There should also be a pressed-in rubber seal in the end of the speedo "bullet" where the cable ferrule screws on to keep gear lube from "climbing" the flex shaft.
John do I have to unscrew the cable from the bullet to get to the rubber seal?

Thank you very much.

Are these parts I can buy at NAPA?

Thanks again

Yes - unscrew the cable ferrule from the "bullet" and you should see the black rubber seal. Don't know offhand if NAPA carries the seal separately or not. The "bullet" is called a "fitting", and is P/N 3869912 (includes the seal), in group 4.338. The seal itself is P/N 3869910.

Thanks John I will check that.

Thanks for the input.

After running my car for about 20 miles in City traffic I have gear lube leaking off the speedo cable just before the cable attaches to the speedometer underneath the cluster. Any idea what would cause this? I am using Royal Purple synthetic lube. I checked the level and it is not over filled.

Thanks

When I took my originals out in 1983, all of the shorter leaves on both sides were broken in half right at the alignment bolt hole, the only one supporting the weight of the car was the main leaf that ran from the front bushing to the rear shackles.
Do you remember how many miles were on the leaves at the time you removed them?
653  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Leaf Springs When Restoring on: August 10, 2009, 06:02:27 AM
Good to know. Thanks. I went back and forth. I ended up replacing them. The bands literally fell apart during removal but surprisingly they were not sagging much. They just looked to be in really poor shape.
That is what happened to mine too. The bands just fell off and the arches looked pretty bad. But so far so good.

here you go.

I had my original springs re-arched at a heavy duty truck spring shop and have had very good success with ride height and ride.
I would like to know how long it has been since re-arching?

First off I must admit that my springs were not sagging bad, but to answer your question the springs have been re-arched for one year.

Thanks guys.
658  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Casting Dates on: July 28, 2009, 05:53:09 AM
Question for you guys. On a 08E build car or any car for that matter should the casting date of the heads be before, after or real close to the casting date of the block? I am referencing a small block 300 HP setup.

Thanks!

Kurt,

I agree with you, I think mine was replaced too. Based on the dates. I guess the dealer smeared the undercoating on the tank?

Here is my date code.

The tank does not look like it was replaced because it has under coating all over it that matched what was under the car? But of course I dont know for sure.

Thanks,
