571  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: First attempt at Zinc Plating on: November 25, 2013, 08:14:40 AM
Not really..  The fiancee and I were sitting here one night (long before any plating) and I told her I wanted to own a business one day but I didnt know what to call it..  She said; "Well you look like a big angry redhead gorilla...  You should call it red gorilla restorations.."  And there you have it..  Something we both thought was funny and it had a good ring to it..  RGR for short.   Grin

So when I made out a receipt for Steve I went ahead and put that on there and figured I would give it a try as something on the side and see where it goes.  If it fizzles out then no harm.

Welcome to the group corvette bronze is great looking color! Big block or small block car 4speed  or automatic car. I love 68's the best.

And I thought it was Lemans '69's you were stuck on - shows what I know.

Just replace the plugs..  You can not get an accurate reading on reused plugs plus new plugs aren't that expensive..  With choke working correctly also check the resistance on the #5 plug wire  & reference it to the resistance to another wire of similar length..  Once that is don't install new plugs & drive it for 10-15 miles & look at plugs again.  Making sure #5 isn't fouling..  Just my $0.02

H21 9 is way too late for a 624 vin. Not crazy about the pad stamp, but I am no expert.

Good catch..  I over looked it this morning when I was on ebay..

Product came in yesterday from Palmetto , included was a page each of detailed instruction ,adding what has been tried and proven by you guys, I'm really looking forward to start this weekend with some bolts first.

What also arrived yesterday were my parts from "Red Gorilla Restorations" even mailed some change back ! They look great , better than the pics. Even more important to me is another guy out there who not only can be trusted with your irreplaceable parts ,but treats them with the same detail as his own---speaks volumes. I've followed this site many years( almost since it's inception" before becoming active . I've noticed a pattern of the same people--always positive and quick to offer help. Sending my parts out to Darrell was sort of like "paying it forward" good luck in your endeavors ,use me as a reference.

I truly enjoy helping others with their restorations.  It gives me pride to say that I was responsible for something on a beautiful car.  I guess it was something my father implanted in me.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to do work on your Z.

I would have thought the vin would NOT have been on the pad..  Hmmmmm  Was that just a NOR thing?  Pics to are crappy to tell if it good or bad for me..  Dates line up though..

First things first.  Make sure the float level is good.  Backfiring through the carb is a lean condition.  It could jetting, timing or both.  More than likely it is just carb tuning that needs to be done.  I would make sure the timing is in line with what it should be..  Also carb jets should be in the range of 68-72's on the primary and 72-76's on the secondaries..  But those are just stock settings and a lot of the time need to be dialed in to the elevation, etc. 

But all in all I would bet you either have trash in the carb, too low of a float level or jets too small..

Is there a way to do a mass search for the rear end on craigslist?

1968 AIM ---> page 137 UPC 11-13 A5

3916654


Not sure about the other..  Just guessing but maybe its for the rear (IF there is a difference); I did not see the trunk emblem in the AIM..  Probably due to Fisher Body installed it??  IDK  again just a guess.


There is definitely a visual difference..

I came across a '69 Z/28 for sale on line a few years ago that claimed to be the one that Chris Walken drove in "At Close Range". It was Dusk Blue though with a long story about how it was painted silver for the movie and then put back to blue. Did not ring true to me. I always remember that movie because I had a twin to that Z/28 when I was in high school!

That story is false.  I know the person that owns it and has owned it since 1970 or 71..  The car is actually Glacier Blue and not silver.   Wink  It is an early build Z.
