16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 SS 350 300 HP car on: June 24, 2013, 04:08:33 PM
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.

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

22  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
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help with chrome tail pipes on: March 21, 2011, 07:36:41 PM
In 1971 I bought tailpipes for my 1969 SS that looked like the ones you have. They were chrome from the muffler back and were cut off straight, not angled. They were bought at a parts store and I'm pretty sure they were Walker. Don't have the pipes but still have the car. Jim

Hi Mike,
Give CRG member Jerry Macneish a call at Camaro High Performance (z28camaro.com). I think he will be able to help you.  Jim

According to Bill's wife he suffered a subdural hematoma which is a blood collecting on the brain. It was not a stroke.

Bill Jenkins is in the hospital recovering from surgery for blood on the brain. I don't know the details but he has been in there for some time. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
