Originality / Pressure Regulator Factory Application/s
« on: June 05, 2006, 11:53:28 PM »
RPO-L48/B3 is the only place within the 1969 Assy Manual that lists the use of this pressure regulator.

Therefore, I was under the impression that only L48 350s had this fitted as shown.
A friend tells me any Camaro with front discs/rear drums use one as well. -Then why is it not in the RPO-J52 chapter?

Was it only the L48 optioned Camaros of 1969 that have this regulator? If not, what others?
Thanks. ;)

Your garage.. cool! 8)
Was it a Chapple conversion? Do you know the date when it was sold new?

And yes sorry, it was the Philippines I meant.

Any idea of the whereabouts of that Sydney-bound Camaro today? Is it in a registry somewhere?

Also, I would be fairly sure it was onlly one of a handful to be exported here. Could have been for a GM executive or even a GM test vehicle.
I do know of a 67 that was brought out here, converted to RHD and sold as "new".. in 1971.

Also, weren't there 67 Camaros sold new in Singapore? -only with 6 cylinders?

Here the cowl & panel hole piercing page of my 1969 assy manual.

Item #8 points to the "B" hole's location.
The description is RPO M20, but nowhere can I find it within any of the RPO tranmission chapters or even UPC 12.  ???

The 5 leaf springs and 12 bolt are a sign in the right direction.
The plate for the exhaust hanger is not unique to SS or Z28 cars. Basically any Camaro ordered with the N10 dual exhaust will have this, but still a good sign.
The power window/convertible wiring probably just means the auxilary power is used from the horn relay, via the firewall mounted circuit breaker that convertible power tops more commonly use. I don't know why he had to switch harnesses though. The A31/CO6 reproduction wiring and circuit breaker is readily available.
Front disc brakes?
Anyway, the 140mph speedo, big block heater box are easy bolt-ons and the body/firewalls are no different for any engine including 6 cylinders.. Not definite proof without the original engine I'm afraid.

Part #9.. a seal?

If it is the seal, you may wish to try and make one. I haven't found any really good, usable ones after 35 years of deterioration.

The "A"-hole (hehe) appears to be correct for the U17 console oil gauge.
The "B" -hole is one of the M20 hole locations and should be 0.920-0.940" (~15/16") in diameter according to my 1969 manual. However, I cannot find anywhere within my manual when this speedo location would be used.
The "C" -hole is the regular production speedo cable hole.
