I think all of us here have to agree with that..  Smiley

For SOME...   lies are an everyday fact of life, and apparently the ONLY thing they know..  Sad    and once they tell so many, how would they know truth even if it bit them?

I am the original owner of a 69 Z28 with a build date 03B and it has side terminals.
We'd love to hear MORE about your car and you..   Not sure we have any other ORIGINAL purchasers who still own their cars.. Do we?  or is Morris the only one?
Morris..   please tell us more about your car...color options etc..   Did you special order it? or buy it off a lot? etc...
1070  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: New 69 Z28 302 rebuild, dizzy has rev limiter. What is the best RPM limitation? on: December 18, 2013, 06:49:35 PM
The 'factory 302 redline' was 6000 rpm.   I once had a '67 302 that would turn 10,000+.   when I drove my mostly stock build '69 DZ motor on the street, fairly hard, I had no rev limiter but I had my Sun Super Tach redline indicator set to 7000, but would occasionally go beyond that.

What your Rev limiter should be set to is based on how the engine was built, your confidence in the engine builder and the parts, and how much 'risk' you want to take.. Smiley
1071  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Back up light switch 4 speed help. on: December 18, 2013, 06:42:24 PM
William, Thats how the manual states it too but that was for column shift cars. I thought with 4 speeds there was a switch and bracket near the back of the transmission and when shifted into reverse the reverse shift rod hit the switch button which activated the rear back up light?

Rufcar, it's as William stated, and you know the manual is always correct, and it is this time too.  When your engine is ON/running, and you put the transmission into reverse, the linkage shown in the ebay ad here...

sold by many repro houses, and made of unobtanium if you want an original.. Smiley  and which connects from the transmission linkage, thru a bellcrank mounted to the frame, up to a lever on the lower part of the steering column, which rotates and changes a switch position in the column as shown in the pix below:

If you hook a potentiometer across a 1.5 V battery, and adjust the pot to the LOW end, you will be at 0 volts.. and the ammeter across from the low side of the battery to the mid point, then you can slowly adjust the voltage on the ammeter until you read full deflection (and you could then measure that voltage with a meter)...   and by flipping the battery leads, you can check deflection in the opposite direction.
1073  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 18, 2013, 10:06:10 AM
stamped code on the rear axle:   Look on the front side of the passenger side axle tube, about half way between brake and differential.    You'll have to clean the tube and use a bright light to see it...

Engine pad:   look down behind your alternator, straight down to a smoooth front pad on the engine block, adjacent to the head.  Again, you may have to clean the pad, or use some chalk to see the stamped codes.

From what's been said, it seems a very small dc voltage would engage it.   (a 1.5 vdc battery with a pot across it to allow adjusting the pot output from 0Vdc toa few millivolts?)..  (D'Arsonval movements are very sensitive to very small voltages)
1075  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare?? on: December 16, 2013, 05:20:42 PM
I'd only be interested if it were unmodified.....
1076  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare?? on: December 15, 2013, 07:03:02 PM
I like it.. Smiley     Wanna sell it?
1077  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 Engine Bay Pic's on: December 14, 2013, 02:25:15 PM
I wonder, was there some order the stamping occurred?  Was the car inspected in a certain sequence?

All three inspectors (Body, Paint and Trim Shop) were stationed at the end of the Fisher Trim Shop, just prior to the point where the body was shipped "through the wall" to Chevrolet; they worked independently.

John,  We all really appreciate your information and perspective, and I have a couple of questions concerned these 'marks' (understanding that I owned my car for over 30 yrs and never *saw* them, until getting on this camaro list.. Smiley..
1)  Why do some cars have the P T B on both side and and some only one one?
2)  Why do some cars have multiple stamps on one side of the car?  ie. My car had two T stamps... (one down below the trim tab)..
If you don't know of a specific reason for the above, I'd appreciate your 'best guess'...?

We;ll call that one 'in process'..  Smiley    and I bet you made all your panels on that english wheel I see in the background?  Smiley
1079  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Trim Tag on: December 13, 2013, 10:31:10 AM
    Thanks for the info and I do understand that the body number was not sequential.  I will never get the correct body number without the paper work but still would like to know what was around it. The 2 cars I know built 11C are 6798 cars apart and the body number is 7037 numbers apart and the oldest car or one built first had the larger number which is not in sequence.  I believe I will have a special tag made after I get the car built something like the one you described. Thanks Gary

And rather than 'paying the counterfeiters', you could also make your own tag (from Aluminum or ??) have it engraved or embossed the way you like... paint it .. or not.. and mount it in the TT location in the same holes.   Seeing or knowing a 'fake trim tag', makes me dislike the whole car, whereas seeing a TT made with the love you have for your daughter, would make all of us LIKE it even more than what the car itself is.. Smiley

Hello everyone.  My first post here and my first 69 Z-28 a week ago!  This forum has been a great collection of information for a first time owner.  I did some searching on the site and did not seem to find any information on the availability of the top post vs side post batteries on the 69 Z.  Mine has side post cables and a Delco replacement battery.  I don't think this would be the correct cables for the car, but thought I would ask here.


Beginning around June of 1969, Camaros were fitted with side post batteries.  if you have original GM part numbered side post cables be careful with them as they are 'in demand'... Smiley     check the build date on the trim tag, or provide this list with your VIN and we can answer your question with more certainty.
