271  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
273  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:

277  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?
279  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.
280  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.
281  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.

Did you use the T2 form or the T3?
283  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Cowl Induction Installation Instructions on: February 13, 2012, 08:09:47 AM
Ive got the book open to the page now


this is great since i can see a clip i am missing.

I did call a reseller and they are emailing me a page of the instructions to review, they didnt want to send the whole thing

you all are awesome as always

Typical - they sell you a kit, it is missing parts and instructions and they don't want send replacements - I assume unless you repay for them.
284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: "Hot Slot" equipped cast iron intake manifold modifications.. on: February 13, 2012, 08:02:57 AM
If you have the right part numbers the height should not be an issue. The "tin plate" goes on top of the manifold then the fiber gasket then the carb. Once upon a time you could buy one gasket that sandwiched the plate and the fiber in one - maybe at Acme Auto Parts.
285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Searching for My Old 67 RS/SS396 on: February 12, 2012, 12:56:25 AM
You are almost there. Now you either get lucky and search State and local county Tax records for the vin or hire a investigator to pound the pavement chasing paper. Also enlist any active Camaro Clubs in that area.

Yes no database version available today is going to give you the names and addresses it has been scrubbed from the government clearinghouse version which is the direct descendant of the original NICB database. The database falls under the Federal Privacy Act.

Most Law Enforcement subscriptions to the system will just confirm it is not stolen or scrapped and provide no history. Most departments privacy and ethics regulation will prevent in-depth running of vins for personal use by any officer in Auto Theft divisions not involved in an active criminal investigation of that vin.

On the bright side NICB has a warehouse full of yellowing documents and microfiche shipping records slowly being entered into the database. These are the records they used to sell direct to the public.  So over a period of time shipping records having been sanitized to government standards removing all identities and addresses may enter the public sector again.
