rs, how much of the hook threads stick out when the nut is down tight ? now im wondering if mine is right or not. oh well, i will find out when i bolt a spare down.

well i bought my car from the 2nd owner in `96 (he got it in `70 for a grad present) and i never had a spare mounted in the car yet but will asap. i have a full spare set of YH wheels and will make sure the hook is long enough. i hope it is right or i will be scrounging the junkyards for one. what year Z ?

check your hold down nut too Gary, see if it was plated like mine. the more i look at the pic of my J hook it looks like maybe it was phosphate plated maybe ?

ok, i resized a few pics Tim, also send you a pm. im not sure if the J hook was ever plated or had a finish. the bolt was for sure, shiny om back side but worn and rusted off the front side

i will try to get a pic of it tonight, i don`t have a spare bolted down and it is still original finish. will post info as soon as i can for you.

Tim, Roy, that would be all the more reason to keep the service going, every 50.00 back to the organization is 50.00 more in the kitty. there must be a few people that are still waiting for their info. Roy must have been the one and only person doing all this research if it all of a sudden stops ? Thank you Roy for all you did for this group and for the corvette owners too.

so it seems to me they threaten law suits because somebody speaks their mind ? won`t correct a judging guide that has been wrong for a decade ? then close down the documentation service that makes them money ? it sure does seem like some big ego`s clashing and not playing nice. kind of like school yard bullies. i guess charging 50.00 just to see where a car was sold new they maybe should keep it going. lets see, 200,000 plus camaros, now add how ever many nova`s and chevelles that adds up to alot of coin. interesting to see where this goes. great read by the way, thanks for posting the link.

i looked in Jerry`s 4th edition book and he has 2 RS z`s pictured and neither one has the RS emblem in the grill. not saying it`s wrong to have the emblem but looks like it was added IMO.

thanks for the info guys and the pic Gary, i found a perfect size thick rubber washer then put a thin metal washer on and the fit is nice, no slop. i will post a pic later in the week. i got the carb on, the repo vacuum line kit on, just need to do the repo battery cables and the cooling hoses. rad and heater hoses with repo tower clamps. should be done by wednesday night  Smiley
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / carb linkage to carb hookup on: June 02, 2014, 05:47:12 PM
i got my carb installed on my dz but was wondering what hole the linkage went through. i have never had the original carb on the car yet, just an out of the box 750cfm auto parts store carb. i searched  but could not find a good close up pic of the proper hole to locate it into. aslo wondering if the is a nylon washer and what goes into the linkage hole to hold the rod to the linkage. thanks in advance for any info. oh, will post some pics when it is done, had Jerry M restore it a few months back.

i wish i had some spare cash, would be nice to pull my numbers matching motor and put the one for sale in mine. save some miles on it and could have a lot more fun knowing i would`nt be hurting my numbers matching parts if anything were to happen

for now i plan on leaving the chrome, it preserved it well over the last 35-40 years
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Startin from Scratch-68 RS/SS 396 restoration on: May 18, 2014, 02:34:18 PM
it`s nice to see it will be restored rather than meet it`s fate with the crusher
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Now that you know what dealer originally sold your car.... on: May 16, 2014, 11:23:33 PM
