Restoration / Re: 67 rs pinstripe- z21?
« on: November 04, 2017, 12:39:02 AM »
Without having to "scuff the clear" to pinstripe, I take it that you're finished upon removing the stencil or when finished free handing.  That's excellent news knowing that three more coats of clear are not needed over the pin striping.

If using a stencil, do you wait until the striping paint is dry (to remove stencil), or do you remove the stencil when the paint is "green"?
Any problems with buffing, without clear over the pinstripe?

I found pinstriping stencils at Finesse Pinstriping, stencil F22 for our '67 Camaro's.  Stencil F22 has an additional third stripe, but that can easily be omitted during layout.  The F22 stencil has a 1/16" stripe, an 1/8" gap, and a 3/32" stripe, an 1/8"gap, and a 1/16" stripe that isn't needed.  That is very close to the original .060" stripe, .100" gap, and .100" stripe.  Just thought I'd let anyone know who is considering a Z21 stripe in their restoration.

Pete's L48  -  beautiful survivors!!
Maroman  - yes, the 126.5/8" would be the length of the stripe.  I should have searched and got my facts correct, rather than trying to remember (which can be vague at best, sometimes).

On page Z21 A1 (in the AIM) the start of the Z21 pinstripe is -48.437 from the firewall, unless you had the SS/RS option, where the start of the Z21 stripe would be -44.125" from the firewall to allow for the bumble bee stripe.  On page UPC 11-13 B8 of the AIM, it shows the fire wall as being reference "0.00" for measurements.  Every time I open the AIM, I learn something new!

Mike,
Were you able to locate a source for the 1/16", 1/8" space, and 3/32" pin striping stencil (all three dimensions in one roll)?  I've searched and can't find anything.  Free handing those stripes or free handing two separate stencils and making them exactly parallel is beyond my abilities.

I believe that the 126.625" is from the datum line (aka: firewall)  As I remember, there is also a datum line reference number for the ending of the front fender stripe.

Originality / Re: Correct A6 casting number for early '67 Camaro?

That's what makes me wonder if there were different casting numbers for different models.

Originality / Correct A6 casting number for early '67 Camaro?
« on: April 06, 2017, 05:03:29 AM »
Was there a specific casting mold number used on '67 A6 Camaro compressors (rear backing plate)?  Different casting molds for different GM models?  I have a 6555302 casting dated (H 16 6) (August) and a 6556406 casting dated (K 27 6) (November).  My build is 11B.  I know the 406 casting is beyond my build date, but here are two compressors within a couple months of each other, with different casting back plate numbers.  Also as a note, the front castings only have casting dates.  The AIM calls for a model number 6550133 (which was just a sticker on an A6).

There is ample documentation of engine block and head casting numbers, but I'm searching for correctness in compressors. Also, were the 1966 compressor castings used for early 1967 model vehicles, just as the 1966 engine castings were used for the early '67 models?

General Discussion / Re: 67 front speaker dimensions
« on: April 05, 2017, 04:41:31 AM »
I should have been a little more specific.  Thanks for pointing that out.  The factory speakers were the same for A/C or non A/C cars (10 ohm).  The AFTERMARKET replacement speakers (4 ohm) have much larger magnets to handle today's much more powerful radios.  The AFTERMARKET a/c speakers (also 4 ohm) have smaller magnets as to not physically interfere with the a/c control unit, making them less able to handle as much power.

The front speaker is 4" x 10". Factory speaker resistance is 10 ohms.  If using your original GM radio, make sure your replacement speaker is 10 ohms.  If using current model radios, a 4 ohm speaker will be needed.  The factory A/C cars use a smaller speaker thickness, usually resulting in a shallower depth magnet which equals less power handling capabilities.

Originality / Compressor inspection stamp?
« on: February 21, 2017, 05:34:59 AM »
'Needing help in recreating the '67 A/C inspection stamp that was placed on the A6 compressors (Norwood built, 11B).  When cleaning years worth of repaints from the compressor, I uncovered a partial inspection stamp that I believe inspectors placed on the compressor when the A/C system was tested and certified.

The partial stamp is a yellow circle which is approximately 1-1/8" round, has "TEST" inside the circle, and has "CHEV" outside the circle at 6 o'clock.  I believe that the stamp was placed half on, and half off,  the compressor ID sticker.  Anyone have a photo or the actual wording inside the circle?

Thanks for your help!

Decoding/Numbers / 67 Dryer - Receiver?
« on: April 12, 2014, 01:10:28 AM »
Were there any date or model stampings on '67 dryer - receivers? 

I've been told that stampings on the bottom of the can are from rebuilt originals.  Does anyone know if this is true?  I've come across a '63 dryer that has stampings on the bottom, but is sworn to be original, new, and never installed.  Another knowledgeable individual has stated that he has had several new dryers through the years - all without stampings, dates, or codes.  I'm leaning towards this as being factual - no numbers, dates, or codes.

Several "old school" A/C shops that I have called don't have any knowledge on stampings., numbers, dates, or codes.   They'll rebuild an original, but have never paid any attention in regards to numbers.  Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Mike,

That's an excellent idea.  If I can't locate an orange decal by responses from this site, the muffler bracket will sure hide the seam.  Thanks!

Mike,
Thanks for taking the time and responding, and letting me know about your orange January 17, '67 compressor decal.  Safe guard it, as replacing it (as I'm learning), may take years (and then again may never happen).

Kurt,
Talk about, duh!  In my excitement of finding a decal with an October build date and the right compressor number (no doubt a repop) , I totally forgot that the model year was from August '66 thru July '67.  Any idea on how or where to locate an ORANGE prior November '66 decal?  Thanks again.
