I ended up using a large pair of angle pliers.  Thanks for the response.  I found a place locally where I could order one.  I was surprised that Harbor Freight doesn't carry them.

I'm going to be replacing the TT2's on my Camaro with a set of used rally wheels.  I need to remove the old wheel weights before I start painting.  Can someone lead me to a "wheel weight removal tool" source?

Thanks,  Dave

I've decided to use the clip shown in "Zman1969"'s post.  Easy to install and remove.  I was able to find them locally .(Fastenal)

Thanks, Dave

I have a '69 with a 4053 carb and the 2 piece throttle rod that is 1/4" with a groove around it. What clip is being used to hold the linkage to the carb?  I'm having trouble finding something locally.

Thanks,  Dave

I"ve had no issues with Metro.
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Gas cap for '69 Camaro GM part number #3931449 on: January 24, 2015, 11:48:06 PM
I suspect this cap is no longer correct for a '69.  A '69 gas cap should be "vented".   The caps I've been getting are in AC Delco boxes and use GM#3931449.  The last 3 caps I have gotten are not actually vented causing the needle and seat to seep. This causes a gas smell to build up the my garage after driving my car.  I have to remove the gas cap to relieve the back pressure.

These caps are marked "Vented" but are in fact "Non Vented caps"   The non-vented caps appear to be of the same construction.

Where can I get a correct gas cap?  My local dealerships don't stock the caps any longer but can order them, but they are not correct.

Ideas please.  I have been able to find good caps in the past but not lately.  Dave
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Burnished brown Z/28's on: December 10, 2014, 10:57:53 PM
My '69 Z/28 clone was originally burnished brown with a dark brown vinyl top and ivory interior.  It was painted dover white with the vinyl top remioved 2 years before I bought in the '05.  A friend here locally has an original burnished brown Z/28 with black interior. It's a very nice car but not my cup of tea. I would have not bought the car I did back in '06 had it been burnished brown.  I don't care for the color.  I have seen quite a few "61" painted '69's over the years.  Most of them must be in Nor-Cal.

Sounds to me like the timing chain was put on with the cam and crank not indexed correctly.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Swapping a 700R 4 into a 67 on: August 19, 2014, 11:32:56 PM
BEWARE!  You may not be happy with a 700R4  The gear ratio spacing is not the best.  First gear is very low compared to other options.  The 700R4 shifts from 1st to 2nd and feels like it just shifted from 1st to 3rd. With a 3:73 rear gear I didn't like it at all.  I pulled out the 700R4 and gave it away. Replaced it with an Autogear M22W 4speed.

You can change the ratios in a 700R4 or use one from a Corvette that has better ratio spacing.

Someone over at Team Camaro makes custom stickers.. I had him make a couple for me a few years ago.  383 Turbo-Fire 425 Hoesepower sticker for my ZZ383 crate engine.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Do You Still Have Your First Car? on: June 28, 2014, 06:31:20 PM
My Dad and I built a VW Manx dune buggy that became my first driver in '69.  But my first real car was a '68 Z/28 that I bought in '71.  I had it only 2 years.  When sold in '73 I bought a '56 Nomad.  A few others over the years. I bought my current '69 Camaro in '2005 turning a gramdma car into a Z/28 clone.  ZZ383, Autogear M22W. Moser 12 Bolt.  All the good stuff.

Would the date stamp be a "T" and not a "V"?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stripe delete on: June 05, 2014, 03:09:47 PM
I considered buying a '68 Z/28 in Rally Green back in '71.  It was a stripe delete car and was still original paint.  I didn't care for the color and the motor had already been patched up from spinning a rod bearing.  I didn't buy it.  It had the numbers matching "MO" engine with the matching VIN.

In hind sight I guess I shouldn't have let it get away.  I later bought a Lemans Blue '68 Z. and only had it for 3 years.  Wonder where it is today?
