I will be there, I am picking up some parts from a vendor (to save shipping).  I would like to meet some local members from CRG.  Gary, are you going to have a booth?  I would like to hear from anyone who is going to be there. Thanks.

I own a 69 convertible and the procedure for filling the fluid is in the 69 Fisher body manual starting on page 13-33.  I am not positive, but I believe 67's have the same system.  I would check the 67 Fisher body manual just to be sure.

Thanks for the reply. I saw that part number in the assembly manual for the "cement" but it is no longer a good number.  Does anyone know an equivalent product? Thanks.

Here are a couple of pictures of the lower half of the upper rear shock mounts.  The stuff on the parts appears to be 3M strip caulk?? Maybe??  The assembly manual does give a measurement of 4.5 inches ............. for something that comes in strips, this makes sense, but for cement??  All replies are welcome.  I am sure some of you guys have rebuilt this area of your cars.  Thanks.
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / "Cement" used at rear shock mounts?? on: December 04, 2014, 10:08:53 PM
At this point in my restoration, I am currently installing a new complete trunk floor in my 1969 RS/SS convertible.  After removing the bolts for the lower portion of the upper shock bracket, cutting the welds and removing the upper steel mounting braces,  I found some kind of sealant under the brackets around the hole openings. UPC 4 B3 calls it cement  60a.  I can't tell from looking what it is.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Here's a picture taken during engine disassembly of my 11D (Nov 1968) L48 (300HP 350 M38 (turbo 350).  The car had original starter, so I would guess the brace is also original.

9  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1969 - Orphans / Re: 300 HP 350 block 19N552258 T1120HA on: July 27, 2014, 04:24:26 PM
I believe the casting number should be 3932388.  My engine was also built in Tonawanda on 1120 except it is an HB (automatic).  My vin is very close to that one.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Trim Tag D80 question on: July 12, 2014, 07:50:22 AM
I have an 11D L48 (RS/SS convertible) with factory spoilers. There are no X or option codes on my trim plate.  It is my understanding that D80 would not be on a trim tag before the second week of December, which was when the X codes first appeared.  Here is my tag.

That reminds me of a story of back when I was a Tech for a Chevy dealer in the early 70's.  I had a car that wouldn't pump fluid. First I tried a repair kit (which worked a lot of the time), but not this time.  So, I went to the parts window and asked the manager if he could get me the 'o' ring on the piston in the pump.  He looked at me and with a straight face said, "sure, I have a whole shelf full of them".  I told him I needed one and he brought me a box.  I opened the box and inside was a washer pump.  I told him all I wanted was the 'o' ring. at which point he looked at me and said "only way it comes".  That was 40 years ago ............ surely someone must make them now .............. maybe?

My 1969 SS/RS 350 (L48) is a Turbo-350 automatic car built 11D (68) VIN puts it around December 6.  153 tooth flywheel and 1108420 starter.  Starter was probably replaced under warranty???  Here it is after I rebuilt it.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Carb Spring Bracket finish for 1969 L48 on: June 14, 2014, 10:33:53 PM
I need input from you all again.  I would like to know the finish on the carb. return spring bracket that mounts at the coil on a 1969 L48 engine.  This bracket is shown in the 1969 Assembly Manual under UPC L48 A3.  My bracket is currently painted orange, but I don't think that that is correct.  Since the bracket is shown in the assembly manual with a part # 3930791, it was added to the engine on the assembly line, so therefore I believe orange is wrong.  Am I correct in assuming the the bracket was painted black, or phosphated either light grey, dark grey, or black?  Also, what color was the carb. return spring? Was it light brown as Heartbeat City suggests? Or was it some other color. Your help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / RS Headlight Vacuum Hoses on: June 09, 2014, 07:38:25 PM
Hey guys, I am now in the process of restoring my RS headlight vacuum hoses.  I am looking for some help in deciding to try to clean up and restore my hoses, or to buy reproduction.  The reproduction hoses I have seen have several problems with them.  First, the large size hoses only have 3 ribs on them not 5 like my originals. Second, the diameters are off.  They are a bit small.  My original check valve has Trico logo on it and the filter has AC on it.  I have found the AC filters, but not the Trico check valve.  The reproduction tie straps used on the hoses do not have enough lock ridges on them and are too hard (my originals are softer, almost rubbery).  The reproduction straps also have an extra knob on them about an inch or so from the slotted end.  These incorrect straps appear to be the same as the ones AMK sells.  Now for the questions.  First, does anyone make a hose set that is like the originals (or very close).  Second, I am posting a picture of my hoses, are they able to be restored?  If so, what process is needed to bring them back to life?  Thanks for listening, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Well, it took me longer to get back to the shroud than I figured, but that's about par for the course.  Anyways, I scrubbed and washed and scrubbed some more and most of the shroud cleaned up except for the top surface.  The surface had a different look to it so I took some lacquer thinner and applied some to a small area on a rag.  Yep, that was it, the top surface had been painted black.  Got it all cleaned off with the lacquer thinner and it looks pretty good now.  It has a couple of scrapes and some very faint writing, but overall looks almost new.
