I would. Sent you a PM from T.C. an CRG. I need the bolt and cable in black. PM sent.
Gary, the original 69 cable I have is gray, I thought the black was 67 and maybe 68 too?

Did not know that.



Steve, make that gray instead of black please sir.

Eldon. I think mine may be zinc plated but will have to look to make sure. I can check my survivor 69 Impala too, probably no difference with them, but who knows. Maybe Bentley or GaryW still have originals. Lloyd should have his original too.

The first ever reproduction belt I got from Ricks was toast the first 6500 RPM's I hit. Sounded like a long tail rat got stuck under the hood. I saw a post somewhere later on asking this too and found someone saying use a cogged belt, if that is what they are called. Has the blocks on the outside of the belt. I think I just measured what I had and found a gates or something at the NAPA store. Here is a pic. Been on since 2000 or 4500 miles. Has never twisted off yet. Would be interested in hearing what others use if there is a different belt though.

Hmmmm...6 inches long. I'll have to look at mine tomorrow but mine may be a little longer...I think....but who knows after 40 years and not being original owner.

I have to agree with Bentley on the M20. Works great with 3.73's and 4.10's in first gear. Don't seem to have that kind of lag the M21 has in first gear. 2nd thru 4th should be the same IIRC. For the my car launched pretty well with the 4.10's, kind of like a punch in the face. With the 3.73's now back in it's much less of a shock on launch. Much smoother.

I always used the cork gaskets with the 3M yellow glue along with some 3M silicone sealer that I got when I worked on C5's in the Air Force. I spread the glue on the bulkhead rails and on one side of the cork gasket and let it skin and then set the cork gasket on once it got real tacky . Would let that firm up for a while before installing the intake. Used the same 3M glue on the water jackets and the gasket engine side and let that tack up too. A few hours later I would do the intake side of the gaskets and the intake surface with the same 3M yellow glue and let it skin until it was tacky, added a little of the 3M silicone sealer at the intake, head, and bulkhead rail corners and carefully set the intake on and tighten it up per my Motors Manual. Worked great and never leaked. A friend turned me onto the the Permatex Ultra Black in 83 and use it exclusively now. No cork or rubber on the bulkhead rails. Cleans up really nice once cinched down. I go back with a single edge razor blade and shave off the excess once it's cured. Looks decent.      
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heavy undercoating was it factory or dealer applied? on: June 04, 2014, 04:58:10 PM
Wasn't it called Zebart or something like that? When I lived in Houston for the summer of 83 I worked for this company off Katy Freeway that did the LP gas conversions for fleet vehicles and was contracted to work out of Port Arthur to rust proof and undercoat a fleet of trucks, vans and whatever those road vehicles that can run on rail tracks like the trains. That was a nasty job. There was 5 of us fighting over who would be the one to climb under those vehicles to spray that heavy black stuff. One guy did them all, IIRC about 100 vehicles had to be done. One person removed the lights and other items, one drilled holes and put the plugs in afterwards, one sprayed the gunk in the holes, hood, trunk lid, rockers and anywhere you can't see, I did that, and it was all put back together. Took about a week and it was messy an tough to get out of your hair.

Have the same stuff on my Z, originally from Maryland. Maybe an Atlantic coast deal? The 69 Impala survivor I have is loaded with it too, built at Terrytown, NY and shipped to Mystic, Conn.

The best designed car...ever. Love the Lemans Blue with white top. The brother of an old girlfriend in high school had an RS Z Lemans Blue with 'EVERYTHING' white and houndstooth. My first exposure to the 69 Z. What an image.

This pic should help. I put a small washer on the backside of the lever to tighten up the slop where the rod goes thru.
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Owners manual plastic bag on: May 31, 2014, 12:05:39 PM
Interesting on the printed dates. I'm gonna guess the bags weren't printed or revised? as much as the printed revisions of the manuals. So 'Jan' your bag is almost 2 years older than the car. I wonder if the 3-19-68 is fine for my June 69 car. Need more owners to check in with what they have with their cars.

Gary..  I had the chance today to take a look at the bag containing my owner's manual and PTP  (all original) for my '69 Corvette, which was built in August 1969.   The bag is dated 3-19-68     part number 3950779,   so the one you have (or were looking at?) should be perfect for your June car with that date..  Smiley

Gary W


Good news then Gary. The bag I have has the same part number as well as the same date as your bag. So, as it was stated, the bags were mass produced for everything GM built.


Darrel your bag is dated the same as Janobyte's bag I bet. Love that Norwood card. 
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Came within 4 miles of our house. on: May 27, 2014, 06:49:50 PM
Just got these pics from a friend of mine who had their house destroyed last week. Something rare for us , but scary as hell. This house is 4 miles from our house. Their house was hit and one of the neighbors caught this on the way out going southeast towards Dover. No idea what size it was, but looks big to me.
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: June 69 Z28 Tachs on: May 27, 2014, 02:26:13 PM
My 06A 653104 has a 6x8 tach.

If any one cares to know...Just got the OK to get the truck fixed, $1980.00 less my deductible. I think the State Farm adjuster called it a non-driver claim? Going to replace the panel. Chevy dealer/collision tech says it's kind of 'iffy' either way to fix or replace the panel based on where the damage is. The tech says it looks like an SUV with a rear tire on the tailgate hit it or something high enough that had some kind of plastic trim on it.
