Hey Daytonakid,

What about the side post batteries for the late 69 Camaro?  Any plans on making these as well?

The seats should be the exact change.  I have recovered 69 standard seats with houndstooth and they fit perfectly.

Here it is...looks great to me.

560  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Recommendation for electric fuel pump for 502 big block on: February 18, 2007, 12:41:45 AM
Is this the pump you were referring to?

Here is Summit Racing's in house pump. It looks to be the exact same thing only about $55 cheaper.  It looks like maybe Holley is building this for Summit to put their own name on it.  Is this the same pump or should I stick with the name brand Holley?

Where does the regulator normally get installed?  Near the inlet to the dual line to the carb?  Any chance of getting a pic of a proper installation location? (send to

Also, what is the reason to have the fuel pump installed closer to the tank as opposed to near the engine compartment?  Just curious.

Sorry to ask so many questions, but this is my first really big build.  I am used to original restorations where there is a map to follow.  Never really ventured this far from factory I am learning as much as I can and having fun.

Thanks for the is appreciated.

561  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Exhaust manifolds v. Headers? on: February 18, 2007, 12:38:59 AM
Where can I find a step header to fit my 69 Camaro.  Do you know which brand and/or part number I should get for a Big Block?

562  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Recommendation for electric fuel pump for 502 big block on: February 17, 2007, 11:14:39 PM
Okay, for my next shameless request in my neverending pursuit of knowledge and picking the brain of those of you who know.  What do you guys recommend for an electric fuel pump.  It is for my 69 Camaro with a 502 big block.  I have 3/8 fuel line as well.  Is the size of this line adequate?  Do I need a fuel regulator as well and if so, what is recommended?  Finally, Where should the fuel pump be installed?  As close to the engine as possible or will anywhere under the car along the frame be okay? 

Thanks guys,

563  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Exhaust manifolds v. Headers? on: February 17, 2007, 08:50:57 PM

what is a step header?  Also, what do you recommend for this type of header for a 69 Camaro with a 502.  I have rack and pinion so the steering box is no longer an issue.

Finally, I am more interested in low end torque and off the line response...not top end.  So if I go with mainfolds how bad am I really hurting the power?

Thank you,

564  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / proportioning valve - adjustable v. self adjusting? on: February 16, 2007, 09:13:29 AM
I am buying my brake setup now and have a question.  I am using a stock booster and master cylinder setup. I have four wheel disc brakes.  What would be better or what are the pros and cons of using either an adjustable proportioning valve versus a self adjusting one?

Here are the two choices.


as always, opinions are appreciated.  You guys are helping my build my thanks.

565  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Exhaust manifolds v. Headers? on: February 15, 2007, 12:13:46 PM
Also, what effect on the horsepower and torque is there between headers and exhaust manifolds? 
566  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Exhaust manifolds v. Headers? on: February 15, 2007, 08:51:37 AM
I am installing a 502 motor in my 69 Camaro.  I am up in the air about installing headers or exhaust manifolds.  I like the clean look of a manifold and the ease of installation as well as not having exhaust leaks, burnt spark plug wires and easy access to my spark plugs.  What would the significant different in installing one over the other?  Have headers come a long way and the problems above not as big anymore.

I am either going to go with one of the following and would like opinions.  Thanks guys.

factory exhaust manifolds

Hooker ceramic coated headers.

Also, it says I can't use ceramic coated headers to break in a motor.  What the heck is that about?
567  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Stupid question...small block v. big block weight? on: February 14, 2007, 10:15:44 AM
I was wondering how much a small block factory setup in a 69 Camaro weighs versus a 502 big block.  When shipped to me the shipper indicated the engine with the serpentine belt setup with AC, PS, Alt etc. were 900 lbs.  I know some of this is contributed to the crating and over estimating.  I look online but can not find this info.  So, for anyone who may know.  What would the actual or at least close estimate of weight be for a loaded up 502 and just out of curiosity, what would this same weight be for my factory 350 smallblock in my other 69 be? 

I know...stupid question.  But I don't know and I am curious.  Besides, there is no such thing as stupid questions...just stupid people...RIGHT?


568  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Recommendation for Radiator and Electric Fans for Big Block on: February 13, 2007, 07:52:41 PM
I see many different brands of radiators and electric fan setups.  What has anyone out there used that they were happy with the setup of radiator and an electric dual fan setup?  What brand, type, etc.  This is for a 69 Camaro with a 502 big block with manual transmission.


569  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Wheel well mouldings discontinued on: February 11, 2007, 10:20:35 PM
I did try a set of repro wheel well mldgs and they were not even close. The fit was horrible.  Not even remotely close to the contour needed.  How is it that 38 year old technology produced better parts than we can get repro now?  I got a set for my last Camaro just before they were discontinued.  If anyone has used the newer repros themselves and can verify that they actually fit close to OE than please let me know.  I need one more set for another car.

570  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Keisler Tremec versus Classic Chevy Transmissions? Any opinions? on: January 31, 2007, 11:25:04 PM
Hey guys...I am trying to figure out if anyone has used either supplier for a Tremec 5 speed.

I have looked into both suppliers and spoke with them.  They both seem knowledgeable, but of course they are salesmen.

Has anyone had any experience with either one of them.  There are things I liked and disliked about what they are offering so any opinions would help.


The components are different and the pricing is about $500 cheaper for one of them for the identical kit.  I don't mind spending the difference if the money will get me a better setup.  But, is it really better or just higher priced.  Overall, which one with have the highest quality, ease of install and help if I need it.  If anyone has used either kit, please let me know.
