After reading up a bit your are right. < I always thought they were all e-clips>

I found a few cars with retainer style, must have been easier to find these vs the correct e-clips

I have used my plater to renew the A.I.R. check valves without any detriment or damage to the rubber check valve internal flap. My plater process is COLD so heat is not an issue. Not without risk but I had personally work fine. The Cruise looks complicated with the two inlet tubes, diameter crimp, chain pull & wheel pulley. I am not sure if it can be done and retain functionality. Would be interesting to fin other donors and experiment with them first before committing to your in sue component.

Retaining Pins
Used on grooved shafts, these are also known as hairpin clips. 18-8 stainless steel are corrosion resistant and may be mildly magnetic. Zinc-plated steel pins are rust-resistant

Darrell, Do you know the Header brand and primary tube size. I noticed 67 w/ P.S.
If you know the exact PN or was it something that was found along the way- acquired with car?

FYI
Another good substitute for the black rub material for the front window guides that I have used often is black velcro ( the loop side that is thicker) 2 " works good.

Mike

The material looks very similar to "ballistic nylon fabric". Tough, but slick.
We use it extensively in Submarine repair work at the Public Naval Shipyards.

I really like the Velcro (Loop)  idea

Hello all. I need some advice on replacing my entire exhaust on my 67. I live in Canada. I am not sure if I should just go to a muffler shop or if I should order a package and do it myself. I will be going to the Portland swap meet in April. Should I just buy a set there and bring it back to Canada?
If you choose this route Call Jeff @ http://www.biscaysclassic.com/camaro.html#misc and see if he can help you by ordering it taking delivery and meeting you At Portland then you p/u for the ride north.

That is a good question. I am wondering, out loud, does "JUST DASHES" also reskin headrests in spite of the company name?
I have seen some DYI attempts at car shows that look funny, like Hannibal Lector got into interior restoration work (sorry about that).

3906181 CLIP

Question: Was this the # used for all three years?
I found one also that seems like it is unpainted black phosphate coated probably a throw away item as the cars were serviced  & modified over the years.

was there a BB version also?

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: '68 lower control arm won't fit in subframe on: November 03, 2014, 10:29:19 PM
I had to use a Jack & a Block of Wood to get my driver side to "SLIDE" it into the subframe gap. It was a bear to align and used a bar to remove it and try again. I used PST replacement bushings and attributed the tight fit to the new bushings and lack of give of the urethane bushing material. I used the silicone grease supplied with the suspension kit as an aid to lube the install also. 1/8" (0.125") is tight but if I remember correctly the subframe is flanged and rounded (radius) and should have some Flex to it. It may be possible to Dremel grind down the inner sleeve a few thou' to give you some clearance. I have never had these just "FALL" out or into place.

Tough call If it was "ME" & I needed the cash, I would sell it & move on.
I am one of those 68 Guys and realize how important (The born with motor) is to the 68Z  -vs- a missing original lump. So as a hobbyist I would want to see it reunited (Cue the music) for the car to be "More" legit & enjoyable.
Otherwise just hold on to it, List it with the orphans and keep your feelers out and "orphan-list it" for a call in the future.
Some owners really care more about some repop emblems on a clone than the chance at acquiring a integral piece of automotive history.
Best of luck to you.
