Re: Old Pueblo: My 1969 Z10 (SS/RS) Camaro
The first part of my project will be dedicated to getting the car roadworthy. Once itís safe to take on the road, the plan is to build some upgrades to the garage, including a compressed air system, a blasting cabinet, and a powder coating booth and oven for re-finishing parts, and some overhead shelves for storing parts.
Getting the car safe to drive took about four months, and involved the following work:
- Flushed and replaced all fluids
- Rebuilt the carburetor
- Installed a power brake booster; replaced rear drums with a disc kit
- Plugged some leaks in the TH350
- Replaced starter
- Adjusted timing
What an amazing day it was to hear that 396 fire up for the first time. Took a few adjustments to get the timing down, but now it fires right up on the first stroke and lopes along at a nice, bumpy idle.
