Al, many thanks for your reply.
Not sure if your Camaro was run with the Corvette disc upgrade, but I thought you might have some thoughts on this.
 I spent today setting up a twelve bolt posi rearend with Corvette discs. The axles were apparently run with no regard for minimum end play to prevent brake pad knock back. Factory JL8 specs call for endplay somewhere around 0.003", these were close to 0.050".

I have shimmed the clutch packs to the max, and used the thickest  C clips I can get on the axle, and the best I can get is 0.007"-0.009". What do you think? Maybe I'm fussing over a few thousandths that really won't even be noticed.
I also upgraded to the 800# "Penske" preload springs. They may be compressing the clutch packs a bit more than the factory 200# springs would. The spring difference may in itself negate the factory recommended spec.

Al, many thanks for sharing your recollections with us. I especially value your hands-on experiences. In this day of commercially "prepped" cars, it is indeed a rare opportunity for all of us to hear from the guy with grease on his hands!
 I personally have many  technical questions to ask about your car. Any memories about weak links in the engine, transmission, or even setting up the rear end would be appreciated. Maybe some suspension tricks too.
Thanks
Robert

Jon is an exemplary individual who is an  enormous asset to this forum and to our hobby. He has been more than gracious in sharing his vast historical collection with all of us and when someone has a special request, he has never been bashful to share.
We are all, indeed, fortunate to have him leading this Trans-Am forum.

Great story Charlie! Thank you for sharing.

Most interesting is the front wheels/hubs. It appears to have had six lugs. Very heavy duty....  or maybe just an illusion of the photo?

how free are you to roam so you can take pictures of the race? Is it possible to get shots like the pictures in "vintage" threads, or is there some kind of strict access restriction for "normal" people?

You will find you are pretty much free to roam around anywhere you want. Most car owners/support people are more than accommodating and enjoy sharing their cars and stories. Keep in mind that they can be pretty busy getting everything together. The only negative is many of the current owners do not maintain their cars themselves , and as such, don't have a lot of answers if you have technical queries.

Either way, you'll have a great time, and you should have many photo ops during the reunion.

Wow! Someone was quite the metal crafter in the day. There are not many around capable of doing that sort of work.

Thanks for the followup.

Karman,
I'm curious about the rear fender flares. Were they steel, fiberglass, or a combination? They looked to have stayed in pretty good shape.

Your car is coming along at a good pace, and the work looks excellent. I'm anxious to meet you and see the "green" car in Monterey!

It's not real clear in your photos, but it appears your crankshaft pulley may not be fully seated. Make sure the back of the pulley is completely flush against the damper.
