181  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: How to convert from R12 to R134 on a 69 Camaro on: August 02, 2009, 09:07:41 PM
I did a 134a changeover on a 69 a few years back and it works fine. I flushed ALL components with an A/C flush chemical first to remove ALL the old refrigerant oil. The older R12 refrigerant oils are not compatible with 134a. I replaced the receiver dryer, then added the right amount of 134a compatible oil to all the components, reassembled with new o-rings. The biggest problem I ran into was finding a working POA valve, which had nothing to do with the change to 134a. It still works great but It'll never blow as cold as an original working R12 system.

Funny, I have an original 1979 WT edition Z28 in my driveway right now.
184  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Replacement 15x6 DF wheels on: May 21, 2009, 11:48:28 PM
I have a friend who has a pair of 68 DF wheels on the front of his GMC S15 daily driver. He said he'd trade them for a pair of my 15x7s. Now, I just need to find 2 more...repro or original. If I could just get a full set elsewhere, that would be fine also.

Paul, I'm curious about the wheels your friend has. Post or email me a price if you get a chance. Thanks very much.

185  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Replacement 15x6 DF wheels on: May 19, 2009, 11:25:08 PM
Does anyone make a nice replacement for the Camaro 15x6 rally wheel (DF)? I know you can buy the 15x7 and 14x7 wheels all day long and some places sell a new 15x6 rally wheel but, Im trying to find out if they have the right offset or back spacing. More impotant, is the center part of the wheel almost flush with the rim where the valve stem hole is? I don't own a Z28 but I want the look of the narrow wheel without having to compete with Z owners trying to buy original DF wheels. Thanks guys.

If its not too late, Spectra Premium industries (SPI) is making OE style tanks with fuel pumps for EFI conversions. Part number GM32BFI. Rock auto sells it for about $450. Has pump and sending unit. I put EFI in my 68 and didn't find out about this set up until after I had already run a return line through my sending unit and mounted an external pump.

187  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original #s matching SS muncie 3 speed on: July 23, 2008, 07:08:03 PM
Yes. The stick is flat with muncie stamped on it.

My muncie 3 speed (behind a L48) works great. Real pleasure to drive. Dont want to beat on it too much though, parts are hard to come by.  I think they came standard behind 396 as well.

4 speed would be a little "cooler" though.

Anyone have any experience using the US made reproduction fenders (or any US repro) that Heartbeat City is selling for $750? Are they as good as GM? Are they better than the imports? Thanks.

190  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 master cylinder??? on: March 01, 2008, 05:46:49 PM
I bought a reman master for my 69 SS for about $20 or $30 with the intention of using the new parts in my original. I ended up just using the reman master on my car, keeping my original on the shelf for a later rebuild, and paying the core charge. I bought a Wagner rebuild kit in the begining and found it didnt have all the parts I needed.

191  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Can anyone think of a GM delay wiper switch NOT on the steering column? on: February 29, 2008, 01:06:33 PM
Second gen Camaros (79 and later for sure) use a dash mounted delay wiper switch.

Unfortunately, I left the car with its trim tag at the junk yard. I only took the complete engine. I could go back and see if it is still there, I'm always looking for reasons to go to the junk yard.
I'll try to get some pics of the engine pad out asap. Thanks for the interest.

194  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: GF432 on: November 14, 2007, 07:00:43 PM
I bought a GF432 from an AC Delco supplier a few tears ago. Its the fatter version (396) but its new and it works well. I agree, very hard to find. Check the AC Delco online catalog for GF432 or 5651480 or ask a local AC Delco supplier. Those are the numbers that are on the box.

195  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 69 388 block casting date vs build date on: November 13, 2007, 11:17:28 PM
I recently found a complete 350 300 hp engine in a junked 69 full size station wagon, original to the car. The interesting thing I found is the 388 block was cast in September of 1968 but the engine was assembled in February of 1969. Seems like a long time difference to me. Unfortunately, the block is cracked so I'm wondering if its worth documenting before I throw it away.
