121  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
123  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.
124  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.)
125  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.
126  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.
127  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?
128  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.
129  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. 
130  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). 
131  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
132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Interior on: May 17, 2010, 01:49:27 PM
I'm restoring my 68 deluxe interior.  I'm missing the backing plates for the deluxe seatback emblems.  Can't find them in any catalogs.  Does anyone know where I can obtain new or used ones?  Does anyone have a drawing/sketch with dimensions so I can make some myself?  Made some flat backing plates, but they don't recess the emblems properly.
133  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 1968 non air heater blower speeds on: December 23, 2009, 03:32:30 PM
1968 non air SS 350.  Only getting one speed when I operate the heater fan switch.  Replaced the fan switch and resistor unit (in the heater duct box).  Wiring seems ok at the resistor and switch.   Read other forum comments regarding an in line fuse on air equipped, but don't see one on my non air.  I get continuity & different ohm readings ok at the heater switch.  Any suggestions?

Still looking for help re: using 68 Muncie shifter/linkage on an older Muncie 4speed with speedo cable on the left side (see previous post).  Does anyone know if it will work ok, without changing out the tailshaft to a later Muncie.  My 68 SS xmsn was recently rebuilt, so don't want to change it out to a correct numbers matching unit (yet).  Thanks. 
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 68 4spd xmsn shifter on: September 26, 2009, 11:00:13 AM
My 68 SS has an older muncie m21 4spd (casting 3851325).  Has the speedo cable on the left side & appears to be out of a 1963-65 chevy/nova/etc.  Since it was just rebuilt (over $1900), I'm not ready to replace it with a numbers matching xmsn(yet).  I'd like to change the linkage/shifter to the correct 68 muncie. Does anyone know if the 68 linkage/shifter will work ok?  Thanks
