361  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Harmonic Balancer for 302, need the circumference? on: August 18, 2014, 09:56:31 PM
Got it everyone thanx so far...So I hate to sound stupid AGAIN... But should I make it 1/4" .25 on the end of that measurement, instead of the .28 ?... Reason being there is SOME paint around the balancer. So it could add up to 3 or 4 thousandths, or 1/16 of an inch. Does that 8 inches we have always heard about get measured with the balancer bare, no paint?... . Danny

HELP!!  Need the circumference of the Z28 302 Harmonic Balancer. I am trying to break it up in 1/4's so I can adjust the valves cold. How do I do this with pulleys, hoses, belts and all the sh*# in the way?? ...Danny

Here is the tag stretched out. Made of what looks to be thin clear plastic. Glad it wasn't paper, cause that would have been gone.  Danny

Jano,
 No I didn't know that. I remember some of that info from years past, but thanx much for reminder.
 
 90 degrees out here in Northern CA and too hot right now to fire it and heat it up for valve adjustment. So gonna wait for 74  degree day. Or there about...

 As for the 5054 tag, we have a winner!! Pictures below show the tag in place.

Hey Jon, thanx very much for that info. It's a lot to take in, especially for a backyard mechanic such as myself. Seen that rubber piece you were talking about, pretty cool. I never knew it was there until I heard it mentioned in one of the replies.

Going to adjust the Valves Sunday. Then pull the Distributor and send off for rebuild. Wish I could also send the Alternator, Master Cylinder, Calipers and a few other goodies.... But that takes $$$  Sad   Then will change the oil and the spark plugs again. When Dist. comes back I can drop it back in and start my trouble shooting issue back up.

 In the mean time, found this tag on the car. It was stuck on and seems original. Can you guess where on the car it was located???... Danny

Looks like you got yourself a 1st. week of October 1969 Z28 Carb. I think that is correct. Wait for the guys to chime in. I would get some pictures posted, as there are many parts that can be incorrect that cause the value to change. Like proper base plates etc.... Danny
369  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1111170 Dist. Stamp on: August 16, 2014, 10:58:13 AM
Here it is punched up. However I couldn't get it clear cause I didn't have the original to begin with. If you wanna send me the original, I can work on it, and repost tonight after the car show. Also when shooting reflective material... always shoot at an angle, usually like a 45 degree. That way the light exposure is consistent throughout. And there would be no big flash line thru the middle. Also you can shut your flash off. Then hold a flashlight at an angle until it lights the area nice, then shoot it. Take a look at some of my pictures in my posts, a lot of those are without flash... Danny

Tomrchaz. Welcome to the site... You will enjoy the time you spend here. And the knowledge gained will be plentiful.
  How about some nice clear close-up pictures of a rim showing letters and numbers inside the rim also... Danny
371  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Documentation List Question on: August 13, 2014, 01:05:30 AM
So... My car is 217 numbers from a VIN in the doc list. It is the closet I have seen so far. Am I to assume it was built the same day as my car? Since they built hundreds a day... Huh Huh
And if so, would I be able to get THAT said info?... Danny

  VIN in Doc List = 8N445670
  My VIN            = 8N445453

Ok, let me try to answer some questions

 I sprayed carb cleaner around the base of the intake. I really couldn't tell if there was a rise in the idle. I remember doing that years ago and having the idle increase. Didn't happen, if it did it was so subtle. Will try water...

 I already had tightened the intake bolts a few days ago. The middle 4 were some what loose. And turned 3/4 of a turn easily. Rest were tight and didn't budge.

 I have that miti-vac hand pump. I used it to help bleed the brakes. I will try the distributor advance. But I think patience is more in order and I am going to send it to JM. I just found out that the 532 point plate is NOT in the dist. I thought I was told it was, my fault. So def. need to have it put back stock. Anybody have an extra point plate before I send it away??

 Motor never apart as far as I can tell. Should still have the 30/30 Duntov. So no crazy grind.

 I have not pulled the plugs in a while. I am going to install another set in the coming days.

 Compression was a LITTLE all over the map from 155 to 180. Only ONE cylinder had 180, rest were 172 etc. etc.

 Will do the clean rag over carb trick again. Last time I did it when all this first started, as I mentioned in a previous post, it died with-in a half to one second! Just RIGHT NOW died. Witch led me to believe there was no Vac leak.

 Didn't know about the smog pump pulley thing. I sure can't spend $400 on a pulley. I would bet my left testy that this is the one that was on the car when it left the factory. 56 thousand original miles, who would pull it and change it, and why?

Gary - Here is the pictures showing location of front head stamps. I shot the pic's starting from a ways back and then closer.

 Also the left shock tower cap still in place. Checked the tapper etc. against Chick's close-up posted picture of his original and an aftermarket. Look like mine is original.

Right side front - head stamp

left head front stamp, maybe a "C", or an incomplete zero? ... Danny
