Congrats, and welcome to the site. PLEASE post some pics for us, we are all picture junkies, and I know I enjoy seeing the pictures of a new purchase.

General Discussion / Re: Stahl Step Headers ('69 Z28)
« on: July 30, 2013, 03:58:07 PM »
Thats 400 rear wheel hp. I was looking at some stainless steel headers they are around $850, but they do not step. I do like the idea of having the low rpm torque, and then still have the high rpm flow, but it isn't worth $400 more right now. The other thing I have to factor in right now is also clearance for my Z bar, I may switch to a 6 speed and slave cylinder in the near future though. So if I sell a few items and have some extra $, who sells the stahl for the best price, or can you only purchase through them? I appreciate the input

well I am actually inquiring for another vehicle, I have a 64 C/10 with a 327 that is a little over 400 hp, I have some headman headers on it right now but they are only 1 1/2 primary tubes. The motor revs up a little higher than 8k, so similar to the 302. It would be nice to pick up a set of those headers for it. The price on the website is like $1200 though.....a bit much for me. the hedman were a little under $400.

I think you would have to be running some pretty crazy horsepower for it to show anykind of wear on that control arm shaft. I have had some big block cars that broke the drivers side motor mount even with it broken it didn't move many inches, just enough to break the fan shroud on one of my cars, but not much more. You would really have to put some effort in to see some major affects.

thats the grandson behind the wheel, the original owner is in the wheel chair with his son in the green shirt. This was taken shortly before he passed, and right before I purchased the car. *correction* The car was actually sold soon before he passed.
Wish I could of thanked him myself for how well he kept the car up.

Thats what I was thinking, you should ask both owners what happened to the original license plates. Hopefully my original owners wife could locate mine.

I am trying to plan a similar trip to the original owners wife and son (owner passed thats why the car got sold). The original owner cherished the car, kept every piece of paperwork, other than a possible window sticker.

I was amazed at the level of preservation all the documents were in as well as the car.

on a different note, HUBLEYMAN what is with all the black residue on the underside of your deck lid? I have a similar film of black on the underside of mine , did your car have some kind of rust proofing done at one point?

Well just judging based on the pics of the 2 short spoiler cars, (johnZ, hubleyman) have the acorn nuts and "dog point studs". The 2 later cars have the full spoiler, with the other style studs and nuts. So it seems like spoiler size determined what hardware you got possibly? I think we need other guys with original D80 cars to chime in so we have a better sample size.

my nuts look like they have a bigger washer, and the studs on my spoiler are different.

I will give that a whirl. The nice thing about dong it in the junkyards, is you don't have to worry about the seat cover. I was trying to be super careful and not bend anything more than I needed to. "There could be nothing under seat" thats what I told myself last time when i walked away from it... :P

I was thinking there was some hooks under the seat that held it in place. I tried pushing the seat in far enough to get over the hooks, but as I said I must be to weak...

Well, the original owner of my car was good about keeping notes o the car and every receipt. He just wasn't all that great about organizing them. I found a couple of receipts under the drivers seat carpet. So I thought there may be an extra one under the rear seat. It would be nice just to check it out. To bad they never put the build sheet back there, this is a car that would have preserved it if they had.
