I found this to be most helpful. Hope it helps. Thanks to Ian Johnson for his research:    http://www.worldwidecamaroclub.com/pdf/tech/tiltsteering1.pdf
Wow again Bentley!! Smiley   Why didn't you post that link a couple of years ago before I spent MANY hours trying to figure out all those differences!!    I finally determined an extra column I had was for a Chevelle, but I NEVER learned about the date codes.. Smiley
Gary I hear you its soo much easier today with the web I have several columns and wanted to know the diffrences - small chance mine is a camaro original either. I am trying to make my car close as I can afford to make it right but like most hotrods all PO have been fools

4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 tilt column research looking for original info on: March 19, 2014, 10:17:00 PM
My 69 has a tilt in it and it needs some work, its not working well and needs repainted and I was trying to confirm if is a real camaro tilt or not, I know these were similar for several years but would like to know what they look like- correct for 1969 I have searched here and Camaros.net and very little info and the best thread I found was here http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=10632.0
But this looks like a nicely built one but is it right? any pics or info of orig 69 columns would be appreciated
thanks CRG people

Thats Cool! I raced my first 69 RS/Z there -like 13.70s? and was spinning every gear change the track was blacktop  I also went to a early Super Chevy at Green Valley around 1980 and those pics brick back memories!

I wouldnt bother with 12 bolt(unless your restoring it to be original) the 72-79 Nova 8.5 10 bolts or big 10 are near as strong as 12 bolt and alot easier to find and alot cheaper
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: connecting rod reconditioning on: March 11, 2014, 11:38:11 AM
"Dimple" rods weren't used on the 67 350, but to answer your question, yes you can overdo anything.

Ed


Sorry Ed but 1967 Camaro 350 rods WERE Dimple, they are very unique in that they used the 11/32 bolt same as the small journal rod, and to clarify they had a raised dimple just under the wristpin area on both side, same as a L78 rod. in the last 40 years I have taken apart and overhauled 3 known original SS350 Camaro engines and they all had them. Very hard to find rods and only used in 1967.
Very interesting - does anyone have some pics of these? I've been playing with camaros since late 70's and I'm still getting educated

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: October 10, 2013, 04:50:53 PM
Gary the plastic line is avaialable at Ricks  pn# CG-15 but you will still need the fitting and tube to install with this block fitting from what it appears to me. I dont believe the ends on this line kit are correct for the OE block fitting. you would need to cut one end off and add the two earlier listed parts - coorect me if I'm wrong
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: m20 bolt markings on: October 07, 2013, 12:23:30 PM
I have a 68 Muncie M20 and the cover bolts all have a letter L on the head seems to be common, the taillhousing bolts seems to be marked SBC

may look at this thread I was trying to determine what was original for my car

good stuff guys thanks !
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: September 11, 2013, 07:38:40 AM

The plastic line will work with a nut replacement, but it needs the internal line sleeve per the manufacturer.
The nut/cone pinches down on the line.
OK that makes sense now, thanks!

I am missing this item, if anyone has a spare pm please
OK I have this fitting now and has a bit of the old brass hardline and my car has a black plastic line to the guage that I thought was OE, is this correct? I have doubts that this will work now or not. I know the small flare nut isnt reuseable but will a new one work with the plastic line?

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1969 radio delete plate and speaker carboard on: September 06, 2013, 09:55:08 AM
I have added a late model radio and installed it in the glove box and was planning on adding a radio delete plate in place of the AM radio. My car has the woodgrain accents and the detete plate I have is just black plastic, would an original have the woodgrain? and even if not I would like to add it so it matches the driver side. also does anyone have pictures of the speaker blockoff cardboard and installed?  thoughts?
