1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: CRG etiquette concerning parts on E Bay on: March 10, 2014, 01:53:54 PM
HBC is usually more expensive for the same parts that can be purchased elsewhere. Example: BB valve covers are way over priced when compared to the exact same ones sold by Crane Corvettes (both eBay pricing). Do your shopping.
  Unless they (HBC or anyone else for that matter) have a truly one of a kind, hard to impossible to find part that you must have, keep looking.
Also, do not believe an item sold for XYZ usage is actually correct. Many times it isn't. As other have said here, post the URL for review.

Mike
For an example about HBC pricing.....for some time now, I have been watching a NOS Y55 battery on HBC with a price of $1650.00.  I recently found and bought one identical to the HBC battery for a fraction of their price.  Like Mike said, keep looking and keep doing your shopping.  Also, as Chick stated, keep doing your research.  You may be new to the hobby but one of the keys is to continually research, research, research.  Don't ever quit looking for parts as well as information and if you still have questions, just get on here and ask.

Danny....I understand your anxiety....seven years ago on March 1, I had surgery for late stage prostate cancer.  I still have some anxiety, even today, but I have managed to live an eventful life.  As a brother in the hobby and also as a brother in cancer survival, I hope and pray that you will also conquer and survive your cancer to live a long, eventful life.  Good luck and God bless you and yours.

This Master Parts Catalog mentioned is for the Camaro only.  I do have a later Catalog for Corvettes but I will have to locate it ........will check back in later.

I have a Camaro Master Parts Catalog No. 691A dated July 1969.  #3901708 shows as.......1969/ALL WITH 15 IN WHEEL.  There is no mention of #9796696 at all.

Hey guys, whats new?...it's been a while since I last posted. Been out sick for the past few months or so with bronchitis and then pneumonia and back to bronchitis again and finally getting to the point of wanting to mess with my computers again. I hope everybody had a good Christmas and New Years, mine was in bed. Now I have some catching up to do so bare with me. I gotta do a search to see where I left off and I'll pick up from there. Feels great to breath again.
Glad to see that you are feeling better.  I know how you feel....I came down with the "Whooping Cough" the first weekend in October and I still have some side effects.  When I went through the bad coughing phase, I thought I would never get well again.

Don't know about a 1969 but my 1968 Z28 had intake manifold bolts like that.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: speedo clips and location on: January 10, 2014, 02:34:17 PM
Does anyone have an installed photo of the speedo clip that's located on the passenger side of the trans tunnel? I need the precise location (measured off the trans tunnel seam?) and the orientation (speedo cable captured / clamped below the drilled hole or above the hole?). Thanks.  
Hi Lloyd, just posted this pic on team Camaro for Mike as he is asking the same question. This pic gives some idea but will check my dimensions on my car today and post. This pic is off a good friends 68Z survivor. Unmolested two owner local car. If memory serves me well I believe both his and mine were approximately 4" back from the unibody seam.
My 1968 measurement is appx 4 to 4.25 from the seam and the clip orientation is the same as the one chick has shown.  If you have the transmission crossmember installed, it is 4.5 from the crossmember to the clip hole.

The number is probably 50, which is the production sequence number.  Don't know about Lloyd's but my 1968 has the marking in the same area.  Mine is the number 22. This number also appears on the inside of the front valence panel and also on the back side of my spare tire.

Here is a photo of my firewall.....

That is a GREAT pic Jerry!!!

69 AIM UPC-6, sheet C6 + JohnZ's car + 68 Magazine pic equals the heat riser goes the other way.



What magazine was the picture in?  Also, what is the month and year of the magazine?
Went back and checked some notes with that photo....was quoting from memory before...and the notes said that it was from some prior post by Jerry M. that originally came from the GM archives.  I saved it because it was a very clear underhood photo of a 1968 Z28 and that is what I own.

Here is a magazine photo of a 1968 Z28 test vehicle and you can see the heat riser.

Here is a photo of my 1968 Z28 07C original distributor.  You can compare and decide on the number.

FYI....There are two different searches when you request a part number....normally you give them a part number and they will search to see if they have it in stock or if  it is currently not discontinued, they will order it for you.  There is another search where they will query all the other GM dealers for the part number to see if they have in stock....normally they will not do this for you as it is time consuming and they do not want their parts guys taking up this additional time.  If your are on good terms with a local parts guy, you might get this done for you if you ask.

That has been my experience anyway.
