Vince, I have two factory '69 shifters with nomenclature similar to the one you have. The sticks are round with "Hurst" stamped on them and are held in by locking shims. There are no adjustment bolts for 3rd and 4th gear stops and no bushings where the linkage attaches only rubber bonded to the levers. Hope this helps. Jim

Gary, I have no idea what that "shield" fits. I have never seen one on a '69 Camaro although anything is possible. I have a factory solenoid heat shield on my '94 Blazer but it does not look like that. It may one of those, " Well it came off of a Camaro." deals.

18  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Holes in choke tower of Holleys? WHY? on: August 27, 2013, 06:43:22 PM
I ran a Holley 780 (3310) with this set-up back in '72-73. I believe I used a Mr. Gasket kit. It also required the use of two meshing gears that bolted to the throttle shafts on the passenger side. Basically when the throttle was pressed all four barrels opened at the same time along with four shots of gas. It ran pretty good after the engine was warmed up. When cold, not so much. Jim

Jethog737, the ground strap end should be under a valve cover hold down bolt. My car had the pulsating headlamps and the voltage regulator was the problem. Jim

Did you use a cam button or any other method to limit the can from "walking" in the block?

Michael
HA would indicate a 350 300HP MT engine. Also you should have two fuel lines. One fuel and the other is a return line. As a side note my POP has T0123HA for the engine. It also has a BM (3.31 open) coded rear axle and came with a Carter Qjet. It originally was equipped with the MC1 Muncie 3sp.

The '69 SS350 (option Z27) did have hydraulic lifters, Quadrajet carb, 10.25 compression, dual exhaust. Standard transmission was HD Muncie 3 speed. Power front disc brakes and 12 bolt rear were standard. I think some SS's were found to have 10 bolt rears with a Powerglide option. A special hood with louvres was also standard unless it was a Pacecar replica.

23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969, which pinion snubber on: March 18, 2013, 06:48:46 AM
It's a round conical snubber with a stud. Threads into a hole on a plate that mounts to the floor with two bolts.

Check accelerator pump clearance, .015-.020 @ wot. I prefer .015. I have found this to be an off idle problem a number of times. Check you vacuum also. You may need to change the power valve. Hope this helps. Jim

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '69 Camaro with 255/350 and cowl hood on: November 27, 2012, 06:10:58 PM
Hi Dan,                                                                                                                                  Welcome to the forum. I've followed drag racing for a number of years so I knew who you were. I remember the write up in National Dragster when you decided to give up the day job and turn pro. I knew that was your Dad's car and had wondered if it was a real "Z". For what its worth I think John Lingenfelter(RIP) had a 350/255 in his SS/NA '69 Camaro convertible in 1972. It had a cowl hood on it then. Don't know if that has any bearing on today's rules. Take care and good luck to you.

FWIW, a number of years ago (probably 10 or so) Camaro Corral published an issue that covered bolts and suppliers. I thought I still had the issue but it must have been unintentionally discarded. I believe it had illustrations along with supplier names. Jim
