How's your motor coming Darrell? I guess I can hijack my own thread!


Its coming.  Motors out, on the stand and everything looks good at this point.  Clayed the tops of the pistons today and the P to V clearance is about 0.050"  Still scratching my head as to how the problem happened.  My thinking is the springs may be close to coil binding at above idle or the springs are too leak for the cam.  Next will be to have the heads looked over and a new set of springs installed.  Then it'll go back together.  Cam, lifters, cylinder walls and bearings all look good.  Still debating on whether or not to reuse the current cam or go with a solid roller.  Time will tell. Cool

I'd like to see you have that car Darrell, know you have a sweet spot for 68's ,might as well have a pair !

Yes I do have a soft spot for the 8's.  Especially the early Z's with the 302 emblems but I still would love to have this one as well.  Maybe down the road once I finish the red car then I can start the search for another one.  Little lady wants a 55 or 57 first though..  Trying to convince her that 55's are the better of the 2.  Not to mention on favorite tri-5.   Wink

Darrell not only does "the picture taker need to be fried" they also listed the exterior color as BLACK....

Shouldnt that equal a 5K discount for incorrect info..??..   Grin

Anyone got 25-30K they want to let me borrow/have?  I would love to have this car..

The picture taker needs to be fired...

Less than 2K away from my car.  Closest one yet that I have seen.  Thanks Paul.

Someone here bought that car (well what was left).  Cant remember who though.  Wish I knew the vin; it was built one week after mine.
335  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 $$$..
336  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Z28, One Owner Carolina Blue Crossram JL8 on: May 02, 2014, 09:45:49 AM
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..
337  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stripe delete on: May 02, 2014, 09:41:59 AM
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.

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.

Well, I just paid my $50 so fingers crossed!

Ditto.  Its the waiting game now.
341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: So you think you have a Dana, Nickey,Berger Baldwin, etc...? on: April 29, 2014, 02:56:12 PM
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..







344  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
