They are great at reducing the value of an otherwise nice car.......
2012  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: rear end noise from my 69 z on: August 20, 2012, 08:50:59 AM
the noise is most likely the positraction clutch packs; Possibly you might need some 'whale oil' posi additive...  ?    Smiley
(Not sure the original stuff is available any longer.....?)..

Even if the factory didn't use the bushiing, I can see no reason why YOU cannot use it within the rules for your class....  right PN..  right outlet... Smiley ..  there's no reason they should care if there is a reducer busihing there..     if they ask, tell them the threads were stripped and you bushed it yourself so it would be usable..
2015  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Barn Find on: August 17, 2012, 07:25:54 AM
It also looked TOO nice to be an 'old barn car'...   and there were no 'Rallye Sport' badges on the fenders... as someone pointed out, which tells me it might have gotten an 'RS' makeover maybe sometime the last few years..  and WHY was it sitting in an old barn, covered in dust?     Could it have been HIDDEN in there?  for some reason?     It will be interesting if the title comes back clear... for the new owners (and I noticed it sill had the 'barn find' tag on it after the cleaning.. so maybe they haven't done that as of the photos)..   Does anyone recognize what state that tag is from?

That spoiler looks more like a '70 Boss 302 spoiler...?

the current owner says the engine numbers, including VIN, match..   he says entire drivetrain (engine, trans, rear) are all factory original and *match*..  I've asked for the numbers; he will call me back.   He says the ONLY thing not original or missing is the air cleaner (has a chrome a/c on it.   that has rusted it's been on it so long)..  He says the rust came from the car being stored so long (inside a garage/shed, but with carpet piled over it..  the carpet held moisture against those rusted areas..    He says he paid $25K 2 yrs ago.... and has done nothing but store it and remove the engine/trans since...

Good example and case in point:   I own 55 and '57 Nomads, both assembled in the Atlanta, GA assembly plant.   but ALL Nomad bodies were build in Cleveland ('55 thru '57 at least).   The Cleveland fisher body plant delivered the bodies (from firewalll back) painted and complete with interior in place,  in Atlanta (and other assembly plants as far away as LA), the bodies were placed on the chassis along with engines and drivetrain, front sheet metal etc..  so in these (and lots of cases) the front clips were painted not only in different (adjacent plants) but also in different STATES with a train ride in between...  Smiley

The ad says that the floors are great....  so are the rear fenders around the wheel well, and probably the area around the rear glass the major rust areas on such a car?   Are repair panels available for those areas?...  What do you guys think this car is worth?

... and you will learn to love driving the Corvette.... looking past those big fender bulges as you drive down the road...  Smiley
that should help to ease the pain of the Camaro sale..  and you still have the ultimate Camaro to help with that as well!

"If you have 68,69 original hardware please give description so others with those years may benefit.
Thanks, Bob"

OK-for 1969:  from my original '69 Z28: 
Bolt:  3/8" thread, 1-1/4" long, 1/8" unthreaded shank under bolt head which has an 'A' centered with 6 has marks (grade 8?).
lock washer:  standard appearing 3/8" split lock washer
large thick washer:   1" dia, 1/8 thick 3/8 flat washer
nut:   I forgot to look at this, but think it's 5/8 or 11/16 std hex nut...

Besides having HP and PSI confused, I think you may be 'over thinking' this problem..  Smiley     I'd think with any HVLP gun, you could spray this primer or just about any paint) with your compressor..

they do have a GM part number, and I recall seeing them around that time frame, but not on '69's..

2024  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: fw wheels abd trim rings on: July 29, 2012, 11:21:26 AM
If there was a *recall*.. I'd love to see some documentation!    GM sold the 4 clips throughout the entire *life* of the Rallye wheels (on Corvettes thru '77), and the Corvette trims were larger / heavier than the smaller trims for the 6 or 7 inch wheels, and had the SAME four clips...  let's see some info on such a recall .. if there was one...

I think '63 was the first year for the aluminum powerglide; I know for fact the '64 PG was aluminum; as I recall removing one from a '64 Impala convertible I once owned; then installed the 283 engine a Henry J, and sold the PG...
