781  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: exhaust french locks on: November 23, 2008, 09:44:07 AM
Yup, it makes a difference - the french locks go between the bolt head and the washer; if you put them between the washer and the manifold, the washer interferes with bending them against the flat on the bolt head.

Are french locks installed on 69 302's?
782  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 Z Front shock sticker location on: November 14, 2008, 08:43:00 PM
I did not take a picture of the sticker location on my original shocks before I restored them and now I dont remember which end of the shock the sticker suppose to go. Can anyone help me out with this?

783  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Pully Misalignment on: November 11, 2008, 08:17:08 PM

I took everything off the motor. I checked the alignment again tonight and it is about 1/2 inch off? I dont know if the alignment was any different prior to taking the motor apart. I did not have any problems with belts flying off or chaffing. Who knows. I am going to check the balancer and try to press it on further.

There is a 772 fan and clutch for sale on Team Camaro right now. I dont know if the clutch is correct or not.

I have just put my crankshaft pully back on my motor and it is not aligning up with the air pump and alternator. I did not rebuild the motor...just pulled it out of the car put it on the motor stand and conducted cosmetic restoration. We did not rebuild it or take the balancer off. I dont know the pullys are not aligned? Any ideas? Maybe it got bumped? Any ideas?

My prior post was per the AIM, but after looking at pics of unrestored cars it seems they were inconsistent (on the fronts at least).

I agree.
787  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Lower control arm bolt washers on: November 07, 2008, 09:14:52 PM
There are no washers on the lower control arm attachments; the only large washers were on the ends of the upper control arm shaft. How many washers were on the upper shafts?

Thanks John.

The AIM shows the threaded end of the lower control arm bolts facing forward, but when I looked at old pictures of mine before they were removed I noticed the threaded end faced rearward. I also spoke to firstgenaddict and he had pictures of orignal cars that also had rear facing threads. Is the AIM wrong or what?


788  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Lower control arm bolt washers on: November 07, 2008, 06:24:33 AM

When reinstalling my lower control arms I have noticed that I only have two washers. I dont remember if the washers go behind the nut or ther bolt head. The AIM does not even show these washers. I may have gotten some washers mixed up in the bolt hardware while evap o rusting the parts. But if the washers are correct does anyone know if they go behind the nut or bolt head?

Body broadcast sheets are full of two-letter codes. Box 103 is fender piercing: YA has been seen on both COPOs and Z/28s. Since neither received engine ID it may only indicate the "Camaro" script on the side. I have a copy of a Z/28-RS sheet and the code is YB.

More interesting is box 104 "emb". For Z/28 the code is G. The box is blank on COPOs. 

Wonder if the "R" beside the "G" in the fender extension is for RS cars?

I posted a picture of the "XO" code inside my fenders and John Z mentioned that these codes were used for piercing of the fenders. I guess for RS cars since my car is a RS Z. Have you seen "XO" before? There was another 69 RS car in the paint shop the same time my car was there and it too had the "XO" markings inside the fenders. However this other car was not a Z/28.

post a picture
791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Letters in Fender extensions on: October 23, 2008, 02:09:40 PM
probably some code written by a salvage yard at one time.  looks way to new to be original marking.

No that is not it.  The reason the markings look "new" are because the surface rust has been removed. This is the second time this "GR" has been found on 03 RS cars. Just dont know why??
792  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Letters in Fender extensions on: October 20, 2008, 05:34:28 AM
Can someone tell me what this "GR" means inside my fender extensions. It does not mean Green. My car is Olympic Gold and I spoke to another RS Z/28 owner whose car was built one week later than mine and he too hat this written inside his fender extension. His car was Phantom Green though. Perhaps this like he "XO" on the inside of the fender helps tell the line worker something about the assemble of the car? If some can tell me what this means that would be great.

Here is a before photo of the shifter.

Try Evaporust. You can buy it in a quart jug at Auto Zone. The stuff is amazing. I have been restoring all of my original fasteners, centerlink, brake calibers, steering box, shifter etc off of my 69 Z with unbelievable results. Your POP has a thin type of coating or something on it and you have the owners name on the tape which could be damaged. You may want to paint it on then rinse it off with water. I have been submerging my parts then rinsing with water.

I attached a few pics that show "after" the evaporust. Wish I had some before but they had a lot of surface rust and grime.

Good Luck
795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Overspray on underside of Hood on: October 10, 2008, 03:41:41 PM
The black dip-primed hood, fenders, and header panel were mounted on a conveyor buck in car position with about a 1" gap between the panels when they were sprayed with body color; the outer edges of the vertical weld flange on the hood got full coverage, but very little or no body color normally showed on the inboard side of the hood flange.

Thanks John
