also guess i need to switch out the steering column,   

At some point i want to go to a manual.  some one has already switched to a crap shifter on the floor but left the column shift in R i guess so the back up lights work... 

I just need to hit the lotor then order everything at once!

Thanks guys,

Ive been looking on line at all the different option.   I think from a time stand point and not much more money just ordering one from a online place is the way to go..

I hope the one the public gets runs as good as the test cars.  I had a 11 SS that was very slow..   took it in a few times and GM said nothing was wrong with it.   the wifes denali would hurt it feeling and im guessing my company work car would have given it a run for its money... Sad


On a side note, have you seen the youtube video of the Z28 going around Nürburgring, 
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / rear end upgrade 1969 on: January 03, 2014, 02:45:39 PM
Hello guys,

I want / need to upgrade my rear end.  Its currently a 10 bolt and some one down the line has swapped some of the suspension.   Im not sure where to even start unless i just take everything off and start with nothing. 

Ill get some photos so you can see what im attempting to type out lol.. 

I have the rear axle,  it has one leaf attached to it on each side. 
then it has big traction bars.  the traction bar on the passanger side is bent inward.  Im not sure if it can be made straight again or not.   
At any rate the traction bar is bent, so when it rotates upward to hit the leaf spring it missing it, which causes the car not to go straight even thought at its current state it doesnt have enough power to be a big problem lol.   

It also has air shocks, and sets of sub frame connectors. 

What i would like to do is swap to a stronger rear end that live with a bunch of abuse.   Ive looked on e bay and other web pages but they all offer differnt lengths,  some say they are out of other cars and can be interchanged and some cant.   
then in the local paper there is a ad for a few 12 bolt rear ends out of different letter body cars.  So which letter cars work on the camaro?

42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Side Exhaust on my 69 on: January 03, 2014, 10:26:45 AM
Yea looks good.   I have headman side pipe headers on the vette, but wasnt sure if they would clear on the camaro..

I havent done anything yet...  i took the kids for a ride saturday and it died,  will not restart..  i guess the fuel pump gave up Sad

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / fuel pump died? on: January 03, 2014, 10:20:26 AM
anyone ever have stock fuel pump just quit while driving down the road?

The car was running fine and just quit,  would not restart,   I figured that maybe the gauge was broken and I had ran it out of gas,   So we pushed it to the gas station and filled the tank,  it only held 9 gallons so I wasnt out of gas. Fast forward car will not restart.  I pulled the air cleaner off and gave it some gas, but no fuel comes out of the carb.   The "eye glass" is about half full, but again no fuel spraying into the motor from the carb. 


Im guessing that mechanical fuel pump has died,  or i maybe it has something huge stuck in the fuel line?   Ive never had a mechanical pump die so this is the first for me.   Speaking of what causes one them to quit?
