Gary, I wouldn't do this for just anyone, but you are not just anyone. I went out on this Ohio windy/rainy day just to get you a clear pic off the yellow car's heater box. Not as nice as JohnZ's car, but an unmolested, untouched, original factory setup. I pulled the heater wire down so all could see the factory smashed wire that was clamped under the fender (left side of pic). Hope this does it for you. Wink

Thanks Bentley, that shows it all. The weather is crappy here too, although it hasn't been raining. Whatever you have there we'll get here in a day or so.

Thanks fellas. The pics provided definitely only show the top clip location. John thanks for the AIM info, I'm just getting back in the house so I didn't get a chance to finish looking further than I had in the book.

Kind of hard to tell, but looks like one at he top for the blower motor? Curious if that was all there was since the starter wires went down the side of the cover and behind the head. Was looking at some pics but couldn't find anything conclusive. The AIM isn't providing any info, but I haven't gone completely thru it yet.

Hey guys, how many clips are there in the engine compartment side heater cover for the wiring? Any idea where they go? I don't know why, but I'm thinking there should be two??

Other then the #270 coil (we all know that is for the ZL2 set up) is there any hard evidence yet on the #293 and #298 coils? I've been seeing a lot of #293 coils showing up on ebay lately. None of which says for Z28. I'm still a little confused as to what is SUPPOSED to be on the flat hood Z28. Currently I have several #298 coils as spares but no #293 coils and if I need one they are cheap at the moment.

All is good then, just need to get the hanger kit now. I was looking at some different forums and found one, don't remember which one, that had some exhaust installation tips. Make sure everything fits and then remove and then saw slots on either side of the muffler and or pipe connections and the clamps will tighten down better. Have you guys heard that being done? Kind of makes sense. The metal is pretty thick and I know Mark, Stingr69, said there was an issue there? As I stated before there were a ton of pics I found when I Googled images for Camaro exhausts and found plenty that have weld spots to hold the connections together.

If your pipes have the aftermarket chromed tips with the heavy wall polished section, those hangers won't fit around them.  Chambered exhuast never had polished tips (polished tips started the same week the chambered system was discontinued), so they are sized for the stock thinwall tailipipe diameter.

This is what I have.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stainless Chambered exhaust on: March 31, 2014, 11:45:07 AM
Thanks Gary. Have to see if I have any of the clamp screws in my stash.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stainless Chambered exhaust on: March 30, 2014, 01:04:06 PM
If you are talking the rear most hangers I have a (extra) set of NOS hangers. I am not sure if this is what you referring to:


Does the bracket require a nut and bolt or are the holes punched for a sheet metal type screw? I can't tell from your pic.

The hangar kits are all over the place as to quality.  I actually called D&R and asked them for a "functional" Chambered Hangar reproduction and they had some odd loose Chambered Hangar pieces they sent me to complete my kit.  I still had some of the original hangar pieces under there so I just needed some bits to put it all together.  My car isn't worth buying NOS so I figured why worry about it?  I have pix of NOS hangars somewhere.

Mark, what was the quality of D & R's brackets? My car is not worthy of NOS either. I would be happy with just form and function.

For a better illustration of parts in the AIM go to the L34 section, it has the early clamp part numbers listed along with the complete list of parts.

Thanks James. Perfect. Page 294 and 295, UPC L35/L34, B5 and B6.

WOW! That's a huge b*tch (think Duce Bigalow)...too funny Bentley. I see "*L*" as 2 eyes and a nose, is that the correct definition?

One the reverse lock out rod, it looks like the header tube was hammered quite well for clearance. I have a set of headers that I can use the rod with no clearance. They were on the car when I bought it so I don't have a clue what brand they are. The only problem I have with them is the #6 spark plug has no clearance for the boot and it just gets fried.

I have D & R Chambered Exhaust Part Number: Z00003 and Chambered Exhaust Hanger Kit 67-69 w/ Clamps  Part Number: Z00001-KIT installed.
Let me know if you want some pictures or other information. I bought them three years ago and I remember that the bolts were included, but I may remember wrong..



I was a little curious if the hanger kit came with hardware. All the kits I've looked at in catalogs don't say if included and I was going to call to find out but haven't yet, and what is the difference between the $199.00 kit everyone else provides and the $119.00 kit that D & R provides? Currently, I have no idea if any of my hardware is correct, so, what I want to do is order the correct hardware from AMK Fasteners and according to the 69 AIM part numbers they have all but the hanger clamp screws, those aren't available. I don't believe they are a nut and bolt operation but more a sheet metal screw type. Have seen them both ways in on-line pics. Maybe a shot of the clamp screws if you want to brave the cold will help, but not necessary unless you don't have a problem doing it.

Anybody know what hardware is used here marked in red for the chambered exhaust hangers? Seems the part number in the 69 AIM isn't available on the AMK Fasteners site. The hanger kits are available from most any of the Camaro houses but none have complete hardware. At least this particular screw isn't offered anywhere that I can find. Anybody have a pic of one I can compare with, I may even have something in my buckets of GM hardware. I'll need 4.


Gary,
they use a large hex head sheet metal screw is the best way to describe it. 

The repro hangars are not going to fool anyone if they have seen the originals.  The best repro sets out there are just not that accurate.

I tried to tack weld the pipes after the clamps did not get the job done but they leak black liquid condensation all over the system YUK! For my 3rd try I just MIG welded the crap out of it. No leaks now - LOL!

I would start at the front and work back.  You can bolt together the 2 rear chambered sections but leave everything loose until it is all where you want it.  Use the dimensions in the AIM and watch out for rubbing on the inside of the rear tires.

-Mark.

Hello Mark,

So it is just a sheet metal screw. I'll just take one of each bracket to the hardware store and do a fit test to get the right size. I was curious about the 2 chambers that get bolted together...best to bolt together before going under the car or after? I was thinking before and just slip on to the hangers and then start at the front and the back to hang the pipes. Something I have noticed with the chambered system is all the black leaking from the connections in the pics I found on-line and how some have little tack welds here and there at the connections. I went to look at my exhaust and the tubing is quite thick and looks like it will be a bear to tighten the clamps. I'm not so sure I want to weld it all up but I shall see what I end up with afterwards. Yeah I already have the AIM bookmarked were the dimensions are. Just need to get the hanger kit. Most all have them at around $200.00 and D & R has them for $119.00. Is there a difference?? I could ask in a separate topic but probably would get many comparison replies. What did you use Mark?

Gary

I did a little research a while back on the side post batteries and cables since mind were long gone and found the numbers in the 69 AIM. These are what is offered from 'Lectric Limited' as reproductions based on the AIM. My car is an early 06A build. Here is the post discussion. http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/527439/Side_mount_battery_cables#Post527439 from one site and do a search here on 'side post battery cables' and you'll find some info on batteries and cables.
