Block looks good to me.  It would be better if the car owner new that his original block was still out there.  I.E. the reason for Kurt posting this. 
437  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Choosing the correct window molding clips ? on: May 22, 2014, 03:56:20 PM
What little research I did when I was putting the front and back glass in my 67 was the one you have labeled rear with the serrated edge was the front and the ones like in the catalogs were the rear.

I ordered them off ebay.

The front windshield:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/310731077667?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2648

Back glass:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/370006022566?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

I can post pictures of what the extra clips look like once I get home.  Fit was nice and tight and they are even with the body (referring to the trim).









I didnt take any pics of the back glass but the fit and finish was the same.

Just an FYI this is not a Pypes kit.  Just the muffler was Pypes.  I wanted to be able to tuck the exhaust up against the car and I didnt know how the Pypes system would fit so I went this route.  Cost was about the same as getting the kit but I got a deal on the labor since I was doing 40% of it.

I went with this config. 3.5" collector reducing down to 2.5" into a x-pipe and going through Pypes Pro Race Crossflow muffler and the tailpipes are in the stock location.  I think it sounded great but the fiancee thinks its extremely too loud..  lol but still wants to drive it once its finished.  Go figure.  Once I finish with the engine I plan on posting a vid of how it sounds.  Also note that the aftermarket aluminum diff cover worked with the muffler.

Pic of the assembly and fabbing of the exhaust.

Looks like the car was originally an automatic..  What are the plans with the car?  Put back original or back to the way you want it?  Either way good luck on the project.
442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: No fire to the plugs on: May 16, 2014, 01:51:58 PM
Purchased a 69Z-has not been cranked in at least 12 years...  Motor turns but not firing.  Pulled plug and watched as somebody turned motor and no spark on plug.  Changed coil.  No fire.  Next step I assume is inside distributor?  What direction do I take?   Thanks

I can almost guarantee it is the points. Sitting that long the points get oxidized and corroded. With Key in off position, Remove distributor cap, 2 push down releases, take off rotor (2 screws) exposing points below. Take a small file (nail file will work) and put it between the contacts (apply a little pressure by pushing on the movable arm with your finger or screw driver) . Now, many manuals say NOT to file points, but they are not dealing with old, sitting idle stuff, so ignore that advice. After you file points, bump starter to close gap. Run (drag) a business card through the contacts a few times. This insures they are clean with no residue. Turn key on and crank engine watching for a spark jumping across points and looking for contact movement in and out. You may not see a visible spark easily, but with contact closed (key in on or run position)you can take a screw dr. and gently pry the contact arm and you should see a spark. Put everything back together and crank  checking for spark at plug. A cheap inline spark tester from harbor freight is good for this task. To check point gap is adequate, bump starter till points are in open position. Use a matchbook cover and set gap to cover thickness. A young fella may not have access to a dwell meter and this is a farmer's way and darn close.

Agreed.

Although I would go ahead and get a meter..  I cant tell you how many times I have used this little thing.

What distributor?  HEI or points?  First thing I would do is pull the cap and make sure the rotor is turning while its cranking.
444  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: No fire to the plugs on: May 16, 2014, 11:41:11 AM
What distributor?  Also did you check more than one plug to make sure it was or wasnt firing?

Very nicely done.  I do see one thing though.  There is a speck of dust on the white top just above the a pillar..

Seriously though the car looks great.  Get out there and enjoy driving that thing.  Thats what they were made for!!!

Also Gary's is different than ko-lek-tor's.  Garys has SAE J1703 Brake Fluid

FYI those pits and scratches can be worked out with time and patience.

Before


After - Notice that this is the style like the one you posted Bill.

Not sure about the database but I would venture to guess that well over half were ordered without tach & gauges.  I would also say the same about the spoilers.  Cowl plenum was also an option which died off after the first part of production (1968).
