Every plant built either Pilot or Pre-Production units - Pilots were months before launch, Pre-Production units were weeks before launch. Don't know anything about 2nd-gen records, although I wish I still had the '70 Z/28 I bought brand new in early 1970 - ran like a scalded dog!  Grin

Don't even THINK about putting a Saginaw behind a big-block; durability doesn't come cheap - get a '66-up Muncie with a 1" countershaft.

The purple wire from the ignition switch goes to the "S" terminal on the solenoid to energize the starter; somewhere that circuit has high resistance and isn't delivering a full 12 volts to the "S" terminal. If it's an automatic, check the contacts in the neutral safety switch. If it's a manual OR an automatic, check the terminals in the inboard multiple connector on the engine compartment side of the fuse block for the purple wire. There are no thermal switches in that circuit - it just runs from the back of the ignition switch, through the fuse block connectors, to the solenoid.

Don't know for sure - there were variations in the brown color and texture; I doubt if anyone can say conclusively that any one appearance is "correct" to the exclusion of others.

Unless it was ordered specifically with deluxe belts (which were a stand-alone option and weren't part of any other interior package), it would have black standard seat/shoulder belts.

Trans isn't original to the car. Re-check the casting date - "8 H 28" doesn't make sense.

The link doesn't work for me, and I'm not that familiar with the 2nd-gen info, but 02D doesn't make sense to me for an L500001 VIN. Pilot cars were serialized beginning with 001, and were built 12-16 weeks prior to start of regular production. There were no Canadian-built 2nd-gen Camaros - all were built at Norwood and Van Nuys, just like the first-gen cars.

Don't know what year you have, but in '67 the solenoid cap was dark brown Bakelite, with this molded in the front face:

3864  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: The "perfect" orange on: June 12, 2006, 09:31:54 AM
Is there a difference between the 67 and 69 engine colors?

No. They were the same.
3865  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Original Tire Manufacturer on: June 12, 2006, 09:31:01 AM
There were multiple tire suppliers - don't know the Camaro lineup, but as an example, blackwall and whitewall tire suppliers for the '67 Corvette 7.75-15's were Firestone (Deluxe Champion), Goodyear (Power Cushion), Uniroyal (Laredo), B.F. Goodrich (Silvertown 660 and 770), and General (Jet-Air II). I expect the Camaro lineup was similar - perhaps someone else has the exact listing.

Thank you for the response John.I just bought "the Breakerless conversion system" from Rick's.And in the Instruction it is mention

this ignition is designed to work with a ballast resistor.

There is no ceramic resistance or anything else to add since the resistance is part of that white wire.
Is that correct?

Yes, that's correct - the cloth-covered white wire has the resistance required; previous to 1967, a separate ceramic-encased ballast resistor was used.
3867  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 396 clearence problem on: June 11, 2006, 10:21:59 AM
Someone else will comment on the engine mounts. The BB sits off-center to the right to get more clearance from the exhaust manifold to the steering gear, so the fan opening in the BB fan shroud is also offset to the right relative to the radiator; the SB shroud won't work with the BB engine location.

From the photos, it appears that you might have a problem with exhaust heat on the brake pipes and valve being located directly above your manifolds or headers; the production plumbing was all located OUTBOARD of the master cylinder to get it away from exhaust heat.
3868  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Big Block pulleys??? on: June 11, 2006, 10:06:10 AM
The 454 is externally-balanced, but the overall thickness of the damper to the pulley mounting face is the same as that of the 427; the 454 will accept the same accessory drive components as the 427 with no issues.

That clip is secured under the second-from-the-bottom bellhousing-to-block bolt.
3870  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: solenoid on: June 11, 2006, 09:54:48 AM
During normal operation, the coil gets 7-8 volts through the cloth-covered resistance wire that feeds it from the ignition switch, which improves point life. During cranking while starting, the wire from the "R" terminal on the solenoid to the (+) coil terminal feeds a full 12 volts from the solenoid to the coil, bypassing the resistance wire, providing more voltage to the coil for starting. When the engine starts and the solenoid disengages, the coil (+) is again fed by the resistance wire.
