Originality / 1969 Z valve cover picture, open element air cleaner
« on: September 26, 2012, 03:02:52 PM »
Anyone have an original z with the open element air cleaner that could post a picture of the passenger side? I would like to see how your hose comes off the valve cover and into the base of the air cleaner. I saw a old road test picture where the hose is on different than mine and trying to figure it out. I have two air cleaner bases, the original and a repop, and the repop doesnt fit right. Tube is welded too far up in it.

Restoration / 69 brake calipers
« on: September 07, 2012, 08:37:42 PM »
My z has some problems with the front calipers. The mechanic helping me is concerned the pistons are pretty rusty. I am wondering, can someone rebuild these with new pistons? I have seen kits but with no pistons.  My buddy has a set of calipers off a 69 or 70 chevelle and the pistons measure just over 2.75 inches in diameter. Would these work? we put mine back on and didnt measure them.
also,  does anyone stainless steel sleeve these like corvettes?

Restoration / springs on 69z
« on: August 27, 2012, 06:34:00 PM »
Just had my front springs replaced and the moog ones from HBC were 2 coils higher. Car doesn't sit where it should. No one is selling the specific ones anymore so these were genetic  for small block, no air. anyone have better luck? Also appears the back springs are sagging. anyone  tried to rearch them?

Originality / 4 clip trim ring
« on: July 25, 2012, 01:53:26 AM »
My car should have the 4 clip trim ring but does anyone actually use them? Sounds like they won't stay on and I should just find the later set?

Restoration / fw wheels abd trim rings
« on: July 22, 2012, 10:11:30 PM »
My 69z has fw, Monte Carlo wheels. Will the earlier trim rings fit this wheel? Looking for what is supposed to be on it and would like to run the trim rings until I find the right yh wheel

Originality / Radiator painting
« on: July 14, 2012, 03:13:29 PM »
It looks like my radiator probably needs a core. Normally they come back are look like they are dipped in something nasty!  Any special paint others have used or just plan on using the same on the radiator as what will be the same gloss under the hood?

Mild Modifications / shocks
« on: July 13, 2012, 12:55:54 AM »
I am going to have to change my front springs in my 69 Z and wondered if I should change the shocks. Car has mr gasket super drag shocks on the front and monro matics on the back.  Seen kyb and blistens that people liked, along with edelbrocks but jegs doesnt seem to have edlebrocks.
I wont do anything other than a little spirited driving, no racing.  Only person who drove my car was the original owner so the shocks on it have been there a while. I havent drove it enough to know if what I have are any good either

« on: July 07, 2012, 03:40:02 AM »
While cleaning my recent purchase, I found the tag still around the coil spring.
It was really  nice. I was wondering, should I take it off and put it in a scrapebook?

Restoration / keeping gas tank and brake lines nice
« on: July 01, 2012, 04:01:00 PM »
 Buddy of mine said he used a low sheen clear on his tank and lines to keep them from trying to corrode. I am getting a new gas tank and was curious if anyone here has tried it

Decoding/Numbers / L78 engine stamps
« on: February 13, 2012, 03:53:35 PM »
Wasnt sure what to think about the I's instead of 1's.  Car is 12A, no x code.  Looks like about 3 weeks from engine to car build, didnt seem too bad.  Dont have the block casting date yet. I do have the trim tag
