Restoration / 1968 rear axle brake lines
« on: September 23, 2017, 07:31:07 AM »
Bought a set of these from a vendor that are supposedly mandrel bent to original spec. Tried to fit them on the rear axle and they are atrocious. Even after trying to tweak some of the bends, they are not even close. Can anybody that has bought a set and is happy with the quality and fit, please let me know where they purchased them.

Need help from some of you experts out there. Has this crank got a 3.760 or 3.766 stroke ? There's a lot of conflicting info out there as to what is what.

« on: December 01, 2014, 01:38:23 PM »
Was reading my service manual regarding installation of the the pinion seal. The seal I'm using is an original GM 3924031. It mentions the use of a guage to go between the seal lip and housing. Does anyone know the thickness of the guage as I don't have access to one ?

« on: November 12, 2014, 05:30:58 AM »
Bought a repo TH400 mount the other day from one of the Camaro restoration companies and it's a real piece of junk made in Korea. Does any know where I can buy a half decent one ? I would prefer a genuine GM one, but realise they are near impossible to find.

« on: May 13, 2014, 12:21:02 AM »
Have any of you guys fitted a trans oil cooler to your 68 69 Camaros ?  It's not a numbers matching car so I'm not too bothered but I want to do a nice job of it. Any ideas on how to mount it or photos would be nice.

Trying to find one of these modulators with no luck. The original one I have is no longer working and I don't want to put on one of the newer small type. Does anybody know where I can get one or maybe another solution ?

« on: January 28, 2014, 03:14:43 PM »
When I disassembled my rear end I didn't notice any gasket between the brake backing plate and housing. I've noticed some resto vendors sell replacements. Are they supposed to be there or not ?

« on: May 19, 2013, 12:20:30 AM »
Does anybody know if this was the correct modulator (part # and finish ) fitted to the 68 Camaro TH400's. Some people say they were cad plated so I need some advice. Also were the cooler line fittings that screw into the case brass or cad plated ?

General Discussion / 68 Camaro horns
« on: December 13, 2012, 01:32:26 PM »
Not sure whether this has been discussed before but does anybody know the correct position for the mounting of the high and low note horns on a standard car. I've seen a few posts regarding a 69 but not a 68. The aim manual is not very clear.

« on: May 30, 2012, 09:34:29 AM »
Does anyone know which one of these shifter cable brackets is correct for 68 Camaro with TH400 and floor mounted shifter with console ? The description says they both are but the first one looks more like the one on page 353 of the factory assembly manual.

Does anyone know if the TH400 oil pan in 68 Camaros was stamped with (Hydra-matic DIV OF GMC) or not. Secondly were they a plated or bare steel finish.

General Discussion / Shock absorbers
« on: February 03, 2012, 08:37:37 AM »
I'm after some aftermarket shock absorbers for the front and rear of my 68 Camaro. I can't afford spiral shocks so am after some good quality shocks that don't cost a fortune but aren't rubbish either. Is anybody using some that they can recommend.
