2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / drive shaft with balancer on: January 14, 2011, 04:18:04 PM
hi,
 i have a  feb. 69 camaro coupe 307- 350th. which i bought new. the drive shaft has a metal balancer ring similar to a harmonic balancer mounted on the transmission end of the yoke which is offset to the rear yoke. i have never seen another one nor can anyone tell me its purpose . was this used for special problems associated with vibrations ? please give me as much info as possible.

thanks

rear end rebuild included all bearings and axles from randy's rig gear and pinion.
motor mounts replaced 3 -times the last with usa made from heartbeat city. all with same results. heartbeat city verified that my frame bracket no's were correct.

i will explore trying to verify my pinion angles .
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 350SS VIBRATION on: October 16, 2008, 09:09:53 AM
rich
is there specific degree of angle to look for? also if this angle is found to be incorrect , how do you correct it. i have not seen any thing offered relating to this subject. 
 william,
i have checked the no,s stamped on the frame brackets and they are the ones for a 350, also i purchased the usa motor mounts from heartbeat city, they fit tight on the brackets.

rich,
engine has a fluid damper. the engine was gone through again in feb. this year. car has original 14" rally wheels and bf goodrich tires.
the  original drive shaft had the above mentioned yokes aprox. 20 degrees out of phase. the drive shaft manufacterer told me this was incorrect and buit me a shaft in phase. later i  sent this shaft off to balance shop and had it re-balanced. rearend is stock 12-bolt and 5-leaf springs.
i have not checked driveline  angles because i could not see any way to change them.
you mentioned a beat frequency in the vibration . when i put the car into 1st or second gear and bring rpms up to 4200 plus , i get a thumping sound and feel with the vibration.

as far as the tires and rims- the rims have been checked for run out and the tires have been changed.
u- joints - drive shaft and flanges have been replaced.
this vibration appears to be harmonic coming from center line of the car. it occurs at different rpms - it is a come and go vibration getting faster as the rpms increase. 

i have often wondered if it is an alignment issue .
ie pinion angle or centerline position.

good afternoon,
i have a 1969ss 350coupe turbo 350 3:31posi gear. i have had an oscillating vibration since restoration at different rpms for about 10 years. it vibrates in console area , steering wheel , rear view mirror. engine was ballanced, plus i removed it and sent it back to be checked for
accuracy. non was found. i have changed all pulleys, fans etc. i have had  transmission rebuilt- tried 3 different torque converters, new mounts, 2 drive shafts , 2 different rear ends,(both rebuit professionally) , checked to make sure exhaust is not touching frame . the vibration is very evident at 1500- 1900 rpms- then smooths out . it re appears at about 3300 rpm on.  i guess i'm obsessed with finding a cure. my question : is there any place i can take the car to be checked for hard to find vibrations or does anyone have any suggestions? i live in georgia.
