Maintenance / 67 camaro fuel gauge problem
« on: May 19, 2014, 03:34:29 PM »
My 67 RS/SS with console gauges fuel gauge has stopped working. Any ideas? I think it is a ground problem as it is pinned fast full. Yet, I ran out of gas!

Originality / Original oil line fitting
« on: January 15, 2014, 03:02:33 PM »
Can someone with an original oil pressure gauge in their 69 Z-28 post a picture of the fitting in the rear of the block? I still have the original oil line, which has a female fitting that screws onto the fitting on the back of the block. I bought one of those brass extensions that people sell on eBay, and it is a female fitting. Is there a male/male coupling in between or did someone sell me the wrong part on ebay (shocker!)
Thanks
Buddy
P.s. It shows the extension in the assembly manual, but not a very good pic.

General Discussion / BEWARE stateway auto transport
« on: June 27, 2011, 03:36:58 PM »
just thought i would give everyone here a heads up about a horrible experience i had with a transport company for a 70 z-28 project i just acquired. after three weeks of bull@#$%, i still dont have a driver assigned to pick up my car in arizona. first you never get a real person on the phone. prompt after prompt sends to your agent's voicemail. they tell you they have their own trucks, and their own drivers, but my agent slipped and told me they were trying to get an independent driver to pick up the car. he even said it would be a "Good idea" to sweeten the pot and offer an extra $30 to get someone to agree to pick up the car. do yourself a favor and stay away from this company. i am now looking for another open carrier  to transport my car if anyone knows of a reputable one. thanks for letting me vent

Originality / were rear bumper bolts splatter painted?
« on: June 24, 2008, 01:01:55 PM »
i know this has been gone over before, but i searched the old threads and didnt come up with anything. Johnz would probably know best,on a 67 camaro,  were the rear bumpers installed before or after the trunk was splatter painted? did the bolts have splatter paint on them.
thanks

i got a pleasant surprise today when i got a call from the original owner of my 67 rs/ss 350. when i bought the car from him in 1984, he said that he had the paperwork stored away some where and would dig it out and get it to me. time went by and i forgot all about it. i put the car in storage in 1989 and there it sat, other that starting it every other month, until august of 2005. i was helping a friend restore a 70 ss396/375 nova when i realized that i should be doing my own. when i was almost done with this two year project, i decided to look up the original owner and see if he was still around. i found him with no problem and was surprised to find out that he lived less than a mile away from me after moving out of his old neighborhood. he came by with his wife and two kids(now grown) and spent about two and a half hours reminiscing about rides in the car as kids. he was preparing for another move. this time to arizona. he again stated that he had just seen the original bill of sale while packing. a day or two went by and i hadnt heard from him. when i did, it was bad news. he couldnt find the bill of sale anywhere, and thought that his wife had thrown it out. i could hear her appologizing in the background. i thought my hopes of getting some original paperwork for my car were over. but this morning, i got the call. mr. heiser was in town on business and he had a surprise for me. while unpacking in arizona, he found the original bill of sale from village chevrolet in queens village new york. this is the same dealership that solda 67 marina blue z-28 now owned by jerry macneish. this is the best news i have gotten in a long time. and it only took 23 years!

Restoration / grille rivets
« on: March 05, 2007, 11:12:06 PM »
anyone have any 67- 68 rs grille rivets? there are two types. the flat ones rivet the plastic grille to the grille mldgs. the dome headed ones (which i need) rivet the grille mldg to the lower valance. my son had a playoff hockey game that went to a shootout, and i missed a box on ebay. if the guy that won that auction is on this board, i only need six.
thanks

Restoration / door latches
« on: May 29, 2006, 05:34:28 PM »
can anyone tell me if the door latches on a 67 camaro are painted the body color. it looks like the screws are factory painted, but i took a screw out and it appears that there is paint under the screw. the car was repainted once, and i want it to be correct.
thanks
