It's a very nice looking hot rod. Smiley

Tag seems to indicate Lemans Blue car with white standard interior. We would need to see the tag to say any more about it.

A pump overhaul is fairly easy. The pulley may require a special tool but they are available to borrow for free. A little heat can get it off if you are carefull. You may be leaking between the pump and the resevoir. Buy the inexpensive overhaul kit and have a go at it.

Start by checking for flow. Feel the lower hose to see if it is hot. If not, you do not have flow. Clogged radiator can do that but this is not as common as a stuck thermostat. I have seen one water pump im my life that lost it's impeller, but that is very rare.

You can test your thermostat (new or old) in a pot of hot water on the stove. If it opens at 180, or what ever the temp rating on the stat (before boiling at 212) you are good to go.

I thought Bob had Detroit Eaton make him a run of those correct springs. Is that right?

FYI - My first set of Detroit Eaton springs did ride a little high. I called them about it and gave them exact measurements to adjust the height and they sent out (4) new custom springs that were DEAD NUTS exactly the right ride height as I requested. They paid the freight to return the first set and sent UPS truck when I told them I was ready. No extra charge. These replacement springs are not 100% technicaly correct but they fit and get the job done. There are some slight visual detail differences from original but unless you have a 100 point car, those regular springs are fine.

Be prepared to massage the tube closest to the steering box. I marked mine with a sharpie and modified it with a spark plug socket and a hammer.  Wink  No biggie.

I went back to the stock manifolds and chambered exhaust after that and those fit just fine.  Grin

The "621" was used on a few 350's and many big block muscle cars. They are more rare and desireable so they go for more $$$. The "403" was used on MANY applications and should sell for consideably less $$$.

I may be a bit out of touch but I would try to pay $50 for a "403" and about $150 for a "621" if I purchased them locally. Ebay will probably go for more.

The "621" bellhousing, 11"clutch, and 14" flywheel setup you have is not correct for a Z/28.

The "403" bellhousing, 12.75" flywheel and 10.5" clutch setup is correct. You can use the "621" but the starter nose cone, flywheel and clutch will ALL be different.

Try a BB nose cone if you dont want to go find the correct "403" setup. You can not mix-and-match these setups - ALL of the parts listed will need to match one setup or the other setup. Been there, done that.  Even the starter brace would be different. None of the parts you have will be technicaly correct except for the non-fitting starter. Sad

If it was mine, I  would sell the "621" for good money and find the cheaper and more plentiful "403" bellhousing, flywheel, clutch and use the starter you have so you don't have a "MUTT" car later on down the road. Smiley

Check out the HELP section at your auto parts store for a close functional replacement knob. There is a decent replacement knob out there. Some of the resto parts houses have it but I have not used it before.

How about this?

http://www.rickscamaros.com/product.asp?pf%5Fid=D%2D300&dept%5Fid=3316

It is just a decal but it will work in a pinch.  You can buy a used piece of glass but shipping will be challenging.

A SHP 327 dressed up like a 302 would yield simmilar (better) performance with cheaper parts that are easier to find. Most people would never know the difference. Same sounds with slighlty more torque would keep the nostalgia feel to it.

I would want to keep some of the 302 "experience" that comes with owning the car. Smiley

Eaton Detroit was a good supplier. Have you tried them?

373  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z Voltage Regulator on: October 09, 2009, 08:08:58 AM
That makes sense. I have an October 68 build. My original rad support is long gone and I don't recall if the repro used the well nuts or not. Smiley

Why do I have it in my mind that there might be some rubber expansion mounts behind the regulator, like they use on one side of a radiator?Huh Am I just loosin it?

The M20 and M21 refer to the internal gear ratios, more specificaly the ratio spread. The M20 is a wide ratio and the M21 is the narrow ratio. Both transmissions have the same 1:1 4th gear but the M21 has the ratios set up so the RPMs do not drop as much when you shift gears as compared to the wide ratio M20. If you have a torquey engine with power over a wide range the M20 is preferred. If you have a more high strung, high RPM powered car, the M21 was preferred. Speaking in general. Smiley
