1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1st Gen Driveshaft Design - Did GM Make a Mistake? on: June 28, 2006, 01:37:28 PM
It would be hard to believe that GM would not correct a mistake like that before making over 500,000 driveshafts, so I have been very intrested to find out why too.  My '67 has always had a vibration, and I think it must be the driveshaft.  If the original design engineer would just visit this fourm and tell us all what the H***.  We may never know.

My experience with mucie's is that they are all old now, and the aluminum case expands making them much weaker than when they were new.  I had a saginaw in my '67 and did blow it up with my stock 275/327.  But I was a stupid kid at the time Grin
I had to have a muncie after that because everybody told my how much better they were.  I probably blew up atleast 6 of them in a few years.  I did find that the 1 inch countershaft mucie's did live longer.  And also, the muncie's don't shift well in higher RPM's.

I agree with hotrod on a T-10 if he just has to bang gears and blow up parts Grin

I am planing on finding a correct date coded saginaw to put back into my '67, and just drive it a little bit smarter.
So if your Saginaw has a date code of "R7C20"  I am intrested in buying it.
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / '67 camaro owner new to forum. on: June 08, 2006, 11:24:14 AM
Hi everyone.

I am new to this forum and just introducing myself.

I am the 2nd owner of my '67 camaro.  My step father special ordered the car in 1967, and I worked for him to earn the car.
I have owned it from 1978 to now.  It is a 275hp 327 4speed car, nantucket blue with black interior with very few options. I restored the car in 1987.  My step dad made me sign a contract when I bought the car that I would keep it original.  I was pissed back then (I was 15 when I finally had it paid for) but I am glad now as I hope this car will keep getting more valuable.  There seems to be more interest it this car I have allways considered plain jane.  Of coarse I street raced it in high school, and blew a big hole in the bottom of the original transmission that I had just spent a lot of money having rebuilt.

I live in northern Utah, and have drove it all year long for the past 3 years because I am swaping drive train, dash board, etc. in my daily driver ('67 elcamino) with parts from a '98 Z-28. I planned on only taking 3 or 4 months to do it, so I did'nt think I would have to drive my camaro in the winter.  Thankfully I am getting close so I should'nt have to drive through this next winter.

So, I am planning on doing a restoration on my camaro after the camino is done.  I am going to start to round up some correct parts like the transmission, carb, etc. that have been replaced over the years of use.  So I hope to use this web site to help me with all of the questions I will have, and to help anyone with the limited knowlege I have.

Bruce
