I am by no means an authority, but I used to have a '68 coupe with air conditioning. If my memory is correct, as this was about 40 years ago, under the carpeting was a series of die cut black tarry (3/8" thick??) kind of pieces lining the floor boards and extending under the back seat. I THINK it also went up the firewall but I can't remember if it was half way or more. There was a paper like covering on the top so the carpet wouldn't stick to it. I think it was the same on the underside. I may still have the pieces in my garage attic but the car is long gone. Unfortunately I am out of state for an extended period of time so I can't help any more than this. This might have been an A/C car only thing too, I'm not sure. Hope this helps.

If I am incorrect about what I think I remember I am sure others here will chime in.

General Discussion / Re: 60's registration sticker
« on: March 28, 2018, 11:54:23 PM »
Hello Group,

   I've been searching this topic and get conflicting answers from people I ask locally.
The question is: The small license plate sticker seen on, let's say NY or California 60's plates, is the sticker month/year when registration was issued -or- the month/year of registration expiration.


Back on topic...Pennsylvania no longer uses stickers on our plates. Until recently, in Pennsylvania the plate sticker designated the expiration month and year for the car's registration. Our safety and emissions inspections expiration USED to coincide with the plate expiration. When that changed, I'm not sure. However, back when I started driving in the seventies prior to mandatory emissions testing, we used to have to have our cars inspected every six months.

I was afraid of them being embedded.  I guess i'm going to have to do it the long way. I didn't want to have to scroll through a web page to get to the charts. I was going to set up an album in my iphone for quick access when I'm at a swap meet.

I have no intention of using CRG info for anything other than personal use. No books, articles, webpages or such.

But thank you all for the quick and patient replies.

In that situation you may need a screen capture program like Greenshot (free) to capture the whole screen or a portion of if. Then you can save the captured section as a jpg or png file.


I saw the whole coding for the web page and I understand what you're saying. But I was hoping there was an easier way to save the charts or tables without resorting to a screen capture.

As for the right click and drag to highlight... nothing happens.  However a left click and drag will let me highlight a portion of the text and then I can Copy,  but I don't get an option to Paste to my pictures folder or even the desktop..

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. When I right click and choose "save as", it saves the entire article as an HTML document. It doesn't differential between the tables or charts and the entire text document. I'm wanting to save the chart as a jpeg or pdf.

In reading about drivetrain decode, and all the other research that CRG has generated, I noticed that while most of the pics are "clickable", and hence easy to save to my computer pictures folder, all the charts that I ran across are not downloadable. I would have to use Windows snipping tool to save them to my computer. Is it possible to eventually make them "clickable" like most of the pictures? It would make them easier to save, and easier to transfer to my phone or tablet for reference in the field or at swap meets.

« on: March 28, 2018, 08:59:12 PM »
I was wondering... If people are modifying full size 12 bolt axles to fit Camaros, do said axles use the same casting number 3894860, (3969341 for late '69), as the Camaros did? That is, is the cast center section of the 12 bolts the same across the full Chevrolet line, even trucks? If the casting number is Camaro specific, it would make it much easier to spot a fake 12 bolt without having to resort to decoding the stamping numbers. If the casting number is NOT Camaro specific, then aren't we back to checking if the stampings are original or not?
I am assuming coil spring axles would require a different casting and number.

Can you provide contact info to order one of these? Cool invention.
I really wish I could. From what I can tell, the facebook group is based in the Phillipines, and there is a bit of a language issue to be able to understand what they're saying, and facebook translate is less than perfect. I'm going to try and replicate what they did, but figuring out the circuitry is going to be a challenge. It took me weeks to be able to track down the supplier for the front panel! If I can get it working, then I'll see if there is any interest in these.

I found a facebook group dedicated to those pioneers, and someone is converting old 8 Track to Cassette adapters to bluetooth/usb/aux in. I believe it's using the existing adapter output so it can be popped in and out. Managed to find the parts out of China, now I have to figure out how to wire them up.

What do you think of this? Way back in the eighties,  I bought a new underdash Pioneer TP-900 Supertuner 8-Track Fm Radio. Never installed it, and it's still new in the box. I've always thought it would make a nice period piece after my car is finished. Leave the in dash AM radio with dash speaker, and have the Pioneer with a pair of 6X9's in back. Pic is not my unit, but what it looks like. Assuming I attached the pic correctly.

They are people making Camaro 12 bolts from big car units. Some are really hard to tell. Some are easy to see.

I appreciate the info. That is exactly what I was wondering. I see no reason to spend thousands on an axle so someone can make a huge profit on my ignorance.

Restoration / 1967 12 bolt question
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:18:35 AM »
When I bought my Camaro 30+ years ago for parts it was missing its rear axle. Since then, I've found that it should have had a 12 bolt in it as was evidenced by the remaining factory traction bar and the trim tag. What I am wondering as I'm looking for a reasonably priced 12 bolt, has anyone come across "Fake" '67 12 bolt axles? I know they should have mono perches, as well as the traction bracket, but since one could buy repops of those pieces now, I am concerned about buying a "converted" axle. I am not that concerned about 68, 69 Camaro axles being converted, but rather other applications. Yes. I also know I should check the axle code too, but that might be hard to do with out actually seeing the axle in person.

In a related question, I see that there are two versions of the axle bracket welded to the axle. Can my round bar fit both bracket generations? Also, will a square bar fit both bracket generations.

If memory serves, there are another two in the trunk. The others? don't know.

Restoration / 1967 Rally Sport headlight motor repair help!
« on: October 11, 2016, 04:01:30 AM »
I was wondering if anyone makes any parts to rebuild the headlight door motors other than the gearcase? Specifically the output shaft of the gearbox, the bronze(?) bushing, and the retaining nut.
It seems that no matter how careful I am in taking then nut off, it shears the stud at least 50% of the time.

Several years ago, I had someone at work machine two shafts using one of my good ones for a pattern. If no one else sells them, I hope to get someone else I know to make me more.

And that leads to my next question. Rather than reverse engineering the part(s), does the engineering documents still exist so I can get the exact dimensions to machine them?

I am hoping that someone with access to the info would be able to help me out as I have twelve motors in need of these shafts, bushings, and nuts.

I am also hoping to be able to find the correct, or at least close to correct, semi-tubular rivets to put everything back together.
