I think it appeared in a few Scooby Doo episodes
287  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1967 A/C Bezels on: March 12, 2011, 06:19:14 PM
In JohnZ's research report on first gen assembly process, under Chevrolet Assembly - Paint Shop Operations Details / Low Bake Paint it mentions how small parts were received, painted, and moved to trim line etc.  I believe the bezels are all painted dash color, and suspect they were part of this process.  The part numbers shown in the AIM, without any special finish notes, may just be to differentiate left from right and not an indicator of a finished part from the supplier.

Here's a site that shows lamp pics, you just have to muddle thru the household and Christmas tree lamps or better yet use the search box near top right.

Nothing came up for an 8646, I've never heard of that one.  I think amber lamps were only used when you had a directional/parking light with a clear or white lens, possible also the early front side markers if lens was clear.

You may already be aware of this, but the ballasts are different each year and differ from Firebird as well.  See the stickys here, good info:

Very good Paul.

Now how about that squigly doodle up on top?!


Someone call Nicholas Cage or Tom Hanks!

You may also hear new original stock or new obsolete stock used.  New old stock is the more common term though.
292  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Wiring diagram for 67 8-track player, early design. on: February 09, 2011, 02:28:01 PM
I'm not very familiar with the 8 track setups but there was a recent discussion on the TC site:

You should also search both sites.  I seem to recall other discussions about the 67 factory versus dealer installed systems.   

Also I saw this $$$ underdash switch recently on ebay, not sure if it's the correct part #:

I believe the 67 assembly instruction manual (AIM) would also help you out on this.
293  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 door hinge repair on: February 04, 2011, 02:13:40 PM
Years ago I tried a drill and tap type detent repair kit, thing snapped off after a short period.  But maybe they're making them better now?

If you decide to replace you can carefully do one at a time and leave the door in place plus be close to correct door alignment from the start.  For a rebuild I wouldn't leave the door dangling that long a period.  Which ever way you go, have a buddy help you, even if they can just balance the door.  The last thing you need is the door flapping around on one hinge as the jack or dolly slides away and your fingers get crushed.
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Headlights dim on: February 02, 2011, 12:12:16 PM
FWIW, this was linked in on a dim headlight discussion, I believe over on the TC site.  Found it interesting but I'm no electrician and have no idea on content accuracy.  Also not an option if you're running a purely stock setup:

295  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: looking for motor for car #124677N140669 on: January 06, 2011, 04:07:20 PM
If you're just looking to get close, there's an MS block 7N151033 in the 67 Orphans section.  I feel your pain, finally settled for one about 700 cars / two days before mine.  Never will stop looking though.  Seems those MS and MU blocks are pretty scare.
296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '69 Alternator ? on: December 08, 2010, 03:41:24 PM
July 24, 1970.  Looks like that part number was used beginning in 69 and at least up through 1971:
297  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 Power disk brakes problem on: December 01, 2010, 11:52:28 AM
If you send the calipers out for rebuild, make sure they don't grind down the casting # area to restamp with their own internal number.  Hopefully rebuilders today know not to do this, but I have seen some older rebuilds where this was done. 
298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 68 Power disk brakes problem on: December 01, 2010, 11:46:38 AM
I can't explain it as good as he can, but basically you have to make sure your rotors are true to .003" or you could have problems. And you have to have them turned as an "assembly" (hub and rotor), or you won't get accurate results. Not so much an issue on the Camaro one piece rotors, but difficult on the original Camaro/Corvette two piece "hub and rotor" assemblies.


Ed - do you know of any source for new rotors for a 67-68 two piece setup?  I recently rediscovered my original two piece rotor hubs and would like to go back to stock, without having to buy the entire repopped hub/rotor assembly just to get a rotor.
299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Prestone Brake Clean Parts Cleaner on: December 01, 2010, 11:28:21 AM
There's a few AutoZone's in Maryland - Frederick, Silver Spring, Laurel etc.  If you go to their website you can run a store locator that gives each store's phone #.  I was surprised Advance Auto doesn't carry it, as they have most other Prestone products.

I read somewhere in another thread that the deck lid was stamped at the factory. If this is correct can you tell me where the stamp is located and if this stamp dates the lid? Again...its a 12A Van Nuys build.

Thanks John
