General Discussion / 69 ssrs 396 w ac front springs
« on: July 18, 2023, 04:45:37 AM »
Sure this has been asked and answered many times but can’t seem to locate what I need.
Would like to put in new front coil springs. Afraid that whatever I order will make the car look like a lift kit was installed. Has anyone with a similar car bought aftermarket springs that were the correct dimension and strength to give the correct height? According to the charts a 69 camaro 396 HA, HB and HG spring was the same part number. 181 lbs and up. Why give it different I D numbers?
Thx in advance

General Discussion / Engine compartment wiring
« on: February 25, 2023, 09:24:47 PM »
Too many years, so many wires…….
I have 396, turbo 400 with AC
Anyone have a picture of
1. Where to route the compartment wiring…above wiper motor or below.
2. How the kickdown wiring ties into the wiper motor
3. Finally where does the thick pink wire go with female connector

Thank you

Trying to get engine back in camaro. I had AC fan and wipers not working. After a bit of investigating, it appears that the firewall harness was bad.
I replaced it and all is now good! However, In poking and probing inside the car I must have pulled a brown wire out of its home.
Was hoping someone has a harness they can look at and let me know where the brown wire in the attached picture should be plugged into.
If you can send a matching picture that would be great.
Thanks in advance


General Discussion / 69 396 driveshaft markings
« on: March 01, 2020, 09:20:23 PM »
I did a search and only found one reference to driveshaft identification markings for a 69 396 driveshaft.

“I have a photo of a TH-400 car showing Orange,(Front) Green,(middle) and white (rear).”

Can anyone confirm that this is indeed correct or point me to an article or publication that does?


General Discussion / big block lift brackets.

Anyone have a pic of a 396 showing the location of the back lift bracket?  Not clear to me where it mounts.


General Discussion / 396 oil gauge line routing and fittings
« on: August 07, 2019, 08:10:41 PM »
Posted this under originality with no responses, so thought I would try here. Thx for your help if you can.

I see this was discussed back in 2016 but with seemingly no final conclusions. Does anyone have a pic of the original set up for the L35? Looking at the aim page 416.  Should it utilize the bracket #8? Is the line shown between that bracket and elbow #5 a metal sleeve with the nylon/plastic hose routed inside or is metal portion carry oil??  Thx for revisiting the subject.

General Discussion / BB curved neck radiator
« on: September 14, 2018, 03:04:29 AM »
Apparently me asking for information to obtain a radiator is a classified ad. So, instead I will try a new approach.
I ordered a Harrison curved neck radiator from HBC. They called the next day to tell me that they could not get a core made...any idea what that means? I know they make repo radiators, so where do those cores come from? Anyone know if Harrison is still in business and actually makes these radiators? If not, did they just recently stop production?
If anyone has faced a similar situation during a restoration, I would appreciate hearing how you resolved your radiator quest.
Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / EBAY Z11.....Z10
« on: May 23, 2017, 03:37:04 PM »
Surprised nobody has mentioned the Z11 on ebay, that is really a Z10. The owner "somehow" got the wrong trim tag?
Hopefully you have logged both Z11 and Z10 tags as well as the vin.  Is there any info on these cars?

I am not finding a lot of info on the correct part number for this application. Could someone help?
I have seen claims bolted as original, crimped as original, weep holes, no weep holes, some will have dates, some will not.... on and on.

Thanks for any information/clarification

General Discussion / 69 camaro repo fuel tanks
« on: October 10, 2012, 12:51:52 AM »
I have asked around a bit and gather that the "SPECTRA" tank is a good quality manufacturer of replacement tanks.
I have also heard "AMERICAN RESTORATIONS" makes a nice one as well.
Please post if you have purchased and installed the American Restorations tank and let us know what you think of the quality.


Decoding/Numbers / Engine Stamp
« on: January 30, 2012, 08:24:01 PM »

Do these numbers look correct to you guys? Font, location etc.
It is from a BB pacer on Ebay.

Font looks funny for date stamp especially?

I have been reading past posts about fuel tanks. Just like to hear what the latest opinions are on which tank would be best to use for a correct car.
Thanks in advance.
