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.

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.

561  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Exhaust resonator...what does it do? on: February 25, 2007, 01:23:54 AM
Looking at the factory exhaust systems for 69 Camaro with big block.  I see that D&R classics offers a system with and without a resonator.  So, what is a resonator and what does it do?  Does is make the system sound deeper? 

I was looking for an aftermarket setup such as Flomaster for a 69 Camaro with big block with exhaust manifolds but all I can seem to find are systems for headers.  Does anyone know of an aftermarket kit that will work with factory exhaust manifolds?

562  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1969 Camaro Big Block Radiator/Electric Fan Suggestions? on: February 24, 2007, 10:31:40 PM
I am building a 69 Camaro with a ZZ502 and manual transmission.  What do you guys recommend for a radiator/electric fan setup that will work well.  I am looking to make this a daily driver so stand still in traffic cooling is important.  Also, I see 2 row vs. 3 row.  1"/1.25"/1.5" tubes?  Is more and bigger necessarily better?

I was considering a Fluidyne radiator with a Perma-cool dual fan setup.  I like the looks of the perma cool fans as they are tuff looking and have a 5,900 cfm rating.  I really like the Fluidyne radiator as they have a 3 row setup whereas the others I have looked at have only two rows.  More rows means better cooling...right?  Here is the setup:

and

http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=PRM%2D19524&N=700+115&autoview=sku

However, I am not married to this setup and have not made any final decisions.  I can certainly be persuaded by you more experience professionals out there.  My major concern is keeping everything cool.

Thanks guys,

Steve

563  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 Camaro pic needed for the home page for March on: February 22, 2007, 01:37:55 PM
The next person to send me a pic of their 67 Camaro gets to be on the home page for the entire month of March.  Many of the months have only 30 days or less...but if you act now, you get to see your car on the front page of this website for an entire 31 days.  That is 3.3% more exposure.  We're talkin an extra 24 hours for everyone in world to oogle at your car and wish it was their.  One whole extra day to show off your ride.  So act now...this is a limited time offer.  (Some restrictions may apply, Ford owner need not submit).

Also, for all you 68 and 69 owners out there, send your pics on it.  I only have a couple of 68's left, so you will see your car soon.  69 owners, send yours in to.  Though I have some ready to go...I am always looking for more.

And hey, If you have a green Camaro and send it in, I will make your car the car of the month for your year in celebration of St. Patty's day. 

Thanks guys,

Send em to

564  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / ideas and pics of where to mount a fuel pump & regulator in a 69 Camaro. on: February 22, 2007, 01:36:52 AM
Any ideas that work well when installing a new electric holley fuel pump and fuel regulator in a 69 Camaro with a 502.  I know I need to install the pump as close to the tank as possible and the regulator as clost to the carbs as possible as well.  Any ideas?  If so, please let me know.  Also, if you can, send a pic.  I have a 502 BB with a holley 850 double pumper with dual feed lines. 

Any help is always appreciated.

Thanks,

Steve

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

Is this the pump you were referring to?

http://www.holley.com/12-815-1.asp

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?

http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=SUM%2DG3136&N=700+115&autoview=sku

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 sdkar@bellsouth.net)

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 stuff...so I am learning as much as I can and having fun.

Thanks for the info...it is appreciated.

Steve
