General Discussion / Re: Drop of oil at the steering column boot

If the car has an automatic transmission there is a good chance that it is transmission fluid coming up the cable. On the 350 and 400 transmissions you would need a new seal in the speedo adaptor and be sure there is not a groove worn in the speedo driven gear where the seal rides. On a powergide be sure the speedo gear adaptor has a seal, some do not have a seal. If it is a manual transmission it is less likely to be the speedo adaptor seal but still possible.

I'll check that.....thanks!!!

On my 67 I keep a piece of a wee-wee pad under the oil gauge in the console and check it from time to time. If it leaks then the pad will absorb it instead of the rug. I get to it by removing the shifter bezel.

I'll do that.....thanks for the idea.

It almost had the consistency of motor oil....hence the oil line suspicion.

You would think if the oil line was leaking I would be able to see / smell it.....ehh...whatever.  There's no oil on the carpet......anywhere.

I'll have to keep an eye on it...thanks.

Interesting......i was vacuuming out my 69 Camaro and i noticed a drop of oil was on the steering column round boot that meets up with the plastic firewall guard.  I have console gauges and looked at my nylon oil line, but it looked leaks...

Where would the oil come from?  Any thoughts?

If it’s an automatic / console car then I would check the adjustment of the neutral safety switch.

It's been hexed, has the Ford caution fan sticker stuck on its shroud.

That and upside down cowl induction hood seals.......drives me absolutely nuts!!!!

Depends on the condition of the internals.  If the gears inside are gummed up, you'll have to take the unit apart (carefully w/o breaking the hour / min / sec / faceplate) and let it soak in naphtha over night and blow it out very lightly.  After that, burnish the contacts on the rebound / wind-up spring mechanism then apply 12V to it and see if it works.

After all that and it doesn't work, Id throw in the towel and either look for another clock or get a repro, which looks spot on, but the second hand motion is smooth rather than stopping at every second.

Good luck.

Originality / Bumper Jack Color

OK....I've read that the jack mechanism and base are painted a semi gloss grey.

I painted mine with 1605 Krylon Dove Grey, but it looks too dark....

Is there a correct paint out there??  If so what is it exactly?

Jerry says its a semi gloss grey....that's great, but what shade?

What a joke...


So William, what you suggest is that during the time the N66 was available (November 68),  the jacking instructions were the same as the Rally Wheel....??

I was wondering what jacking instructions were pasted under the trunk lid of Camaros with SS / N66 wheels built in Nov / Dec timeframe.

I know there were different instructions used after 8/69 build cars with N66 for the late 69's...

I was an active judge in the Ncrs and was a level 7 judge, the reason I got out and bought a Camaro is because of all of the responses above, you vette guys have ego’s and think you are better than others, your nothing but a bunch of pansies and do nothing but feather dust those plastic cars. I can count on one hand the normal vette drivers, and one of them is John Hinckly , oh yeah, he has a survivor z28 as well”

Gotta love that response!
