Mild Modifications / Brake & fuel lines
« on: December 27, 2016, 04:02:15 PM »
My 69 L-35 Camaro has a 1/4 return & 3/8 OD fuel lines,they are original.I thought only the L-78 engine got a single 3/8 OD line & my car should have  5/16 OD & 1/4 OD ?? I have a 69 chevelle "being restored" that has the same lines. They are one continuous line, tank to fuel pump.I would like to set a junction block " no rubber hose" somewhere along the frame.does anyone make one? I also want to Eliminate the dist. block "brake lines front disc rear drum" on the frame rail & use a combo valve just below the master cylinder.Can that be done?? I want to set a junction block for the brake line too, as it is also  one continuous line.
Thanks for any help!~

General Discussion / Buying & selling old camaros
« on: April 13, 2012, 12:04:52 AM »
A friend of mine bought a 69 camaro a few days ago"a retired man who buys & sells old  chevys & parts.A few days ago he bought a 69 camaro,nothing really special, deluxe interior needed work ,seats ripped,dash warped badly ect.12 bolt"not posi"small block greasy,dity broken alt. bracket,painted 3 or 4 times ect.But it did run.The whole car in my mind was adverage at best.He paid 12,500.Sold for 15,500 And a guy wanted to give him 18,000 but he had already promised it to someone. love 69 camaros but are these cars in that "state" really worth that much$$?Maybe because Ive owned one for 36 yrs & I have mine,but I really dont understand this car to me was about 5000 all day long!

Maintenance / RS Headlamps trouble shooting
« on: October 30, 2010, 05:37:37 PM »
Im in the process of figuring out my headlamp doors,I think I know the problem. The headlamp switch seems fine I pull out the switch & vac is cut off at the orange hose.At the vac relay I have vac on the green nozzle with the switch" in the "normal" position.That will close the doors & keep them closed.When I push the switch to the open position I still have vac on the green nozzle & no vac on the red nozzle.That tells me the vac relay is bad. Correct? Also if I put vac on the green hose from the vac relay"by passing vac resovoir & vac relay" I still have vac on the red hose & vice versa.That tells me I have a leak in the actuators too.If I hold my thumb over the opposite hose im not vacuumizing & release my thumb the doors will move,not all the way but if I continue to do that they will open or close all the way.This sounds like I have a bad vacuum relay  & bad actuators does this sound correct?

General Discussion / RS Headlamps
« on: October 11, 2010, 11:02:52 PM »
Well I know questions about RS headlamps have been posted many times on this & other web sites.I have read most of them.I was wondering if there is a "Check List" of problems & a diagnosis.Im just finishing a restoration on my Z10 & my doors not opening will hold me up.I was prepared though as I did not install the grill & front tires. There are so many things that could keep my doors from opening& closing Im not sure where to start.I have used all my original parts except new hoses & check valve.They worked fine years go but..  Any help is greatly appreciated
