1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / 67 gas cap on: August 04, 2014, 09:10:24 PM
  I have been driving my 67 Camaro about every other day 50-60 miles and I noticed a fuel smell inside. I have all new hoses and clamps and gas tank seal and such fine. After a longer drive I stopped at a parts store and as I walked away from car I heard a "tea pot whistle " pitched sound. It was coming from fuel cap and I released cap and it had a great deal of pressure. The vapor smell was exactly what I have been smelling. I can drive the car 5 miles and cap has pressure, what is wrong? Huh

Thanks Alex for the comments and a pleasure to meet you. Your knowledge is no slouch either as sharing info is great. Thanks again for the magazine and I will be sending info on part numbers for hoses and such. I have lots of pictures but I need to figure out how to post as it is usually late for me and I doze off  Tongue. Thanks to all and carry on

68SixBangerRS,Thanks and I drive the 230 engine but seems to have a main or piston noise as oil pressure and temp are fine. I have driven 1500 plus miles and the noise bothers me so I will pull and put in another engine then rebuild 230. I am actually in Marysville Ohio near Dublin so you can contact me and look or pictures or whatever as I work and drive all around Columbus.

Welcome, and great to see you want to stay true to the car as possible. This is a great place for information and contacts as KO-LEK-TOR stated , as for the engine he spoke of he forced me to PAY for it  Grin.  Enjoy and anything I can do to help.

Thanks, mother in law is 66 years old and when I finished detailing it up and making road worthy I went to take her a ride. When I arrived to her house to bring her out to view her face brightened up and broke out in tears and gave me a great BIG hug. Priceless ! I asked her if she was ready for a ride and she responded " Give me the keys I'm Driving!"  Mind you she weighs all of 85 pounds due to fighting cancer, she hops in car and fired it up and put it in reverse  and as the old saying goes " it's like riding a bike you never forget no matter how long between rides" as car is three on the tree. We backed out of the driveway and as she straightened it out she looked at me and said " WIMP, you put power steering on my Baby!'  I laughed and said I wasn't as tough as you mom. Great moment and every day creating more.

10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare?? on: March 14, 2014, 05:51:06 PM
Question, do the numbers match on the cowl tag begin 124 and the door jamb tag begin 123? As I understand vin 123 is 6 cylinder and 124 is v8 or am I confused?
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Order of assembly when painting car on: March 12, 2014, 11:05:16 PM
  I had engine/trans and all trim, bumpers, and wiring in addition all items off firewall and radiator, inner fenders plus glass removed. I reinstalled front clip, only the sheet metal and completed all body work/primer, block sand etc. to set all gaps and body lines in addition to trunk to tail pan etc. This way all surfaces are one level and uniform in gaps etc. Then pulled front clip off and made notes and assured all shims and bolts tagged/bagged to go back into same location to duplicate adjustments. Proceeded to "cut in" fenders ,door jams, trunk area and hood and front valance etc. Reassembled front clip keeping shims and bolts in order, adjusted back to previous gaps and body lines and finish. Taped off sub frame and all openings, and used 3m foam soft edge tape to create soft lines at all gaps in doors fenders, trunk etc. Painted car, wet sand buff. polish etc. No matter how much you tape off subframe, areas etc. all the over spray and wetsanding ,  buffing debris gets into nooks and crannies. This is why I left sub frame in and then removed control arms etc. to replace ball joints ,bushings , springs, shocks to have all the new parts FRESH and a cleaner look. Did same for rear suspension and trunk floor as it is easier to cover whole car with Blue shield plastic cling and not worry about all the detail painting overspray. Reinstalled engine/trans etc., wiring , brakes, glass trim etc. with detailed fresh and no overspray. Do as much as you can to save time and money and communicate what you want as a finale product. And when reassemble just everyone be careful and use protection. I am novice and have done it from start to finish so make sure no rush jobs and you will be happy.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Base hubcap on: February 10, 2014, 07:04:14 PM
   I have been seeing mixed info on the color of a standard steel wheel on a 67 coupe with the base hubcap. As some state the wheel is painted body color and my car is white with black painted wheel and I see no evidence of re-paint. Which is correct and judged by others?  Thanks for looking.   Huh
