Cheesy

We are now ready to take orders for shirts.  I have posted info in the "News" box in the upper right corner of the forum page and provided a link there to shirt info and the ordering link.  We will keep the ordering link active for two weeks for the first round of ordering.   After two weeks we will then suspend the link, purchase the shirts to print on, print them, and then mail.  Remember, we are doing this at cost so we are operating this way to keep from going into the red.  Please be patient.  As requested we are using Paypal.  You can use this even if you do not currently have a Paypal account.

Ordering link: http://www.riversedgesoftware.com/CRG/

Only a few days left to get your shirt(s) ordered if you want one.  It may be next summer before we do this again.  Here again is the link to use to order:

32  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Vacuum Advance - Converting to Full Manifold Vacuum on: October 05, 2013, 12:01:54 PM
Leave it on manifold vacuum, set your idle above the "whistle" point, and drive it.
Well, there is one other piece to the puzzle that I haven't told you (sorry for holding back).  With the stock return spring, the carb doesn't always like to return to idle - it stops just short of the idle speed stop screw.  If I blip the throttle or pull the gas pedal up with my toe it goes  back to a nice idle.  It only does this with the engine running, and when the engine isn't at full operating temperature (but not running on the choke).

Could too much vacuum at idle be trying to keep the throttle plates open?  I hate to throw a stiffer return spring on it because I'm worried about premature wear on the throttle shaft bores.



Jeff, a couple things come to mind on the throttle return issue.  Plates may be sticking on carbon build up inside the carb throat.  Does the car have a dashpot?  I think you mentioned you have A/C on the car so if the AC is on the dashpot holds the throttle open more.

Do you know if the shirts used are pre-shrunk? Usually that will determine which size to get and expect to fit after the first washing.

Thanks!
Mike

Yes, pre-shrunk 100% cotton.  If you are on the borderline between sizes I suggest going with the larger size......but it is your call.....no returns.

Have received final approval from GM.  Putting finishing touches to a web site and paypal button for ordering.  Printed up a couple of shirts to wear at the auto fair.   I will let everyone know when we are ready with the paypal.

Dave,

Try some Loctite super glue.  Professional liquid.  Got mine at Lowes.

Steve

I have a corner broken off of my 68 grill center. Broken off in three pieces. What is the best adhesive to repair this plastic?

Thanks........Dave


37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 SS L78 Stripes on: August 12, 2013, 10:53:20 AM
Can someone tell me if this the norm or could it have been in any configuration.

1968 SS L78 (Original mileage 9977 & original paint)

D90 stripes configured in the following fashion.

Nose and to the front of the wheel wells is painted.

Drivers side, rear of wheel well to door is a decal and door is painted.

Passenger side, rear of wheel well and door are decals.





Passenger side is correct.

Steve

Thanks, where did you get the info to confirm this and should the drivers side be the same? I will look at it again.

My original 68.  Yes, driver should be same as passenger.

I researched this some.  My parts history book shows the 3772532 wire clamp was to be substituted with 3704912 starting November 1969.  The October 1, 1967 P&A 34 shows 1964-1968 all (8 cyl) clamp unit 3772532.  The October 1, 1970 P&A shows 67-70 3704912 for all 8 cyl.

Up date.  We have received tentative approval from GM for the shirt/design.  They gave tentative approval to the digital design sent to them but require an actual sample shirt to be sent before they will give final approval.  There wasn't any existing art work for the CRG design so the wife created it from scratch.  Finding the font was difficult but she finally got the right one.  The rest of the design work for making the screens is completed.   Need to make the actual screens needed for printing next.  She will then print and send sample shirt.  Hopefully, the approval turn around will be fast.  I know we were shooting for spring on this but as in so many new endeavors it has been slow.  Hang in there........we will get this done.

43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Eaton Fan Clutch, but is it right? on: July 13, 2013, 10:44:43 AM
I am having my engine rebuilt and the mechanic said that the oil leaked out of the fan clutch while the fan was sitting out. He said it must be replaced now.  Cry

My car is perhaps 60-80% original. I am trying not to reduce that number any further. So I checked CRG and saw the photos of the original Eaton fan clutchs, comparing them to mine. Someone at some time painted mine black, covering any potential stamps. However, the name "Eaton" is stamped into the metal. It looks just like the CRG images, minus the finish and ink stamps.

Is there another way to know if this is original other than ink stamps? Should there be a stamped in part number? I understand that they can be rebuilt, but the names I saw referenced were posted years ago. I am not sure what the best way to proceed is.
'

Exactly how did he determine it was bad?  Some fan clutches have been observed with the Julian date / year with a part number stamped on the waterpump mounting flange.
