Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Headers
« Last post by 70L34 on Today at 03:26:00 AM »
Jon, there is a big 'Headers by Ed' tag welded to the headers so I did a little searching around once I bought them. I was happy to see they looked almost identical to the Headers in the ad you posted. I got them exactly like you see them so they must have been NOS when they were coated.

Those are some beauties, Tony. Thanks for posting.

Did you know what they were when you bought them? Where they NOS before you had them coated? They're like brand new.

I ended up stumbling across a set of these Z/28 'Headers by Ed' and the workmanship is really, really nice:



Yes, sometimes you'll see some strange and/or funny tubing bends on headers that are trying to have
equal length. I can't think of too many crazier looking bends than on the Stingray headers shown below
in a June '68 ad by Headers by Ed (Racing Exhaust Specialties). Note the Douglass style upper flanges.





This 1969 ad shows Z-28 street headers. Here it looks like the Douglass style upper flanges have been
replaced with the early style Hooker Header flange but with a circular notch cut-out for the temp sender.
These guys look like they made very good headers. (Jon Mello Collection)

General Discussion / Re: Different size 1969 Camaro Headrest
« Last post by sdkar on Today at 01:36:53 AM »
Well, it is definitely for a 69 GM model as it has the date code for that model year.  It looks exactly like a 69 Camaro headrest, but I have four other headrests that are definitely for 69 Camaro, and this one is smaller than all of them bu 3/4".  My four Camaro headrests all have a date code of April 1969, and the smaller one is December 1968.  I wonder if anyone else can compare similarly dated headrests and confirm that the earlier ones were smaller than the later ones.  If it is from no other car, than it has to be Camaro, and it's smaller than later Camaros.  There can't really be any other explanation.

I have seen that car somewhere before. Recognized the air cleaner seal and polished valve covers.
Jerry certified it but question is as what??

I recognize that GREEN Potter-Rayfield Machine!
We use one at work to rewind DC motors for the Navy Submarine Fleet, Never seen the conveyor, we depend on the skill of the trade person. Takes a lot of practice and much more un-friendly dacron-glass tapes.
Yes our OSHA reps HATE this machine!

Thanks for posting

If they still made the machine, it would be covered in warning labels...

No kidding about the fingers! That machine really moves! Really neat video though to see how it was originally done.
