You might also disconnect the wiring and soak it over night in Evaporust. It has done some amazing things with no damage to paint and finishes in my experience.

Well its a 69 body, and assume real cowl induction so maybe a pre-release December 1968 photo. Can't blow it up enough without distortion to see the side running engine displacement let alone the fender emblem.

Over a year ago now we reset every password on the entire AutoGuide system and sent email notifications to the emails on file for all accounts. What we have found that many Team Camaro, Team Chevelle, Team Nova members had changed their email accounts and providers over the years but never updated their accounts to reflect those changes, and therefore could not use the temp password to login and set a strong password.

Really not a big deal to reconnect your account. Send me a PM here with your TC screen name, birth date or old email used and your current email account. I will confirm your account details change the email on file for that account, send a password to it and done.

Kiwi - Send me here, or have Byron PM me over at TC your Team Camaro screen name and I'll look up the email address all updates and security notices go to, if its no longer used by you I can reset the email account to your current one, and send you a new password.


General Discussion / Re: 1967 Tach original vs reproduction
« on: August 10, 2017, 05:57:47 PM »
John - I think IMHO cosmetically all the reproduction Tachometers (CHQ & OER) are very good facsimiles of the original AC/Delco. I have several 69's and the colors are good matches, the finishes are best possible. The obvious difference is the embossing of the rear shell with the CRG or OER brand-mark. AC/Delcos were unmarked on the rear, often just rubber stamped with a date code. 

Mechanically I have not seen any difference on my 69 with vs. the AC version. I know some folks claim they HEI worked driving a reproduction tachometer with no conversion or filter, but I have no experience with that.

Soaking in evaporust will remove the rust... THEN you can clean and clear coat...  :)  satin...

X2 on the Evaporust. Love that stuff.

Camaro Central has nice American made ones, great color match and tough stitching, Distinctive Industries makes a beautiful one, in fact the one I like the best for reproduction boots. PUI also makes them, as does TMI, in original and mod styles.

You can also have a local upholster make a custom one not using the factory style clips. There is a thread over at Team Camaro where someone had one made that uses no clips or alterations to the pinch-weld molding. I have also seen ones where marine style canvas snaps were mounted on the molding to replace the factory clips.

Like a lot of people - I only use my factory one for photos, and the reproduction for when in parade mode or someone is sitting on the boot. The Vaseline is a good tip. I don't have my pinch-weld molding on at the moment so clips are mute for me.

John - Nice to see you up and about the boards again. Hope all is well.

Yeah I agree the font looks wrong on the center mounted fuel gauge.

1967 there was only one printed circuit gauges included.
1968 there was one printed circuit board for regular and one for tic-toc-tach installations.
The harness went through the bulkhead connector and came out as a brown wire up by the coil.
You can extend that to your ignition box and connect it to the legacy tachometer port since old tachometers can only work with GM HEI or need to on a legacy port and or use a tachometer filter designed for old analogue tachometers.

Restoration / Re: Stripping paint from '68 console gauge cover?
« on: May 23, 2017, 02:44:42 PM »
Going to sound weird but soaking it in a crock pot of soapy water on low and slow heat will release the paint and hopefully not be hot enough to warp the plastic. Or just try soaking it in a bucket of hot soapy water, changing the water often enough to keep some heat or leave it in the sun all afternoon.

You can bench or semi bench test your LFW Module. You need a potentiometer capable of zero to 100 Ohm's, and if out of the vehicle a test light to act as the FUEL warning light. (battery operated test light is easier)

When triggered by low Ohm's the module drops ground onto the yellow lead so the bulb which always has power, then has a path to light up.

To test the LFW Module in place by dialing down to less than 10 Ohms (eighth of a tank.) if there is no ground on the yellow wire at that point lower toward zero and see if you get the ground on the yellow activating the light. Make sure you have power on the bulb lead and the bulb is in good order as well.

AS with many GM parts there were a couple suppliers so there can be a variance in color and stamping but that looks good to me. Shake it and if it sounds like a slight rattle (mercury moving inside the capsule) then it is factory. :)

Maintenance / Re: Heater control cable adjustment?
« on: January 03, 2017, 05:52:00 PM »
Just to rule it out I would also double check that the cable in question is the correct one (length) for that slider. Double check that the sheath tab is secured in the right location as well.

I have a NOS set someplace for a 69 I can measure if you need.
