3706  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What options came with the Z21 style trim group? on: April 08, 2006, 01:23:01 PM
And a Z/28 ordered with Z-21 (an X-33 car) didn't get the pinstripes.

What year car?
3708  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro Z/28 front sway bar and power steering bracket on: April 06, 2006, 09:39:00 AM
Sounds like the car you're looking at has an older aftermarket (probably ADDCO) sway bar, and the guy on eBay doesn't know what he's talking about (as usual).
3709  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ride Height Measurements on: April 05, 2006, 11:15:22 AM
'69 ride heights are specified in terms of design front and rear suspension heights (spring deflection) and rocker-to-ground heights; there's a chart in the UPC 0 section (sheet A10) of the '69 Assembly Manual that shows how to measure them and gives the numbers for each tire size/option condition.
3710  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Instrument panel question(s) on: April 04, 2006, 12:53:47 PM
I have two real quick questions involving the restoration of my instrument panel.

1. I canít seem to be able to get the front light knob off. Does it unscrew??
2. I canít get the entire left ďastro ventĒ mechanism to release. I canít find the screws?

Any tip on actually taking the entire instrument panel display off so I can clean and restore it and putting it back on would be a huge help.

Thanks,

Nick p.


The back side of the left astro vent housing is a slip-fit with a foam seal into the Fisher Body duct attached to the plenum; it will pull straight out.
3711  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 Z28 engine dates on: April 04, 2006, 12:47:28 PM
Engine assembly date (stamp pad date) typically precedes car final assembly date by 2-6 weeks, although there are many exceptions; the block casting date must (obviously) precede the pad stamp date.

That's not a factory sway bar - all '69 Camaros used an 11/16" bar (except for the 13/16" bar on COPO 9737's); the end of the factory bar was nowhere near the upper ball joint (see photo below). The rear power steering pump bracket goes on top of the motormount, not between the mount and the block, as shown in the Assembly Manual.

The fan clutch code is only shown on the Chassis Broadcast Copy.

Ed, I don't have the part number or broadcast code info for 68's; I just know that both the Eaton and Schweitzer clutches were released as optional usages across all car lines in the 60's, as neither supplier could supply the total volume requirements.

Hey John,

I wouldn't have believed it if you didn't post it.  BTW. did Jerry tell you the bolt was the wrong color?   Roll Eyes

Nope Smiley

Sounds like a standard car with some RS badging and Z28 stripes; tell us more when you get it home.
3717  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Proper plating for hardware - J52 balance valve bracket & bolt @ '69 SS on: April 01, 2006, 01:19:28 PM
Here's a photo of the bracket and bolt - I've had the booster and valve bracket restored by Jerry MacNeish, but the attaching bolt is the untouched original.

The coil-type unit in the top group of photos is the Eaton clutch, and the one in the lower group of photos is the plate-type Schweitzer clutch; although their part numbers were different, both were used interchangeably in all Chevrolet applications, depending on which one happened to be stocked on the line at the time. I don't have a '68 A.I.M., but you'll see the interchangeable usage in the '69 A.I.M.; both part numbers are shown, with the second part number "opt." (optional usage); both of them were calibrated the same way, met Engineering specifications for that application, and either one is "correct".
3719  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: carb heat shields on: March 31, 2006, 01:29:46 PM
I've never seen one on a car - have only seen a photo of one alleged to be a service TSB part.
3720  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine pad....painted or not on: March 31, 2006, 01:26:42 PM
Engine stamp pads weren't painted - they had a piece of masking tape on them when they went through the paint booth.
