UPS will not deal with a irregular shipment that is not on a stackable pallet, without adding big dollars to the price. Same issue with most freight companies that could even attempt it. The main issue is having to palletize it. I like Vons Idea of possibly having him get it on one of his next trips into houston. James (ko-lec-tor) suggested a plan that I think may work is if I can string together a few guys that live between houston and southern california and have them pass it from guy to guy until it is a drivable distance away from me to get. I think if Von is somewhat mechanically inclined he will be smart enough to remove the handle safely, then it will be easier to transport. So I think I may need a couple of New Mexico & Arizona guys, I know there is at least one CRG-er with a yellow Z/28 in new mexico (Hello Nick). Just have to kinda see who is out there on this one.

Please chime in if you have a trucker friend that makes that route, or have a sweet deal on freight, or live in the southern corridor of this venture! Grin

  Hey guys. I got the automatic pedal swapped in the '68 and now there is a problem: the pedal sits too high. It's an aftermarket piece from Rick's--surprise that an aftermarket part doesn't fit quite right. Everything swapped fine....the bushings and pins and master cylinder rod etc.. The new pedal is against the rubber bumper just as the stick pedal was, but it's about 3-4" too high from the floor and it's uncomfortable to cock my leg up and push it. Just another heads-up about aftermarket parts. If you can find an original part....FIND IT! It's worth the search and money.

Nice bike, Temecula is a nice place for a cruise. You never know what you may find at a swap meet, at least a few hundred venders. The car swap meets are bigger.

  I can't comment on the correctness of this stamping but I wanted to say you can have a block decked and still retain the stampings providing the decking process doesn't take too much off vs. the depth of the stamp.Most original stampings will have a very-very slight ridge along the characters edge from the metal displacement of the imprint force. Any decking, providing it doesn't take the stamping totally off, will usually even out the slightly raised edge (as this photo looks) depending on the deck cut depth.

Mike

Look closely at the edges of the stamp, and you get the suggestion the feed lines actually roll downward into the lines of the stamp - to me, that indicates the stamping happened after the decking took place. The stamps should be sharp faced, which tends to not deform the material as much as standard character stamps do. Still, not saying this is definitively the case here, it only suggests it. If the block was decked only a few thousands, the stampings might survive intact, but in most cases it will lighten it up considerably (if not completely lift it).
