46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Question on exhaust manifold tube support on: February 20, 2014, 11:18:53 AM
I am trying to install D&Rs 2-1/4 exhaust system (non-chambered) and have a question because this kit had no instructions and I have never done this before.

How tight do the extensions fit inside the pipes? Mine seem like I would have to press them in for them to fit inside the pipes.

I am talking about these small extension tubes that support the donut into the exhaust manifold seen here:

If the parts are made properly, the extensions should drop right in without having to force them.

Thanks Paul!
What about the AC box is different from a BB car or a non SS car?

Both halves of the engine-side box are shaped differently, and the external refirigerant plumbing and valving is different on BB cars vs. SB cars.

Carpet ID tag - carpets for Van Nuys (and South Gate and Fremont) were sourced locally by Fisher Body on the west coast instead of shipping them from the midwest.

Thanks John. Would it be possible that the housing is just not making good ground to the ash tray. A simple twist or turn may help?



Could be - the inner housing grounds to the ashtray at its lip at the front, and the outer housing grounds to the ashtray at its serrated flange on the back side of the ashtray panel. Make sure the outer housing is "cutting paint" on the back of the panel.

The lighter housing grounds through the ashtray; the lighter center terminal has power all the time, and when you push in the lighter, current flows from that center terminal through the lighter heating element to the lighter housing to ground.

When shooting tag photos, it helps A LOT to use your camera's "macro" feature (the little flower symbol) so the image is in focus.  :-)
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 pacesetter sale on: February 15, 2014, 12:15:23 PM
Does any body know in April  67 when you got floor mounted shifter at no charge for your manual 3 speed transmission (part of Pacesetter sale) if you got the heavy duty 3 speed trans or if they put floor shift on # 3858986 Saginaw standard trans?

I don't know, but I can't imagine that they'd include a premium-cost heavy-duty Muncie transmission free with a low-performance powertrain just to get a floor shift.

54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: rear signal issue on: February 11, 2014, 09:13:21 PM
The passenger rear signal works sometimes and sometimes not so I tracked the dark green wire to the terminal under the steering column and jiggled it and it works so I am guessing its at the terminal.  Question is how are the wires put into the terminal?  I don't see any screws to hold them in?  are the just shoved in there?  Thanks for input

The metal terminal on the wire has a small "tang" bent up in the center which engages behind a "step" molded into the connector body to retain the terminal in the connector. You can "unlock" the tang with a tiny skinny screwdriver, in the slot in the end of the connector.

<< Do they plate using the copper-nickel-chrome process? So many shops leave out the copper step these days. >>

Leaving off the copper base was the original GM process - GM "factory chrome" was only nickel and chrome.

Looks like it - clearly not a GM wheel.
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What is it ? on: February 08, 2014, 06:22:55 PM
16" x 4" are the midyear Corvette dimensions, but that's not a Corvette steering wheel; I doubt if its a GM wheel at all with the sharp/abrupt bend where the spokes join the rim.

JohnZ definitely did a nice thing with the Generac.. Smiley    I considered the same unit when I built my home, but I let build schedule and $$ pressures put it off til 'later'...  and we all know how 'later' goes.. Smiley

JohnZ:  Would you change anything about that if you were doing it over?  the size? or brand? or ??

Nope, the unit has been quite satisfactory, and has paid for itself more than once. It starts itself up once a week for a ten-minute diagnostic run, and in eleven years all it has required is one starter and a battery.

<<I hope you have a safe way to stay warm; be very careful with fuel-based heaters inside.  I KNOW how no power sucks, as I've got more than a week twice, once in/after an ice storm, and another 3 yrs ago after the Tornado day.  A generator is a good thing to have ... but generally you have to HAVE it Before the problem hits and the stores sell out. >>

Been there, done that - installed a 20-KW Generac fully-automatic natural gas standby generator system in the summer of 2003 ( 3 weeks before the famous 3-day "northern grid" failure - timing is everything  Smiley ) Has kept us nice and comfy many times since then when DTE (Detroit Edison), our Mickey-Mouse electric utility, has gone dead, and we don't even need to be home.  Grin

A video of that plant was posted before.
JohnZ explained the debacle behind it and how much money was wasted on it....

I'd be very interested in reading JohnZ's comments re that plant, if anyone can provide a link..  I've spent some time searching and haven't been able to find it...

I tried several advanced searches keying on "Ferdinand Piech" or "Phaeton", but got no results - dunno if the search function is working or not.
