OK Jeff, this is what I can see. I had to break out the 2o foot magnifying glass to get this info.

On the second pic in above post on one side you can see 29A, on the other end same side 75A

Opposite side one end says ONE OR MORE PATENTS (and there are 8 of them) here are 4 I was able to read before my vision went south, these may or may not be accurate but that is what I can see, 3549383, 2687544,2697241, 2756474. I can get the others if you need them. Giving my eyes a break.

On the other end, closest to the clip, 702849 CAN. 52, 55, 58  PATENT PEND.

Here are two pics of the back.

Jeff, these are just the everyday generic replacements correct?

Looking at my spare cap today, was this used in 69? The rubber seal is bad as you can see in the pic. Are these rebuildable and who does it? Or can I rebuild it myself? I don't really want it restored to look pretty just rebuilt if possible.

Hi guys, here is the RF-15" refills that just came in, I got the box for these. Has Canada and American script on it. Notice the 3 lines? They are different then the RF-16's that came in for my Impala.

Thanks Lloyd. I wasn't planning on using the stainless pieces. I just need the bolts and washers. Other than the set of french locks that are on my unmolested 46000 mile 69 Impala, I have never seen another set. I can guarantee that there probably isn't a yard within 100 miles of me that would have one old engine in it to rob those locks off of. It seems most of the smaller stuff I need to purchase I have to count on members who might have this stuff stashed away. Well...time for a WTB add on T.C.
456  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 11, 2013, 11:20:51 PM
I wrote all those numbers down just for S & G's. I'm gonna hit NAPA tomorrow and see what I can get.
457  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust manifold bolts. on: July 11, 2013, 11:13:46 PM
Yeah I got a kit from AMK and included everything including the French locks.

Hey Daniel, you have number handy? I haven't looked yet but I was going to see what I could find in the 69 AIM if is even in there.
458  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust manifold bolts. on: July 11, 2013, 08:05:47 PM
AMK?

I'll give them a look.
459  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust manifold bolts. on: July 11, 2013, 06:17:08 PM
Yeah, gotcha on the french locks not on the center ports. Just needed to know if all the bolts got the washers including the french locks.

Any particular place to get the most correct parts or do you have to order this from there and that from another there? No one seems to carry an all in one kit.
460  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 11, 2013, 06:10:06 PM
So if we all go to NAPA and ask for WIP 601598 we'll get refills right?
461  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Neutral switch - that could have gone so wrong :-( on: July 11, 2013, 12:42:03 PM
Is there an adjustment on those or is it a fixed switch?
462  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust manifold bolts. on: July 11, 2013, 10:38:42 AM
Same length with thick flat washers


Thanks. Washers on the french looks too correct? Found some engine pics in this post but can't see the bolts to well to tell.

463  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Steering Pump & Steering Box Questions on: July 11, 2013, 03:34:50 AM
X2 on what sdkar said...My Z didn't come with power steering. Previous owner/s, don't no who or when, had installed a crappy, leaking 67 box that I changed out for a 1980 WS6 Trans Am power unit (I got it for free, and could have gotten the disc brake rear for free too but stupid me didn't want to put it under my Z). Someone turned me onto the guy that does the NASCAR power steering (can't remember who it is now) and he sent me the inserts I needed to install stock GM standard flared end hoses. If I remember correctly 1980 was the last year for standard threaded hose fittings and 1981 was when GM went with metric fittings. I do know the 1980 boxes are standard because I just installed new hoses I bought from Ricks 1st Gen for a stock 69 box. The turns lock to lock is just under 3, maybe 2 3/4 turns. The feel is tight,  positive and very deliberate and will take some time to get use to. It did for me when your use to 4 turns or less.

Something else to be aware of also, I had to change the coupling at the steering column to fit the splines of the 1980 box. It's been a few years now but the splines is actually smaller and won't actually fit the stock 69 column coupler. If I remember I had to get one for a 1977 power steering box to fit to the 69 column because the 1980 was a bit different where it attached to the 69 column flange. You get what I'm saying here don't you?

Ask your builder if he can build it to 1980 WS6 Trans Am standards and you may not have to go thru all the other parts change outs. You won't be disappointed.

Are the exhaust manifold bolts all the same length for the 69 small block and other then the french locks were there any washers used at all? Looking to get new bolts for my 69 Z engine but need this info on washers beforehand. Thanks guys.

 Jeff...Roll Eyes <---- THIS SMILEY NEEDS TO LOOK LIKE GROUCHO MARX, you know, with the cigar in his hand flipping the ashes off? I thought that's what you meant...12 pairs. That's still a lot. I might look for a couple more pairs this winter. I'll have to hint to the wife for Christmas presents this year. I don't drive my car in the rain either because of the vinyl top, it's unrestored and I really don't want to help it along if possible. A pic would be nice of the rubber so others could see too in case someone stumbles on a supplier and can let us all know.
