Anything firm on this guys? Still confused as to which coil was used on the flat hood, open element air cleaner. #293 or the #298. Been going thru the 69 AIM and found #208 for the L6 and #270 for the ZL2 set up.

846th Camaro after mine. Would love to see the body number to see if it, the body, was built before or after mine. The front spoiler looks wavy.

Been chatting with D & R Classics via email over the past 2 days about their chambered exhaust hanger kit and lack of hardware. Their hanger kits were designed off the original GM hangers from what I was told. On the hardware this was the last email I got this morning.

"Yes, I had a hard time even finding specs on the screws. I found a generic replacement for the tail pipe clamp and tail pipe hanger to frame rail as I found the spec on those bolts. The front hanger and clamp I have to pull off a car to make sure I have original samples. Then I can send them out to be copied with the correct marking and all.

You are correct, AMK does not have anything for those part numbers.

We are working on it and hopefully will have hardware soon. Glad you asked about them. I am not sure how we have not had them all this time.

Thank you"


I had written down all the hardware part numbers that were found on pages 294 and 295, UPC L35/L34 B5 and B6 from the 69 AIM and emailed them to D & R. Maybe they can do a really complete kit.

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.
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Heater cover wiring clips. on: April 04, 2014, 11:02:47 AM
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??
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Coils. on: April 03, 2014, 07:56:59 PM
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.
26  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.
27  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.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stainless Chambered exhaust on: March 30, 2014, 01:01:09 PM
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.
