I deal with Steve's Camaro in San Bruno, CA  because he is local and has great service.  All he does is 67-69.  Dave

If you are not in a "smog" state taking out the vanes and plugging hoses helps.  Still looks stock.

A shaky 7.  Advancing the timing helps a little.

The 3rd picture is what was on my '68 Z that I had from '71 to '75.

I gave it up a few years back also because of logon issues.  Don't think I've missed much.  Dave

I was a member @ Team Camaro for about 10 years.  One day I couldn't logon.  Since I couldn't contact anyone on the site for help I gave up.  It's been many many months now.  I don't miss it.

I'm in the same boat.  I ran some utilities that wiped cookies.  Now I can't logon to Team Camaro either.  You can't contact them send them unless you are already logged on.

A while back they wanted members to update their passwords to be longer and include numbers and symbols.  I never updated mine so using my old password in useless.

I recently had a fuel pump from NAPA auto parts.  I was having drivability problems along with a gas smell when driving a highway speeds.  It turned out to be the fuel pump. I put a pressure guage on it and it read 9.5 lbs. of pressure.  I solved the problem by adding a regulator. I mounted it to the front of the cylinder head using one the accessary holes.

The cable core spins freely in the sheath. I had the core out right after I installed new cable when still "flickered" I lubed the core with white lithium grease from a tube (not spray).  The driven gear is also new.  It installed with no issues.  The cable is routed and secured at the factory locations.  I have ordered a used original speedo to try next.  It won't show up till this weekend.  I will follow up.  ???

I've been having this problem for quite some time.  I have replaced the cable and the driven gear.  I also pulled  the core out of the new cable and lubed it with white lithium grease.

It there a way to lube the speedo itself?  What would I used if it can be lubed?

 It's a '69 Camaro.  Thanks, Dave

The speedo is an OER repo unit.

Garage Talk / Anyone here familair with Rigby, ID. ?
« on: June 05, 2016, 06:07:10 AM »
I just got my NCRS report.  My '69 was originally sold by Ray's Chevrolet Inc. in Rigby, ID.  Today Rigby has only about 3500 population.  In '69 it must have no more than a stop sign.  Rigby is a suburb of Idaho Falls.  Any more information on Rigby would be great.  Thanks  Dave

I believe that if the console guages are factory you should have a clock in the instrument cluster in the center just above the steering column.
