46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 1969 Big Block Failed to Start! on: November 28, 2008, 11:50:29 AM
I just obtained a 396 Camaro, I drove it to work this week to show some people at work...fueled up at a gas station after the rush hour commute in the city and the car would not start! When I turned the key I had zero response, no clicking, no noise...the dreaded silence. I was in a pin stripe suit and tie, had no tools and was stuck. After about 5-10 minutes, it started again and got home no problem. Does this symptom seem like what I just learned about called STARTER HEAT SOAK? If so, should I install a heat shield? I also read that it may be the wires that get too hot coming from the starter more than the soleniod itself, should I wrap those wires and confirm a good ground, no paint on the block, etc?
Thanks.

The car was redone and the trunk lid was replaced, I will need to check if the proper trunk lid was selected at that time.
48  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 trunk lid? on: November 03, 2008, 03:15:51 PM
When I open my trunk, the trunk lid does not "pop" open, is the weight of the spoiler preventing this, or does this car's trunk not pop open?
Thanks

I suspect I need to sand or strip the exisitng paint off? At least the most visible areas, like on top?...do I need to do the entire radiator?
Thanks all

I just obtained a restored 1969. It had about 600 miles since it was gone through, I now have placed about 300 miles on the car. The paint on the top of the radiator is flaking off exposing bare metal. Should I pull the radiator and strip as much as possible and paint again. Do we suspect the paint was not high heat paint and that is why this ocurring?
Thanks

Thanks for the information, does anyone have a troubleshooting starting point to resolve before I start to dig in?
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Wiper Motor on: October 23, 2008, 03:05:19 PM
I just obtained a 69' .
When the wipers are turned off, are they supposed to return to the down position, or just stop at the loacation on the windshield when/where I turned them off?
Thanks
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1969 Front Spoiler on: October 20, 2008, 12:52:57 PM
I just purchased a 1969 RS/SS Convertible. The front spolier is damaged and I would like to replace it. I would like one that is flexible and also looks as orginal as possible, this one is hard plastic, and pulling out of a driveway, if it scrapes again, it is damaged and I would then need to get another one. I saw one at Rick's first generation for $34.99, seems reasonable price, yet shipping may be costly?
Thanks for any input and where others have found success (or dissapointments).

Thanks KurtS:
My thought is for casting date and vehicle production dates these are too close together?

Thanks again for the help.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Cowl Tag Looks Odd? on: September 13, 2008, 05:18:19 PM
The date on the cowl tag is 01C...I am told thie following numbers are on the motor...do these date code numbers show the motor was built January 16th to 18th range of 1969, and is that too close to the cowl tag date?

Block 3955272 A189 Casting

T0120JG Stamp on Top

Heads 3931063 A169

Intake 3931061067 A169

Left Side Exhaust Manifold 3909879

Right Side Exhaust Manifold 3916178

Alternater 1100834 9A10

Carb 7029204 FF

Thanks

I tried to attach a pic, too large...it has a slot and I am told the car was sent to Europe actually

I am looking at a very clean 1969 camaro to buy, yet the cowl tag is alerting to me, it is missing the following at the bottom. It makes me leary! Build date is 01C (January 3rd week)
