Tinkerr,

I can look them up in the Parts Manual for you but I need to know if you have Deluxe or Standard interior.

2102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Harmonic Balancer size? ('68 396 325 or 350hp) on: October 06, 2006, 06:17:54 PM
That's the one. Used from 1965 through 1969. All 396 (396 and 427 for the Vette) except special high performance for Nova, Chevelle, Camaro, Full Size and Corvette. Probably used on truck applications as well...

2103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 750 CFM Edlebrock on: October 02, 2006, 05:43:57 PM
Well... I've always read that you really don't need more than 650 CFM on any small block unless you plan on racing it. Heck, I have a 650 CFM on my 396 and it works just fine! (Of course, I rarely go past 3500 RPM, so the engine doesn't require anything more than that.)

That said, the original Rochester Q-Jet installed on the 327/275 and 350/295 was rated at 780 CFM, so I don't see why the Edelbrock won't work. However, the 600 you already have is just fine for the street.

One thing I've always believed in is never go too big with regards to carburetion. You'll get crap for mileage and the engine will be a pig at the low RPM's.

Well Bigb, those numbers don't seem to correspond to anything I can find, but if it's a Saginaw 4 speed transmission, it would be "correct" for your car. For 1967, the only Camaro's that came with a Muncie 4 speed would be the 350 and 396 engines. All 327's came with a Saginaw (if ordered with a 4 speed). Are there any other numbers cast into the transmission?

He told you what to do. Why repeat it?

Did you try his suggestion?

Ed
2106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Matching numbers on: September 23, 2006, 10:26:54 AM
Again, get the casting date and/or the casting number and that will tell you what engine it is.

The guy you spoke to at Rick's is mistaken. 68 Camaro 327/275 engine codes are:

EA - 3 speed or 4 speed
EE - Powerglide

2107  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Matching numbers on: September 22, 2006, 01:20:32 PM
It could be any number of engines. The "HC" suffix was used for the following applications:

1965 Full Size 327/250 4BBL Powerglide
1967 & 1968 Full Size 327/275 4BBL Powerglide
1969 Nova, Chevelle or Camaro 350/250 2BBL 3 or 4 speed

Check the casting date of the block to narrow it down.

2108  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 brake booster on: September 21, 2006, 09:36:04 AM
Dean,

In that case you need a 9204 booster.

2109  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Under hood weather stripping and decals on: September 20, 2006, 10:50:11 PM
Okay then. Looks like the seal didn't start until 68. I wonder if there were complaints...

And, after doing a little digging, I found the 69 AIM page showing the seal. Different P/N and different means of attaching.

2110  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How to track down electrical draw? on: September 20, 2006, 09:59:52 PM
You'll need an amp meter (mulit-meter), but it's fairly easy if it's one of the fused devices.

Turn the car off and remove the key. (Remember, there's a theft warning buzzer and it draws current!!) Now remove the Negative battery cable and place the multi-meter on the highest reading you can (usually 10 amps). Now hook one side of the amp meter (multi-meter) to the battery, and the other side to the unhooked negative battery cable. See what the reading is. If it's 0, then go to the next lowest setting on the meter. Continue until you get to the lowest setting on the meter OR you start getting readings. If you get a reading, you do indeed have a drain. Now remove one fust at a time from the fuse block until the meter goes to 0. What ever fues makes the meter go to 0, then this is the device(s) causing your problems. Now you have to find out what the problem is with that device.

If it's NONE of the fuses (you still get a reading with all the fuses removed), then you have a problem through the charging circuit or starting circuit. But let's see where this gets you first.

Remember, dome lights, trunk lights, underhood lights, etc... draw current so take that into consideration. Even clocks and radio memory circuits!!

Dean,

Power DRUM brakes or power DISK?

Ed
2112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 brake booster on: September 20, 2006, 06:29:47 PM
Dean,

The 8519 was used on the 68 Firebird w/disc brakes.

2113  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Under hood weather stripping and decals on: September 20, 2006, 06:27:10 PM
1968 Nova's and Camaro's used the same seal, P/N 3937126, with a note to "Cut as required" on the Nova. No listing of ANY seals for 67 and no listing for the Radiator Support seal for 69, although there are other seals listed for "68 and 69".

I looked in the Price and Accessories Schedule, and P/N 3937126 was only used on Chevrolet cars. What's really interesting is that the 68 A.I.M. has a note (#10) for the seal to "Remove backing for installation", indicating that the seal used double sided tape to apply to the support.

Someone will have to take a look at the 67 A.I.M. to see what (if any) parts were used, and the 69 A.I.M. to see if the P/N is the same as the 68.

The only way to tell that is to look at the casting date on the Pumpkin,

HERE'S THE LINK to where you'll find it.

2115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Under hood weather stripping and decals on: September 19, 2006, 12:00:59 AM
Gary,

Yes, there were actually a couple of engine compartment "Seals" that were included with the A/C option. Here's a picture of the Radiator Support Seal, but there were others as well, all listed under Group 1.270 in the P&A. I don't think these are being repopped, so unless the original is still in good shape, most people just rip it off!
