91  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Questions about the installation of 1967 factory console gauges? on: March 21, 2012, 11:34:25 PM
Thanks for all the help guys.

2. Were the threads in the manifold OK?  Was a lot of thread sealant used?  Cross threaded?  The sensor doesn't have to be all the way down flush.  But the probe should be in the stream.  You can mark it now, back it out, and see how far it actually screwed in...

The threads should be ok.  I purchased this Edelbrock manifold new and installed a plug (careful not to cross thread) upon installation. 

I will check the sender to see if its in the coolant. 

I read not to use thread sealant on the sender because it gives an inaccurate reading.  I just used some anti-sieze to protect the manifold. 

 
92  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Questions about the installation of 1967 factory console gauges? on: March 20, 2012, 07:53:40 PM
I am finally getting around to installing my old factory gauges.  I decided to re-wiring my entire car (Factory Fit wiring from American Autowire) and just received everything I bought.  After looking through all the wiring, I have the following questions.    


 Question #1: Was the tachometer only powered by the wiring harness to the printed circuit board or will I need to run other wiring for the power, ground, and signal?


Question #2: Is my temperature sender supposed to be sticking up this much or is it not seated all the way?  I encountered some resistance when tightening it and didnít want to force anything but donít know if it is correctly installed.  

  


Question #3: Is there suppose to be a ground wire under the console to the floor/trans tunnel?  Under my console there is a piece of masking tape with writing on it stating to ďrun ground strap to bracketĒ.  Donít know if that is a factory note written or by one of the two previous owners.  If there is suppose to be one, what bracket does it connect to (seat belt, console bracket, ect)?


Question #4: Is the temperature sender wire built into another one of the harnesses I purchased or do I need to run a separate wire from the sender to the gauge?

Do you still have the original reusable brass fitting with the male insert?


Wish I did Mike, wish I did.  Especially after looking at the differences between the NOS vs repro lines.


Thanks
95  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: How to assemble oil line to block fitting? on: March 02, 2012, 08:23:59 PM
I don't use Teflon on brass fittings. Besides the compression is what makes the seal not the threads.

Got it.  Thanks
96  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: How to assemble oil line to block fitting? on: March 02, 2012, 08:09:59 PM
You have an extra nut and sleeve.

That makes more sense.

You recommend Teflon on the threads?

  Thanks for all the help!

I am sure this is a no brainer, but I cant seem to figure it out. 

Does the small brass sleeve get inserted into nut then both go into the coupling, then into the block? 

Then,

How does the oil line assemble into the block fitting?  Do I need to cut the sleeve that is attached to the line and insert that into the loose brass sleeve?

Disgusting...

Why "hoard" them and just let them rot like that!
99  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Questions about AC Delco Distributor caps and rotors on: February 11, 2012, 04:57:21 PM
I will be buying some tune-up parts for my 67 350 (original engine) and was wondering the difference between AC Delco parts.  They have listed on Rock Auto and the AC Delco website parts catalog two different p/n's for both a cap and rotor. 

Caps listed: D308R vs C349

and

Rotors listed: C435 vs D426R

Anyone know what the differences are?  I want to make sure I get the correct parts the first time.  Thanks...

Great story.  Had you been in contact with him over the years?

Thanks guys. 
102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 1967 350 Oil Filter: Canister vs. Spin-On on: January 16, 2012, 10:42:18 PM
My engine currently has the spin-on type filter with adapter.  I know my 350 originally had the canister type, and have been considering switching back to the canister by next oil change. 

I have only ever changed oil using a spin-on filter on all my cars.  What are the advantages and disadvantages between the two other than convenience?

If I do consider switching back over to the canister filter, is there anything else I have not listed below that I would need?

oil bypass valve
bypass valve bolts (2)
canister
filter (AC PF-141 or equivalent)
gasket 


Anyone have pictures of all the parts I need for a 67 350 (in case I find them used I know what to look for)?  Thanks,

Joe
103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Is this the oil pressure line hole? on: January 09, 2012, 10:19:42 PM
Is this the oil pressure gauge line hole and grommet just above the plastic ducting and to the right of the steering column boot?  The reason I am unsure is because my car also has an open hole behind the accelerator pedal.

I enjoy seeing how the different parts evolve. Does your mirror's housing have a drain hole?


Yep, the drain hole is there. 

Beautiful car by the way IZRSSS!  Love the color...
105  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: L48'S WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE on: December 06, 2011, 10:32:54 PM
I remember your car from last month's cover page. Love the '67 RS/SS!

If you have a chance, can you post close up pics of your remote mirror, including inside lever? BTW, Nice options!

Thanks

Thanks!  Here are some pics of the mirror.  Hope they help...
