151  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: dome light won't go out on: September 30, 2010, 09:59:25 PM
In a 1969, the left door jam switch controls and applies the ground for two circuits, the interior/courtesy lights, and the key buzzer switch. In the interior light circuit, the headlight switch can also ground the ciruit by turning the knob all the way past the detent. The interior light grounds are white. Interior/courtesy lights are fed 12 V pos. at all times via orange wires. In the key buzzer circuit, the left door jam switch will ground (through the black wire) the key buzzer switch (in the steering column by the ignition lock), which if there is a key in the ignition lock depresssing the contacts will activate the buzzer. The right door jam switch only has the white interior light ground wire since the driver rarely exits though the right door forgetting his keys.  Grin. So if your dome light is staying on, the white wire is grounded somewhere. It could be in the door jamb switches, the headlight switch, or any of the white wires could be shorted to ground. A remote possibility could also be that the black wire for the key buzzer switch is grounded, but in that case the buzzer would sound any time a key is in the ignition with the door open or closed.

Yes, the car was too  early (9N504656) for the long 69 spoiler too.

I am finding this thread very interesting because I am just starting the restoration of my intake manifold and related parts. Both wire supports were missing and a friend gave me these. I know they are rough, but wanted to know if they were correct before doing any work to them. The car is a 1969 RS/SS 350 (L48) with M38 and no A/C.

According to Colvin's Chevrolet by the Numbers (1965-69), "This cylinder head was the change-over head in moving the temperature sending unit from the intake manifold to the cylinder head. The production of this head started in March/April 1967. All early #3917291 (1) heads dated from March to April will have the temperature sending unit boss, but it probably will not be drilled and tapped. Sometime in May or June of 1967 the boss was drilled and tapped in preparation for the 1968 model year." Hope that helps.

The GM part number was 546702 and it fit just about anything with gauges from 1963 through 1975. Not sure if this is still a good number or not.

Hey John, who makes the best reproduction fuel tanks for a 69? Thanks.

If you check the 69 assembly manual, U46  A2  page 425, you will see only 2 fiber optics for the front.  You cannot have three since the high beam and low beam are the same bulb.

I would do a proper alternator check. By this I mean to disassemble it and electrically test each component. Sounds like a possible diode problem (always check diodes with a diode tester not an ohm meter).  Always remember, new means new, and does not necessarily mean good.

I was taught something about 40 years ago .............. New means new, but new does not necessarily mean good.  This even has more meaning in this day and age with most of the parts (including GM) being produced offshore.

Kurt, are you sure Denise or Brenda won't hurt the tag? I heard they can be pretty rough..........  Smiley

One more question on this subject.  What is a good stripper that won't hurt the aluminum tag?  Thanks for all the input guys.

I am in the process of doing a total restoration to my 1969 RS/SS 350 Convertible and I need some input as to what to do with the Fisher Body tag. Should I remove it to restore the firewall? and then refinish the tag, Or do I tape it off and work around it? Or do I leave it attached, strip it and paint it with the rest of the firewall? What is the proper way to do this? Thanks.

Thanks for the numbers. If I squint, turn my head a little, and hold my mouth just right, I can see those numbers in my manifolds. Well, should I bead blast the manifolds, paint with exhaust manifold grey and move to the next parts (after all they are the original manifolds)? Or try to find a better pair. Any comments are welcome. Thanks.

164  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1969 L48 Automatic Exhaust Manifolds on: February 20, 2010, 11:09:03 PM
I am finally in the process of restoring my 69 RS/SS 350 convertible after owning it 33 years.  I have a question about the exhaust manifolds.  I removed them from the car today and tried to read the numbers on them. I know they are original as I purchased the car from the first owner. The car spent it's first eight years in New England and the manifold numbers are very difficult (if not impossible) to read.  Can anyone tell me what the numbers are supposed to be and if they would keep these manifolds or try to find a less pitted set. Thanks.

Heads were cast after engine was built (Aug 1969 heads on a Feb 1969 build). Could be correct for 302 but not for the build date.
