Bill’s Corner: Info for The North Texas Camaro Club
Well the Super Bowl is over and I hope you won enough $ to buy a 2010 Camaro.
Some NTC folks have ordered/received their 2010 Camaros: Huff, Rudy Martinez, David Caver, and David
Clark - anyone else? Let's see some of these at 2010 shows.
2010 Ft. Worth Rod & Custom Show NTC entries are:. Gary Dolezal, Chris Recker, Todd Recker, Tom
Beard, Bill Roy, Huff, Tad Hall, and David Caver. March 5,6,7. NoMad Dog and David Clark entered
individually, so some great NTC participation.
NTC 2010 - Kick Off meeting will be at the Rail Head in Ft. Worth in connection with the Ft. Worth Rod
& Custom Show, 11:00 am sharp Saturday March 6th, 2010. This is the North Texas Camaros March Ralley
Point, ya'll come on out.
Dues are Due for 2010, Deadline is 3/1/2010, Dues stay at $20-same as last year. See web site home page
for mailing info.
Autorama in Dallas is Feb. 19 - 21. Looks like NoMad Dog Dodson and Huff are showing, anyone else
showing or going?
Jerry Jackson made the top 3 on Saturday with the Barrett-Jackson fantasy car bidding. Congrats Jerry, we
may have you get into the appraisal business for the muscle cars. All in all the prices were off from the
highs 2-3 years ago when COPO's went for $400k and Hemi Cuda convert went for $1million. Some really
good buys on Tue/Wed/and Sun at B-J. At the same time as B-J, the Russo & Steele Auctions right down
the street from B-J, had major wind and rain on Thursday evening. It did not reopen until Sunday. See email links for car damage images.
Jerry Jackson is also already on the job for the Cruise for the Cure in 2010. Looks like he has managed to
lock down the 3rd street location we had last year. Thanks Jerry, we'll be there.
Here is a work in progress report from John Mc Alpin, anyone else have a write up, let me know.
Hello from Austin. I was hoping to finally meet everyone this month at the social. But I was unable
to get the car lined out well enough to travel those distances. I have come to grips that it will be quite some
time before I can afford to fix the rusty spots. And, I know that you folks would understand. Though I did
need to make it road worthy.
So far I have completely gone through the suspension, power brakes and power steering systems. By
the way, I really like the Global West front control arms. The extra caster makes a nice difference on how it
drives. I stayed with the standard disk/drum setup for now. We'll see later about better brakes if needed.
I have also gone through the cooling system. I snagged a stock looking Alumatech aluminum
radiator with twin fans and automatic transmission cooling ports. Well, it would have looked stock if I'd
painted it black. I just could make myself paint the aluminum. It is much cooler than the original radiator.
My biggest challenge was that I went with the big block sized radiator for the extra cooling.
I might-a should-a thought a bit more about this. See, neither a small block nor a big block upper
radiator hose works. On my old engine I had the thermostat housing neck extended about two inches so it'd
reach. It looked pretty wretched. I now have a spacer mid hose to extend the hose out to the radiator neck. I
wish I could find a single molded hose that would fit the bill without shenanigans. I have the Vintage Air A/
C in place. What a nice setup. This was my Christmas present last year. The only drawback is that the
cooling system did notice the condenser sitting in front of it. About 5 degrees or so. Not too bad. I also had
the 12 bolt gone through and a set of original ratio 3:31 gears put back in. Besides it being the right ratio for
the BS rear end, it is my favorite ratio. Good highway manners and decent acceleration. The only challenge
is that the pinion seal leaks a bit.

Bill’s Corner: Info for The North Texas Camaro Club
The bearings and seals were new when I had the gears setup and I have since taken it back to them
with another new seal. Still leaks <drat!>. I am not sure that it's the original yoke since it doesn't have the
seal shield part on it. When I look at the current seal installation it is not in quite all the way (not flush to the
housing). I wonder if the mechanic tore the shield off because he couldn't get the seal in all the way and it
was hitting the shield <shrug>. I have since purchased a GM pinion seal and was trying to decide what to do
next. I have never been into that sort of repair before. Sure I've pulled axles and replaced those seals and
bearings. But I am nervous dealing with the pinion torque and don't know how close the bearing is to the
seal. If I hammer more on the seal could it be hitting the bearing? Could that be why it is not in flush to the
housing? Any suggestions/instructions would be welcome.
My latest efforts have been an engine swap. The original engine was quite anemic, and when hot,
only run at 25 on the oil pressure gauge. At idle it was a scary 5 to 10. It never knocked or smoked, but it
was obviously very tired. The car was originally an automatic but had been swapped to a 4 speed. An odd
overdrive 4 speed out of an 87 truck. Even that couldn't perk up the stock engine <grin>. And I certainly
didn't want to drive up to the frozen north (DFW) with this engine. So in came a GM ZZ4 Fastburn 350
crate engine. I fretted quite a bit about the option of an LS series engine. But, decided to stay with a sort of
stock appearance. And, it should have been easier right?
