571  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Keisler Tremec Transmission versus Classic Chevy Transmissions? on: January 31, 2007, 11:24:15 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.

or

http://www.classicchevy5speed.com/Camaro-Firebird-1967-81-Kit-Select.aspx

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.

Since the side post battery sold is garbage, is there any indication that a side post battery topper will be made?  I spoke with guys at batterytoppers.com at least a year ago and they stated they were looking into a side post topper, but it is still not available.  I imagine that all it is is their top post topper only without the holes.  Am I correct.  Are they going to ever make this?  I thought of getting a top post topper and attempting to fill in the holes but it is something I have been holding off doing since I keep hoping a side post topper is coming soon?

Hey guys...just my usual begging of photos of your cars to post on the home page at the beginning of every month.  So send em to me.  As usual, I need 67 and 68 pics badly.  I still have a few 69's but send em to me anyway as I will get to them in the next few months.

Thanks guys,

574  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Was there a power seat option for first generation Camaros? on: January 04, 2007, 10:45:01 PM
Was there a power seat option for the 67-69 Camaro...either factory or dealer option?  I saw what looked like a power seat track at Rick's Camaros when in Georgia, but have never seen or heard of one on a car.  Was this a proto-type that never made it or does this option really exist.  If so, anyone got any pics of it?

575  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 SS350 convertible w/Powerglide, how rare is it? on: January 03, 2007, 12:01:33 AM
I have an SS350 pace car that also came originally with a column shifter, powerglide and a 10 bolt.  Not sure if you car originally had a column shift but I am almost positive that all SS cars with the powerglide did have a 10 bolt.  I know of one other guy that has an SS as well that has a powerglide/10 bolt setup.  Like you, I wanted a 3 speed automatic.  What I did was install a TH350 and took my powerglide and all of the linkages and stored them away for later on.  That way, IF I ever sell my car (I would have to be dead broke at this point) I have the original tranny.  But the car is for me.  So I installed the 3 speed and it is much better driving than the powerglide.  So, change it if you want to and just save the tranny.  Most importantly, do to your car that will make you the happiest.  The heck with what the next owner wants.

576  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Ron Francis XP-768 Wiring Kit for 1967 - 1969 Camaro For Sale on: December 06, 2006, 12:24:05 AM
Sorry about the shameless plug, but this is really a good deal for someone wanting to upgrade the electrical system in their first gen Camaro.

I am selling on ebay a Ron Francis Wiring kit for 1967 -1969 Camaro.  It came with my 69 Camaro project car when I bought it but I am not using it.  This kit costs $420 new and I am listing if for less than half of that.  This kit is BRAND NEW and unused.  I am not looking to make a huge profit on it as I would really just like to see it go to someone who wants it and can really use it.  Check out my auction at Ebay # 190058917938

Also, check out Ron Francis website for better details on the kit itself at:

Again, sorry for the shameless plug, but I am hoping someone will want this.
577  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Programming keyless entry for 97 Firebird on: November 30, 2006, 08:29:17 PM
Found it....for anyone else who wants to know...here it is.  This will work for Camaro too.


1. Pull radio fuse

2. Cycle the ignition switch from OFF to RUN 3 times within 5 seconds
You will know when you have done it right because the doors will lock and unlock and the hatch release will pop. (leave key in RUN position the last time)

3. Hold lock and unlock in the remote for 16 seconds
The doors will lock/unlock and the hatch will pop again to give feedback a transmission has been recognized. Wait for the doors to unlock before procceding.

4. turn the ignition off and replace the radio fuse

Okay...so this is not Camaro related and I am sorry for this post if anyone is offended.  However, consider it a compliment as you guys have been helpful on my 69 Camaros when it came time for information.  I just bought a 97 TA WS6 and had to get another keyless remote.  How do I program the remote to my car?  I am hoping that at least one of my first gen experts can help me or at least direct me with this request.  I have looked all over the internet and can not find instructions that work.

580  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What size wheels can I go with on a 69 Camaro? on: October 12, 2006, 09:00:23 PM
Okay, here is what I ended up getting and you can not get a bigger wheel/tire combo on a stock 69 Camaro.  I have 255/40-19 on the rear mounted on a 9-1/2" wheel and 245/40-18 on the front with an 8-1/2 inch wheel.  The rears fit perfect and fill the wheel perfectly with just about a 1/4" clearance on the backside of the well.  The fronts just slightly hit the frame, but only on the tightest of turns.  This will probably only affect me when parking with lock to lock turns.  Otherwise, they will work fine.  I got the 8-1/2" because they did not have a 7-1/2 or an 8 in the rim I chose.  I ended up getting the Ruff Racing wheels in hyperblack with Falken 452 tires.  Here is the auction on ebay. 

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300031822165&sspagename=ADME%3AL%3ARTQ%3AUS%3A1

Adriano was the guy I dealt with and you couldn't deal with a nicer guy without a doubt.

I test fit them on my Pace Car and they look great.  I mounted them on the subframe of my pro tour car I am building and with the wilwood 12.5" drilled and slotted rotors and billet calipers....they look awesome. 

So there you have it....the largest wheels and tires you can get on a Camaro wtihout looking too big or too ridiculous.  The perfect pro tour look in my opinion.



581  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need Camaro pics for the homepage on: September 25, 2006, 08:54:08 PM
Hey guys,

Send me your Camaro pics for the homepage.  As most of you know, they get changed every month.  I have no pics left for the 67 slot for next month and I have only a few for 68.  For you 69 guys, send in a pic anyway.  I promise it will get posted.  As for you 67 & 68 Camaro guys, come on.  Everyone complains that there are too many 69's and that 67 and 68 is hugely overlooked.  So send in your pic to show the 69 guys that there are still plenty 67 and 68 Camaros out there.  If I only get 69 pics sent to me and I don't get any 67 and 68 submissions before the end of the month, I am going to post all 69 Camaros for all three years.  And if I don't get any pics at all, then I am going to start putting up pics of Fords.  Please, don't make me resort to this. 

send your pics to    sdkar@bellsouth.net


Thanks guys,

Steve

Well, I went to powersteering.com and spoke with Chip.  He seemed knowledgeable, so I sent my box off.  I will report the outcome when I have it.  Thanks guys.

Here is another site in helping determine how to convert mm offsets to backspacing in inches. 

http://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

So, can someone please check my math.  If I want to get a set of wheels for my 69 Camaro that are 18x8 in the rear and 18x7 in the front and I need a backspacing of 4" in the rear (rear axle is 58-1/2" AF to AF) and a 4-3/4" backspacing for the front wheels...then I need a 0mm offset for the rear and a +32mm offset for the fronts.  That is what I come up with.  Does this sound right.  Also, does anyone know what mm offset will work for a 69 Camaro if this is not correct?

Sept 2006 Camaro Performers Magazine has a build up of a 67 dynacorn coupe and how they make the bodies.  Also, the TV show "Chop Cut Rebuild" is featuring the buildup of a dynacorn body to a complete car.


585  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Steering box rebuild service for Power steering on: September 05, 2006, 11:52:58 AM
Is there anyone that comes recommended for rebuilding power steering boxes?  My box works fine but is leaking.  Also, is there a place to order a rebuild kit as well?
