46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: original paint 69 Z on ebay... "survivor" on: September 07, 2013, 12:09:16 PM
I like it!    Wish it were in my garage!  Old unrestored cars have always been extremely interesting.    Jim

49  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: September 01, 2013, 12:50:00 PM
You are right,  it does make a person wonder how a distributor could be guaranteed original.   Jim

I don't know; the numbers do look very "crisp";  stamped deeper, and more defined than our distributor.  It is very clean; but they do clean up nicely.  It was surprising how easily our's cleaned up with a little time and dedication.   I'm not an expert on distributors; so janobyte's suggestion is a good one.   What will everyone else think.    Jim

Your pictures look just like my car.   Body color, over spray, trunk splatter paint "splattered" on.   Not an abundance of body color or splatter and some area's on the tail panel with neither.

Indeed it is interesting MO;  you're right,  all the pictures are clear except the trim tag.  Clear enough to see the "hit and miss" aerosol spray can paint job on the suspension.  It would have been better to have not painted the suspension at all.    Jim

 
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Crane XR-i points conversion question. on: August 01, 2013, 03:14:59 PM
Our 69 runs well with its points; we run a quality set and carry a spare set. The spare has never been used yet..   A friend had his electronic conversion  fail on a cruise last year, his 67 arrived back at his house strapped to the back of a flat bed tow truck.
In the past I had tried electronic on another Camaro we owned;  no change at all in engine performance, but it wasn't a race car and didn't see a lot of  high rpm's.
It's a personal choice; if you want a rev limiter, try electronic.   You can always change back if you want.

Our AMK  catalog just arrived yesterday; it is well organized, photo's of bolts, nuts, grommets, clips,  some have descriptions of their original applications.
The rear section of the catalog has part numbers listed by manufacturer, and in numerical order & page number where that part is located in the catalog.
I originally looked in my AIM for part numbers; located AMK through their website and ordered online.

We just received some bolts ordered from AMKproducts.com;  a couple of wire clips  and a few bolts that we thought would never be found.    Someone had recommended them to us.   They also sent a huge catalog;  amazing what they have available.  Perhaps try them for your under hood hardware.

Your 68 rs sure was a good looking car.  I hope you find it and can buy it back
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This is why you NEVER trust anyone on ebay on: July 19, 2013, 02:32:09 PM
Yes indeed,  there are a lot of questionable items on e bay.   My favorite are the parts listed as "original part, slightly used" .............on a car that is a 1969?  How slightly used could it have been on a 44 year old car?   Typically the price is a huge amount for those kinds of items.
Rivaled closely by typical parts used across model lines,  but are listed as "for Camaro" Sure it may fit a Camaro; but is it the correct part for that year and model of Camaro?  Or is it a re-stamp and made to appear correct in the photo's
Don't get me wrong;  I like e bay;  but  we only buy parts for our Camaro from large reputable parts dealers, or local ads where it is possible to see the part before purchasing.   Just my thoughts on parts purchasing        Jim

My car's heater hose clamp looks just like that.
