91  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Did console gauge cars also have a low oil pressure switch? on: April 27, 2012, 12:06:55 AM
Did 1967 console gauge cars also have a low oil pressure switch?  Was it located in the rear of the engine block (any pics)?  It was separate from the oil pressure line?    Where did the low oil pressure light come on when illuminated - dash cluster?  Thanks

1. Usually a star washer means ground.  Though, in that area, there usually isn't a separate ground wire for anything.  In '68 there was a ground wire added to the instrument cluster that goes to the pedal support brace.  You might have to just try to get in there and look around for a wire hanging or an empty hole.  Not easy, I know...

2. Yes, the radio power wire is Yellow.  And that looks like the correct type of connector for it, too.

3.  Do your headlight doors work?  That is the connector for them.  Correct colors, too.  I believe it is in the correct location, as well.

Yeah, I am not totally sold on the washer being there for a ground so if anyone has any other ideas of what it might be for  let me know.  It has me stumped, as it seems it was more stuck to something than connected to something.  When I pulled out my old dash harness to replace with a new one it just fell out, I just cant figure from where???

As for the headlight doors, is that connection off the dash harness?  I have that installed but do not see/remember a connection from the dash harness to that connection near the fuse box.  Or is that connected to a different harness (ie rear, engine, ect.)  Thanks for the help...

1.  This star washer fell out from behind the dash around the headlight and/or windshield washer switches, but the switches were not removed.  Where does it go?
    


2.  Is this yellow wire the radio power?



3.  What are these blue and brown wires near the top right of the fuse box to?

Thanks.  Looks like I am going to have to d/c the housing and connect them that way...

67 with deluxe interior. 

I  want to replace my sail panel courtesy light wiring harness.  How do you get to the connections?  I was lying in my trunk but my arms were still to short to reach them from the back side.  Any one have any suggestions?

Sorry big iron!  Didnt realize you had asked a question on my post.  Anyways,

My car is an O1C

and my console plugs in at the dash harness at the lower firewall, kind of just hanging there I guess...

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.

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
101  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
102  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!
103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / How to assemble oil line to block fitting? on: March 02, 2012, 04:49:57 PM
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!
105  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...
