If my memory is right, the 2 wires are open close. The neg. or ground goes to the case.

Think your memory is ok !

Check the motor 1st, then work your way back.

If motor ok ,see if you have power (12 v) at the wires you plugged in to your motor.


There are 2 limit switches per side When fully open , or fully closed a small round "push button" is depressed thereby opening the circuit to your motor and stopping it

Under driver's side fender are 4 relays. 2 for the right,2 for the left.


If one side is working and not the other sounds like you are getting power TO the relays.
If your motor works on the bench test, see if you have power  to and from the limit switches.

Search around on the site ,I think somebody downloaded the 67 hideaway headlight wiring schematic/instructions.
Mines in my build book, and a buddy has it.

If you run in to a dead-end , reply, and I'll  scan and post it---steve

That's a good question. In the 67 Z road test article, the test car had white stripes.

Piece of mind is a wonderful thing Wink

Left hand on the steering wheel, camera in the right. That shot caught my eyes years ago.

1 lead from the motor to pos.        ( 12v supply, battery)
1 lead from motor to neg.

Should run continuous, either way. If it does not, motor is bad.

If ok, gets a little more confusing: limit switches, relays.  But not too confusing!  Can walk you through---steve

Thought about it after the post but I agree  Cheesy Sometimes I forget they had to keep the tests apples to apples---as It rolled off the line. Exhaust manifolds and small exhaust would choke any engine built to breathe. Jerry M's runs high 12's with headers (through full exhaust) ,4:88's and E 70's. My Dad ran 13.05's with the similar set up--poor traction. L60's did not help, and I don't know if they sprayed the tracks back then(in the 70's) When it did hook up,(small slicks) violent wheel hop without traction aid. All ET killers.

Really don't believe it was a priority back then , performance data #1. There were some details that did come up ( and matched what was done on mine ) so I'm pleased. Also matches 67 article/pics. Bit of time was put into "imperfection"  in small areas and Bob nailed it.  Lots of work  on my plate this summer, no way I'll be able to start re-assembly until fall/winter. Still 3 years ahead of my initial time set to "dig into it"

Interesting on their choice of rear gear, I believe in an article I read, Mr Stahl stated optimum would be 4:30  ,street/strip. A steeper 1st would be a must with 3:73's.A high 14/ low 15 sec Z just doesn't flow good off the tongue.




I always did, and still have a preference for 67's....love vent windows.


Any 69 Z road test articles out there ? Complete the trifecta. (spelling ?)

After reading John's post on the 67  Z road test ,it reminded me about the mag I've had for years.
