Restoration / Re: '67 U17 Oil Pressure Line
« on: August 17, 2018, 08:38:48 AM »
 I can tell you that the oil line in 67 was translucent and not black. Black was used later from what I have seen.
As for fittings it looks like more than one style was used on the block and early Camaro's used a brass bulkhead connector on the firewall and later replaced with a grommet.
Here is a link to a past discussion:   http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=13589.0
I reused the original brass ends on one side but the other side broke (cracked) when I tried to open it for the new line so I used one in the Bosh oil line kit that I bought. The Bosh kit also has the brass sleeve inserts so the line doesn't collapse when the nut is tightened around the compression end.

 See reply #12 here:   http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=13762.0
I wound up replacing the fuse box with one that looks exact. No more problems !

Originality / Re: Witteck Tower Hose Clamps
« on: August 15, 2018, 04:28:47 PM »
 I have found the best Witteck repro clamps from AMK but they are not dated. AMK's have thicker bands and stronger towers whereby you don't need to use pliers to hold then while tightening. If I get ambitious I will get a set of stamps and stamp dates on my clamps.
I have some old ones to get the correct font sizes from.

Bentley...where are you getting the clamps from? I bought dated clamps (repro) and 3 out of 4 failed. Just curious who you are getting them from.

 I used the process Ed posted and it works. I had to cut through the flapper centers just enough using a Dremel cutoff wheel to split them so as to remove the shaft.

Ed,
   And the rear antenna was available as an option with AM too, correct? Your reply sort of makes it seem like you have to have the AM/FM radio to order the rear option.

 I've used just one 4oz. bottle from GM in my 67 12bolt rear and had absolutely no problems.

Originality / Re: What is the correct coil for my COPO
« on: August 02, 2018, 02:06:28 AM »
 Though not a COPO, both my 67's L35's still have their 267-BR coils.

 Neither of my two '67's with standard interior have the buzzer. I'm not sure if it came with the deluxe interior.

 My 67 04B LOS L35 VIN stamp starts with L7 instead of 7L. There was a run of those misstamps.

Mild Modifications / Re: Hone-o-drive unit on ebay...

 That looks like it would be a tight fit in the tunnel.
Seeing the sellers name 'super-novass' made the song 'Champagne Supernova' pop into my mind.
Now I can't help singing it  ;D

Not sure how to clean the crud off (maybe youtube?) but for protection I use Novus Plastic Polish no.1 . It cleans and also leaves a protective shine.

Is there something that shows the item is eligible? I am watching a few used items and added one to a cart as a test but didn't see anything that mentioned it was eligible and it still showed the current price.

If the pits aren't too deep into the surface, a machinist can cut the journals down to clean them up.
