121  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.
122  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?
123  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.
124  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. 
125  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). 
126  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
127  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.
128  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?
129  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 4spd xmsn shifter on: October 25, 2009, 10:44:06 AM
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. 
130  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

132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hot August Nights in Reno: 31 July - 9 August on: July 28, 2009, 11:35:04 AM
I've been going to HAN in Reno/Sparks for 19 years.  Great event.  Any CRG members showing their cars?
133  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 SS hood hinge spring on: July 28, 2009, 11:30:26 AM
I'm trying to determine if my 68 SS w/SS hood has the correct hood hinge springs.  My car has 26 wound coils per spring & holds the hood up just fine.  In aftermarket catalogs & at a recent car show I've seen 28 coils.   Now I see in some catalogs the replacement non SS spring has 22 coils.   What's correct?
134  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / GM Mark of Excellence Decal on: July 18, 2009, 10:50:17 AM
Follow up to an earlier question on the Mark Of Excellence Decal.  I understand most/all 68's did not have the decals.  I'm helping a friend with a 67' RS & he wants to put the Decal(s) on.  In photos/books/e Bay postings we see many different locations on the door jamb.  Some show the bottom of the decal level with the screw.  Some show the decal between the door latch & the screw.  What would be correct.  Regarding my 68 SS.  Have a Muncie M21, but it has a white shift lever ball...thought the correct was black with a chrome base.  Any help would be appreciated.
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 seat back stop cable on: July 04, 2009, 10:53:44 AM
Thanks for the help.  Looks like I'll be making one myself.
