Maintenance / Re: Coil Issues
« on: March 10, 2018, 08:56:48 PM »
I had a similar issue, random misfires. Changed a lot, but they went away when I put in a Pertronix flamethrower coil (the black one and I removed the label).  works much better now.  The new coil is a tad bigger in diameter, so I had to get a longer clamp bolt

3950378 - L65 & LF7 (assume Saginaw)
3950356 - L48, L34, L35 & LM1 (assume Muncie)

I sent a message to Brian at TC to assist you. Kev

M22Mike, sorry to hear you don't like the adds (neither do I).  Being a paid member reduces a lot of those.

Yes, all 69 Camaros got the coil capacitor. If you ordered the AM/FM, you also received 2 more capacitors, one by the heater box and one by the horn relay if my memory serves.

Restoration / Re: Seat Foam

Guenther, not sure if you were going to do the seat restoration yourself or send it out.  But I restored mine and did the below tutorial, which might help you.  The cushions I used (same as 67 deluxe) were from a Camaro catalog seller, but were made by American Cushion industries.  They were nicely made, but the factory contours were not "bold" enough, so I added more foam. TMI I think makes really large bolsters, so you definitely need to match the foam to the cover as Gary pointed out.

I used Krylon flat camo paint, I think it did the trick.  Does not have the deep orange peel look, but next time I will get the base to the proper texture, then put the camo as finish coat.

Yes, I have been going to the swap meet there for decades. There were not many homes close to the track.  Now in the last couple of years the amount of new tract homes being built really close to track has skyrocketed.  Then when they move in, they start complaining about the noise. I guess they did not look around when they they were home shopping :)  But now the owners are going to put an outdoor concert venue on the track. How can someone complain about music then? :D

Yes, use the steel plugs to close the heat passage.  For the pits, I would fill them with JB weld to ensure a tight gasket seal.  Luck!

Maintenance / Re: '69 Camaro SS convertible heater core replacement
« on: December 01, 2017, 12:28:57 PM »
Randy, Congrats on knowing what to purchase way back in 69!

So having done this on a freshly painted SBC Camaro, it is not that difficult, just time consuming and you will be cussing!

I assume you do not have A/C, that is a WHOLE other procedure!

The core is in the heater box, which is inside the car. The bolts protrude into the engine bay and come out around the fan air box. It should be possible to remove the nuts (and core inlet gasket) from the engine bay side and get the heater box out, since the BBC heater hose inlets come straight out. If you have a console you will be fighting with getting the box out around the console.  The console and heater control lines will hold you back.

If I were you, I would remove the heater lines 1st (removing the glove box, makes it easier & label them!), maybe the console too before attempting the heater box removal.

Then you should be able to get it out the heater box.  The core is clipped in, remove the screws, then the core should come out.  The core should be fixable (its just a little radiator). What I did was bought a repro core and had them replace the end cap and save the Harrison logo. I think they may be dated too.

Now is a good time to look at the seals in the heater box to see if they have deteriorated. Good Luck!

Removing the fan and fan airbox would require the hood and fender to come off :)

Their REAL value of the P&A manuals is in research! These (and a lot of other) manuals are what we use to write those reports!


Thanks for all your research too Ed! :)

So as a person who has one of those $300 parts books :), the value in searching for things is limited as sellers do not always know the parts number.  The are useful for unwrapped NOS parts with a number, to search for what they fit.  The AIM has the specific part number on each page, a bit more useful when trying to find a specific NOS part.

But for 68 steering wheel info, look no further than here on CRG, in the reports section:

Luck on the hunt!
