How much free play do you have at the pedal. You can put a tape measure tip on the floor and push lightly with your fingers on the pedal pad to see how far the pedal travels before you feel resistance. The spec is about 1" of free travel.

Check out the reflection in the paint. I think it looks cool.

Here are some more.






I have had it for a few weeks and I like it a lot!  Grin

363  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Proper Painting of Underside of Cowl Induciton Hood on: June 21, 2009, 06:15:11 AM
if you set your hood on a pair of saw horses you will see the part he is talking about is the "sides" of the hood. There is an area where the spot welds can be seen from the side. The bottom of that edge is sharp from the sheet metal being cut there before the hood was formed and all of that part got paint. it will be a vertical surface. the underside of the hood was not masked so it is possible to get some small amount of overspray past the edge of the outside.

364  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: New tall bumpers guards, they donīt fit! on: June 16, 2009, 11:25:43 AM
I know the repro rear tall guards for '69 were a very poor fit. The repro weight was heavier, the finish was better and they were much more smooth as compared to NOS GM parts BUT the fit against the GM bumper was totaly unacceptable. I suspect they were formed wrong after they were notched if that makes sense.

I sent them back and bought GM NOS Smiley Smiley Smiley

Aaron,
If I am seeing this right, you should not have a problem.

If we are talking about the backdrive linkage that needs to be removed so the headers fit then this is no big deal. The backdrive links unbolt from the column and the frame with 3 bolts and 2 C-Clips. You can hold the column tab up in place (wire?) and deal separately with the backup lights in several possible remedies. I had to do this for the Hooker Super Comps when I ran them.

I have since gone back to cast iron manifolds now and reinstalled the backdrive links. No fuss, no cutting anything.  Smiley My steering column lock was already disabled by removing the star wheel at the snap ring so maybe that would help?

These show it pretty well. The color looks to match up pretty well with frost green body color especially with the rosewood custom interior pieces.

367  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: medium green interior, dark green dash pad? on: June 11, 2009, 05:08:42 PM
The pillar post mouldings were medium green. The dash pad was most probably medium green but it has been so long since I saw it that my memory may be a little fuzzy. The dash pad went straight to the trash can long ago. I still have a few medium green pieces kicking around in a box in the garage. I know I have some decent pix I could post later if needed that I collected from other complete medium green cars.

My car came originaly medium green comfortweave deluxe interior. It had been dyed back in the '70's before I owned it and the seats had been swapped out for black standard ones. NOT a pretty color I guess. Wink It was a very rare color for a good reason.

368  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Starter for 621 Bellhousing on: June 10, 2009, 04:11:28 AM
You will need a staggered bolt pattern nose cone starter. Don't say "327" engine to the parts counter guy or you will get the inline bolt pattern nose cone and it will not bolt up or work. Try asking for a 350 Corvette starter. Many 350 engines were equipped with the larger flywheel/bellhousing setup. You have to use a starter that has the nose cone that matches the bigger setup.

369  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Points Gap and Dwell Setting for 302 Engine on: June 08, 2009, 07:08:59 PM
.019" is the setting. The 30° or .019" is for most all of the single points distributors that I have worked on.

You can stillget R12 so just bite the bullet and get you some. The blends are more trouble than they are worth. You will not be able to top off the system if it leaks and finding a servce company that will have the refrigerant on hand and the tools for the job will be problematic.

Bottom line - do a full conversion or buy a case of R12 and hand it to a qualified technician. Smiley

371  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Cowl Induction Hood for 69 Camaro on: June 04, 2009, 01:43:01 AM
A GM hood will have a angled notch at the rear of the side view that looks like this. A repro notch looks more squared off. You want to see the green and white part number sticker on the GM part.



The little round hood bumper cups on the underside are different on a repro as well The GM will have 3 spot welds per cup holding them on while the repros I have seen have 4 spot welds per cup. One last detail - the GM hoods will fit right.

Here's where one of them went. It is headed to my garage tomorrow afternoon.   Cool

George Zapora of GM Canada can provide you with a GM Camaro model/year info packet even if your car is not in the Canadian Database. It will not be specific to your particular car details but it is informative. I just got mine from him recently. I think it was less than $50. He charged me a small fee for research as my car did not come up in the GM Canada Database. He sends out the Camaro year model GM info packet either way.  Smiley

Factory mistake or not, I might be inclined to get a new sticker if I was in your shoes.

Once this happened to me - The headliner ear muffs (side pieces - cardboard) have steel retaining clips that can squeek on small bumps. I had to pull the passenger side headliner side piece off to find it.  Angry
