361  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Which water pump needed for '68 Z28 on: June 04, 2014, 07:40:04 PM
This is a VO523MO Engine with an aftermarket water pump. What pump should be on this engine, and what is the acceptable date spread. I see numbers in Jerry's Book. But I am a little sketchy on the inlets and out lets, 1/2" 3/4", Bushing, No bushing, to late for 326?... Anybody got a picture of what it SHOULD look like... Danny

Got one that says "GM Overseas Distribution" Possibly the Netherlands. Bummer... Ya think this might have been a serviceman working overseas and ordered it up? The original Delivery Dealer = Dealer Code 1 Zone 21 . Anybody know what or where that is?...Danny

Lots of people going thru some poop for sure. I wish you all the best! Email me if ya like. I will have Kurt remove the entire posting when this is all over to save space. Thanx again to you all..

 Things seemed to be moving along well. I went to UCSF on the 20th and took 10 pills as prep for tests the following day. Needed to have a low TSH level after my 14 day low iodine diet. In those 14 days I didn’t wanna cheat so I only had 2 cornuts and 1 pistachio the whole time. No other salts. No other dairy, salts, fish, bread basically anything in life that tastes good. Lots of baked chicken and lettuce wraps with avocado and tomatoes. And a few other things if you get creative. You can have meat with very little on it. No processed food, salt free ketchup and so on. So the lower your TSH count is, the higher the number. 30 and they won’t treat you, as you have obviously been cheating. 40 and they will treat you IF they can get permission from your endocrinologist. Sometimes they do, sometimes you have to start all over. 50 is ideal and that’s where you need to be to walk right in the next room and get treatment. I was 53.6, so I was good. They WANT you to go into Hypothyroidism so your body craves iodine BAD. Then drop the pills and they go right at the Cancer and kill it, attacking bad cells only. RAI treatment has been around for 50 years! So on the 21st, I went back to UCSF and had some blood work done and hemoglobin testes and the like. Then a CT scan where I could not move for 25 minutes while they took pictures of my whole body. WBS = whole body scan. RAI = Radio Active Iodine. Only can blink your eyes. Then went into the next room and had an hour long meeting about the difference between exposure and contamination. And blah blah blah… Then took 2 heavy doses of Radio-Active Iodine Treatment. Then run down the steps and out the door. Then left there fast and straight home to isolation at a friends for 7 days. No riding on buses, sharing a cab, holding babies or animals or being around a pregnant woman as it could kill the baby.
  Went down for another scan yesterday to see progress. My endocrinologist called me today with good and bad news. Good news = there is no Cancer anywhere else in my body. As there was a time where it was in a couple other places. Bad news = Cancer is still very present in my neck and throat area. Meaning the treatment did not get all the Cancer. I asked her if the medicine will continue working and she said not likely, as it is at its strongest at 48 hours. Then down from 100% to like 6 %. Then hangs around for a little longer and that is it. 8 days later and I am out of isolation and no longer a threat to anyone. Which means it’s probably done working. It MAY still have a little left to help eat away some of the residual Cancer, but not likely. Surprising as they gave me a VERY heavy dose. Had to put it in 2 pills. 15 thousand dollars a pill that the insurance does NOT pay for. Good times eh… So back to regular life for now, whatever THAT is.. and trying not to stress out. Not easy to do for sure. I was really hoping she would say we had a zero tumor count. I guess they are not really tumors, that’s just what they call it as a whole. So I asked her to give it to me straight and she said and I quote,” It doesn’t look good, and I am very concerned. I thought it would be Zero, or at least a lot less”   End quote…
 So no way to start more treatment right now, as the body needs to recoup. Then back to UCSF on August 18th to see where things stand and another WBS. THAT scan will tell her whether or not I start another RAI treatment in 6 to 9 months. Basically start all over again. ( Or pinpoint Radiation in Petaluma, CA. I guess they go in you and plant little chunks of Gold inside ya. Then zap THAT area and the gold keeps treatment close to the Cancer. ) If the masses that are left are too big, they do NOT do another RAI as it will do no good, and it’s straight to pinpoint radiation. I was told to NOT get my affairs in order just yet. I guess at least THAT'S good news.
 That’s it I guess. That’s the short version. Next update after August 18th? Danny

