It's also a very positive way to share some of the gathered information; and thus, helping, not harming, the hobby.  Thanks, CRG!!!

Mark X22,

Thanks for the help.  The bolt access is another good reason why they went to the clips, I suppose.

Sorry, don't have a scanner...

The 68 AIM clearly identifies the core seal (3937126) in the diagram as note #1 and the radiator seals (3937127-8) as #2, and each is coupled with #10 which states "Remove backing for installation".  That's how Ed established the process for gluing the seals.  The date for that page is 11-3-67 (C60/B3) and it shows no revision record for that particular page.  (Note his June date above for the last revision of the 68 AIM.)

If Ed happens to see this page, I think he has a scanner.  Help, Ed!

Hope this is of some help...

Dave,

Paul is right.

Actually, it comes with asking a lot of dumb questions to find good answers, I suppose.  Roll Eyes

Here's what Rich said about it:
"It's just a game anyway, a typical male way of trying to keep some type of score."   Grin

BTW, the prize is learning a lot of great stuff about your car and getting to know some great people!  Grin  Grin  Grin

Seeing many new names on the site and Spring is here, so I'm bringing this one back...

Let us know how much you drive!

And post about your driving "habits"...

(And notice I added an option for the "car-less".)

Ron, left it on until the end of the month...

Locking the voting for a while and letting this one "fade"...
1732  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Air Conditioning -Sealing on: March 31, 2007, 08:18:25 PM
One other question: How is the core seal placed so you can get at the bolt that holds down the support bar on the battery side?  ...If it is glued?
1733  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: rebuilding engine on: March 31, 2007, 07:23:48 PM
Well, once again, John is right!  I should have said, "motors out of trucks", because that's the reference I meant to make.  As in "someone found a wrecked truck with a good motor and put it in their car..."

Is the 350/350 too much for a powerglide?

Anyway, Dave, glad you are excited.  Keep us posted!
1734  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: rebuilding engine on: March 30, 2007, 03:34:01 PM
Dave and Paul,

Both NastyZ28 and Chevy-Camaro sites list the TDB engine code, but John actually gave more information than either one of them.

Actually, Dave, lots of "shade tree restorers" use truck motors.  They are generally reliable.
A few years ago, I restored a similar motor in my truck.  I "abuse" that truck all the time, and it still runs like a scalded dog.  For a cruiser, it's probably fine!
1735  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: rebuilding engine on: March 29, 2007, 12:09:36 PM
Dave,
Have you decided about your cam and carb, yet?
Are you staying with your powerglide?
1736  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: how can i find out what my original tire size was? on: March 24, 2007, 10:36:28 AM
Tstone,

I remember your earlier posts determining how large your wheels and tires could be.  So, now you're looking for original size wheel and tire?  The general information (not on your car specifically) that GM will send you lists 14" wheels with 6" rims and 7.35 x 14 tires as standard on a 68 like yours.

Unless you have original documentation or other info. you haven't shared...
1737  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: March 24, 2007, 09:41:05 AM
Thank you, too, Dave.

I think we have gotten a pretty balanced view of the issues --except perhaps a little more "negative" view of either look or rust-causing.  If anyone wants to say anymore --good or bad-- please do!  Otherwise I'm going to let this one "fade" down the page, again.

Really appreciate the votes and input!

1738  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Vin and other numbers...Am I interpreting correctly? on: March 23, 2007, 03:11:08 PM
Paul,

OK... OK... But as the story goes, they mistook the spanish word, "camarada" or the french word "comarade", which does mean friend and confidant  But then the press got a hold of it and pointed out that the word was closer to the spanish word "camaron" for "shrimp".
Where I'm from, we wish they had stuck with "Panther".

So, yes, talk with you soon, my friend!  Grin  Grin  Grin

it's your car do what makes you happy. with that being said......do keep all the original stuff so you could change it back if you were so moved.

zbo2 has a point:  It is your car...  Now, if you had posted under Originality, I'd be saying, "No... No... NO".  But you asked this question in General Discussion.  So what will make you happy for your car --long term?!?  Why did you buy it?  For what purpose will you restore it?  Will it be a trailered show car? (Which in your case, with those changes it will always be a clone...)  A drag strip champion? (Certainly not, without modification)  Or a cruiser? (For which a 327 with PG with a little paint and chrome was made for.)

A few years ago, I bought a Camaro similar to what you have.  A previous owner had started the cloning process.  It has actually cost quite a bit of money to restore it back to original.  And I'm still working on it.  The truly sad part is, he scrapped the original motor.  In that sense --even though his intentions were good and he passed it along at a fair price-- something irreplaceable was lost to the hobby.  I've got a restoration buddy who says, "It's like trying to replace a unicorn.  There aren't many left around!"

Also, if you make changes to the car and some day decide to sell it, document what you change as you go and sell it for what it really is.  We all owe that to the hobby!

Let us know what you decide and post pictures along the way.

Mark,

No holes, but I'll have to look about dimples...
It's going to be over a week before I can get to the car.  I have to work all weekend to help pay for the toys.
Thanks for the info on the glue.  I've actually got a tube of the same thing.  It's worth knowing it stands up under the heat.  I still think I'm going to glue my AC seals.  For my build date, that seems to be correct.  If it comes off after a while, I'll go back and clip it...
Thanks!

..Now, if anybody knows a source for the clips, let us know!
