I have confirmed that the line on balancer at 0 on timing tab is tdc.  I think there are two things going on.  The distributor lost the bushing on the mechanical advance and had way too weak springs and that combo gave way too much advance way too early.  I fixed that and got the initial to 10, but I had to really bring up the idle.  Now I feel its something in the carb.  Almost acts lean.  Some research makes it sound like the power valve.

I have one for a '69 Camaro and it looks like new. Also have other paperwork from the same dealer.

Last fall I saw an original Gutenberg bible, 558 years old. Probably wasn't always well stored but still looked pretty good. Kept dry and indoors, paper does just fine.

The yellowing comes more from UV light or contact with other oxidizers, between carpet and underlayment is not anywhere close to as archival as a folder out of the sun.
Particularly acids either in the carpet or from rust etc?
I have a build sheet which was so black from the asphalt underlayment it was not legible, I used a 9x13 pyrex and fast lacquer thinner laying it on papertowels and puring the laquer thinner through the sheet, it is nearly back to original coloring and perfectly legible.

I love Black over Blue Guts...
Thats only the 2nd Black over Blue 69 Z28 I have seen, the other was a late oct or early nov 1969 built car with a 6500 redline tach and wrong engine. 

Great Car!

Steve, you remember this thread? It dealt with different deck lid bumpers with pictures.

This I always found interesting that the 69 had such a different trunk lid bumper compared to the 67 & 68. This is one of the originals off the car and quick story. We knew the left side deck lid bumper was missing when the car was first looked at way back when. Not too long ago we were looking at the car and the trunk mat and in the crevice of the left side of the trunk the owner/friend while I'm standing beside him says can you believe this and picks up an original trunk lid bumper. What was interesting was the hole in the lid where it goes seemed to indicate if there was one there at one time it was not for too long. We believe possibly it was put in but not correctly, fell in the trunk corner crevice, and been there since the car was built. Just one of those things you find interesting.





Different trunk lid bumper for 67 68 ? My late 67 has the same type.
Originals I have looked at were a thicker and more squared off where the outside diameter met the face. Here is an example from a 68Z and our 68 was the same. Just my observation over the years between different years.

Chick,

You can learn a lot going through Legends Judging... I had seen the ribbed hose in several pictures of low mileage original cars. If you use the still available hose from GM wipe off the inkjet part numbers first. No inkjet printers in 1969. I found one at http://www.newyorkrestomod.com/default.asp but I don't see it on their website now.

The square cut clamps ends are made differently now and have rounded ends, I have heard a small grinder can change that. The one in the picture looks like it was painted Black as there is a small section flaked off.

I wonder what finish would be on a NOS fuel Y block?

Mike
 
I think most here Mike know about the correct squared off spring clamps that also applies to the gas line clamps that are a kind of olive green color. NCRS is where I first heard of changing the repro's that are round to squared off years ago but they are still catchable IMO since the ears become too short. The clamp in my opinion was not painted black but has a small section that is rusting causing a type of flaking. Looking at this car I'm confident the carb was never off the car and is quite a specimen for reviews.

Hmph..learn something new every day! (or remembering) Even went out and checked the Anglia because of second guessing myself...this one built and ran on the dyno by the speed shop (Griff). No vacuum advance on the current MSD, or the Unilites I ran. Certainly prevents any future arguments at the local cruise in's ! LOL

JDV:
There is a dial on the back starting at 0,use as you would a normal light. Occasionally I do compare readings. These may have come about prior to markings being engraved on the performance balancers, alternative to timing tape or measuring/marking. Another toy in the box to help read timing advance.....all procedures still apply.
I have an old Craftsman ,some higher dollar ones floating around my father's garage, what I've seen, they perform the same.
