Mikefam,I would recommend Gardner to your 1st gen Camaro for sure!It fits good on my 68 convertible and sound good,(not loud).Check there website and call then up they are good people.

I put mine on the back seat behind the passenger seat that I move all the way forward.It just fit.If nobody seats in the passenger seat I fold it fwd as well to give a little more leg room to my toddler.You need to shop around to find a small baby car seat as they come in different sizes.Also I had to install a tether anchor on the back seat divider,there are some holes already there so you don't have to drill anything.
Hope that helps

24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / front end noise on: September 11, 2009, 11:30:34 AM
Hi everyone,I have a grinding sound when turning front wheels at slow speed or turning when stopped.

I greased the whole front end twice during the summer.I don't see anything loose or worn out rod ends etc.

I suspect steering's a power steering.any suggestions what to check next or how to check or adjust steering box?

thanks in advance.

Side drop-down panels have been replaced with the quarter panels and trunk floor should be fine.
I think it's engine related if you stand next to the car with engine running specially in a garage it's stinks. Huh
I will check the carb again and timing as well.
How do you install a bushing to limit the centrifugal advance?
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: smelly exhaust gases on: May 27, 2009, 08:32:12 PM
Good question,if I remember right I had hard time pushing some of the grommets in and I ponctured some of them during installaton of firewall insulation pad.That might just do it couldn't it?
Floors are fine.What do you mean by side drop-down panels?Kick panels?

what timing do you suggest ?

thanks for your reply John.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / smelly exhaust gases on: May 26, 2009, 12:59:14 PM
Hi guys,need some input here,exhaust gases smell smell pretty strong on my 68 the point that myself and other occupants in the car still stink like "bad exhaust smell" after riding in the car even  after just a short drive.There is no blue smoke coming out from exhaust pipe.

Here's my set up: 327-210,bore .030,40 000 miles since rebuilt,compresson all within 15psi ,mild cam I believe its a tp 236,new r45s spark plugs 035 gap,breakerless stealth edition electronic ignition in original distributor(engine use to smell with my old ignition accel system),Vacuum advance to full vacuum,new plug wires,
original carb 2gv (rebuilt),original intake manifold,original exhaust manifolds,Gardner exhaust sytem.

Where I live we need to pass an emission test to license your car.Wich I pass.Here's some numbers:
On Driving test,Hydrocarbons PPm 183,carbon Monoxide % .22,Oxide of Nitrogen PPm 771
On Idle test,Hydrocarbons PPm 711,carbon Monoxide % 1.25

Since then I adjusted the carb richer now the engine idles better and the smell is not as bad as it use to be but still bad.I don't think I can go any richer.

what timing do you recommend?

any suggestion?

thank you.
