What do you mean by original form? Stock appearing or numbers matching?

Mostly stock appearing as I think I got the numbers down that I need to search for.  Basically, once I acquire the Points distributor, can I just remove the current one and drop this one in? What else must be added or removed to make it operational?  

Thanks
92  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Restoring engine back to points: what's needed? on: May 24, 2012, 02:07:13 AM
I ultimately want to restore my 350 back to its original form.  I currently have a crane XR700 ignition, Holley 4150, and edelbrock rpm intake.

I have a 4MV quadrajet (needs rebuilding), i am on the hunt for a 3905393 intake and I found a lead on a 1111168 distributor that will be restored for me. 

When going back to points, is it as simple as swapping distributors, removing the XR700 components, and dialing everything in or is there more to it?

I have begun my search for a distributor that would have came on my car (1111168 7A).  Besides the following, is there anything else to look for or does anyone have pictures as reference?

Aluminum housing
External adjustment 
Single point
Blue color code
Vacuum equipped

Thanks for the info.

My car has the oil gauge and not the switch.

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
105  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
