Hi Bob,

  I'll get my daughters slim camera and slide it in the cars tunnel and snap a few for ya.

962  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Z28 on eBay, White Nice.. Real?? on: April 11, 2012, 08:24:10 PM
We do not discuss fight club, if you get the reference.

Not sure if this was directed at my comments or the gentleman asking the question about a fake tag.
   This is a double edge sword and I know this group is tight lip about this because it can give the fakers more insight on what to do to correct a repo. But, IMO, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out just get a real tag and duplicate it in every detail. It can be done just like anything else if you have the $$$ to buy the equipment to perform the work.
   On the flip side, educating people what to spot can likely save them money from making a wrong mistake and also expose fraud. This topic on what to look for in a fake trim tag has been discussed ad-nausea in practically every car group on the web.
  Like money, paintings and other areas that bring high dollars, fakes will exist. Only through education can one educate potential buyers by exposing the flaws and maybe  either cause a counterfeiter to go broke by not being able to afford the $$$$ to have the equipment necessary and bail out or they will go the distance and duplicate an exact clone that is undetectable, which is likely these days.
   In this case the gentleman was asking a question. I feel the question should be answered in a PM at the very least and an FYI sent to the group that it was answered in a PM otherwise people will think CRG is just being rude.  Even then you don't know if the person asked in earnest or a counterfeiter masquerading as a would be buyer. Either way the car culture is face with either stay tight lip and let potential buyers make mistakes and also keep the fakers in business preying on them or educate to expose the flaws and the fakers making them. What prevents a true counterfeit copy these days with high precision manufacturing equipment available is $$$$$. So in this case education and knowledge has the advantage.

Sorry about the rant but this is an area that bugs me.
  Just my 2 cents.

All you have to do with any rattle can is fog it on from about 18". Dries to much the same appearance.

  That's exactly how I did it with my '67 dash annd it came out just right.

964  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Downloadable AIM's and 67 service manuals on: April 11, 2012, 05:21:33 PM
Thanks, I was in a hotel last night when I tried to download, I tried at one of my stores today, same thing. It downloads real quick and then says something about damaged file cannot repair. I also triied to just open it and it took a little longer but the same results. I'll have my IT look at it, maybe something wrong with my adobe.

Thanks again, Kevin

I got the damaged file message when I first saved it to disk then tried to open it. I got around that by 'opening' the file then save it later. The file size is 60MB and took a while to download.

 I'm no expert on what is fake or real on a tag but I can compare a real Z tag to this and I see the hook on the 6 looks odd as well as the curve of the 3's.
 Just an observation.


966  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Real 396/RS with A/C on: April 07, 2012, 03:31:56 PM
  The 396 didn't come with AC in 67. That is what caught my attention.

967  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Real 396/RS with A/C on: April 07, 2012, 11:05:34 AM
Being a 1967 fan I stumbled across this eBay link. What caught my attention was the mixture of air conditioning and the alleged 'Real 396/RS car'


968  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 Brake Booster Question on: April 05, 2012, 08:26:17 PM
 If it's like '67 then the booster normally predates the chassis assembly.
The booster was stamped when the booster was assembled.
I guess in your case it can be possible if a new batch of boosters werereceived and used when the car was assembled.
My 67 LOS 4B has an 8515 booster with 84 as the Julian date.

969  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: April 1 Homepage 1968 Car on: April 05, 2012, 05:52:35 PM
I see the '67 in the bone yard was missing the 'caution' fan sticker.
That must have been the first thing to get picked being it's so rare  Grin
I can't see how those tires on the East L.A. Camaro are to scale. Looks PS to me.

Funny thread though!

970  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 4P no radius rod on: April 05, 2012, 05:46:54 PM
So how was the front of the bar mounted if not floor bracket was installed? Bolted through the frame?
The square bracket also used a smaller bracket with a rubber snubber attached to it. Was that installed too?
Can you provide a picture?

971  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 396 Power Steering Pump on: March 26, 2012, 08:02:16 PM
The high pressure line should go down and under the engine sand with the return line. Is the high pressure hose original ? Should not be a 90 degree at the pump but more like a 45 degree fitting on the hose. The 67 AIM N40 A6 gives explicit instructions on how these lines are to be installed so that engine torque does not fatigue the fitting and does not cause problems with the hoses.
Do you have the sleeves on your hoses?

Hi Bob,

  The hoses were on the car when I bought it back in 1980 and they still have the sponge like sleeves and the round rubber coated ring circling them. The car did have headers installed when I bought it and I put the original manifolds back when I brought it home (the owner supplied them). The hose routing was draped upwards to clear the headers and I never bothered to route them back on the other side of the mount.

972  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 396 Power Steering Pump on: March 26, 2012, 06:49:59 PM
 This is a rear shot taken thru the motor mounts of the BB pump on my original 67 LOS 4B L35.
Comparing Ed's picture to this the return nipple bend looks correct relative to the lower mounting stud.
Hope this helps.

973  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN Stamp bona fides on: March 25, 2012, 09:17:01 PM
Looking at the VIN, it appears to have been issued between end of Feb thru March '69
The tranny casting date looks to be the first week of Feb (2 + 1 dot) but a better view will be needed to make sure the dot is not a casting artifact.
It looks like the P-code is 93 XXX(can't make the rest out) so that would be March 69
So far the date periods look good.
What is the tranny case number?
Can you get a picture of the engine VIN stamp too to compare to the tranny and the trim tag?

974  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Power Steering Fluid Spraying All Over Engine on: March 25, 2012, 01:47:05 PM
Or maybe an internally collapsed hose, if they are old.
Sort of like how it can (and does) happen with brake hoses causing brakes to lock closed.

975  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Quadrajet Restoration on: March 25, 2012, 01:41:41 PM
I got mine done by Carb Junkys
They refinished each part to their original finish (example: goldish body, zinc colored butterfly's, etc) and they provided an 18 day turnaround and a good price.
It even had new shaft bushings installed.
It was important to me to have the correct finish on each part instead of an all gold carb + parts refinish I have seen on so many 'restored' carbs.
The only finish not preserved was the green Teflon coated shaft ends (mine were rough anyways). I used an approximately matched color enamel for those 2 small sections visible on the outside.