Well tomorrow is the beginning of treatment. I will be dropping some test pills for scans and TSH and Hemoglobin levels. Then Wed. at 11am is more scans and testing levels to see if my body is Hypothyroid enough and ready. Then "Radioactive Iodine" Pill drop that same day at 3pm. Good times... NOT!!  Been on a no Iodine diet now for 16 days! Got about 10 more days to go on that diet. Killing me, I want a piece of cheese, bread, dairy, salt, salmon, shrimp...ANYTHING. I will take just a tuna sandwich, or a tomato and mayonnaise sandwich. ONE piece of bread!  After taking pill, full isolation for 7 days from any living being. Then a whole body scan on the 28th or 29th to see if we got all the Cancer, especially behind my Clavicle. I just went back and read all your past emails and got my self feeling much better. What a great boost seeing all that, as I really needed it. I appreciate it. I will have access to a computer, but not my own. I live in a 5th wheel and it's not connected to the sewer so no can stay here. Going to be at the girlfriends house, and she will go to the neighbors for a week. Boy she has REALLY taken care of me with lunch and dinner everyday for those 16 days. Lots of salads and avocados, veggies and SOME fruit. She really read that American thyroid association treatment cook book and made it happen. Whipping up and modifying anything she can to try and get some flavor out of it. Hours and hours of shopping and prep work. Anyway, she has a laptop I can use to check messages.
 By the way, surprise... she seen me looking at cars online, asked me some questions and bought me a Camaro. Not kidding! When the title shows up I will share year, color, pictures and info. Car arrives in two or three weeks. But no info yet, ya gotta wait  Wink Wink Grin Grin

  OK... so, please do not reply here. Lets save valuable space on this site for Camaro etc. related discussion. Here is an email address assuming ya wanna shoot me something. Take care, wish me luck, luv you guys... Danny

I am VERY suspect. Seller got too excited if ya ask me. Pour some acid on that front pad and watch the numbers arise  Shocked... Danny
366  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Z stamp on: May 17, 2014, 11:11:22 AM
Here it is facing you and punched up a little in size. I think I see a 3 and a maybe 7 and possibly some other numbers in the smooth area of the pad. As it looks concaved to me. I would be SUPER suspicious about that no broached area. Just my 2 cents, I wouldn't buy it JUST cause of that. Factory regrind and stamp?? Danny
367  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 Camaro Z28 without a Tach?? on: May 15, 2014, 04:03:59 PM
Think I might have found my own answer. Did more searching here. But please anyone chime in anyway with some more details. Or how many documented no tach Z/28's are in the database?

       Gauges and spoilers were optional with the Z28 until April/May 69 when a tachometer became a required part of the package and spoilers became part of the package.   
368  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1968 Camaro Z28 without a Tach?? on: May 15, 2014, 03:54:26 PM
Is there a way to order a 68' Z/28 without a tachometer from the factory? ... Danny
369  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: seen this 68 Z on ebay if anyone is looking on: May 10, 2014, 10:52:51 AM
That seems like the top of the mark I guess. A little scared as the title is NOT in his name. Anybody know how the DMV transfer fees work if you bring a car in to your own state. I guess ya could just use the last guys title, but what about fee's? We have "non-op" here, but it's gotta be clear FIRST. And what if this car has hundreds or thousands in back fee's due in other states? Do they go away during transfer to another state? CA sucks as a State period, and has SO many rules and regulations to follow. I don't know, pretty scary.... Danny

I guess if I had to think about it I would choose one ALL finished and completely original. But I still like the thrill of these kinds of survivor cars. I am just not in great health right now, so couldn't take it on. Although my buddy wants to go in together and buy it. Ya never know. But yes, I know of probably 6 cars I would like to have right now. Here is a couple three below....Danny
371  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: seen this 68 Z on ebay if anyone is looking on: May 07, 2014, 06:09:56 PM
Take a look at the transmission stamps, what do ya all think?. I talked to him for an hour a couple days ago and showed him where to look and where to take the pictures. I was just getting ready to edit them when they showed up on the auction. Looks good? ... Danny

I wish somebody from CRG that lived close would go look at it. So we can get pictures of the Trans, Rear-End, and just the whole underside of the car. Plus more casting numbers throughout. The description is SO vague Angry
I would say if it was a Lemans Blue RS it would bring the bigger money. Don't get me wrong, I like the color. My first ever Camaro was BY with the RS package. Had the POP also, sold it for 5K... Rats.... I think since this has SO MUCH documentation, that if it all pans out... 30K ?   Danny
374  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: And so the hood closed on: May 04, 2014, 06:15:33 PM
Well all I can say is, it's his loss!! He is probably pissed because someone gave him the proper info in the past, OR on his present car now and he didn't like the outcome. I would have liked to have gotten the license number of that car just to have it. Then if I ever see it I can check it out and wonder what it was for fun.... Danny
