I have an MSD in my 68 with a tic-toc-tach. The MSD has a Tach ouput terminal.
I just hooked up to that and it seems to run fine.

What about if your car is gloss black?
Is it still "blacked out"?

Hi guys.
There is one down here in New Zealand still with its original 6 in it.
I will try to track it down and get more info.

I pulled my dash apart 3 times (arrrg) after fitting a shift light only to find the same thing.
I tell everyone to run a flying earth strap wire now just in case this comes loose.
Good work and an easy fix

Hi there, I had the same problem a while back.
Your fuel guage sender is faulty
When your sender drops to a certain level it becomes open circuit either because the wiper of the sender loses contact with the resistor or the resistor is rusty.
The best way to fix it in my opinion is to replace the sender.
From memory, the resistance of the sender circuit when the tank is full should be around 90 ohms and near to 0 ohms when empty, or the other way around , can never remember.
In any event if the resistance is any more than 90 ohms you have an open in the circuit somewhere, my guess is the sender.

Hope that helps

Hi Kurt,
My mistake, it is just an RS, not an RS/SS. Has all RS trim and badge features.
I believe it is a 210Hp 327 so yes there.
The tag appears to be original, not re-rivetted or anything.
I noticed there was no build date aslo, an oversight perhaps?
The build date of the engine seems to be close to the build date using the VIN build sequences suggesting it is all as it should be.
The partial VIN by the heater motor and on the front cowl panel all match.
The guy who has it is really passionalte about camaro's especially '68's.
He is a panel and paint fella who is as fussy as fussy gets.
It would be nice to confirm its originality for him.

Does the VIN show up in the database?

Thanks

Here are a few pics of teh cowl tag, engine pad and speedo.

Hi guys, I hope the new year has been kind to you all.

Seeing as we are talking about odd cowl tags I thought I might add this one into the mix. (sorry for hijacking the thread)
A friend of mine here in NZ has  68 RSSS matching #s coupe that he imported from Japan with a strange tag,
There is none of the usual info on the tag.
what it does have however is the following stamped on the bottom part :

"This car finished with magic mirror acrylic lacquer."

The car is painted in Sea frost green (code P2)
 I will go and get a pic tomorrow and post it here.

It has electric windows, fold down rear seat, air con, U17 guage package with tic-toc-tach,

All partial vins match on the body and block etc.

Also interesting is that it has a speedometer that is marked up to 200 (Kph I assume)
The tacho yellow line is at 4700 to 5000 and then redline is 5000 to 7000RPM ( will look for identifying numbers or part numbers )
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Did 1968 cars with AC get Astro Ventilation door glass? on: June 10, 2009, 02:37:40 AM
My 04D car has had aftermarket side glass fitted at some atage ( Temperlite ). All the numbers are the same on all side windows and read from the outside.
The rear window is  factory fitted, dated LX-10. March 68 and is M75 tinted, Softray.
The front window is a Guardian, which I assume is aftermarket, Safety float, Shaded. Laminated,DOT22, with the A-S1 halfway up the pillar. All read from the outside.
Can anyone shed any light on this front screen?
I hope that helps, maybe not. But it explains why my car does not have the Astro ventr labels on the door glass.

Good question.
My friend here in NZ has a 68 ragtop with AC and Astro Ventilation on the door glass.
It all looks original too.

Thankyou very much for your close observations rat pack, JohnZ.
I have been for a very close look (now that I knnow what I am looking at) and can now see where the panel work has been done.
I will grab that system from my mates car and store till I pull the engine out.
Thanks a lot for your help.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 Aircon car? on: June 06, 2009, 10:26:57 PM
Hi guys, thanks for your input.
The car is in restored condition.
It was restored by the guy I bought it from and he tells me that it had no air con when it arrived in the country.
In other words, he did not remove it if it was ever there at all.
I have found that there is no ducting behind the ball vents which might explain the controls not working.
However, there are still no penetrations for the ball vent ducting into the firewall to connect to.
There is no evidence of a hole for the ball vent valve lever to poke through.
I cannot see where the cutout area for the plenum has been filled in although my panelbeater syas he can see it. (x-ray vision maybe)
All the glass is definately tinted green.
Rat pack,
Thanks for your input regarding the aftermarket aircon systems.
I would prefer to fit the factory system although it would appear I am in for a lot of body work to do so.
Hopefully some of you experts wall spot some tell tale clues in the pics Ihave uploaded.

Thanks again
Wayne
