I stand corrected.

Gary,
I would be interested in what you use and how they turned out.
I believe the vinegar is the key to the shine but keeping the shine is another question.

33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Black Paint on Chrome Parts on: October 12, 2014, 07:22:26 PM
Have several parts that have been re-chromed and was wondering how the black was applied on factory parts. Looking at the factory pieces there does not seem to be any primer used to promote adhesion but the factory black was perfect after +40 years. You can look in the corners where the paint is thin and there is no signs of chipping or lifting.
I have researched this topic and really do not like the idea of sanding with 600 grit and using etching primer especially on the 67 tail light housings. I spent allot of money to chrome the housings and not destroy the rough definition only to destroy it with primer and paint.
Anyone know how the factory paint was applied and what paint, Sims, Worth, Rustoleum 7777, (?) could be used to get the closest to original?
I am leaning towards a thin slow drying enamel with the possibility of heat to help drying. Something along the lines of the original body painting process.

If you take the lower header off, will all the bolts fit in their proper holes? Upper bolts (4) only.

Just checked the lower header to bumper fit and angles are very close. Actually the header touches on the end with a small gap in the center, just the opposite of what you have.
You may want to install the hood latch support just to make sure the lower header is in the correct position.
Looks like some big gouges on the right upper of your bumper, could explain the problem.

36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Deltronic Transistor-Controlled Magnetic Pulse amp. plate 3916730 on: September 13, 2014, 11:06:52 AM
KurtS,
Thanks for the reply and yes I have looked at the CRG report but did not answer my question.
I have since found an TI installation sheet #3916731 (11-4-66) that shows the early plate 3916730 but does not have part numbers. The early plate is a parallelogram, that is, a lopsided rectangle.
Jim Stubing (Heartbeat City) makes a repo of the 2nd design plate #3954206 that is rectangular in shape and is verified  on page 2 of COPO 3560 TI install sheets #3961574 with part #3954206.
I believe the positioning of the plates on the COPO sheets are drawn incorrectly.
Thanks to Bill Glowacki for copies of the installation sheets. Grin

Anyone know the difference between OTC amp. plate 3916730 and the plate 3954206 used with the ZL1's? I am talking about the plate that was mounded on the vertical grill support in front of the radiator.

38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 AIM on: September 04, 2014, 02:51:25 PM
John,
At this point I have no idea what color plug is on the stick. The 69 P&A is the only source for the part # 3896212 w/ a to full mark length of 17 25/32 and a to add length of 18 7/16 that I can find.
Maybe someone with a 67 and 68 P&A can verify my part # 3896212.
The 69 P&A shows 3923239 w/ 17 11/32 to full and 18 7/16 to add for all sb engines and 68 AIM verifies # and gray plug identification. Same dipstick tube and pan as 67 sb engines.
The 69 P&A shows 3951576 w/ 17 5/16 to full and 18 3/16 to add for all sb engines and 69 AIM verifies 3 and green plug identification. Same dipstick tube but new pan 3961399.
Believe 67 Vette used 3862730 w/23 13/64to full and 24 to add w/black plug.
Do not believe 67 used gray plug because of part number change for 68. 68 dipstick added a little more oil to pan.
Anyone else have an idea what style and color was used in 67 and why ?
Bob

Does anyone have 6 B1 and 6 B2 that is missing from the 67 AIM?
Trying to solve SB dipstick color and part # identification problem.
I think the # is 3896212.

Try this again

This is the first design factory installed clip and is held in place with a screw.

Good picture in 67 AIM K30 A3. Second design clip but installed the same. Also shows hole location for screw that holds the clip to the throttle lever.

Does anyone have a picture and dimensions of the screw in question? Because of the hole drilled in lever I would think it would be around 1/4-14 tapping screw but just guessing.
Bob
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Cruise Control Installation Instructions on: August 15, 2014, 12:23:35 PM
BC,
Your picture is of the first 67 design. There was a factory part revision in 4 6 67 that changed your 3904186 clip to 3919006 clip that is shown in John's picture and was carried over into 68.
Could you show a picture and dimensions of the screw  9418359 that holds the clip to the throttle lever? It is the same for 67 and 68.

John,
Glad to see you are still around.

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: TH400 Kickdown Harness Clip on: June 19, 2014, 08:33:01 PM
Bob,
No reproduction of the clip is being made.
Best bet would be to check the junk yards for big GM 67, 68 and 69 cars and trucks,  they all used T400 transmissions.
You could also run add on TC.
I saw no response so figured I would at least give you some ideas.
Bob

PS Does your BB 68 have AC ?
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 AC Muffler on: June 18, 2014, 10:22:13 PM
The 3923194 is the muffler for BB only as seen in the AIM C60 D3 in the upper picture that is misidentified as V-8 Engine, should be 396 Engine. The lower picture with incomplete identification L-6 Engine, should be All other Engines except 396.
A further identification in the AIM C60 D4 identifies hose routing for all engines except 396 but view A and B  of same page shows muffler and hose routing for BB
with clamp on right fenderwell, BB ONLY.
The clip 382770, screw 9419380, clamp 3925746 and caps ( 3738197 ) are what I was referring to about trying to get a picture of as I  vaguely remember them on my BB 68.
