I think the "drifting to the right" is from back in the day when most roads were two lane with a crown in the center to drain off water. Four and more lanes today don't have a crown, think a banked NASCAR track. The book settings are from 1969, a good alignment guy should be able to recommend settings that will work with your car on todays roads.

In my previous post I didn't mean to imply my car is all over the road, just not as precise as todays cars with radial tires. It is still way fun to drive...

17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 15" Trim Rings on: October 22, 2013, 01:18:10 PM
I have searched and found out there were three designs for the 15" trim rings. The first is with the 4 outside clips, then 2 designs with full circumference internal clips. I would like to find out what date were the 4 clips were used till, and what is acceptable for Legends Judging. My car is a 5A and has 2 of each style? Thanks.

You would want the full weight of the car on the suspension before the upper and lower control arm bolts are tightened. There are serrations on the ends of the bushings that will bite in place when the bolts are tightened.

After my frame off, where everything is tight and aligned right. Using the Goodyear’s, you kind travel in the general direction of where the front end is pointed. It certainly not like any new car of today but that is the fun part of driving a car that is 44 years old.

The noted damage is interesting, wonder if the broken motor mount had anything to do with putting the car in the water.

Did you try Camaro Specialties? Last time I was there they had a pretty good selection of singles and pairs of heads,   http://www.camaros.com/

Those were my pictures of the ball joints. I boosted the boots from the Classic Suspension ball joints and installed them on my originals. Thought I could find some replacements later, doesn't sound like it.

You might ask the seller to take the heads out and get them checked for cracks before you make the trip. Offer to pay for the check as you would do this any way and you might save the cost of the road trip.

I think these guys are the suppliers that everyone buys from for the good stuff.

John, Do you have the extra port on your vacuum fitting for your "driving set up" on your car?

Just one of the original rotors on my car was drilled. The other had this paint mark on it. A local electric motor repair shop should be able to balance your rotors if needed.

From what I found on the interweb the Bendix part # PRT1213 is a one piece rotor. I have not seen the repop two piece rotors sold separately yet.

John, thanks for the great information and insight into the world of Corvette judging.

My question now would be who is the current leader in Camaro judging, and is there an “available” published standard that we all could use as a reference when restoring our cars?
