Restoration / Re: Stripping paint from '68 console gauge cover?
« on: May 23, 2017, 02:44:42 PM »
Going to sound weird but soaking it in a crock pot of soapy water on low and slow heat will release the paint and hopefully not be hot enough to warp the plastic. Or just try soaking it in a bucket of hot soapy water, changing the water often enough to keep some heat or leave it in the sun all afternoon.

You can bench or semi bench test your LFW Module. You need a potentiometer capable of zero to 100 Ohm's, and if out of the vehicle a test light to act as the FUEL warning light. (battery operated test light is easier)

When triggered by low Ohm's the module drops ground onto the yellow lead so the bulb which always has power, then has a path to light up.

To test the LFW Module in place by dialing down to less than 10 Ohms (eighth of a tank.) if there is no ground on the yellow wire at that point lower toward zero and see if you get the ground on the yellow activating the light. Make sure you have power on the bulb lead and the bulb is in good order as well.

AS with many GM parts there were a couple suppliers so there can be a variance in color and stamping but that looks good to me. Shake it and if it sounds like a slight rattle (mercury moving inside the capsule) then it is factory. :)

Just to rule it out I would also double check that the cable in question is the correct one (length) for that slider. Double check that the sheath tab is secured in the right location as well.

I have a NOS set someplace for a 69 I can measure if you need.

Seen multiple carrier stickers often, Just assumed the label gun feed two but usually only the top one has the rubber stamp date code.
The date code on the Tachometer is not off the track. They used the purplish grocery store stamp ink most of the time.

Very sad to see this thread. Had hoped that no news was good news after his recent hospital stay this fall. Miracles do happen so praying for his health and keeping his family and friends here and over at Team Camaro in my heart.

Thoughts and prayers John. Get well soon.

Originality / Re: 'yellow light' AM/FM radio?
« on: September 21, 2016, 11:44:46 PM »
I seem to remember an hi-fi article I ran across a few years back that noted the differences in automotive radios and in particular GM being at the cutting edge at the time that affordable FM sets came into our cars. The Blue light and Yellow light models had a different crystal tuning set which apparently had something to do with weaker FM stations being locked into frequency receivership better with the new design. I've never opened one up so can't say this is true for sure or why the indicator light would have changed since the unit sticker would have clued any repair person into which unit it was.

No problem. Beautiful Camaro. You should enter her in the Ride of The Month contest over at Team Camaro :)

General Discussion / Re: Trying to close deal on 69 Camaro-Title Issues

Indiana BMV title page says

The certificate of title must be applied for within 45 days after the vehicle is purchased or otherwise acquired. If the certificate of title is applied for after the 45 days have passed, an administrative penalty will be charged.

If you are buying a vehicle, ensure that the seller has completed in their entirety both the seller and purchaser sections on the certificate of title before visiting a license branch to apply for a new certificate of title. The seller should remove the license plate from the vehicle at the time of the transaction. The purchaser is responsible for obtaining a new certificate of title, registration, and license plate.

So I would assume if he requests a title from them as required by law - and as I read it he should have done so back in the day up to 45 days after he purchased it,  regardless of it being used for racing only as the vehicle is not considered an exempt vehicle due to it being a vin issued vehicle, not a custom specialized piece of machinery, or an off road vehicle by their definitions. They will issue an updated title in his name. He may need to present his bill of sale and the death certificate, but that is not your problem or issue. It is his if he ever intends to sell the vehicle. In any event he should call the BMV to get the particulars in his case.

Once he has legal title to the vehicle in his name he can then sign the title as seller and you can take legal ownership paying the associated fees. Looks very straight forward and as already said they will most likely not give a hoot as long as he is paying the title fees and administration fines for being over 45 days. Money talks.

Nice ride Guenther. Yes you can replace the OIL / BRAKE decal on the speedometer with FUEL/ BRAKE version available at most of the Camaro on-line parts places. I would check the console gauges to see if the Low Fuel Warning Module is even installed. The yellow lead runs up to the FUEL light. In 1967 the LFWM sent power to the yellow lead to light the bulb. If you find yours is still wired as an OIL warning light. The conversion is easy to hook up a 1967 LFWM.

Well taking a quick look at their on-line product information, they do sell the old non compliant VOC formulas on some products including the professional 5 gallon dip pail, but you can't buy it if you live in CA or NJ. :)

The devil in writing is always in the details and the semantics, and knowing your audience and their expected baseline knowledge of the subject mater you are writing about. But like so much in the world these days not many folks take the time to engage and interact and if it is longer then 120 characters they move on.

Just a heads up I have successfully paced Gary back into traffic at Team Camaro.
If anyone else is still on the shoulder with new login issues, flag me down here in a PM.
