When you're paying for 2 or 3 guys, week after week, month after month..    labor cost can really mount up...
IMO..   that body is not worth repairing...  there are better alternatives.

I forgot why did you have to do that? did your factory tach go out?

I did that in 1976,when I first bought the car because thefactoy tach was so'sloppy'...  I sent the factory tach off for rebuilding (a long time ago), and as part of my 'returning to original' activites, I have put back all the original parts.

I don't plan to run my engine to 8 grand anymore...if I can help it..  Smiley    I'll probably be puttering around in it once it goes back on the road.

Thanks Jon, I'll take a look at the later catalog.. Smiley

Jano, the Sun Super Tach fit lots better in the round areas of the '67 dash, than it did in my '69.  I had to cut out the clear portion of the 'square surround' in the '69 dash cluster...

Re your coil spring question:    Which spring that was used is a function of 'weight', which boils down to the option weights.

My '69 Z28 -RS, with cowl hood, console, deluxe interior/exterior trim also has the EY springs...  There's a table under the coil spring section in the CRG data which provides the formulas to determine what is correct for each car/option combination.

you're right...   another brain fart from an old guy..   I *think* the right thing, but my keyboard doesn't always put it out correctly..  Smiley

So would your back lite have been replaced at one point? (since it is dated march, and you say your car came off the line in February)

Nope. The guys at the glass plant jumped the gun to the March logo by a couple of days.

OR.. maybe John..  your car got built/finished late?   Do you know the date of production based on your VIN?  or from GM docs?   It *could be* that even with a 02D scheduled week, your car wasn't built until the early days of March...

I don't think the aftermarket for this part has *anything* correct....   Sad

Sure Jon, It's an SST-802  photos below...
I used this unit in my Henry J for a short period, then in my '69 Z28 for 4 yrs...  it's been resting since 1980, but it does work well.. Smiley

That's a great story, and a great looking car.  Smiley   I'm glad it's back where it belongs!

Re posting pix:
1)  There's a limit to the kb size for each photo, and for each posting (200kkb per image,and 500 kb/post).
2)  If you will download a software product called 'Light Image RESIZER' (free for personal use), it allows custom downsizing and uses algorithms that retain a great majority of the information.

Danny,   

re your question on timing set:  size and dimension wise, and teeth numbers, etc..   all the old small block chevys are the same.

you should pull your valve covers and watch what the number 1 and 6 cyl  valves do as you turn the motor... and see the differences...  as you rotate thru two turns of the crankshaft.

Kurt,

Apparently you can.  I just made a post, then went in and deleted it, but perhaps it works like the modify; you can only modify/delete for a limited period of time, perhaps until someone else replies to it??

Jon,

Thanks..  I had to dig out the part from my shelves, and you are right about the model, 535AH, and based on your information, this one was made in August of 73.    I think I'd looked at the S8 and read it as '68 previously.. Smiley     I have this one, and a Sun 8K super tach (dated 11-68), and a 'new' set of Dykes rings for a 30 over 302 ; purchased from the Crank Shaft Company in '71 or 72..   bagged never used.   Great for high rpm racing if anyone can use them.   I have no plans to ever use any of these parts.

74  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Gauges / Instrumentation (Stewart Warner, etc) on: September 01, 2014, 10:19:34 PM
I have the black and white racing fuel gauge. The in dash gauge was replaced with a SUN Tac (vintage now) Might also have the oil pressure. Always wondered about the bigger size--never see them.

sometime in late '71 or early '72, I purchased a complete new set of the 2-5/8" racing gauges for my '53 Henry J.   I love those large gauges...  they are so easy to read!   Those gauges went with the J when I sold it in the 'late 90's.   I had a bored '67 302 race engine with Muncie M21 in that car..   42 Ford straight axle front split wishbone, with '57 Chevy rear end sprung on quarter elliptic springs with split Ford wishbone for locating the rear... Smiley

I still have the larger SW 9K mechanical tach... which I think has a '68 date stamped on the back, but didn't see it in the catalog that Jon posted..?   Photo posted here..

75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Project car on: September 01, 2014, 11:32:36 AM
It's definitely a project car, and it 'looks' like an AZ desert car.. most of the metal appears solid.

Questions you will need to answer:
1.  Is the car still in the states?  it appears to be in the photos..
2.  Are you looking for a 'project car' that needs a restoration?  This one certainly does, and will need a LOT of parts.
3.  If you do not have capability to do the restoration yourself, wouldn't it be better/(cheaper?) to buy a car that doesn't need so much work and parts?
4.  Wouldn't it be less expensive to ship in a complete car (needing no parts?) than to buy a body, ship it.. (probably same costs as shipping a complete running car?).. and then to have to pay shipping/duties on every part you buy?

I'm not in the Netherlands, so I'm not totally up on all the shipping details, but I do know it's expensive to ship across the pond, and most Camaro parts you'd be needing would originate here in the states..
