I have not tried a light wheel on my car. It also has the 140 cam and 4.10's, but a close ratio trans. Even though the lower first in the trans will help my personal opinion would be no for the street. Maybe some others have used them and will have better info.

The brakes are working! Very strange finding, maybe someone can shed some light on this. I decided to start comparing brake linkage with my 69, my son's car is a 67, both cars have power brakes the 67 was drum-drum, we switched to disc fronts and changed master cyl. My 69 is a disc brake car. The push rod on my son's car was in the upper hole on the brake pedal, the 69 was in the lower hole, which the assy. manual says is for J-50 option. The 67 had a return spring on the linkage which is for manual only I believe. I figured someone along the way must have converted it to power brakes, and not put the push rod in the proper hole. The strange part is he has been driving the car for years, I have driven it also, and it had good brake pedal with the old system.
Anyway it has pedal now and stops fine.
 Thanks for all the info     Pat
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 bumper extentions on: April 02, 2009, 09:19:12 AM
A friend has a pair of bumper extentions, the chrome piece that bolts on next to the license plate. I have no use for them they are the short ones with no rubber insert. They are NOS but the chrome is a little pitted from storage. Should I grab them? Or are there tons out there?

Still locked in brake HELL. We pulled the master and re-bench bled. Re-bled all wheels twice, no better, blocked off line to rear wheels, no better. I guess we are going to try another master cyl.

Thanks
All good things to check, we'll figure it out. Gotta love brake bleading problems. I'll post the results when we get it

I understand what you are saying John. This has me real puzzled. The car is a 02 production 67, the master cyl. has Delco M cast into the case, and it has a date of H-1-6 cast into it. The master cyl is not going back on, so I put it in the drill press and drilled out the brass seat, there was nothing behind it. Assuming that someone rebuilt it and left the check valves out, how would the car have had good brake pedal before it was dissasembled? My son has owned the car for several years and it never had brake issues. I'm stumped

Update, I checked the old master cyl. which had been working fine with the drum brakes and it has no check vavles in the outlets. How can that be? I thought all drum systems had them.

My son changed his 67 over from drum drum to disc drum. While doing so he changed the master cyl. He is now having trouble with no or very little brake peddle. I reseached the site and suspect he has no check valve in the drum portion of the master cyl. Does anyone make the proper cyl? Or do you have to install the check valves yourself? The new one he bought was supposed to be for the application, I'm not sure of the brand.
   Thanks Pat

Sorry about the earlier post I meant to ask if the hubs were the same as two piece rotor hubs and or JL-8?

41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Scap old front drum parts? on: January 29, 2009, 09:37:24 AM
Are the spindles the same as the later two piece rotor spindles, and or the JL-8 brakes?

Should have stated that Washington 98550

67 Camaro coupe standard drum brakes. The car was originally a 327 powerglide, early production as I remember.

My son is swicthing over his 67 coupe hot-rod to disc brakes. He is going to toss the drum stuff. Does anyone need any of these parts? You can have them for shipping.
