General Discussion / Reproduction consoles for 68 Camaro
« on: May 02, 2018, 12:50:45 AM »
Some feedback would be appreciated from those that have purchased one. Are all the holes / threads positioned correctly as per originals and do they all come from the same factory or are some better than others?

Originality / 68 camaro with console floor shifter
« on: April 30, 2018, 10:11:42 AM »
I was checking out the correct way via the AIM to mount my floor shifter to the tunnel after purchasing a second hand factory shifter. In my AIM, the picture shows it being held down with 3 bolts. My shifter has 4 mounting holes. I noticed in the 69 AIM it's held down with 4 bolts. Is my shifter wrong for 68 or was the same shifter mounted differently between both years.

I've found this one that Ecklers sells:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Camaro-Floor-Shifter-Cable-Assembly-With-Powerglide-TH350Or-TH400-33-186177-1/183135870051?fits=Year%3A1968%7CModel%3ACamaro&hash=item2aa3bf9c63:g:eFEAAOSwfaBar8M1&vxp=mtr

Grommet looks pretty close to the one in the photos posted by Bob. Has anybody bought one of these cables to give us some feedback on the quality as they're not cheap. Ecklers have a note below the description which may explain the situation with the change in grommet style:

"This cable fits all Camaros from 1968-1972 and this style of grommet was on the cable from the factory. This cable was replaced in 1973 with the same style cable with a triangular shaped grommet which screwed to the floor with three screws. If the cable broke in your Camaro, it was replaced with this later style cable and is not correct for 1968-1972"

Originality / 68 Camaro TH400 with console shifter cable

Looking at buying a GM NOS cable 3956765 which is apparently correct for my application. The issue I have is that the grommet has 3 holes around the perimeter which I guess is for screwing it to the floor. Is this right as the assembly manual doesn't mention it being screwed to the floor?

Cool. Thanks 169INDY. As I said the repo ones look nothing like this and I can't find an NOS one anywhere. Anybody out there have a nice secondhand one for sale?

Could someone please post a photo of or link to the correct shift lever that bolts to the selector shaft on the side of the trans. The ones for sale that are supposed to be correct, differ from seller to seller, so I'm not sure which one is right.

Restoration / 1968 rear axle brake lines
« on: September 23, 2017, 07:31:07 AM »
Bought a set of these from a vendor that are supposedly mandrel bent to original spec. Tried to fit them on the rear axle and they are atrocious. Even after trying to tweak some of the bends, they are not even close. Can anybody that has bought a set and is happy with the quality and fit, please let me know where they purchased them.

Could anybody verify if all BB Camaros had the double baffle pans or only certain models?

General Discussion / GM 6223 crankshaft stroke.
« on: September 08, 2017, 05:53:45 AM »
Need help from some of you experts out there. Has this crank got a 3.760 or 3.766 stroke ? There's a lot of conflicting info out there as to what is what.

General Discussion / 68 Camaro 12 bolt pinion seal installation
« on: December 01, 2014, 01:38:23 PM »
Was reading my service manual regarding installation of the the pinion seal. The seal I'm using is an original GM 3924031. It mentions the use of a guage to go between the seal lip and housing. Does anyone know the thickness of the guage as I don't have access to one ?

As mine is a 396 with TH400 the part number given to me for the mount was 3872247. Not 100% sure as there is that many part numbers for these mounts with different applications. Done web search for your number and still nothing available.
