31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Another Tire Question on: March 27, 2014, 08:45:15 PM
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!!

36  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.
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: D90 Stripes on: March 22, 2014, 10:06:18 PM
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.
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 x77 originality on: March 22, 2014, 09:59:17 PM
Very doubtful a 3.31 gear is in a Z28. No pics no docs no way to tell what you are looking at. Yea it has four leaf springs, but are they repros or original. As the others have said treat the car as a V8 Camaro regarding price.
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: D90 Stripes on: March 22, 2014, 09:50:16 PM
Yea I did not think so. Was just curious. I believe the red D90 stripe was only on a white, burgundy and I think a black car.

I will put back the original black stripe.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / D90 Stripes on: March 22, 2014, 04:42:31 PM
Would it be possible to put a red D90 on a silver with black interior car? Black Convertible top?

Joe just restored the horns on my silver X66 convertible. Great job...

I don't think those are what's on the multi's though are they? I'm thinking they are different then the mono. I can't find a pic with any like whats on that car in the pic.

They are all the same. The factory e cable support has a "W" stamped on the end of them. I don't know if the repops have that same stamp. If you need a picture of it send me an email.

Phillip,

I will be there both days with the Silver Z and Silver Convertible showing with Eddie and all the others in Classic Camaros of the Carolinas. Look forward to meeting those active on this board which will be there.
