Maintenance / TH400 Rebuild
« on: February 09, 2019, 04:34:49 PM »
Well, I have been running a Chevelle "CX" TH400 for a few years as my factory installed unit is laid up in "bad order" account of shuddering shifting  2-3 shift under WOT. Well I have a close friend that is restoring a 65 Buick GS Riv w/ TH400 switch-pitch version. I found this opportunity as the old commercial goes, " I always wanted to work on a transmission,,,,,".

Garage Talk / 1968 SS/RS Fresh from Storage
« on: July 16, 2018, 07:08:06 AM »
Went to the PNWCC ALL Camaro Show today & had forgotten about a Couple of Tacoma Wa 1968 Camaro finds that a Buddie Chris had sent me. All the info I have is Stored since 1979 found and have been flipped twice, All I can hope it that they end up in the hands of a restorer to bring them or each back into the Hobby, They were flipped and eventually flipped to a high price which seemed no room to keep the restorer in the safe zone (read upside down)

No other details or access to look at them for originality purposes.

Originality / 1968 Z28 Alternator Fan Question
« on: June 10, 2018, 07:47:39 PM »
I was at a car show recently and a 69'er fella brought up the topic of some Z's use Hook style Fan with regard (application) to my 68Z.
I stood there with a silly (confused) & grin w/o questioning in my mind why (?)
my 68Z  1100814 37 amp date coded 7H10 Alt has a 1967 style fan on it.
It really looks like the 1967 Fan shown in 67-68 302 facts book (rev 4) page # 14, it (Alt) does have a 3.200inch deep groove pulley.

OK, Can this be a situation like; 2 codes used in 68 for the Dizzy, early car Black Ashtrays, Non disc brake pedal medallion pads, & all these little differences we encounter along the way?

This may have been discuss before, I search a bit before asking.

Restoration / 67-68 Brake Line Clip attachment
« on: June 08, 2008, 08:06:26 PM »
What Method or Tool is used to properly secure NEW 1967-1968 Brake line (also 3/8" Fuel Line) Clip asm Part Number 3881339 to the Body or subframe.

The new clip is in the AMK book Page 150 Part Number B-10317, Red, double ended clip w/ 0.27" rivet.

The ASM manual (68) shows a detail of the clip with a "PUSH RIVET". page 123.

The new clips from AMK & Others appear to have the rivet as part of the clip. I am not sure how folks have been Clinching or Bucking this tight to the car structure?
