676  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67-69 Shock Retainer/washer on: February 04, 2012, 06:25:17 PM
Sure did help Mike so thank you for the great pics and John for clarifying the spatter paint!
Now what has me a little bewildered relates to the retainers/washers Mike displayed vs. the AIM calling out the same part number, #5544049. Does anyone have info on that part #? I do not remember any original retainers with the nut hex indented in the retainer but that means next to zero Grin Thanks again Mike and John!

Jerry is a true professional!  He was awesome to deal with.  Sent my radio to him 3 weeks ago.  I have it back already and it works great!  He's everything Chick said and more.
Great guy.

Thanks for the recommendation Chick.

Your welcome Bob!  Yep, Jerry is a first class guy for sure.
I can hear the music now Smiley

Did not intend to have a double post. Lost my internet connection and thought it did not go only to find out it did.
My apologies!  Embarrassed  Tried to delete one but it will not let me.......
679  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 67-69 Shock Retainer/washer on: February 04, 2012, 07:59:09 AM
I thought this was one of our original shock retainers (one on the right).
Still has the trunk spatter on it but it measures 1.5" in diameter??
Other originals I have have similar design bur measure in that 1 3/8" ballpark (1.390").
Now I'm not so sure it was off our 68 but have no idea where else it would have come from???
Has anyone observed or have these 1.5" shock retainers/washers?
The AIM calls out the same part# shock retainer for the front and rear shocks.
680  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Documenting 68 Camaro Fasteners & Hardware on: February 02, 2012, 10:01:06 PM
Identified screw #3846202 5/16-18 X 3/4" lg w/captured washer 3/4" dia.
Did not complete entire AIM search but this screw is found on pages 61, 63, 73, 144, 145
Would love to note what others have found pertaining to their #3846202.
The picture of these two screws came out of our 68 01B NOR built Camaro.

Here is our orig. rear brake bracket where these screws are used.

The good news, AMK sells the same exact screw under G4348 but that is only for two.
Anyone have a AMK catalog to review bulk order AMK part #'s?
681  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Documenting 68 Camaro Fasteners & Hardware on: February 02, 2012, 09:43:55 PM
In an effort to determine what would normally be considered the correct fastener for different applications this thread is being developed to coincide with similar threads for 67 (hopefully) and 69 Camaro fasteners.  For a preliminary on how this came about please review the birth in thread and
This effort will need the support and creation of sorts of a "team" and I have volunteered to be the team scribe and a team member. This could be huge in benefits for all of us and for years to come. Let the investigation and data collection begin.
Please help  Grin
682  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: February 02, 2012, 07:12:01 PM
I agree Dave with what you submitted before and now 100% but hopefully more members will assist and get involved. And maybe we need to have a thread on Team Camaro also as they do have a lot of very active members and not everyone works both forums.
No doubt this is a very worthwhile project that could benefit the hobby immensely.
683  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Factory Fastener Discussion on: February 01, 2012, 11:18:59 PM
Actually I was happy to read your last sentence…here’s why; I am only familiar with the 69 AIM and I have no idea what the similarities are for each of the three years. Having said that, I think each year's data should be kept separate. If you agree, would you mind heading up the 68's data record keeping? This would mean keeping track of all the fasteners (screws, bolts, nuts, and washers & their PN’s) as they correspond to the AIM. If you agree, I will be more than happy to head up the same for the 69. That would only leave us someone for the 67.

Your thoughts?

Yes, I will assist with the 68 by being an active team member and team scribe! Oh boy, this is going to be interesting... By the way, two of my four #2 & #3 sub-frame mount bolts were pitted up and a member sent me his four from his Camaro since he was doing major susp. changes and his four were the exact same head markings. If I remember his car was a 67 that he purchased new and still owns.
684  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: February 01, 2012, 09:58:11 PM
These are our original sub-frame bolt examples from our 68 01B NOR Camaro.
Left hand bolt #3912533 used in #2 & #3 sub-frame mounts. Page50 1968 AIM.
Right hand bolt #3914816 used in #1 sub-frame to rad. support mount. Page50 1968 AIM.

Top bolt- # 3912533 Bottom bolt- #3914816

Marty, you have added some great suggestions along with some others so that is good! We might want to keep this as simple as possible or members may choose not to paticipate. Example: Instead of the picture with a tape measure etc., you could use one of your examples with the red measurement lines to show/communicate how a screw/bolt should be reported. Pete brings up some excellent points. I will assist anyway I can.
686  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: January 31, 2012, 12:00:51 AM
These are now back in the car but the door hinges to door and pillar had three different bolt suppliers. All three I have seen in other cars but it seemed so odd to have three different suppliers in one car but...... Grin
687  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: January 30, 2012, 11:51:24 PM
Dave got me thinking that he is on to something! He mentioned and showed a #9420415 with the 'D' logo and how it was used in many locations. Maybe what might be of help is to take this in smaller junks so it does not become so large we end up abandoning what can and will be an excellent exercise. I just spent time documenting all the front end screws called out in the 68 AIM. One screw jumps out at you if for anything the amount of locations and pure numbers. Screw # 9780422! 68 AIM pages include 137, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 149, & 153.
What is it used for? -Header panel to fender  -Inner fender to fender  -Support brace from fender to rad. support
Valance to fender extension  -Hood catch support  -Fan shroud brkt to rad. support  -Battery Tray  -Headlight housing
If members check cars and report back we can document the different head markings (suppliers) Marty has graciously put together. Example: Marty had each head marking numbered so with information from members we could at least have a feel for what were the predominant suppliers used for a specific part #. Just a thought!
688  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fasteners and headmarkings on: January 29, 2012, 11:02:50 PM
Marty there is some great work going on here but it is becoming quite apparent there are a lot of suppliers, right? Smiley
What I'm starting to think is it would be great to start to put part #'s with key componets and determine what the normal mix of suppliers were with a specific bolt. I will try to give the part # on any bolts I give in the future if I can find it.
Just finished rebuilding our M21 and all the side cover bolts are 'sbc' along with the tail-stock to main housing except for one 7/16 'L5'.
The 2 rear trans cushion mount bolts part#9419073 were 'bIs'
While cleaning the Fisher body window guides all the bolts were 'TTL'

689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: A Arm washer etc finish 1969 Z/28 on: January 29, 2012, 07:55:49 AM
Thanks Chick will get those originals restored properly. Finish on the bolt heads? repro's are dark gray, assume phosphate?

Yes Michael, phosphate! You can find phosphate info with the search key. I as many purchased the solution from Palmetto Enterprises ( Lot's of info on this phosphate process doing searches as well. Very easy process with the biggest thing being bolt/fastener prep (glass bead best).

Have not looked at a repop for years but they used to have thinner material.
