As for the color...I used dupli-color engine paint in cast coat gray color.

Solved the problem.  The front float was either stuck or set to high (or is it low?).  When I opened the sight plug on the bowl gas poured out.  I reset the float until fuel was just below the sight hole.  I then installed new plugs and it runs good again.  I have a holley regulator 803 but the lowest setting I can get out of it is 6-1/2.  I have turned the adjustment all the way out and it does not go any lower.  Anyway...it runs good again and does not seem to have a problem.  At least this is the longest it has run without fouling the plugs to the point of uselessness.

Thanks guys for all of the help....as always...it is greatly appreciated.

513  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Does autometer make a wiring harness for gauges? on: August 18, 2007, 04:12:03 PM
Is there any manufacturer that makes a wiring harness for autometer gauges.  I am installing all new autometer gauges, speedo, tach, volt, fuel, oil, and temp.  I have already installed an American Autowire wiring for the entire car.  Autometer requires all different size and configuration connectors for the back of all the gauges.  Instead of making about 20 something female wire ends I was wondering if there is a harness out there that has the correct connectors already and all I have to do is connect the wires.

Thanks,

Steve

Kevin...I still need the passenger rear.  If you have a lead on one I would appreciate any help.

When you say "dripping from the boosters" what do you mean and how do I check this?

516  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Aftermarket dash gauge bezels for 1969 Camaro? on: August 10, 2007, 08:52:40 AM
I had deceided to go with the covan classic brushed aluminum.  They sent me a sample and I liked the color and smooth texture.  However, they do NOT make the lower plastic piece that goes around the steering column and I am stuck having to use my origianl one.  The problem with this is the texture is completely different and I highly doubt I can find paint to match their brushed aluminum color.  I spoke with Covan and they state that they are working on developing this lower piece but it will be at least a year.  Does anyone know of any differnet manufactuers that I could check out.  Also, is there a way to fit autometer 3/38" gauges in a factory bezel?  If so, I may just install my aftermarket tach and speedo in the factory bezel and put the other guages under the dash or in a console of some sorts.  Thanks.

517  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / What causes fouling spark plugs in a new motor? on: August 04, 2007, 11:08:24 PM
I have a brand new 502 GM crate motor in my 69 Camaro.  I have yet to drive the car other than in and out of my garage as I am rebuilding it.  It ran great at first but than started fouling the plugs.  I am on my second set of plugs already and they have less than 20 minutes on them.  I cleaned them but that only lasted about 2 minutes and they are fouled again.  This is the ZZ502 deluxe and came with a Holley 850 and I am running the fuel pressure at 7 lbs.  The timing is set to factory.  The engine starts running rough...then backfiring...then stalls and will not start until I clean or install new plugs, only to start the fouling all over again.  What do I need to do to stop this.  I am ready to drive the car to the paint shop, but at this rate I won't get 2 miles.  This is odd to me since this is a brand new motor.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Will a late model GM wiper motor work?  I have seen them and they are thin like the DSE one.  Just wondering what mods to the wiring I would need?  Any other mods to consider too?

519  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I need LOTS and LOTS of pics for the CRG homepage. on: July 31, 2007, 08:07:23 PM
Thanks guys...I got a terrific response.  As usual, I have lots of 69's, which is great.  I got a few 67's...at least enough to keep me going for a few months.  I only got one 68 though, thanks to Jason Dearduff.  Please keep sending in your pics.  I promise that everyone that sent in a pic will get posted.  If you sent a 67...you will see yours within a few months...you 69 guys will be a little longer but your pic will get to be a homepage car soon enough. 

Thanks to everyone for a great response and keep 'em coming.

I found a set of three NOS wheel well molding and bought them.  Actually, I bought two (2) sets of three moldings that include both driver side and the passenger front, all GM NOS and still in wrapper with screws.  If anyone needs any of the moldings I will sell them for what I paid, which is $100 each plus shipping. 

Finally, if anyone has a passenger rear GM wheel well molding for sale, I would like to buy it.  I will pay big $$$.  Not looking to get a great deal...just looking to get one.

521  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / I need LOTS and LOTS of pics for the CRG homepage. on: July 17, 2007, 09:47:51 PM
I used to make this request and get a lot of submissions....but lately when I beg all I get are one or two responses.  C'mon guys...surely I haven't posted everyone's car that visits CRG.  I would like to build up the supply of pics and get them ready to use so I don't have to grovel at the end of every month.   So please send in pics of your Camaro.  If you don't have one...send in a pic of your friend's car.  If you don't have a friend with a Camaro...go make some.  Do what I do...next time you go to a car show and see a Camaro you think is cool and worthy of our home page...walk up and talk to the owner and ask him if you can take a pic of his car and submit it for our homepage.  I am sure you won't get no for an answer.  Get the guy's name so we can give him credit for his ride.  Tell him about CRG and how great it is while your at it.  I get a great pic of a Camaro, the guy gets introduced to the coolest Camaro website and his car posted on our homepage, and you get a new friend with a cool Camaro...everybody wins. 

Please Please Please...I want to get lots of submissions.  I promise to post every usable photo I get.  You have now all been deputized as my new photographers in the field, now get busy with your assignment and make all of us proud. 

Send your photos to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

Thanks,

I have a set of Goodmark full quarters welded on...am I going to have problems with the OEM wheel well moldings?

What exactly is different from GM quarters and aftermarket?

523  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How well to the 69 reproduction wheel well moldings fit? on: July 17, 2007, 08:20:44 PM
email me a price you would take for all 4 of them...

524  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Aftermarket dash gauge bezels for 1969 Camaro? on: July 17, 2007, 03:48:30 PM
I see Covan and DSE make an aftermarket gauge bezel for 69 Camaro.  I like DSE but it's a bit pricey at $550 and Covans is nice, but not the look I want.  Are there any other companies that anyone can recommend that make an aftermarket gauge bezel for my car?

Thanks,

Steve

I bit the bullet and bought a GM NOS set of three I found on ebay.  The seller has several sets of three and he still has some left if anyone is interested.  Email me and I will give you his contact info.  He only has the fronts and the driver side rear.  I called Rick's and they stated that they only have the driver side GM moldings left and only one of the rear and two of the front.  They further advised me that they are not the nicest as the wrappers fell off long ago and they are scratched and slightly dinged.  Rick's was nice enough to let me know before I ordered.  Rick's further confirmed what is said here...that the repro's aren't too nice.  It still amazes me to this day that they can't make parts with today's technology at least as decent as they did 40 years ago.  It's not like the bar was set too high for quality, but somehow, we can't even match the quality and fitness.  If anyone has or knows of a passenger rear molding for sale, let me know please.  Not looking for it cheap...just looking for it.
