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

Try taking the calipers off, and pointing the bleeders straight up.   Remove the master cylinder top, and gravity bleed the front brakes.   DO NOT push the pedal down with the calipers off.   I had to do this on serveral jobs.

Check out eBay, auto trader.com or other car sites before you make a mistake you might regret.
One thing is the car came with a six, and now has an eight.  Always remember once you buy it, it's yours.

I would say that a 1st generations parts are NOT interchangeable with a 2nd generatons.

Bill,  I'm A tall person, and the only problem I have is when I working on a truck.  Let some air out of the tires instead of taking the wheels off.  This will also be safer, and the car will be more stable.

I have never, and will not remove an engine just to change a set of heads on a Camaro.  You might want to consider removing the hood for clearance reasons.  To protect the finish line the fenders, and other areas you want protected with blankets, furniture pads, etc.  Be sure to use the correct torque specs.

Also note you have the male and female ends confused. The male end should retract, and be the top shoulder belt.

Don't want this to confuse anyone.  The shouder belt should have a male buckle, with the retractable belt having one too.  Sorry for the confusing entry. Smiley
