D & R is a no go...  Sad
Muffler, Dual Exhaust, Aluminized 67-73
Part Number: Z00096
Correct 67-73 cross-flow muffler made of aluminized steel
This muffler is temporarily unavailable
 
They have a stainless one that will look way to shiny and new. And besides, it's $250 delivered!

 Back to the drawing board. Any other suggestions?... D

Well Ricks have a muffler, but admit to it not being 100% correct. Camaro Central has one, but I don't know how correct it is... If somebody could tell me, that would be great. Cause they are ALOT cheaper than HB. I don't know if HB's is 100% correct either. However they have the best visual and measurements so far. Did a big search and found many pro-flow- and flow master and others... all incorrect of course. If you got a place I am open to suggestions... Plug me in  Grin... Danny

I want to get rid of my "Napa Auto Parts" light BLUE Plug wires and get a set of correct black reproduction. Is made in USA something to consider?
Price is with-in a few dollars.
 
"Bowtie Muscle Parts" says: Exact reproduction spark plug wire sets are manufactured to the original blueprint specifications. These sets are identical to the spark plug wires as they would have appeared on the vehicle when it shipped from the factory. They will look, fit and perform exactly as original.

"Heartbeat" says: Camaro spark plug wire set, dated 1-Q-68 for all 302, 307, 327, and 350 engines. These are high quality, assembly line correct reproductions of the original dated AC Delco spark plug wires. Our spark plug wires are a must if you plan on competing in any nationally judged car shows. These spark plug wires feature correct length, correct wire color, wire diameter, correct lettering, correct black 90 degree plug boots for small blocks applications as original. Made in the USA!

Also, is the transverse muffler that heartbeat sells good quality and fit? I can't find another company that makes one with that same approx. measurement of 24.5" X 10" X 4.25". And has the correct visual... Danny

Got Holley back. He cleaned corrosion in needle and seat. Re-jetted it, changed a couple springs, changed out white cam gear, bushed both sides of throttle rod, installed the Holley 125-500 PV protection front and back, changed butterflies and tested on his neighbor's '68. Called me and I went and picked it up. He spent hours and hours on it but only charged me $200. Now the throttle closes all the way and doesn't get hung up. I installed it and it runs great. Pumped it 3 or 4 times and fired it off. Choke works good and kicks right down after warm. Drove the car 200 miles and it is nice and tight. No rattles or noise. Sure can tell with only 55 thousand original miles. I reset the valves until there was a light drag at 26 in and out, but 27 would not slide in with same amount of force. Installed all new rocker arm bolts. It runs great with NO noise at all like the sewing machine sound you all were talking about. I was told by the Dist. rebuild guy that the back fire is because I did not set the initial at 18 degrees. I have it at 8. So Charlie is coming over today after work at 3:30 and we are going to drop it back in and set it up and see what happens. Maybe it will be fine at 15 or 16 or less. We will see.. She pulls pretty good with minimal throttle. What a kick in the butt it is to drive. You can watch the gas gauge go down on a long haul at 60 MPH. I installed an Auto Meter tach on top of the column. It is a little guy that fits up there nice and is out of the way. Now I can see where I am at. I am not over revving this engine by any means. I have not yet and don't want to. Nothing over 4 or 5, as I don't want any issues. My days of taking these engines to 7K RPMS are over for now. I don't have 10K for a rebuild Grin  Just wanna drive it and enjoy it.
 Another update, pictures and a video while driving coming soon. Thanx to all of you... Danny

