Let's see some pics of what you have first.

I would lead you away from a 12 bolt from an A body car.  The Chevelles had the Chevy type 12 bolt but most of the Buick, Olds, Pontiac "sister" cars to the Chevelle like the GTO got the BOP 12 bolt - and that is not what you want.  They also had the "ears" on the top of the center section.  Not ideal for a 69 Camaro since these are not leaf spring cars.

The 8.5 inch 10 bolt Corporate rear from the 72-75 Novas (and I believe the V8 76-79 Novas) or the other "sister" cars to the Nova (Pontiac Ventura, Olds Omega, Buick Apollo) would be a good choice.  This is a direct bolt in, as mentioned earlier.  Just make sure it is the 8.5 and not the 7.5 rear.

This is interesting reading and for the most part pretty accurate.  http://www.chevyhiperformance.com/techarticles/48518_posi_10_bolt_upgrade_install/
But NO NOT use the ratchet type posi from a pickup - it will break.

But again - let's see what you have first. If you are not putting down a lot of power, an 8.2 rear may be fine for your needs.

In regards to a hone, I would look at it this way. 

1. See if you can borrow one from someone.  I don't have one right now, otherwise I would send one to you.

2. It is an investment, and something you need.  If you think you are only going to use it once, you should be able to sell it to someone for at least half of what you paid for it.  Otherwise, keep it for future use.

Good luck!

I started to take the top of the carb off, then changed my mind.  Did try to take a few pics of the inside though.

I will see about taking the top off the carb in the next few days and try to post some more pics.

Gary, give me a few days to check.  I may have an original 5773 rod.  If so, I will let you know.

One more.  Looks like it was donated in 1969.

A couple more pics.

I picked up this carburator the other day.  It is a 7028210 EE carb dated 3627 (362nd day of 1967) for 1968 396/325 hp automatic.

The carb was a GM donated carb for Education purposes, so it saw no use.  It has been slightly modified for teaching purposes and also I assume to disable it from just being taken and bolted onto a car for use.  Also has a sticker on it that says "DONATED BY GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES".

See these images and I will try to post more later.  They are good references for what an assembly line part looked like.

We don't need images like that on this site.

Thank You James.  That is the correct length as far as I know.  All 69s should be the same length. 

If you do some cleaning, I would not use anything abrasive. Try some WD40 first to see what that does.

Bump...

Anybody else have data to share?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Polishing glass on: February 26, 2014, 11:35:43 AM
Bill, we need to know how bad it is.  If you run your fingernail across that area, does it catch?  First thing to try is some GOOD glass cleaner and a newspaper.

Personally, if it is not bad, and it your case it sounds like it isn't, I would leave it alone if the above suggestion does not work.

If a dime won't fit between the intake valve and the exhaust valve, the valves are 2.02 intake and 1.60 exhaust. It's and old timers trick.   Wink
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: '68 D91 stripe vs 396 Emblems on: February 20, 2014, 06:18:25 PM
Unless you can guarantee those are original paint cars, I would not go by them.  And you have shown both the D90 and D91 stripes.  Your early 1968 model year car (I would not call it a late 1967 build, that is confusing) would have the D91, as you indicate.  I am not sure if the location is the same on both the D91 and D90.  Looking at the AIM, they appear to be different size.

Also see this link.  Images of stripes were taken from the GM Vehicle information kits so they should be "fairly" representative.

I will also check to see what is show in some other 68 literature.
