Remembering reading a few years back on the pros of coatings, never did any though. Special process ?

Do a little searching on the site, there are some good threads on proper finish ( % gloss) and were to mask off to get it correct. Seems like it was a hot topic a few months ago. Assuming RS package ?

We're all learning, really cool when you learn something new about your car that separates it from the rest of the pack Smiley

Just don't gob it on.

You'll also want a small dab in the corners where the ones from the sides (on the heads) meet the front/rear ones on the block.

yea,listen to Cook.

 The Quick Sticks laid down on the heads with cut outs for the push rods and referenced each cylinder with both valves closed. I tried looking them up, may not make them anymore. Angry

TDC and run through the valve order like any other solid cam ( #1 E I should be closed and sloppy rocker arms ) Quick search will give you the order, than rotate 180 degrees. I've used Mac Quick sticks for years ( Google them)

Set at .016 ( manufactures recommendation I'm assuming) little drag on the feeler gauge, that will get you fired up for break in, check again after the cam broken in ( follow procedure ,important) you will be fine.

The procedure listed in here for the 30-30 is great, same one we use on the race motor running a hydo roller,yep,  it's profile requires a little slop in the valve train per the engine builder.


Your running nothing radical, modern profile, traditional procedure.

That was the first owner's exact statement Smiley " Ordered it a Plain Jane sleeper"

As stated before 68 Big Block cars with black tail panels stripe delete cars. I talked to both original owner's who special order the cars without stripe's.  One owner worked for Chevrolet in 1968 stilled owned the car  when I saw the car both had - where the paint code on trim plate. Other car I own the car since 1981 has -1 where the paint code is on the trim tag.  Did title search in my state & got MSO & original Dealer invoice plus all owner's names talked to original he stated to the dealer if it came with a stripe he would not take the car. Other previous owners stated car had no stripe. Further more If you will look at the trim plate section in this group it talks about. It show - being used on trim plate for stripe delete car as they were considered special order cars Do not no about z28's. It is shame that other people have shown you to this link on trim tags but yet you fail to look! Sorry for the long message but if I was not 100% sure what I was talking about I would keep my mouth shut . I have nothing to gain because I hope to never sell my car.     


I've read the link several times ,and I'm not debating you. Curious myself. And it means little to me seeing as I just had the car re-shot, with stripes, with quite a bit of research involved to replicate the not so perfect factory finish. Just putting out what I know as history on this Z. I have been fortunate enough to have grown up with the car,then taking ownership in 89. It's never left a 10 mile square area other than initial delivery. Pretty well known being the only Ash Gold one around. I've ran into guys who rode in it when they were young, who did work on it and was told the history many times by different sources over the years, at shows, with nothing to gain. Including the original owner, who called me.

I would think some of the info on this site comes from cars like these, and I like to share as I've drawn so much out of it.

No - on the trim tag of my Norwood built Z. (GG) Original owner verified  he ordered the car stripe delete , spoke with the man about 20 years ago who shot the stripes in 69-70. The 2nd owner had it done when he ordered the cowl hood through Milad Chevrolet.
101  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heavy undercoating was it factory or dealer applied? on: June 04, 2014, 07:58:51 PM
uggg....don't want to be reminded, had many hours removing that gunk from underneath. The front wheel tubs were the worst, set up like concrete underneath. If Al paid $35 to have it done, he got his money's worth Cheesy

I believe the factory shot under the rear wheel wells and half (or so) the fronts. Not positive.

Your right Gary, road signs and undercoating "fixed" many a beaters Ohio floor.

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

Think your memory is ok !
103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Benchtest - 67 RS headlight motor on: June 02, 2014, 07:38:44 PM
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.
