16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Installing Exhaust System on: November 22, 2013, 02:07:17 PM
1967 SS/SS 350.  I will be installing D&R Classics 2-1/4" exhaust kit and have some questions and looking for any tips to make the job go smoother.   

First off, are hand tools (and a torque wrench) enough or do I need air tools?  I noticed the in/lbs torque specs in the AIM.

According to the 67 AIM, the tailpipe hanger bolts were threaded into the coupe frame with riv nuts.  Do I need them?  Heartbeat city has some listed but for the LH side only.  My current set up does not have them.  Both hangers were threaded directly into the frame with screws (pictured) but no riv nuts.  I know the exhaust system has been replaced in the past by the previous owner, but I believe the tailpipe hangers and screws are originals.  Here are some pics if anyone can verify if they are originals.

Tailpipe hanger screws:



Tailpipe hangers:
pass side


drivers side:



 The original muffler hangers and screws were missing when I removed the exhaust system currently installed.  I am sure this bracket is wrong?  Also looking for the correct location of the muffler hangers, and type of screws if anyone has any.  Here are where mine were mounted

First question, are you talking about '67?  If so there should just be 2 plastic square Nut-serts on top.  They simply snap into the Body panel (should be 2 square holes, about 3/8 in.).  At the bottom there should be 2 rubber bumpers, also just snap into holes already in the panel(maybe 1/4 in. round).  Here's a pic.;


That is how mine is set up, but it almost seems the license lamp bracket causes it to catch the plate when tightening it and bends the top portion of the plate and frame

Just installed my rear license plate after installing a new gas tank and got to wondering if there is suppose to be a bracket back there.  My rear plate and frame has always been bent from tightening the screws to secure it.

Thanks JohnZ. 

Could this be why the pedal doesn't lever or spring back?😠

Do you know if they provide the inserts that fit in the  head pipes that the donut packing gasket fits around?
this what you are looking for?

Know exactly what you need and order from RockAuto.com.  They are the cheapest from what I remember...

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

23  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
28  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?
30  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?
