General Discussion / Re: Headlamp adjuster screw
« on: March 06, 2019, 01:12:03 AM »
Shane,

Here are a couple of pics of the adjusting screw from my 01D '68. I replaced the Nylon nut and replated the original screw.

Hope this helps.

Jim,

Yes. Found the same AMK info as you did. No captive washer. Itís integral to the head.

Iím leaning towards phosphate as well but sure would love to know what the GM defined coating finish is.

Thanks,

Bob

Thanks William,

I was looking in the M40 section since my car has a TH400. My car is a '68 so the plate and screw is shown on UPC M35 A20 in the AIM.

Canít find any reference to what type of finish the screw is. HBC sells the screws in Silver Cad but Iím not sure that is correct. If I look real closely at my screws I find no trace of Silver Cad. Iím guesing it was a phosphate finish.

Thanks,

Bob

Originality / Clutch Rod Blanking Plate
« on: February 24, 2019, 06:30:14 PM »
The blanking plate in the picture below is installed on the firewall when an automatic transmission is installed to fill the hole used by the clutch rod. Was this plate installed by Fisher and was painted when the firewall was painted or was it later installed after delivery by Fisher. Couldn't find any mention of it in the AIM and am trying to determine the finish on the screws.

Thanks,

Bob

Here area few pictures of my '68 "born with" TH400 dipstick. Note that it does not have a part number stamped on it but it does have the "M" stamp. I found this link which seems to indicate that yours may be a '69 dipstick??

The overall length on my dipstick is 23 1/2 inches.

If you need more info just let me know.

Jim,

Here is a pic of my "born with" TH400 governor cover. I put it in an evaporust bath and then treated it with RPM to protect the finish. It appears to be natural steel.

Like Chick, I too, put mine in Evaporust. Came out very clean so I just put some surface protection on it to prevent future rust. FWIW, attached are a few photo's.

Chick,

Any thoughts on why some cars have bushings where there is no part number or markings? Do you think itís a case of different suppliers or perhaps the Service replacement bushings only had the part number on them?

Lloyd,

Just another reference point for you....

These are the bushings that came out of my '68 01D car. All have integrated washers. Yes, I know, they were pretty bad!  :) I found no additional washers on the 380's or 361's when the car was disassembled and unfortunately no sign of any tape. I can't attest that they were never changed by a previous owner but I've owned this car since 1978 and it's never been apart. Judging from the condition of them I highly suspect they're original to the car!

Also interesting to note that none of the bushings or cushions had any part numbers or manufacturers mark on them.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Font Question 2.0

Lloyd,

I've looked through hundreds of font files and have come up empty handed. So the next best thing to do was to simply recreated (see image). If you're interested in the native file or desire it in just about any format just PM me.

Good Luck!

Lloyd,

I'm pretty sure I used Century Schoolbook when I redid my brake lever. Here is a quick mock-up of what yours would look like in that font.

I had mine done by Bairís Corvette. They did a fabulous job. Hereís a link to a thread on the Team Camaro website which talks about the ball joint rivets:

Originality / Re: Plastic wire harness cover tube in trunk
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:52:58 AM »
Allen,

The item youíre referring to is the sheathing that goes over the taillight harness. You are correct in that the harness enters the trunk from the drivers side. The sheathing covers the harness all the way to the passenger side.

I donít believe that any vendor carries the sheathing. In fact, when you purchase a reproduction harness the sheathing is absent. I took the sheathing off of my old harness and reinstalled it on the reproduction harness in order to make ďtechnicallyĒ correct.

Tim,

I purchased my Sharkhide from Eastwood...

Not sure what the shipping cost to Australia might be though.
