106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Corbin style wire heater hose clamps for my 1968 Camaro on: May 29, 2009, 03:42:33 PM
Sorry, I probably didn't make myself clear in my first post. I need to know the correct inside diameters of NEW Corbin style wire clamps to fit the 5/8" and 3/4" inside diameter heater hoses. Thanks, Joe.
107  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Corbin style wire heater hose clamps for my 1968 Camaro on: May 29, 2009, 08:34:20 AM
What is the correct inside diameter of the Corbin style wire clamps originally installed on first generation Camaro heater hoses?. There is one size for the 5/8" ID heater hose, and another for 3/4" ID heater hose. Also, were the clamps originally colour-coded? Thanks.

The "bleed vent" as TRW calls it is located at the base of the dust seal. I installed the dust seal with the bleed vent facing inward as per the instructions. See the attached picture.
Since I noticed the problem, I haven't tried to correct it in any way.
109  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Ball Joint Lubrication Problem on: April 24, 2009, 02:05:44 PM
I recently replaced all four ball joints on my 68 coupe with TRW products. Three of the ball joints accept the new grease while purging the old grease. However, one of the ball joints will not purge out the old grease. The rubber boot swells as I pump in new grease but no old grease comes out. Any ideas as to what is causing this problem and suggestions how I might correct this? Thanks for any help provided. Joe.

The right hand side depression on the inside of the glove compartment door has no decal on my 1968 Sport Coupe two owner survivor.
For those interested, here are a couple more shots of the speaker grille block-off cardboard and tape, used on radio-delete cars.

Thank you. Joe.

I put a Moog on my 68 about 4 years ago. Very happy with it.
113  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 1968 6 Cylinder Radiator Hoses Part Numbers on: April 20, 2009, 07:38:08 AM
I'm looking for the GM part numbers for both radiator hoses for my 1968 6 cylinder engine? No P/S, no A/C, no A.I.R. Also, does anyone know of a source (besides GM dealers) where I might find both? Thanks for your help. Joe.

John, thanks for the info and the link. There are 41 shops with the GSP-9700 in my area. I will have the tires and rims checked out as a first step. Joe.
115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Vibration - not the good kind on: September 01, 2008, 08:15:38 AM
My 68 6 cylinder 3 speed manual drives as smooth as silk up to 60 mph. Beyond that speed, there is a general vibration throughout the car, some of it felt at the steering wheel but not excessively. In order to cure this, I was thinking, for starters, of having the four wheels rebalanced, then the driveshaft. If those steps don't cure the problem, how should I proceed? Opinions and recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks, Joe.
116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Torque Drive Transmission on: August 02, 2008, 07:24:22 AM
I am curious about the Torque Drive transmission, option MB1, that was available in 68 and 69 with the 6 cylinder engines. My 68 shop manual doesn't include it but my 69 manual does, implying that the option was available part way through 68. Can anyone confirm this and give an approximate availablity date? Also, I assume that the shift lever was column mounted only, am I correct? Finally, does anyone have or had a Camaro with this option? If so, how did it perform? Thanks, Joe.
117  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Saginaw Trans ID on: July 28, 2008, 08:27:34 AM
I would appreciate help in decoding my spare Saginaw 3 speed trans. The ID number is 13W304899. It was assembled on the 30th of August 1973. Thanks for any help provided. Joe.
118  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Clutch Release Bearing Part Number on: July 09, 2008, 01:30:32 PM
Can anyone tell me the GM part number for the clutch release bearing for my 68 Camaro 6 cylinder 3 speed manual transmission? It is the longer one at 1 7/8". Thanks, Joe.
119  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Clutch Release Bearing Gouges on: July 04, 2008, 11:14:46 AM
Can anyone help me figure out what caused the two gouges pictured on my Federal Mogul 1697 clutch release bearing? The gouges are located at the two points where the release fork contacts the bearing collar. The bearing has been in my 68 Camaro 3 speed for 10 years and has 20,000 miles on it. I removed the bearing from the car to inspect it because I had the transmission out; the bearing didn't give any problems when driving the car. I still have the original GM bearing that has 95,000 miles on it which has no gouges whatsoever. A second question; when I press on the face of the bearing, the part that contacts the clutch fingers, and spin it, it turns smoothly and quietly. However, if I spin the face without applying pressure, it drags and is noisy. Is this normal? Thanks for any help that can be provided. Joe.
120  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 bumper jack on: April 19, 2008, 04:10:31 PM
Here's the jacking instruction label. Unfortunately, the part number is not readable. The car is a base coupe.
