Maintenance / "Flickering" speedo needle
« on: July 11, 2016, 04:57:03 AM »
I've been having this problem for quite some time.  I have replaced the cable and the driven gear.  I also pulled  the core out of the new cable and lubed it with white lithium grease.

It there a way to lube the speedo itself?  What would I used if it can be lubed?

 It's a '69 Camaro.  Thanks, Dave

The speedo is an OER repo unit.

Garage Talk / Anyone here familair with Rigby, ID. ?

I just got my NCRS report.  My '69 was originally sold by Ray's Chevrolet Inc. in Rigby, ID.  Today Rigby has only about 3500 population.  In '69 it must have no more than a stop sign.  Rigby is a suburb of Idaho Falls.  Any more information on Rigby would be great.  Thanks  Dave

Restoration / What else do I need to change?

I've started to collect pieces to return my "711" interior back to it's original "727".  The previous owner had everything that was white dyed black.  My question is:  Besides the seats and the door panels what needs to be white/ivory?

Thanks, Dave.

Restoration / Wheel weight removal tool

I'm going to be replacing the TT2's on my Camaro with a set of used rally wheels.  I need to remove the old wheel weights before I start painting.  Can someone lead me to a "wheel weight removal tool" source?

Thanks,  Dave

Restoration / What clip is being used for carb linkage.

I have a '69 with a 4053 carb and the 2 piece throttle rod that is 1/4" with a groove around it. What clip is being used to hold the linkage to the carb?  I'm having trouble finding something locally.

Thanks,  Dave

Restoration / Gas cap for '69 Camaro GM part number #3931449
« on: January 25, 2015, 04:48:06 AM »
I suspect this cap is no longer correct for a '69.  A '69 gas cap should be "vented".   The caps I've been getting are in AC Delco boxes and use GM#3931449.  The last 3 caps I have gotten are not actually vented causing the needle and seat to seep. This causes a gas smell to build up the my garage after driving my car.  I have to remove the gas cap to relieve the back pressure.

These caps are marked "Vented" but are in fact "Non Vented caps"   The non-vented caps appear to be of the same construction.

Where can I get a correct gas cap?  My local dealerships don't stock the caps any longer but can order them, but they are not correct.

Ideas please.  I have been able to find good caps in the past but not lately.  Dave

When viewing most posts on this forum when an attachment is mentioned I see no way to open said attachment.  I see no link attached in most cases.

Where is the prompt to view these attachments?

Thanks,  Fred Mertz  (friend of Ricky)
