course. One of the ONLY good things is I got to meet Charlie, AND find that timing gear plastic tooth missing mess. So that bad dist. made me look around a bit. But I sure wasted a lot of time and money. I learned some things for sure. Now I gotta decide what to do. And where to send things, or hand deliver them.

 Can anyone tell me if the dist. drive gear has to be installed a certain way? Can you just put it back any ole' way and press in the roller pin and run it?

Well he is real. His camera broke so he went and stole pictures of parts to represent what he has. He has a lot of stuff. A lot of Corvette stuff. But his big thing is Harley stuff, shifters, transmissions, wheels and what you see in the pictures of the ad. So come to find out, the shifter in the picture of course is NOT what he has correctly stated. His shifter has NO linkage and NO shift ball, and an after market big block mounting plate. So I told him we are already going in reverse. He mentioned that everything he has is nice, even nicer than the pictures he stole. So he does live near me, so I guess if you wanna email him a want list for Corvette, Camaro, Harley etc. ya never know. Go for it, and I'll go look at the item for ya before he ships it out to ya. Or I will ship it.... Danny

 PS Kurt. he said he has 5 Muncie's. And they are all apart, and there is enough parts to make two. This guy is too funny... I might try to get ya the case VIN's, but don't count on it...
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anybody need these parts? on: October 05, 2014, 07:38:02 PM
I started to wonder that myself. As EVERY picture taking area has a different surface. Wood, then cardboard, then this color cloth etc. etc. We will see, I just emailed him and told him I wanna come by for a look... D

Here is a link to some parts in my town. If you need me to go get something and send it out to ya LMK... Danny

Well Charlie, glad ya had some fun out there. I would go but this is a 'On with my Dad" weekend. And I have too much personal stuff I gotta get going on. And not real thrilled about 95 to 100 degree heat. It hit 100 even today at the stroke of 1600 hours. Thanx for looking, and I appreciate the effort on the harness. Talk to ya Wed. mid afternoon for the big swapping's.... Danny

His carb works superb, so we will see. I for some reason think it's the distributor or an intermittent coil. But again, what do I know... D
