1111  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 Camaro Front Coil Spring Replacement on: August 02, 2006, 07:51:37 AM
NOT recommended, NOT safe, but I have in the past compressed coils off of the car, and strapped them using wire. Then inserted in the car, and cut the wire. Not always having the right stuff, we improvise.

I used a sheet of cardboard, over the studs, and trimmed to the spoiler base. Then laid it out on the trunk and punched, then drilled the holes. Took a little time, but it worked well. I have been told there is some variation (minor) in studs on the spoiler.

1115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / fuel inject my 307 ? on: March 28, 2006, 09:33:11 AM
I have a plain 307 pg, with the original 2 bbl setup. I am looking to improve performance without overspending, and with as the original engine. Have any of you converted your small block to modern fuel injection? I am considering a junkyard system, so my questions are: What would be the best system for my 307? Which components do I need from the donor car? What additional components will be needed?

Thanks in advance,

Check the info on this site:
There is a lot of info on brake swaps, and other 1st gen topics

Good luck,

Thanks John,

I don't expect much, but might as well take a look.

Any tricks involved? I have popped one side loose, but just put my foot through the floor trying to pop the passenger side. Would the build sheet be in any specific area, or "somewhere" on the bottom of the seat? I can pull the drivers side up part way, and don't see anything there. I would love to know what I have.

Thanks John!
1120  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Possible Axle swap on: February 03, 2006, 06:56:12 AM

Thank you for the assistance. In your opinion, could the 3.90 be acceptable for an occasional use crusier if it had an overdrive tranny like the 700r4 or the 2004r? As best as I can tell there is nothing special about my Camaro, and I do not forsee a perfect restoration in the future.

Might be a dumb idea, but the price is right, and I would like a posi.

Thanks again,

Don't need or want a 411, but I would like a posi. Just picked up a newer 350 truck block to build, and might stroke it. I am going to swap the glide for an overdrive, just not sure which one yet. I was hoping the 411 carrier could accept a milder set of gears. Reason I ask is It's been offered as trade for a junk benz I need to dump.

I'm more interested in the fold down seat than the 411.

Thank for the help,

1122  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Possible Axle swap on: January 26, 2006, 11:31:10 AM
I have been told of an available original 411 posi 12 bolt for my car. What should I be looking for if/when I get to check it out. I'm not thrilled with the thought of 411's at least not with today's gas prices. If I get the rear what ratios can be swapped. Mine is a 69 base 307 PG with I believe the economy geared rear.

Same person also may have a fold down rear seat, besides the seat itself, what else is needed to convert to the fold down?


1123  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Camaro How many left. on: January 08, 2006, 07:08:50 PM
sounds like a project for somebody. Document the most obvious diffs between the originals and the re-pops. There must be loads........

Have to disagree about Honda junk, my 91 Accord is still running strong at about 220,000 miles(oversize tires underdriving odometer by about 10% and 200,000 on the odo). Maintenance has been extremely rare. 3rd set of brakes, 3rd set of tires, lots of lof's not a lot more than that.

1125  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 69 Z/28 Front disc brake upgrade on: November 16, 2005, 07:45:32 PM
Dave Pozzi (old forum) had a whole web page of info re brake swaps with other GM brake systems of the same era. Not the brand new high tech stuff, but still a whole lot better than drums. Not sure its still there, but its worth a google.

Good luck
