While the 6 banger runs good it just doesn't have any power for towing or getting down the road at anything over 75 MPH.
She's coming out!



Anyone need a stock jack for one of these. It's going in the dump if no one wants it. I think the rest of it is behind the seat.

I fought with myself on the frame. I didn't want to get into frame work but the stock stuff stinks but what made up my mind was this.

Look at the bend in the fender.

It didn't look too bad but it bent the frame bad. The bumper pushed the frame back. It kinked it in front of the cross member. That spot took the grunt of the hit but it even pushed the front cab mount back 1/4 inch behind the cross member.

I did a ton of measuring and eyeballing, more than I should have. I can loosen the front cab mount and fix it easy. The rest is junk so the front frame will be cut off and a 2nd Gen Z-28 front frame will be welded in.
I was hoping to get more of the right frame horn so I can weld it to the front of the Z-28 clip but there wasn't much there. I'm hoping it is enough. It makes it easier when you mount the core support back to the Z frame.





Those two spots on the top and bottom are suppose to be straight.Suspect

Early today I went to the other house and grabbed the Z-28. Not much left of the ol' Z but at least all the body parts were put to use on another guys Camaro.

Randy Vickers towed it for me.

I was trying to have a little fun before I ripped it apart. The thing is so light that it will smoke the hides off at half pedal on the driveway. In the grass it won't hardly move.

You gonna' use the front frame clip? That ole Twin I Beam works good for a truck but there's not much you can do to lower it very far.

Sami & Aryan took the cutters to some of the wires on the old Z. I went in to take an old man nap and after a few hour I walked out to Aryan still working on the Z. He had it almost ready to pull the frame.

When I was little, dad had a red and white 68 Ford. Ive been working on a guy here in town trying to buy his 70 F100. Been sitting for about five years due to bad brakes, but had a fairly fresh rebuild on a warmed up 400. Love them bumpside Fords!

I went to help my mom for about an hour today. By the time I got back Aryan had the core support off. I ask him how he got the trans lines loose. Her laughed and showed me a pair of Vise grips. Very Happy