Just got back. Things have I think, changed for the better. Parking is now $8. Adult to get in is $18, which includes swap meet, all buildings access, and the auto cross. I was there 5 hours!.. A ton of good stuff, but I just couldn't spend the money. Took me 2 hours to walk the swap meet alone. No cowl plenum stuff. Found 4 trim rings for $15. They are beat up, but so are mine. These are the correct 4 clip design. One is missing a couple clips. But they are all original 15 X 6 with one of the clips lined up directly at the valve stem notch, which is correct. Also a nice little craftsman set of 8 point sockets. That was on my list. A lot of nice cars. Only 2 '69 Z/28's. One Lemans, and the other Dusk. I walked up on a beautiful Hugger and as I was 25 feet away, it started and drove off. So I missed that one by just a couple minutes. Every thing was there from Mad Magazines to a 6 cylinder hemi from Italy and everything in between. I really enjoyed the big rig section indoors. Very nice '47 Peterbilt was my favorite.
 As far as this being the biggest in my area... the biggest is in Jan in Stanislaus County. That is the Turlock one. Acres and acres of parts. That takes a couple days to walk.
 So I got my trim ring. NOTE: If anybody has a need for a couple clips, LMK, and we can rob a couple off the one that already has one or two missing. Again, they are the 4 clip design... D

Hey Eddie,
  Sounds like you had a good time. I have not gone to this show in years. It is the last big show of the year and the weather for the next 8 to 10 days shows 70's and 80's  Grin Grin  I was just hoping to meet some CRG guy and talk shop. It has a lot of all the things you mentioned. And a "Vettes for Vet's Parade which is cool. I wanted to take my car but it's just not quite ready. They have about 2,500 cars and a nice indoor show also. Then the show and shine car corral for "for sale" cars, and the swap meet of course. And a separate building for JUST the low riders. Which I think is nice. I need a 15 X 6 trim ring and an original Rad Cap and the like. Not a lot of stuff. Should be a good time... D

Any members going to the Good Guys show this Saturday? I will be there looking at all the cars of course, and swap meet stuff. Wanna try to find a couple things for my car. LMK if you are going and maybe we can meet up. Also if somebody is looking for a small part, maybe I can keep my eyes out for it... Danny

Discovered my wiper motor works on both high and low. Just needed a little help to get it going. Now works great. It is a 5045441. But it has a green stamp on the side that looks like 122683. Is that the correct number? Does anybody know what that stamp indicates? Is it Julian Dating for Tuesday April 30th of '68 - shift 3? Cause that would line up well with car.  Danny
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Wiper Motor Application on: November 05, 2014, 04:15:16 PM
I have an '68 wiper motor & switch I want to list on TC... Can anyone tell me the application. Is it 1966 to 72? Is it El Camino, Firebird, Nova, Camaro?? You get the point...
Part #5045441 Type E 12V   Thanx.. Danny

I don't think you can see broach marks from that far away. And you shouldn't be able to see them that WELL through the paint, right?. And besides, they are not that consistent originally. That engine pad is a sprinkled sand dune of perfection, TOO perfect IMO. Lot's of repro as mentioned. Those door panels are junk! How can they even install something like that? Where could you even buy a panel that trashed? Isn't the Trans VIN missing some numbers? I don't know, I am learning as the years go by, but this thing scares me... Danny

Found out Am/FM radio works after all. But back speaker not sounding. I tried the knobs behind each front knob but no go. Is there another trick. I thought those back knobs were for tone/bass and front/rear fader. Maybe I better check connections underneath and in trunk. But was just wondering... Danny

What are those little baby screws on the top of the Holley near the horn rounding edge? There is some little white goop covering them. One on each side. Are they some sort of bowl adjustment. Do we touch those?... Danny
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: October 30, 2014, 04:26:35 PM
I have to find out how to tell FIRST. I also have some valve covers I cut out with a plasma cutter and those little cheapy tin keepers. But how do I tell?... Danny

I have one rocker arm locking nut staying loose, and doesn't feel right and snug like the rest. Would like to get a whole new set and start out fresh. I think they are 3/8ths X 24. If so, where do I get them? Danny
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: October 30, 2014, 01:06:22 PM
I was just thinking... Could this Cam have been changed in the past? Could I have Hydraulic Lifters? Guess I should have checked when I had the intake off eh.. I adjusted them as per JohnZ doing the cold 26 degree adjustment... Would that work if it was hydraulic?  Is that a good way to determine. I just didn't here that sewing machine sound when I had it running days ago. Danny
