Dave,

Place the support against the firewall behind the pad and fold the pad flap in front on the outside of the support.  Pad should not be between the support and firewall.

I purchased the same pad and had no issues installing it.

4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Window Guide Plates on: January 06, 2015, 09:24:14 PM
Need help, I am about to reinstall my door glass that my body man disassembled without marking the parts.  I have the Fisher Service Manual and cannot see where the 2 guide plates are attached.  These are the rectangular plates with 2 holes that are covered with a nylon type fabric. There are two per door.
See pic below

Thanks in advance

Also I might need some help with which bolts go to which parts, such as the window regulator etc slowly figuring them out.

It is decent size 36" x 25" and is printed on thin paper and has numerous creases and tears around the edges.  Color is still bright.

Seller said his mother brought it home from a dealership that was going to trash it and put it away where it was forgotten about.

I like the Super Chevrolet Service logo that has Prompt Dependable Quality on the banner above it.  So it must be a Chevrolet dealership.

Lower right corners reads " Poster 1190-7 Printed in U.S.A. Copyright 1968 by Merchandising Directors Inc 7338 Woodward Avenue Detroit Mich 48202.

This will look great on the garage wall, I am very pleased with my 40.00 purchase.  I am really like to retro advertising of the era.

Need assistance in determining a fair valve asking price.

Thanks in advance

Picked this up on ebay, was supposedly from a dealership.  Copyright 1968 by Merchandising Directors Inc
Appears period correct with some wear, color are still bright, looks great framed, plus my car has air conditioning so I couldn't resist.
Anybody seen anything like this before or something similar?

If you don't want it to fall off and be lost, I'd suggest careful cleaning and use of an appropriate metal ADHESIVE rather than JB weld.   I consider JB weld to be a 'metal filler' as opposed to an adhesive?   Your experience may differ.

An alternative might be to have a new tag made which matches your original tag, attach the new tag per factory specs, and KEEP the original tag in your glove compartment or console?

Do you know of a vendor who makes custom tags?

Might be a dumb question but I am looking for suggestions to permanently reattach my Harrison radiator tag.  The original tag had a small tang on it made of spring steel that has broken off.  The radiator is now installed in the car so I really do not want to remove it.  Do you think some JB Weld would hold it?  It is a UI tag that isn't being reproduced and not sure if the vendors would do a custom tag.

Anyway thanks in advance for your suggestions

10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / RS Vacuum Hose Route on: November 26, 2014, 05:32:59 AM
On a 68 RS vacuum hose routing, does the engine vacuum line go behind the fender with the wiring harness while the other two vacuum to the switch route over the inner fenderwell.  That is what I interpret from the AIM pages 430 & 433, but I would like to hear from original 68 RS owners

Thanks in advance

Tim, you might email or call Bill Mock. He is an old Corvette judge from Oklahoma that rebuilds water pumps and has a lot of the old clamps. I just bought  several from him for my 69 Z and my 66 Chevelle SS big block car. He seems to really know his stuff and has been collecting them for years.

Thanks for the tip Len, I ordered 4 wittek clamps from Bill Mock, 2 were nos from 1969.  I also purchased a rebuilt water pump from him.. I spent a lot of time on the phone with him.  Sounds like a great guy!

Well I got lucky and just picked up a 68 Condenser with the correct 90 degree fitting by calling an ad that was 6 months old, you just never know. 

New question is can I bench test the condenser with a hand held vacuum tester before installing it or should I send it out  to a shop. I guess cnce installed and I borrow a vacuum pump to evacuate the system it would not be to hard to pull and replace if it leaks, but makes more sense I guess to test now if possible

Looks like I will soon have a 67 restored condenser by Classic Auto Air to put on ebay.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Could someone with an original 68 A/C system (before 01C build date) post a pic or describe the condenser barb fittings.  On my car both fittings are coming off at a 90 degrees which appear to be more like the 67 condensers I see for sale at Heartbeat.  See link below for pictures.  I was wondering if they could have still been using these style condensers at the time of my build.

Try PB Blaster, it says on the can that it helps rejuvenate a toilet tank flapper which is made of rubber.
