76  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1969 - Orphans / Re: 69 DZ Block 19N687352 on Craigslist Vancouver on: August 26, 2011, 07:27:24 AM

I know this is an old thread but with distributors and alternators bringing 1000-1800$ and thats for a dated component-no serial numbers then I would think that a born with block would be the "Icing on the cake" to get the only block the cars was born with would be worth 4-5k, course if the owner of my block would offer that I'd probably choke on it.

the thought of having a perfectly restored nut and bolt car is to me just a thought. I want a driver- a nice one but not perfect - chips/dings be damned! I'm not going to live forever, My son can do with it what he wants when I'm gone

The manual steering arms will work, but are probably not the ones you want for the faster steering ratio.
you can make it too fast, I did the Iroc swap on my 69 Nova with the longer pitman arm but not the short steering arms - you dont want the car twichy or too fast ratio do the gearbox swap then the arms later if you need more

if its a driver I'd say run without one -the factory never had anything
81  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Frame connectors on: June 09, 2011, 07:51:07 AM
Ive used DSE's on 2 cars now and would do it again IMO bolt an are useless and hang too low just make sue subframe is where it needs to be, run solid bushings. they drive like no other F-body I've owned

My son has been around my cars all his life and he's hooked too. He's anxiously awaiting for me to pass my cars on-which is a good thing maybe he will get them running Smiley I think the demand for the muscle cars will be around as long as the baby boomers are. Although fewer and fewer will know how to fix them. when I started dating my wife in 79 I told her I had a Z28 and she was expecting the car Spicoli totaled in Fast times at Ridgemont, she looked at my 69 and well, you how the nose turned. She has come around. Its all about the history - Kinda a shame that there is no Z now but what they are planning sounds good!

the first one I bought from a dealer was like 122$ in like 1978 ahh the good ole days
85  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: restamped distributor on: August 04, 2010, 12:40:45 PM

I can't afford buying all original nos parts, dist., alt. starter, etc., but I can afford a restamped part. I would never pass any restamped part as original.
I'm in the same boat I'd like to put mine back original as possible but the date code thing makes mine hard- late 69 build -I just dont see much available for them. all the parts you list above are rediculous on Fleabay sorry I cant see 1k plus for a points distributor for original #s if thats the only difference is what its stamped on it
86  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: spindle length on: December 23, 2009, 02:55:12 PM

88  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Smoke from Oil Breather Filter on: September 24, 2009, 12:48:29 PM
Smoke from breather usually means excess crankcase pressure or blow by. an engine is an air pump as it wears(or breaks) air or combustion gases get past the rings and into the crankcase - causing the smoke, this can be from a broken ring land(misfire)as suggested above a compression test or leakdown test may be needed to further diagnose your issue - I'm afraid the prognosis is not very good by the sounds of it.
