1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: First 2015 COPO Camaro being auctioned on: April 15, 2015, 08:43:26 PM
Cars are sold on a bill of sale and are not street legal. Yes, my good friend won the U.S. national and set a class record at the Same race. They also have a 4 speed transmission, g force. I was at the factory last Saturday and they are in full swing and getting ready to start the season, I hope he can get my zl-1 done for a June race.

I have looked at every picture I can find and it is really hard to determine the timing cover and oil pan bolts, the intake bolts looks like I it is zinc.

The repop oil pan bolts were zinc and I stripped them in vinegar over night, the timing cover bolts are stainless. I am having them tool blacked to see how they come out.

I am still looking to verify the finish on the oil pan and timing cover bolts. My though is that they did not use bright zinc finish at tonawanda for fasteners that for the most part were being painted engine orange, hence they would use the black phospated bolts??

On the next question, were the alluminum intake. Bolts zinc or black?

Being that the zl1 motor only had the timing cover and oil pan to paint black along with the water pump, were these parts painted off of the motor? If so, we're the bolts black phosphated? Head markings? Captive washer?

He is local and has been around for years, the highest prices in the us, even higher than paragon. If he has what you need, good luck. I was dumping my vette parts at a local swap meet and he walks up and asks how much for the bb water pump, I tell him $25, he says $15, I replied, I will throw it in the trash on the way out for that, he handed me the $25. I think I would have felt better watching him dig through the dumpster for it. All he is doing is using eBay for free advertising and getting out all of his casting dates and numbers in one place.

Use any factory weight over the junk ones that come in the kit, use one gold and 1 silver for all in between 2,500-3,000 rpm.

I have a distributor machine and without it you cannot get it right without a lot of trials in the car.

I have learned that there are numerous shafts that had different profiles, plus the weights and the springs. The stock profiles are slow and lazy, if nothing else, order the mr gasket 247 distributor kit and use the springs listed above, the brass bushing limits the total advance by 6 degrees.

For bb cars I use 18 initial and 20 mechanical.

My bottle has nothing on it, the cardboard sleeve is blank as well. I agree that it looks more red

Can anybody tell me the correct orange for the 69 space saver spare  bottle, or at least something close. Mine is the shorter one with the rounded top, could be an amc unit

Go out and buy the mr gasket 927 spring kit and use one gold and one silver spring, this should give you all of your advance in by 2500-2800. The weights in the kits are not good, look for a set of original ones. I tried them in all combinations on my distributor machine, and the silver and gold combo comes out as the best most of te time

Can anybody tell me if you can remount one of the spacesaver tires? We can't figure out how or why e would have this rim on the spacesaver tire
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 dg ralley wheel w space saver spare on: February 18, 2012, 09:19:04 PM
Did they ever come with the ralley wheel ? What is it that he has?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 67 dg ralley wheel w space saver spare on: February 18, 2012, 07:05:45 PM
I spoke with the original owner of a 67 Camaro that he bought new. He believes that the space saver spare he showed me came in the trunk. From what I have read, no space saver was available in 67. The rim is a 14x6 ralley with the bf Goodrich 7.35 x 14  tire, the rim is silver on the front and black on the back with the silver over spray and the original micro wheel weight. Keep in mind this retired gm executive raced this car from the beginning and it has never been inflated. Can you remount a space saver tire? The only markings on the wheel are the DG next to the valve stem. I have never seen a ralley rim on a space saver tire

Evapo rust is the best thing I have ever seen or used. I leave it in overnight and it looks like new.
