No, it's not origionally MM. I built what I wanted. I've had this since '83. Took years to decide on a color. Complimented on color often. "Different" they say.  Doing an origional '68 Code 00 now. Not 50K cars but they work for me. And I drive them...often.
I don't post pics often so this may not show the size I want. We'll see.

Part I have was manufactured by Fisher Corp.,  PAT. #3287094 ( Patent not Part) Would it's use be incorrect without RPO to substantiate?
768  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Interior roof liner on a '67...installation? on: November 01, 2008, 07:10:02 AM
   It's easier to do than to explain in two sentences. If you are frustrated before you have begun as stated then you may have set yourself up for more of the same. It's really not difficult. It requires patience. I'm not sure why you cannot take advantage of your rotisserie but it doesn't matter. I'll touch on a few points, the headliner will "teach" you the rest. Get many vice grip clamps. Put screws in to locate any hardware mounting locations after install. Lay it out prior to installation to acclimate and flatten. Apply adhesive to both car and liner and let sit(obvious?). Pull the front and back taught at middle. Work in increments outward. Applying cement as you go at times. You'll have to slice the bow sleeves back. You simply have to work the perimeter slowly re-adjusting as you go. The part that requires patience and more working is the tack strip where the sail panel is. Sometimes pulling it taught there and using widemouth clamps helps. Install trim moldings an voila! Believe it or not any small wrinkles will dissipate. Contact cement is cooperative. You can re-adjust required areas. The moldings can be pulled off in places and the liner pulled tighter as needed. Then just push them back on. 
   You will get a multitude of on-line techniques. Patience and self observation are the key elements.

    This is to extend a large measure of gratitude to John Z. I have read his data and papers written on the subject of timing and vacuum advance. With his consultation, his VA Can recommendations and tuning parameters, I have greatly improve performance.
    I post this on open forum not for the regulars who are aware of John's knowledge, but for those who are new and to value his advice. Acquisition of his knowledge in past posts and in the future is an understated asset.
    Thanks again John. Today's ride with the update was exhilarating.

 Connection OD is 11/16. It's in Rick's cat. page 254.

What was the specific year and engine usage for that part? It's clearly a flame arrestor, and that function was served on most Corvettes by a fine mesh screen press-fitted on the end of the elbow inside the air cleaner.

I don't know. I found it with my NOS parts and referenced it in a catalogue which stated it's discontinuation. It is obviously not applicable to my 327 and thought it belonged with a different hose configuration. Or even if it pertained to Camaros.

Is this breather hose filter discontinued or am I mistaken? Thank you.

Have unknown NOS parts in my stock. I know what they are NOT for. Assistence required by book owner.

L78steve,  PM sent

i cannot say how well the Nova hoods fit. As stated, I want to know how well the new  Camaro repos fit as well. I can tell you this. We ended up throwing the Nova repo fenders out that came w/ the car. I repaired the GM ones with lower parts cut from those worthless pieces of scrap. It would appear that the latest, higher quality Camaro repos are better. I'm not yet updated on Nova parts. Helping a friend restore one on spec. NC? I might have one but shipping will smoke your wallet.

Kurt, I was able to delete it. I just wanted to solidify your electrolysis procedure and suggest it's value in restos as a substitution for cabinet blasting. I found it quite an asset in it's money and time saving over the years.

I don't want to do this again. When I quoted someone my comment ended up INSIDE the purple/lilac quote box. Now I cannot edit it.

  *Make sure you get one that was recently manufactured. 4 years ago I did a 67 for a customer who bought a Gdmark hood. The crown was wrong. I had to block the sides and jack the center down at the peak to correct. As expected the top buckled a bit but fortunately hoods are easy to block. Why? He wanted me to and paid accordingly.

  *L78 steve: I am presently doing an L-78 Nova with a good SS hood. I've become aware that correct louver support tabs can be purchased to convert a standard hood. Outside of that, the design simplicity between the two remains unchanged.

  As I am also looking for a GM SS Camaro hood I am interested in the fit of the new repo ones also.
779  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Will a Pontiac TH400 Transmission fit a TH350? on: October 03, 2008, 06:00:02 PM
  *That tranny is longer. The tailshaft housing would have to be changed and that means changing the mainshaft. Our Camaros require a shortshaft 400.
  *Some Pontiac trannys have multiple application mounting holes. Others will not fit your Chevy block.  Exactly which P. trannys will bolt up to the Chevy block I am unsure but the length alone will not be applicable for your requirements.
780  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original shocks off my 69 Z/28 on: October 01, 2008, 09:20:49 PM
 At 50K miles a car's shock piston has travelled up and down in excess of 20 million times. I used to race snowbobiles and suspension monitoring was important and they traveled even more. They affect handling, braking, tire and suspension wear and performance. As they generate heat their performance decreases even when new. Or when expensive rebuildable gas units are used. Now one can imagine the effectiveness of a 39 year old non performance shock. Aquisition of new correct spirals to retain the authenticity of your car may be in your best interest.
