46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: am/fm radio repair on: October 15, 2013, 10:11:23 PM
Hans L, so is your radio dated February 3RD 1968?? ... Danny

I have no idea where there is a date code on the radio. Curious where it is.

Per the Chevelle Radio Tech site,  it decodes as a '69 AM FM and is correct for a Camaro, if I interpet their decoding correctly.   I have not been able to find a site or place that tells where the date code is.  Clearly the ID tag on the restored version is a reproduction tag.   

From the Chevelle Site:

"Example: the correct model number for a 1969 Chevelle AM/FM pushbutton radio is: 91BFP1.

Using the decoding information from above, you might be confused by the "B" in the model number since "B" indicates "B-body" or in other words, a full-sized Chevy. So why is it correct for a Chevelle or mid-size "A-body" ?

The answer is some of the same audio equipment was shared among different Chevrolet vehicle lines. A full-size (or B-body) Chevy such as a 1969 Impala shared the same AM/FM mono radio with such vehicles as the Camaro and the Chevelle. To keep things simple and costs down, B-body radios such as the AM/FMs were often installed in other vehicles. "B" can also be thought of as the "default" radio to be installed when a vehicle line did not have its very own line of radios. In fact, many Chevrolet vehicles "borrowed" B-body audio equipment at different times in production."

Hans L.   What did this guy charge you for the radio resto job???    Don

The last generation Camaro was fine...when they "tweaked" this time, they forgot about the "first gen" Camaros. 
In my opinion, "old school" style and designs sell.  When its all said and done, they'll go back to square one. Stay tuned Camaro lovers!

Ed, Could you check your "data base" and see if my VIN # is in it??  If it isn't, could you let me know how it can be added??  Here's my 1969 Camaro's Vin # 124379N611808.   Thank You!   Don
50  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Dash Light illumination when starting engine on: January 19, 2013, 09:39:40 PM
Hi Gang!!!  I'm new here so bear with me.  I own a 1969 Camaro SS/RS.  I've noticed other Camaros that when started, the generator and temperature dash lights come on when starting the engine.  My car has been re-stored and the lights are intact and have been tested  OK also.  Question: where do I started to look to correct this??  My car also has "console gauges".  I've seen cars with console gauges, and there cars dash lights, light up too.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks!!   Don
51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Clutch grind (reverse) on: July 13, 2012, 09:44:43 PM
Hi Guys!  I own a 1969 Camaro SS 396/375 car with a 4-speed M-22.  Just finished a frame off restoration on it.  Ever since I statrted
driving it, when I try and use reverse, it grinds.  Adjusted clutch numerous times.  Last move is at 1/2' to 1' free play on pedal.  It also appears that when car get hot, grinding seems more apparent.   It's fine when car is cold.  Any advise would be helpful.

Thanks for the reply but, when looking at the pad with the naked eye, you can see the "cast surface" of the pad.  Pad's I've seen that have been decked,leave swirl tool marks on pad.  This
is what I have, and I'm leaving it like this.  Car has gone thru a frame-off restoration.  This may be my last post seems like you have to have a perfect car to chat here.  Later......
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: "KC" stamped Big Block on: June 12, 2011, 07:07:13 PM
Kurt, I dis-agree!!!!   I talked to Jerry McNeish and he said back then anything was possible. 
Does everything have tobe "ganged" or be 100% straight tobe correct?Huh  I say no. I've seen
alot of stampings that are not straight or ganged on many cars over the years and all these
owners claim to have correct blocks.  I say more research needed  on this topic. 
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: "KC" stamped Big Block on: June 11, 2011, 07:40:09 PM
Gary,  I have pic of pad stamp with the letter's "KC".   I want to post them, but having trouble
up-loading them.  I'll keep trying.  Don

Hi!  I'm new here and post was not removed by me.  I joined the group for further knowledge in the 1969 Camaro hobby.  I grew up with this era car and have always admired the car for its power and looks.  I have pics of the pad on the supposedly "KC" stamped block.  Just having a hard time "up-loading them.  I got to thinking, just say block isn't a true "KC" stamped block.  Why would someone stamp that particular "lettering"Huh  Who knows..........otherwise, I believe
block could be a "JH" block, 396/manual trans.  Block pad has paint on it and alternator is in the way, but I'm going to get a closer look at it Sunday.  We just finished this car, 7 year project, all orginal correct car.   Don

I'm just stating what's "stamped" on my big block.  I've read alot of report findings in books and articles alike, and there were alot of Camaros built with odd ball options. I doubt everything was doucumented that was going out the door.  I have a X-22 Camaro that is stamped on the front pad "KC" and which is not a "re-stamp".  I seems all the comments are being made on what everybody has read, well, I have the real thing
right in front of me.  Even on the car shows on TV, they say that alot of different cars were made and not accounted for.  Who knows I guess.......
