106  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 original alternator.... 37 amp ?? on: June 30, 2012, 09:21:03 AM

107  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Two piece brake rotor replacement. on: June 30, 2012, 08:23:24 AM
DT
The original rotors on these Camaros were a 2 piece design. The aftermarket had 1 piece to replace them when they wore out. They are now being offered as a 2 piece design again but some would rather keep as much of the original car as possible so the wants just the rotor minus the hub....Joe

Joe, isnt that what I said?  .....  Perhaps he is asking how the hub is on the 1 piece unit as Ed pointed out with clearance???
108  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Two piece brake rotor replacement. on: June 29, 2012, 08:15:24 PM
Ed,
 Do you know if the Rick's rotors fit the factory hubs?
  VT

HUH???  No one is selling JUST the rotor???  You can purchase the replacement rotor without the hub.  It then will become a one piece unit.  Not sure what you are asking here?
109  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 309 Master or 346 Master??? on: June 21, 2012, 08:41:14 PM
I'm confused, 01C is January, 3rd week no???  09D, September, 4th week ??

   September of the prior year (1968) was the start date. 
Oh, ok thanks!

You may have seen that on the "technical updates" page of a later rev of JM's '69 book. I happened to examine a very original early production Norwood Z/28 that had a 5460346 master stamped US and passed the info along. I have seen earlier cars with 309s so maybe this was a case of Chevy using up some inventory.

The car in question was much earlier than yours, 09D. An 01C car would have the 309.
I'm confused, 01C is January, 3rd week no???  09D, September, 4th week ??
111  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 309 Master or 346 Master??? on: June 21, 2012, 06:06:12 PM

112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Where to buy new steering and suspension components ??? on: June 04, 2012, 05:35:29 PM
Parts for my Harley are made in China. It's sad to know even HD joined the corporate whores to use cheap foreign labor.
I heard GM may move the manufacture of the Volt to China.

No S**t

Not all Moog parts are made in the US anymore.  Be careful.  I replaced all of my front end parts with "Classic Suspension" parts from HeartBeat City.  Yes they are made over seas, but I wanted the "Correct" OEM appearance.  Its funny hearing guys complain of certain parts being made overseas.  I would say ALL of the reproduction parts we buy for our cars are made overseas.  Just my .02
114  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 front bumper guards on: May 31, 2012, 03:22:23 PM
Gary, that is awesome!!!  That was exactly what I was looking for!!  My guards also have the "SP" markings.  Thanks again.
115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 front bumper guards on: May 30, 2012, 04:49:08 PM
Thanks for the reply Gary.  Any markings on them ??
116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 front bumper guards on: May 28, 2012, 08:03:32 AM
Anyone else add anything to this topic?  Still trying to determine what is different between the repro bumper guards and original GM ones? Anyone have an original set??  Thanks again.

A firebird crossmember looks identical (almost) to a Chevy BB 4 speed crossmember. They are different.  The subframe will work.
118  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: AMD Suframes - Quality, fitment, and finish ??? on: May 19, 2012, 12:28:50 PM
What's the % of subframes with this problem that requires shaft replacement? Not including hammered track cars. Not sure what it has to do with panel alignment since sheetmetal does not rely on the subframe for that. You can drop a subframe and the sheetmetal maintains it's position. Subframes are on Craigslist quite often.
Good point.  Here is something interesting:

119  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: AMD Suframes - Quality, fitment, and finish ??? on: May 19, 2012, 11:09:53 AM
AMD claims the chassis sags over time which accounts for the need to add more and more shims to the caster/camber. If that is true then wouldn't it sound logical that even though a used 40 years +GM chassis is available that you would still face the same sagging issues?
  Just a thought.

Mike
I have heard of this as well. Moog even sells an offset upper control arm shaft to compensate.  Having said that, who wants to deal with body panels not lining up when a couple of shims and/or the Moog control arm shaft will solve the problem.  Jusy my .02

I have heard of fitment issues with body panels, look for a good used GM one. They are all over EBay.
Here is one on Team Camaro;
