no not stock, this was actually a tuning tip per Holley to help smooth the idle with longer duration cams vs. opening the throttle plates more having to idle at  say 1200.

Thanks ,literally just came in, my buddy who shot the Z came over and we removed the front clip. He diagrams everything and utilizes letters to designate the fastener locations. So we just had the conversation what's needed. My hold down strap is in good shape. ( dimples and all)

anybody have an extra one in the bin?
also looking for hood hinge to fender bolts. Hinge to hood were still in the hood luckily (32 years)  I believe they are the same as the hinge to fender.  Dropping the front clip tomorrow so back to it. Black phosphating in the near future so they don't have to be pretty. Just sound. Remember when these things used to be laying in the dirt at the junkyard? Whoda thunk?

shoot me an email---thanks,steve

Complete engine intake to pan ? Why did you do the swap ? Mechanical issues?

no leaks over the winter with the 4 piston?

Perfect ! we're starting to tear back into the Z next week ,detailing sub frame and components over the winter. Will be giving you a call in the very near future on getting the dust shields out to you---steve
 I'll shoot you an email for a quote on a few other items. I already have your website in favorites ,perfect timing for a reminder to me Smiley

Mike. I posted Chick's link because those were his findings. I have always left the dogbones natural. It's obvious the nuts and shims were not painted due to the assembly process. I did not immediately notice the nuts appeared black in the photo.
For some strange reason I didn't see any pictures in the links. After rebooting my PC do I now see what you are talking about.
So the control arm, dogbone and mounted bushing's was painted as a whole unit. I can accept that. Were the end washers and bolts painted black too? My thinking is the washers and bolts were added during assembly and torqued down once the full weight was on the chassis (motor, options, etc...). Or were they installed lose on the dogbone ends and painted along with the rest?

Mike

Reviewing old posts
Plan on dropping the subframe in a few weeks for a nice winter project.....so what's the verdict on the end washers ?  Pg # 36 in Chick's build  the "unit" is gloss black. Ball joints natural. Final assembly fasteners painted ? Shims natural?  I hate replacing them because the car is still tight ,but the bushings show some dry rot ,so they are getting bagged and shelved.

I agree verbatim with Bullitt.

Has anyone told you to slow down and take a deep breather yet?

I have.

Only pour a quart or 2 through the valley and let it drain. Pumps tend to last..still running my Melling in the race engine, not going to tell you how old it is, but it was well in spec. so the engine builder asked really why change it ? Bad bearings are the culprit for low oil pressure in old Chevy's. Take a break from it. Mines off the lift right now and covered up in the corner, other priorities. mostly building an Engineer right now ! (son's in college) ,and keeping my daily's in tip top shape. Hang loose dude!

I agree with above....just pull the drain plug and pour the cheapest oil through the valley to flush out any remaining coolant. As long as you didn't turn the engine over you will be ok...everything is going to drain to the pan. Get rid of it. Did you pick up the Chevy rebuild book I recommended ? Figured somebody was gonna catch the coolant.

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.   Ok as long as your using a higher capacity pan with kickouts. If not you'll suck the sump dry at high R's.

Sort of remember it being black and cleaning it up to bare metal for a little detailing.
