Charlie, you are awesome! I just worked 11.5 hours out in Valley Ford and stopped at my girlfriends to get a water on the way home. Thought I would check in on my guys at CRG, and low and behold there is help on the way. I read your post and my nose started to burn a little and my eyes started to well up a little. Anticipation of us doing this carb swap/check has got me excited to say the least. This really is a hell of a group of guys. You guys checked on me with concern when I was going through treatment more than my 30 and 40 year friends!! Anyway, thanx everyone... And sorry if I have made any of you frustrated with my lack of knowledge. I can tell ya this, I am getting pretty darn good at it. I had no help at all, and was kinda proud of myself doing that intake R&R.

 Charlie, I will send ya a message with my contact info. .... Danny

I thought about that. I don't have anybody. My buddy with the 69 Z/28, his carb has been sitting for 6 years! I don't wanna get into that. You got one to send me that you know is ok? Anybody have one they can send me for a try? Then at least I know where I am at. It would only take a few days turn around. Then if it works I am all set, and I will shoot it right back. It really is the easiest thing to try next. I pay S/H/I both ways of course, and insure it for $2,500. And any rental fee's...I can't put ALOT more time in this, but a carb would literally be just a few minutes.... Danny

Got it all ready. Unplugged the coil wire for 3 - 30 second crank overs. Plugged the wire in and fired it up. NO CHANGE... RUNS EXACTLY LIKE CRAP LIKE IT DID BEFORE I STARTED??  Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

 I set the timing with vac. advance hose pulled and plugged, set dwell, timed it, and set the idle at 850 to 950. Tried adjusting the fuel/air mixture and it was better it seemed, but not right and still raced up the idle with screws all the way in. Tried giving it some gas and it goes up to around 2500 and starts shaking violently just like before. I don't know what the hell. I can't spend anymore time on it. Gotta walk away. WAY TOO many personal and work projects have been neglected for this car. Oh well guys, no ride for me. I tried... D

Reassembly Prep... Got every surface wiped down one more time with Lacquer thinner. Applied small beads of Permatex around water holes, set gaskets, applied a bead around water jackets on top of gaskets. Ran 3/8ths high bead at the front and back. And a small mound at all 4 corners. Applied some to each bolt threads and installed. Started by running all of them in until they touches. Then pulled my alignment pins. Word of advice, do not make them out of stainless. Would have been nice to get them with the telescopic magnet. Wrong stainless, non magnetic. Started in the center and worked my way out at 15 #'s, then 20, then 25. Bouncing back and forth, middle to back, then middle to front. Until all were at about 27 #'s.... Danny

Well got it all apart. Pulled the pan under intake. Tapped a wide screwdriver in on each corner and just turned it sideways and they popped up. Pan was pretty clean, and so was the underside of intake. Took pictures and reinstalled pa. Cleaned holes with carb cleaner, blew them with air. Filled holes with Permatex Ultra Black. Then put a small amount under each head and knocked them in gently until they bottomed out. I feel confident they are in for good. Found some numbers...

 4. 18. 68 = April 18th 1968. Which should be ok for this car as EVERYTHING is May.

 4 583 Don't know what that is, Part Number?

 Then also a row of numbers and some proof marks? 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 45 / 50 / 60 / 70

Yes I agree, should be about $3,500 tops. BARE block, not even a beat up crank. And it's NOT standard bore!... Dannny

Hey Guys, if you ever see anything on any of these ads with-in 100 miles or so of CA Zip Code 95476... LMK and I can go look for you, and or buy for you. I just went and looked at a '69 Z28 in Half Moon Bay for a guy. Nice all original in need of resto, 30K. Wish I had the money, it sold. But anyway, I will make a run for ya. The semi Famous JL8 guy that got written up in Muscle Car review a few months back is 45 minutes from me, and so on... Just remember, for reference I am 42 miles north of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge... Danny
