.... I have seen the 69 washer bottles on either side of the engine, which side is correct? ....

I believe the washer bottle if on different sides of the engine bay, depending on it RS or not...  RS on passenger fenderwell...  someone will correct me or clarify if it's more to this than what I've said. and there probably is. Smiley

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?
1266  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Top post vs side post batteries. on: December 19, 2013, 08:54:53 AM
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...
1267  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
1268  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.
1270  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.
1271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: amp gauge on: December 18, 2013, 08:47:48 AM
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)
1272  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.....
1273  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?
1274  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
