721  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How to clean up metal dash cluster gauge housing on: December 01, 2012, 08:58:08 PM
Interesting....I examined the gauge housing on my 67 NOR 5B and I don't see any traces of the dark coating. The metal is in surprisingly good shape with only a few traces of surface oxidation. The date on the printed circuit film is 3 15 67. I wonder what that dark coating was?

They have prices listed on their web site. I don't recall what a whole rebuild is buy it was a little over $200 .
 I got the brass sleeve installed for $90 and installed new parts myself.

I used applehydraulics.com here on Long Island. He will install a brass (or SS) sleeve and can also rebuild it.

 That looks like my 67 LOS engine bay!
I see it still has the original battery hold down bracket (dimples).
One thing I see though that doesn't look right is the clip that is mounted on the right front head. That looks to belong on the left rear side head fto secure the oil gauge line or oil pressure switch wire. The fuel line looks replaced.

Also, I thought BB axle torque-arms were supposed to be square and not round tubing..

The TH400 usage didn't get a square bar.

For sure unrestored and rust free . Very nice.  69 style straps on rear  yoke . I believe they should be u bolts

 The straps are correct for a TH400. I have them too on my 67 4B w/TH400.

I noticed the motor still has the old style engine mounts as well.
And the gas tank also looks like it is black which is correct for a LOS 67.

Looks unrestored to me. I noticed the springs have the paint mark and no decals. The paint mark looks yellow like my 67 L35 4B LOS springs.

728  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: GM 3905525 Metering Valve Disassembly and Rebuild on: November 25, 2012, 02:38:42 PM
 The metering valve (or hold off valve) on my 67 had a parkerized finish like a firearm for the front cap. The body I am not sure of but all I can see on my survivor was surface oxidation so it was either unplated or any black paint applied back then wore off. The reproduction plating I have seen are wrong, at least for 67 from what I have seen so far.
More info can be found at: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9970.0

As for the bracket I suspect it was likely dipped too and that would be 60% gloss black.

I like 'J' better in this batch. The differences in letter font type between Camaros.org and 'the 1st Gen Authority' looks best.
The word 'the' in lower case allows 1st Gen Authority to stand out and the difference between script and non-script separates the lines nicely.

 OK...so when do we vote? I like the last example 'J' just as it stands.
Thanks for taking lead on this, Marty.

731  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Big Block Fan Shroud on: November 18, 2012, 08:12:49 PM
   I know this is an old thread but I'm in the market for a replacement BB fan shroud for the convertible restoration (the kids are asking for Xmas ideas). As I understand it nobody is making an exact reproduction. Can anyone recommend a decent reproduction even if it is second rate to what an original looks like? I have a NOS one I bought back in the 80's and it is the factory modified one with a hole. Comparing it to the original one of my 4B LOS survivor it looks different. I'd like to get something very close.

Thanks,
Mike

Marty,

 The way it is on the right side example, I would run with that.
I think you nailed the final markup. I certainly would buy that.

Screen or embroidered? I'd vote for embroidered but I'll take what the final decision is.

 My 67 LOS survivor has the white jug. Of all the 67's I have owned I never had seen a black jug, only white.

Dang, I missed a lot since Sandy came to town! I like the smaller offset front logo with camaros.org on the front. I would like to see how a larger logo above the words "the 1st gen authority" would look on the back.

Hmmmm......"the 1st gen authority"..........this is growing on me and after seeing Marty's example, I like this the best.
