There is an original owner X77 in NC with no tach, no console, no gauges. My 69 X33 has no console or gauges with a center tach but for some reason is a RS. It is documented in several books when equipment requirements were changed in 69. The option price usually changed also.

Isn,t  the 400 small block externally balanced? I think the flex plate and harmonic balancer do it.

I think the question is what sells the best today, not what sold the best. I think Hugger Orange seems to be the hot color now on non original color cars. But I prefer the color on the trim tag.
289  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What other steering columns will fit 1969 Camaro? on: January 13, 2011, 02:28:50 PM
I bought a tilt column some years from a guy whose company name was GM Tilt. The inside parts looked different but exterior and connections were exact. I installed it and plugged in the wiring, the connector matched, but the wiring was wrong. Turn signals were crossed up with something else. I called him and he new exactly which wires to move. During this I asked where he found enough colunms to run a business and he said he got the colunms from Novas, Venturas, and Oldsmobile Omegas. He said mine was an Oldsmobile unit because of the wiring difference but you would never know by looking. I still have the non tilt original if someone needs one.

NC runs a report on all out of state titles on 1972 and older cars before issuing a NC title. But all they will tell you is that the car or it,s engine or trans is not listed as stolen.

No one has given me the answer. A friend thinks the trans linkage connection is the problem but I have not found a part to work yet. I did play with the adjustments and got it into low but now it does not go into park correctly. I am installing a car lift soon and get back on it with out laying on the floor.
292  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 RS for sale on Ebay.... whats wrong with this car on: December 22, 2010, 08:52:12 AM
I don,t think anyone was mean. They were just showing expertise in a hobby that they are serious about. Watching BJ a 69 came through at 70K or so and shortly later a very nice one came through at 1/2 that. My wife asked why and I told the first was real and correct and the second one probably was not. The important thing is to try get what you pay for and what you want. I paid more for for my 52,000 unrestored 69 L78 than I did for my frame off 69 Z28 RS even though the Z is very much nicer.
293  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Fuel Return lines on: December 14, 2010, 10:17:15 AM
Mine ie a Carter Q Jet. It has a line in the front to the right of the fuel inlet. A 3/8 rubber line will slide up on it. It is open now.
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Fuel Return lines on: December 14, 2010, 08:23:12 AM
I have a Q jet on my clone SS car that does not have a return fuel line. The return port is open and I have never seen any fuel come out even though I have driven the car under all conditions from normal driving to shifting at 5500 RPM full throttle. I was going to plug the port but a knowlegable friend says I should not because it vents the carb. Should I plug It or plumb it away from the engine or leave it alone? If fuel did come out it would spray right on the intake manifold.
295  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Engine too high on Z/28 on: November 15, 2010, 08:06:29 AM
Holley has an intake that is very close in height of the original Z intake. It was on my Z when I bought it and fit fine. If you determine that is your problem I can get you the model number. I still have it but have put an original intake on the car.
296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: rectangular port intake on round port heads on: October 26, 2010, 01:18:09 PM
Thanks John,
I think we will try it for appearance. The car has more power than the tires can take already. This is that same LA car orange car Joo8 we discussed before.
297  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / rectangular port intake on round port heads on: October 25, 2010, 01:56:07 PM
My brother has whats is supposed to be a 72 454 in his 69 ss. He was told the heads were rectangular port but they are not. Since the car looks like a L78 he bought a 163 L78 intake. If installed on the round port heads will it work? Which gasket to use? Will performance suffer over and aftermarket aluminum round port intake? Any opinions appreciated.

My X33 RS is a Scuncio car from RI. I just thought this guy might remember it but he has not replied.
299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Carolina Blue/Powder Blue '69 on: October 19, 2010, 12:50:54 PM
