Thx Jano, great info. I am running Edelbrock Performer intake (non-air gap) with 600cfm Edelbrock carb. I was not sure what smaller primary's did, and now I know, better low end.
Thx. Keep the great info coming.

Turbo 350

Yep, that's why I'm asking, and why I posted "stock steering box".
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / 1969 350 RS header recommendations on: March 12, 2013, 10:53:01 AM
Getting rid of my stock exhaust manifolds for headers. Engine is fairly stock, bored .30 over, Performer intake, stock steering box.
Regarding the headers, trying to decide long tubes or shorties, brand, ceramic or steel. They need to be black. I'd obviously like to find a brand / style that is bolt in with no modifications.
So, give me some feedback on what you have, what you like and don't like, and anything else you'd like to share regarding headers for a 69 350.
Thanks in advance.

Thx. Generic is fine. $90 for a switch is a bit much for this car. Thanks for your help.
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1967 RS Headlamp Switch on: July 17, 2012, 04:20:00 PM
Any suggestion of the best place to purchase this switch?

Hope you're all doing well.
Can you tell me if the dash headlamp switch for a 1967 Camaro RS differs from a non-RS? Also, where can I find one? Seems most of the Camaro retailers do not have these.

Thanks in advance.

8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Have you purchased 1967 vent window glass from Rick's / Ecklers? on: February 21, 2012, 07:27:16 PM
I recently purchased a date coded vent window glass from Ricks / Ecklers. When I received it, upon inspection I noticed two issues.
First, on the lower edge there was two pin holes that appeared to be a casting type marks. The bigger issue was that the hole for the vent window handle was not big enough.
As you know, the shaft of the mechanism is round but with two flat sides. Although the hole in the glass is oblong in shape, it is not wide enough to accommodate the vent window mechanism.
When I contacted Ecklers, they told me "we have not had issues with this supplier in over 12 years." But then in place of helping me, they gave me the phone number of the supplier and told me to call them. Really?
The supplier is Pilkington Glass. The next couple of weeks were a comedy of errors, but finally, they send me what they said was the "correct" glass.
Upon inspection tonite, there was not much difference in the fit. The hole for the mechanism is just not wide enough. But, the pin holes were not there.  Smiley
Finally, here is my question.
Has anyone else had this experience? Should I just accept the fact that I will need to take this to an auto glass shop and have them grind out the hole a bit to get the mechanism to fit?
I am sure the vent window mechanism is the correct original mechanism.

Thanks in advance.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1967 front and rear spoiler on: February 12, 2012, 10:25:34 AM
Thanks guys. But it does look like it could have been a dealer installed option. Some people hate the way 67's look with spoilers, some like it. I respect both opinions. For me personally, I like the profile of a 1st Gen with front and rear spoiler. I have a second deck lid that I plan on matching the color and installing the deck lid. I will retain the original deck lid w/o the spoiler.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1967 front and rear spoiler on: February 11, 2012, 11:22:18 PM
Was a front and / or rear spoiler an option on the 1967 Camaro?

Thx in advance.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Pin on vent window handle on: February 08, 2012, 08:20:34 PM
Hey Pete, IZRSSS, or SMoon, what is the easiest / safest way to remove the pin? I have used a pin punch and lightly tapped with a hammer, but am nervous on tapping too hard. I have used a little WD40 in hopes it would loosen things up a bit, but still nervous about tapping too hard. I have already broken one vent window. Don't want to make that expensive mistake again.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Install 1967 vent window glass on: February 08, 2012, 06:02:21 AM
Thx Petes. Now if I can get the vent window handle installed without breaking the glass, I'll be in good shape.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Pin on vent window handle on: February 07, 2012, 09:43:37 PM
IZRSSS is right when they say "gently". I was tapping my pin into the handle......
 My new vent glass arrived today.

I did notice the vent handles I had purchased from Rick's, the pin is larger than the original ones I pulled out. When I complete this project, I will be using the old pins. Dated vent window glass is not cheap.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Install 1967 vent window glass on: February 07, 2012, 09:36:40 PM
I was replacing my vent window handles and suddenly the glass shattered. The frame is still in the door. I do not want to remove the vent window frame. I have removed all the broken glass from the frame and the thin stainless glass frame is still in tact.
Can I just put a little weatherstrip adhesive in the channel and insert the vent window glass?
Thanks in advance.

Rick
