I have not changed the cap. I will check again to see if I have the same issue.

My cap seems to hold a lot of pressure. When I take it off just seems to pop to hard. I dont recall having this issue with the original tank.

John Z would a tank change have anything to do with the pressure at the cap?

Thanks Smiley

As I thought.

I keep getting a varied voltage reading after Pirkle has rebuilt the VR. I have sent it back to him twice the second time he found a loose resistor so I thought the problem was cured. Last night I installed got a 13 volt reading once, then a 16.6 then a 17-18 volt reading. The funny thing is that my amp gauge is steady not pulsating...the gauge looks like I have a normal charge scenario. I took the original one off and put the auto zone model back on and have a nice 14 volt reading with a good amp gauge reading. I don't know what to do. Any ideas other than calling Pirkle back.

Thanks

I have a dated rebuilt original that has started to charge high, then discharge, then go neutral. I bought it somewhere else, but I hope Pirkle can fix it.

By the way, the gauge is a mili-volt meter, not an ammeter. It measures the drop on a wire between the terminal block and the horn relay. I thought that was interesting.

I sent mine back to Pirkle yesterday. He is going to replace the resistors. After talking to him he did not rebuild it when I sent it to him the first time. He replated the base set it and then repainted the cover.

I should have just repainted the cover and left well enough alone. Mine is the same VR that the car left the factory with and worked perfect before hand. Live and learn. I hope John can fix it I want to put that one on the car.

Good luck with yours.

I am going to send it back to John one more time. He is going to replace the resistors. I hope this works.
605  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z Voltage Regulator on: October 05, 2009, 08:45:33 PM
Why do I have it in my mind that there might be some rubber expansion mounts behind the regulator, like they use on one side of a radiator?Huh Am I just loosin it?

-Mark.
Correct.

Well nuts were not used on 69's.

BUMP..... 100 views and nobody has a pic of an original firewall  pad as installed from the factory?HuhHuhHuh??
I would have posted mine but dont have A/C.

If you need anymore let me know.

Are there star washers between the VR and radiator support when mounted?
609  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: UOIT cards? on: September 23, 2009, 06:17:17 PM
yes it does have tinted glass, just for grins .....Lamisafety // M148 AS1  E2 DOT 459  43R-001296,  all the other windows have PPG solex Herculite, and yes it has a black vinyl top.....standard 711  interior with Z-23 accent group.........car also has tilt, air, and rear window de-fogger, 14X7 rally wheels YJ.....rear spolier, standard SS hood.

Nice car Gordon.

Dash pad?
611  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 z manual steering gasket cover install on: September 11, 2009, 05:30:21 PM
thank you
612  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 z manual steering gasket cover install on: September 11, 2009, 10:19:09 AM
The adjusting bolt is threaded to the cap. You will need to  "un screw" the cover by turning the adjuster. Go easy and do not beat on it with a hammer, you may need to loosed the cap with a very this putty knife if the old gasket is stuck.
 Re adjust box when done.

 Good luck Mike

How do you re adjust the box? Would this procedure be loacted in the Chasis Service manual?

Can someone give me a few tips about the install of the above gasket? Is there more to it than removing the three screws that hold the cover on? I am a bit inimidated by the center adjusting screw.

Thanks,

Thank you. My wire is black from the light to the first connector, then orange from the connector to the brown wire double connector at the license plate lamp, just like A.I.M. page U25. But, mine is routed like it shows for convertible although mine is a coupe. My light only comes on with the headlite switch on. I would say this is original to the car. What do you think? are there any other Camaros seen with this option out there and how do their lights work?
I would go with what JohnZ said due to the wiring diagram showing it that way.
615  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Is this RS/SS real 396? on: September 06, 2009, 09:08:08 AM
With no documentation this car could have been about anything. One thing that seems strange to me would be why someone would take a deluxe door panel car and convert to standard panels. Unless both doors were badly rusted and someone put doors back on the car with the standard interior door opening hardware already installed. Remember the door opening hardware is different for the standard and deluxe interior cars.
