Restoration / Re: complete brake booster for drum brakes: parts numbers
« on: September 07, 2017, 01:05:53 AM »
somebody knows what should be the code for the Camaro 69 drum brakes front and rear master cylinder? The casting number should be 5460465, but there's a lot of application using this casting number, what are the main difference ?

Like the eBay item I post just above is for an Oldsmobile.....with the same 5460465 casting number. Would it be ok ? If not why ? What's the difference ?

Thanks Richard, I appreciated. I'm ok with the booster, I do have one in restoration right now, and the date is slightly earlier than expected but it's ok.

It seems that the master cylinder has been used with many application. The link to eBay I put above, is the same casting number, but for an 1971 Oldsmobile.

Do you guys would trust it, used in that state ? Not sure I want to invest in a master cylinder rebuilt....

Restoration / complete brake booster for drum brakes: parts numbers
« on: September 06, 2017, 05:33:06 AM »
when I had my Camaro restored few years back, I've put a repro brake booster kit, from hbc. It works fine even if it's a booster for disc/drum, but now I'd like to have an original booster.

My RS Camaro, according to the POP has no power brakes originally. The previous owner decided to convert to power brake, so I'd like to continue that way. I do have 4 drums brakes, front and rear. So I'm looking for power brake, with four drums.....originally as much as possible, which parts are required ?

-I've found an original  restored brake booster, casting 3972

-I'm trying to find an original master cylinder, which should be casting 5460465. If I can't find one, I may use this one instead:

https://www.classicindustries.com/product/1969/chevrolet/camaro/parts/mc36233a.html

Wha do you guys think about this one from eBay (only the cylinder part): http://www.cafr.ebay.ca/itm/1971-Olds-Cutlass-Fback-Brake-Master-Booster-5460465/142498292422?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Otherwise, what other parts are required to complet my "brake booster" restoration ? What are the casting / part number ?

proportioning valve ?

line ?

distribution braket ?

Right now I'm using the following kit on my car: http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/25780/1967-1968-1969-Camaro-%26-Firebird-Power-Brake-Booster-%26-Disc-Brake-Master-Cylinder-Kit-With-11%22-Gold-Iridite-Booster-With-Replacement-Style-Master-Cylinder/

Any comment and help are appreciated !

Originality / Re: Exhaust line for a small block: which one to buy ?
« on: September 04, 2017, 06:09:23 PM »
I'm sure Gardner is the best....but I have to be honest: my Camaro is only an RS, so doesn't worth as much as a Z or SS......and also it's very clean under, but not Showroom....

I believe that an aluminized 2" from any supplier (heartbeat, Rick's or Camaro Depot) should do a great job.....

I will not go stainless for sure.

Originality / Re: Brake booster: original colour ?
« on: September 02, 2017, 07:15:03 AM »
Yes, black paint is incorrect. The original finish was (yellow) zinc dichromate, often called 'gold iridite'.
That's exactly what I taught. Probably few people had the engine bay repainted in black and kept the booster in there for some reasons.

Anyway I'll searched somewhere else, not sure I'd like to scrape paint over such nice Finish

Originality / Brake booster: original colour ?
« on: September 02, 2017, 04:15:05 AM »
I know that most of the repro brake boosters are not painted, just plated.

What about the original ones in our cars ?

I'm looking for an original brake booster for 4 drum brakes, coded 3972, what should be the original finish ? I've seen some in black colour painted...was that a mistake?

Thanks !

Just curious about my current jack origin, that's all.

And (unfortunately) as a perfectionist, I'd really like to have the perfect part for my lovely car, that's it !

Thanks Ed.

Here are some pictures of the current jack I had with the car when I bought it 3 years ago











As you can see, it is 33.5 inch long

is your car a late 69 9B, or early?

It's an LM1, so probably within the first Camaro produced.....9B 1968, for a model year 69

anyway, not too sure about what I'll do.....don't like very much the repro kit. Not sure either, where the one I already had with the car comes from, it doesn't look like the Camaro jack.

Someone can explain how it works with the date coded on the shaft ? If I think about our cars, the first number is the month, second is a letter for the week. For the jack, there's a number as well, but there's much more choice of letter.....

Per example, there's some for sale with a date of 9J, or 9H.....what does that mean ? My car is a 9B from Norwood.

Originality / Re: trunk lid rear emblem with factory D80 spoiler
« on: August 28, 2017, 03:15:38 PM »
My car was restored in 2007, 8 years before I bought it. It seems to be the original trunk lid, since I do have a date on it. It'S an original part anyway.

I do believe that my spoiler was added by the dealer once upon the time, and then in 2007 when the car was restored, they repaint the inside as well, so make sure the holes we're well covered with paint to avoid future rust problem.

I've only seen the NOR type reproduced, with the date on the rivet.

I'm not taking about the repro sold by heartbeat, but the restored original ones.....at 600$ US each !
