General Discussion / Re: Plans for your camaro?
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:36:30 PM »
My main plans this winter is to get my car into a shop, still searching for a very reputable shop, to have my rear axle changed out from the 3.73 that's in there back to the stock ratio 3.31. My entire goal for my Camaro is to have a daily driver, I do some freeway driving, so this will help when paired up to my M20. It's been delayed a little bit, but have my sights set on hopefully getting it in at the end of the month, so if anyone in the Utah/SLC area knows of a great shop let me know. This summer I want to get my engine rebuilt and swapped out, have a line on an original 350 from a 67 Camaro, but holding out to see if I can find a 350 from a 68 (my original engine is long gone, but want a period correct motor to go back in it and get rid of the 350 truck motor that's in there).

Possible other option

I've heard the Just Dashes does restoration work on those types of items. I'm sending my dash pad there next month for my 68, from recommendations from people on the Forum.

Hi Steve,
Lucky you to have that one there laying around. That is the style I was looking for, but didn't realize as stated there were two different numbers for that dipstick. But yes, that was the style I was seeking. Congrats on having that! Hope you find the other one you have in your stockpile, sounds like gremlins got ahold of it.

Thank you for the reply, someone who has access to an original has reached out to me from the Forum to help me out. Much appreciated.

General Discussion / 3923239 SB Dipstick
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:12:53 PM »
Does anyone have a good source to find a repop of the correct gray tipped dipstick for a 68 Camaro 350 SB, #3923239? My car did not have the original engine when I bought it, but I have located a 68 350ci that has the correct MS code for my 4 speed car, just not numbers correct but I believe that to be long gone. Have been trying to source date code correct parts when I can for the engine rebuild to eventually happen, but this item seems to be pretty illusive. Been looking online for over a year with no luck on the selling sites, and as of now I haven't been able to find a reproduction version so wanted to know if anyone knew of a source, or am I just out of luck on this detail? Thank you for any help and Happy New Year to the Forum.

I agree Chris, I check every day first thing. It's like a never ending treasure hunt I guess. Someday someone will strike gold....

General Discussion / Re: Pitting on intake
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:19:39 PM »
Thanks everyone, that's what I'll do. I did read that post on the hot-slots and the plugs, got some on order as I type this. I'll look for some sealer to fill in the pits, just wasn't sure if that was possible. I'm glad then I can keep to the originality of the car. Thanks

General Discussion / Pitting on intake
« on: December 04, 2017, 04:11:30 AM »
Can someone give me their input/expertise on this manifold. It's correct for my Camaro and I have the correct carb for it as well (I'm goin to put a date correct 350 in it), but as I'm not a very experienced mechanic, is the pitting on the manifold going be an issue where the carb and water neck mount? And if so, can it be fixed? Or will I need to find another intake? I know that there is a fix to plug the two extra holes, I'll do that, with either brass plugs or a 3 gasket set up I saw online. I'm just wondering if it's worth the effort given the pitting that is present. Thanks

Ah, Ok Russ. Thanks, much appreciated. I'll give that a try and see if that rod works, and report back, just in case somewhere down the road someone else runs into this.

That part number is the actual intake I have. Funny your catalog says the rod for that part number.

General Discussion / Choke Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-jet
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:52:56 PM »
Question regarding chokes, and I thought I'd seen a string on this before but I can't relocate it. I have a stock Quadrajet carb for my car, 7028213, and I also have a NOS choke kit for that carburetor. I had purchased a Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-Jet intake for rebuilding a 350 to put in my car. When I mount the carb onto the intake, the NOS kit won't work/reach from the platform on the intake to the linkage on the carb for the choke. I then purchased the choke kit from Edelbrock (1931) and the choke rod won't work/reach.
Has anyone ran into this, options of another kit or rod to use? I'd like to stay with the NOS kit and keep it looking as original as possible, but not sure that's gonna work. Any help or input greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks guys for all the input and help. I'll continue to use the AIM and when I can't find what I need I'll continue to poke around in the forum. If I can't find what I am seeking I'll throw out a message, I guess that's all good because somewhere down the line someone else might have the same question and can then find the answer. Much appreciated, everyone have a great Thanksgiving.

Wow Tim, thanks for that perfect info. I guess that's the kind of info. I was looking to be able to find myself. But at $300+ per book, I'll post here and be selective as to not drive y'all crazy. Many thanks and I'll use that parts wiki as much as I can as well.

Well, for instance. I'd like to be searching for a Tri-bar steering wheel for my Camaro. Old picture of it showed that's what came on the car, now long gone and replaced with an aftermarket steering wheel. Can't really pin down the right part number to search for in a 1968 Camaro for the correct wheel, lots of numbers out there for assorted models of cars that used that Tri-bar wheel. And just didn't want to clutter up the forum with every little part # need request as I search for the correct replacements. I try and find forum posts from before, but don't find part #'s all the time.
I saw this on ebay, looks very detailed with part #'s and exploded views, but the price is killer.
