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.

Are there star washers between the VR and radiator support when mounted?

thank you
637  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.

639  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Auxiliary lighting group ZJ9 on: September 10, 2009, 09:42:47 AM
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.

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.

Obvious question but have to ask it. Have you tightened down the lights to the car recently?
642  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Adding Gills to an X77 - Opinions Please on: September 04, 2009, 10:01:05 PM
It seems that true X-77, X-66, X-55 cars are a dying breed. It seems to me that at least 75% of these type of cars have had some sort of style trim group added. If your car has no style trim group options added I would tell you to leave it alone. I like things that are different than the masses and it appears the masses love to add some sort of trim. But do what makes you happy it is your car.  Does your car have other style trim group options added?

Is the spring the big return spring that comes out when the solenoid is removed?

Jimmy V.
it is in there.

I was able to buy a new bullet for $5 from a local transmission shop. I put it in last night. I will take the car for a nice long drive and see what happens.

I had the same problem, and found an excellent thread on the NCRS board. I realize if you are not an NCRS member it does not help you, but the thrust of the article was about the spring inside the solenoid. Aftermarket or springs that come in the rebuild kits are a different lengths than what came original. When they heat up the tension strength of spring changes and does not allow the starter to engage. Heat sheilds may work but from what I read you would only be masking the problem. The real solution is to get a standard not metric spring length for your old GM starter.
I happened to have an old starter at the house so I took the spring out of the solenoid and put it in the faulty starter and that cured my problem. Additionally, I sanded paint off some of the contacts. Also make sure that the contact point from the armeture to the solenoid is good.
Somebody that knows more about this hopefully will chime in. I have only done this once.

My starter is still not operating correctly and it is not heat related. I am getting a single click when the starter is cold and after repeated attempts it starts. I must have a bad connection?
Any ideas or comments?
