One more question here. Does anyone have the GM part number for the 1969 "250" emblem or can anyone tell me how it differs from the 68 emblem. The two look alike to me.

Mike.

Joe:

Thanks for the pic. I am tempted to have the six rebuilt and put it in the car....so may decisions. I haven't looked at the six cylinder engine in a while but I do believe that it has the threaded holes for smog equipment in the manifold and they are plugged with bolts. The smog pump and plumbing is long gone. If you'd like a photo of the manifold I'd be glad to get that for you.

Thanks and yes that helps a lot. I started this day thinking that the 1967 badge with the vertical color bars was correct for my car. While I still haven't been able to find the right emblem you guys have set me straight on what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

Thanks for the numbers.  I'll have to do some research and see what I can come up with. I'm hoping that the 250 emblems have the same screw hole pattern as the 327 emblems and are interchangeable.

Mike.

In 1969 there was just the numbers "250" up front in the stripe where you say and I can find that emblem in any of the catalogs online. Why is it that I can't find any reference of that on the 68? Is the emblem the same as the 1969 "2 5 0" emblem? What is your source?

Thanks, Mike.

Can anyone tell me what if any fender emblem was used on the front fenders of a 68 Camaro with a 250 six in it? My car is being prepped for paint and has a 327 engine in it right now. I have the original number matching six on an engine stand and I need to decide which emblems to drill the fender for. I would like to install the 327 emblems but wish that I could switch to the six cylinder emblem later if I want to go back to the original engine.

I have seen the 67 emblem with vertical color bars and the "250" number that goes on the flank of the fender and I have seen the 1969 250 number that goes on the front of the fender in the bumble-bee stripe but I can't find any reference to a 250 emblem on a 1968 car.

Any help?

Thanks, Mike.

I haven't been active here for quite a while but I've been a member for many years. I've had my 68 convertible since 1988 and am in the process of freshening it up again so I stopped in. I'm glad to see that the forum is still very active.

Can anyone explain to me the logic behind the cam break-in? What does that initial run time do for the cam? Does it assume that you installed new cam bushings?

Joe:

You ask hard questions:) When I replaced my glass I prepped the metal with epoxy primer the same as the rest of the bare metal surfaces and used the seal material that the glass company gave me and it seems fine. It didn't even occur to me that I would have trouble with the moldings, I guess that I got lucky.

I received the tank from mustangs unlimited yesterday and it looks very nice. I can't tell it from the original except that it is nice and shiny and the gas stays in it:)

116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: body bushing on: March 24, 2007, 08:00:42 AM
When I replaced my front bushings I put large metal washers the diameter of the frame ta b between the frame and bushing on a friends advice because it's a common place for the frame tabs to rust and cause the body to sag. I welded them in place because mine had already begun to rust but I don't think that it necessarily needs to be welded.

In case anyone else is looking for a tank, I found a bargain at mustangs unlimited. Canadian gm32a tank with filler neck included for $95. These guys are local to me and I may even be able to pick it up and avoid shipping costs.

Mike.

Thanks for all of the replies. I'm sold on the Canadian tank.

I go back a number of years on CRG, maybe five or more but haven't posted in  a while.

I haven't logged in here since it was the old style forum mostly because I've been sidetracked by building my old Harley but I'm turning my attention back to the 68 convertible this spring and I have a question. Can anyone here recommend a good quality repro fuel tank for my 68? Year one claims to have OEM tanks but they're a little pricey for me. I also saw a complete kit with straps, filler neck, anti squeek pads at Classic Industries for what looks like a fair price.  Any help on the parts or tips on the installation would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Mike.
