Yes I was just using them as examples..  I should have said "Just like cylinder heads, intakes as long as you are within a month or two months before the build date of the engine"..  If you go a month or two on the dates of the build date of the car or engine you would be in the clear.

I would think that would be in the ballpark.  Just like cylinder heads, carbs & intakes as long as you are within a month or two months before the build date of the car I would call it good.  Actually you could probably get away with Oct 66 as well due to the BB becoming available the tail end of Dec first of Jan.

There is a reason central Kentucky is called cave country.   Wink  It may be solid ground 30 or 50ft and then there would be a hole from an unknown branch of a cave system and all it takes is weight and erosion.   Id be willing to bet that this will ultimately be explored.  They'll almost have to verify that there isnt more of these pockets under the museum.

looks like a black 59 in your pic, I did't see any mention of that one.

Thats a 62.

Bowling Green and practically all of south central KY has caves under it.  There have been several sinkholes pop up over the years.  There was one when I was living there that dropped out on a new section of road that had been opened about a year.  Took 2 cars with it.  It was very close to the Lost River Cave in BG.

If you have another sending unit or an old one just unplug it from from the rear body harness in the trunk and use a jumper wire from the plug and ground the other side of the unit.  Should work if the gauge is working.  Sounds like you might have a ground problem though.

Make sure the wire off the sending unit is grounded.  If you have a spare sending unit plug it into the rear harness & ground it and see if you can make the gauge work by moving the float.  If it doesnt then its the gauge.

341  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Identifying Original Console Gauges on: February 08, 2014, 06:37:35 PM
I took another look at my console gauges today, and they definitely have a brushed finish (when the light hits the face).  I suppose the angle of the photo and lighting when I took the earlier photo made it look 'flat or unbrushed'. 

I need to clean my gauges up and get it all back together for going in the car and I have a couple of questions:
1)  My clear plastic lens over the gauges are 'scratched' and dull;  Any recommendations for polishing or replacing them?
2)  I also need replacement lamps for the gauges;  Recommendations for a source for these lampbulbs would be appreciated. 
     (I have the G-E 1445 lamps that I removed when I disassembled the console; they appear good.  I assume
       these are the original lamps?  true? or ??)  Are they available thru local parts store?

Thanks,
Gary

I used a polishing wheel in my drill and polishing compound and it did very well on this.

As is Cherry Bomb.  More than likely owned by the same parent company.
344  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Metal Seatbacks on: February 07, 2014, 11:13:44 PM
Thank you Mike!  Yes that is my plan.

I always use a caulk gun then use a piece of cardborard to do the spread look.  It takes a little practice but once you get it down it should look pretty good.  Practice on a old piece before moving to the real thing.   Wink
