General Discussion / Re: MCACN
« Last post by firstgenaddict on Today at 05:14:49 AM »
I have been buried alive, although this year I made the Camaro Nationals, the NCRS nationals, NCRS Ohio Regionals and NCRS chapter meet in Atlanta. Along with Charlotte Speedway spring and fall - damn I thought I had been stuck at home ALL YEAR! 
 
I have been painting a Hugger Orange COPO, getting ready for a Fathom Green 69 Z for paint, and correcting some paint issues on a LT1 Corvette as well as finishing the 73 RS LT Z28 PLUS steadily correcting the last 1-2% I can get out of my LT1 so I can get my DUNTOV award.

I will be there - hope to see everyone I can but mostly the cars... Warren's survivor JL8! 
Warrens car sounds like the fan favorite. It seems like he had been collecting parts for the cross ram for years. Hopefully someone can post multiple pics of it.
Maybe Warren can start a thread just for that car with the history.

Good to see you chime in James, thought you were buried in your shop... :)

Maintenance / Re: 186 heads - rocker arm studs
« Last post by z28z11 on Today at 02:36:19 AM »
I said .002", obviously I meant .003" (lol). These two are about 49 years old, used to have blue paint on the bottom of the studs denoting the oversize shanks. Trick to install them was to freeze them, heat the boss with a torch, drive into place using a lock nut to protect the threads. You had to be quick - once they came to temp, they were in for a good while. Danged tough material, too - if you ever adjusted valves frequently, you knew that the lock nuts would wear a lot faster than the stud threads. Using two piece locking retainers was better over time than taking a chance of lock nuts backing off.

My heads are still originals, never hot tanked or disturbed (other than Erson springs, PC seals). I had the occasion to change a couple of damaged studs out on a '68 291 head on my Bel Air around '70, had these left over. Amazing how things can accumulate -

9419380. All small-blocks are the same.

Also used [2 pc] to secure the plastic fuel pedal support to the cowl and the clamp at the base of the steering column.
William are you referring to the plastic moulded rectangular piece just below the steering column?

Yep, He sure did. I just thought there might be something from the tag that I didn't understand.

I forgot that some of the pics are posted here http://www.camaros.org/assemblyprocess.shtml

Actually all of those pictures (or a different take) are posted there. :)
That's not just the exhaust system install, that's getting ready for body drop.
