But that's not confirming the Camaro application. Smiley
Sounds like this starter had many 69 L6 applications.

You are right. Best I could come up with. The mounting holes are straight across, one short,one long bolt.

   As I said the car is running fine now with no issues, this just "bugs" me that I needed that spacer.  Any ideas are appreciated.  I'm a little OCD and I just want it right.  My wife bought me a T-shirt for Christmas says; I have OCD and ADD,  so everything has to be perfect, but only for a little while.  Fits!!!   Thanks

Mike, Do you think we should start a club? Change the name of the site, here? Maybe start a support group? I got a big smile over what you said about OCD, because I am in that camp. I would venture to say, most of our members would fall into that group too as we obsess over our cars. I want one of those shirts too!!
I really do not think your mounts could be switched, but I do not have a 67, nor have I seen pics of your car, so will not comment any further. If you could just channel that energy that has you worried about your car and use it towards getting my car done,lol...see, I am obsessing over my car!
Sounds like you need to get that thing "un-packed" and start getting pictures posted. The sooner you get her back out of her cocoon, the sooner the weather will straighten out (weather is waiting on you and not vice-verse). Have a great day.

Just don't be shocked if a CRG member bids against you.
Also don't be surprised if a fellow CRGer has the same item you are looking for and will make you a better deal, just because you are a member and contributor and they don't mind helping you out as long as they know it is not being flipped on Ebay.

I assume (hate doing that) you are referring to the stripes that where on the wheel lip eyebrows. This topic was discussed just this past week regarding Z/28s in this thread:  I know the topic started may throw you off, but at post #10 is where the stripes are addressed and JohnZ has an answer in post #17.

I'd like to confirm the starter usage on L6 cars.
So I'm looking for the original starter numbers off of any 67-69 L6 car.
Especially 67 since manual and auto may have used different part #'s.

Pretty sure the 69 L6 starter I have at home is 1108365. It will be a while before I can confirm that....


X2 Kurt. I can confirm a 1969 6 cylinder laying out in the shed (untouched/unmolested original down to heater hoses and air cleaner filter,which I personally pulled) has its original starter and it is 1108365 also. It also has McKinnon stamped on it as the car was of Canadian build (Buick). Also, there is a real low hour/mileage L6 GM engine (born with) in my 1969 Gleaner K Combine and it, too, has a 1108365 on it.
112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: widow felts nos vs. A.Mrkt. on: March 09, 2014, 01:30:17 PM
 Wink Thanks Mike. I guess to try to clarify my position I have, up to this point, always bought original OEM or NOS items ONLY. I have not bought anything repro, quite proud of that, I may add. I am getting to a point in parts buying where I realize that repro will be the only route as the price of NOS is too high for me IMO. Most of the items I speak of are soft items like rubber, foam, plastic, and vinyl. Things like weatherstrips and trunk mat. The other items are pot metal where it might be too costly to re-plate. I am a purist and like things as correct as possible. If there is anything that falls under the categories mentioned (soft and pot metal) that the repro is just not acceptable because of appearance, fit and quality and is so sub-standard that it is obvious to most that it is not "correct" then I would like to know. I asked about felts because I have a chance to get a set of outer NOS. I know I would prefer to have them over the repro, but for cost consideration. I will compromise (or should say I have to) up to a point, but if the repro part is just flat wrong and a flimsy cheap imitation, I want to know and at that point, I will have to suck it in and get NOS.

Always nice to see members meeting in the real world. Glad things are back on the the track and at full throttle.

Full throttle??...My bank account has a governor on it,lol   
I'll add, I had to leave my house a 5 am to meet up with Bueny at 7 am. Did not get home till 8 pm! Long day, for sure. Bueny was disappointed as he planned on taking a maiden voyage in his COPO clone, but weather did not co-operate.

As some of you have followed, my car's restoration had stalled when I was having difficulty finding someone to do the body work on my 69. After a plea and post on here and several supportive members coming forward, I believe things are back on track. A heartfelt thanks to all who have helped. One member, Buenymayor, told me about his body guy and sent me pics and helped me make contact with , mrls6, in Ft. Wayne,Ind. I had a good feeling about this guy from the first contact. Today, Buenymayor and I met at his house in downtown Buena Vista, Ind. and drove up to see his car and to give me a chance to meet mrls6 in person. We all hit it off and we all had a lot more in common than just our love of Camaros. Arrangements have been made for my car to be started on in April. He(mrls6) is finishing up on Buenymayor's car right new. Thanks CRG and get ready to follow this restoration as things progress. Yea, I am nervous about the money holding out, but I only have this one life and don't want to have regrets, so will press forward and try and join the ranks of restored correctly Camaro owners. Now, I am in S.W. Ohio and Ft. Wayne is not in my backyard, but mrls6 impressed me with his knowledge and desire and ability to do the job right. So, looks like I have a plan. Wish me luck! Wink

Joe, What all did you add, option wise? Do you have a pic of what it looked like when you first got it? In its $800 form? Car looks outstanding now. Like the color.

 Huh Hey there Sul423,
I won't speak for all, but many of us, here, would say,“Homie don't play that” to quote Damon Wayans- Homie the Clown character of the 2000's. We would like to get to know you and learn about your car. Of course, you did not put your location in your profile, so I cannot relate to your pic or know anything about you or your car. By what I see, is that Kuwait where the pic was taken? Give us some more information and become a player with some social skills and then some here, may be compelled to want to post to your instagram or whatever it is site. What really interests most here would be pics of the trim tag and other relevant documentation that proves the car is not just another of countless clones that pervade the market. I will give kudos that it is Hugger Orange though Roll Eyes Cheesy Best of luck and welcome to the site.
