1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67-69 Bumper Jack Design on: March 28, 2015, 02:27:19 PM
Between this post and the old post there will be a lot of really good information.  What would it take to make this a "research project" and get all the information together?  I'm sure it would be a lot easier for everyone to locate the correct information.   

2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 camaro keys on: March 14, 2015, 10:13:46 AM
I bought the "repro" GM key blanks (correct markings, etc) for a 69 Camaro E and H code.  With the original door lock cylinders the "repro" H key has the groves that are not cut far enough in the blank to work.  The key will not insert all the way in the lock.  If you look at a real blank vs the "repro" blank you can see the difference. 

Another "repro" junk part.

3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 Backup Switch Harness Clips on: December 27, 2014, 04:30:44 PM
I am looking for a picture (maybe part number, tracing, etc) of the clip shown in the 1968 AIM M20 A7.  This is the clip for the backup lamp harness that is installed in the upper position with a bell housing bolt (3/8 diameter).  It does not have a part number in the AIM so I assume it was installed at the engine plant. 

I have the lower clip that mounts to the lower transmission mount (shown as item 2 p/n 2404001) and it has a 1/2 diameter hole for the larger transmission bolt.  The harness is retained with these clamps (5/16 OD).

A picture, drawing (tracing) or any information would be helpful.

Thanks and Happy New Years

4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 14 x 7 Trim Rings on: January 28, 2014, 02:11:06 PM
Did the factory original 14 x 7 trim rings (Rally Wheel SS) or SS with Trim Rings have the 4 retention clips or the gripping teeth around the outside of the ring?  If these were changed during production from the retention clips does anyone know the approximate dates.  I know they were 2 3/4 inches wide and had the oblong valve stem hole.

I find a lot of information on the 15 x 7 Rally Wheel Z28 but not the 14 x 7 SS and I am only interested on the 14 x 7.

The repaint looks great.  Did you make the paint stencil or is it available for somewhere for purchase?

6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Window wiskers or felts, & mice on: December 14, 2013, 02:08:33 PM
I also bought the "best available".  Maybe the same as your "best available".  The ends were sheared off and bent.  Luckly they could be straighten and the had to be cut off anyway.  Instead of trying to peen the ends I used 3/32 stainless steel rivets.  The fit in the holes and can be removed easily from the rivet post.  Then I glued them in place.  Look pretty good.

I went to put them on the car and the clips would line up ok (except for one quarter panel).  The car has original sheet metal.  The problem is none of the holes for the screws line up.  I compared to a set of NOS and the holes don't line up with the NOS set.  The NOS would fit the factory holes in the sheet metal.  Making them work took a lot of time. 

I guess that is what you get from the repro industry.  Do some real searching before getting "best available".

7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / L78/L89 Intake Manifold Gasket on: November 03, 2013, 04:01:52 PM
What is the best intake manifold gasket for a stock L78/L89 that has a blocked heat passage.?  I looked up and maybe Felpro 1211 with stock size ports or Victor Reinz has a nitroseal with the stock size ports.

I ordered A.I.R. parts from them.  Incorrect parts sent.  Long wait for "correct" parts which was still wrong (same as original incorrect parts).  Insulting response from them on the whole deal.  After loosing money on shipping two times I will never deal with them again.  Take your business elsewhere.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / DIfferent Pinion Nut on 12 bolt on: May 13, 2013, 12:51:37 PM
I have a 69 Camaro SS 350 with original 12 bolt rear end.  I recently replaced the pinion seal.  I noticed the pinion nut (right side) is different than the normal pinion nut (left side).  The nut is zinc plated flange nut with serrations on the bottom.  There was no washer under the nut.  It i[is 3/4 inch tall and 1 7/16 inch diameter (same diameter as thick nut normally used).   I reused the nut that I had marked.   I don't think any rear end work was done on the car as it has been in the family since new.  Does anyone have a part number on this different style pinion nut?
I've used the Attach: function to try to get the picture online.  If this doesn't work will someone tell me how to include pictures. 

10  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Heavy duty GM 12-bolt axles on: April 27, 2013, 12:45:24 PM
I have a NOS set of the HD axles.  I measured the machine portion where the bearing would be.  It measures 1.40 inches.  I don't have a bearing to measure the ID so I can't compare.  I had planned to use them in the late 60's on a stock class drag race Camaro. 

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / AX coded Mirror on 1969 on: April 13, 2013, 09:15:21 AM
I am the original owner of a 02D 1969 Camaro (SS 396).  The outside mirror is marked B-AX-9.  I understand this was supplied by Ajax Mirror and has a February (B) manufacture date.  I know the mirror is original to the car.  I have found that Ajax was a supplier for GM in this time frame. 

Does anyone have a mirror with the same markings (B-AX-9)?  Are there any Donnelly Mirror (DMI) mirrors with 2-DMI-9 markings?  I assume they ran out to the primary supplier mirrors (DMI) and used the Ajax (AX) mirrors.

Also are the insides the same as the Donnelly mirror.  I assume the Ajax mirror has riveted posts like the Donnelly mirror.  My Ajax mirror has a loose head. 
I have a NOS DMI mirror with incorrect date code.  Is the correct Paragon Corvette number for the dated glass 2013D priced at $12?

Lots of questions.  Thanks
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Heater Delete Cover Cement on: December 30, 2012, 09:48:08 AM
I am looking for information on the 3899878 Cement-Plastic Seam (item 67a on C48 Heater Delete in AIM).  There is a gap to seal.  Does anyone know the composition of this or if a good substitute is available?  I guess I could use the 3M ribbon black sealer but would like to know about what is really correct.

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: is this factory/heat shield on: November 17, 2012, 09:33:56 AM
Does anyone have the part number for the good FelPro insulator gasket for a Holley carburetor?  It is for a stock 302 z28.  I can find the gasket for a Quadrajet but not for the square bore Holley.  I would like the tick .300 gasket.

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1111267 z-28 Distributo on: June 20, 2011, 01:07:41 PM
I purchased the TI kit and distributor for a 68 Z28 I had back in 1968.  I ending up selling the z28 and it has been used on a 69 396/375 since it was new in 1969   It works well.  The kit as an early kit and you had to watch getting water in the amplifier.  It never happened to me however.  I guess I am lucky.  Later versions of the kit changed the amplifier and wiring harnesses to fix the problem. 

I really never tested it against the stock point ignition.  So I don't know if it gave me any performance increases.  It starts fine with the TI ignition.  If I wanted to re-curve the distributor and change the vacuum advance I'm sure I would pick up performance.  The way I drive the car it works fine.

Thanks for the information.
