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.......
