I really should not contribute as I am not sure this fan is original, but I believe it is as some stuff was in trunk(engine was gone when I got the car) 12B Nor X22. Here it is :
Hayes-Albion fan, Schwitzer clutch 10-16-68, also an extra Eaton unit FWIW.

Congrats Steve. Nice to be recognized for your good service.

Personally, I think it is a scam. I would not even bother to inquire since there is no price. But if you do go over to this guy's place, I will take that Big Block shifter bracket...I am sure it came off of his Z (sarcasm).

So I don't have a torch per se, only a little propane gas bottle torch. So how hot do I get the parts?
If you can put a wrench on the bolt (use glove) apply pressure with one hand while heating with other until it turns. This is one way. The other is get 'er cherry red and let it cool. I hope you are taking the shifter off the car to heat it. With out experience in heating parts, you risk catching the car on fire if part left on the car. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher near by and nothing flamable in the area. Garage near me scrapped cars for cash and some kid working there was draining gas tank by drilling bottom of tank with an electric drill. Burnt the place down.

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.

45  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.
