211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: fake protecto plates heard any stories on: May 02, 2014, 01:33:50 PM
There is always human error when it comes to data entry.  Now with that being said I have seen pop's that were a little off or letters or numbers left off by accident.   I have also seen hidden vins that are a number off from the actual vin plate in the dash.  Anymore almost nothing is 100%.


EDIT:

After rereading your statement/question I see what you are asking now.  Yes there are many different fake pop's out in the world.  That should not be the only doc that a person should verify.  As twisted as this world is if you want to be 100% correct with a purchase of a car you have to do your homework.  IF you are still uncertain; there are people out there that will look a car over for you for $$$..

The camaro is scheduled to be sold on Friday May 16th 2014. Buyer Beware. There is lots of 1st gen camaro's for sell on Mecum's auction, plus this gem.... Shocked

Waste of a 4th gen and 1st gen sheetmetal.

As for the Carolina Blue car in the beginning I have my doubts the car was ever ordered with crossram or JL8..

Yes, My car was ordered without stripes. It's marked on the build sheet as: (Stripes to be deleted). It also has the special paint code (-) on the trim tag.

This is true for late 68 & 9.

67 would have been 0-0 & early 68 would have been Z-Z

Scroll down till you get to - Cowl Tag Examples for Special Paint


Do you have a pic of tag? I have a 67RSSS that is said to be a factory bb delete.
Looking into a little more verification.

Just post a pic of your trim tag and we will be able to help you.

Sounds like a Honda.



Your kidding right..

guys be patient the roll out will be a big task on our end, but hopefully we will have no major glitches.

Pretty sure everyone will be patient as we are very appreciative of the efforts of this service.  If they are not; they are ignorant and need not waste your time.
216  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: So you think you have a Dana, Nickey,Berger Baldwin, etc...? on: May 01, 2014, 06:47:42 AM
Well, I just paid my $50 so fingers crossed!

Ditto.  Its the waiting game now.

Is May 1st still a go or will there be another delay?

Looks like the pushrods were clearanced for more oil delivery, eh ?

Hate you had to do that, after working so long to finish it up. At least the firewall and long block look like they parted cleanly - no marks -

Guess the pushrod ends are in the pan - had to come out anyway you look at it.

Regards -
 

It definitely is a handful pulling a big block by yourself.  I almost had it out and then had to drop it back down to close the garage door to get the engine & trans high enough to come out.  lol
I found a couple pieces in the valley of the heads and also had a tip fall out of the header... Shocked Angry

More detail pics of the pushrods.








After working some OT today; I was able to pull the engine out tonight.  Tomorrow I will be able to tear it down and see where the problem is hiding..







220  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bad Luck is Better Than No Luck; Right? on: April 23, 2014, 09:11:33 AM
sorry to hear about it

also check your rocker arm ratio

for example , if the engine was set up for 1.7s then someone installed 1.8s  
it could have an interference problem


Thanks.  1.72 ratio

Again Idk if the pistons were made for open chamber or not.  I didnt build it.  Ill snap a few pics later on when I get off work.  I really havent had any time to look over anything at this point.  Just took a few minutes yesterday morning to pull all the pushrods out.  If I have time this week I should be able to get a better idea of the problem.

As for the ratio its stock 1.72

222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Need help with 1967 RS headlights on: April 22, 2014, 04:17:07 PM
Yes the purple and black pigtail.  If you can not get it to power up by either way then the motor is bad.
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bad Luck is Better Than No Luck; Right? on: April 22, 2014, 09:20:33 AM
Yeah knowing how I am; Ill be pulling the motor and doing a complete teardown, inspection & rebuild.  Sucks but I will feel better about it knowing I built the engine...

Also, when I was using the Snap-on bore scope I noticed metallic on the tops of pistons (which is expected) along with scoring on the cylinder wall on at least one cylinder.  Needless to say I could chew nails at this point.  But I am already running combos through my head on how I want to build it.
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bad Luck is Better Than No Luck; Right? on: April 21, 2014, 08:56:02 PM
Reason I say I am speechless is that this was over looked (piston to valve clearance) in the build process..
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bad Luck is Better Than No Luck; Right? on: April 21, 2014, 08:17:34 PM
Whelp after looking into it 5 of the exhaust pushrods were bent & one intake.  That's checking them on the work bench. I'll know 100% tomorrow when I get to work & roll them on the granite slab.  Further investigation has concluded that the exhaust valves are hitting the pistons.  Later in the week I'll do a leak down & go from there.  I'm speechless at this point.
