16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 68 350 engine - how to start on: February 14, 2014, 01:33:55 PM
Have a (numbers correct) 68 Camaro 350 engine that's been in a boat for years.....time to put it back in a Camaro.  It's been sitting in the boat, unstarted,  for 8/9 years.  Fuel was drained, new oil put in (years ago).  What's the best way to prepare it for cranking/starting.  Don't want to damage the cylinder walls, etc,

Totally Stainless in Aspers, Pa. 1-717-677-8811 (totallystainless.com) sells a 5/16-24 x 0.7 flat top carriage bolt.  It's part number 2-0773 and is intended for Ford stepside rear fenders.  I ordered a few, & the dimensions are approx. 11/16 diam across the head, and 3/4 in. from the head to end of threads.  It's in their on line catalog.  Cost me all of .78/ea.

For those of you that used a carriage bolt with the head ground flat, what size (length & diam) stainless bolt did you use?

Question.....  I've heard its better to leave the battery connected, but on a charger/maintainer during winter storage...vs disconnecting the battery?   I usually keep mine connected, but on a maintainer.  Makes it easier to start & run through the gears (with the garage door open) during winter.  With my car, seems to start better if I crank it up every 7 to 10 days.

Check out Sherm's Plating in Sacramento, Ca.  (shermsplating.com).   They can repair/polish/replate/anodize your old ones.  Not inexpensive, but they do lots of custom work, & many of the rods featured in Street Rodder mag.

Have you considered taking it to an automotive glass installation/repair shop?   They may have commercial grade chemicals you don't normally have access to.

Anyone showing their car at Hot August Nights later this week in Reno/Sparks?
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: '68 window fuzzies - ordered Steele.....got Repops on: July 25, 2013, 11:02:15 AM
Ok, so we don't like the Steele or Repop fuzzies.   Who makes the best ones.  I'm looking for some that fit good and look like factory originals.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 Horns on: July 24, 2013, 09:51:25 AM
RS mounts on the center support, non RS mounts on the drivers side of radiator support.  Horns, and attached mounting brackets, are the same for both installations.  Assembly manual shows correct mounting method for both setups.

Are you switching from bias ply to radial, or already radial.  When I went to radial found that the factory front alignment specs didn't work well.  Went to a customized setup to compensate for the radial tires.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heartbeat City reputation on: June 24, 2013, 11:13:40 AM
I've been pleased with Heartbeat's customer service and shipping, but the quality/accuracy of their parts is no better (or worse) than other venders.  What they call "same as original" many times is not.  I tend to buy most stuff from a nearby Camaro parts house (Steve's Camaros) where I can inspect the parts before purchase.  I understand not everyone has a Camaro parts dealer within 50 miles.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Need cheap insurance on: April 15, 2013, 11:03:14 AM
Many of the collector car insurance company's (i.e. Hagerty) base the premium cost on the automobile replacement value you choose.  Lower the value, lower the premium cost to you.   Might be worth checking out.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Solid subframe bushings at the core support ??? on: April 13, 2013, 11:17:50 AM
Have you ridden in a Camaro with solid bushings.   Rides like a 50 year old truck.  Great if you'r going to autocross or go pro-touring...not so good on the street.  Have you considered poly bushings?

Don't forget to check out Coker tires.
