they will fit just fine, but they are not 1969 correct.

This picture is of earlier refills from 1965 with the dots, but the backbone would still be the same for 67 - 69's.

Just scanned ebay, there is a NOS set as a "buy it now" for $29, or you can make the guy an offer, and get an even better deal. Auction #160917044917

Hard to tell from the pictures, but I don't think those are correct.
Originals had a "skeleton like" backbone - those look to be a solid metal strip?
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Gardner Exhaust Rusting from the Inside/Install Stainless? on: December 27, 2012, 12:41:05 AM
The Gardner system has problems - unfortunately if or whenever there is a problem with the product it is never their responsibility.  At 3 times the price of the other available systems you would think that maybe they would make SOME effort for any manufacturing defects.

Nope you obviously mistreated the system.
But I guess you are good now because they have told you NOW it won't rust - just like they told you the last time.  LOL

Before you spend any money for Gardner's VERY VERY EXPENSIVE exhaust system.
read this ---> http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=168582 the trouble started on page 3.

Have you looked at the systems from D&R - A great system at a great price. www.drclassic.com
Every bit as original for 1/3rd the price.

if you really need stainless, then try these guys ---> www.waldronexhaust.com

34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is correct "grey tip" oil dipstick for 1968 small blocks? on: May 22, 2012, 07:55:54 PM
I started to notice a pattern after a while - all the "M" sticks were the round handles.
All the "E" sticks were the flattened curves.
The "E" sticks came in two versions also - - some with color coded tips, and some with squished flat ends.  - -

There were W's and circle B's  - - there were a few more markings that I have seen....
Those are the manufactures designation code - I would think???

I believe they were all being used interchangeably - - the wording on the sticks is what was consistent from year to year.
Also the length, and full markings - remained constant for the different applications...
As the GM recommended oil quality changed - so did the wording on the sticks.

Yes - I got to know a lot of dip sticks over the years Grin

That is not a "dimple" dipstick.  just a funny bend.  See below for a later stick with Dimple....
The writing on the stick looks perfectly correct to me.
the shape of the handle is not what I typically see for 68 SB, but i would imagine that more then one or two vendors were making those at the time.

That looks like a correct 1968 stick to me...
36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 radiator fan on: April 25, 2012, 12:42:19 PM
Except that a clutch fan on an SS-350 would much more likely to be original equipment on a HD cooling car.
If I saw a clutch fan on a standard cooling car - I would be more suspect to the originality.

My 69 SS-350 has HD cooling with an original 7 blade clutch fan. I believe it to be completely original to the car.

Kurt, remember you pointed that out to me when i first got my car - I did not originally believe a clutch fan was possible?
After close examination of the dates on Radiator, fan clutch, and fan blades - I was convinced.
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1967 exhaust tip - picture of original on: April 22, 2012, 01:23:02 PM
Yes - They make both sides - said they make them with the flats as original, and also with no flats for better flow.

look here ---> www.drclassic.com

5 blade Camaro fans have steel blades.
The 4 blade fans don't really have "blades" - the unit is steel stamped in two parts and riveted together.

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 radiator fan on: April 20, 2012, 08:17:07 AM
So from reading the article a 69 pace car without AC and with a 350 should have a 4 blade fan and not a clutch fan?

Unless the HD cooling option was ordered - there were a good number of SS350 cars that had a clutch fan.
Check your radiator code before assuming...

A friend sent me a few pictures of an original NOS 1967 exhaust tip.
He is now making his repro tips exactly the same.

LOL - - That looks like it could have put out a fire...
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hood insulation on: April 03, 2012, 09:35:51 PM
I always assumed it was fire suppression - -if an engine fire began the insulator would melt and smother the flames
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original radiator cap? on: April 01, 2012, 01:09:47 PM
No reason at all.  Lots of versions of those Rad caps.
AC on one side - AC on the other side - Sometimes they even forgot a circle or two.
Sometimes the logos are upside down or angled - Really it was just a mass produced item with a lot of different variations.

Nice cap John - -I love the deep stampings on a gently used original...
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original radiator cap? on: April 01, 2012, 09:16:26 AM
No - the earlier cap had a hollow rivet - there may have been some overlap in 68 but typically the flat rivet is 69 and later.
see 67 cap below...
45  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: Is there a market for a '67 6cyl engine? on: March 25, 2012, 01:48:20 PM
A lot of power boaters like to use 6cyls because they can be mounted close together, Two 6 Cyl's take just about the same space as a V8.
You get 12 for the space of 8...

put a craigslist ad - -can't hurt?
