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.

I wrote all those numbers down just for S & G's. I'm gonna hit NAPA tomorrow and see what I can get.
486  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.
487  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust manifold bolts. on: July 11, 2013, 08:05:47 PM
AMK?

I'll give them a look.
488  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.
489  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?
490  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?
491  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.

492  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.
495  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Wiper blade refills on: July 10, 2013, 02:17:30 PM
The 1969 and early 70's refills and the original assembly line were exactly the same. 3 ribs, patent numbers, and skeleton back.

The ones with the metal strip were later years or may even have been for a different arm type?
these were available from Trico as:just the rubber Refills = RF, or Complete blades = I think those were tagged LF?

I saved a 12 case of these for myself - last time someone managed to convince me to part with a pair - think they paid me $35.

When I went looking for that picture today and found the Dots pair for 63-65. I had to control myself and not buy them for $100.
those are just impossible to find for the Corvettes. and the ones on my 63 driver car are streaking a bit   Shocked

my wife would not be happy if she found that I paid $100 for a set of wiper refills, especially when I don't like to drive the car in the rain.  LOL

12 cases? Will you actually use them all? If you get a chance how about a pic of an OEM set for 69. I'm not sure what they look like and not sure what is on my Camaro.


Yeah...my wife would have taken them and used them as a switch on me. Prices are unbelievable for the people that have these cars and can't afford the high prices. It just isn't fair if you ask me. I mean who do those people think they are. I'm damnnn lucky I have what I have but I can't pay those prices. There are several dated pieces I need for my Z I see all the time, but I can't afford them.
