1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Fitting auto trans oil cooler to 68 Camaro on: May 16, 2014, 05:28:01 AM
Point to punder, by GM design, the cooler is filled from the bottom and returns to the trans from the top fitting.
The add-on cooler should be filled the same way, from the bottom up, as this removes air from the tubes.

My prayers and thoughts to you.
Fight the battle and always look on the positive side.

Tragedy to say the least.
What's the story of the '62 Corvette?
Why is this one here?

Quiz tomorrow, not multiple choice.

Okay. something new to remember.

I've only seen a black metal cap.
Plastic may be an aftermarket relay - reduce weight, gain MPG - HA!

You're welcome.

You may want to wire brush the wire terminals at both the horn relay buss bar and at the battery junction block next to the battery.
Maybe remove the horns and wire brush ground and the horn bracket for less resistance.
Wouldn't hurt to clean battery clamps and posts and engine ground.
Horns could have water inside making them sound like a sick cow also.

Yes, the switch is adjustable as it sets on top of the column.
Loosen the two screws securing it to the column, place in reverse, and adjust for light reflection on the garage door or back wall.
Repeat in/out of reverse to verify lights work and adjust accordingly.

Nice '68, Matt
Correct year, of course, and better with Corvette Bronze and black interior.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: console gauge lights on: January 16, 2014, 07:25:30 PM
No, OE design has the gray wire attached to INST spade on fuse panel, or tied into radio harness.
I would probably leave well enough alone as the gauges light up when the ign sw is in IGN or ACC.
Not a bad thing, my own personal preference as I wire the 'dash' lights with incoming ign power.

Nice find. Enjoy the journey.
Very well equipped and good color combo.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Cross Ram Z in action - sorta - check er out on: January 01, 2014, 07:21:37 PM
Thanks for the memories. Awesome sound I have not heard with today's technology, unless it is a recording.
And the Camaro looks nice also.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Temperature sensor question on: January 01, 2014, 07:00:35 PM
The OE sensor is 1/2 inch NPT (National Pipe Thread}, a tapered thread - tighten tighter to stop leaking.
Sensor is installed without too much pipe sealant as the sensor body needs to be grounded to the head for circuit continuity.
If you use an ohmmeter, measure the resistance from the center terminal to engine ground.
When cold, reads high resistance, above 1000 ohms.
As the sensor heats up, typical resistance value would be about 180-200 ohms for an approximate gauge reading of 180F, the 10 o:clock mark.
Reads like the head is set for a 3/8" NPT.
You might be able to drill out the 3/8 hole for a 1/2 hole, I have never done it, yet. Be careful in tapping, you could make the threaded hole too big.

Yes, there is a difference in the sensors you have.
No, you should not 'adapt' to fit the sensor as the sensor tip needs to be in the coolant flow for a correct reading. If the sensor is out from the coolant flow, the gauge will not sense the coolant temp. It may sense cylinder head material temp, and would be a higher temp indicated.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Back up light switch 4 speed help. on: December 19, 2013, 08:36:21 PM
On the picture shown, one terminal gets a fused ign or reverse power lead and the other terminal gets the light green wire to the b/up lights.
The bellcrank moves the silver tab on the right of the switch, via the turning tube of the column, and slides the internal switch connection over to complete the path for power.
