I am glad to see you picked up another project Lloyd.


Thanks James, there is an introductory post about the new project on TC, Restoration Corner forum.  
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 RS Headlight Bucket Shim on: April 24, 2015, 12:14:47 PM
I'm trying to locate information on assembly line correct shim(s) used on 1969 Rally Sport headlight buckets. There is a related CRG topic dealing with a 1968 RS however the thread does not specify if 1969 RS shims are the same or if there is more than one size.  Are they zinc or manganese phosphated?

Would sure like more input on finishes.

Joe, typically only the shifter levers housed in the shifter body have moulded rubber bushings.

Anyone?

here you go

Rich, would you measure and post the length of the caps please?

Lloyd, would love to hear more about your latest project!

I will do a post on the new project soon Tim.

Gold Star Bentley, thank you.

Is this what the original bolts look like? (I suspect the finish would be manganese phosphate rather than silver zinc or silver cad)

I am reviving this thread as there are a few unanswered questions.  I recently purchased a 22,000 original mile 1969 RS/Z project and it appears the engine, transmission and diff have never been out of the car. The car did have a few Day 2 bolt ons including a flex fan, ACCEL large format coil, headers, traction bars and a Hurst Competition Plus shifter body.  The shifter rods and levers that were included with the aftermarket Hurst Shifter assembly were in a box of parts that accompanied the car and were never installed. Instead, the original levers and rods were used, except the long reverse lockout lever to bellcrank rod had been removed (fortunately it was in a box of parts retained with the car).  I have attempted to summarize the information on finishes/plating posted to this thread however the items in bold have not been well defined or confirmed, so input would be appreciated:

1. 3138 Shifter Body - Silver Cadmium
2. Shifter Rods (all) - Zinc (dark grey) Phosphate
3. Reverse Lockout Bellcrank - Zinc Phosphate
4. Reverse Lockout Bellcrank to Subframe Bolts - Manganese (black) Phosphate?
5. Shifter Body to Transmission Adaptor Plate - Sliver Cadmium
6. Shifter Levers 1-2 and 3-4 - Yellow Zinc (or Cadmium?)
7. 5769 Shifter Lever - Reverse - Zinc Phosphate
8. Shifter Lever to Rod Washers - Silver Cadmium  
9. Adaptor Plate to Transmission Bolts (2) - Manganese Phosphate or Silver Cadmium ?
10. Adaptor Plate to Transmission Large Screw - Silver Cadmium (?)
11. Shifter Body to Adaptor Plate Bolts and Washers (2 x 2) - Manganese Phosphate ?
12. Shifter Rod to Shifter Body Lever (threaded) Buckle - Silver Cadmium or Zinc Phosphate ?

Regarding Item 6 (Shifter Levers 1-2 and 3-4) I have never seen these levers in other than Silver Zinc. I understand later production Z/28s may have used Yellow Zinc - would like some input on this . For Item 7 (5769 Shifter Lever - Reverse - Zinc Phosphate), I have only seen the reverse lever in Manganese Phosphate not Zinc Phosphate - would also like input on this.

I recently purchased a 1969 RS/Z project car that at some point had headers installed. The reverse lockout rod was disconnected and the bellcrank unbolted from the frame likely to deal with a common pipe interference issue. All the original exhaust hangers remain and almost unbelievably the reverse lockout bellcrank was left dangling...for how long I don't know.  I want to reconnect the bellcrank to the frame and need to know which bolts are correct. Please post a photo if you have original bolts.

James, hope to be able to check low mileage 69 Z tomorrow but this one is from a late 10D NOR Camaro that we owned and was sold but still in the family. Has the +

Chick, if possible please note the Part Number and if its ink stamped or impression stamped into the barrel of the solenoid, Thanks.

Lloyd, yesterday looked at a 06A NOR Camaro that had original paint and was a pretty neat car (un-restored) and it had peaked blades.
Bill's car is 03D!

Thanks Chick, based on very limited data it seems the peaked style TRICO blade continued to be installed on Camaros as original equipment (Norwood and Van Nuys?) until at least early June, 1969.  I would be interested in hearing from others with original wiper blades.  
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: TRICO Wiper Blade Design Changeover in 1969 on: March 09, 2015, 09:16:51 AM
The exact same blades (not arms) were also used on '66-'67 Corvettes.
Agree John but I think those used in 66/67 did not have "made in USA" stamped in.

On Corvettes, the "Made In USA" stamp (on one end of the peaked holder) started in January, 1967, and was phased in on BOTH ends by the end of the model year.

John, for greater clarity, do the wiper blades on your Z/28 have the "MADE IN USA" stamp on both ends of each blade?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / TRICO Wiper Blade Design Changeover in 1969 on: March 05, 2015, 07:08:01 PM
From my review, 1968 Camaros used a peaked style TRICO brushed stainless wiper blade stamped MADE IN USA (Photos 1 & 2). As best I can determine this peaked design carried through into the 1969 production year however at some point Chevrolet switched to a bevelled design (Photos 3 & 4). Does anyone have information on when the bevelled design came into assembly line use?
