31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / window washer questions on: December 22, 2013, 10:29:36 PM
I have no washer parts on my car but when I painted it I did install the correct nozzles. That said I presume the pump goes on top of the wiper motor? I have seen the 69 washer bottles on either side of the engine, which side is correct? I believe my power plug is still there which is rare for this car as most plugs for many things were removed as you can see buy all my other posts last week.
 I have an parts order ready for Ground Up for the a.m. I assume there pump items are semi correct?
I did find a NOS pump on ebay so I know thats USA made anyway.

Thanks guys. Its not a show car but so I used the paint of similar color so at least its not black. On the Rolls Bentley cars I restored all fastners are silver cad and zinc looks close but fads. Im guessing the Manganese will do the same on fastners?
Am I to assume that all fastners are zinc colored maganese in a Camaro? Or just select ones?

Thanks Mike, I must have looked at 100 cars or more on line and all were black top and bottom assemblies!
34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / upper hood spring and assembly finish on: December 22, 2013, 01:38:06 PM
I serached several forums and I have a good engine bay finish scheduel and they say the upper spring is phosphate but what about the assembly it rests on? I was thinging it was like the lower assembly and the entire unit was phosphate? The repo sets are black or chrome mine is now semi black. So is the entire assembly phosphate or just the spring, adjusting screw and plate?

myred, the was originally was a col shift 3 speed and that was long gone. Now a 4 speed console car.
Kelley, yes I do have shorty headers to accomadate my vette side mounted exhaust. Once I replace the trunk harness next week. Ill get that switch and see how I can wire it. I want to check again under the dash and see if theres any remants of the original. I know theres zip on the column. I just had the entire dash out to install console gauges and Tach and didnt notice anything unusual but then again I wasnt looking!

After working on rolls.royce cars where  20 parts works as good as 2! I like the hurst arrangement better. How is that wired in? Tkx for the great pic.

William, Thats how the manual states it too but that was for column shift cars. I thought with 4 speeds there was a switch and bracket near the back of the transmission and when shifted into reverse the reverse shift rod hit the switch button which activated the rear back up light?
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Back up light switch 4 speed help. on: December 18, 2013, 03:07:47 PM
My 69  spent a lot of its life as a drag car, so when I got it I didnt know that and alot of little things were missing like my entire Ebrake cables, and much more. That all said I have no evedence of a back up light except the white lens in the tail lights and wiring to them. The assembly manual only shows automatics or column shift manual. I saw complete kits available of 67 amd 68 but not 69 that I could find. I have no bracket or wires near or around the tranny. The plug in under the dash on the column (as mine was a 3 on the tree when new) is gone so is the bracket on that said column.
What all parts will I need and where will I plug it in at? Tkx Jim

Yes Kurt helped me early on and the heater was previously replaced. I replaced the original 5 leaf springs as they were broken and the center pin was broken too. I also have the steel plate on the frame rail by rear tire. I even had the tank out and no lable there or in the seat springs. Id bet there have many engines and trannys in this car in its history too.
I have been thing about that SS emblem and I also like the teak wheel but the jurys still out!
I can do most anything but decided that at 750 each I bought the pre assambled seats! They fit and feel awsome! The tracks are not correct but other then 2 rear mounting holesin each not bad.
Today I ordered rear covers and rear belts. I was not going to do the rear but now the front looks so nice I decided to re do the rear.
Been trying to post other pics but my files are too big. Usually I just send the pics to my email and make them smaller but I am having trouble with email today. I 'll put some on tomorrow including and exterior shot. The car looks more like a Baldwin motion with the vette side pipes! Seriously loud and I love it! Thanks for all your help.

Interior pic with new console gauges, Tach, seats and dash pad.

I put in the houndstooth from PUI and the 3 point GM clasp type both from ground up. I finished everything this afternoon though Im still waiting for the under hook amp wires.
With out a history, paperwork or past ownership I did all the reseach on this site and the car was either an SS or an LM one. I did find one past owner from the 80s' who told me it was mainly a drag car and was originally a big block column shift 3 speed. Like I said previously I dont care if it a frankinstein car it looks correct and I made it an SS. Ill post some pics on this site soon. Thanks for all your help.

Found the problem today, human error! I had the white harnees wire pluged into the wrong location at the headlight switch now everything works with the exception of the amp gauge and those under hood wires should be here today! I have the dash top to finish today, then the new front seats and the new 3 point harness and then alll will be wright with the world.

Today I decided to start over. 1st i unpluged and removed the entire new console, turned the battery on and blew the rear lights fuse #2 on left. THen unpluged the front bulkhead from the fuse box and blew the same fuse. Now I know its not in the engine compartment or the new console. I did see that the instructions call for complete removal of the green wire at the bulk and the ignition, I only removed fron the bulkhead but I dont see how that is a problem but today I removed it anyway. I tiddied up the tach wiring in the engine bay and called it a day. I need to get more fuses tomorrow and do more testing. SOmehow I still think its in the new headlight switch. The only wire I changed out was the white wire, the interior lights never go off now at all but tomorrows another day.

This mighthelp, everything I restored previously and all worked properly before I did the gauge harness. Im thinking the plug in wires at the fuse block are not powering on, ill ck tomirrow. Jim
