601  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Idler Arm for 67 on: March 26, 2011, 11:54:26 AM
 Forgot to add, I know the picture don't look the same, but he explains that in his description.
602  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Correct Idler Arm for 67 on: March 26, 2011, 11:51:03 AM
  For anybody out there looking for a CORRECT Idler Arm for a 67, this one is correct.  As some of you may know, most of them out there don't match up correctly.  I just received one of these, and it matches up perfectly to my old one.  Little more expensive, but if you want it right.
603  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: "Pink" Connecting Rods on: March 04, 2011, 10:48:21 PM
I am having a very reputable business build my engine, I was just asking about the "Pink" rods because I'm planning to have my stock rods magnafluxed and shot peened.(and new ARP bolts)  He said all "Pink" rods he has seen didn't look to be any different than stock ones.  I told him what I had heard, he said that seemed logical.  We are building the original 327 basically to L-79 specs., but balanced and a little "massaging the heads, and a little more modern Comp Cam grind.  Using a 378260 Forged Crank , 3782461 "Fuelie" heads, and an original *610 Intake.  Even a correct Z Water Outlet, at first glance this engine will look exactly like a 302.  We are expecting around 375 hp..
604  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / "Pink" Connecting Rods on: March 04, 2011, 04:49:26 AM
  I have recently learned, I don't remember where, that the only difference with the "Pink" Connecting Rods that were so popular "Back in the Day", was that they were Shot Peened and Magnafluxed at the factory.   And that the "pink" dot was dabbed on to confirm this.  Can anyone here confirm or disprove this theory? 
605  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Did Interior Panels have Date codes? on: January 23, 2011, 11:47:53 PM
 I am replacing my Interior Door Panels (bottom edges are very ragged), I was looking at the back of the original Door panels and Rear 1/4 panels and I see what looks like Date codes.  And they match up with other Date codes I have found(weeks 43 and 44)on the car.  I am going to try to post pics..   I also found what looks like part #'s :  7639331 LF on Drivers panel, and 7639330 R? on Pass. panel.  I Did not find such a # on the 1/4 panels.  Have you seen this before?
606  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Tie rod sleeve and bolts/nuts on: January 20, 2011, 12:21:19 AM
I used to be a member of United States Camaro Club back through the 90's, as a member I received bi-monthly Camaro Enthusiast magazine.  I have saved most of these mags..   May-June '93  Vol. 10 Issue3 has an article on '69 Suspension Details with color pics..  Center Link, Pitman Arm, Tie Rods, and Idler Arm were natural cast.  The Tie Rod Adjusting Sleeves as well as the Clamps were also Natural finish.  They don't state finish color of the bolts & nuts but they appear natural.
607  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: First Gen. Z/28 options on: January 15, 2011, 01:30:18 PM
Back to the original question.  I think you're getting the question backwards.  The Conv. and the Coupe started with 2 different Model #'s,  you would be ordering the Z/28 option on a Convertible.
608  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Early Build 08D 67 Camaro on EBay on: January 12, 2011, 03:37:16 PM
  My 11A  LOS build has the 2 nd. style Fuel Gauge, and it was built only 9 weeks after this gold one.
609  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Early Build 08D 67 Camaro on EBay on: January 10, 2011, 03:15:31 PM
 My car is 11A build. All #'s I have found match, including both partial Vins., and many Body panel date codes(weeks 42 to 44).   It has the early Sub-frame with no Tie-down holes and J-clips for rear Bumper bracket bolt.  It has the metal Bucket Seat back panels.  This 8D build probably has first design Trunk Lid, mine is the Mid design.  Nice car !
610  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Early Build 08D 67 Camaro on EBay on: January 06, 2011, 11:19:19 PM
  According to my Decoding from the Cowl Tag;  Trim 709 Z it should have Bucket Seats (easy fix)  also G-G PAINT it should not have a Vinyl Roof also a fairly easy fix.  Rest of car looks fairly solid.
611  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Early Build 08D 67 Camaro on EBay on: January 06, 2011, 11:12:01 PM
  There's an EARLY build (08D) on EBay.
612  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct steering box finish on: December 23, 2010, 11:38:40 PM
 I have used Martin Senour TECnique Iron Cast #7250.  I forget who suggested it, but I believe it was on here.  Works great, looks great, it is a flat or semi-gloss finish so it's not too glossy.  It's available at NAPA in a big 15 oz. spray can for 'I believe' about $8.99.  FYI - the top cover, and the round disc in the end should remain natural aluminum color.
613  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Advice on interior Restoration on: December 23, 2010, 03:05:26 AM
  I am replacing my Door Panels and rear Side Panels, corners and edges are curled and loose.  But the Trim pieces are all good.  It looks as if the trim was laminated to the Vinyl at the factory.  What would be a good strong glue to glue these on?   Would headliner glue work?
614  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67-68-69 hoods on: December 15, 2010, 11:06:47 PM
phil_  What was the build week of your car?  The 2 digit code on the hood is build week.  From what I have found, the body panel date code should be 1 to 3 weeks before the car build date.  The link above hood build date is week 43, my car is an 11 A (66) build date and as near as I can figure that is week 45.  All body panel date codes I have found are 42 to 44.
615  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 396 radiator cap on: December 15, 2010, 02:02:58 AM
  Can someone post a pic. of a correct RC 15 Radiator cap?  As stated earlier on this post I am seeing many different versions.  I'm assuming a correct cap should #1 be stainless, and #2 have Big ears.  Should it have raised letters"NEVER OPEN HOT" or recess stamped letters "TURN TIGHT" and "REMOVE SLOWLY"?   I am even seeing caps claiming to be NOS both ways.  What is correct?
