1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / your going the wrong way! 3.31 gears in a 302 powered 69? on: March 26, 2015, 02:59:24 PM
I know, I know  Embarrassed  currently has 4.10s in it now and its fine around town but get it up on hwy @4000 rpm and I'm still being run over so I'm going to 3.31s it has a M20 so its worse than 4.10x2.52 that I started with first gear ratio was 9.02 and now will be 8.34:1 (a little better than a 3.73 with a M21 @8.21) will this thing be a pig in the city now? or ? will it be tollerable?  future plans is to sideline the 302 for a 383 and that should be fine with 3.31
thoughts guys?

I had to use a clip like this as my e-clip came off (at the wrong time  Sad ) due to lever being worn

I wonder why Fonts are different AAC  and AAc ?
one would think would be similar

The PVC with the markings that go completely around the body  "AC SPARK PLUG TYPE CV-746 C"  which I believe was the original markings but who knows if it's the original or a replacement at some time.  I also read the Z's PVC had a PURPLE hue to them.  Not sure if that's true or not.  
any pics of PCV with hose removed? supposedly should be the Spun one looks like from bottom pic and thanks for all the detailed photos! good stuff and nice score
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 18, 2014, 11:03:14 AM
I dont know which is correct but from what I know there is a weird bushing that goes through the bracket for the air pump-so the pulley lines up- maybe one is stamped different and doesent use the bushing? I also would like to see pics of correct one
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 carb fuel line bracket. on: September 18, 2014, 07:55:55 AM
any thoughts of what the bracket was plated or painted? mine had remnants of black paint like a dipped part. after looking at Garys and I found this pic of a 21,000 mile car thats on the board

Very hard to change a ONE into a ZERO.
easiest number to hide of any of them 1111481 is a common number too
look at the 1's theres no top or bottom to it a 0 covers most/all of it I actually blew that pic above WAY way up and something isnt right
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1111480 Distributor Stamp on: July 21, 2014, 10:51:33 AM
I had looked at that one before- I was thinking it possibly was a 1111481 that was changed?
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 837 alternator fan on: June 03, 2014, 07:21:20 AM

I just ordered a few of them from Bair's - $2.75 each and shipping is realistic! sue beats NOS pricing

thanks guys, Im a little leary , I'm not buying that its and original 69 alternator
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: stamping real or? on: May 06, 2014, 07:17:47 AM
wrong rear housing? no boss for bracket?

Good eyes ! If it is indeed a complete front and back half, original, it would have the boss and a tapped hole for the support bracket -

Change any opinions ? My opinion is now worse than the perfect stamping caused.



anyone have a picture of original boss? if anyone has thoughts they dont want to post please PM me

From the recent photos of your car you posted John, you've never drilled out the braze and reinstalled them??

Nope. I have the parts, but haven't felt like re-drilling the holes through the braze.
If you dont go by a template I bought some badly pitted original lovers and cut the studs off and drilled them put them against the quarter to where they fit tne marked and drilled the holes - fits much better
