4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 Blue Interior SEAT BELT Question on: June 18, 2008, 12:15:33 AM
My wife is restoring a 67 SS 396.

She has a 717 (Blue) Interior.
Is the original 717 a (Dark/Medium/Bright) Blue?
The interior that came with the car looked original and is rather light in color and she has had the buckets/etc.. reskinned with a light blue color.

Should her seat belts be a dark blue or should they be a light or bright blue?
She paid good $ on ebay for seatbelts last week and they are dark and she is trying to decide wether or not to look for a lighter blue seat belt kit. (she did buy a dark blue carpet to suit her preference.

Any ideas or help appreciated.
Thanks!
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Brake Pedal Assembly Paint Color?? on: September 30, 2007, 09:43:30 PM
We are talking about the entire assembly that holds the brake pedal arm and bolts to the underside of the dash. (It looks like the brake pedal arm is black but we still are thinking the assembly should be silver)
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Brake Pedal Assembly Paint Color?? on: September 30, 2007, 09:09:44 PM
For a 67 Camaro SS 396
We have the brake pedal assembly out of the car and might as well brush off the surface rust and paint it before re-installing it.
Any idea what the original color/finish was?
By the looks of it, we think a plain silver paint would work.
Comments appreciated!
Thanks
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 396 Alternator Bracket Question on: April 13, 2007, 12:25:22 PM
KevinK, thanks for posting a pic of your motor.. Looks Great.

I compared my Edelbrock #2161 intake - location of upper alternator bracket threaded hole to the upper alternator bracket threaded hole on a cast iron 4 barrel hi-rise intake I have layring around and the hole on the Edelbrock sits approximately 1/2" lower than stock and that is why the alternator bracket will not bolt up correctly.

In an email I received from Edelbrock about this issue, they bypassed discussion of the alternator bracket hole and informed me I might have hood clearance issues.
Seems that the only hood clearance issues mentioned by Edelbrock sales lit is problems for a Corvette.
So I think I will install the hood hinges, core support and hood this weekend to check for myself (none of the front sheet metal is on the car at this time.

Anyone out there use an Edelbrock #2161 on a BBC in a 1967 Camaro with a regular style hood?
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 67 396 Alternator Bracket Question on: April 12, 2007, 01:06:28 AM
Working on a 67 Camaro SS 396.
We did not have any of the alternator or power steering brackets so we ordered them.

The top bolt hole on the alternator bracket does not line up with the hole on the edelbrock intake.
The bottom bolt on the alternator bracket is attached to the top water pump bolt.
Take a look at the pic and you can see the top bolt does not line up...

Am I just completely missing how it should be bolted up?

Thanks.

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / BBC vs. SBC Motor Mount Towers on: January 21, 2007, 03:29:35 PM
We have a 67 Camaro SS 396.
It was a factory 396 car but it had a 350 when we got the car.
We are putting a 396 back in it.
We ordered big block motor mount towers.
The new big block motor mount towers look pretty much exactly the same as the existing towers that had the 350 mounted at one point.
We are thinking that when the original 396 was blown up and replaced with a 350 that the motor mount towers were never changed.
If that is the case, we will return the new towers we ordered.

Is there a noticable difference between big block motor mount towers and small block motor mount towers?

Any opinions appreciated.
Thanks.

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 67 396 Exhaust Opinions on: December 12, 2006, 04:48:11 PM
We have a 67 SS 396 Camaro that we have been working on for my wife and I would like to buy her an exhaust kit for Christmas.

I am looking for opinions on should I buy 2-1/2" or 3" ??

I know she wants dual mufflers (most likely flowmasters)
New headers (will get her ceramic coated if possible for heat reduction)

So I am thinking about just buying her an entire kit and giving her something to smile about.
This has been an on-going project for a couple years now.
The car has recently received new quarters and door skins.
The big block was pro rebuilt with a mild cam.
The car was actually on a rotisserie so now its all clean and shiny underneath.
Seats are all re-done and ready to go too.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Long Water Pump on 396 in '67 Camaro? on: May 25, 2006, 01:12:37 PM
Well we are gonna see about getting short water pump brackets for the power steering and alternator.
Just really depends on how difficult it will be to find the right stuff.
One thought is we have all the long pump stuff but if we can find the short pump stuff we go with that.

67 SS 396
just received a 670cfm holley street avenger for it
going to be getting the car back from body shop any day now
going to be getting the interior back any day now.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Long Water Pump on 396 in '67 Camaro? on: May 19, 2006, 11:37:43 PM
We have a factory BB 67 SS.
The original big block is long gone.
We have purchased a 402 BB out of a 71? Camaro that came with all the pulleys and brackets that is a long water pump style.

Any ideas if a long water pump setup on a big block will work in a 67 Camaro?

Sure would be nice as would save us $ having to buy all short water pump stuff.

Thanks.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / small block vs. big block motor mount towers on: April 17, 2006, 03:00:28 PM
I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question but have never had a big block car before.
Have a 67 Camaro SS 396 car (all indications are it was a true 396 from the factory car)
The car came with a small block as the story said the big block was toasted years ago.

Are big block motor mount towers always different from small block motor mount towers?

The car is at the body shop now and a 402 big block is at the shop right now getting done and I was wondering if we need to ordeer big block motor mount towers OR if there is a chance the ones currently installed will work.

Any input appreciated.

Thanks.
FYI, its my wifes car we have had 6 years now and she is all over me to get it back on the road.
Completely dissassembled the car and put it on a rottisserie where it sat for 5 years.
Bottom of car got POR-15 and their chassis coat black.
Subframe has been blasted and powder coated.
Car is getting new quarter skins, door skins and fenders.
They were not in terrible shape but just enough that new steel made more sense.
Car will go back to Marina Blue
Turbo 400 tranny
3.73 rear end.
She tore down all the seats and wire brushed the seat frames and re-painted them even. The seats with new cushions and coverings should be back to us this week.
If all goes well, motor and car come back to us early to mid may then we start slamming it back together.
