I had spoken with Gardner. They offer the hangers unplated (natural metal) in their base kit. For an additional sum of money they will
plate the hangers. They called it galvanizing but perhaps they mean silver plating.
Does any one know how the judges at a major meet would evaluate plated hanger brackets when the originals were unplated?

What is the correct finish for the exhaust hangers on a 69 Z28? I am referring to the metal hanger brackets. I am assuming they were either unpainted or silver cadmium? Perhaps galvanized? Thank You.

Thanks a lot guys.
19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 5468309 Master Cylinder on: February 25, 2011, 01:00:00 PM
I just removed the master cylinder and booster from my 69 Z28 and installed the correct ones.
The master cylinder I removed is part # 5468309, broadcast code EA, and date code 10. What is the application for this?
The booster is stamped on the top ear 3239 (front) and CL on the rear. No other markings. What is the application for this?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Was wondering why Ben's car is in C and yours in D?
Also what horsepower factor has NHRA assigned to the 67 Z28 to have it running all the way up in D stock?

For the correct front speaker go to Phone 763 780 2861. I recently bought my front speaker from them. It is a 8 to 10 ohm speaker. It is correcct. Do not use a 4 ohm speaker.
As to the bracket I placed an add on Team Camaro and turned one up. They are also on ebay fairly regularly.

How difficult is it to come up with a 532 CCW advance cam for the 1111480 distributor? What other GM distributors was this long slot advance cam used in?  Thanks.

The  orbital flywheel surfacer used to be called a blanchard grinder. May have other name(s) now.
I would not overlook engine mounts.

I was looking at some of the Eastwood coatings as it seems they used to have a "cast blast" paint. Can't find it now. They have a "detail gray" which is for cast iron parts. Is this what you would use now? If not in a rattle can what paint brand and mix number are you using? Thanks.

Paragon makes fittings for the nylon (plastic) oil pressure lines such as is on the 69 Z28?
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Oil line fitting on: March 26, 2010, 11:05:46 AM
Just to follow up. I borrowed a tapered hand reamer and was able to clean up (ie smooth) the inside seating surface well enough that the fitting is not leaking,
Sure seems that someone would be making these GM style block fittings though! Thanks for the suggestions. This site is very helpful.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Oil line fitting on: March 23, 2010, 11:10:13 PM
Well, respectfully I don't think so. I looked that item up before my initial post and I do believe that is the standard compression fitting with a farrow and is not compatible with the GM proprietary end and nut on the oil line kit provided by either HBC or NPD or Rics etc. I have one just like it from NPD. I am guessing I can simply cut the GM stuff off the end of my newly purchased oil line kit and use the standard compression fitting with farrow. The GM does appear to be a better connection though.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Oil line fitting on: March 23, 2010, 05:02:34 PM
Needed to replace my mechanical oil pressure line and ran into the GM proprietary fittings.
Bought the nylon oil line with GM fittings from NPD as well as a new block fitting. No problem on the gauge end but the engine end is a different matter. My original GM fitting in the block is battered and will not seal. GM no longer has these block fittings. The block fitting from NPD is of the standard compression fitting type with a farrow.
What do folks do in this instance? I suppose one could simply cut the new nylon (plastic) line to remove the GM wedge shape swedge and brass insert and use the standard farrow type compression fitting. Or is there a source for the original GM block fittings? Thanks.

Sorry I couldn't post a jpeg. Couldn't get my resizer to work-it used to. I will work on that. I will repaint to a suede black.
Car spent two years in Kentucky, then 36 years in southern California, a year and a half in Oklahoma and the last several months here in Missouri.  No rust in this area at all!

On page 199 of Jerry's book he does state 711600 as the end of production at Norwood. But on page 201 of the same book he states production ended at Norwood " around 711700".  I was surprised also on the 11C date but the serial number seems to put it in the last day or so of production.
