Over at someone suggested using a "Gas Buddy Aluminum Nozzel Boot Holder (  Has anyone used this device?  Remember I'm in Calif.  & have to deal with the rubber vapor gadget on fuel nozzels.
122  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Fan Shroud Gap Question on: November 06, 2010, 11:20:09 AM
Agree with Dutch, your fan should be half-in, half-out of the shroud.  How about your lower brackets?  Does the lower portion of the shroud fit into the factory brackets properly (so the shroud is tight against the lower part of the radiator)?  Not an expert, but seems like the upper shroud lip should be further forward on the radiator.

When filling my 68 with fuel (in California) often have difficulty with fuel leaking between the filler opening and hose nozzel.   Does not seem to matter how tight I hold the filler hose against the filler opening, or how slow I pump the gas.  Anyone know of a device  (or some trick) to stop the fuel leak during fillup?
124  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 Dash Pad removal on: October 21, 2010, 06:19:36 PM
Want to remove my 68 dash pad & send to Just dashes for restoral.  Whats the best way to remove it?  Prefer not removing the radio, heater controls, instrument cluster, etc.  Is there an easier way?
125  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Radiators on: October 13, 2010, 11:58:11 AM
Thanks Kurt & JohnZ for all the radiator info.  Want to keep as much of my 68 stock as I can, but still have good cooling.  Think I'll replace the current 4 blade with a 5 blade clutch fan setup & see how the temp looks in extended periods at idle/in traffic.  Can always add a larger core or alum radiator later.  Alumitech has one that can be painted gloss black & looks somewhat like the old Harrisons, or maybe go with a larger Harrison repro.

Converting my 68 SS 350V8, 4sp to air conditioning (Vintage Air). Need to change out the radiator & shroud to air (23" wide core).  Looking for advice on the best radiator to buy.  Plan to install a 7 blade, clutch fan.  Looked at alumitech, be cool, griffin, etc.  Do some cruising i.e. Hot August Nights, so the engine will running at idle /low speed for extended periods.  Would like to avoid electic fans if possible, but may need to install a manually controled pusher.  Any input is appreciated
127  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Clutch Fan disengage speed on: September 22, 2010, 11:43:08 AM
Does anyone know the approximate RPM that a 68 radiator clutch fan disengages.  I'm converting my 68 350 no air to a Vintage Air setup & will be installing the ac radiator & shroud.  Considering a 7 blade clutch fan instead of an electric.  Thanks.
128  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Replacement carb? on: September 11, 2010, 01:08:57 PM
I run a 350 with around 330 HP.  Changed my quadrajet to an Edelbrock 1406, electric choke.  It's 600 cfm, more than enough to handle the HP.  Stay away from the endurashine can flake off internally & clog up the carb.  Like the 1406 because I can easily change the metering rods "on the road" to compensate for high altitudes (ie going from sea level to 5000 ft.)
129  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / California yellow & black license plate on: September 11, 2010, 11:05:35 AM
Any suggestions on the best source for getting a 1968 California yellow/black license plate thats really "out of circulation".  See some on ebay but not sure I can trust their originality.  Don't want to go through the Calif DMV process to reregister the plate, only to find out its a counterfit.  Thanks.
130  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: replacing radiator on: September 09, 2010, 12:13:33 PM
Current radiator is manual xmsn, 21" 3 core.  Not an original Harrison.  It's got a tag showing John's Radiators, Chico, Ca. "008071.
131  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / replacing radiator on: September 08, 2010, 04:13:21 PM
Going to replace my old radiator with a higher efficiency unit with electric fan(s) when I install Vintage Air air conditioning this winter.  Anyone have recommendations of Be Cool vs Griffin vs ?  My 68 runs a 350 w/330 to 350 HP.  Anyone have opinions on 2 row 1.125 vs 2 row 1.00 cores?
132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Installing Vintage Air Gen IV on: August 09, 2010, 08:53:49 PM
Anyone have experience with installation of a Vintage Air Gen IV Sure Fit unit in a non air 68.  Looks pretty straight foreward, but I've gotten bit before.  Also will be putting in a Be Cool radiator/electric fan module at the same time?  Any advice/cautions?  Thanks.
133  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: repor grille fit on: August 09, 2010, 04:40:12 PM
Replaced the 68 non RS grill on my Camaro five months ago.  Went through 3 before getting one that fit pretty good.  Didn't seem to matter which parts house I used, they all came from the same Asia based supplier.  Finally bought a pretty decent one from Steve's Camaros in San Bruno, Ca.  , but I still had to redrill some of the mounting holes.  Would not suggest buying new headlite bezels or other trim pieces hoping that makes it fit better. 
134  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: attaching 68 grille to lower valance on: August 03, 2010, 05:36:31 PM
Just replaced my original '68 non RS grill with a new one (the old one was getting warped & brittle).  Old center grill section still had the original lower clips on it. On mine, the center grill to valance panel uses clips and sheet metal screws.  Can't guarantee it came from the factory this way as I'm not the original owner, but think this is the first time the old grill has been out if the car.  The center grill to lower grill (flat black aluminum strip is secured with nuts). 
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 Custom interior seat back emblem backing plates on: July 31, 2010, 12:06:20 PM
Anyone need correct backing plates for 1968 custom/houndstooth seat back emblems.  I was unable to locate these, so had a local metal fabricator make a die/stamp, and manufacture me some.  They are the correct shape to recess the emblem, are made of galvanized steel, and are correct size and shape of original.  Only difference is emblem mounting holes are round (vs square on factory).  I'm not in the parts business, but figured since I had to pay for the stamp anyway, maybe someone else can benefit too.  Estimate cost would be $11.00 ea.  Can provide photos if anyone is interested
