541  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Late model wiper motor fit on a 1969 Camaro on: April 28, 2007, 09:50:16 PM
Does anyone know if there are any late model wiper motors, something with several speeds and delay, that will fit on a 69 Camaro at the firewall?

If so, let me know.  I was looking at the motor on the blazer and it looks close.  Does anyone know of a tried and true motor that will work without having to spend $300 for the DSE motor?

There is a similar situation here is Florida not too far from where I live.  There is an old warehouse (similar to an airplane hangar) near the airport that has looked abandoned for years and is overgrown with weeds etc. The warehouse is locked up and there is a fence around the entire lot.  During the hurricane in 2005 the fence was blown over and the garage door was blown in.  I became nosy and checked it out.  Inside the hangar was about a dozen cars.  Inside was a 63 or 64 corvette convertible with a/c, a 57 bel air coupe, an old ferrari (dino 236?) as well as other old cars.  All covered in years of dust and looks as if they had not been disturbed in years.  I asked around and found out the owner is out of state and the cars are not for sale.  Some day someone will get the opprotunity to buy these cars after the owner dies and the family just wants to get rid of them.

I have a convertible SS and I have the exhaust bracket.  Isn't the bracket there on all SS cars regardless of convertible for not?

544  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Noisy electric fuel pump on: April 26, 2007, 03:10:39 PM
Okay, I have come up with what may be an answer to my own question and would like an expert to verify my solution before I impliment it.  I notice the pump quiets down a little after the car is running.  The pump is at its noisiest when I first turn the key before the motor starts.  So, if I add a return line, will this quiet the pump down?  My thinking is that if the pump is not trying to push fuel that is blocked by the regulator and lack of carb not taking it, then the return line will relieve the pressure that is built up thus making the pump "happier" and quieter.  This logic works for my wife, so maybe it will work for my fuel pump too.  Does this make sense?

If so, please let me know.  If I don't get a response well then darn it...I'm going to do it anyway and find out, so there.

Thanks

I installed a new Holley black pump (140 gph) on the rear frame rail of my 69 Camaro.  I understand that there should be some "whining", but wow is this thing loud.  It is way more than just a whine.  Is this normal?  I installed a rubber pad between the frame and mounting bracket but this did not help at all.  Is this sound normal or should I exchange it for another one.  Also, is there any other electric pump out there that is quieter.  If so, I will return this one and get one that doesn't sound like I have a mariachi band in the trunk.  Unfortunately, the 502 does not take a mechanical pump.

Thanks,

Steve
546  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Camaro pics for homepage needed for May on: April 19, 2007, 06:18:22 PM
I am in need of your Camaro pics for May's homepage.  I have a couple of 69's to go but will need some in the months to come.  However, I really really need 67 and 68 pics.  So, the next 67 and 68 pics I receive will get to strut their stuff on the homepage for the entire month of May.  So send em to me at the following email address and don't forget to include your full name so we know who's cool ride it is.

547  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Serpentine belt setup for a big block on: April 19, 2007, 06:14:55 PM
I purchased a GM serpentine belt setup (part # 12498733) for my 502 big block in my 69 Camaro.

http://69.20.110.81/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=26946

However, the AC sits too high.  I would like to keep a stock appearance and don't want any chrome or billet stuff.  Are there any recommendations for lowering the bracket or maybe a bracket kit I can buy and still use all of my pulleys and components. 

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.

548  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What size aftermarket gauges fit in 69 Cluster? on: March 24, 2007, 10:13:22 PM
I want to add either silver or white faced aftermarket gauges on my 69 Camaro Pro Tour.  What size gauges will fit in the round part of the cluster.  I was going to go with a Covan setup but decided to copy the Reggie Jackson Camaro and use the stock console with aftermarket gauges and keep the stock gauge bezel.  Also, any ideas or links to check out for buying these.  Who makes nice gauges?

Thanks,

I don't see any instructions on their site.  If anyone has a set of instructions, I would be eternally grateful for a copy.   

Let me know if you do and I can give you mailing or faxing instructions.

550  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / ZZ502 oil capacity? on: March 18, 2007, 12:15:45 PM
I have been all over the internet and can not find anywhere what the oil capacity if for a ZZ502 motor.  Does anyone out there know the oil capacity.  It's a new motor and has no oil in it as of now.  I suppose I could just add 5 quarts and go from therem but if someone knows it would be so much nicer.  Does anyone know so that I can just add the oil and start it up.

You can use either hooker headers (part # 2457) or if you have some extra money, go to Dougs headers (http://dougsheaders.com/tv/) for the 502 to fit in the 69 Camaro.  You will definitely need to change the oil pan to a 4 quart pan to clear the crossmember.  There is an oil pan offered that is specifically made for the 502 in a 69 Camaro.  Other than that, everything will fit fine.

555  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 standard to RS front conversion. on: March 13, 2007, 08:10:26 PM
The lower valance does not have to be changed for the 67.  You can cut your existing non RS to accomodate the front lights.  You need the headlight buckets, the RS fender adaptors, the relays, motors and wiring, 4 limit switches and an underdash wiring diode harness to adapt your headlight switch.  The one thing I found out the hard way was that the limit switches are one way.  Even though they look exactly alike, the wires have electric in and out wires so to speak.  I could not figure out why my system didn't work when I did the conversion as I have everything correct.  Finally, I revesed the limit switches and everything worked fine.  If you need any additional info, email me and I will answer your question.  I converted my entire system and when done, looked perfect.
