I'd sure love to spend a day just going over a survivor car like this, documenting and seeing what "just off the lot" looked like. Enjoy!

General Discussion / 1968 SS 350 motor
« on: June 15, 2018, 03:13:39 AM »
I'm looking for any quality images of a 350 CID from a 1968 Camaro (preferably manual). I've searched the forum and net, haven't found much. My set up has a power brake booster, power steering. If anyone had some can you post them here? Thanks for any help.

General Discussion / Kick Panel Speakers - spacer
« on: May 25, 2018, 05:45:22 PM »
Hello,
I'm going to install some kick panel speakers this weekend, using an aftermarket replica stereo, in my 68. I've sourced some 4x6 speakers that will fit behind the original style speaker covers and the hardware I'll need. When looking at the 68 AIM it also shows spacers being used (I assume to help with vibration of the speaker and so as to not crush in the speaker cover with the screws) but I haven't been able to find them, or even a picture of them, to know what the material was, what they looked like, widths and depths, etc.
I've found part #'s in the 67 and 68 AIM of 3899809, 3899810 and 3899811 so I assume they are different widths on the spacers. But those part #'s don't show up on any searches I've done. Has anyone ran into this before, found a good solution or material to substitute, etc? I've searched multiple forums and google, nada. Any help or direction is much appreciated.
Everyone have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend. Thanks

General Discussion / Fan spacer 3857041
« on: May 09, 2018, 07:07:53 PM »
I've searched through the forum and wasn't able to find any posts regarding this issue. I am trying to put back together correctly a 1968 350 for my car. I have gotten the spacer 3857041 and the correct 4 blade fan, along with the correct water pump and pulleys. My challenge is finding the right length OEM set of 4 bolts to hold this all together. I purchased a set on ebay and they seem to be about a 1/4" too long (they were our of a fan spacer 3927794). Both are pretty close to the same length according to the research report on CRG, but they won't work. They bottom out at the end of the threads on the water pump.
My question is, what length of bolt should I be looking for? I couldn't narrow it down by looking at the AIM for bolt 9425299 (couldn't find any size info) or is there a problem with my mount on the water pump that the end of the bolts aren't passing through to stick out a slight bit on the back side?

Thanks for any help. I posted the subject line as is so maybe easy to come up in a search later on for someone else. Shane

General Discussion / Delco Booster
« on: March 15, 2018, 01:30:01 PM »
Sorry if this has been covered, but read through many threads to find this answer. On the Delco boosters, was Delco Moraine stamped into all of them? Or were there some that were OEM boosters without the logo. I have a booster on my car, dated in April on one tab and 9079 on the other tab, but no logo on the booster front. So don't know if this is correct. Thanks for your input...

General Discussion / 68 L48 Harmonic Balancer
« on: February 20, 2018, 09:32:55 PM »
I've read through all the posts, and online info, I can find and haven't really found a confirmed answer. I'm looking to get an original harmonic balancer for my 68 Camaro. I'm having rebuilt and install a 1968 350 CI to put into it. I've looked to try and decipher and find a correct harmonic balancer. I've narrowed the part number down to 3896966 (I think), but as I search that part number I see many variations. Can someone point me in the right direction of what I should be looking for to differentiate a 67/68 balancer from a 69 (as far as I can tell by what I've read they are different even with the same part number). There are a bunch for sale on Ebay, but some say they cover from 67 to 74, some say 69 to 74, some say 67/68 and I don't know enough about them to know for sure which one I should seek out. Thanks for any input.

General Discussion / 3923239 SB Dipstick
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:12:53 PM »
Hello,
Does anyone have a good source to find a repop of the correct gray tipped dipstick for a 68 Camaro 350 SB, #3923239? My car did not have the original engine when I bought it, but I have located a 68 350ci that has the correct MS code for my 4 speed car, just not numbers correct but I believe that to be long gone. Have been trying to source date code correct parts when I can for the engine rebuild to eventually happen, but this item seems to be pretty illusive. Been looking online for over a year with no luck on the selling sites, and as of now I haven't been able to find a reproduction version so wanted to know if anyone knew of a source, or am I just out of luck on this detail? Thank you for any help and Happy New Year to the Forum.

