Originality / Door hinge/window regulator grease
« on: February 13, 2024, 07:48:50 PM »
Hello all…..I’m starting to reassemble the doors on my ‘67 and the Fisher Body manual talks about all of the different lubrication points for the window regulators, door hinges, etc…. The book refers to “Lubriplate” and “Dripless oil”…….a quick google search turned some rusty cans of original stuff available on eBay but that was about it.

1. Does anyone know where to get a modern part that has superseded
2. What does everyone use on these points if they aren’t using the factory stuff?


1969 - Orphans / Free windage tray bolts
« on: July 25, 2021, 08:45:05 PM »
Don’t know if this is allowed here or not but I didn’t know who else might want ‘em.

I am going to ARP hardware on my DZ motor and I have the original main cap bolts with the factory windage tray mount extensions. Don’t know how rare they are or anything. If anyone wants them shoot me an address and I’ll send em your way.

Free…I didn’t have the heart to throw them out.

1969 - Orphans / DZ block value - 19L526842

What is the rough value of one of these blocks? This seems a bit much ($10K) for what you get.

Obviously if you need it then it is whatever you are willing to pay……..just curious if anyone knows what price they actually change hands at?

Originality / 1967 rear deck lid emblem
« on: March 14, 2021, 09:07:37 PM »
Hi all
I’m wondering if someone can point me in the right direction regarding the rear deck lid emblem on my 67 z28 “clone” (I hate calling it that because it sounds shady but that’s what it is)

I am doing a vintage road racer and it is currently in the shop for paint. Well in my mind if someone back then was going to compete they would have started with a z28 right? So I am trying to faithfully copy the original stripe details. The shop is taping the stripe around the emblems as original on 67 cars......I’m fine on the header emblem, but I have added a rear wing so I’m not quite sure about the rear deck lid.

I know wings were a dealer add on in 1967 and I’ve read that the emblem was moved or sometimes discarded entirely when this was done. Does anyone have an idea of where this was moved to if it was kept? Was that just the installers choice at the time? .....I’m not married to the idea of keeping the emblem but if it’s going to be used I want it in the right location if possible

Any ideas?

Trans-Am Camaros / Lucas Mechanical Fuel Injection

Long shot but does anyone on here have any experience with the Lucas timed run on Can-Am cars of the day.

I recently purchased a setup and have some general questions

Trans-Am Camaros / JL8/J56 or HD Service rear end setup question
« on: September 24, 2017, 02:29:58 PM »
Hello all......I'm putting together a disc brake rear end with the "fixed mount" J56 corvette style calipers. I'm shooting for .005" axle end play......I know this will require custom c-clip thickness which will change as the posi clutches wear..I'm trying to get an idea of how often this will need to be adjusted or reset on a road car. I figured if anyone would know it would be someone here. Any guesses?

-So from what I've read, Penske would change his rear end every race so no issue here...

-the lesser funded guys...How often was this checked/changed? Was the pad knock back tolerable enough to make it thru a season?

-what about the JL8 owners.....I can't see this being a "dealer service" adjustment every other oil change or anything right?

Ok thanks guys.....Tyler

General Discussion / 1st gen camaro shop recommendations?
« on: January 16, 2015, 01:44:59 AM »
Ok so I have come to the conclusion that if I would like to enjoy my '67 at some point in the next 10 years, I'm gonna hafta pay someone to do the metal work.  ;D

It's gonna for sure need quarters, trunk pan, tail panel, and probably a bunch more but I want it right....does anyone have a good shop recommendation? I'm in Southern Arizona...was considering trying AMD installation center in Georgia, and I'm willing to drive, but a little closer to home would be nice. California maybe? Anyone have any ideas?

Please help!! I'm super nervous about taking it to the local paint/body place with little or no experience with these cars.
