316  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Z valve cover picture, open element air cleaner on: September 26, 2012, 10:02:52 AM
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.
Thanks

I have used the griots products and the bigger orbital and it does a nice job. On my acura it made it look like it was just painted. Shined up some of our tractors and semis too. alot of work but sure looks nice. No way to burn thru paint with it either

I need to correct my numbers, the 6312 was the one that made it sit too high not the 6320. The 6312 is the longest and highest load rate of the 3.

I had a friend tell me to soak the inside with wd-40 and tap them with a rubber mallet. Sounded crazy but it worked

I just went thru something similar. My car is a non rs z. Heartbeat city sent me coils for a small block non ac car. Which they recommended.  It sat like 3 inches too high. Google pozzi racing and he has a chart with moog numbers. I ordered new ones from summit and they were were here the next day. I used the 6308 set. Now it sits with the molding in the front wheel well about at the top of the tire.  Looks good. I believe the wrong set from hbc were 6320. I think 6312 is a spring that will  sit a half inch higher than the 6308

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.
324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 brake calipers on: September 07, 2012, 09:54:13 PM
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!
325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 brake calipers on: September 07, 2012, 08:03:58 PM
That's kind of what i wondered too
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 69 brake calipers on: September 07, 2012, 03:37:42 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?

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.
329  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!
330  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: springs on 69z on: August 27, 2012, 04:15:24 PM
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
