271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: July 09, 2013, 06:06:29 PM
Mike, if you have not posted your information earlier, I would really appreciate it if you would.  This is what we are looking for.  If you already posted - Thanks!

If you have an original driveshaft and would be willing to post information about your car, it would be very much appreciated. Here is what to include...

Year of car
Norwood or Los Angeles car
Month and week of vehicle assembly
Engine
Transmission
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint)
Driveshaft casting number
Type of attachment to pinion yoke. There are two types: U bolts and the strap and bolts method.
Code stamped on front of passenger side axle tube.
Paint stripes and a picture (if possible)
Position of the u-joint flanges on each end. Some cars were "in-line" and others were "clocked" about 30 degrees off from each other

Carefully clean the area by the oil filter with some paint remover or lacquer thinner.  Do not use anything abrasive.  Then take some more pics at different angles.  I think I see a hint of some numbers. 
276  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Oil Pan Removal on: May 17, 2013, 05:23:24 PM
I have done oil pan removals both in and out of the car.  I don't think I will ever do another one in the car.  I know it is more work, but your chance of getting a good seal are better when the engine is on a stand.  Also this gives you a chance to check things over closely and address any other issues you may find.  But how you do it is up to you.  Good luck.

I read over all of the options.  Very, very interesting.  I also think it is cool that some of the cars were built with "Show Paint Required".  I wonder what was required for that?  Wet sand, buff and polish?
279  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Was the nose bolted together when the stripe applied? on: April 27, 2013, 08:52:51 PM
Which I believe is why some of the D90 stripes don't always line up perfectly.
280  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Muncie ID ? on: April 27, 2013, 02:29:29 PM
Gary, are there any marks stamped on the top side of this case?
281  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Control Arm Alignment Shims on: April 26, 2013, 05:05:16 PM
Although I can not guarantee these are originally from a Camaro, they are most likely from 60s or early 70s GM applications.  

I grabbed a handful from the parts bin of used shims.  Had 6 in my hand and 5 were unique.  Pic attached.

I have been looking at the issue with the small c after the assembly date for several years.  It appears that it may be an inspection mark.  I have a few cases with that small squared off c and some without.  Seems like it is more common in late 68 model year assemblies.

that is why when i ordered the car i specified EO to the dealer because i was familiar with 65 impalas that color.

you order by the color code number not the color name

So did you order it by the color name or by the paint sample and code in the book?  Paint samples in books do not always look EXACTLY like
they do on a car.  I am not trying to argue, just trying to get the story straight.
284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 396 valve cover ID on: April 21, 2013, 11:40:38 AM
If they are truly from a 1969 engine, they are most likely from a truck or the 396/265hp full size car application. 

I have a low horsepower 396 Impala 1969 engine in storage and I am pretty sure that is what the valve covers look like.
285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: my 69 Z being restored on: April 19, 2013, 10:46:03 AM
So is it at least POSSIBLE that you ordered what you THOUGHT was this Evening Orchid color, but it was really that Olds silver color?  Because the Olds color does have a VERY SLIGHT lavender hue to it.  And this was 44 years ago. 

I mean if you were just looking at a book and ordering a color, you might have mistaken one color for another - right?
