1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 Belgium Factory Assembled Camaro on: December 15, 2014, 02:11:06 PM
Question to anyone that knows, is there a preformed plate for the tunnel to make room for the Hurst 4 speed shifter linkage?  Any help is appreciated.  Also, anyone interested, has original Belgium title and import documents.
Sten.....The original factory shifter and linkage for the 1968 Camaro was the Muncie.  The Hurst shifter and linkage was factory installed in the 1969 Camaro.  If you want a Hurst shifter and linkage for the 1968, you need to purchase the Competition Plus aftermarket version and here is a link to the Hurst site displaying the shifter and installation kit for the Camaro.......

Here is a link to the installation instructions, for your reference, that will display all the parts and numbers included in the kit.....

I think I've seen in a Haynes manual that the readings should be.....20 ft/lbs on the outer and 30 ft/lbs on the inner.

Depends on a lot of things.  The more popular a power plant, the faster they went through them.  Rare combinations are going to see more variation from time an engine was built to the time it was installed.  

For an example of an extended 68 07C Z has an engine build date of 06-19.

Yup....Internet Explorer calls it "refresh".....Firefox calls it "Reload Page".

Buy with confidence!! How do the ebay ads have text that runs all over itself like that? It's annoying.
Just reload the page and all the stacking will clear up.

According to the '68 AIM, #3915077 is the transmission for L34, L35, & L48 engines.

Haven't cleaned my car belts with this but have used it on my tow truck belts......Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Tub and Tile Cleaner.  Don't have to degrease, it will do that for you....just spray on, let it absorb into the belt and scrub with a plastic bristle brush.  After cleaning, wipe down with paper towels and then rinse in warm water.  May have to repeat, but it will be worth the effort.  My truck belts looked like new when I finished.

Alternator is mounted in the smog pump mounting bracket.  Huh
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 19, 2014, 07:16:58 PM
There is a split spacer on AMK that states that it fits 69-73 GM Smog Pumps.  There is no GM part number associated with it but the specs are.....

.39 ID x .51 Length x .49 OD

Might find someone that has an original and get them to check to see if theirs matches the specs on this one.

As far as these car being sequentially, I thought John Z. said cars that required more labor are spaced out so the production crew have more time to do the extra work. If I'm not mistaken  convertibles require more labor. Terry
I believe the body numbers were assigned when the order was received....they could schedule the numbers in any order they preferred.

Here is an alternative for comparison....  You might want to search around the internet for "complete camaro body shell" and read up on the various sites that will build you a shell.  One of them found will even build you a complete rolling shell for $22,000.00.

Rather than type it out, I'm attaching Lars Grimsrud's excellent paper on how to install a Chevy V-8 distributor; follow the instructions and you'll have it running in no time.
Good write up on "walking the distributor rotor".....I learned this many years ago by accident and never had to use a long screwdriver to index the oil pump shaft thereafter.  Like Lars said, you can walk that rotor around faster than you can find a long screwdriver.  The rest of the article was very well written and informative.  Have never seen this before but I'm sure going to save it for future reference and sharing.

My July 1969 parts book says the part number was 3914863 and in a 1972 parts book the 3931449 has superseded the 3914863.

BTW.....right now GM Parts Direct has one for sale at $14.27 plus shipping.  Looks the same to me.

Danny....this is the usual layout for the plug wires.  The wires are usually cut to length for this layout.  You don't necessarily have to have the #1 plug wire in the position shown.....the #1 plug wire can be anywhere as long as the same firing order is followed, as shown, and the rotor is aimed at the #1 plug wire (at top dead center on the compression stroke)...and also as long as the wires reach the cap slots.  Hope this is not confusing.
