Thank you very much Mike and Bill for the "vacuum chrome" info.  I'm going to contact them both.    Don

General Discussion / Steering Wheel Shroud

Does anyone know if the steering wheel shrouds on 69 Camaros, had the edge of the shroud "painted" or was it "vacuum plating"???  The part# was 3939760. 
Some of the other dash cluster parts have this "chrome like" finish, on the outside edges of that part.  OK guys, give me a shout if you have any knowledge of someone who does this kind of restoration.   Thanks!!    Don

Looking for some info on headrests for a 1969 Camaro.  A guy on e-bay told me there is a company in California that restore these.  Anyone know about this company or of another restoration place that restores these???  If you do by chance, please leave word here and I'll check back.  Thanks guys..

General Discussion / Vacuum shortage
« on: December 26, 2017, 12:24:40 AM »
Hi Guys...I have a BB 396/375 that has a "vacuum" issue.  Currently pulling about 9.0 inches.  I believe i should be creating around 11 - 12 inches.  It has a slightly  hotter cam than stock for this engine.  Before we dive into it, I just thought I'd ask the question of what might be the "root cause".  The cam maybe  a little.  We suspect may the intake manifold.  Could be slightly warped?not square???  What it does when it gets hot, idles down and stalls out.  Cold, it runs OK.  Anyhow, any input would be helpful before we go nuts.  Thanks guys!!

I would like to install a "defogger blower" on my 1969 Camaro SS/RS.  Question: Does one have to cut dash, or is this already pre-cut behind the wood grain covering??  All comments will be appreciated.  Thanks guys!   Don

Would the original rally wheels (15 x 7 )  work??  I'm trying to determine what size tire would fit on these rims.  I really don't want to run the biggest tire I can.
Thanks for the input.  Anybody else, please chime in.

This size would fit using stock 15 x 7 rim without rubbing????  Thanks

Does anyone know, what size slicks fit under a stock 1969 Camaro SS body??  I will be mounting them on 15 x 7 rally wheels.  Thanks!

Hi!  Thanks for your time on commenting on my issue.  We replaced thermostat with a 180 F one.  It's a "high flow one".  I have a 1969 Camaro SS/RS 397/375
car.  Comp. ratio is 11.0 to 1.  Pretty much all factory set-up.  No serp. belts being used here....factory originals only.  It could be a bad sending unit.  I think I'll change it out just so I know what I have here.  Actually, yesterday, we installed a new "pusher fan" in front of radiator, for added insurance when car is driven.  I have a 4 core, 4 row radiator in it now.  Well, this is where I'm at Ban617.  Any other ideas will be welcome.  Thanks for chiming in.    Don

bcmiller.....My Camaro ran good last season...mid-way in the gauge.  Car ran good.  Now when it approaches the 3/4 point into the gauge, car goes crazy.  Won't idle right, shifts hard, etc.  This block is really touchy.  Major headache.......

This is to JKZ27......Heat indicator was the stock temp gauge.  Went all the way into the "RED Zone"  We are really stumped here on this heat issue.  We don't want to throw good money at this problem, and still have the same issue.  I read that article about "timing and Vacuum"......a lot of good advice here...may try some of those ideas.  Thank you to everyone who chimed in on this issue.   If you have some solid info, please post it.  I need to get my 69 Camaro up and running again.   Don

"IN" is the hose at bottom of radiator, and "OUT" would be hose at the top of radiator.

There is about a inch between back of radiator, and front of fan.  New clutch fan just put in.  We did not use a "spacer.  Nothing came in box when new one arrived.  ?
