1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Stuck piston in NOS wheel cylinder on: February 21, 2015, 05:15:51 PM
I used the vice to push the piston inward and air pressure to push it outward and got it moving. Thanks for the suggestions. Joe.
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Stuck piston in NOS wheel cylinder on: February 20, 2015, 05:52:56 PM
I have a NOS front wheel cylinder with one of the pistons stuck. Any ideas how I can unstick it without taking the cylinder apart or causing any damage? Thanks.

Some rebuilders use stainless steel sleeves, others use brass. What are the pros and cons of each or is there no difference?

Resleeving only for my 1968 dual reservoir 1" bore master cylinder was quoted at $115. They use a stainless steel sleeve. And thanks for all the input.

Has anyone had any experience, good or bad, with Brake & Equipment Warehouse in Minneapolis, regarding master cylinder resleeving? Quality? Workmanship? reliability? I will have mine done soon and would appreciate any comments. Thanks, Joe

The GM part number for a '68 L6 with manual transmission is 3927770, with automatic transmission is 3927772. Currently on ebay there are one of each GM NOS. The rod shouldn't be hard to find, and the clip is a standard item.

 I just removed the entire scuff with everyday chrome polish, something I should have tried before posting my question. Thanks for the replies.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Reveal Moulding Scuff Mark on: July 08, 2014, 07:44:59 AM
My windshield lower reveal moulding has a noticable scuff mark. Is it possible to polish it out? The moulding is the GM original on my 1968 coupe. Were the originals made of stainless steel and polished or chromed? Thanks, Joe.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Research help needed, 68 front drum style, finned vs unfinned on: March 31, 2014, 11:50:35 AM
Can anyone explain the differences in the brake shoe sets used with the finned drum as opposed to the non-finned drum? GM specifies a different part number. Thanks, Joe.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 1968 Front Drum Brakes on: March 25, 2014, 03:24:28 PM
GM specifies a different part number for front brake shoes used with finned drums as opposed to those used with non-finned drums. Can anyone explain the differences in the shoes? Thanks, Joe.
11  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: L6 starters on: March 19, 2014, 04:38:22 PM
The starter number on my L6 1968 Sport Coupe is 1108365. The assembly date of the starter is 8C29, the build date of the car is 04A.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Replacement parts - Country of Origin on: February 26, 2014, 02:42:12 PM
I've been told by a couple of parts men that some aftermarket parts that come in boxes with a label stating "Made in U.S.A." are not necessarily made in the U.S.A. Does anyone have any evidence of this being the case? Once upon a time parts that could be stamped were stamped with the county of origin. Now a lot of parts are not stamped so we have to rely on the country of origin stated on the box to be correct. Any experiences, opinions? Thanks, Joe.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Brake Shoe "throat" size on: December 16, 2013, 11:06:22 AM
I believe that the "throat" is the circular hole that is formed when the tops of both brake shoes are held together. Each shoe's half hole fits around the spring anchor pin bolt. Is this correct? Also, I've seen aftermarket brake shoe type 246 showing throat sizes of 1" and 1 1/4", so I'm wondering which is correct. Thanks, Joe.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Brake Shoe "throat" size on: December 14, 2013, 05:09:13 PM
Exactly what is the brake shoe "throat", and what size is it on my 1968 with manual drum brakes all around? Do the front and rear brakes have the same throat size? I've seen replacement brake shoes showing both 1" and 1 1/4" throat sizes. Thanks, Joe.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Master Cylinder Secondary Piston on: October 21, 2013, 08:52:42 AM
Your suggestion is a good one except that in my case I also require both sets of check valves as my car has a drum/drum braking system.
My research shows that GM supplies the primary piston only in the kit and the secondary piston only separately under part number 5452694.
