What 'T3' means..   *might* have to do with the filament size..  but I cannot find any confirmation..?
1247  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO'S LEFT ON THE ROAD on: September 26, 2013, 07:54:44 AM
The noted damage is interesting, wonder if the broken motor mount had anything to do with putting the car in the water.
Mike
Didn't the broken engine mount issue sometimes cause the throttle to stick open, hence the recall to fit interlocking mounts?
Yes, a broken LHS motor mount *could* cause the accelerator to jam up (I had it happen to me with my dad's '63 Impala.. Smiley ...   but I doubt that would have been an issue with the car less than 2 yrs old?  and I don't believe it had a HP engine in it...  the mount could have broken as a result of hitting the water at speed...
1248  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69Z rear ratios on: September 25, 2013, 10:31:47 PM
Yes, it's possible..  although not the std ration (3.73 is std).   Posi was an option, and not mandatory for Z28s or any other model I don't believe...  although I'd bet 99% of Z28's had Posi...   3.55 would be good for the highway, but would likely be difficult around town given the 302 characteristics...

I can't believe I went downstairs to the garage to check this.   Smiley  I think I have a serious case of Camaroitis....

the three I have with correct T3 markings are a C, a J, and a K....

No offense to Springsteen, but more than likely it would be THIS or THIS ONE.
Son, you're in a heap of trouble playing that loud music!  Cool

....Anybody here ever have American flag pants? I found a picture of me wearing mine. I'll have to dig it out and post it. I think it was even 1969 too.

Please don't!!  Smiley     Those days are best left WAAAY behind us..  *L*

thanks for the links Phillip.. .  Smiley
1252  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rotisserie on: September 25, 2013, 01:37:27 PM
If you are going that far (rotisserie frame off), then you should remove the subframe for restoring independently which also reduces the load on your rotisserie support.   Attach to the same points on the body that the subframe attaches to, and the large nutserts at the top of the firewall (for the fenders)..

Thanks fellas, for the T3 lamp education ....   Smiley
as it turns out both the lamps I bought in Charlotte, and one of the ones on my car are correct for '69.. but no inked stamps on the back.. (I cleaned 'em too good).. 
1254  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: am/fm radio repair on: September 25, 2013, 12:46:49 PM
We should have a contest..  so who can drive the MOST miles during that 17 m 03s version of InnaGaddaVida..  *G*
1255  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 25, 2013, 11:56:10 AM
OK.   that's what I confused with a 'date code'..  the code in the glass.    The two I bought in Charlotte, and the one I already had on my car had differing 'glass codes'..  and no stamped codes on back (already cleaned off I suppose)..
1256  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Which crossflow/transverse muffler on BBC on: September 25, 2013, 11:32:57 AM
I
I'm the one who entered 'Other'. My system was made in the late 80's and is SS and uses a cross flow muffler with stock sizes and exits.
I don't know vendor though.   Sad  The sound is nice actually with a comfortable deep tone to it and not loud.

Mike


I also entered 'other' since there was not an entry option for 'stock gm'...  small block 302 here...
1257  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 25, 2013, 11:30:14 AM
I hope, before you reinstall them, you're going to clean off that green gunk, Austin..  Smiley
Was there also a date code made into the glass (on the front at the top of the bulb?..
1258  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: date codes on T3 lamps? on: September 24, 2013, 01:30:36 PM
The 'date codes' I was previously referring to as made into the glass, on the front face of the lens at the top...  I'll take a photo next time I have my camera in the garage...  Maybe the ones I purchased on the Charlotte show are 'newer' and follow a different format??
1259  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 69 owners with "Pebble-grained" steering wheels (not shrouds) please check in on: September 24, 2013, 07:57:50 AM
VIN difference:    672580 - 672384 = 196 cars difference on the line...

Based on the 21 work days in August '69, and the number of cars produced during Aug, the avg daily rate was 435/day.. assuming a single 8 hr shift that month, 196/435 ~ 3.6 hrs difference on the line...

Phillip,

Do you have the weights of the 230/250 ci 6 cyl engine?   I've been under the impression the weight was very similar to a small block V8 of the same era..?
