2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Steering column problem on: April 19, 2010, 11:40:53 PM
After winters restoration having lots of job done on the car I realized now from driving the car that the steering is very unpleasent. It feels like it binds in at least 2-3 positions when turning the steering wheel. I checked on the problem by release the two bolts connecting the rag-joint and the it felt much better. I tried to tighten the bolts again in a slighter different position but the problem occurs again.

It can be said that I replaced my body bushings this winter with new ones in polyurethane which may caused this problem. But, if I remember well I felt this (not so much) also earlier. I read that the steering column can be re-aligned to solve the problem. How is this done??

The car is a 1967 camaro conv. with power steering.

Thanks /Emanuel

Thanks guys. I will check this during the winter.
Are the any control dimensions other than the diagonal measurements to check?

4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Body adjustment needed?? on: August 24, 2009, 01:19:33 PM
Hi all.
I have a 1967 convertible.
I did a front wheel alignment and everything worked out fine except one thing. They could not align the front with the rear exactly. There was a small error but we decide there was nothing to do about it and let it go.

Well, now a couple months later I got the idea to make a small measure between the wheel side and the fender and found out that the distance was bigger on the passanger side, see image.

I need advice how to correct it. Can the body mount bushings make this error or is there a play to adjust the body related to the front subframe? When I check the gaps between hood, front and fenders it all looks OK.

(Image is not showing my car - only illustrative)

Greatful for any idea.
Thanks /Emanuel

I may need to correct this. The play when I rotate the handle is OK in the rotating direction, but if I push the handle to front/rear and up/down it feels very sloopy.
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Door window handle play on: May 05, 2009, 01:21:15 PM
I did a search on the subject without success. I will make a trip to US in a couple of weeks and like to take the opportunity to buy the parts I need to correct this problem. The handle play on both doors is excessive and I think this is a common problem on the 1967 camaros? Any advice what's wrong and where I can buy needed parts is appriciated.

Thanks /Emanuel

I'm having problems making a good description of this (language thing  Grin) but I'll try.
I hope you can see it's the passenger side door on the image. The edge along the cover inside the windshield frame does not mate anything but ends up with a gap. You can see this as the light (yellow) color. Also the profile coming up from the sidekick-panel ends in nothing. It looks like the edge shall be covered by something else.

I checked classics complete catalog without finding parts close to this other than the sidekick panels.

Hi. I noticed this looks like there's something missing.

What is correct? It's a 1967 convertible.

Thanks /Emanuel
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Exhaust routing on a 67 convertible on: January 20, 2009, 01:33:38 AM
Hi guys
I have a small block with headders and try to figure out how to route my new exhaust (universal parts) in a proper way. I dont stribe for originality.
There is a lot of aftermarket systems to buy but normally they say "not for convertible". I want a 2.5" system. The output of
the headders is in line with the mid floor reinforcement and I have to angle the tube down to avoid a collision and then it goes up
again before the rear axle. I wanted to place the tubes inside the floor X-brace but the clearance to the floor was not good enough.

The bottom line is that I shure should appriciate some images on exhaust on thoose cars to get some ideas how to proceed with my work. Huh Huh

Thanks /Emanuel
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: spindle length on: January 20, 2009, 01:22:17 AM
I bought a pair of 2" drop tall spindles to lower my car and they also told me it improve the front wheel geometry. This is correct because its similar to the Guldstrand midífication but in my case it was impossible to use this spindles because of interference with the steering control arm scratching the inside of the rim. Check this before buy

To answer your question there is tall ball ball joints to replace the ones on the upper control arms.