General Discussion / Pitting on intake
« on: December 04, 2017, 04:11:30 AM »
Can someone give me their input/expertise on this manifold. It's correct for my Camaro and I have the correct carb for it as well (I'm goin to put a date correct 350 in it), but as I'm not a very experienced mechanic, is the pitting on the manifold going be an issue where the carb and water neck mount? And if so, can it be fixed? Or will I need to find another intake? I know that there is a fix to plug the two extra holes, I'll do that, with either brass plugs or a 3 gasket set up I saw online. I'm just wondering if it's worth the effort given the pitting that is present. Thanks

General Discussion / Choke Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-jet
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:52:56 PM »
Question regarding chokes, and I thought I'd seen a string on this before but I can't relocate it. I have a stock Quadrajet carb for my car, 7028213, and I also have a NOS choke kit for that carburetor. I had purchased a Edelbrock Performer RPM Q-Jet intake for rebuilding a 350 to put in my car. When I mount the carb onto the intake, the NOS kit won't work/reach from the platform on the intake to the linkage on the carb for the choke. I then purchased the choke kit from Edelbrock (1931) and the choke rod won't work/reach.
Has anyone ran into this, options of another kit or rod to use? I'd like to stay with the NOS kit and keep it looking as original as possible, but not sure that's gonna work. Any help or input greatly appreciated. Thanks

General Discussion / Parts manual and numbers
« on: November 21, 2017, 10:56:01 PM »
Could someone point me in the right direction as a source for a parts number book for first gen Camaros? I have the AIMs for all the years and they give some information, but on some areas not a detailed breakdown. I read posts where others reference very detailed info. on parts and availability for certain year cars and I'd like to find a resource like that as well. I see different CDs on ebay, but just not sure what is the right/best source. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much and happy Turkey Day.

General Discussion / 68 Washer Pump
« on: October 31, 2017, 04:55:09 PM »
Hey guys, I searched through different posts and couldn't find an answer. On my 68, the rubber plunger inside the washer pump has a big hole in it so it won't spray. Gotta fix this to pass safety on my car...ugh. Anyway, I've looked and found two options, but not an expert on which part would fit my 68, since that pump is different than other years and I'd like to keep it original instead of replacing with a new washer pump. Is there someone who rebuilds these that anyone knows of, or do it myself? If I do it, does anyone know of a place to buy a replacement part? The only one I could find was on ebay: part # 4918445 (I don't have a parts catalog to tell me if this will work, and the AIM only lists the entire unit). Or should I buy a used one, there is one on ebay, and scavenge the parts off of it I need? Thoughts and input greatly appreciated. Thank you

General Discussion / Horn Restoration
« on: October 24, 2017, 11:08:38 PM »
Does anyone know of a company that I can contact about repairing/rebuilding/restoring my set of horns that came off my car? I'd like to keep the date code correct ones to the car instead of buying repo. I searched through the forum, but didn't find any posts on this topic. One is bent up pretty bad and will need some work to reshape (if that is even possible). Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks

General Discussion / 68 grille color
« on: May 30, 2017, 05:22:19 PM »
Hi all,
I have read through many different strings on grille color, and I interpret that mine should be black. But can someone tell me what type of black?

I am installing a new grille on my 68 camaro, it will be badged as an SS. So the grille color should be black according to what I've read here. My car has a build date of 07A. I am going to attempt to paint myself, I can find flat black and ultra flat black on HBC. But not sure what flat black. Can someone assist with what color black it should be? Thanks.

General Discussion / Seat frames
« on: February 17, 2017, 10:11:54 PM »
Just trying to decipher all the different posts about seats, looking at restoring my interior in my 68 Camaro. Are 68 and 69 front bucket seat frames the same? I have a friend who has 69 bucket seat frames with hear rests, and wants to get rid of them. They need recovered, and I'd buy them and recover them with 68 deluxe seat covers and new foam. But not sure if the seat frames for the 69 bucket seats could be recovered with 68 deluxe seat covers and foam. Thanks for any input.

General Discussion / Grab Bar
« on: February 13, 2017, 09:35:30 PM »
Newbie here, still learning. I've gone through some of the search strings and didn't really find an answer, but did 68 Camaros come with a passenger side grab bar? Or was that only factory installed in 69? And just added on by dealers/owners themselves in 68s? I like the look of the grab bar, but when I research purchasing one they all state for 69 Camaros. I see it in the AIM for 1968, but the kits I see for sale all state 69 and have different looking spacers for the back behind the dash than what is in the AIM for 68. Thanks.  Shane
