91  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What's this parts name? Dumb question ... on: August 12, 2014, 06:30:54 PM
yes that would be it!  told ya dumb question.     most of mine is fine except where the wind shiled was mounted at the bottom.   The glass is still in the car but its missing a lot of that metal where the bottom of the glass touches it.  I guess the silicone didnt hold up and it rusted out.   Whats odd is the rest of its fine,  the front where the wiper motor mounts,  and the inside where the wiper arms are is fine too..   

guess ill ad that to the list of parts lol...

Thanks!   


KERR, what you will need is the dash top repair panel like this: http://www.classicdiscountparts.com/products.php?product=1969-Camaro-Dash-Panel-Steel   this part is welded over the the upper firewall and is what the bottom of windshield seals against. This is a common rust prone area on these cars.

Some parts are just the top piece with the lower sold separately. Some have both pieces together and seem to be cheaper that way. I don't think Rick's offer it complete,not sure. Google drop off extension or just trunk extension and you should find what you are after. Here is the inner tail extension too:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-1968-Camaro-Inner-rear-valance-Inner-Tailpanel-/380323934307#ht_750wt_662

Have a look at the combustion chamber and see if the area around the intake side is machined(side wall of chamber) If it is still rough cast, it was changed from 1.94. Not a definite, but a good indicator IMO.
96  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Ebay "COPO" trim tag for sale on: August 08, 2014, 08:49:21 PM
Yes it can. My base 307 coupe is tagged as an X44 which is the code for a base model camaro. All Norwood camaros had the X codes starting around the third week of December 1968.
2nd week Dec.

If the cam is a wild grind and vacuum is low, try cracking secondary throttle plates open a little. This is done by removing carb, flipping over and a small screw on bottom by plate on pass side below Vac. diaphram. this allows a little more air flow and allows primary plates to be closed more. If primary plates are opened too far, it uncovers idle bleeds causing poor or no idle circuit to work.
I'd also go back to checking with timing light to see if advance weights are opening too soon as mentioned in earlier post (too lighty spring). If vacuum guage is steady, not ticking back and forth, this would rule out valve train IE sticking valve,burnt, spring broken etc...Exhaust clogged is checked by holding at, say 3000rpm with Vac guage and see if it starts to drop after a minute or two. My 2 cents.

For some reason, that I still don't know today, I was conservative when I first learned to drive in '73 so my first car was a '66 Buick sports wagon. Exciting, eh?
Anyhow...when I first felt a '67 396 Camaro under my derrière around 1978, I have since changed my car ownership habits :-)

Good one. Mike,lol. For me, it was the seat back springs pushing into my back when I unleashed that Big Block torque! B.I.T.D.

Congrats Bentley, another HERO is born.  Wink
Now, if I could say the right words to get Ed back, I'd feel like a real HERO. Thanks guys.

102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Anco Aero Wiper Blade ID on: August 01, 2014, 02:46:23 PM
The "Aero" (wing) feature was only on aftermarket blades - none were ever used in production.

Admittedly, I have never seen a RPO number or have seen them offered as an option, but I was led to believe otherwise. Thanks for the clarification John. Anyway, got a set now. Just something else I bought but did not need. I guess $10 was not too bad though?
103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ebay 302 on: July 31, 2014, 09:42:37 PM
Id be running from this 1. Stamp is V0610DZ and its a "618" block with a C-12-9 cast date?
Sorry, I do not see a "V" in the stamp. but a "T" as Gary points out. Very rare, must be out of one of the 40,000 made after the first 20,000,lol.

Scored a set of what I believe are oriiginal Aero wiper blades off a guy's 69 SS. Can someone tell me how to confirm they are OEM? Either by pics or PM. I can't post pics right now. Thanks.

Old thread, but... thought I would share for database info and tracking. I just acquired an AJAX K-AX-8 off of a 12C Nor. car. Guy down the road has a X22 vert. Keeps replacing all the original stuff with reproduction parts. His loss, my gain,IMO. He is making a Pro-Touring car out of it, WTF? His plans are to replace all the GM sheet metal with new repro. Hope to score some more stuff. No pics right now as my laptop is down. Got other parts to post later.
