271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z/28 metal vacuum line correct? on: April 03, 2012, 03:09:20 PM
I see the accelerator rod. What's that black linkage that's hooked to the throttle?  It looks like a kick down cable to me. That's why I thought it was an auto.
Good question, and who knows. I have only seen the mechanical kick downs mounted to the front. The thread where the pic came from was on aftermarket springs so I just assumed it was one since the factory spring is not there. The owner said it was an L48 with M21 but maybe he borrowed the pic from someone else.

The NHTSA only lists one recall for the Camaro in 69 - Engine Mounts see link:
http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/recallresults.cfm?start=1&SearchType=DrillDown&type=VEHICLE&year=1969&make=CHEVROLET&model=CAMARO&component_id=0&TYPENUM=1&SUBMIT=Retrieve%20Recalls&summary=true&prod_id=1483&PrintVersion=YES

other recalls 67-69 GM (not division/model specific):
Rally Wheel trim ring clips
Hot Slot intake manifold / Rochester Carburetor failures

Thanks for the picture and information. ...  This picture is an auto. ...


No the picture I posted for the L48 is a Manual vehicle. As stated brake and RS headlights take vacuum from the intake manifold nipple behind the carb base. Use a T if you have both, single L id only Power Brakes. Vacuum advance is the port pictured on the front drivers side.  

The large port at the base of the carb base is for your PCV valve hose.

I don't have an picture of an automatic vehicle, but it would have a kick-down mounted to the throttle linkage and would be using the pass side vacuum port with the blue cap to drive the heat stove in the snorkel.
275  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Has anyone used this Trunk Spatter paint? on: March 31, 2012, 08:28:17 PM
I recently read (I forgot which group) that there is a difference between LOS and NOR trunk paint hues and texture. I haven't compared my two cars yet to see if that was the case but I figured I would let you know there is supposedly a difference. Mike

It was either here http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1960.0 or TC http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=205287&highlight=correct+trunk+paint
or maybe first gens but to answer your question: Yes the LOS/VN looks more like silly string. NOR looks like standard paint splatter.  

Norwood are more defined blobs of color (white or aqua and green based on year) while LOS trunks are base with "stringy" strands of color.

There is a great photo comparison on page 47 of Tony Hunter & Brian Henderson's "How to Restore your Camaro 1967-1969" of the 1966-67 color mix.

Not trying to Highjack this thread .... I've saw it in pictures in 2 different places and the AIM looks too fuzzy on that page.

Its a non illustrated item on RPO L48 but the notes say same as L35 where it is illustrated on page 280, view B
277  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Gardner Exhaust Rusting from the Inside/Install Stainless? on: March 31, 2012, 08:38:11 AM
Thank you all for your insight.  I have discussed the matter with Gardner and they now do not have the "bleed" holes in the bottom of their resonators and mufflers.  Accordingly I have purchased two new resonators and a transverse muffler.  Gardner indicates that they are aluminized inside and should not rust.  The rest of the system appears to be solid so I am going to install the mufflers and hope that the problem is solved.
How old was the system? Was any of the cost eaten by Gardner?

Not trying to Highjack this thread but Would someone post a picture of where the "69 4 speed L48 Vacuum Advance Line hooks up to the carburetor? I've saw it in pictures in 2 different places and the AIM looks too fuzzy on that page.

I just pulled my carb off for cleaning and rebuild, and some intake detailing but here is a pic from the web of an L48 and 7029203 DY carb 4 speed Muncie.

The set-up is a reversed "J" hooking around the Q-Jet base at the front pass side then connecting at the drivers side front ported vacuum source (no vacuum at idle).

Just a note in research I have found that some Corvette and Chevelle guys use the pass side vacuum port (in the photo capped with a blue plug) which is for automatic transmission vehicles to drive the heat stove flap in the air cleaner snorkel, to drive the dizzy vacuum advance. But this requires different weights in the dizzy and setting the tuning to match. So if yours is already hooked up there you can go back to factory setup but you will have to set your timing to base line first.

The factory front drivers side port only gets vacuum as the primaries and secondaries are used not the idle.

On the L48 with Q-jet it was a combination of metal tube bent to go around the carb base and white striped hose on either end connecting to carb port and vacuum advance port. I think it was called "pipe spark" 3870334 in the AIM. http://www.classicindustries.com/camaro/parts/k0054a.html

FYI the Delco Remy website lets you check any Delco Remy starters, & alternators from the past and list the replacement part numbers over the years.

Here is your part number listing:

281  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: RS vacuum headlight help on: February 26, 2012, 12:32:44 AM
Well not really. After considerable discussion over a TC a year or so ago we all discovered that actually looking at the 68 and 69 AIM straightened out many misconceptions about the vacuum headlight systems.

The 1969 "Vacuum Control Relay Assemblies" were plumbed like a traffic light green on the bottom and red at the top. See attached photo of page 463 from the 69 AIM. Actuators were red in the front green in the rear

However Original 68 Vacuum Control Relay Assemblies were just the opposite with green at the top, and red hose at the bottom - see page 431 of the 68 AIM    Actuators were red in the front green in the rear.

The repro valves on the market manufactured by Classic HQ now are marketed as 68-69 generic and use the 69 design red on top so if using one on a 68 you have to watch the code and connect the hoses like a 69 red on top green on bottom otherwise the doors work in reverse. Also check your activators for red front green rear otherwise doors will also work in reverse.

LOL very good. Sometimes you eat the Bear and sometimes the Bear eats you.  What is the service called?
283  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Where is the temp sensor located? on: February 16, 2012, 12:37:34 AM
Yeah Dean yours is not in the head, only 69 I think, maybe late 68's.
284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Cowl Induction Installation Instructions on: February 16, 2012, 12:36:13 AM
Yeah and that's why forums like this and TC are the best way to reward these folks with outstanding customer service with recommendations.
285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: "Hot Slot" equipped cast iron intake manifold modifications.. on: February 16, 2012, 12:34:27 AM
I've read that the metal plate against the throttle base doesn't seal good in some situation when there is a slight warp in the baseplate.
I've been using the gasket-metal-gasket stack for years with success (along with plugged slot holes).
The extra ~.030" from the second gasket made no difference in the choke function at all.


Mike

If the Hot Slot is still active the fiber gasket will roast out in no time leading to leaks. The tin conforms to the surface and doesn't leak if its is the right gasket. It has to be the thin one not the 1/4 inch pseudo spacer.
