16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Best source for lower ball joint? on: September 26, 2012, 01:18:19 PM
When I rebuilt my front end many years ago, I used TRW ball joints. There were made in the U.S. and I didn't encounter any difficulties installing them. They have performed well so I would buy them again. I don't remember comparing appearances between the original and the TRWs so I can't comment on that. Hope this helps. Joe.

I made an adaptor by turning a metal rod to a squeeze fit in a brake line fitting then drilled and tapped it to accept a standard zirk grease fitting. After blocking off the three holes at the bottom of the reservoir with a piece of hard rubber and a C-clamp, I pumped in grease with my standard pistol-grip grease gun and out it came.
Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks, I will try that.

Yes, I did remove the stop screw.

Any suggestions on how to free a piston in my master cylinder. It is the piston at the bottom of the bore. I've soaked it with WD40, blasted it with compressed air, tried hooking it with a piece of wire, all to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Joe.

Sounds like we've determined that the retainer/clip on the car is the correct one. Now if I could only find the part number or a supplier. Thanks for all your input. Joe.

Thank you for your suggestion. Upon closer scrutiny of my AIM (page 156), I see that there is a tab, on the temperature switch wire, which is screwed into the intake manifold. The tab does not carry a part number so I'm guessing it was molded into the wire. All this leads me to suspect that the plastic tab currently on my car is a production line anomaly or was installed while repairs were being done by the previous owner.

Can any one tell me the GM part number for the temperature sending switch plastic wire retainer, as pictured, for a 1968 6 cylinder engine? I checked my AIM but couldn't find it. Thanks, Joe.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: NOS Fuel Pump on: January 20, 2012, 10:22:33 AM
230 L6, but I imagine any problems would be common to all engines.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Rear Spring Front Bushing on: January 20, 2012, 08:35:12 AM
Has anyone used either the Moog SB298 or ACDelco 45G15308 rear spring front bushings? How do they compare to original GM quality-wise? Are they made in the U.S. or Canada or off-shore? Thanks, Joe.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / NOS Fuel Pump on: January 20, 2012, 08:26:02 AM
Is there any risk in installing and running a 25-30 year old NOS fuel pump? I'm thinking about the internal parts such as the diaphragm hardening and cracking. Anything else to consider? Thanks, Joe.

I have a 68 coupe, L6 with 3 speed column shift also. I 've never seen another one so I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures. Joe.
28  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: 1968 Distributor Cam Luricator Part Number on: January 13, 2012, 08:35:16 AM
Thanks Steve and Ed. I will follow up your leads. Joe.
29  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / 1968 Distributor Cam Luricator Part Number on: December 10, 2011, 02:58:29 PM
Does any one have the part number for the 1968 L6 distributor cam lubricator. The GM parts book shows 1852935 for both L6s and V8s which can't be right since the L6 lubricator is donut shaped while the V8 wick is straight. Any help would be appreciated. Joe.
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Smog Pump Part Number on: March 15, 2011, 07:28:40 AM
Thank you for your insights. I did some further research that confirms that only one pump was used as a service pump for all 68's (except Corvair) regardless of whether the production pump being replaced had a pressure relief valve or not. This information comes from my 1968 Chevrolet Emissions Control Systems brochure. It appears that the service pump part number was initially 7803947 then changed to 7806686, as Ed stated.