It mostly was, except for the headers. See, the Fastburn aluminum heads have D-Port exhausts
similar to the late LT1 engines. Only they have elevated D-Ports. The center of the ports is above the bolt
holes for the headers. I bought quite a few exhaust gaskets trying to see what would work. I could not find
any combination that would mate properly without leaking. All the headers that I could find stated that they
would work on regular and D-Port heads. They must have meant the normal height D-Port heads. My
existing Hookers sure wouldn't work. Big gaps in places and they would have leaked like crazy. Not to
mention that they would have had obstructions and turbulence in the exhaust from them not mating up
properly. I was quite frustrated and about to throw in the towel and have some headers custom made <yikes!
>. Then I stumbled across a reference to some Edelbrock headers made for their E-Tec and Fastburn heads
with the elevated D-Ports. They were made for first gens and matched perfectly to the ports. These are the
only headers that I know of that would mate properly to these heads. Stainless steel, thick 3/8" flanges, and
(my favorite) non-leaking donut style collector gaskets. Sweet! Sure, I had to put them in my press and
nudge some clearance around my fast ration PS steering box. I hated doing that but, I don't think anyone can
see it unless they are looking for it.
I put my old Edelbrock carb back on it (not my favorite carb) and it fired right up. I mean, it literally
fired right up. It actually made me jump because I was expecting to have to do a bit of tinkering to get it
going. Very nice.
I wanted to go back with an automatic but, I also liked the overdrive. I had Monster Transmission
send me a 700R4. I had it built with the Stage 3 HD parts but, with the Stage 2 shift characteristics.
Naturally a conversion cross member was in order. I used Turbo 350 cooling lines that were very close. The
threads were correct and the routing was good. I only had to tweak-bend the last 6 inches or so of the lines
so they pointed into the 700R4 fittings. This transmission, with the 3:31 gears gives me 2100 RPM at 70
mph. That'll do. Monster had pre-setup everything in the transmission so my speedometer reads correctly.
Back went the factory automatic transmission floor shifter (after fixing the gouging done to the tunnel for
the 4 speed shifter). I still have to swap back in the automatic brake pedal.
So, right now my tasks are to fix the pinion seal and do some routing changes to the A/C drain tube
that now conflicts with the new headers. After that I should be able to make it up to see you folks. I am
really looking forward to seeing everyone's rides.
Cheers,
John

Featured Car Questionnaire
Terry Taylor's BBC 69 Camaro Coupe
The Silver Bullet
How did you acquire the car?
I saw the car on Craigslist for sale. I called the guy and he said that he had already accepted a
deposit on it. I wrote it off as first come first served, and I was not first. That was Tuesday or Wednesday
that week. I had sent an email to the club asking if they knew of a 69 for sale anywhere. Saturday morning
that week Frank (Huff) called me and asked me if I was looking for a 69 Big Block car. I said that I was
looking for a 69, but didn‟t care if it was a big block. I immediately got excited. He said there was one on
Craigslist. I asked him if it was the silver one with the extra hood and he said yes. I said that I had talked to
the guy and he already had a deposit. Frank said that the guy told him the same thing and Frank asked how
much and the guy told him $200. Frank told the guy that he was coming over with his asking price and the
guy told him to COME ON! I immediately hung up the phone and called the guy and told him that I would
be over in the afternoon. I ran to the bank and moved some monies around and went and saw the guy.
When I got there and saw the car I thought it looked pretty good. The main drawback was the big hole in
the roof. Someone had cut a hole for a sunroof. I didn‟t see much rust on the car, looking in the trunk and
floorboards. I asked him if the car would start and drive; he said yes. I told him “lets go”. He pulled the
car out and I took it for a drive down the street. I got about 200 yards and immediately heard a loud “clunk”
then the car started missing badly. I thought “Uh oh” this is not the car for me. When I “limped” it back to
his house, he said “Oh one of the rocker arms came off”. Puzzled I looked under the hood and sure enough
one of the rocker arms was laying on the side of the engine. He said that he forgot to torque down the nuts.
Yeah, there was a loose nut there alright. He had not even put on the valve covers. Luckily the gear on the
distributor was not fully seated in the oil pump or the whole interior engine bay would have been soaked
with oil! We agreed on a price, I gave him half the cash and he gave me the title. I told him I would be back
the next day with a trailer. I made a quick call to my friend Frank (Huff) and soon had a trailer.
The next day I picked up the car and dropped it off at my mechanic for a good once over. He fixed the hole
in the roof and replaced the rocker arms with a stock GM set. He has since stabbed in a new hydraulic cam
and lifters, replaced the rear-end I tracked down in Austin. Rodney Moore installed some disc brakes and
got them all working fine. My brother-in-law painted the orange and black cowl hood and top where the
sunroof used to be to match the rest of the car. My plan was to make it into a daily driver and not sink a
whole lot of money into it just yet. The overdrive transmission had helped with the MPG, but not really
enough to make it a full daily driver. I currently drive it two to three times a week to work. Long term I
plan to make this one look just like the one I had in High School, for that you will have to wait…
How long have you owned the car?
I purchased the car around the middle of August 2009.
What would you do differently with the car?
Long term this car is going to be blue with white Z stripes with white interior.
Any company or service that deserves high praise for helping with your car?
Frank Manzare (Huff) for the lead and the use of the trailer.
Boris Rapin for initial mechanical and engine work.
Rodney Moore for brake and front end alignment work.
My wife for tolerating all my toys.
