Brown wire in switch connector in the wrong place.

Put the two leads together to get full scale deflection, then adjust for zero.
Meter ready for use.
48  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 302 valve setting with roller rockers on: February 04, 2013, 08:27:49 PM
Welcome, Shooter.
I have always used the EOIC method in adjusting the solid lifters with roller rockers on a Camaro I had.
'E'xhaust valve starting to 'O'pen, adjust intake valve.
'I'ntake valve almost completely 'C'losed, adjust exhaust valve.
You can start at the beginning of the firing order and follow it around all eight cylinders.

Apparently, the VIN does not match either?

IMO, it looks real because if you look at the lower edge of the tag, the surface image matches the firewall image.
Follow a contour line, let's say under the word 'TIME', the image between the tag and firewall match.

You could run a slosh tube from Holley, they do work very well.
Or,  a hose between the bowl vents with the very top of the arched hose bologna sliced open for venting of both bowls.
As for the off idle stumble, 12-14 BTDC timing, idle, even with the -140 cam, s/b around 900-1000 rpm, need alittle more bypass from secondary side.

If you have to stay with OE, why not drill out an OE size jet to the size you want?
If stumble, then try a bigger squirter, jump two sizes a step until gone.
Again, measure the new squirter size and drill out an OE size squirter?

Rear axle bearing access is remove the C-clips and pull the axles out.
Now, you can use a sliding hammer puller and pull out the bearing and seal together.
You use SAE 90 wt lube on the outer surface of the outer race aiding in the bearing install into the tube.
Seal is next and sealant on the outside of the seal shell may not be a bad idea. Install squarely.
The axle is the inner race, you will see where the bearing rides on the axle.
The surface should not pitted, grooved, or missing any part of the surface, and the bearing surface should not be grooved deeply either.
A new axle may be warrantied.
Before installing the axle, spread a finger full of gear lube onto the bearing rollers.

I believe First Gen's had two  piece rotors, meaning hub and rotor separate.
Later, rotor and hub became one piece.
I would suggest in using synthetic grease for less friction, probably would never notice the difference.
Be sure to bend the tabs on the pads in securing the pad to the caliper preventing the annoying pad rattle.

Nice looking Camaro, just the same.
Trans crossmember is backwards.
Parking brake needs adjustment, cable sags too low.
Shouldn't the pulleys be deep groove?
Still, nice looking.

You're welcome, Mike.
Let me kniow how it works.
Jake, Basset Hound, one of three rescues here whom are 'spoiled' to the hilt...

No special tools, just need a 1/4 inch drive 1/4 inch 12 point socket.
Be sure to change the O-ring inside the selector shaft and kickdown lever when you remove the assembly.
Emery paper the selector shaft providing a new surface for the new seal. Lube everything with ATF.

You might try lower pressure and compare the results.
I had done PBM blasting on a couple alum wheels to remove brake dust embedded in the surface.
Cranked the pressure down to 30 PSI, and dust came right off and no deformation of the surface texture.

You are correct, age and outgassing of the solvent. Another crutch is the recipe and lack of a better product due to technology of today as compared to the day they were made.
