I forgot about the green-to-black change in December/January for standard belts; if yours has green belts that appear to be original, your car may represent an earlier data point for the changeover than we've observed to date.

All standard seat belts were black, regardless of interior color; they were still black with the deluxe (Z87) interior too. Deluxe belts matched the interior color, but they were a stand-alone option, not tied to any other option, and had to be ordered separately.

No, the grommets were not installed at the time of painting - they were part of the wiper motor as received, and the wiper motor was installed about two shifts later by Chevrolet, long after the body was painted at Fisher Body. There should be no paint of any kind on the grommets or on the ground strap.

Yes - L-48's used both 041 and 186 heads (with 1.94"/1.5" valves, not with 2.02"/1.6" valves).

Aaron,

A chambered system is too restrictive?  That doesn't seem to make sense.  They were developed to be much less restrictive.  Hence the noise issue.

Restriction and noise level attenuation are two different issues; the chambered exhaust system is both louder and more restrictive than the standard dual system, just as it was on the Corvettes of the era. Chambered exhaust on the Camaro and Chevelle and sidepipes on the Corvette used the same 1-7/8" I.D. pipes manufactured by Walker, and the option was driven by Marketing, not by Engineering.

There weren't any weld-nuts in the tunnel for the console attachment; the front bracket has two threaded studs on it that go through holes drilled in the floor with loose nuts on the bottom, and the center and rear attachments use Riv-nuts clinched into holes drilled in the floor. Non-console cars had no holes in the floor - the four console attaching holes were drilled at assembly for D55.

You might want to post the question over on the forum at www.nastyz28.com - that site is pretty much dedicated to 2nd-Gen Camaros (this one is primarily focused on 1st-Gen cars).  Smiley

Yes.

Any '70 Corvette that weighs 4000# is carrying 700# of lead ballast - they weighed 3300# with a full tank of fuel - about the same as a '69 Camaro. Now that I think about it.(geez its been 30 yrs) It could have been another car. Embarrassed I'm fairly sure my camaro was #4000 lbs

Well, if your Camaro weighed 4000#, it was carrying ballast too. A '69 Camaro V-8 coupe weighed 3135#, and a V-8 convertible weighed 3385# (add 249# for a BB).

I have power steering on my '69Z, and it works fine; it's over-boosted like all GM systems were in the 60's-70's, but that's the way it was back then. Mine was manual when I got it, but I tired of the low-speed steering effort and converted it to power using all factory parts.
3686  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 speed warning help needed on: July 26, 2006, 07:31:13 PM
The original speedwarning buzzer was discontinued decades ago, but you can get a functional replacement from Long Island Corvette Supply (www.licorvette.com) for about $20 - their #39-29D.

Was the manual steering on a 70 vette the same system as a 1st gen Camaro? Huh

Nope - '63-'82 Corvettes used the "linkage-boosted" system with a power cylinder - same system the early Chevy II used.

Any '70 Corvette that weighs 4000# is carrying 700# of lead ballast - they weighed 3300# with a full tank of fuel - about the same as a '69 Camaro.

Drill a 9/16" hole at a convenient location on the top plate (out of the way of the linkage and plumbing) and tap it 3/8" NPT for a standard manifold vacuum fitting and re-connect your booster.
3689  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: what dealership??? on: July 24, 2006, 03:38:18 PM
There were over 4,000 Chevy dealers - do you have any paperwork or a Protect-O-Plate for the car?
3690  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Power Steering Power Booster 'Feed'??? on: July 24, 2006, 03:35:30 PM
I think you mean power brake booster, not power steering, right?
