1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Master Cylinder Resleeving on: January 29, 2015, 07:56:00 PM
I used Apple Hydraulics to re-sleeve my master cylinder.  Pics are in the master cylinder cover thread. Very nice work.

-Mark.
That's the place that did mine too. It's local so it was just a short car ride. He does brass or SS sleeves. I opted for brass.

when you get that far, use a steering wheel puller, Danny..  rather than the 'jack whack'..  Smiley

Oh yes....I agree...use a puller! The wheel may be brittle by now and I would not want to risk any stress cracks developing due to hitting it.
The cap should pry off. The rubber holding it may be hard so it may take some effort to free it.

Companies do sell zddp additives, although I haven't used them myself.  Eastwood and even a company called 'zddplus'..

http://zddplus.com/

Some of my friends use zddplus and no complaints about cam wear so far.
These can be bought in bulk on eBay at some very good deals.

My 67 05B
Did only the Los built 67 trunk lid get a plated latch plate as shown on the red lid?

My 67 05B NOR (as well as the 04B LOS) has a plated latch.

 There is only a jacking decal for non-posi cars which was placed in the center.
This link has a lot of trunk lid pictures. My original lid is in reply #16 and you can see the edge of the jack instructions. This is on 67 non-posi rear Camaro.

Similar to what Mike described but this one bolts to the bumper and only has a single bar to goes under the tank to the trunk floor.  Still have the hitch stowed away in the garage along with the car..   Grin


I made an error when I stated attached to the lower valence. It is actually as Darrell's picture shows being attached to the bumper at the rear. The remainder of my description remains the same though.
So much for my memory!

 When I bought and parted out Camaro's in the 80's to help fund raising my children, I came across a few with trailer hitches.
And when I bought my 67 hardtop from the original owner in California, it still had a trailer hitch on it. They all had the same style of mounting whereby it had two thick bars extend under the gas tank and bolted to the trunk floor and also the bottom of the rear valance and made me wonder if at that time if it was a dealer item, but I doubt it.

 Both of my 67's have the R/S option and the standard 760-Z (buckets & standard black interior).

10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / OT: American muscle rusting in Japan on: January 20, 2015, 10:08:23 PM
 A little OT, but here are some classic American iron just rusting away in Japan. There are two Camaro's shamefully rotting in with the bunch.

Such a shame!

    Here are pictures of the dipstick tubes and of interest is what I assume is the vendors 'O' marking stamp.
Also, the original tube from the 04B LOS car (the 05B car tube was repainted back in the 80's) has black paint over the body with traces down to the tip that is inside the oil pan.
I only mention this because it was stated here that the dipstick tubes were raw. Maybe so with other motors, but the BB looks to have it painted.

  Both tubes from the 04B and 05B (motor dates T0214MZ & T0308MW respectively) are the same shape and both have the 'O' stamp.

Remember that the dipstick and tube are unrelated to the engine assembly date - they were installed at the car assembly plant.
   Knowing that then I can see how different P/N sticks show up on differently dated motors. It comes down to what is on the motor rack at that time of car assembly (ex: T0214MZ w/04B vs. T0308MW w/05B).

  I can post pictures of the tubes if needed.
Did the "HP" version motor have a larger sump....at least for a Camaro?

 I like the gold and black stripe combo. Looks like a new paint job?
