General Discussion / Harrison Radiator
« on: February 28, 2018, 03:37:05 AM »
Hi Guys!  Does anyone have knowledge on a Harrison Radiator, why these are constructed with a "curved neck" top radiator out-let??  This was on all the 4-core
radiators that were equipped with a 396 or 427 big block engine.  This curved neck is available in some of the Camaro parts book, that you can insall on a Harrison non-curved tank. 

General Discussion / Steering Wheel Shroud
« on: February 23, 2018, 04:13:23 AM »
Does anyone know if the steering wheel shrouds on 69 Camaros, had the edge of the shroud "painted" or was it "vacuum plating"???  The part# was 3939760. 
Some of the other dash cluster parts have this "chrome like" finish, on the outside edges of that part.  OK guys, give me a shout if you have any knowledge of someone who does this kind of restoration.   Thanks!!    Don

General Discussion / Vacuum shortage
« on: December 26, 2017, 12:24:40 AM »
Hi Guys...I have a BB 396/375 that has a "vacuum" issue.  Currently pulling about 9.0 inches.  I believe i should be creating around 11 - 12 inches.  It has a slightly  hotter cam than stock for this engine.  Before we dive into it, I just thought I'd ask the question of what might be the "root cause".  The cam maybe  a little.  We suspect may the intake manifold.  Could be slightly warped?not square???  What it does when it gets hot, idles down and stalls out.  Cold, it runs OK.  Anyhow, any input would be helpful before we go nuts.  Thanks guys!!

General Discussion / Defogger switch

I would like to install a "defogger blower" on my 1969 Camaro SS/RS.  Question: Does one have to cut dash, or is this already pre-cut behind the wood grain covering??  All comments will be appreciated.  Thanks guys!   Don

General Discussion / 1969 Camaro Over Heating issue
« on: July 08, 2017, 01:24:41 AM »
Hi Guys!!  Need some direction on a 69 Camaro BB that is over-heating bad.  I found the clutch fan touching back of radiator.  Corrected this, but still is HOT. Have flow in tank that was changed out during resto.  Suspect water pump may be culprit.  What is the best way to trouble shoot this issue???  All responses would be appreciated.  Thanks!   Don

General Discussion / Cowl Plenum VS. Cowl Induction Air Cleaner Systems
« on: December 26, 2016, 03:20:55 PM »
Hello everyone.  Hope everybody had a nice Christmas.  Question to anyone who has knowledge on the rare "cowl plenum" air cleaner set-up.  Is it work the cost and time to convert to "cowl plenum" system?  I've been told this system brings in more cooler air to carb verses the popular cowl induction set-up.  Would appreciate anyones thought or experience with this type of air delivery to a 396 big block 69 Camaro.  Looking to squeeze every bit of horsepower from this engine.  Thanks

Maintenance / Noisy tranny/clutch????
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:49:05 AM »
Hi everyone!!!  I just re-built my M-22 trans and is coupled with a newer Center Force Dual Friction clutch.  Put it all back together, and it making this "rubbing" or "chatter", squeaky noises.  When driving, it appears to stop for a moment.  Then it starts again.  When I take it out of gear and coast, it is still making noise.  Where do I look??  Does tranny have to be pulled again??  If anyone out there has had similar problem, feel free to chime in and advise the best remedy for this.  Hope to hear from somebody.  Thanks all......

Maintenance / Clutch Grind when shifting to "reverse"
« on: May 01, 2016, 05:36:11 PM »
Hello everyone!!  I have a question for you Camaro Gurus.  I own a 1969 Camaro SS/RS with a 396/375 engine.  Just totally rebuilt tranny (M-22)  Newer clutch assembly also.  Centerforce dual friction clutch set-up.   Problem I have is that when car is shifted into reverse, I get a little grinding on gears.  When car is cold, this doesn't happen.  Seems to be more noticeable when car is at running temp.  We adjusted the free-play out of clutch and it still tends to grind now and then.  When I put 4-speed in first before going into reverse, this seems to help.  But still, its not right.  Any clutch experts out there, any info you can shed on this issue would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for listening.......
