Restoration / 1969 AMD quarter panel
« on: October 26, 2020, 04:21:53 PM »
Somewhere I read that after market 1/4s lacked the correct detail where 1/4 meets tail panel. That was described as not having a slight recess looking straight on from the rear next to where tail light would be. The panel kinda dimples in there on originals. Can someone tell me if the AMD 1/4 has the correct shape? Or, any other Differences a AMD 1/4 deviates from factory steel in appearance? Thanks CRG.

Can someone help me de-code the engine stamp on my 1968 Camero 396 please? First 7 of the stamp are T0823MW. Research shows the MW is an L35 325/396, but I did not find any info on the first 5 digits. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to site. Hope you find everything you want to know about 1968 CAMAROS. The site really does not any information about CamEros, as you claim to own 😉🤦🏻‍♂️

Perhaps a plausible formula could be this: there were 22,339 SS 350 Camaros made. Out of the 243,085 total 69 production, this is just over 9% of total prod. are SS350s. This could be further broke down between convertible vs coupe (just a guess, but perhaps, 3% vs 6% respectively). Multiply that % X  monthly total for Norwood for that given month and a pretty close approximation could be determined, I would say.
I cannot recall for sure, but I believe Pace Cars are part of that SS total and may have to be factored out of total Which may affect % I use for monthly estimations slightly.

I love the "302 is a FORD engine comments" those are priceless.
That’s why that Ford “Caution Fan” decal a Chevy deteriorates it turns into a Ford just prior to a scoop of rust😂

Welcome! Let me just say that the carb will be or has the potential to be more complex a problem. Most advice given in this forum will be based on the assumption that the stock equivalent cam is installed. But a larger duration cam could cause more carb problems. If idle is that high, the idle slots by the throttle plates could be uncovered causing the main circuit to render the idle circuit ineffective. Also the power valve can be dumping fuel if the vacuum is low. There are carb mods to overcome these conditions, but hard to say how to proceed without knowing what cam you have?

1.94 valves will give better street performance. Roller rockers will most likely not clear stock valve covers. I’ve had bad luck with flat tappet cams of late eating lobes. Go for a roller

Are you sure that it is a SS396?  The 1st Yenko’s ordered were X66 and Olympic Gold was one of the colors. Perhaps you should post up the VIN? Or let more experienced guys on this site evaluate what you actually have?

Little off topic. I have heard the best plug is NGK. I can’t seem to find a number to cross over though?
