Does anyone know, what size slicks fit under a stock 1969 Camaro SS body??  I will be mounting them on 15 x 7 rally wheels.  Thanks!

Hi!  Thanks for your time on commenting on my issue.  We replaced thermostat with a 180 F one.  It's a "high flow one".  I have a 1969 Camaro SS/RS 397/375
car.  Comp. ratio is 11.0 to 1.  Pretty much all factory set-up.  No serp. belts being used here....factory originals only.  It could be a bad sending unit.  I think I'll change it out just so I know what I have here.  Actually, yesterday, we installed a new "pusher fan" in front of radiator, for added insurance when car is driven.  I have a 4 core, 4 row radiator in it now.  Well, this is where I'm at Ban617.  Any other ideas will be welcome.  Thanks for chiming in.    Don

bcmiller.....My Camaro ran good last season...mid-way in the gauge.  Car ran good.  Now when it approaches the 3/4 point into the gauge, car goes crazy.  Won't idle right, shifts hard, etc.  This block is really touchy.  Major headache.......

This is to JKZ27......Heat indicator was the stock temp gauge.  Went all the way into the "RED Zone"  We are really stumped here on this heat issue.  We don't want to throw good money at this problem, and still have the same issue.  I read that article about "timing and Vacuum"......a lot of good advice here...may try some of those ideas.  Thank you to everyone who chimed in on this issue.   If you have some solid info, please post it.  I need to get my 69 Camaro up and running again.   Don

"IN" is the hose at bottom of radiator, and "OUT" would be hose at the top of radiator.

There is about a inch between back of radiator, and front of fan.  New clutch fan just put in.  We did not use a "spacer.  Nothing came in box when new one arrived.  ?

Stinger 69   I have flow in radiator tank.  Is a "moderate flow" normal??  Or should water pump be moving more water faster???   I guess question is, what is a good flow rate???  Also, radiator is a repo one.

To All....We used unfared heat gun...185-190 going in and coming out.  Orginal fan shroud in place.  Changed thermostat to a high flow one from Jegs (high perf) still no good.  Added additive to coolant to disapat some heat, no good.  removed thermostat, and still no good.  Over heats driving and idling.  We think radiator has something wrong inside.  I think with this major problem, a Harrison tank should be installed.  These repo's don't preform at all.    Additional advice welcome.  Thanks guys

Hi Guys!!  Need some direction on a 69 Camaro BB that is over-heating bad.  I found the clutch fan touching back of radiator.  Corrected this, but still is HOT. Have flow in tank that was changed out during resto.  Suspect water pump may be culprit.  What is the best way to trouble shoot this issue???  All responses would be appreciated.  Thanks!   Don

Hey Guys...gotta problem.  My BB Chevy Camaro engine is running "HOT".  Changed thermostat, coolant good.  Clutch does one check this to see if its working properly?  You should be able to hear it come on and off....correct???   Please comment with suggestions.  Thanks!!  Don

I want to thank everyone who replied to my ad request.  A lot of good info came out that I wasn't aware of.  I just enjoy posting a issue or question here because this site is where all the "Camaro Gurus"  hang.  Again, thank to all.

Originality / Re: 69 Gas Caps revisited - original Cap?
« on: January 17, 2017, 04:14:15 AM »
Cap from my 01C Norwood '69 RS (VIN #19N581767; final assembly on or about 20-21 Jan 1969) is shown in this and the next post.  My cap is the same as the one in the first posting in this thread from Dave69x33.

As far as I know it is original to my car.  Still had some of the dealer undercoating overspray on it.   I had to clean off some of the overspray in order to get a decent pic. Undercoating covers the bottom of my gas tank and some of the filler neck with overspray on the cap. 

First pic here.  Secon pic in next post. 

It is marked with the stamped words "VENTED" and "ANTI SURGE".  There is also a stamped "S" in the center of the cap and a manufacturer's mark stamped on one of the ears (pic in next post).
I read somewhere that "original" gas caps had "raised" lettering. ???

Kurt, Hi!  I started this discussion on the "cowl plenum" set-up vs. "the cowl induction" set-up.  You've been around these cars along time and probably have seen it all, talked to different guys with success stories and there failures.  What is your take on the "cowl plenum" set-up on a 1969 Camaro SS 396?  Would this move be a no-no?  Or would it be a way to create some cheap HP?  Please share your thought with me on this cause I'm on the fence about doing this change to my 69.  I currently have the ZL-2 set-up  Thanks Kurt!    Don
