781  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Pully Misalignment on: November 08, 2008, 10:20:41 PM
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?

Thanks,

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.
783  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?

Thanks,

Lawrence

Guys,

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?

Thanks

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.

Thanks

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??
788  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.

Thanks

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

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
792  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Overspray on underside of Hood on: October 09, 2008, 05:38:02 AM
Hi All,

The underside of my hood has a very small amount of Gold oversray on it around the cowl and upeer side edges. Was this a typical from the factory?
793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: NAT MFG marking on fender ??? on: October 06, 2008, 08:46:52 PM
Looks like "Pcs" under the "Nat". That reinforcement may have been the top piece in a container, with the supplier and the number of pieces noted on it. The fender outer "skin" came from Bristol Road Stamping, but that long inner reinforcement was welded to the fender "skin" at the car assembly plant (see the '68 Assembly Manual, UPC 11-13, sheet A3).

I have "GR" written on the inside of my lower fender extensions. My car is an Olympic Gold RS Z/28. Any idea what this means? I would post a picture but the file is to large.
794  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 03, 2008, 09:12:32 PM
Thanks 68Z. I am just going to put them on and drive it. I will see what happens. I will only drive the car around 1500 miles a year anyway.
795  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 03, 2008, 06:16:55 AM
Depends on how much you'll drive it.
If it's a show car, you can reuse them. If you're going to drive it, paint some Koni's grey and be done with it. The repros won't hold up to regular driving.....

I'd be interested in a picture of the shock date stamps if you get a chance... Smiley



Kurt here is a pic witth the date code. If you want a larger file that you can zoom in on let me know and I will email you a picture.
