571  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Replacement of lower ball joints on: April 08, 2007, 09:57:15 AM
Emanuel, I have replaced hundreds of ball joints in my career without removing the lower control arms.  This can be very dangerous if you don't know what your steps are.  I suggest buying a manual or having a repair shop do it if you don't have the proper tools.  Why are you replacing them? Lower ball joints have to be "unloaded" ( pressure taken off them) to check.  Good luck with your project.

 With more and more trim tags showing up on eBay, it's nice to know we have people like Mark keeping up with them.  I did a search and found these tags on eBay, three X-11 ($51-$303), X-55 ($150), X-66 ($800), and three X-77 ($460-$950).  I have seen X-33 tags go for over a thousand dollars.
 People buying these tags aren't framing and hanging them on their walls.  I've seen sellers in their ads call Mark and other members the "Camaro Police" when the ads were questioned.  Just be careful and do more investigating when you find that dream car.  Wish I would have.

David, look at the 302 valve adjustment article under CRG reports.  The information at the top header of this site is very helpful.

As Kurt stated, these are cars that have documentation.  If you "VIN" is not listed he doesn't have it.   Your car was one number off the one listed.

My car has a red Z with the 28 being a silver or grey color. I believe the aftermarket emblems have a white 28 on them.  You can find them on eBay.

I always use white lithium grease on the internal parts, and silicone spray on the felt tracks.  To clean the old stuff off use a rag with a solvent like brake clean on it.  Just be careful not to get the solvent on any areas that will discolor.

I live in Florida and have Hagerty with a set agreed upon valve.  Vehicle insurance is not a problem, try finding homeowners in the sunshine state.

Jerry, should my 10E car have a 660, or 661 case?     VIN number 124379N704511
Thanks,

I believe the second generation Camaro's with split bumpers were called rally sports.

Greg, thank you for your kindness.  I think it's ironic that we got beat again by the improperly restored 67 SS.
I guess it helps if you bring your wannabe "restored" classic car to a show, and help judge.
I think the next show, there's gonna be a protest.

I put my car in a local show this weekend.  I got beat by a 67 SS that had these modifications that I saw.

1. Front and rear spoilers
2. ZL-2 hood
3. 15  inch wheels
4. 327 emblems on the fenders
5. Extensive chromed out engine, and engine compartment.
6. Manual 4 wheel drum brakes

One of the judges was a  female high school student that was asked what she was looking for and she stated she didn't know. 
My question is should I have been upset, and would you consider the 67 modified?

Most cities have a starter-alternator repair shop that will rebuilt your unit.  Look in the phone book for one. If not look on the net for a rebuilder. Like Ed stated, the diodes are bad, and aren't that hard to replace.

 In the last year this has been posted several times.   Go back and search, you will surprized of the questions that are asked over, and over.   The knowledge you gain from reading  posts in the old forum is great. I suggest all the new members spend some time in it.           Wink
