Originality / wire harness wrap
« on: June 23, 2015, 01:25:07 PM »
I have some of my plastic wrap off my harness near the starter, probably from headers. It looks like some kind of cloth wrap was wrapped right at the starter that is still there.  Has anyone seen this and was it used at the end to keep the vinyl from unwrapping?  If not, what was used to keep it from unwrapping?

Anyone going, one better than the other? Cars or parts for sale at the nationals?

Originality / wheel well molding bolt finish. any survivors?
« on: May 27, 2015, 02:26:34 PM »
I saw a car with plated bolts that held the front wheel moldings on. Anyone here have a survivor car with a shiney finish on these bolts? Surprised they had special bolts just for these but they did look nice

Originality / Original Goodyear wide tread question
« on: April 22, 2015, 01:15:54 PM »
I tried to buy a 1968 dated wide tread last night off eBay. It was nos but on a mustang rim. The rim may have been for a 68 Shelby . Little confusion on the rim size. Anyway, what concerned me from bidding anymore was the stamp saying vytacord on the sidewall. Does anyone have an original tire that could see what cord it has? I was thinking it should say nylon?

General Discussion / rebody Z made Hot Rod
« on: April 11, 2015, 02:01:49 PM »
Hot Rod had a write up on Barrett Jackson and listed some cars that sold. The green Pratt Z is in there and says an already nice car brought back. A forensic document examiner was used to confirm the Z28s paper trail. Writer must not understand Jerrys comments. Page 58 if you want to look. Just got it yesterday

Restoration / Which was done last, Cowl white or firewall blackout on Z
« on: February 24, 2015, 03:27:21 PM »
I am rounding up some info to get my car painted and found some confusing details. I searched and didn't find exactly an answer here or in assembly process.
I read the blacked out firewall was done last on a regular car. I thought a shield was eventually used to keep white cowl paint from going too far down the firewall. I believe I have seen pictures of firewalls with a lot of sloppy white on them. This makes me think the white was done after blackout.
When I was searching today, I read where the cowl was painted then the blackout. I am wondering does the white go down and overlap the black or does the black overlap the white?
Thanks guys. Maybe this will make it easier to find

General Discussion / Anyone done this?

As I was looking over the cars at Mecum today, I caught this out of the corner of my eye thinking that doesn't look right...

Restoration / exhaust manifold torque small block
« on: December 10, 2014, 08:14:20 PM »
I have searched and looked in assembly manual and not much luck. I did see center bolts 35 outside bolts 15. Is this without gaskets? With gaskets any different? I am using french locks and no gaskets.

Originality / plug wire heat shields on 69
« on: November 29, 2014, 07:41:14 PM »
These are stamped AAc on bracket and shield. I thought they were originals and look to have soot under the bracket. Does anyone have a set with this stamp?

Restoration / no exhaust gaskets?
« on: November 29, 2014, 01:23:29 PM »
In the process of finishing my motor and never realized the factory didn't use exhaust gaskets. Any problems with this and do you use any kind of sealant?

Friend of mine was curious if his old z is known. He didn't think he could come up with a VIN. It did have some odd stuff. Fathom green Z with a early 68 spoiler. Car had an endura bumper and fiber optics. It was reprinted white and flat black stripes. I think he had it in the mid 70s and was in columbus ohio. Might have had deluxe interior too. Was numbers matching at the time. I  thought with the options maybe someone had heard of it

Decoding/Numbers / Fuel pumps
« on: September 14, 2014, 06:38:21 PM »
I was wondering, do the numbers on ac fuel pumps such as 40669, mean it is just for a z, or do some of these pumps have different flow rates? I doubt if I find a 40669 but have seen correct appearing ac logo pumps and curious if they have different GPH ratings  if they take the same size fuel lines

Restoration / Motor mounts
« on: August 23, 2014, 03:01:36 AM »
I am not reusing my original non locking motor mounts. I bought a locking set and wondering if they are ok to use with the original frame mounts? I read on a different site that it sounded like all 69 mounts were locking but that's not true.
Thanks guys

General Discussion / custom striped Z I saw this weekend
« on: August 18, 2014, 02:13:07 PM »
Was at a show I went to Saturday. I thought the tag appeared real. 10-10 with dark blue interior. X33d80. Paint appeared to be old lacquer that was checked.

Originality / Door edge guards adell?
« on: July 24, 2014, 10:20:53 PM »
I had a friend give me a set of what he believed to be door edge guards off a camaro. He thought they were gm pieces. Stamped on them is Adell novi mi. Is this right?
