16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Picture of 69 z top of engine wanted on: April 12, 2014, 08:00:47 AM
Hey Bill I was trying to find out if all 69 camaros came with the metal line and clip, but my thread got hijacked, so I never got a clear answer. I have a 08C car but it did not have the clip. A bracket I notice that is missing from John Z pictures provided is the fuel line clip, I don't have a great picture of it but you can see most of it here:

John my Silver original paint car that is basically untouched had the fuel line clip in a box of parts that came with the car. It is a 05C car. The part was very old surface rust etc. I am pretty sure that part would had been with the car when new.

The added fuel line clip/bracket didn't start until around July/August 1969.

This is one heck of a resto. Someone spent a ton of money.

215/65-15 is exactly the same size as the original E70-15.
John aren't you running 22560R15's?

Perfect thanks John

Thanks Guys.
I am running P21570R15 on all four corners now and the car looks a little too tall. I have had these tires since like 1993 so I need to get rid of them. My Silver car has 23560R15s on all four corners I love the look, but I do get an occasional rub on the left front when I turn just right. I too like the rake the 255's will give. The car has new Moog springs up front and I re-arched the rear springs five years ago. So it does sit a little higher than the Silver car. The idea of the 65's may be a good one. I have had the car looking all stock since 2005 when I got it so a little day two won't hurt anything. Just need to figure out the front size.

Thanks,

Lawrence

Anyone running 22560R15 in the front and 25560R15 out back? I need new tires on my Gold car and was thinking about mixing it up a bit. This would give me a tire out back that would be .7 inches higher than the front. That seems like alot?
Discount Tire says on their site that P20570R15 are the stock size, but I thought JohnZ said 22560R15 were the closest to stock? Anyone know?

Anyone have a requested setup?

Thanks,

Lawrence

My suggestion - it's likely the lock pin that locks the steering wheel is frozen in the upper casting where it has to slide into the lock plate. I've seen this before - you can't turn the lower locking lever on the column until you get this freed up. Cause of the problem: either dry lubricant, no lubricant, and dissimilar metals/corrosion (steel pin, aluminum casting). Take the steering wheel off, the upper cover if equipped, locate the pin where it comes out of the casting to interface with the lock plate, and shoot it with WD40, PB Blaster, Kroil Oil, or another rust corrosion breaker, and work the lower lever until it's free. Betcha it solves your key problem (it did for me). Gotta remember, lubricants after 40 years or so tend to set up like concrete -

Steve,

I had the steering wheel off recently and when I turn the key to the on position that little pin drops down into the column so I can then move the steering wheel. Are you talking about this same pin? Does this pin suppose to drop further into the column beyond the locking plate?

Thanks

Regards

If the pin moves freely, try moving the lever itself and see if the pin moves with it. If not, the gear actuator is probably messed up (broken gear tooth, or dry lubricant also). If it refuses to move, I'd say a teardown is in order to isolate it.

Also, sometimes the intermediate column (what the lever is part of) could be damaged, or rusted. Disassembly might be advisable just to inspect/clean/lube and assemble. I think the Chassis Service Manual might be of benefit to you if you have one -

Regards (and let us know what gives) -
I have a CSM, so will refer to that. It feels like something is jammed in there causing it not to move.
Thanks

Lawrence

I figured it out. It was just rusty and not making a good connection.

Thanks
Man, Lawrence, that's good to know because when I read topic, I thought you were having trouble shooting your cig lighter, which I was going to suggest taking better aim, a pistol rest, and suggest the correct ammo. Also was worried about shooting inside a vehicle and the dangers with ricochet. Wheww! that is a relief...and about a week early for April Fool's day, but a primer nonetheless. hope you guys get a laugh.

Got a good laugh!!

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 69 Key cylinder will not go to Accessory on: March 23, 2014, 10:26:06 AM
I can't get my key to go to accessory. I have adjusted the linkage on the steering column. With no luck. The reverse back up is not connected and have tried to move the lever that is on the column in the engine compartment that connects to the reverse linkage and I don't get much movement. I am suspecting that there is something jammed in the cylinder area that is causing the reverse lockout lever to only turn about 1/2 inch. I have never removed the cylinder and seems to be a tedious job. I want to hook up the reverse lock out linkage and am stumped at this point.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks,

Lawrence

Thanks guys. James Groome who is painting the Silver Convertible for me told me this. I guess I was just stabbing in the dark for something different. Like I said I will paint the stripe black.

I recall looking at a white RS/SS Dover White car with red deluxe interior, automatic, factory cowl hood car no spoiler. Nice car out of MI.

I got to tell ya,that red stripe with silver and black top and interior would look pretty sharp IMO. Cheesy

Yea I agree that is why I was digging for a needle in a haystack. I have been looking on the site for a break down of the color combos of the stripes on the car colors.
