I don't remember but be sure and check the front bulb before the flasher.

Ah yes....good catch. I forgot about that. It's been a long time since I had a bulb burn out (maybe because I never use the darn car anymore!) :-)

Sounds like the flasher.

618  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Gardner Exhaust Rusting from the Inside/Install Stainless? on: December 27, 2012, 07:20:12 AM
 That is interesting reading, Jeff. I wonder if the problems were resolved with the supplier by now.
I was looking at the Gardner system because the 304 SS one I had made back in 1987 (I forget who did that....some place in Ohio as I remember) still looks brand new but the bend into the tunnel on the right pipe isn't as opened and smooth as I would like it to be and seen with steel pipes.
  During the cars re-restoration now I am looking at installing resonators which is why I was looking at Gardner but I just may look at the alternatives you posted too before making any decisions. I'm not going the 'judge on a lift' route so having an exact repro isn't as important to me.

Thanks for the info,
Mike

 Bryan,
 I imported both pictures you posted (original and newly sprayed) into Photoshop and measured the color values and they are very close. Looks like you have a very good match. I'm going to investigate this further being my springs are still out of the car so I just may use your idea.

Thanks for the follow up....it's always nice to see what resolutions come about with questions like these.

 Bergy,

    When you said casting repairs....what was a typical type of repair done? I assume that if a block wasn't repairable then it was melted and materials reused?

Thanks,
Mike

 Now that you mention Tonawanda and with keeping with the thread topic I took a look at my 67 BB's and found the following
cast info though I find it interesting the spread in block dates to assembly date:

Cast Date     Asssembly    Prefix   Lag Time
 B  6  7         0214            MZ      8 days
 B 22 7         0308            MW    14 days

Merry Christmas,
Mike
624  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: BLOCK CAST DATE VS PAD STAMP DATE on: December 24, 2012, 11:47:25 PM
There are even known examples of blocks cast and assembled the same day!

Ed

Now that is what I call "hot off the press" !
Very interesting info.

Merry Christmas

625  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: BLOCK CAST DATE VS PAD STAMP DATE on: December 24, 2012, 10:37:58 PM
I would think the block would still be cooling one day later.
I wonder how long a block was in the mold?

626  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 346 67-68 master cylinder cover on: December 23, 2012, 11:59:18 AM
Gary,

 FWIW, both my 67's (4B & 5B) still retain their original 346 'WT' master cylinders and neither have date codes on them.
Also, Long Island Corvettes has the correct reproduction covers with the vents and wording (P/N 52-18N).
They also sell the correct steel bale wire for a lot less than others Camaro suppliers.

Merry Christmas,
Mike

 If I should restore the survivor I will make darn sure I get close up pictures of every detail from all around for reference.
I'll have to get a camera with a good macro zoom for that  Smiley

Thanks for the scoop....'Scoop'  Grin

Merry Christmas,
Mike

I have been told by the Camaro Nationals Judges that the wheel well plugs need to have undercoating on them to be correct. Scoop

Well then my 67 4B LOS survivor will have failed that inspection because there are zero coatings on any of the plugs. If I were to restore that car I would leave them clean despite what the judges think because they have been that way since I bought the car in 1980 and the car sat for 6 years in a garage before I came alone to buy it.

I don't think you can use it with headers because how would it fit? I have never seen it like that anyways.

So 67 was the only year for plastic in the wheel wells?
