this would be another good example of why the enthusiasts need somone to document a low mile original - like charley did with the 70 model Z- I think that was a great service to the hobby anyone have a <10k original mi car laying around?  the black million dollar camaro comes to mind to me

On a Chevy axle there is no snap ring retainer, the bearings go in the end of the axle tube with a press interference fit they are followed by the seal also a interference fit

68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Z28 fuel line support bracket -JohnZ? on: March 28, 2013, 10:28:50 AM
I was looking at a metal bracket that mounts to the carb mount stud and bolts around the fuel line - I have seen repops and OEM on ebay and i saw JohnZ's engine picture and his car does not have this - was this standard and discarded by most? I have searched and cant find much on this detail
here is the pics of Johns engine


and this is the bracket of which I speak

69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 L48 - 2 or 4 bolt mains on: March 12, 2013, 03:59:08 PM
NOT L48-  I was under the impression that all 4 barrels were 4 bolt in 1969 but I have a 250hp out of a chevelle wagon and it was a 2 bolt the difference was 441 heads- low compression and single exhaust Vs. L48
70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Original Muncie bolts - head markings info on: March 11, 2013, 09:33:17 PM
unusual? when I built this trans 15 years ago they were mis matched then so I installed grade 8 bolts that i know are incorrect - how unusual is that?
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Original Muncie bolts - head markings info on: March 11, 2013, 08:05:52 AM
I have the Muncie out of my 69 and was searching here and Team Camaro to find what bolts are correct for the Muncie trans, please if you have any pictures or information on any 67-69 Muncie's please share the information. I know my side cover bolts are incorrect, I am just trying to make it closer to day 1- thanks all!
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 engine build piston recomendations on: September 24, 2012, 11:47:38 AM
I spoke to Bub he suggested the JE/SRP piston 202890(for .030) he said this is what you use in your rebuilds and the 123567 was a custom built piston we didnt talk $ he suggested Jegs $832 for a set of those SRP are around $563 any issues with the SRPs?
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 engine build piston recomendations on: September 23, 2012, 11:36:10 AM
JE piston # 123567 and I cannot find any one that prices them online - any suggestions where to try?
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 engine build piston recomendations on: September 21, 2012, 12:00:01 AM
The J&E's are about $650-700.00.  Not $1200.00, this is what I use in all the engines that we build.......

Jerry


Jerry, after we spoke that's what they quoted me maybe I should try another vendor?
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 302 engine build piston recomendations on: September 19, 2012, 12:57:57 PM
and WHY have a Z28/302... unless you're going to build it and drive it as it was designed??...
If you want a 'daily driver' with 'Z28 emblems'...then pull the original 302 (store it away for *resale day*), and stick a stock 350 or 307 in it...

...the 302 (as designed) was classified by Chevy as a SHP (special high performance) engine....  not very many got that classification.
without the full gamut of factory parts, it ain't special...  (it's not the DZ stamp on the block that made it special)... Smiley

  Smiley     Just One Man's Opinion..  Smiley
well your right i should sell it and buy a 307 car
in the past my Z has had a 327 in it, a 396 a 427 and a 350 now I want the real 302 in it. with exhaust manifolds whats so wrong with having this as a driver? no more str$$t racing, no track time so I dont need a $1200 set of JE pistons... yes i will spin it up  and have some fun. after looking at all the options- Speed Pro, SRP, KB, Ricks, Wiseco its amazing that for whatever reason they are all different in compression and dome heights, rings, compositions
