That wagon is extremely cool..
797  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stahl Step Headers ('69 Z28) on: July 26, 2013, 03:25:29 PM
My experiences the 1 5/8 on the stepped allows for better low end torque and once you get into the rpms the 1 3/4 allows the exhaust to move out of the header.  A full 1 3/4 you loose the low end and with the 1 5/8 you leave a little on the table in the upper rpms.  So a good stepped header is a great street car header.

'68 but I didnt think there was a difference on the BB open element air cleaner..   Huh

Curious if anyone has or can post up photos of an original air cleaner lid, hose to the crankcase vent and flame arrestor.  Photos of the top side and underside of the lid & base if possible.  Thanks, Darrell

This is what I was working on today..  Setting the valves and adjusting the carb.  Original owner (my uncle) car, early 90s restoration.  My father actually rebuilt the engine back then and I am the only other person to work on the car besides my father and uncle.  Super clean and well documented car.  Interesting story behind the car; he traded in a Marina Blue 67 SS Chevelle and had originally ordered a Fathom Green 69 SS Chevelle but the dealer got in this Garnet Red car from another dealer and he had them add power steering at the dealer and took it home.  Car has also been in Chuck Hanson's ACES magazine as well.  Just thought I would share.

Just verified in 67 assemly manual horns 67-68 rs are mounted on center latch support see page 426 & 427 fpr picture. Good job cook your dad trained you well!

According to the 68 factory assembly manual UPC 12 A8 - main shot shows the upper horn (low) & then the view B is the lower horn (high ).  Also the photo I showed of the standard headlight is an original unrestored car.

Are '68 horns mounted the same as '67? If so I can send pics from a '67 RS/SS survivor.

Mike

67 & 8 used the same horns for RS as far as I know.

Wow this thread has been risen from the dead.  Lol. Maybe this will help.

Those will work just not forged which isnt a huge deal if this is strictly a restoration.  Also look at Icon Performance Pistons (summitracing.com).  Also if you call JE, SRP or Wiseco pistons they can custom build you a set if needed.  Hope that helps.

Very cool.
807  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: hugger orange z with green interior on: July 12, 2013, 11:07:42 PM
Definitely an odd combo..  Makes you wonder if LSD was involved in the ordering process..  Lol
808  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Huggar Orange touch up paint on: July 12, 2013, 07:07:21 AM
That's actually a more complex question than you may realize.  First off, is this a repainted car?  If so, was base clear used?  If repainted what paint code was used?  More than likely there will be a shade or two difference when touching up.  If it were me, I would go to my local paint supplier with the hugger orange paint code & tell them you need a small amount for touch up purposes.  But again the uncertainty of the paint on the car now could play a role on how well it matches.

I definitely see the similarities but I also see that the merging of the colllectors are different in lengths.  Not sure if that could have been a manufacturing change or what but they are very similar.

Here are the pics.
