736  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Upper control arm shaft - How important is this surface ? on: December 14, 2012, 10:54:49 PM
  Your understanding is correct. The bushing is locked when assembled.
The picture of the shaft surface looks fine. As long as the new bushings fit on the shaft without rocking then you can reuse them.

 Hmmm...... Isn't the straight 7 number font wrong for a 69 trim tag? Shouldn't it have a curve?

Hi George,

  I was in the garage tonight so I took a picture of a 67 quarter drain hole. I *think* they are the same as 69(?)  Huh
Below are 3 pictures of my original drop panel (they are galvanized under the primer). I took most of the hole measurements with a digital caliper.
The plug is rubber (for 67 anyways). The notch is actually square but the seam sealer is in the way.

Hope this helps!

I checked the survivor 67 BB and it's phosphate on balancer and pulley bolts and washers.
My other 67 BB I gave a black oxide finish in the 80's because they appeared black then and recently phosphated them during the current re-restoration.

and...Happy Holiday!

 Worse comes to worse and there is no approval (which I highly doubt) I'll get mine made locally and give them to me as gifts  Wink

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.

745  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Does this 67 undercarriage look unrestored? on: November 30, 2012, 04:05:34 PM
 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.
747  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Does this 67 undercarriage look unrestored? on: November 28, 2012, 09:45:59 PM
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.

749  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.
