16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heads up on bellhousing alignment on: June 16, 2010, 03:30:40 PM
Sorry to hear about your vibration problem, I just had my tranny rebuilt with new WR M22 gears and before I install it with a new clutch, p.p. and t.o. bearing, I am going to check the bellhousing alignment.

I've just ordered the Browell tool and not sure which dowels to go with if I find the bellhousing alignment is out of tolerance. I was reading the Moroso and Lakewood websites and, contrary to what Jerry wrote in the CRG report about "Once you have correct alignment, apply either red or green Loctite to the dowel pins...",

Moroso doesn't mention using loctite but rather says to drill the block for set screws:
http://www.moroso.com/catalog/categorydisplay.asp?CatCode=23004&pt=37938

Lakewood's instructions don't mention Loctite either when using the EZ Adjustable dowel pins and say to "turn setscrew to tighten (which runs down the center of the pin) and positively locks the dowel in position".:

With the engine in the car, seems the Lakewood EZ Adjustables are the simpler install and probably prudent to use Loctite.
thanks, Mel

Just picked up this set:

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RAM-92760/

price is very reasonable and is an upgrade from a stock set.
emailed RAM tech support with questions, here is the email I sent:

"Hello,
I wanted information on clutch kit 92760 sold by Summit Racing and
advertised as part of your "Musclecar Series" clutch line.
Why is this kit not shown in your catalogs on your website, is it a
discontinued set?
What is the clamping force in pounds for the pressure plate?
What is the clutch surface material made of?
What is the horsepower rating for this clutch set?

I intend to install this in a 69 Camaro Z28 with a 302 cubic inch SBC
producing 350-375HP, Muncie M20 and 3.73:1 rear gears. Car is driven only
on the street, not daily, with the occasional enthusiastic hard run.
Flywheel is 153 tooth and trans is 1.125" 10 spline input shaft.

Thank you for any information you can provide.
Mel"

This is the reply:

"Mel,

We do this kit specifically for Summit racing, thats why it's not on our
site.  The pressure plate is 3,000lb static, disc material is organic and it
will hold slightly over stock horsepower.  Either this kit or our 88760HDX
kit will work fine the difference is the HDX kit has a steel backed clutch
disc.

RAM Clutches"

I'm planning on installing it soon, possibly over this weekend, I will post my impressions, car currently has a RAM replacement clutch set installed about 10 years ago.

here what i found on the hays street & strip hd set up:

http://www.summitracing.com/search/?keyword=85-103&dds=1

a bit cheaper than what Jerry said.

I realize this is an older thread and you've probably resolved your issue but,
after resurfacing the flywheel it is possible the the heads of the flywheel to crank bolts interfere with the clutch hub and vibrations are felt through the driveline until you press the clutch pedal, which of coarse increases the clearance.
If thats the case, you may consider removing the lock washers and using locking straps which will increase the clearance between the bolt heads and the clutch hub. I personally would replace the flywheel.

Jerry,
old thread, are you still using this hays clutch set-up? can you post part numbers?
thanks,
Mel

19L566287 was never built, last 69 Camaro built in L.A. ended around 531163 or so...

Glad to hear you got them all out, nice job!!
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: rear spring replacement on: December 23, 2009, 09:06:45 AM
If you unbolt the spring from the front bracket you will have more room to work.

you can't get the nut and bolt that goes thru the front spring eye out without dropping the bracket first.

24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: rear spring replacement on: December 22, 2009, 09:31:28 PM
Thats a tough one. You need to get inside the area where the nut is, basically each 3/8" bolt goes thru a j-nut. the original ones actually have a nut welded to the j-nut clip, the aftermarket repros are a one piece stamped j-nut with no separate nut.
You may have a couple where the nut has separated from the body of the j-nut clip, you may be able to keep those from turning with the tip of a flat head screwdriver thru the slot where the j-nut is installed.
For the stripped ones, sticking a wedge between the bracket and the floorboard may allow you to back each bolt out.
If all else fails you may be able to cut the bolt heads off with a cut-off wheel or grinding the bolt heads down, or even drilling the bolt heads off.
I'm pretty sure they're 3/8" diameter bolts.
Good luck.

You need one of these to help u tune that Holley. Invaluable toolbox reference:

You can also call Holley tech service and they can make suggestions for squirters, cam, jets, and powervalve based on your particulars. First check your vacuum at idle before calling:

Heres a link for a home made filter. I had to make one when I switched to HEI, works great, best $2.00 you'll ever spend.

Actually it seems the Thorley 376 won't fit. Both Companies put out a 375 which should work in a '69 Z, tri-y's won't work with a powerglide.

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 302 with close ratio steering box, finding right headers? on: December 04, 2009, 02:38:25 PM
The steering box has nothing to do with fitment of headers currently on the market.  I also have hooker super comps on my '69 with a 302. I previously ('80's) owned a '67 with a sbc and ran hedmans also no issues. I have read the tri-y is a better design for the sbc. If I were to buy a new set it would probably be Dougs or Thorleys tri-y's. Use to be Doug Thorley 'til doug and his wife divorced and split the company.  The Thorley seems to be thicker 14ga vs 16ga.
