General Discussion / Re: 140 off road cam first gen

I just was out tuning the new cam.  Small solid roller from Howards.  I had 14 inches of vacuum and acts real responsive.  I have not driven it yet.  Has a nice sound to it also.  My engine builder is pretty much anti anything other than a roller cam anymore after seeing a lot of problems.

Interesting to read that.  That was before my car was restored.  After the engine was rebuilt, I could only get 4.5 inches of vacuum out of that cam.  I took it out.   I am not sure why but I did everything I could check and x33rs helped me quite a bit on tuning it. Sounded like a drag car but it was not much fun going to a car show and backing into a spot.

I happened to catch the red white and blue trio sell.  I am thinking it was 200 for the 67 and 69 and 150 for the 68?  Crazy.

I ordered a "rebuilt" pump for my Z from a large vendor.  It got here and the logo was wrong and the weep holes.  No signs of corrosion.  I sent it back and they called me irate that I would say it was a reproduction.  He said I have 6 more of these in stock what date do you need.  He called back all of them had the same date.... So at some time, someone was restamping reproduction pumps with z part number. This was like 4 years ago

I agree with Joe.  All we run on tractors are Baldwin or Wix (NAPA) on the ones that are not Deere. Deere dealer is close so we use them on most of the green ones.

Restoration / Re: New disc needed for Hays Borg and Beck clutch

I have a 2014 ZL1 engine and 6 speed.  It has a LUK clutch in it from the factory. 

I think the guy on FB was hoping someone gave him a lawyers name.  Several came up with the same guy. 
I agree these guys are not doing much homework

Saw a guy on FB today asking what he should do after he has bought what was advertised as a L89 and not he found the block is restamped and I believe it had a fake protecto plate.  Dealer sold it to him.  Had to be expensive mistake. 

Vince I was just thinking about your old car last week.  I have not ran across it anymore.  I would have gave it a good home but just didnt work out.

Its one of the few I have seen with trim rings on the dog dish hub caps also

Neat car

It did not have the factory transmission which to me isnt as big as the engine but I did have a problem with the floors being replaced and no drain holes.  wonder what other sheet metal had been replaced?
It really needed the springs changed and I believe the wheels were repops.  Not major things but you hate to get a car that looks that nice on the outside and have to start changing stuff

I had a new 84 Trans am with the HO motor and 5 speed.  That thing would not get out of its own way.  Dark blue with the silver aero package.  Looked good but that was about it lol. 
For those of you that swapped motors, what did you do with the computer just get rid of it?

126,000 and it looked like someone in house bought it.  That would be 8%, phone bidder was 10%.  They got 11% for online but pretty sure it was not online
