Great pictures.
Napa does have pistons and the guy said it was used for a while, maybe into the 80's

Thanks guys for all the info. I had a hose go bad too. Weird deal until we found no fluid coming out hose. I will check with napa. Sometimes they still have basic parts and i forget to check there. I think my bores were ok, just rusty pistons.

69 has one piston, earlier used 2. I was browsing the classic industries catalog and they have pistons. Not sure which one is right but its a start!

That's kind of what i wondered too

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?

I did some measuring and the springs hbc sells for a small block are not z springs! My car is almost 3 inches higher than it should be. I kid you not it looks like the engine is out. From what i have found, i need the moog part 6803. Of course i have a show in my home town town at our fair and i hope we get rain so i can leave it home. Really disgusted with hbc after they talked me out of an nos set they hadz and then sold me these. The set they have is 6312, and its not even the 2nd choice for a z

If that car didn't work out, i have seen some nice camaros on Ebay and i think on camaros.net in Florida recently.
323  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: springs on 69z on: August 27, 2012, 08:48:14 PM
My car had a yf tag on the spring we took off. What is really annoying, one side is 3/4 inch higher than the other!

Was looking at a chart in the classic industries book and they show the 6 cylinder coupe using the same coil  spring as a z. Might drop mine down a bit
325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / springs on 69z on: August 27, 2012, 01:34:00 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?
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: ebay unrestored z on: August 26, 2012, 11:19:31 PM
Noticed it has hood insulation and trunk mat. Weren't those only for deluxe interiors?

hope I got all  the link, it goes off today. After seeing a "survivor" with a replaced block, wrong heater hoses and several other suspectable things, I saw this car and it is unrestored but repainted and has picture of block on engine stand. Gosh whats left that hasnt been restored?? 
328  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z/28 metal vacuum line correct? on: August 20, 2012, 10:34:38 AM
is there any paint on this clip on a z? One I bought has orange on it but might be off a painted manifold
Thanks
329  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Picture of 69 z top of engine wanted on: August 14, 2012, 09:45:10 PM
Mine has tube and hose and pretty sure its the original hose. No clip. I did buy a used one and wondered why it has orange paint on it
330  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Picture of 69 z top of engine wanted on: August 13, 2012, 06:40:34 PM
Maybe I am not missing any parts!  that would be good.
Thanks Paul
