General Discussion / A/C System
« on: December 04, 2015, 05:19:55 AM »
Hi guys.
I am looking for a 67 Camaro A/C system. Used or restored is ok.
Anyone have any ideas or one just lying around for sale?
I would like to have original as opposed to Vintage Air if I can find one.


General Discussion / Anyone is West End North Carolina 27376?
« on: September 04, 2015, 12:01:09 AM »
Hello everyone.
Do we have a member in West End NC 27376?
If so, I could use a real hand. I have found some parts to have looked at and shipped out to Alberta Canada if they are good quality.
The seller is on Craigslist and I want to make sure I avoid a scam if possible.
Anyone out there that can assist?
I am happy to cover costs to view etc.

Hi Jerry.
Thanks for the posts and information. I have the car at Pro-Stock getting some items addressed so I haven't had a chance to try the wiring.
I may have it back tomorrow or Wednesday with any luck.

I will post as soon as I can try:)

To better explain, the two wires are located by the wiper motor and open there.
They have two small prong connectors that look like a u shape.

I posted last week but haven't received anything that shows exactly where the two wires are supposed to go.
One Brown and the other Yellow and White.
Does anyone know or have a picture of them on the 67?
No idea where to connect them.

Hello guys.
I am likely confusing everyone about what I am trying to find out.
The MSD was wired before and reported the rpm's to the FAST EFI module hand held.
Now that the FAST is removed from the car I have the old wires (not used before) from the wiring harness that are white and yellow and brown I believe. They are not going anywhere and sit by the wiper motor.
And of course the MSD does have a grey wre which is a sending wire.
How to wire them all together to make the original Tachometer work now is what I am after advice on.

Hopefully that better explains my dilemma:)

MSD Ignition Digital 6A

The grey  wire off of the MSD is the tach sending wire.
But what does it connect to and where do the other wires in the wiring harness connect?

Hello all.
Anyone have a wiring diagram of advice on how to wire the 1967 Tachometer to make it work with a MSD ignition?
I was running FAST EFI so the Tach sent to there on the handheld.
Now I have removed the EFI and want to wire the original tach properly and am lost.
I have a yellow and white wire, a brown wire, and the grey wire on the MSD which is the sending unit. But I am not sure how they relate, or what to send or wire up to the gauge or cluster.

Hello all.
Thanks again for all of the help and advice. I have to tell you it was not easy or completely clear what happened or the series of events at least.
While we have solved the problem we hope to have figured out the cause.
The issue, and it makes me a bit embarrassed not to have looked, was that the transmission and engine bolts were loose, two missing in fact. Now i am 100% sure that they were tightened.  Both of us know we tightened them. We did however miss putting in the one  bolt (small opening between firewall and has to go in before install).
Our theory is that the plugs were the wrong ones and were running cold and causing vibration.
This, coupled with the fact that I did not loosen the transmission when I tightened the flexplate led to the bolts backing off and increasing the vibration.
The second issue is that the Quadrajet carb was not tuned very well and the air mixture screws were worn  badly. This led to poor fuel consumption. Seems better with new screws and I still have some adjusting to do.
My failure to loosen transmission mount bolts led to  a gap between the engine and trans and when I tightened the flex plate it pulled the torque converter part way out of trans up against the flex plate.  Once i loosened the transmission mount the trans pulled up tight and everything fit well.
So it seems we have solved the dilemma. AT least for now.
All of you and your help are greatly appreciated.

Working on it tonight as last night date night with wife changed plans.
I suspect that the spark plugs were the issue and that the Autolite ones will correct with any luck.
But we shall see.
Much thanks go out to all on the advice and opinions.
I will post late this evening with results.

Plugs were very black and carboned up with some white burn on the ends.
Will try to set up the distributor and timing and fire tonight.

Checked compression and did leak down test on all cylinders. All checked out ok.
Went to get new plugs from NAPA and low and behold they went to give me different spark plugs.
Said the NKG 8177 plugs I had (and bought at NAPA I might add) were not correct for the 350 Camaro in 1967.
So they gave me Autolite N85 plugs.
I installed them and will try to set up and fire tomorrow morning.
I do not think that incorrect plugs can cause a woggle/shake like this? But thoughts out there?
I have checked firing order over and over.
What I am worried about is mayby not having set the balancer correctly at TDC when I assembled?
Or I did something else wrong on assembly to have timing off really bad?
Appreciate all of your thoughts even though it is far from all of you.

The wobble feels like it is at the flex plate and torque converter. It actually sounds like it is loose and shaking there between the seats while driving(all bolts are tight). (maybe torque converter is in wrong?)
I am going to try to change plugs today in about an hour. If there are no improvements after that I will pull tranny and flex plate maybe and see if it is cracked or warped maybe.
Could be running rich but i have put a Carter carb on as well as the rebuilt Rochester Quadrajet. Wobbles and shakes with both and when they are adjusted.

Same flexplate.
Drove it on a trip and it ran terribly, used 7 tanks of gas and sputtered.
But it didnt shake and wobble really bad.
Now it is wobbling. Seems to be at the flexplate in my opinion.
you can see it shake and wobble at idle and it gets bad and is loud at high rpm.
But I have checked wires and plugs numerous times.
Going to try another new set of plugs today and see though.
