White 69 RS Z
« on: August 24, 2016, 09:09:46 PM »
I'm new to this site because I inherited a 1969 RS Z28 x33 code from my childhood friend who passed away 3 years ago. This site seems to have some very informative people. I'm in the middle of fleshing up the car down to the sub frame as it sat in his garage its whole life and only started and driven a few times a year since 1971 when he purchased the car used from a lady that didn't like the color "Dover White" and the high gear ratio 4.10. The aluminum has deteriorated on the intake, valve covers & transmission over the years and I've got her all disassembled ready for the refresh and the DZ302 mouse disassembled ready to fleshing her up.  I'm testing the picture upload feature as I know ill need it as the build progresses. hope this works, I have a lot of research and questions that I know can be answered here. Glade to be a member!

Hey Buck, sorry to hear about your friend. It sounds like he left you a great solid car. A RS 69 Z/28 is darn near the top of the heap here.

Welcome to the site. I would advise starting a new thread and just copy and paste what you put here. Then just ask away, we all like seeing many pics, and can help you every step of the way.

 ;)

Welcome to the site. Yes sorry to hear about your friend.  Nice car.

So the pics of the engine in the car are not the original 302

One thing, in your signature you mention 110 octane. You don't really need to run that high. You can probably blend that with pump gas. There is a high compression 406 that we run a blend in, net around 96 octane. And back in the old days we ran a 13.5 to 1 compression DZ 302 (aftermarket pistons and head work to get compression that high) that ran fine on 100 octane aviation gas.

I agree with Bryon...  3-4 gallons of unleaded 110 mixed with 10 gallons or more of 93 Oct unleaded will give you close to 100 octane (more than enough for most SHP engines)...

Hello and welcome Buck,

Sorry for your loss of what appeared to be a GREAT friendship you had.

Is the block original as well as the rear and trans?  With all those yrs sitting and the previous owner before your frd I would think so.

More pics welcome.

Close the headlights by hand. The car will look better. With the engine you show you probably will not have enough vac for them to work. I like Dover White too.

Thanks for the welcome guys! The DZ302 block is not the original, he replaced it after he got the car. He had the new DZ302 punched and the heads worked and had the block and crank blue printed and balanced by the local machine shop all the racers used back then. The cam is a Crane Cam. Specs are  Intake @ cam 362 @ Valve 543 / Lift: Exhaust @ cam 374 @ valve 561, rocker arm ratio 1.5 , compression is 12.5.1 , Holley 850 double pumper, primaries and secondary's are mechanical and open at the same time, not sure why he did that, The car ran great though. The ignition is a Holley Pro Strip Annihilator housed in the glove box, with an MSD crank trigger. The car is original except the engine and Trans, the rear end is the original 410 from the factory, he remove the console and cut the tunnel to accommodate the Borg Warner Super T10 and the Super Shifter that sits right next to the knee, he did a nice job. As for the fuel, my buddy keeps telling me to run a mixture of fuel also, the 110 at 10 bucks a gallon hurts, LoL. The console and some under hood parts were in the trunk when I retrieved it, the headlight doors were not, UGGG. All the original parts disappeared from his garage when he was in the hospital. Now I need to preserve those great memories. I have my work cut out for me. Below is the inspection picture I took 3 years ago before I started messing with it trying to get it to run right at 5280 elevation here in Colorado. Question, What form topic should I post under for the rebuild project? Thanks again for the welcome!

When he replaced the original 302, did he by chance save the original? or do you know what shop did the work? That block would be a valuable (and original) asset to add to a nice car.
