here`s a pic of the engine bay, needs some smog and the factory chambered back on it and the hood hinges de-chromed. anybody know if de-chroming is possible ? also wondering if anybody can install new ends on my factory spring ring battery cables ?

Take your hinges to a local plating/chrome shop, ask them to remove the chrome and return to you.   I'd suggest a good degreasing and removing the springs first.. hopefully they aren't chromed?

Red interior original camaros are pretty rare, esp with white/silver exterior.  Personally, my favor car color combo is white w/red interior...  I think the late 60's was a 'black interior on performance cars' period.. or maybe it's still that way?  I know when I first saw my orange/black car and peeked in and saw the orange/black houndstooth.. my first thought was..  YUK..  Smiley    but it grew on me.. Smiley  and I purchased it.. (traded a Marina blue / black interior Z28 for it..).

979  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: double hump heads on: December 22, 2013, 11:22:01 PM
There were two different HP 'double hump' heads.   Some were machined for 1.94" intake valve sizes, and were used on the 295/300 hp 327/350 engines, and others were machined for 2.02" intake valve sizes, and were used on the 350 hp engines (327s' used in Corvettes for 1967)...   The casting numbers and external appearances of these heads were identical as installed, and all were called 'double hump' heads for the casting marks on the ends.
PS.  Actually for torquey street engines, the smaller valve head is preferable (IMO)...  the large valve sizes are only beneficial at very high rpms and high horsepower.

"Best color" , not mine but we all have our favorites. It's on my watch list, I am some what surprised it is bid higher than the silver unrestored Z that one of our fellow CRG members purchased. I am not sure I would attribute that to color, but who knows what a couple of bidders are interested in one month to the next.
I thought I saw this car on ebay last year, but I see a lot of orange with the black vinyl top so I may be mistaken. The odd colors are easier for me to remember...
l

Hmmmmm..  maybe you are partially color deficient?       Smiley Smiley       and WTH do you mean by 'odd colors'??   Smiley
Is the '69 Camaro called the 'Hugger' or not?   Are there any other colors than 'Hugger Orange'..  with 'hugger' in the color name?  Smiley
It HUGS me...    very well.   *G*

.... 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?
986  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.
Regards
Morris
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...
987  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
988  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...  

http://www.ebay.com/itm/69-72-Chevy-BB-4Spd-Muncie-Reverse-Lock-Out-Linkage-Set-/390337793522?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year%3A1969%7CModel%3ACamaro&hash=item5ae1f20df2&vxp=mtr

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.

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.
