Restoration / Subframe bushings
« on: March 29, 2011, 04:43:01 PM »
I'm replacing sub frame rubber bushings. All 4 rubber bushings(with steel sleeves) are about 2 1/2" O.D. But 2 bushings are about .700" thick, and the other 2 bushings are about .900" thick. Which goes where?? I've heard the 2-.900"thick bushings go between the floor and the sub frame by the fire wall location(on the frame), and the 2 thinner bushings(.700") go in the rear of the sub frame. Is this true??

Also, what O.D. are the core support bushings(to the sub frame) and how thick should they be??

Decoding/Numbers / Muncie 4 speed Trans
« on: February 11, 2011, 05:09:05 PM »
I've got a Muncie 4 speed trans. I've identified it's a '65-'67 trans. I think. It has a 3885010 main case, a 3857584 tail shaft case, and a 3884685 side cover with 3/8 fine thread male studs(to attach the shifter rods).  I've also identified the "circles" on each case. It has 'NO' notches on the shaft and no drain plug(Did all M22's have a drain plug??)It has the letters/numbers on stamped on bearing retainer(piece inbetween the main case & the tail shaft case) "PO307". What is that??(rebuilder's #?). 

Then stamped on the main case, bigger numbers/letters(looks like from GM--like stamping the factory would do) "6Z142867"(or "1" maybe the last number instead of "7"). Is that some sort of factory number??  Thought I'd ask before pulling the side cover and count gears. Should inspect anyway. Help Please.

Originality / '67-'69 Radiators
« on: January 09, 2011, 06:47:20 PM »
Were the '67-'69 CAMARO "Harrison"(21"-23" and 2"-2 3/4 thick) radiators found in other GM cars??  The '68-'72 Nova has the about the same sub frame, is it possible that these same radiators were also discovered in these Novas also??  However, I don't think the core support is the same on the top side of the Nova(considering only the area covering the radiator attachment).  Is it also possible some of the earlier Chevy II's('66 & '67 had these CAMARO radiators??  I don't think any of these '67-69 CAMARO radiators were carried over to the 2nd Gen(only the '70 & '71 Camaros.  Any help or pictures please.

Originality / '67-'69 Camaro Radiator Support
« on: December 06, 2010, 05:41:35 PM »
The Camaro Original GM Radiator Support vs. a 'reproduction' radiator support---I know there are 'square' holes in the GM support for flanged, square 5/16" nuts to fit in---and the reproduction has regular hex 5/16 nuts. The GM suppors seem to have more profound stamping lines/creases in ithem compared to the reproduction models. My questions are:   1. Are there any 'identifying' numbers stamped in the GM support??   2. If so, where are the numbers located??   3. If so, do the numbers refer to the week of that particular year??

'67-'69 Camaro COWL PANEL(Top Vent with Grills Panel--where windshield wipers come out)-----How do I tell an Original GM Panel from a reproduction panel??  There are no numbers I can find. The thicknesses of the 2 panel seem to be .038/.044" on the original GM panel; and .032/.039" on the reproduction panel. Probably the thicker one is the GM??  Not real sure.  Both panels look the same to me.   I need help on this one please.
