152  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro battery on: January 24, 2007, 07:50:36 PM
Current research indicates that the side terminal battery started in late April, 1969.  I have an all original 69 Z28 survivor car that still has the original battery cables which are side terminal cables.  The B/D is 05A, 1969.  I should also point out the original side terminal cables have two different attaching bolt sizes, the positive has 3/8-16 threads and the ground is 5/16-18.  All of the repro cables are the same size making them incorrect. 

When I purchased a repro battery from the only remaining oem battery company (Ohio based), I found out that I could not use their battery.  Their incompetent answer was to install repro cables and throw the originals away.  I opted to drill out and install a heli coil in the battery terminal so I could use the original cables.

Wonder what the general feeling is for anyone who has dealt with the only remaining repro battery company.  We have found them less than courteous, and incompetent when trying to get good technical support.  They are also very expensive and offer very little discounts to other dealers.  New Castle Battery, the originator of reproduction batteries was a much better vendor to deal with but unfortunately, they are no longer in business.

They only hosed me once..... I will NEVER deal with them again !

Thank You for the picture. Most pictures I have seen aren't taken fron this angle and don't show the detail. I see your metering valve is painted black. I was wondering what the finish would be on the front hex fitting if it was umpainted? Maybe just bare steel. Thanks again four help.

The 69's I have restored were silver cad plated.

We have just received confirmation.  The Silver Camaro Concept Car will be at the Camaro Nationals.

I invite everyone to come see the car.  It looks a whole different in person.

I had a chance to view the Red one at the Detroit Autorama, not to impressed ! Ford hit the homerun ball with the stang, the concept Camaro is a sacrifice bunt !
158  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / YH wheel dates on: May 02, 2006, 11:12:52 AM
I have seen several YH wheels on Ebay that have date codes that stretch into 1970. How long did they produce the YH wheel ? The set I see now is k 1 0  6 22. When were the last 69's built ? I guess I am alittle confused about this.  Tongue

161  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: How do I remove and install the stainless drip molding on my 69? on: February 15, 2006, 09:55:59 PM
If there is anyway to leave them on and polish in place, do that.
These can be a ball buster to get off without messing up!  FORGET the urge to use pliers. I have had good luck with bumping them off with a piece of hardwood, maple or cherry work well. Make a fresh cut on a table saw so you have a good sharp edge, a 10 to 12" long 1x2 and maybe a narrower one for the curved part at the back window.
 With the windows down, and from inside the car, hold the wood block squarley on the lower lip of that moulding and start from the front working aft and tap the block with a hammer and you should get it to start rolling off. It helps to have some help holding the moulding with slight tension to ease it off as you tap, and watch your paint. If you have a helper they can use a light twist to help the moulding along, It can get alittle tricky as you work the curved section. Work slow take your time.
                                                Good luck Mike  Wink
162  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: DOOR SEALS on: January 19, 2006, 07:57:33 PM
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INPUT ABOUT NEW DOOR SEALS FOR 69 CAMARO?  THE DOOR SEALS I'VE USED ON MY LAST TWO CARS ARE OER BRAND FROM CLASSIC IND.  THE DOORS MUST CLOSED VERY HARD TO GET THEM TO LATCH.  HAVE ANY OTHER MEMBERS HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM?  DOES ANYONE KNOW  WHAT KIND OF DOOR SEALS WORK BETTER,  AND WHERE I COULD GET THEM?  I ALREADY KNOW ABOUT ALL THE OTHER PARTS SUPPLIERS OUT THERE,  WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR IS WHAT SPECIFIC BRAND OTHER MEMBERS HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK WITH  BEFORE I ORDER.   THANK YOU.

I was over at Team Camaro and did a search for the Metro seals, some good posts in favor of.

Metro"Supersoft" seals, better than Soft Seal brand. IMO. They both fit well but the Metro seals seem softer and you do not have to gang bang the door to get them to close. Wink
