211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Rally wheel valve stem length on: September 29, 2011, 02:58:40 PM
Anyone know the correct length - either overall or protruding from the rim to cap - for rally wheel valve stems?  Specifically 67 DG 14x6 wheels.  I believe they were Dill 627s, but seems like there are various lengths for this number.  Thanks.

I believe it has also been mentioned on this site that for any judged event, points will be deducted for having the kit installed, even though it was a recall.  Has to be how it left the factory, pre-recall.

Engine lift stop cable, also sometimes referred to as a stop lift kit.  They were recently discussed over at the TC site, probably here as well if you search.

Maybe try Grainger or McMaster Carr for suitable tubing.  McMaster usually has good descriptions of the material and strength.  If not showing the car, you could just add a small length of braided sleeve or spring like you see used on some hoses for protection.

Must be a drive rivet, similar to the types shown on page 156 of the AMK catalog.  Maybe a little JB weld down the hole ahead of the rivet? Seems you'd need a special tool or mallet to keep from smashing the head.

Just wondering if I should tell him and show the proof, or just let it be.

Most likely you'll get an arguement and told you don't know squat, especially if they bought it from someone else, thinking it was genuine and now realize they were duped.

If you're no longer interested I'd just walk away, maybe just say there were discrepancies.  If they really want to know what they are, they'll ask.  If you're still interested definitely use it as a bargaining tool and walk if things get heated.   

If you have any info like VIN or trim tag the mods here or at TC site may want to add to their databases, so any future buyers know that at least the paperwork is fake, if not more.

Does it have the original engine?  Gauge cars used a different temp sender unit and you'd have the small brass oil pressure fitting and plastic hose on the top rear of the block.  The temp sending unit for gauges has a connector that sort of resembles the head of a common nail, while the unit for indicator light is a blade type connector.  Looks like this:

Saw these, but I don't think this is what you want plus looks like they floor mount for the front:  http://wescoperformance.stores.yahoo.net/am4point.html

IMO, there are other safety factors that come into play before the benefits of going from a 3 to 4 point belt.  Stuff like no crumple zones, air bags, or side impact reinforcement etc like you have on modern cars.  My point is, belts are just part of the total safety system.  In a road collision there may be bigger issues like the steering column or something else, things you cannot change on these older cars if staying original.

Steve - PM sent.
220  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Well liner installation on: August 13, 2011, 08:29:52 AM
The Fisher Body service manual has a detailed section on installing tops and how the pieces get layered.  Also if you go to the Team Camaro site forums they have a section for convertibles.  A topic search there will probably find you an answer as well.  Don't know off the top of my head, never attempted an installation.   
221  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Convertible Rear Speaker on: July 23, 2011, 09:33:18 PM
Yep, plus to verify on a 67 you would have the group 2 code R on the trim tag for the rear speaker option U80.
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Convertible Rear Speaker on: July 23, 2011, 11:54:22 AM
I'll chech the p/n later today - I had a speaker guy in Ohio who had a rebuilt pair that I was looking at, however I just needed one for the 67 setup and he didn't want to split the pair.  He was offering me the pair at $170, but I'm not certain 67 and 69 used the same one.
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68' A Arm & Frame Dust Shields on: July 21, 2011, 01:29:21 PM
Sorry if I'm derailing this topic, but does anyone have a tip for a correct looking roll-over on the staples ends?  Is a "camel-hump" appearance correct?  I was thinking about using a pair of needle nose and rolling over, then push it down a little more into the rubber.   
224  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1967 - Orphans / Re: 7L112167 - L48 engine on: July 19, 2011, 01:40:22 PM
Interesting partial VIN stamp on this block.  My MU block was cast and assembled two months before this one, and went in a car around 4500 units after this one, same assembly plant.  The chrome oil filler tube is also interesting.  If original it lends another data point for its use on L48s.  I believe there was another complete engine on eBay recently that appeared original and had the chrome tube.     
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: daytona yellow with yellow interior and tire chain on: July 15, 2011, 06:13:22 PM
Only 188 came from the factory with the RPO V75 traction compound dispenser, so probably not too many documented ones left as it sort of implies the car was bound for the Rust Belt, etc.  Every once in awhile you'll see cans of the compound listed on eBay.  They didn't keep records down to the exterior color and interior combination level.  Estimated 7% of 69s were Daytona Yellow, so something less than that for yellow on yellow combo.  It's all found in the research topics at the top of the home page.  Some of the ones you spotted in the past may not have been factory original.
