General Discussion / car that lost its barn!
« on: June 19, 2014, 03:10:52 PM »
I was on the local volunteer fire dept years ago and a barn fire happened and a 66 Corvette convertible was pushed out and saved from damage. Eventually the owner moved it to another guys where it was along a state road and everyone stopped to look. It wasn't for sale. It was blue, big block, 4 speed,  Drivetrain gone. I can't remember how much interior was in it. Might have been 6-8 years ago.  I now farm behind where the barn was and last 3 years its been parked there.  Here's a sad site in head high weeds.

This might be the first link of a car I have put on here. looked like an original paint z with documents. Thought someone might be interested. I have seen this place have ads before like they sell your car for you. Always wondered how that works and why pay someone to list your car on ebay!

General Discussion / Helicopter crashed in our field
« on: April 25, 2014, 01:39:43 PM »
Yesterday 2 guys crash landed a kit built helicopter in one of our fields. It was corn stalks and burnt about 10 acres. Wrong fire department was called and they didn't bring a truck to drive in the field so fire had a good start.
The guys are going to be fine after a neighbor pulled them away from wreckage.
Helicopter was small enough it fit on a rollback. Wasn't much left. It must have been an aluminum block because it melted! You can see valves in one picture

Originality / 40669 fuel pump

Anyone have a picture of an original z fuel pump? I bought this supposedly rebuilt one and it has 2 holes in each place where my replacement has a single hole. On the rebuilt one , these are more like indentions. The hole doesn't go anywhere. I thought these holes leaked gas if pump went bad

Trying to figure out if this is a zinc bolt or phosphated?
Mine appears to be a L5 on head and dark. Maybe zinc is gone??

Restoration / Muncie cleaning
« on: March 19, 2014, 01:19:53 AM »
Started cleaning gunk off my transmission today. Main case is pretty nice but the tail shaft has a different look to it. I was just going to clean it but I do have some walnut hulls I could run thru the blaster. What have you seen done that works and maybe what I have is normal? Front was covered in oil

Check out the writing on the side of the tire.
Same car, should the driveshaft be this crooked? Never noticed before

Originality / shock mount bolt
« on: February 26, 2014, 03:27:03 PM »
When traction bars were put on my car, original bolts were removed. I have a set of z shocks, part number 3192851. In the picture the bolt is not the same as what is sold as the rear shock mount bolt. Bolt on left is a repop, middle is original. Shock shows welded in stud and it does not have the solid metal collar like the bolts. Jerry's book picture matches my shock.  What is the deal with these bolts. Were they used on replacement shocks?
