ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz

 Cheesy


    LOL....sounds like my "stump puller" 97 F250 HD could give it a run for the money!

No heresy Cheesy

" a rose by any other name is still a rose"  Big block, small block ,name the cube. As long as it's a bowtie. Dollar for dollar still the best mule you can build for the job.

Tails from the strip: Ran the Anglia at Pinks when it was at Norwalk a few years ago , guy in a early 426 Dodge told me great car ,could have used a "Hemi"  in a sarcastic tone(very pretty car the Dodge)

Well ,he got me outa the hole(no 4.10's in it at the time) ,caught him at the 1/8th , we ran hard to the beams but pulled him by a fender . That Dart headed ,Oliver rod ,JE 14.75:1 splayed mained SBC was stroking ! ( no throttle stop) Very sweet sound. Ran into him in NY(Dad did) runnin the mouth a bit. 1/8 mile ,steeper gear in the rear ,car was hitting hard!
Declined a little fun run$$

( Gotta imagine "Shut Down" playing)


Gary---engines apart ,I'll shoot you some pics this weekend and a PM, just let me know what's fair.

I have a 71 low compression 402 (date matched heads/block) I cant give away up here. Maybe a regional thing , but  pretty unpopular engine on the North Coast ? Although a 396... 2 camps tend to be your high r  small blocks , or 454+ cubes, "427"s tend to be stroked 400's up to 454's(with some issues)

302's have a unique, wonderful sound throughout the RPM range ,they just do. But....they are not real traffic friendly, they were purpose built ( Kurt S.)

My 400 (sbc) backed by a turbo 350 and 4.88's pulled the wheels ,ran consistent 12.5's (fast for a street car in the day)and behaved well in traffic. Did I mention shift point was 7800? Never broke with that set up. Although looking back, geared to steep, was a better 1/8th mile car.

Yes the 302 is going back in the Z, ready on the stand.

Dollar for dollar, cant go wrong with a crate 383. but...

IF it is a Z ,it needs a 302 (smiles) They define each other.

Actually for the proper convertor(stall speed) you get with somebody like Transmission Specialties, answer their questions ,and they will build you what you need ,good price ,warranty ,and if you do race it ,you can send it back for inspections (for a fee). Very stout unit. They stand behind their product.

I thank all of you gentlemen for your assistance, it appears that I have YH wheels on the back and FW on the front. I sanded where the original stripe should be between the trunk lid and rear window and do not find evidence of an original stripe. I don't know what I have, maybe a SS Camaro 350?  In any case, someone went to great lengths to make it a Z. I think I will take Williams advice and build a hot rod....any input on a crate motor that would be most desirable in the build?

Go ahead and give a little more detail for your application: street/strip, cruising only ,daily driver ? do you want to retain drive line you have in it? Personally I'm a fan of bigger cube small blocks, I ran a 400 in the Z for years ,ported and polished 2.02's, high rise intake, cam card at home, but I can give you the specs later. Stump puller at the bottom end ,screamed at top. 4.88's were to steep for the street. With the 350 trans, 3.73's would have been the better street/strip set up. Block did duty in a race only Chevelle, then I bought it ,now it's in our Anglia ,real mule. Dollar for dollar I think you cant go wrong with a 383 crate...match your converter to the cam. I'm sure many opinions on this.

3:07 would have to be a bit of a slug behind a 302, even with a steeper 1st...have to be a "granny" gear.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 BALDWIN MOTION CAMARO VIDEO on: March 24, 2015, 04:38:21 PM
Loved it , I can imagine the sweet sound...
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ULTRA rare ebay auction for 69 z28.... on: March 24, 2015, 10:18:37 AM
If I'm searching for Z28 parts..  all is does is PEEVE me to have to wade thru all the NON-Z28 ads with Z28 in the listing... No way would I buy anything from people who do that....  Yes, they get exposure, but it's BAD exposure IMO... and makes me think they think lying in selling is OK...

agree 100%

well..car's certainly not a vette ,lol. Just what's on my car?  My eyes are going too, up there with reading glasses on trying to catch certain light reflections to see the numbers. But for sure ,only stamped on one side. Actually not that big of a deal to me as I already wrote them off long ago ,but I am curious.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: TRICO Wiper Blade Design Changeover in 1969 on: March 23, 2015, 06:03:43 AM
Always assumed these were not original to the car until reading over the thread. Like Gary, my Dad sprayed the wipers ,but more for looks (Ashgold likes black highlights IMO) Going back to 76.

Car was never in the snow or rain(since 76 for sure) ,I've never seen the wipers move. Story goes never prior. I'll check for part numbers this week. Little details like this interests me.

yes Cheesy    Waiting for a set of line bending pliers ( Eastwood ) to correct.  Enjoying the break in the weather outside in the yard this weekend.
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z Harmonic Balancer or not ? on: March 21, 2015, 01:00:07 PM
like on suggested link, notice my timing mark in relation to bolt holes...inline like yours.   67/68....lot more 69's built, just sayin Wink


other applications ,couldn't tell you ,sure it's somewhere on the site.  KEEP in mind ,if you plan to buy/use it ,have it examined. Old worn balancers and high RPM's don't mix.
