Eat My Dust 1976

392  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.

Ok thanks!!

As is Cherry Bomb.  More than likely owned by the same parent company.

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

My guess is its private labeled.

Aluminized exhaust

At least that is what I come up with from my detective work.. Huh

Mike you are the man!!!  Can you give me these dimension also?  & the thickness?  Thanks again!!!

Thanks Mike!

Does anyone have or can get the dimensions of the upper hook on the seatback for the metal back on 67 seats?  I need dimensions of the bracket and of its location.  Thanks, Darrell

Stole this from another members post.   Grin

I believe 400 series stainless is magnetic and 300 series is not, unless certain machining is perforned on it such as threads and such.

Correct.

400 series has little to no nickel in it which makes it magnetic and is also cheaper in price to produce.  300 series has more nickel and is in turn non magnetic and cost is increased due to the nickel content.  I would say the exhaust is 400 series stainless.  400 will rust; or oxidize, if not cared for over time.

So if you 'lost' around 7hp with a chambered exhaust and stock exhaust manifolds, would you expect to regain those 7hp with chambered exhaust and long tube headers?
Also, would imagine that in reality, there could be at least a 7hp variance between 2 otherwise identical (drivetrain) cars off the factory assembly line.

Ding ding ding!!

With my experience of putting countless late model LT & LS cars on a chassis dyno  some cars put down a few extra ponies than another.  Same setup put it boils down to tolerance stackup.  You have mins & maxs and it you have the incorrect balance then you will have the lower output rate.  Same can be said about the opposite.  The fact is you are not going to feel 7 or 10 or even 15hp by the ole "buttometer"..  Even the calibrated ones.. Grin  If you are not competitively racing then its all about sound.  If you like the sound of chambered then install it.  If not then sell it.

Honestly we are talking about 20 cfm.  When working at Holley; there were/are variances when flowing a carb that will be as much as a couple 100 cfm.  Usually you use the mean of a batch and come to your cfm flow.  USUALLY..  Has there been carbs that have been manufactured that were suppose to a certain cfm and fell short?  Of course, its like any testing batch testing.  All the tolerances that are used (especially back then) if you had a base plate that was at its min tolerance and a venturi  at it max then you will not get optimum flow because you will create turbulence.  When testing you want best case scenerios to get the best results possible.

Good deal.  It is great to have everyone willing to help others out with figuring these cars out.  Thank you again EVERYONE!!


Even Gary.   Tongue
