421  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 OEM AM antenna question. on: August 05, 2013, 04:07:22 PM
Hello everybody. I have a question or two, or three about the OEM factory AM antenna's for the 69 model year. Were the AM antenna's the same for A, B, and F models? If so was the tip plain or did they all have a groove middle way around it? Reason I'm asking is because I bought an AM mast for my 69 Impala that I'm going to assume is a correct oval type for at least the 69 Impala but not sure if it is correct only because I have never seen one for comparisons sake. This mast I bought has no groove around the tip. Is there something on antennas here on CRG? I didn't see anything unless I just haven't toughed on it yet. Just being curious. Was there a replacement that just had the plain tip?

No I understand what you are saying but there are many repro valves out there some are flat and chamfered as original, others are chamfered on both sides. ANd they pictures are generic-interchangeable on catalog listings.

OK, I think I got it now. That pic in itself is not a good representation of what an OEM heat valve would look like for a 69 Camaro Z28.

If that's the case does mine look correct? I think the guy said it was a take off of a 71 350 270hp Corvette.

How expensive is it to have Jerry look at a car? Are there responsibilities you have to provide anything for him besides the car itself? From what I understand not many can afford to have a professional with this type of knowledge to appraise a Z. I want to have mine done, but I'm scared to death of what it would cost me. Something to think about anyway on top of what it would cost to get a bank loan too.

Maybe your not seeing what I see. On the Ricks valve pic, the bevel for the packing donut is facing up with the weight mechanism pointing, lets say north and on the right. If you look at my second pic the flat gasket side is up with the weight mechanism pointing north and to the right. If I flip mine over 180 then the weight mechanism is on the left of the valve whereas the Ricks pic is on the right...OR...if you spin my first pic 180 either way, clockwise or counter-clockwise to match the Ricks pic the weight mechanism's are opposite.

Can you see it? I'm thinking one of these is wrong.

Is the Ricks pic wrong?

Nope, it's just shown upside-down; the flat side goes up, against the (flat) outlet flange on the manifold, with a gasket, and the chamfered side goes down, and mates with the top of the "donut".


If you look at the pic of Ricks and mine the weigh mechanism is reversed or backwards or something. One of them is wrong it believe.
426  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust heat valve question. on: August 01, 2013, 12:14:07 PM
Yeah the bottom picture looks right side up as the weight should be installed on the fender side, weight pointed toward the front of the vehicle. Take the top one and flip it around and see what it looks like. Both Look in good condition considering age.



Those 2 pics are of the same valve. Works perfect, just need to clean it up a bit. So as it sits in the second pic just rotate the valve 1/4 turn clockwise so the weight is parallel with the fender.


Is the Ricks pic wrong?

This is the heat valve I have. Looks the same doesn't it? Something is either upside down or backwards on mine I think.

So, Ed, why did many come with one on each side? My Impala isn't the only one i've seen this way. With the engine only lifting on the driver side it doesn't make any sense for there to be one on the passenger side, but yet, there it is. In my search for LM1 engines in the 69 Impala, I have see quite a few.

Something else I was thinking about, even though the recall cables are there doesn't mean the motor mounts are bad or even separated are they? Looking at the mounts on the car I can't really tell. What's a good mount and a separated mount look like? Anybody have pics to share?
430  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Camaro Engine Identification on: July 28, 2013, 12:49:12 PM
Was just reading this and wanted to ask if it was unusual to have one on both driver and passenger side? I just picked up a 46000 mile 69 Impala and there is one on each side.

If you have access to another relay switch it out to confirm if it's a bad relay or not.
432  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Exhaust heat valve question. on: July 23, 2013, 11:01:08 PM
Is the heat valve the same for all 69 small blocks with 2" and 2 1/4" headpipes or are there two different valves? What about flanges? I don't have them and need them. Found both a valve and 2 flanges but need to make sure they will fit the factory manifolds and exhaust for a 69 DZ engine.

I thought the originals were aluminum.

What do you all think about the the chrome knob being offered?

Sad to say, but there's always a good possibility that someone has it and has seen your request, but won't say anything to you, because they don't want to give it up. Keep plugging away, though, you never know. It also may not be in the same configuration as you saw it last, or whoever has/had it trashed it and it's a different color. I wish I had my first Z from 74. Had to sell it when I went overseas. 6 months later it was smashed into a tree and totaled. It was a 10 10 Z too, and with the narrow spoiler.
