1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Recommended spark plugs for H.O. ZZ502 Deluxe. on: February 14, 2015, 03:24:44 AM
Hey guys,

I installed a GM ZZ502 HO crate engine in my 69 Camaro.  It has a Holley 850, and sadly, fouls out spark plugs quickly.  The 502 came with the AC Delco rapidfire #4.  Is there another spark plug that will fit and possibly work a little better and not be so prone to fouling?  I was recommended the Bosch 7956, as it is supposed to be a hotter plug and will help burn off the oil and help keep from fouling.  Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Steve

L78 Steve, resend it.  If the pic was usable, it was placed in the lineup.  I am fresh out of 67's, but still have 68's adn 69's in the lineup. 

To all you guys, if you have sent in a pic and NOT seen you car yet, please let me know.  I try to make sure EVERY pic sent is shown.  There have been some that were just not usable, but not many.  So please let me know, and if you can, resend it and tell me what an idiot I am for not posting your Camaro pic, and I will gladly apologize, and get yours in there asap.

Thanks,

Steve

so, it's not a green bulb or type of cover, it's a green strip on the end of the lens.  Will have to check mine out and see what I have there, as mine shows a white light. not green.

Thanks.

Does anyone have a pic of what this green lens is supposed to look like?  My original lens is white and looks out of place when lit up next to the green gauges and green radio.  Was this green lens or bulb cap cover used in any other car other than Camaro?

Hey, where are all you 67 Camaro owners?  I really could use a 67 pic for next month.  ANY pic of a 67 Camaro sent to me is the 67 Camaro of the month for February.  ANY CONDITION is fine by me.  Primer, rust, bondo...it's all good.

If I don't get one, I post a pic of a 67 FoRd or ChRyslEr in its place.  Don't test me....I'll...I'll do it...I mean it.




6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Is there a difference between a factory posi and dealer installed posi for 1969? on: January 27, 2015, 11:42:17 PM
My Camaro rear axle ID code shows it to be a non-posi.  However, my unit has positraction installed.  It is the factory numbers matching rear end, so I am sure that a positraction was added.  My question is, was a dealer installed posi unit the same as a factory or was it different?  What type of unit did GM sell over the counter and/or who was the manufacturer(s)?
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Is there a difference between a factory posi and dealer installed posi for 1969? on: January 27, 2015, 05:24:05 PM
If I opened the differential cover, would there be a noticeable difference?  If so, can someone post a pic showing this.  If it was a dealer installed posi, which is what I am pretty sure I have, what "brand" would it be?  (dana, eaton, etc.).  What did GM give you over the parts counter for this upgrade?  Any other info that would be helpful in this would be great. 

I currently have an original PG rear in my 69, but with a posi in it.  I have what also looks to a lightly tapped "D" under and offset from the axle stamping, and wondering if that means anything, or might just be a dink on the tube that looks kinda sorta like a stamping.

Hey guys,

Just doing a little begging.  Send in your Camaro pics for the home page.  The first Camaro pic of each year I receive will be the Camaro of the month for February.  Send in your pic regardless of how nice your Camaro is.  In fact, I would like to see a few not so perfect Camaros in the lineup.  Remember, your Camaro does not have to be a show car...it only has to be a Camaro.  So send in a pic of your bondo box or rust bucket or not so nice paint.  I am sure I am not alone when I say there is a certain allure to a Camaro that looks like it just rolled out of a barn. 

So send in your Camaro pics today.  February is around the corner.  Also, I am looking for the months after as well.  So submit your photos and I promise, you will see it in the coming months.  If you have a particular month you want your Camaro posted, let me know...we can make it happen. 

Send photos to:  sdkar@bellsouth.net

Thanks,
Steve

I know these may not be car related, but I have searched everything and everyplace I could think of, and I am stumped.   The heavy cast iron is gorgeous and I wish my exhaust manifolds looked this good.  Anyway, I am turning to my Camaro buddies to help me solve this mystery and allow me to sleep better.  Some mysteries just have to be solved.  BTW, they were asking $5 for the pair.  looking back, I should have bought them.  Maybe I will go back and get them...why, I have no idea. 
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What are these? Mystery item at pawn shop. on: September 09, 2014, 03:01:25 PM
Found a pair of these at a pawn shop.  May not be car related but I am wondering if anyone can give a hint as to what they are.  The are cast iron, and pretty thick and heavy.  No markings other than what is shown here.  Any ideas?
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ebay ad for a big block Z11 car.... on: September 09, 2014, 02:58:42 PM
If they were original quarter panels, the holes for the louvers would be present.  Same for the lower rocker molding mounting holes. Where are these?  I doubt someone would bondo over them or cover them up for any reason.  Thus, I believe these panels were replaced.  Otherwise, the holes would be there.   The door sag plates are missing in the door jambs.  The radio wiring is a disaster and could he not take a second to re-bend the parking brake lever?  Is that gold paint under the white paint on the fender indicating a fender swap?   It also looks like the rear springs have been replaced as well as the gas tank and fuel line.  All of this says to me that this car is NOT in any way "Rust Free" as the seller claims.  As for the story of the missing engine....REALLY?  Who removes an all original big block 396 and puts it in their garage and can't seem to find it?  My garage is pretty messy, but I bet I could find a big block engine easily.  And who buys a car of this caliber with the promise that they will get a free numbers matching engine, but doesn't pursue it and do everything they can to get it?  That would be priority one if I bought this car from a man with a messy garage.  I can assure whoever buys this on ebay, that they should  not hold their breath waiting for the numbers matching 396 to show up any time soon. 

It's not so much the issue with the car, it's they lying and covering up that scares me the most.  State it's a small block conversion, and that there was some rust, but panels were replaced, and that would be a fine start to a good transaction.  This nonsense of "Rust Free", "Second Owner", "Orig Engine if I can find it" makes this deal sour in my opinion.



 
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Wanted 1969 Camaro Rosewood Dash portion with rear defroster hole on: September 05, 2014, 02:48:05 AM
I think I have one...email me and I will send a pic to see if it will work.  It's actually a regular one, but someone installed a switch in the defroster area, and if you enlargen the  hole properly for a defroster, it should work.

Hey guys,

It;s time for me to pull out the cardboard sign and tin cup and beg for pics of your Camaros.  I am especially in need of 67 photos, but all of them are equallly welcomed.  The first 67 pic I get will be used for September, so hurry and send your Camaro pic to me now.  I promise that all usuable photos will get put in the lineup and will get posted.  Your Camaro does not have to be perfect, it just has to be a Camaro.  A little rust or primer, no problem.  Paint faded or a dent, who cares?  Take a pic and send it to me.  This site is about everyday Camaros, it's about our Camaros.  So show off your ride and show the world your awesome Camaro.

Send pics to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

Thanks,

Steve

Guys,
 There are MANY countries with All the qualities that you guys seem to long for. . . . pack up and move! Whining does nothing, just ask congress. Do you live in a bankrupt state living off the backs of California, New York, Texas and Colorado?
   The first step would be to get those states solvent. you have to fix the rust and dents before you can paint the whole car.  On a positive note I just recently found all my issues AUTOBUFF magazine!
     Victor


I am not going to pack up and move...

Why you would say that is bewildering to say the least.  And why do you assume anyone is whining about it?  You state this as if that by stating an observation to what I see around me, and the results of what I see as a consequence of bad leadership is someone whining.  All solutions start by first stating the problem.  And anyone who thinks that taking the first steps in solving a problem is to be considered whining, in my opinion, knows very little on problem solving.  So, I am not moving, nor is anyone whining.
