OK guys I'll google that and see if I can find somewhere close to my location.

I didn't see anything locally some electric motor shops. I tried a place down the road from me and he said no he wouldn't touch it. I assumed it was too small a job for them. Ill check again. When I googled I only found mostly how to R and R  them. I do have a Hemmings I was going to look thru as well.

I was thinking of sending mine to Jerry M but I really don't want to have it restored just make it functional. Do you think he would do that? I was looking for someone that I could trust so I knew I was going to get back the same starter.

Can anyone recommend someone that could rebuild my factory Z starter? I'm just looking to have it rebuilt and NOT restored. I have done a few in the past myself but I want an expert to check mine out. It's been sitting a long time and not sure what all it needs. Can't find anyone locally to do it.

Thanks.

OK thanks Mark. I know what happened then. Although it's been a few years back I ordered the resistor from Rick's and they must have given me the temp resistor instead of the fuel resistor. Things happen I suppose. Oh well, at least I can put that to bed now.

845  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Question about gas gauge resistor on: February 15, 2013, 12:01:18 AM
ok. I checked the loose gauge with the ohm meter and it reads 43.0 I also checked the resistor I bought and it reads 90.0.

On the loose gauge at the bottom of the face it has AC MADE IN USA 6431022. I can't check the other gauge, it's in the console at the moment.
846  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Question about gas gauge resistor on: February 14, 2013, 11:31:19 PM
Hi Mark. Both gauges are GM originals as far as I know. One is in the console and one isn't, anyway to make sure, I can check the one that's out? Is there a breakdown, schematic drawing, picture or something I can compare how these are put together? The problem I have is when I install the resister it goes to full now that you say that. I've been really curious about it. I was told several times the resister should be there, but like I said when I install it the needle goes to full and stays there. How do I check the resister? Just touch the OHM meter + - leads to the mount holes and see what it reads correct?

Thanks. I really don't want to fool with this again this year. What about the sending unit? Maybe bad?
847  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Question about gas gauge resistor on: February 14, 2013, 06:22:34 PM
Hello everybody. I have had this nagging question for awhile and I hope someone here can answer this for me. First a little history...

The console fuel gauge on my 69 Z only registers to just over a 1/4 tank even when it is full. When the fuel level gets to that point driving the car the gauge starts working again. I know I may have a problem possibly with the sending unit and have gone thru all the test that have been recommended on CRG and TC. I've had the sending unit out of the tank testing and in the tank testing. When I test the gauge and the sending unit together out of the tank it works fine, but when I put everything back together it performs as it always has...just over 1/4 tank and stops. When I drive the car, making turns and all that and I know I'm getting close to that mark on the gauge the low fuel light comes on and I know the gauge is working. I can't tell you how many times I have pulled all this stuff out to fix this issue. Electrical has never been my strong suit but I am not a 'TOTAL' idiot.

The nagging question I have is the use of or not use of the resister. If the resister is installed the gas gauge gives me a totally different action then if it isn't installed. I fooled around with this all last summer with no clarifications on whether I needed this resister or not. Were there different gauge manufacturers, or is the resister for the standard fuel gauges on the 67-68-69's or for the gauge package for the 68 only console? I have 2 original console gauges, neither one has a resister on the back of it and I'm not sure why I even bought it.

Anybody have any thoughts on this? I'm still trying to fix this issue and currently in the market for a new fuel sending unit. Are NAPA's any good?

Thanks guys.
848  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct exhaust for 68 bb L89 car on: February 14, 2013, 04:34:00 PM
 I know this is a few months old but I was reading this post and was compelled to respond to it. I had the same thing as Steve68 happen to me back in 1974.

 I was stationed at Dover AFB Delaware and one sunday morning I had the wife and my 1 year old son in my 69 Z. Coming back from church we stopped at a Dairy Queen to get some ice cream for my son and a Delaware State Trooper pulls in behind us. I got out of the car and he asked me to get back in and rev the engine. I did as Steve68 did and just lightly touched the throttle. The trooper said 'NO' stomp on it. I mashed my foot right down on the floor for about 5 seconds and let off. I asked him why he wanted me to do that and he said that he "observed me going up the rode with my foot into it and it was pretty loud". I told him he was nuts, plus my car had the factory exhaust system on it. I just got out of church with my family in the car do you think I would do that with a baby in the car? He asked for my drivers license, which was issued to me in Atlanta Georgia. He didn't like that until I showed him my military ID and he said never mind. He got back into his car and left. I know these cars are noisy but come on. Sometimes the carbs can be as load as the exhaust, too. By the way, I wasn't doing what the cop said I was doing. It was around 11:30 am and there was quite a bit of traffic and there were loads of hot cars going up and down the road at that time. Could have been anyone.

Would this be a good indicator for build week on all the 06A 69 cars since they were all dated 06A? I was told that my car is a true 06A built car, I suppose this 41 69 tank date would comfirm it. Kurt when you added my tank date you have it as 41 60 on the list.
850  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Car on the home page on: September 13, 2010, 03:31:50 PM
Here's the information, also do an advanced search, many more hits.  Wink

Thanks.Yeah, did a search and I saw that post but didn't want to ASSUME this person was associated with getting the pics for this site. There was no indication where the pics were going to be viewed. On this site or someone elses site.
851  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Gas tank date question. on: September 12, 2010, 04:23:58 PM
Has there been anything concrete yet about the date code on the gas tanks? Unless I missed it I haven't seen anything in print except for the main post where the 'list' is. What I understand from that is the first number/s is the week stamped and then the year. Mine says 41 69 so can I assume April 1st or the 41st week of the model year which turns out to be around April 1st, maybe.

Just curious.
852  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Car on the home page on: September 12, 2010, 04:16:04 PM
Interested in sending pic for the home page. Where do I send mine? Did a search about pics for homepage but not familiar with who is who, so I wouldn't know for sure who is getting it.

Thanks.
853  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Gas tank cleaning - need help on: September 11, 2010, 12:15:03 AM
Probably because my car is unrestored and I want to keep it that way...I guess. There isn't anything suspect about the tank really. Very clean inside. I'm familiar with roller welding. It's done where I work in the stainless steel food equipment manufacturing industry. So the solder is from the filler tube. Didn't think of that. I just dumped out the solder, fixed a couple of tiny, tiny hairline cracks on top of the tank where it was crushed to the bottom of the trunk well. It just has a bunch of undercoating on it that has to be removed now.
854  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Gas tank date codes on: September 08, 2010, 08:21:33 PM
Found this post so I am adding my date code as well. Dropped tank this past weekend and found 41 69 on my 06A Z28.
855  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Gas tank cleaning - need help on: September 08, 2010, 03:09:43 PM
I just pulled the tank from my 69 Z last weekend. It is covered with undercoating and needs to come off. What should I do here? Also, after I took out the sender I pic up the tank and shook it and heard something bouncing around, so I shook it out and it was a bunch of solder like material. Kind of flat and looked like it was sqeezed out when the tank was soldered together. Can't think of any other reason it would be there?
