You will need the big block crossmember, shifter mount, and shifter rods. You can get repros from Ricks and others. You will also need the frame brackets for the engine mounts.

Mine has a number 12 on my 04A SS.  I never knew about this number until I read it in this thread!
124  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LOS to VN changeover date on: January 30, 2008, 04:40:04 PM
I had read that the change from LOS to VN on the tags was a result of Van Nuys incorporating and became its own City as opposed to being a suburb of Los Angeles. Huh

The brown D309 is correct for ZL-1s and 69 L88. Both have T.I. ignition. I have brown ones and a black D309 as well, same part number. I dont know why the one is black. T.I. guys say the brown is a special dielectric plastic. The brown ones go for $175-$200. Shocked

After cam break-in, oil change, checks, and all the other stuff, take it out on the road and if everything seams ok, its time to seat the rings. The cross hatch hone pattern on the cylinders is there for that purpose. Do not baby the motor, get on it hard while rolling. Vary RPM, speed, and load. You only have a short time before the cylinders smooth out, so hammer it a few times. Otherwise you will have an oil burner.
127  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: COPO 9737 on: August 07, 2007, 03:21:04 PM
If this car has the 9737 option, it would have to be a COPO. A 38 year old Camaro could have had lots of things changed or added. The repro 140 speedo has been availible for what, 15 years? 13/16 bar also an easy add. I would think they would have looked for the ZL-2 wire hole and maybe declair it a COPO car instead. Roll Eyes It is built up too incorrectly to be a SS clone.
128  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 deluxe seat belts on: May 26, 2007, 07:14:20 PM
My 69 SS is original and has all deluxe seat belts (silver buckles) except the shoulder harnesses are standard with the black plastic buckles. Is there an RPO for this or did the original owner change out the shoulder belts to make bukling up easier?
129  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Firestone or Goodyear F70-14 tires on: April 17, 2007, 09:08:28 AM
I talked to Kelsey, they said Polyglas with no size on tire was correct for 69 SS. My spare is a Polyglas, but white stripe (04A). Is the Wide Tread and not the polyglas the correct tire for 69 SS for raised white letters? What about optional tires like PL5 (standard on SS?), PY4 (white stripe, fiberglass belt=Polyglass?). I need new tires and want raised letters but also want the correct tires.
130  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Headlight washer system T-Valves on: December 11, 2006, 08:19:02 PM
The Ys I can recast. I have 3 available now, Dave asked for 2, but I dont have any idea what to charge. I was going to throw them into the restored wiper motors. If someone wants to make an offer, just le me know.

Kevin, got my Y today, great job! Now for the check valve tees...
131  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Headlight washer system T-Valves on: December 03, 2006, 04:35:08 PM
If someone would like to sell these fittings, please let me know.
132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Headlight washer system T-Valves on: December 01, 2006, 05:23:01 PM
KevinW, please let me know when the tee's and Y's are for sale! Great work!
133  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Optic fiber vigilite lens colours on: June 10, 2006, 09:32:15 AM
I have the same book but for 69. It is a generic picuture of the lens used for all the models. Notice that the picture of the rear monitor is incorrect too. The red lens is not on the Camaros because it is used to monitor the high beams on a 4 headlite system like Chevelles. Look at any original Camaro lens (like mine) and the colors will be clear, clear, green, with only 2 fiber cables-green one to the headlites,center clear (which shows up amber) to the parking lites). Buick lenes are blue, clear, green.
134  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Optic fiber vigilite lens colours on: June 08, 2006, 05:02:47 PM
I believe you are correct on the lens colors.
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 LM1 article on: May 30, 2006, 05:18:41 PM
Great report. I had an LM1 from 1978 to 1988. It was an X11 RS with disc brakes, dual exhaust, turbo 350, 12 bolt 3.07 open, 5 leafs. Block was 386 with 2 bolt mains.
