Maybe the windshield took a head shot at accident. And the hand slipped off wheel and punched the gauges?... D
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Horn Button Repair, R & R Tricks on: January 27, 2015, 10:44:16 PM
Can anybody do a little run thru with me as I have not pulled a steering wheel in 20 years. The horn button is frozen and will not depress. It is a N34 wheel. Disconnect battery? How does the cap come off. Pry it up with a rubber tipped tool, or carefully with screwdriver? Then I think I remember a trick of backing off the nut until it is at the end of it's threads, then give it a good whack with a single jack? Which if I remember helps pop loose the wheel. Then what? Interior pic's would be great..... Danny

This is a '68 Z/28 with DZ block in it cause it's a March car. SWEET... NOT! I see a few things that could be correct, and a few that are not. What say yawl? Pretty easy the way it is to check ALL hidden VIN's.... Danny

Jon, I was standing there looking at the duct TODAY. I was going to buy it. That was me talking to Robert as HE was talking to you. Once I found out it was YOU on the phone, I of course backed off pushing my way for it. Can you imagine the guy buys a 1970 Z/28, and the duct is sitting in the car. You got yourself a nice original piece. GREAT original condition. I seen the price exchange. Sell it to me for a couple hundred more? Ok, $500 more... ha ha
 I went back today to try to catch you. But now I see you were long gone on Sat. And your name was not on the info sheet cause you were under another guys spot and sharing. And I guess Charlie L. did not show. So the guys parked in his spots. He was smart. And you are smart to have no cell phone. So bottom line... the stars did not align my Camaro friend..

  I seen a guy with 4 T-3 headlights with the vertical lines for first gen, but they were lightly clouded. And probably ready to let go when plugged in, so I passed. Ok, nap time... Danny

I wound my last 302 to 7,500, and yes it was bad ass. Felt like the dash was going to fall in my lap. But this car sat 25 years, and I am just glad to be able to drive it. The last thing I wanna do is launch this engine and have no ride. And then a 10K rebuild ahead of me. So for now it's fine. .. D

Well I am back at the hotel. WHAT A DAY!! I think I walked nearly the whole thing before 5pm. ALOT of stuff but nothing off my list. There wasn't a a lot of stuff or classic muscle cars. I went in all the buildings but I think there may have been a couple on the far side I didn't get to. According to what everybody said, it has gotten even bigger. So I guess I did good. There must have been 100 or more trim rings, NO 15 X 6, no linkage worth a crap, no mats, no distributors except for on obvious re-stamp. Anyway, ya don't need a list of what I didn't see. It was a lot of fun, but a lot of work for no pay off. And to top it off, I wrote down J52 instead of L52, so I didn't get to meet Jon Mello.  Sad That pissed me off the most. I went to the info booth and they couldn't find his name on the list anywhere. And I have no access to the internet from my POS phone. Did I mention it was a lot of work?? It has been a 17hour day in the freezing 41 degree weather. NO SUN!!.. I gotta sleep ... D

 PS I know 41 isn't cold compared to where some of you live. But this is CALI.. So don't post telling me the temp where you live ...  Smiley Smiley

Well guys, I am here in Turlock. Just had some grub with the guys and getting ready to shut it down for the night. Got a free entry pass, and don't have to pay parking. So that's cool! I will do my best on the parts requests. I will be going back Sunday for ahalf day, and I will check my messages at about 6am CA time to see if there is anymore requests.... D

Bryon, Thanx, looking forward to it.. b Grin

 Pete, I will keep an eye out. But before I pluck down 12 or 15 HUNDRED dollars!!... I better know for sure it's not a re-stamp. OR, get the sellers contact info and you can call him and discuss. Then I can go back and pick it up. We will see how it goes. I usually tell the seller I want his driver license number, and phone number in case I find out it is a bogus part. That usually makes them think..

 Jano, I am very familiar with that bolt. I will look for it. Just like mine in the picture... D

Just got back from the semi local Fosters Freeze Cruise-In. Happens every Thur. night from 6 to 8pm. Good selection of cars..
 So I was looking down several times at my tachometer just to see where it is when I take off. It is always it seems between 1500 and 2000. A lot of the time 1800. And ya ride the clutch a little off the line and off you go. Now when there is traffic and big trucks coming and I need to scoot, then it goes up substantially. Jumped on it a little tonight and took it to 4500. Sounds great. I have those valves set perfect. May never have to adjust them again  Smiley  They say 12,000 miles and I have only driven 2 or 300 miles in a couple months. I am at 55,420... TOO much fun.. D

Well I got a room for Friday and Saturday night. Heading to Turlock for the big Swap meet with a couple friends. Should be a good time. If you are a member of CRG and you are going, lets connect and BS a little.  I will be looking for a few items for myself. But if anyone has a request for any small pocket parts, LMK. I will be looking for NOS door stops and floor mats for Chick. And a few other items for other guys. I decided since it is SO BIG I am not going to lug a wagon or cart, just gonna walk it. I of course don't wanna look for giant rear-ends etc. BUT, I can get info from the seller and put you in contact with them as applicable. So if you have anything you need email it to me direct with your contact number.. Danny

I can say from recent experience, having to ride the clutch even with 3.73's. I can't imagine that ratio. From 20 MPH and up, they move out well, but under that look out, as they are dog's for sure. .. D
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I asked a Bowtie question and my post disappeared? on: January 19, 2015, 04:02:44 AM
Probably cause you mentioned about selling it. Can't post "for sale" parts here... D

George,
 The measurement from the bottom of the head, past the captured washer to the end of the threads = 1".  Looks to be right at exactly an inch... D

Are these above not Sept of '69?   Isn't K19 for 1969? What am I missing?... Danny

I used to have 20/10 vision, me and Chuck Yeager.. I would have made a great judge  Cheesy  But those days are gone, still no glasses at 54, but when light is low, need readers.
Also noticed some machine creasing, see picture.. D
