Restoration / Re: 68 purple wire w/yellow stripe under dash

It MIGHT be and I do mean MIGHT be the neutral safety switch.  I can not find my color coded diagram right now, but can you post a pic of the wire?

You have changed it twice already. I would say keep what you have in there for a few MONTHS and then maybe change again.

Changing to standard clutch adjustment may help a bit too. What clutch are you running?

UPDATE... Put the car on the lift and sucked out the synthetic trans fluid. Put in Sta-Lube/CRC 85/90 Multi-Purpose API/GL4 Gear Oil. Took the car for a 5 mile ride. Put the car back up and drained that out and filled again. Took a 10 mile ride down Hwy 101. Came back and sucked that oil out and filled with PennGrade 80/90 API GL4 Classic, Multi-Purpose Gear Oil. Shifts MUCH better and hoping it will get better with a little mileage and time. I will change it out again in 2 or 3 months. Still takes a little effort to get in to first gear at a stop. But not NEAR as much as before. I have become sort of an expert. Danny 

Seriously, you donít need the expensive gear oil. In fact, the cheap stuff I mentioned is actually what I have found to work BEST.

You might have read too much into that. From reading that, I didnít assume John was involved.

You can go to this link and scroll down for a list of plants for full size Chevy.

I believe St. Louis was also building full size in 1969. Impala SS could get a Muncie.  So S is not a guarantee itís from a Corvette. You would need to look at the partial VIN too.

Thanks Warren.

Hey Chris, there is information out there.

Generally years and years of experience canít just be given out in one fell swoop - so other people have instant knowledge.

Ask specific questions and you will probably get answers.  This is a great site with a lot of helpful people. Nobody knows everything, so each of us ask and answer questions. Has to be both ways.

So you traded that part I was interested in?

Original Cars and Details / Re: Family survivor 69 Camaro

I have seen that type of nut used on engine mounts before - but can NOT say for sure if it was on a 69 Camaro.

For what it is worth, reproduction parts sold by this company use the same type.

Use a pump to get the oil out. Put the hose in as much toward the bottom of the trans as you can. Pump it out. Wait a while until it drains a bit more, then pump it out again.

Honestly I think that will be enough. Then refill with regular gear oil.

Sorry to hear of your memory issues. It gradually happens to all of us as we get older.

General Discussion / Re: XXB suffix code
« on: May 28, 2018, 07:33:19 AM »
My suspicion is that if the engine in a 1967 Camaro SS 350 had a warranty issue prior to September 1967, it received an unstamped large journal short block. Remember in the 1967 model year, the 350 was only available in the Camaro.

My suspicion is that it was not used for the 350.

In 1967, the 327 and 350 had different part numbers - both for short block engine assemblies and ďfitted blocksĒ.  A fitted block in generally a short block - minus the rods and crankshaft.

The CE coding did not start until September of 1967. Prior to that, only complete engine assemblies revived a stamped code on the pad. Short blocks prior to September 1967 had blank pads.

Now you have me curious and probably wonít sleep much until I find an answer.  :)
