736  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z/28 Bumper Guards on: February 24, 2009, 09:29:08 PM
They are not "Z" rear bumper guards. Because of lower rear trim height Z/28 equipment included V32 rear bumper guards to comply with federal bumper height standards. They were optional; any 69 Camaro could be ordered with them. I believe they were also included with heavy-duty rear springs.

Thanks

Are the rear Z bumper guards the same size as rear bumper guards for other 69 Camaros?
Are the front bumper guards shorter than the Z rear guards?

Thanks

I am off to the upholstery shop.

I'd take it apart, clean everything properly, lube all the parts with brake fluid, and re-assemble it.
That is the part I am talking about. The block with the pressure warning switch. Is that part also known as the brake manifold?
Should I clean that any special way?

Thanks John.
I did the same on the proportioning vlave under the master cyclinder. I did not see an easy way to take that apart. Your thoughts?

Lawrence

The only proportioning valve is down on the subframe below the driver's door. The other device below the master cylinder (besides the round metering valve) is the distribution block, which has no valving function at all - it only contains the differential pressure warning switch.

Well it looks like I am not going to be able to use my original dash pad unless I go with Just Dashes. I am not sure it will be worth it. The plastic under the vinyl is cracked and the vinyl has shrunk pretty bad revealing the plastic edge.

What vendors do ya'll recommend if I go repro?

Thanks

Thanks guys.

I took my metering valve off the car, soaked it in Evap or rust rinsed it out with water then blew it out with compressed can air then dried it thoroughly with a blow dryer. Is there anyway that I can look at the pipe inlets and see if I have messed something up? Or should I squirt something in the metering valve to keep it lubed up?
744  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Transmission crossmember bolts on: February 15, 2009, 10:29:42 AM
I think I know the answer to this but just to confirm, don't the cross member bolts have the threads up? Otherwise you could not move the cross member with the body on?

Thanks guys

I am going to look at my originals again and see how they look.
746  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Weatherstripping on: February 10, 2009, 07:47:31 PM
Judging sheet is a concern.

I think you know the answer then, and it's not cheap!
What.....NOS?
747  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake rebuilders on: February 10, 2009, 07:46:33 PM
Hello again! Can anyone recommend someone good to send my original master cylinder and power brake booster to for rebuilding/replating. I want to make sure I get the ones I send in back and not a replacement as they are original to the car. I also would like the master cylinder sleeved with stainless. Thanks for any and all suggestions.

GM did a lot of option mixing , I used to get in an argument every weekend at a cruz in or car show with my 67 , it is a 327 210 horsepower with a two barrell carb but it has a console with gauge's and factory installed tach , people would argue up and down that because it was a two barrell it COULD NOT have a factory tach , well after more info surfaced come to find out my tach redlines at 5K which is only correct for one engine A 327 210 HORSEPOWER ! I had a 69 chevelle that came from the factory with a 396 375 and a muncie 3 speed ! found the build sheet under the carpet it was coded MC1 muncie 3 speed ! so to have a camaro with a deluxe interior and no console would have been a normal thing ,,
In high school I had a 68 327/210 hp powerglide, column shift, A/C, PS, PB, wheel covers, black vinyl top, blue with bright blue interior and a BENCH seat. I wish I had that car today. Just very different. It had 64,000 miles when we picked it up from the original owner. Paid $1,200 for it in 1979.

That is pretty unique. I once had a 1970 Camaro RS that had column shift and no console. It was only a 350 2bbl. but it looked strange with the column shift. I like the non console look where the carpet can be see on the tunnel and around the 4-speed shifter.

I have an original 69 Camaro Pace Car.  It has the 350/300 engine.  As would be expected, it has a deluxe interior, but it does not have the gauge package or even a console.  It is a column shift non console car.  Also, this car came with a powerglide and a 10 bolt rear (on an SS).  At car shows, I have been told my car is not a real Pace Car or a real SS for that matter because of these options (or lack of).  Of course, this is by the uninformed and naive.  I know what it is. 
I have a buddy that has a 70 Camaro column shift with hounds tooth interior. The car has its original motor and transmission. 350 Turbo transmission.
