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?
32  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

33  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...
35  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.
36  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
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 radiator fan on: April 21, 2012, 03:35:05 PM
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.

38  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...
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1967 exhaust tip - picture of original on: April 19, 2012, 07:44:30 AM
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...
41  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
42  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...
43  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...
44  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?
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original radiator cap? on: March 25, 2012, 05:24:22 AM
Yes - That is an original cap. The rivet is perfectly correct for that month.
The hole was probably drilled by someone who attached a safety cord?

Nice cap - -should clean up very easily....
