46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69Z hard start, backfires on acceleration, stalls when breaking, related issues? on: December 23, 2013, 10:09:42 AM
well i had time to look at mine this weeked..  first off i only know a little about carbs,

 #1,  if you take one apart make sure your kids arnt around or it will never go back together!

 Anyway,   i had a freind help me and pretty much the carb needs help.    the choke is electric and has been bypassed.  then for the stumbling he adjusted a buch of stuff with no help.  next it was take apart and cleaned,  no help either.. 

He said from the looks of it,  i need a accelorator pump,  a cam something, and a few other things...    So i think im just going to buy a new carb that isnt a eletric choke and a vacuum secondary,

They are good heads for old stuff.   I had a set on my vette until about 6 months ago..  as 69Z28 said its more of a upper rpm head.. 

If your thinking about putting them up for sale to get newer aftermarket ones id just keep those if the car is matching number as you say..  last time i looked those heads where not bringing any real moeny..    Only reason i upgraded mine is nut went threw the motor and butsted a hole in the head..

Not camaro related,   but on my 67 corvette,  we tried everything to get it more stable / not as scary and wondering...    I finally gave up and put on a set of those cooker radials.   solved all my problems.  

I will admit that i miss it a little bit,  the scary as can be feeling..   But at the same time its so nice to put on the brakes and stop straight,  hammer the trottle and it goes straight for the most part,  be able to let go of the wheel on the road and it cross to the other side...    

I do still have two bia ply red lines,   If i had two more wheels i think i would swap them out  every now and then just to play..   when it was bia plys 1-3 was use less,   it was slow as crap but a BLAST,     rolling along some one tell you to get on it.  Floor it in 2nd or 3ed,  and it kills the tires..    

With the radials,  it doesnt even spinn in first now,   I mean it will, if you use the clutch,   but from a roll it just goes..

 this is a few weeks ago,   but it will give you idea of how nice radials are, 

55 mph,

Mine is doing the same thing,    However i just got the car so i dont know what has been done and what hasent.

When i go to start it in the AM,   It takes for every..  Plan to spend about 5 min just to get it to start.   Its like i have no fuel...    Dont touch the gas it just cranks and cranks,   but you can hold it wide open and it just cranks and cranks..   finally it will start sputtering and come to life..  even when it does start it keeps dying.

Once you make it out of the garage / drive way it  back fires, stumbles a lot...    once the motor is all the way warm it does some what better but its way off.   

Ive ordered a rebuild kit for the carb... i hope to do that saturday.
50  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / 6 speed swap, tremec TR6060 on: December 19, 2013, 03:33:21 PM
I was wondering if any of you have done a modern trans swap on a camaro..

We are in the process of swapping a LSA (cts-v motor) and TR6060 into a nova II for a friend, its a complete pull out with ecu and gas pedal,  anyway i was looking up the ratios of these trans and on tremec web page they have a few sets listed..  one of them is very close to the M22 close ratio trans, but of course you get the two over drive gears.

This got me thinking i would love to have that in the camaro,  then i can regear the rear end and still be highway friendly.  In my vette i have the close ratio with 4:56 gears and love it,  Unless i need to go on the free way lol..   

Tremec show one of the options as "C"    1st,   2.29  2nd, 1.61, 3ed 1.21,  4th 1.00 5th, .078 6th, .067,

The M22 close ratio like i have in the vette,  1st, 2.20  2nd 1.64  3ed 1.28   4th 1.00

Im assuming ill need a cross memeber,  ( mainly becuse the nova will need one)  then maybe a hydrolic conversion,  a clutch pedal assembly and of course a clutch and shifter...

