Thanx for that link.

Has CRG done any research topucs on this?

LA vs Norwood?
17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Kelsey Hayes rims for 1969 on: January 19, 2013, 08:33:37 PM
Been tinkering with this thought in my head...

When a 1969 Camaro is being ordered, then built along the assembly lines, How long did it take K-H to make the rims to get to the car?

I wish to ask the timeline and process for rims to reach tires then reach the car being assembled.

Is there any timeline differences for the same questions above pertaining to Van Nuys vs Norwood plants?

It appears to have been a very nice restoration 15 yrs ago (1997 or so) on what appears to have been a very nice original Z28/RS (probably a different color than black!).   
Seems the trim tag was changed (repro?)
The surface rust is what you get when you 'restore' your car and leave metal parts unprotected.   
If I work on a part of my car, I don't like to leave the metal unprotected;
if I have to clean it once, I want to protect it better than the factory did.
Yes, it's a little dirty from some driving and has the age of a 15 yr old restoration.

Note:  Most car clubs judging standards today allow use of clear or semi-flat black paint on such parts...

No comment on the TT, but I wouldnt be surprised.
Rust or surface corrosion persists on any car, for the most part.
Ive restored many parts on my car years ago.
Even for the fact that my car has been garaged for years, corrosion has appeared slightly... even after correctly replating items.
Moisture in the surrounding air can rapidly advance the corrosion process.
Not sure how long this car has been in Washington state,
but I'd bet the Ocean air is contributing to the advancing surafce rust you are seeing on this car.

I had some tooling made to replicate the rivets installed.
Did it to my PaceCar ball joints...

Here is 2 Pontiac Distributor Cam pieces that I have here.
Both show the CW.
Notice the advance window (is this the correct name for this area???)
The 7(22) has a smaller window vs. the 5(32)

Im not a Pontiac guy,
I do know a very succesful pontiac stock racer who may be able to help.
I just picked up a Pontiac housing; no use for it but something to compare with?

CCW may be correct.

I myself wish to further explore this.
The one I am currently dealing with "appears" to be a local rebuild unit.
This distributor is not the correct stamped housing to my vehicle.
I compared it to an unmolested original piece, having the same ID stamping, and have found some differences between the 2.

The cam piece is a CCW 730.
The original unmolested distributor has a CCW 522.
Secondly, I am seeing a shaft with a different top cam vs the original unit.
The counter weights, in relationship to this cam, doesnt seem to be matching what I see in the unmolested distributor.
Why is this?
Disclaimer : I admit I know nothing about these, so please be understanding to my desired learning curve!

Is there a website or a distinguished individual who is in the know on how to translate all of these?
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Distributor Cam Piece on: June 02, 2012, 04:21:36 PM
Thanx !

Is there a listing anywhere to determine each distributor cam piece?

I am not an expert on these; just trying to learn how to understand them and how to determine what each piece equals to.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Distributor Cam Piece on: May 29, 2012, 01:10:26 AM
I've been kinda playing around with GM distributor cam pieces.
I have seen pieces with a 7 initial # followed by a degree #.
732 for example
32 = 32* (degrees)
532 for example
32 = 32* (degrees)
when we see a 7 or a 5 preceeding the numerical; what does the 7 & the 5 designate?

You should be fine.
If you are in a points restoration event being Judged,
Then I would suspect that your lines be as similar as originally made.
Your color coded ends will need to be correct, in the same way as original if you are being judged.

I took my original lines in to be replated.
The fittings were then "pickled"; a term for dippIng the ends to replace those with the correct coloring.

I did mine over 13 years ago.
Not sure who does this process today.

Hey all...

I just built up my 3'rd M20.

I purchased this unit decribed as being rebuilt by a very reputible rebuilder.

I found many used & damaged items inside when we popped the side cover open and after initial teardown.
Needless to say, I was not very happy!  Sad
The rebuild cost me, but after proper inspection and replacing with new parts,
I now have a really sweet M20.

Bad parts :
Cluster shaft badly pitted and worn
Countershaft Roller Spacer/Washers for some reason were indented by the roller bearings
Synchros were used
Clutch Hubs were both bad
Speedo Plastic gears were worn and broken
Maindrive Bearing was used
Worn engagement teeth
Reverse, 3'rd, and 4'th had damages to the actual teeth tips
Tail Housing threads had helicoils; typical
Main Case ended up being OK after many hours of detailing

1'st and 2'nd gear both were OK, oddly.
I ended up replacing all of the above parts with brand new pieces.
Some Italian, some typical rebuild parts.

I am going to post up a few images of the 3'rd gear and 4'th / Input shaft.
Someone before me owning this M20 ground down some of the engagement teeth.
Both engagement ground locations were at 6 & 12 o'clock postions.
I ended up replacing both with Italian Gears.

Can you folks tell me why someone did this to these gears?

The M20 completed; sorry for the fuzzy image.

---> RPOZ11, is this the original screw?  What is the plant and build date of your car?

Screw : YES

March 1969
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Muncie restoration on: January 04, 2012, 02:41:24 AM
Found another shot of my M20.

Having some stands made out of aluminum.
Hope to have those posted soon.

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct cowl hood relay screw on: January 04, 2012, 02:37:01 AM
I originally replated this screw but as you can see,
over the course of time,
It has began to build up some surface rust.

Hope this helps....

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct cowl hood relay screw on: January 02, 2012, 03:41:08 PM
If I find some time later I will see what mine looks like & let you know...
