General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro SS 350 crankshaft
« on: September 09, 2019, 07:10:10 PM »
I believe the 1967 350 is a small journal motor. If that is true where would a small journal 350 cast crank come from?

It's a 68. I assumed the first gens. were all the same.

Thanks Paul

I thought it would be something like that. I'll have to take a third look, maybe it's covered with splatter paint. Thanks you for the reply Bert.


Restoration / Ground point in the trunk
« on: September 02, 2019, 02:48:14 AM »
I installed a reproduction rear wiring harness. All the wire connectors and light sockets are straight forward, but there is a ground wire around the fuel filler that I can't find a attaching point. It has a round eyelet so I know it gets a screw or on a stud, but I'm not seeing it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Paul

Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 water pump original to engine?
« on: August 31, 2019, 05:42:58 PM »
The D291 should decode to April 29th 1971 as you said. You need to be looking for 1968 dated water pump if your car is a 1968. Anything dated 1969 is going to be for 1969 cars leading into 1970 Cars. You have to remember new models started showing at dealers fall of the year before.

Does the engine produce any white smoke/steam out of the exhaust? Any water in the oil?It will look the coffee with a lot of cream.

I believe the material I used is nylon. The wife bought a Shark vacuum that include a black draw string bag for the extra utensils. In todays venacular I re-purposed it.

I found this material that looks close enough considering it will be under the dash. There are a couple imperfections where the glue seeped through., but I can live with it. Thanks for the replies.

After rechecking a old speaker, I'm leaning towards a Very thin piece of black felt(if I can find the appropriate thickness), similar to what you might find on pool table. It may not be as translucent, but after 50 years I'm not sure what it was originally.

I ordered a replacement dash speaker that has two 4" speakers instead of a single. This one doesn't have the black translucent material covering the speakers. Does anybody know what the material is and where I can buy it. Thanks

Restoration / Re: Best reproduction Bumper?

You can purchase rechromed original bumpers from several companies that take cores, and rechrome them for resale. I was at Carlisle a couple years ago and there were 2 company's selling rechromed original bumpers. You have to make sure you get one for a 68. The companies don't always differentiate between 67-68 unless you specify. One was in California I believe, I don't recall there name.

Assuming you have points, have you checked the gap. I use a dwell meter to set them right on 30 degrees. I've had a hesitation on another car that I couldn't find, turned out the points were out of adjustment, not significantly but enough to cause the hesitation.

Originality / Re: 1969 Z/28 oil pressure line
« on: August 18, 2019, 03:21:47 PM »
I did that on my 69 Chevelle 30 plus years ago, just parts you can buy at local parts or hardware store. You have the gauge for a pressure reading and idiot like in case your not paying attention. I'm considering doing it on the Camaro, if I add a aftermarket gauge, it only had idiot lights originally.

We used to say if you saw the light it was already blown up, but one can hope. Paul

Originality / Re: 1968 Rear Antenna wire routing?
« on: August 15, 2019, 01:35:33 AM »
Thanks for the pictures, that's what I needed. Now I'm going digging through the coffee cans of parts that came with the car for those retaining clips. Thanks Paul

Originality / 1968 Rear Antenna wire routing?
« on: August 13, 2019, 12:13:45 AM »
Anybody know the routing of the rear antenna wire. I know it runs down the right side of the car? I didn't take the car apart, so I'm at a loss on the original route. Does it go over the outer wheel well at the rear seat divider or under the seat? Thanks Paul