Id have to look on the tire size to be sure,  i know they have been switched out and the rear are wide,  i get some rubbing sound ever now and then..  im not sure what the height is,  when i popped the beauty rings off to wet sand i noticed its a 15' wheel,  i think the  tire said 265,  but i didnt pay a lot of attention.   My daughter was night to point that it has different tires,  " hey dad,  why those tires have different names?  long puse,  i guess the tire store guy cant read"

I know its not to in the 4:56 range,   the vette had 7.70 X15 and i went to a radial from cooker in a 205-75.   in 4th it turns abour 42-4300 at 65 with the 4 speed..   so in the camaro thats probably a 3:73 as you said

52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: How do I get a 67 Camaro to wheelstand (serious question) on: December 19, 2013, 09:37:58 AM
Sad

All i see is red X!


Its power, and traction,  and to be honest a bad set up on the rear end or way to much power lol...

ive got friends with stuff that will do wheelies,  and while its cool,  unless you build the rest of the parts to take the hit and bounce it can get expenisve in a hurry..

Brad has a 87 GMC truck,  406 on alcohol,  104mm turbo,  9 inch ford, 4 linked and huge tires..   truck does a small hop when it leave the line on 4 psi,   well this summer he bumped the boost controller on accident,  it turned off..  truck left the line and the little hop on the launch turned into a hop,  then it rolled out about 30 feet and stood up in the air dragging the shoot.  lol..   

Drews buick its is close to the same on suspenion,  but runs a 275 drag radial,  it doesnt pull both front tires, it just does a one wheel wheelie,  looks like the car is twisting its self in half...  just picture black buick that looks like a tractor pull on tv..



As the all said it can be done,   weight transfer, suspension, and power.. well traction! 
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: New 69 Z28 302 rebuild, dizzy has rev limiter. What is the best RPM limitation? on: December 19, 2013, 09:13:44 AM
well said 69Z,

on the that 327 ive got its been hurt a few time lol...  the last time they said i could twist it more but if something happens they cant fix it again..  so its at 7800..  still sounds awesome threw side pipes,  well to me the neighborhood isnt impressed. 
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 19, 2013, 09:09:21 AM
well i looked again last night,   i guess im missing a number on the rear axle.   It looks like BP 04256.     which by that chart on here is a 10 bolt, with high gear ratio,  so some has swapped out the gear at some point.  it turns 3500 rpms at 70 mph. 

as for the engine pad,  it's either an aftermarket block ?  or there is so much paint build up on it that i cant see or feel any numbers.   i guess at some point ill take the alt off and get a razer blade or something to scrap the paint off.. 



55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Side Exhaust on my 69 on: December 18, 2013, 10:00:42 AM
just guessing here but i would think you need long tube headers, then at least 4 90* bends.


So headers down,  then maybe extension to get under firewall,   two 90* bends ( one right one left ) maybe some short tubing to run to the outside of car,  another 90* bend to run into the side pipes..   

there are a lot of on line store that sale the chambered sticks for vette's  shouldnt be hard to do,

My next mod is the chambered exhaust under the car and out the back,  but i need to try to fit 3"   
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: New 69 Z28 302 rebuild, dizzy has rev limiter. What is the best RPM limitation? on: December 18, 2013, 09:55:28 AM
maybe i miss read but what parts do you have?

Its takes more than just a set rpm i want to turn it,   You can revve anything as far as you want ONCE! 

My 327 has MSD box set 7800,   but to get the motor live at that many rpms you need good parts,  and to get it to keep making power you need to have heads, cam and intake that will work in that power range.   Like i said you might have typed out all of that and i missed.. 
 I  just dont want you to go  " oh the guys on line said i can spinn them 7200 and then end up with a hand full of parts"
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 18, 2013, 09:45:49 AM
ill look again,   but those are the only numbers i saw on the rear end..     I cant see any numbers on the pad, its got ac line, alt etc in front of it.  maybe this weekend ill have time to dig into it

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 17, 2013, 06:09:33 PM
Ok the rear end says
Gm 70
3894859 nf


I see two holes on the outside of the frame but nothing on the inside

I also only see one fuel line out of the tank. 
As for motor numbers I can't see anything with this brake booster and crap in the way lol
