02B...Second week of Feb. 1969.  I was removing/replacing war heads/guidance packages  on our Minuteman ICBM. Ellsworth AFB, S.D. The rest of the time, it was life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. Lots and lots as I recall. Met my wife of 43 years during that time also.

Nice car but I think somebody had been huffing or sniffing the glue.

My BL restored a  really nice 64 falcon convertible. Totally factory except for the velour upholstery. Arrrrrrr.  ford guys will do most anything. Sorry about not capitalizing those "f"words.

Did the ZL1 come with the muffler configuration as in the picture above? I thought all 69 Camaros came with the cross flow muffler or chambered exhaust mounted behind the diff. Then again, I'm not fluent in all things ZL1.  Thanks.

If it'not a factory aluminum manifold, just plug up the threaded heater fitting and turn down the pressure and use sand. I just did an old Holly manifold and it turned out great.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: LUK Clutch on: May 15, 2011, 08:05:08 PM
I went with a LUK clutch & PP several years ago after 2 other napa units. The LUK has too much pedal pressure for my liking but it sure holds. As it turned out, my problem all along was a worn 40 year old TO bearing carriier. The TO was not hitting the fingers on the PP squarely causing unbearable chatter.  Went with a composite TO so no grease inside the bell housing.

I no longer own the car but it was a NOR O2B 68 396 car and it had stacks.

I just love looking at the survivor cars.  We older guys have to apolgize for those generally younger folks that tend to be negative about your car. It's a shame that this car looks to have been sitting outside. Had it been protected, It could litterly be cleaned up and left as is. It is kind of a shame to restore something that is a true icon of the 60's muscle era and has been a time capsule for 35 years. Thanks for sharing your car with us. Be sure to keep us posted and we dont care what those clowns at the other site said. I hate to admit to alliance  to some of those guys but I'm a member of that site also.

The AIM has been  reproduced for many years. I bought one probably 18-20 years ago from Classic.  It has been photo copied so many times that some pages aren't very clear. There was a recent post over on TC that had a link to a PDF copy. We've  got some serious high speed internet at work and I should just print it because the pages looked clearer than my copy. Don't know about the Chassis Manual.

check the voltage at the light with a voltmeter. What does it read?

What should the voltage be? At idle? At 2K rpm?   I think that a lot of us have the same problem and I have up graded my lights with the best Sylvanias that I could buy.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: XT wheels with trim rings on: February 02, 2011, 01:49:09 AM
There's a 69 RS/SS L78 2 owner car that belongs to a member of our club that is a factory XT car with trim rings and it looks fantastic. It's  Hugger Orange w/ black vinyl top. Mine is the same color combo and wheels but a 350. I think that your car would look great and dont paint the wheels silver or black. Keep it the factory look.

We're celebrating New Years with the best boxed wine that money can buy....... Is best and boxed wine an oxymoron?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 RS for sale on Ebay.... whats wrong with this car on: December 31, 2010, 10:31:36 PM
I especially liked the welded on exhaust tips. That must be why is is only a concourse restoration  and not a concours. Still way nicer than my car ever thought about being. But I'm like many of you and actually drive mine occasionally. Speaking of drivng, I got caught in some wet snow a few weeks ago at a local car show/toy run with several local clubs. I felt for the guys with the rat rods. No wiindshields, no wipers, no heaters but they were loving it. The Camaro will have to wait till spring to get cleaned up.
