Do you know if they provide the inserts that fit in the  head pipes that the donut packing gasket fits around?

Here is their exhaust catalog. The donuts are shown but don't know what I am looking for in the inserts. Sorry...

17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 67 Accelerator Pedal Rod Support on: August 30, 2013, 01:02:33 PM
Is there anything inside the accelerator pedal rod support itself that can wear out or needs replacing other than the two plastic bushings?  Should I replace the entire pedal rod support? 

My pedal is low and does not seem to engage the throttle arm at all.  It is at the floor and will need adjusting, but since I need to order the bushings, pedal spring, and pedal to rod pin since they are missing, I would like to get it all at once.

Thanks,

Joe

I bought my exhaust system from D&R as well and noticed the two sizes offered.  I bought the 2-1/4" system for my 69 SS and it fit fine. 

Thanks for the input. From the picture it looks like the same system. I am going to go for the larger system as well then.

Hey guys,

I will be buying an exhaust system kit through D&R for my 67rs/ss and was curious to see if anyone knows if their 2-1/4" kit (z00086-2) listed for a 67/68 z28 will fit my ss350 in the stock mounting locations with their stock hangers and hardware.

I know they have a 2" system (z00086) listed for a 67/68 but was hoping the bigger system would fit with no modifications???

I plan on calling and asking D&R the same question but wanted to see if anyone here has first hand knowledge before I call...

Had that problem when I stored my car at my moms house while I bought my home (she kept her dog food in her garage). I used the dryer sheets as well as slivers of Irish spring bar soap placed through out the interior. Suckers never came back and smelled so fresh

Thanks guys
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Throttle arm attachment? on: July 12, 2013, 10:35:48 PM
I was cleaning up the engine compartment when the throttle arm came loose.

Looks like the pedal rod presses into the the half circle shaped hole but is there a pin or clip that secures it and prevents it from slipping out? 

Checked the AIM but didn't see anything that shows a retainer or clip of some sort...

Maybe someone was color blind?
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 exhaust system questions on: July 06, 2013, 05:12:36 PM
Your guys statements answered a lot of my questions, thanks.

So is Gardners Exhaust still considered the most correct for restoration/originality purposes?

25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 67 exhaust system questions on: July 05, 2013, 11:10:20 PM
Tried researching exhaust systems for my 67 (L48 01C) since I need to replace mine soon and have a few questions.

what were the original exhaust components (pipes, muffler, resonators) made of?  aluminum or stainless steel?

What were the purpose of the resonators?  Did they make the system louder or quieter?  Where were they placed within the system?

No chambered exhaust option for 67 correct?

That's the horn relay. The 3 light relays should be under the drivers fender bolted to a bracket

I have been looking for a correct air filter assembly for my 67 and asked HBC how many tubes are on the underside of the base (my application requires 2 tubes) and if they could you provide the dimensions and this is his reply:

Hello Sir,
There are no tubes on the bottom as 1967 Camaro used valve covers without provisions for hoses or tubes. The back of the engine block in 1967 has a road draft tube. I can't measure the parts for hypothetical applications as it is too time consuming and the parts are wrapped in their packages from the original manufacturer. You can see the description gives you the GM number that this unit replaces and it is an exact quality reproduction.

Thank you,
Jim

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Is this tear is vent window rubber fixable? on: June 20, 2013, 09:59:48 PM
A dab of 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive (black) should hold it together - that stuff sticks to anything, great bond when it cures out. I patched my door window weatherstrip on the Z11 (top corner of windshield when it dry rotted and fell off, still there after 10 years or better.

Regards,
Steve

Great idea! Never thought of that 3M stuff. Will give it a try

I have had these since vent seals since buying my car back in '98.  The previous owner bought them to replace the current ones on the car now.

As I was taking something off the shelf in my garage it hooked itself on to this vent rubber and caused about a 1/2" tear to the top corner.

Is this still useable and/or repairable?  I would want to install them only to find out they will leak water or air later on

Also, is any one able to tell if this is NOS or an aftermarket replacement?

Don't know if my antenna is original to my 67 but here are a couple pics of my AM rear antenna tip and base
