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.

They are 1975 or older.
814  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Headers on: July 09, 2013, 09:13:50 PM
These are at least 1975 as far as age.  Rust is the color on these.  lol  Like I said Ill get pics of them tomorrow.  Im thinking they are BlackJacks..  Are there any identifying numbers or locations for stampings that I could look for?  Any chance you have any catalogs from them Jon?

Wow Chick..  Did you know my dad?  lol  He was 20 when he bought the Chevelle and 22 when he ordered the 68.  My parents lived in Painesville & Mentor Ohio in the the mid to late 60's and he worked at Lucas Machine.

I am trying to identify some headers I have that came with my 68 302 car.  They have the square 4 bolt collectors and the flanges are separated on the head side, meaning the middle primaries are not connected to the outer two.  Ill post pics tomorrow.

Something I noticed was the first pic shows the power steering cap as the plastic multi rib top.  When was the transition from the other 2 rib metal cap?  My Nov built 307 car had the 2 rib metal cap..?..  Was it another case of multiple suppliers?

Since everyone loves to see pictures I thought I would share what I ran across a few days ago.  As I was going through some old photos at my mothers I ran across this one.  Still going through old pictures and hoping I find more of the vintage ones of the cars.

And the car he traded in for the Camaro.

You might want to try to grease the z-bar (fitting is in the middle of the bar).  I know my 69 used to do the same thing as yours.  This seemed to help with mine.  Just a thought.
822  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Headers on: June 27, 2013, 10:07:26 PM
I know I'm not Jon but I used to work at Holley as the tech support for Hooker & flow tech headers..  The 2204 is the part number for Hooker headers..  If I'm not mistaken they are the super comps with 1 3/4 primaries & 3" collectors & were able to be used with ps but not a/c.  I'm going off memory so I might not be 100%.

Different was suppose to be just diff.   Dang Iphone autocorrect..
824  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heads up on bellhousing alignment on: June 23, 2013, 06:59:29 PM
Have you checked your rear axle pinion angle? It needs to be the same angle as the engine and tranny.
 

I have always set my pinion angle at a -2 degrees with full suspension load.  This is to compensate for the rapping of the different underload. 


A problem I had back several years ago on my 69 when I installed a new clutch and had the flywheel resurfaced.  Once installed I had a vibration in the shifter above 3k and got worse the higher the rpm to the point it would shake the whole car.  Swapped out for another clutch and same thing.  Pulled it out again and swapped flywheels and vibration gone.  Moral of the story is make sure the flywheel & clutch assembly is balanced.

Granted this is on a 68 but should have been the same process I would think..  I do not know why someone painted over the cowl with black but you can see what is underneath.
