Originality / Coil Spring Confused
« on: January 31, 2018, 01:45:39 AM »
I'm installing a big block in my 68rs. Not sure if I installed correct front springs. I've referenced the 69 chart.

http://www.camaros.org/images/pages/chassis/69_spring_chart.pdf

I did the math just like the example. Came up with the same springs "HA".

But why does the 396 coupe listing start off with EY, YH because the lightest weight 396 is adding more than

133lbs?     I'm I missing something?

Awesome chart. Iím seeing YS springs as part of F41.
My 68 has speedo piercing for Saginaw transmission
So it could have come with Base 327 or L30?
The man I purchased car from did say he stripped
The 12 bolt rear end.

Originality / YS Coil Springs

I replaced the front springs on my 68 rs today.
Installed HA. The code on the old springs is YS.
I couldnít find any info on them. Is this the
correct code for base 327 and manual transmission?
I believe this car was a base 327 and manual trans
from the factory. Thanks in advance.

I'm planning on driving my 69 SS this year. Santa dropped off a set of new
wheels and tires.

 Anyone have any thoughts or advice on building a 396
small block for it?

Thanks for the advice. The 68 currently has a six cylinder radiator and no shroud. So Iíll purchase both of those for big block. Wanting to start off with 350 engine first because Iíve got one thatís race ready.

One thing I've learned is rare doesn't equal desirable. I own a 69 ss with rare MC1 3 speed transmission that nobody is interested in.

Iím thinking about installing a 350 smallblock, th400 and 12 bolt rear end in my 68 rs for drag strip duty. Later on the smallblock probably will get changed over to a bigblock. My question is should I use bigblock motor mounts on a smallblock with a th400 crossmember and th400 driveshaft? So when I change over to bigblock nothing has to change, except engine?

I dropped the fuel tank on my 05c Norwood 68 rs last summer to repair pin holes and there was a piece of paper attached to the upper side under one of those tar strips. It was degraded so bad I threw it away. Couldn't make out anything. Now I'm thinking I should have hung onto it. Anyway some of the paper is still attached to the tank, and it's still leaking so next time I drop tank I'll post some pics.

Maintenance / Re: 69 RF brake lock up?
« on: January 29, 2017, 05:19:50 PM »
Hi Jim. Have you made any progress? I was having similar problem with my 1997 GMC truck and thought I'd share how I fixed it.
One rear wheel cylinder was leaking. So I replaced both. Brakes worked fine until the humidity got really high or during rainy spells.
That's when barely touching the pedal right rear would lock up. After the humidity and storms passed it would go back to working fine.
I thought it might have something to do with the brake fluid that had been absorbed into the brake shoe. I switched the shoes from one side
to other side. Sure enough during the next rain the left rear would lock up barely touching the pedal. Replaced both sides with new shoes.
Haven't had any issues since.
