It appears Skips distributor hold down is painted?
Yes Bill, and a few intake bolts had remnants of silver paint on as they were not zinc as seen in one picture.

That's an interesting shift boot.
That's the correct shift boot. No longer made or reproduced.

General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro Over Heating issue

I'm just throwing this out there as it happened to me.  My car started running hotter than its regular norm and started dying at a stop and being really hard to restart.  It usually didn't restart until it sat and cooled down awhile.  It turned out that the heat riser valve in the passenger side exhaust manifold had frozen shut. 

My suggestion is that you throw the heat riser valve out in the snow and replace it with a "donut" in order to avoid the very problem you mention.  I got rid of mine a long time ago. Only thing I do to compensate is a few more seconds at idle after starting cold.

Heat riser valves you get today from anywhere are junk IMO and you are just asking for trouble if you install one.

I have had the problem with several big block restorations in the past and was the problem posted by 68z28 with the air pocket issue on both Camaros and Corvettes with big blocks and have successfully fixed the issue once by running the car without the thermostat and cap off for better flow, however on two accessions I literally had to raise the front end of the car 12" inches while purging the system so that the water could purge the air pocket in the water jackets and both times this procedure worked and for some reason have not had to raise the front of the car to purge small blocks that I have built. Good Luck!

It's a triple carbon copy, bought my first 69Z in '88 drove it my Jr. and Sr. high school years then parked it in my parents barn and finally after 25years had retrieved it before it disappeared , since almost everyone in the area who knew about it made my parents an offer to buy it. Hopefully great Father and Son projects for both of us!
My Son and I are just wrapping up a '68 SS convertible project and this site has saved us a lot of time and mistakes during the restoration . So have fun with your project!
