General Discussion / Re: 1969 Z28 Oil Question
« on: October 31, 2017, 05:35:59 PM »
I have the stock oil filter, which was longer.( I am only aware of the 2 sizes. ) Since it sounds like your dip stick is the right length, another factor may be your dip stick tube got swapped out for a longer one? (not sure if they had different size tubes) just trying to piece together why yours is not reading correctly.

Every Z/28 I have seen has the flat tip dipstick. The one on my early 69Z 10B car measures 18 3/4 (flat portion) to the base of the cap.

Well it makes you wonder. If the tag is a repo, does that also led itself to the protect-o-plate, and the dealer invoice?

I am sure there are 10 10 cars that were ordered with some these options, but it does seem to good to be true, right?

Looks to be missing the under hood insulation as well, and the booster tag they have hanging on a brake line. I wonder what condition the car was in when they started?
Also I thought JohnZ car had a short spoiler, and was also a 2A car, right?

Indiana is the type of state where you have to go into the DMV to get things done. Luckily they hardly ever had long lines.
BUT I am from California and every person you have ever met or have yet to meet, is ahead of you in line out here. Even when you book an appointment, you are then in the "appointment line" ....what a joke. Still takes an hour with the appointment.
But there is a line that wraps around the building before they open, and without an appointment here it is about a 3-4 hour wait....

There are probably more cars out thee with the plugs in the manifolds than have the smog equipment. It got tossed by original owners pretty quickly. Some guys purchasing an original car would get lucky and the original owner may have just boxed it up.
Some of that original smog stuff sells for ridiculous money now, since it is scarce.

But, yes if you want the motor to appear original you would need to locate the smog. You can always remove the guts of the pump, and just have it for looks though ;)

Now who is the joker....😂

PURESS, I love the quote at the bottom of that CL ad :"A lot of people donot even know what kind of car it is."

made me laugh. Is that a selling point, if people don't know what kind of car you started with?

I have that magazine in my Donahue collection of items. I love the image on the front of the cover with the Penske Camaro clean & leading the pack and the Mustang bent up and plowing through the dirt.
Interesting comment that someone added about Mark stating the top was acid dipped in his Unfair Advantage book
( i have yet to read it)

I am curious Gary, with having the original springs why would you want to replace them? Did your car start sitting extra low in the front?
I ask because all of us have cars that are 40 years old, but many of us are still using the original springs i would think.

Oh, Gary would probably give you his, I think he is just going to part out his Orange Z any way..... ;D

(had to get some Friday humor in there for you Gary)  :D

Impressive. I learned  something here then. I have been around racing, but not nearly as long as many of you. I had no idea this was used as an alternative or in even purposeful in racing. Thanks for the education.

Not the most efficient as you mentioned but with the right set of gaskets it seems like it would work. If you swapped one way and the water jacket and ports lined up pretty close, it would seem you could do the same in reverse. Have I ever done it? "No."  That is out of my comfort zone. I have Mickey Moused some things on cars over the years to "make it work", but even if the car ran just a little inefficient, it would just rub me the wrong way.
