Boy, I'm sorry I started THAT!

Sorry Buddy, No slam on you intended, but it was informative and all is good. Thank you for getting us thinking.

Love my "fire wrench" (torch), but soaking in vinegar (gallon jug), does wonders and is cheap. I have posted before that supposedly best penetrating oil is a 50/50 mix of acetone and trans fluid.

If his 302 was .30 over, it would be a 307!
it would be .030 and at .060 over it would come up to 310.55 or 311 cu. .030 would only be 306 cu. .040=307 Sorry to get so precise there Buddy.

Were all 1969  x33 cars Z28's. My friend has a x33 he said it is a z28 that was ordered with a 307 4speed with 12 rear end. I have never heard of this I thought all z28's were 302
Rest assured, all X33 cars are Z28s and had only one drivetrain-302 4spd-12bolt rear. Generally the 12 bolts were 3.73 or 4.10. trans could be close or wide ratio. Look in the site under 1969 and it spells it all out. http://www.camaros.org/diffs69.shtml

How about I jump in on this bandwagon.....

I believe you live in Sonoma?  I live in Petaluma and work in Napa so I pass your way twice a day.  I would be happy to pull the carb off my '69 Z/28 (which runs superb) and bring it over to your place for a quick experiment.  It's an OEM Holley replacement carb that worked absolutely perfect right out of the box.

Any day after work is fine with me - I typically get off at 3PM.  FYI - Won't be available this Friday or the weekend since I'll be pit crewing at the Vintage races at Sears Point.

Let me know if I can be of help....  Charlie


We have a great bunch of guys, don't we? That is what makes us special, here. We really have a desire to see us all exceed and get our cars done. I am proud to be affiliated with such a great group. God bless! ...and a personal thanks Charlie on behalf of all and good luck at the races. B.

Resurecting this old post. NOTE this is an old post. I am responding with new information and questions about seller and legitamacy of what is stated.

This car has just been made available again: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-Z28-1969-chevrolet-camaro-z-28-numbers-matching-dz-302-/331332693948?forcerrptr=true&hash=item4d24f7afbc&item=331332693948&pt=US_Cars_Trucks#ht_2389wt_1312


Is this car legit now or still a scam? Everything looked ok about the ad, the car and seller. I then decided to see if any information was on our site regarding the missing trans. I put in the VIN under the search and this post came up.

Danny;
Whoa! You start into that bottom end you are opening another can of worms here.
Just my opinion but if it ain't broke why fix it? Is something leaking?
I couldn't find a good new/original high pressure oil-pump. So It required a new pump/pick-up and so on.
Just say'n!











X2 and never, never use a high volume pump.

24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 SS 350 intake manifold on: September 23, 2014, 09:51:17 PM
I have an intake from a 1966 327.  Part number 3905393.  I am not that interested in a correctly numbered intake at this point.  The one I have looks identical to the 3919803.  Would it work/perform okay? 
As long as it is the same configuration, meaning same carb holes size, it should work fine and is essentially the same as the noted correct intake. It may be a 1966 date, but it's application is for a 67 327 and 350 for Q-jet. If it is, in fact, a 66 intake, it would be for a Carter AFB, so make sure the secondary holes are larger as a Q-jet would be.
The casting says it is 67 Q-jet and the Q-jet was introduced in 1967.

"Can anyone recomend a good well known intake gasket set.?"

I like Fel-Pro (the blue one) GM also. I may even have a vintage GM set from BITD...will have to dig.

"But does the intake need to be resufaced a couple thousandths? Will that change the angle of the "seating" area's. Or should I just scotchbrite pad/steel wool it? ... Danny "

Not even sure if you are asking about the mating surfaces or overall appearance. Personally, I would not even clean the exposed area of intake unless it means raking off some crumbly stuff down in crevices, which may not exist now if you used as much carb spray as you claim. Careful with that spray! An errant spark off the dizzy or backfire and you will be roasting hot dogs and calling the Fire Dept. and Insurance adjuster. VERY FLAMABLE!


Let's keep it simple Danny. You want to have a flat true surface were the intake mates to the head. Lay a straight edge across the length after cleaning off gasket etc...
You could use a feeler like .003 and see if it goes between intake and straight edge. or you can just hold the intake at an angle and see if you can see daylight between S-edge and intake surface.
If warpage detected, then a flat medium coarse file, longer the better can be used lengthwise to intake surface to true up surface. In absense of a file or in addition, use a scrap 2x4 block and coarse paper, like 180 grit. May take some elbow grease, so take your time and take some Advil.

It really looks odd.  It makes me wonder what else is wrong with the car.

Jim
That vin should be 12A or 12B. Probably too early for the cowl hood. It also has no tach,console, or gauges. I can,t remember when the tach became a requirement.

Jim69: This is why I (we) try and get the details right in my (our) restoration, so someone does not say what you did and wonder what else is wrong or even if it is what is claimed. I do not want someone in the know to question the authenticity.

Kelley: With VIN Kurt provided, it should be a 12C, I believe. Tach was not required until way later in production and, yes, too early for ZL2, IMO. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=6281.0  some other posts are useful if you search on here.

Did originals have the through holes for the screws (like the ones Darrell pictured) or were there studs?

I think the holes are correct with screws, not absolutey sure. They are factory correct covers. Two would indicate stereo, I believe. If only one, it would be U69 RH side only.

Outstanding and neat story Scott. Have all known 69 P-car Trim Tags been compared? I would think the body numbers would be sequential being ordered at the same time.

We are still talking about distributors right?
I think we are moving on to a subject I really have expertise in...finally!
