Wow, just read thru your thread.  That's a bummer on your Camaro.  I wonder if the dealer knew or if did they took it on a trade and flipped without knowing a little something.

As far as a "Small Claim" in court.  Yeah you'll probably win but that's about it... in Florida anyway (maybe your state is diff but I'd doubt it, all states pretty much the same).

If you win a small claims case, You may be surprised to learn you don't automatically receive the money when you win a judgment. If the defendant doesn't voluntarily pay, you'll have to use additional legal procedures to collect. Unfortunately, it is easy to get so caught up in thinking about suing the person who did you wrong that you forget to think about how you'll collect. This mistake can compound your original loss by wasting your valuable time for the dubious satisfaction of hearing the judge say, "You win." 

If your lucky.. and I stress "REAL LUCKY"  collecting from a solvent (company able to satisfy its debt obligations when due) individual or businesses isn't usually a problem.  Why I say if your "REAL LUCKY".  Cause most business operate on a "Starved of cash" base.  They're able to hide things like $$ thru other methods of the business.

So when you win..which most likely you would a lien is filed against the dealer.  And if there are other liens then yours follows suit in order behind the others.  You then would only be paid if the business decides to close and liquidates all assets and they began paying off all loans and liens held against them.  If the cash from their liquidation is all absorbed before your turn to collect... well tuff  Sad   

Bankruptcy...No good also.   If a person or a business declares a straight bankruptcy and lists you as a creditor, your right to recover a small claims court judgment outside the bankruptcy is cut off, along with most other debts.  Your loss again  Sad

Not trying to rain on your day,  but I don't want to see someone blow more money to only win and never recover.   Telling you from experience.  I had work done by a business to an old house about 20 yrs ago.  Though my lawsuit was for only $1500 + $100 court cost ($1600 total) .. peanuts to you I'm sure.  I won, the Company never even sent someone to represent them against me.  I was all smiles, skipping all the way down the hall to sign the papers.  Then I ask "so where do I collect" ?  BOOM the learning curve !

So in a nut shell .... Save your hard earned cash and play with your Camaro.  A great project that you and your son can enjoy and always remember... that's priceless !

and thought I would wash wax finish up any tuneup issues that were left from the previous weekend.  So Im almost finished and I keep hearing a little chatter under the valve cover.  I pull the cover to adjust the valves and get to #7 intake and see what looks like a weak spring.  I pull off the keepers to discover this.





Luckily it didnt drop a valve because I would have been sick..  But got it replaced with a spare I had and everything is back to normal.  Not sure I like the wheels on the car..  Cragars are definitely the leading candidate at this point.







Also a pic of the tailpan after waxing.  I have to retract my first belief of them being semi or satin black.

Danny, Here in Ohio, we have a few car part stores (chain stores) that will 'loan' you tools like a balancer puller. You put down a deposit and get it back when tool is returned. Now, It might be hard to find someone at those stores that knows what a balancer or anything else on a car is that does not involve a laptop or a chip...but that is a different story.

I've been lucky, went through a bad spell a few years, stores got smart and hired in mostly retirees around here....guys who actually know what your talking about!
Summit is almost just as bad nowadays, keystrokes. The old Summit store and Supershops is were you talked over a counter concerning HP parts.

Autozones, Advance Auto, etc.. out here have free loaners for tools. Say you need a new timing cover seal, which you  should replace if doing what you are doing ,they'll loan the tool out...they are in business to sell parts. No specific key per say, proper size is what you need. Take your old one in to match up .


Sounds like life's treating you pretty good out there, good for you.


Also....threads are looking a little ruff ( crank pulley bolt holes) I'd chase them to clean them up some.

Borrow a puller. Don't some auto parts stores loan tools? I THINK what you are going to find is a damaged key, hope the keyways are OK. If it is use an oilstone to dress the burr, not a file. I'm fairly sure any sbc key is the same. Have a buddy that's a machinist? Everybody does.

Mmmm, steak!...better enjoy it now my friend. By the time I buy all the parts I need for my car, the only 'steak' I'll be getting is a Kentucky round steak (Bologna for the rest of ya'all).

It's funny you would start a thread on filler caps as I am in the middle of fabricating the filler tube and installing the cap I have. I bought this one from a place called Crafty B. They make mostly old school street rod stuff but they have a lot of racing filler caps as well.
