826  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: April 10, 2011, 08:40:09 PM
Several people are working on putting together original driveshaft information for 67-69 Camaros. Items of most interest at this point are below.

If you have an original driveshaft and would be willing to post information about your car, it would be very much appreciated. Here is what to include...

Year of car- 1968
Norwood or Los Angeles car- NOR
Month and week of vehicle assembly- 01B
Engine- MO
Transmission- M21
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint)- will need to measure
Driveshaft casting number- ? need to look for that but did not notice one before
Type of attachment to pinion yoke. There are two types: U bolts and the strap and bolts method.- U bolts
Code stamped on front of passenger side axle tube.- BV1129
Paint stripes and a picture (if possible)- Picture of lime green looking paint stripes on trans. yoke.
Position of the u-joint flanges on each end. Some cars were "in-line" and others were "clocked" about 30 degrees off from each other- in line

Post in this thread if you want. If you would rather not post, but still contribute, send an email to me please. Thanks.

A good friend is restoring his 69 SS396 Nova and they found this under the carpet. Its dated Dec. 7, 1968 and was wondering if anyone had found this in their camaro. Per JohnZ it is a random audit inspection sheet which I would think would be not that common to find. Anybody else find one? Can you post a picture or supply and information?

The Charlotte Autofair is this weekend. If you are coming to the AACA judging school on Friday, I'll be helping with registration, so let me know you are there. On Saturday at the national meet, I'll be judging that morning.  (Don't worry I never judge Camaros at national meets!) But in the afternoon, I'll be the old guy sitting with the yellow 68 at the bottom of the hill with the HNR badge that says Phillip on it.  Grin
Never been there Phillip but need to make plans to attend next year. Would love to see a follow up after the show of some pics, # of cars, etc.
And good luck Jerry! Was at Jerry's on Sunday as he was helping me again and I had the pleasure of hearing that 67 Z D-stocker come to life. Wow, it sounds wicked.

Looked at a 68 survivor and the straps have the same large off center offset. Very pronounced!
830  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My 69 not that much fun anymore on: April 02, 2011, 07:36:34 PM
For legends (not sure about the new Carlisle judging) base coat clear is fine so why the paint change? JMHO, but I would give this a lot of thought as it seems you have other toys to enjoy. I find the challenge of Legends just that challenging. There and other places you are around car guy/gals that know our cars. But whatever course you take, make it fun. Grin
831  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Gas tank strap question on: April 02, 2011, 07:27:10 PM
Agree Gary and Jeff concerning restoring what you have. I just was surprised at the difference and thought maybe there was a lot of variation that either could be correct. Today I took care of the little bend/twist the one had from taking it off. No pits so they will be restored. Would be interesting to hear from others that have originals to know what variation they had, if they did.
832  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Gas tank strap question on: March 31, 2011, 08:31:18 PM
We are restoring our 68 and recently I was reviewing the condition of the orig. gas tank straps. Except for one being a little bent from  when it was taken off it seemed like they would be quite usable but thought about just purchasing some new ones but one thing jumped out, that being the offset of the bulge. Maybe it had to do with how they were put in a press (process variation) but both have a very similar offset. Looking at one set of reproduction this bulge seemed to be in the middle. Is this normal or did they in fact have that much process variation that straps varied from having the bulge anywhere from the centerr to being way off center?
833  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 12 Bolt Paint Process Questions on: March 22, 2011, 02:31:20 PM
Thanks John as always! Do you know if that cardboard cover covered the slinger (what we call it) that protects the pinion seal from getting junk in. I was not sure it it was painted or not?Huh
834  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 12 Bolt Paint Process Questions on: March 21, 2011, 08:12:04 PM
Our 12 Bolt is re-built and I'm in the process of final prep prior to paint. When the factory masked off the yoke was the slinger (between yoke and housing) masked off alsol? Were the brake cylinders attached during this paint process or put on after paint?  
Thank You!
835  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Polishing and Buffing Aluminum on: March 18, 2011, 04:56:15 PM
Hi, I'm the owner of the Grotto Blue 68 SS/RS Camaro.  Plainly put, all aluminum parts should be polished, than a caustic bath is used to remove old anodizing, than re anodizing.  Hopes this helps.

Hi Keith! Just wondering if the above is correct or that the caustic bath would be first before polishing?
836  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rear End Cover - Replace or Repair? on: March 14, 2011, 08:16:04 PM
If the car can sit for awhile, spray it with polyester (body shop can easily) body filler, let it dry well, and sand it down. It should fill all the minor rust pits and look like new. Nice to keep the orig. piece IMHO.
Just a suggestion......
837  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: DF wheels on: March 07, 2011, 04:29:27 PM
I need a set of 'upside down' DF 15x6 rally wheels. Any leads out there?

If you turn up a pair of 5/3/68's and  you pass on them, I would be interested Smiley

Sent you a PM but low and behold I have two May 3, 1968 wheels.  They must have batched a lot that day Grin

839  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: DF wheels on: March 04, 2011, 07:07:13 PM
I need one more K19 DF wheel with the 1 1/8 wide slots. Just one! I aquired three of them over the past 2 years for an average of $90 each. I like the 69 dated replacements because the prices are usually reasonable and I'm not putting them on a numbers Z28. Anyone got one of these with the wide slots they can part with? Thanks!

Paul, That wheel on Ebay has the narrow 1" slots. I have 1 of those I'm going to use as a temporary 4th wheel untill I find one more with the 1 1/8" wide slots. Truth is, probably won't be able to tell the difference once the trim ring is on but I'm just being picky.  Smiley Thanks for lookin!


John, I have one K19 wheel that can go. Long story on how I got it but someone tried to doctor it by hiding the coding. You can send me a PM.

Rodent (Jim) did not follow up on that but will check it out this weekend. Will send you a PM after I check.

840  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Sway Bar End Links - Correct Finish & Bushings on: March 03, 2011, 09:17:22 PM
We are always learning so thank you! Wow, a 20K mile ram air 4! mama mia and a 6K 67 corvette. molta mama mia
John Z is bang on as usual!

The 6,000 mile 67 Corvette has WB2C bolts and the bushings are the small diameter ones the same size as the AMK Bushings B-10243 which show the GM part number # 381957.
 I also looked at his 70 Ram Air 4 Trans Am, 20,000 mile car, TOTALY original, it also has small diameter bushings and the WB bolts have WB only.

I have pulled off 1 of my original WB bolts, and I was surprised to find the bolt shank diameter is .342 ( 11/32") NOT 3/8" as I posted earlier. They do have 5/16 Thread on the top. The HBC bolts are the same diameter, as well as another set I have. I allways thought they were 3/8" but they are not.

The AMK small diameter bushings apprear to be correct at this time, and the hole size is smaller than 3/8 to correspond with original bolts. I also checked some Generic aftermarket link kits and they are 3/8" bolts with the larger diameter type bushings.

 Chick and Jeff - I Hope this helps.
