Restoration / Re: what is the best 4" cowl hood for 68 pro street

VFN fiberglass & either a modern billet style hinge or a stock one with a weak spring and a hood prop.  I like the Sunoco hood myself.

Makes sense they fit since you swapped to drums.  They wont fit with 4 piston.  That is why I asked.

Welcome.  Could you post the vin?  I assume NOR built car?  Gotta love the early 302 emblem'd 68's.. 


Additional question.  Did you run spacers for the 15x4 Cragars back in the day for the 4 piston calipers or did you swap the brakes?

I agree Jon...    Team Camaro is more suited to 'aftermarket updates'...   CRG should stay true to it's purpose and function!



I think CRG does stay true..  Next you will want to build a wall around CRG..  Nothing wrong with having diversity..  lol  sorry that was a political joke and I couldn't help myself.. 


Team Camaro.?.  Do people still go there?

The timing chain I used is the single link type so as to keep in-sync to type used back then, though it is not nylon covered (was the BB nylon too?)

Mike

Yes it was.  Green car had a nylon in it until it stripped out at 50K miles and killed all 8 exhaust valves.  That was in the early 80's.  I still remember dad pulling the heads in the driveway and me fetching sockets, ratchets & wrenches.


As for the comments on the safety and correctness this can be a slippery slope for many.  I am in a different group than the 2 sides forming and I think many will agree that as long as it is not seen once the restoration is complete I do not see an issue with upgrading internal comments.  That goes for engine, trans, diff and hell even the radio..

Since you brought up another white Z...

Looks like original paint and the tag is legit but just seems heavy with the white on the underside for a NOR car..

I can't say for certain but you can pull the baseplate off and verify by looking for the valve.  I am pretty sure all carbs built now have them but I would still double check for piece of mind.  Waiting on Holley for a response may take a while FWIW.  They also offer a kit to install the valve into older carbs as well.

Some carbs have it some don't.  Just depends on how its circuited..  But for this discussion the 4053 has the check ball and is needed to work correctly as per how it was engineered.



EDIT:

I have posted this before and is a good starting point in understanding how a Holley works..  There are more detailed articles out there but this one is good.

Secondary diaphragm check ball




Check ball is used to limit the amount of air the diaphragm sees and allows a more progressive opening of the secondaries.  If the check ball was left out it would not cause the issue that Danny was having.  Diaphragm still holds the secondaries in closed position through the use of the spring.  It requires velocity of air traveling across the venturi in order for the diaphragm & secondaries to work.  Simply revving the engine does not create the amount velocity for the secondaries to open unless to go WOT and even then it is very minimal.  Most than likely the pv was the issue in this case.

Im not gonna get in a pissing match but you do not know what you are talking about.

Good luck and I hope you get it figured out Danny..

As for the liquid filled gauge you are comparing stock eliminator racers to average enthusiasts.. I will stand behind my statement when heat isn't an issue.  Racing is a completely different scenario and I am aware of both.

FYI if the shafts were worn then it would be a vacuum leak..  Has nothing to do with fuel being pulled into the venturi. More so the lack of fuel being pulled in..  Also Secondary shafts very rarely wear like the primaries..  Also nothing wrong with liquid filled gauge as long as heat isn't involved with the accuracy..
