Now, where have I seen that photo before?   Huh   Wink   Cheesy

It looks like it was posted on Camaros.net back in 2007.  169Indy wrote: "I have a GM photo, copy (SCANNED) of the 68 Z28 engine bay photo that was printed in the Camaro Enthusiast a few years ago and rarely see people reference it with regards to details. Appears to be a Norwood car as evidence by the PTB stampings."

Ed Bertrand posted the picture for 169Indy.

Thanks again Jerry!  I found a link to a larger version of that picture on this site:

That is a GREAT pic Jerry!!!

69 AIM UPC-6, sheet C6 + JohnZ's car + 68 Magazine pic equals the heat riser goes the other way.



What magazine was the picture in?  Also, what is the month and year of the magazine?

Thanks Gary!!!

Compared to UPC-6, sheet C6, I took it from being correct to being not correct.  Crud.  The heat riser is going to have more miles on it than the car.  LOL.



The deduction was 1 point.  Under "Exhaust Manifolds"........"Heat riser in wrong position".  I didn't see this judging info until after judging was done.  There was a lot of judging going on at the same time.

It looks like it is parallel to the frame in your more recent pics which is different then the AIM
Austin, You are referring to the 69 AIM, UPC N10, Sheet A2 shown below?

If so, it's not real clear to me how the heat riser goes on.  Do you have any other pages that show it better?


I took a close-up picture this morning of my car's heat riser.


A friend of mine has a 68 Camaro with a 327 that his Dad bought new in 1968.  He told me at least twice, before the Camaro Nationals, that I had it on backwards but I didn't take his advice.    When I added his advice plus the deduction, I decided to change it around.  Unless I have hard documentation to prove otherwise, I'm leaving it this way.

with the new pics you posted, it is easier for me to see the spark plug boot shields look correct . BUT I see your heat riser valve positioned differently now as well. Is this the corrected pic?
The 3 engine pics I posted recently (front pic and the 2 side pics) are all taken after the correction to the heat riser valve.

Hey David 2 questions. Is your Alternator fan zink plated and where did you get you rad hoses?

Thanks

Hi Mike, I've been wracking my brain over the last few hours trying to remember some of the stuff I've done.  My wife and I bought a foreclosure house back in April and mentally I've been all over the place since then.  

Anyway....the original alternator fan was very rusty when I bought the car.  If I'm remembering right, I went with Zinc plating.  For the radiator hoses, I got them from pacecarjeff.

You may want to check your orientation on your exhaust heat riser valve, we are discussing this on another thread on CRG. I think one person said it looks like this in the AIM others had factory unrestored ones parallel with the frame rail, or maybe they were installed both ways?
Also I can't tell for sure but your spark plug boot shields should have a semi curve notch in them, I can't seem to see it on yours, but maybe they have them and your manifolds are to clean for me to tell from the pic.

I had the heat risers on the other way and I got a 1-point deduction for it.  Maybe some were installed the other way, I'm really not sure.

I'll check the spark plug boot shields.

Thanks!

Upper control arms were assembled to the shaft with the bushings, then dip painted black. Ball joint added afterwards. So the shafts were painted to begin with but it did not adhere well. If you look closely at the Hot Rod test car it is apparent.

Very well done engine bay David!

Thanks William!  I have a very high regard for your opinion and I definitely appreciate your input.  I have learned an incredible amount on the CRG and I still have a lot to learn.

I have two more engine pics:

Here's a better engine picture. If anything is not correct, please let me know.  I know there are a few things that I still have to fix.  Thanks!

41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro Z/28 Original Transmission and Axle ratio combination on: November 28, 2013, 10:51:40 PM
BE or BV or QY is 4.10 ratio.

I voted "4.11 rear" since it's the closest one, and I have a BV code with a M21.




Not quite sure what you mean. 4.11 is not an option from the factory or in the poll.

Thanks for fixing it.  Google's cache shows it before the fix: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.camaros.org%2Fforum%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D11532.0&rlz=1C1BLWB_enUS541US562&oq=cache%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.camaros.org%2Fforum%2Findex.php%3Ftopic%3D11532.0&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i58.6788j0j4&sourceid=chrome&espv=210&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8

43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I am the only one that ordered the wrong shirt! on: October 24, 2013, 02:17:38 PM
I haven't received it yet, but I think it is a Navy front only size Large. I would think it would be here any day now. I am in California so I may be one of the farther shipping addresses, other than the guy in Sweden.

Austin,  I bought 4 shirts and I can trade you for my size large w/ front & back.



44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: CRG t-shirts - How to order on: October 24, 2013, 02:07:17 PM
My shirts came in this week and they are awesome!!!    Smiley
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This is why you NEVER trust anyone on ebay on: July 20, 2013, 05:15:08 AM
notice the name on the pop - dead giveaway as a fake

With a mirror image, it looks like "Verl G Whips" out of Grant Nebraska.
With a quick Google search, it looks like there is a "Verl G Whips" who is 67 years old and lives in West Sacramento, CA.
