151  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: '69 RS Vacuum Actuators - Restorable or? on: June 01, 2012, 09:35:06 PM
I've installed the CHQ actuators in two cars in the past 5 years and they work perfectly. The set in my 68 gets a lot of use.

That sounds like a fun puzzle. Smiley Assuming you have all or most of the parts, I also would start with the evaporator case and the under dash components. And, like Lakeholme said, read and understand how the vacuum, electrical, and cable systems all work together. Make sure all the ducts are sealed relatively tight with some thick foam tape.

Was this clamp on all 67-69 cars with P/S? Small block and big block?

I'm gonna guess its from the heat riser port getting hot.

Frames are specific to each year. Although, they will all bolt in place 67, 68 and 69 all have minor differences, most notable is the lower control arm bump-stop location, I think. There are measurement specifications in the service manual so you can check your replacement for straightness.

You know, people replace subframes for alot of reasons. Some people "upgrade" to a new style frame or remove a good one from a rusted shell, but also there are a bunch laying around that are bent or have rusted body mount points and you have to decide if its worth repairing. I replaced the frame in my 68 because it was bent. I replaced it with a decent used 68 camaro frame that cost me $400. I made sure when I went to buy a frame, I took measurments to check for straightness. As for the frames "sagging" over time and requiring additional shims... seems to me you would have to remove shims to maintain the camber angle, therfore, running out of shims.
I may have considered buying a new frame for my 68 if they were available at the time. My 2 cents.  Smiley

I thought about that, but the plunger, among other things, are much different. Fortunately, my 68 is not a "numbers" show car.

I'll be there with a 68 and a 69 as I am only 25 minutes away. I had a great time last year and met some great people.

No problem, I guess there's not that much info on the pumps out there. I just drilled the extra hole in my wiper motor to make the repro pump work. Thanks.

160  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 67-68 Washer pump on: May 11, 2012, 08:12:32 PM
I recently went to replace my inoperative washer pump on my 68 with a repro and it didnt look like the one on the car. The pump on my car looks like the 67 style. So, now i guess one of two things is going on, either mine was replaced with a used 67 pump at some point, or maybe it is a carry over in production. Does anyone have an idea if the 67 washer pump was used in the first part of 68? Also, is there a date identification on the pumps? My 68 is a 12D LA build. Thanks.
I wish someone made replacement plungers for these pumps.

Ok, the first zero is light but you can still see the full circle. The second zero is slightly deeper but not as deep as the rest of the digits.

Oops, I think I lost sight of the original question on this thread. I need to inspect the zeros for a light stamp? Be right back...

Looks like my alternator is stamped 1100843 61A 8L27.

Marty, I've got my 12B Norwood car with A/C. Engine build is 11/21 and it has its original 61a alternator. I'll post the stamp info when I get a chance.

The "^^" is the letter "M" for the old Modine logo.
