31  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

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.

The '69 pipes exited the rear. Jim

42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Clutch won't disengage on: June 23, 2009, 09:05:42 PM
If you are using the factory clutch, 3892632 is the correct fork. If the Zoom is what I call a "high cone" style pressure plate you will have to use another fork. I am using a Hays diaphragm 11" clutch and am using the early Corvette fork p/n 3887177. This will allow floorboard clearance. This is in a '69 SS350 w/Muncie 4 sp. If you can see inside the bellhousing (through the clutch fork hole), make sure that the T/O bearing is not against the bearing retainer. I ran into a problem similar to yours 30yrs ago with a Schiefer unit. Hope this helps. Jim
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Clutch won't disengage on: June 23, 2009, 04:25:42 PM
I second what Stingr69 said. If you have the wrong T/O bearing arm it will not allow the clutch to work properly if at all. Also the disc may be backwards but I think it would have been hard to start or tighten the bolts. Either way you will probably have to disassemble and look at it. Good luck. Jim
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Dipstick tube 69Z on: March 16, 2009, 07:38:17 PM
I believe the tube you need is 7-1/4". This would correspond to the dimensions of the dipstick given on the ebay auction. I also measured  one I have and they are the same. Hope this helps. Jim
