121  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 bumper jack on: April 17, 2008, 11:27:17 AM
Here are some pictures of the bumper jack from my 68 Coupe, 04A Norwood built. I found no markings on the base or mast, which is triangular. The jacking instruction label was printed on 1-10-67. I am the second owner and have owned this car for 20 years so I am positive of the authenticity of the jack. Hope this might help.

About 1500 miles during spring, summer and fall, three to four times per week. My 230 cubic inch six gets 25 mpg on the highway so I'm not worried about gas prices.
123  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Saginaw Manual Trans Front Bearing Shield on: January 21, 2008, 07:34:40 PM
The factory original GM front bearing in my Saginaw 3 speed trans came with a metal shield facing the inside of the transmission. About 10 years ago the bearing was replaced with one without the shield, apparently will no ill effect. Any opinions or comments about the absence or presence of the shield? Thanks, Joe.

Yes, the three keys are sitting properly and the two key springs are not hooked into the same key as noted in the shop manual.
125  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Gearshift Knob Part Number on: November 26, 2007, 09:30:06 PM
I'm very sure it is the original knob. I bought the car 20 years ago from the original owner. The car is a survivor with original everything and was built in April 68, eliminating the possiblity that the knob was a 67 leftover. I just bought a NOS 3973042 knob, which is black, in case I can't find the correct NOS blue knob. It looks like 3899062 is what I should be looking for. Thanks for all your input.
126  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Gearshift Knob Part Number on: November 24, 2007, 03:33:17 PM
I'm not sure about the "dark blue and chrome". It is a medium blue and there is no chrome. I'm attaching a picture to better describe it. If anyone has a NOS one, let me know.
127  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Gearshift Knob Part Number on: November 23, 2007, 08:26:32 AM
Does anyone know the part number for a 1968 3 speed column shift knob? The colour is blue, goes with the 717 blue interior. Many thanks.
128  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 3 Speed Trans Rebuild on: November 18, 2007, 08:12:05 AM
I have a question regarding the synchronizers on my 3 speed trans but this question can apply to 4 speeds also. I'm rebuilding my trans using all NOS GM synchronizers, gears and blocking rings, all in perfect condition. The 1st and reverse synchronizer slides very nicely but the 2nd and 3rd less smoothly. The GM shop manual says that the synchronizer assembly (hub and slider) is a matched set and must be kept together. No problem, I haven't mixed them up. My question is, is the circular location of the slider on the hub matched also? If so, then there's probably a mismatch there as I've removed the slider from the hub without marking the relationship. Is it just a question of trying out the slider on each of the 30 different splines on the hub to find the smoothest combination. Or are there other ways to ensure a smooth sliding action. All comments and suggestions are appreciated. Sorry about the long-winded question, but I want to get this right the first time. Thanks for any help provided.
129  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Noisy Valve Lifters or Valves Needing Adjustment? on: August 22, 2007, 11:46:20 AM
How can I differentiate noisy valve lifters from valves needing adjustment. The engine in question is a stock 230 cubic inch six cylinder which runs perfectly. Thank you, Joe.
130  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 Speaker Delete Cardboard on: August 03, 2007, 04:02:17 PM
Yes. I'm the second owner and have owned the car for 19 years. It's an original radio delete car which has never been molested.
131  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1968 Speaker Delete Cardboard on: August 03, 2007, 07:44:41 AM
A while back there was a discussion of this subject. While removing my heater control panel to repair a broken defroster lever, I had easy access to the speaker delete cardboard so I removed it to photograph it, as it is a rare piece. Of course I put it back. Joe.
132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 Inner Heater Box on: July 29, 2007, 08:02:43 AM
Thanks for all your input. I went the WD40 route on all cable ends, applying several applications and working it in by pulling and pushing on the cable. All three controls work fine now.
133  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 Inner Heater Box on: July 25, 2007, 06:45:10 AM
Thanks for your input. I have now discovered that the drag is in the cable and not the lever or door. Is the AIR cable removeable at the door end without removing the inner heater distribution duct? What is the best lubricant for the cable, grease, graphite?
134  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 68 Inner Heater Box on: July 24, 2007, 10:12:48 AM
Can anyone tell me where the cable, that originates with the top lever (Air-Fan) on the non a/c heater control panel, ends up. All three levers control doors within the inner heater box, I have figured out which doors the bottom two levers control, but not the top lever as it's cable disappears behind the heater box. Furthermore, my shop manual says that sliding the top lever from the left to the centre opens the Air door and sliding it further to the right operates the 3 speed fan. When I slide the lever from the centre to the right, there is extreme drag on the lever and I'm afraid something is going to break. My understanding is that the travel from the centre to the right side is for operating the fan only. Is this correct? I have removed the cable from the lever so I know the binding does not originate in the heater control panel. I'd appreciate any light anyone could shed on this problem as well as directing me to any exploded diagrams of the inner heater box. Thanks in advance. Joe.
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Chassis Lubrication on: May 24, 2007, 06:22:17 AM
This may sound like an elementary question, but what is the correct interval to lubricate the chassis? I put about 1500 miles per summer and store the car from December to April. I doubt that the factory recommended 4 months or 6000 miles applies. Thanks for your help.
