16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear end for my car dating info help experts please on: May 10, 2014, 10:22:58 PM
I have a little more BS for you guys...   08D (Aug 22, 69) car.
Par Vin: 67470x
Rear end: "C BS 0820 G2"

So that's pretty much 2 days between when the rear end was stamped and the car was completed.

Howdy all. Still reading, and see that I have a couple of incorrect stickers Angry on my 69 - black & gold air cleaner sticker & green & white coolant sticker. Can't peel them without the paint coming too. What's the best, least damaging way to remove them?

Y'all take care,
Mike.
I'd always try heat first, but with the coolant bottle you need to be real careful not to warp it.

10-4.... the dude was so sincere... I  bought into it enough that it had me second guessing myself Smiley   Guess that's part of the fun, and satisfaction that I got it right!   
Hawk, same here... I had door side moldings on mine that I thought were original... Although the AIM shows them, through the forum I discovered that No Camaros were born with them, and that it was most likely a dealer add on (thanks Ed B !)...   
Mine was my D80 spoiler. I thought for sure it was OE, but the trim tag no showy the D80... That's the only big thing on mine that won't match the TT.

and take someones comment of having an "untouched" car with a grain of salt next time ... Smiley
Good idea. Alot of times it isn't on purpose and sometimes they're just idiots and blowhards. There have been a few things on my car that I thought were original and would have sworn to it, but have been proven not original.
21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: First Gen FINNED rear drums??? on: March 28, 2014, 01:31:32 PM
Here's a couple things they could have come on outside of being bought a/m Gary. 70-72 Chevelle, 74 Nova, 70-71 Monte Carlo. Even my late August SS still had non-finned drums. Not to say they couldn't have snuck some in on even later Camaros...

Thanks.  Like I said it is far from perfect but I am satisfied with it.
In the end, that's all that matters.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: maintaining doors... on: March 25, 2014, 01:28:38 PM
door has had paint work at some point...
Biggest tell is...
The felt guides screwed (with little countersunk phillips head screws) to the outside of the door are completely covered in orange paint...
I believe the skin was taped off and painted at some point. It looks like the stripes were taped off and painted around. The strips are original, but not the paint around them... I don't think the paper on the inside of the door had ever been off.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: maintaining doors... on: March 25, 2014, 10:12:20 AM
Here are a few more door pics that might help... from my 69 SS396 I have more if you need to see something specific.





25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 Key cylinder will not go to Accessory on: March 25, 2014, 08:36:45 AM
Rear is out of the car (for 20 + yrs) lying on the back floor of my shop.  the drums were not locked up; axles turn (opposite directions), but the pinion will not.   I'm going to 'bump the pinion' with a deadblow and if that doesn't jar it loose, then I'll follow an other suggestion and dump a mix of ATF and a solvent into the differential to loosen it hopefully.   Or maybe I need to just pull the axles and pumpkin and redo/rebuild everything (axle bearings and pinion bearing/seal. I do plan to drive this car, and I prefer doing things once, and only once.. Smiley [/quote]
I know that's what I'm planning on doing with mine Gary. I'll pull it apart, blast it and paint it, then reinstall everything with new gaskets, brakes etc. It will be so much easier when it's out of the car and not having to to pull it back out for the R&R.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Cross Ram Z in action - sorta - check er out on: March 18, 2014, 01:50:29 PM
Just a quick response from a newby ..............I would have to disagree with Johns comments about the performance of Cross Ram manifold. We ran the manifold on our 67 Camaro in the Trans-Am series and although we didn't have a dyno we found the manifold to give us a real power boost probably at least 50 H.P.
Here is a link to my partner Dennis and I putting the finishing touches on our 302 race engine that we ran circa 1969.
By the way the complete set up with carbs cost us around $500 back in the day

Those were some great pics. For what it's worth, I WISH my truck and trailer got the 10 mpg you were complaining about in one of them!

That's enough to make you puke... What a find and where does the money go? Sounds like the govt makes out again.

"Larry Brown, a resident of Centre Hall, Pa., passed away on his birthday during the latter part of last year, leaving behind a trove of fascinating items. With no wife or children to inherit his estate, the entire collection his house, TVs, snow blowers, motorbikes and of course cars are heading to auction, with the Mustang the star attraction."

What about me and SgtHawkUSMC?
Lol... Yep, Gary you and I have already seen it. Too late!
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 396 350hp fuel pump on: March 11, 2014, 01:59:58 PM
Take a look at the applications for the 40727 (my pump). I've never noticed the note in the listing that shows specifically w/o the return line like Classic Industries listing( see below). I always saw the 70 L34 and never looked any deeper and figured mine was right. Ground Up is different and so are a bunch of others. My motor is a CJF which means its actually a 402 and would be considered a 1970 motor even though it's my born with 396 engine.

Classic Industries:
Applications:

1969 396/375hp (L-78)
1970 396/350hp (L34) w/o return line
1970 396/375hp (L-78) after Feb 70, w/o return line

Ground Up's Listing:

Correct for 1967 Chevy 427, Chevrolet 396/350HP, 1968 Chevrolet 396/375HP, 1968 Chevrolet 427, 1969 Chevrolet 396, 1969 Chevrolet 427, 1970 Chevrolet 396 or 454 with Holley carb,

 I feel like I'm hijacking, so I'll leave it at that. Sorry for the bad info Dean...

A side note: SgtHawk I think your pump is for H.P. application, i.e. L78. L34=40568
Thanks for that. I had no idea. It goes to show you, anything can happen in 40+ years. I'm not surprised, fuel pumps fail... I'm sure mine was replaced with what was available at the time. Any idea if the fuel pressure is any different between the two? Maybe I SHOULD be thinking about what we talked about in the PM... hmmm.
