1936  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Which Master Cylinder Repair Kit? on: December 13, 2012, 11:35:47 AM
thanks for all the comments (which I do agree with)..   After disassemblying my MC, I found where it sat so long (32 yrs), it accumulated a little water and there is a rough area on the bottom of the cylinder that doesn't look like it will hone away.. so I'm probably going to send it to WhitePost Restorations for brass sleeving and rebuilding ($175 and LT warranty).  I've used White Post before, but it was on an early Corvette MC, and now Billy has passed away.   

Does anyone recommend any other shop for sleeving?  My MC is the original one and worth the cost.   

Did you guys know there is a casting date on the side of the Delco Remy MC?   Mine is dated '175' which should correspond to late June and my car is a 09C (Sept) with a late August engine.   The MC also has a 'D4' cast into it, just below the '175 date code'..  anyone know what the D4 is for?

I have 'half' of an NOS caliper for a '68...  in the box..   Had it for many years (35?)..  Is there any value to just the one half?

George,
Mine measures 39" on top and 45.5" below the rear window.
Exactly the same as mine (outside of seams)... Smiley    they must have been pretty consistent..

Sure appears to be a 'poor design' to me.... but of course, this is looking back after many years, so lots of design fail that test...
PS.  I always thought if I liked the look of a 'painted bumper', I'd think about stripping the chrome from a regular bumper, and then painting it body color...   Has anyone else done this?

i've rebuilt 3 cars brake systems over the past 25 yrs, using DOT 5, but in each of those cases, I rebuilt/replaced every rubber part, and flushed all the lines with alcohol and dried first.   In each of those cases, I've had no reason to do any further work on the brakes, and those cars *sit* 99% of time..  and the brakes are always good when I drive them!   I'm a believer, but I also do it *right*.. and use fresh rubber parts, and use DOT 5 as the assembly lube when assemblying the parts..

What's this about winter storage?Huh?     you guys don't drive your cars year around??? 
*smiling down here in the sunny south*....

PS.  Engines run lots stronger in the winter time when the air gets down in the 30's...  Smiley

I appreciate those comments and recommendsations.

If I have to, I wil do that, but I plan to use DOT 5 fluid, and typically rebuilt/new cylinders use DOT 3 as an assembly lube.  it's also recommended not to use DOT 5 fluid, when the rubber seals have been wet wtih DOT 3 (although I'm ignorant of any chemical reasons for this).   I'll continue looking for a rebuild kit, and if I can't find one.. I may have to use that route... and then I'll be faced with using DOT 3 vs DOT 5.

Crazy stuff for sure....  coding guy must have been stoned..  Smiley
1945  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: month code of F muncie? on: November 30, 2012, 04:52:46 PM
Steve,

So you can you shed any light on WHY '69 Muncies didn't get the F or G codes?   
....    and instead they skipped those letters for some reason?   I've heard they did that, but never have heard a reason....
 
Was this true for ALL Muncies in general, regardless of year?  or only for '69?
1946  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Which Master Cylinder Repair Kit? on: November 30, 2012, 02:53:14 PM
I'd checked with the local NAPA stores; no one had one for my car.. at least in stock.
I'm checking for the Raybestos MK501 - I confirmed you are correct re the application.   that one should have the 1-1/8" piston...
Thanks again:

PS.  I have the MK472, that will cost me $$ to send back to Rock Auto.   If someone has a 'Camaro with 1" piston MC (ie. drum brake cars), I will sell it to them cheap; I was told it was the last one they had when I ordered...

Thanks Ed,

I'll check that one out...
1948  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Does this 67 undercarriage look unrestored? on: November 30, 2012, 09:51:45 AM
Yes, I have some photos - too high resolution for posting here....  I can reduce the resolution, but not sure the required detail will show up?  Or maybe I can move them to photo bucket and post the addys here?   Give me a few days and I'll do one or both...  unless you have another suggestion..

I just ordered an Master Cylinder Repair Kit for my '69 Z28, and was sent an MK472 (which has a 1" dis piston).   
My Z28 has a 1-1/8" piston, so I'm returning the MK472 (unless one of you fellas need it for a different car combo?).   Is the MK1108 kit correct for the '69 Z28 MC?   It's very difficult to get specs on these parts from the online sellers...
