2326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 RS/SS oil pressure line routing? on: October 23, 2005, 04:41:17 PM

For anyone working on, or restoring a first generation Camaro, I recommend at a MINIMUM the following manuals (see the pictures of the covers below):

1. Factory Assembly Instruction Manual (AIM) - This is the book the factory used to assemble the car!

2. Body by Fisher Service Manual - This is a book dealerships used to fix any part of the car assembled by the Fisher Body plant (basically, from the firewall back).

3. Chassis Service Manual - Another book used by the dealership. This one's for mechanical parts (engine, trans, etc...).

4. Chassis Overhaul Manual - This book was used in conjunction with the Chassis Service Manual by the dealerships. It shows how to rebuild mechanical parts (engine, carb, etc...).

5. Console Gauge and Headlight Wiring Diagram Manual - I'm not sure where this one actually came from, but if you have a console (with gauges) or your car is an RS, it's definately required!

6. Alan Colvin's "Chevrolet by the Numbers, 1965-1969" - THE book for decoding casting numbers, engine numbers, transmission numbers, etc...

7. The Camaro Owners Manual - It came with every car off the assembly line. Invaluable!

The above are available reproduction and are around the $20.00 each. You can get them from just about all the Camaro vendors.

There are other manuals you should get if you're hardcore about this, but some of these are VERY difficult to find:

1. Chevrolet Parts and Accessories Manual (P&A 34) - This shows EVERY part number used on your car! (Comes up on ebay once in awhile. Expensive if you can find one.)

2. Chevrolet Illustrations and Special Information Manual (P&A 25) - Used in conjunction with the P&A 34 above, it shows all the parts in an "exploded digram" format. (Again, this comes up on ebay periodically, and again, expensive if you can find one.)

3. Dealer Parts and Accessories Price Schedule (P&A 26) - This is a Dealer only item that shows prices and part numbers, as well as what other model the part was used on. (Rarely comes up on ebay, but snag one if you can. Prices vary with the years covered. Most are from 1946 through 1973. Find one from 1946 to 1970 if you can.)

4. "Camaro, Untold Secrets" by Wayne Guinn - VERY interesting reading for prototype and racing only parts. (Available from just about all the Camaro vendors)

5. "Camaro, 1967-1969 Fact Book" by Frank Incremona and Dr. Murrell Dobbins - Old, but still a GREAT reference book. (VERY difficult to come by, but I see them on ebay once in a great while. Prepare to spend a few $$$ on this one!)

6. "Camaro Restoration Guide" by Jason Scott - Has inconsistancies and errors, but still a good reference book. (Another Camaro vendor item)

7. "The 1967-1968 Camaro Reference Book" (or "The 1969 Camaro Reference Book") by John Hooper - Again, has inconsistancies and errors, but still handy to have. (Camaro vendor item)

8. "Camaro, Chevy's Classy Chassis" by Ray Miller - Another old book, but still has some great info in it. (ebay)
9. "The Definitive 1967-68 Camaro Z-28 Fact Book" (or "The Definitive 1969 Camaro Z-28/SS-396 Fact Book) by Jerry McNeish - Both EXCELLENT reference material (Camaro vendors should also have this one)

There are more, but this should get you started!

You should get a copy of the 1968 AIM. It has all the hole piercing information in it, including the location of the tube for the oi pressure gauge.

The first picture is of the piercing locations on the firewall. The oil pressure gauge line hole is number 5A (U17). It's located just to the left (as looking from the front of the car) of the wiper motor. The second picture shows the grommet and the line locations (Observe "View C").

Hope this helps...

Okay, got it. Thanks Chris. And, as a matter of fact, to get to this page, it says "Page created in 9.568 seconds with 18 queries". This one was a bit slow, but there have been other times a LOT slower. In the same range as your 31.213 seconds. Glad it's not just me!

Thanks. Where exactly do I find the Render info?? Bottom left? Bottom right??? And what does it look like?

My OS is Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2 (with all the latest updates), and my browser is IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 (at least that's what it has under the "Help" button, "About Internet Explorer".

Is it me, or is anyone else having (for want of a better word) "slowdowns" when changing pages or going to and from different threads? Sometimes I click and it goes right in, and other times it takes up to a minute before the page changes. I'm running fiber optics (5mb) so I KNOW it's not my connection speed! And it doesn't happen on other forums. Just this one.


2331  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Members from old forum version please post here on: October 19, 2005, 07:04:09 PM

I started in the VERY old original Camaro-untoldsecrets forum as "ed_bertrand" (which, by the way, I still reference once in awhile!!), then came to the "new" CRG forum as "ed_bertrand". Had to re-register with this "new-new" forum, but unfortunately, it wouldn't accept my "ed_bertrand", so I became "bertfam" to match all the other forums I'm registered in!

2332  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Please help decode on: October 18, 2005, 09:40:06 AM

The Tailshaft number is just a casting number and has no real meaning other than indicating a Powerglide Tailshaft used from the early 60's through the mid 70's.

2333  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Please help decode on: October 17, 2005, 10:14:54 PM

For 1967 the "YY" code front spring was used on 6 cylinder convertibles WITH A/C, Base V8 convertibles WITHOUT A/C, Base coupes WITH A/C, Coupe AND convertible 327's with Powerglide and A/C, and Coupe AND convertible 350's with powerglide and A/C. For 1968, the "YY" codes was used on Base V8 convertibles without A/C or Special Performance Suspension, Coupes WITH A/C AND Special High Performance (327 or 396) exec 4-speeds or Special Performance Suspensions. However, the 3905571 number doesn't show up in my books, but a 3905577 does as your "YY" code for 67 and 68. Are you sure about that last number ("1")?

The transmission numbers show this as a Cleveland built powerglide, assembled by the day shift on July 10th, 1968.

Ditto on the re-register. Glad to have the forums back! Good job guys.
