Thanks guys.  The only reason I am the person I am and the vehicles I now own; directly or indirectly is due to my father.  

Steve yes he sure did.  The POP shows he signed the paperwork on the 4th of April and in less than a month he had already started making changes and personalizing it.  I was actually giving it a tuneup and oil change today and while I was under the car I could still see the old paint in some of the hard to see places.  Set the timing at 33 degrees total (started to ping a little when I went higher but hadnt ran a full tank through the car yet), dwell at 30 & NGK plugs with 110 octane..  Definitely a world of difference..  Also cleared up the hesitation I was having off idle as well.

I also ran across some other pics of some local cars.  See if you remember some of these..





On a side note:
If anyone is looking into oils to run that has the correct amount of zinc (over 1500ppm) & phosphorus (over 1300ppm) go with Brad Penn Grade 1 Oil..  From my research they have a great reputation and it is 100% USA MADE.

Heres a 68 with the wick missing.  I would guess most either dry rotted or were broken off.

They are on 67 & 8 tail light housings.  Because the metal back housings that cause  moisture.  Pretty sure 69's do not have them.

Well as far as I know there has been the original steel wheels, keystones, some unknown mag wheel, Cragars, & rallyes..  I still have the Cragars, rallyes & a set of AR wheels (never were on his car but I plan on running them some) that I am currently running on my 67.  The mirror, spoilers & chrome on the doors & fender wells were added by him.  He bought the car with one thing in mind; which was drag racing.

The first pic is the last from April 1968.  The other 2 are from June 11th 1978

These were all taken April of 68 which the first week of April was when my father took ownership of the car.  As for the whole debate on the gloss vs satin vs semi gloss tail panels..  I was always on the semi or satin side until I found these pics.

Looks like someone has a RamRod style shifter in it at one time or another..

Just check voltage through the wire.  You should have voltage one way and not the other.

With light and/or ignition on or off ??


With lights off and ignition on.  Also do as Carbuff suggested if you havent already..

73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 X77 garage/barn find on: August 12, 2014, 06:59:04 AM
Congrats on the car.  Gonna be a pretty put back to original..

My 1967 02B LOS L35 auto has a chrome lid but no screen print, flame arrestor 4 dimple with GM stamp. My car
also has the smog equipment. The lid may be an over the counter replacement. I have a NOS one still in the box
and it looks just like it without screen print also. The part # for the nos one is 6423907

Not sure how I missed this but do you have a pic of the underside of both lids that you have?  Thanks, Darrell

Diode is in the RS under dash wiring harness.  It will be wrapped up in cloth tape.  Just check voltage through the wire.  You should have voltage one way and not the other.
