436  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: First production date for 67 L35 and L78 on: December 17, 2008, 12:52:17 PM
Kurt,
Thanks for the info. I guess after searching 79 threads I must have missed it. Just did not ask the right question.
The 396 L35 started production in January (build date) of 67 according to what CRG has found to this date? Correct?
This information now makes me wonder about some of the info I used from the 67 AIM in 2 topics that I have in this forum.
Thanks again.
Bob
437  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / First production date for 67 L35 and L78 on: December 16, 2008, 01:56:54 AM

I am of the understanding that the release date for the 67 L35 & L78 was in Nov.66. If this is true Huh?? then when was the first L35 or L78 actually produced?

Thanks,
Bob

Did you take the air pump and alt. brackets off during your cosmetic restoration?
Check the alignment of the crank pulley and the water pump pulley.

439  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / verification of 67 BB Camaro starter solenoid wire harness retainer clip on: November 09, 2008, 08:49:41 PM
Trying to verify if solenoid retainer clip went into production.
Only seen one and it was on a 68 BB.
Please use 67 AIM 12 A9 #7 3906181 clip,68 AIM 12 A11 or 69 AIM 12 A7.
Thanks.

Use 67 AIM, add up RPO"s,  it will tell you the height and where to measure (providing you have the correct tires and wheels).

442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the correct coil for my COPO on: November 04, 2008, 12:10:26 PM
Try to use P&A's(69)that are as close to the year AIM's (69) as possible. This cuts down on GM part # substitution. Try to get verification from at least 2 references.
Both cars are (will be) drivers and will be shown. I have taken some latitude with some of the RPO"s ( 7 blade fans etc.), gets hot here in FL.

443  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: '67 center console on: November 04, 2008, 11:25:46 AM
I think the process of restoring the console with paint would be complicated. The chrome would have to be thoroughly sanded, etched,filled,primed,chromium paint and then cleared. If done correctly the results looks good but there is no substitute for chrome. The black is easy, thoroughly sand, etch, prime and spray black.
You could search EBay and swap meets for a console that is in better shape than yours but a really good console would cost more than 350.00.

Call Advance plating (or any of the really good chrome shops) and inquire if and how much ( hold onto your hat). This would only be done if you needed an original console or you have a fat wallet.

If you do not absolutely need an original and looks are important then the 350.00, even it is a little expensive, is the best alternative. You can try to sell your console at a swap meet or EBay and re-coupe some of your money.
This is my opinion, and what I will do with the 67 I am restoring.

JohnZ,
Would it be possible that a line worker used this to indicate something to another co-worker during a shift change (a start or finish of a particular procedure)?
The tire would have covered it up and none the wiser.
Just curious.

Just checked 1111169 and 1111170 and they do not have a GM logo. Checked some HEI dist. and one had a DELCO logo on it.

Jim,
The coil and bracket are an engine assembly, so the 69 AIM would be of little help.
In this case I used the Chevy By The Numbers and the GM 69 P&A (rev 10-1-69). The CBTN on page 242 shows the 1111499 dist. used on the 69 396 & 427. To verify this I used the 69 P&A 2.361 page 2-24.
The 69 P&A group 2.170 page 2- 4 shows 3 coils 1115202 (1.8 OHM resistance too high), 1115207 (TI coil), 1115238 (1.3 OHM correct resistance).The 293 number you mentioned is used by Rick"s but I think that is an GM assembly number for the coil and bracket. Look at 298 w/cowl induction and 270 wo/cowl induction in Rick's cat.,now go to the 69 P&A group 2.183 page 2-6. 1966876 w/cowl hood and 1971011 wo/cowl hood. The brackets are different not the coils.
Sorry it took so long to respond be am working on a 67 Camaro and 67 Corvette and they take up a lot of my time.

One procedure you can do is go to gaugeguys.com and click on test. This procedure takes out all the variables like tire dia.
Hope this helps!

448  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the correct coil for my COPO on: November 03, 2008, 02:51:14 PM
 Jim,

The distributor you should use is 1111499 with 1115355 vac. advance can and the coil should be 1115238 stamped 238 BR.
Make sure you use the correct dist. or timing curve will be incorrect!
Hope this helps?

449  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What is the correct coil for my COPO on: November 03, 2008, 08:50:21 AM
What engine and model 69 COPO are we talking about ?
What distributor do you have, point or TI ( alu. or cast iron ) ?

Please use 67 AIM 6 D1 for reference.
Note on 1-4-67 of the revision record that 3863501 support (metal), 9419400 screw,3710620 bushings were removed leaving 3924409 support (plastic),9419380 screw.
Please use 68 AIM 6 D1 for reference.
Note3924409 support (plastic),9419380 screw indicating that the plastic support was carried over from model year 67. The torque on 9419380 was increased form 20-30 in. lbs. to 30-40 in. lbs.
Any idea when this revision would have shown up in production?
Bob
