16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Chambered Pipe Vs. Regular Muffler Bracket hole for 1969 Z28? on: July 12, 2013, 01:05:56 PM
Are the bolt holes(in the body) that holds the straps for the Chamber Pipe Muff. and the bolt holes for the regular muffler system in  the same identicle location? The location is
above the Transverse Muffler for both systems.  In both cases it holds staps(different) that bend downward and go behind the clamps on both systems. I hope I am
eplaining this correctly. Thanks-Larry

Just a followup; it does not have to be a NOS one; reproduction will do fine as this hanger is very hard to see. Larry
Any help?? P.S. Ebay item#150609932920 has a picture of them. (Center Right in the Picture)
18  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Looking for Driver Side Back Chamber Pipe Hanger #3965182;Any Idea's? on: July 06, 2013, 12:06:58 PM
Upon changing my chamber pipe back muffler I discovered one of the hangers (3965182) was broken. Any
idea's where to find one? Don't really (unless I have to) want to buy all the hangers as a set as all mine are
fine. Help! Anybody!
19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Need help/advice on changing exhaust systems on my 69 Z28. on: July 02, 2013, 05:57:31 PM
Are you referring to the chambered cross mufflers?   Allens does make the chambered system as well as regular systems for all kinds of collector cars...

69Z28-RS: Yes the Chambered Cross Mufflers-All my other pipes(Exhaust-Front Muffs-Tail) where all fine. My car is a "trailer queen" so
engine is not run long so the cross muffs rusted out from the inside-out. So I have part aluminum and part S/S system which Allens indicated
no problem. Sounds a lot better now. Larry

Just a follow up. I got Allens Exhaust to make me up the two back mufflers (Cross Muffs.) in stainless steel and
told them to try to make them less noisy then normal. He did just that and they fit like a glove and sound real
nice. Should be set for a long time now since they are S/S. Thanks for the comments. Larry
21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original Yenko Camaro Warrenty? on: July 01, 2013, 07:18:13 AM
Found the answer to my own question. Was at the AACA Grand National this W/E and the class I was in was just awsome. Yenko's-Z16-L72 Bascaynes
and a lot more anyway here is the story:

 Talked to the Yenko owners in my class(36B) at Moline this weekend and as I understand it is that the 69 Camaro
 Yenko's where actually COPO cars ordered from Chevy so the engines where installed at the factory so the GM warrenty was like any other GM car. When
 the car arrived at Yenko Dealership he put on the strips an all the emblems, wheels and etc. It was a different story though for the 67 and 68's as he did
 R/R the engines and the warrenty was put out by him not GM. Thanks-Larry
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Original Yenko Camaro Warrenty? on: June 26, 2013, 07:42:57 PM
Did the original Yenko Camaro's come with a GM warrenty or did the warrenty originate from the dealer?? Or no Warrenty?  Thanks-Larry
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Question on T-60 Option (Heavy Duty Battery)? 69 Z28 on: June 20, 2013, 02:21:40 PM
We all know that the T-60 Heavy Duty Battery was a option on the 69 Camaro. Did it come with Top Post
throughout the production year? We know the regular battery changed to side post earlier in the year. Did the
T-60 ever come with side post? If it did when did it happen? Also what was the battery number for the T-60; R59-R59S or??
Thanks in advance--Larry
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Need help/advice on changing exhaust systems on my 69 Z28. on: June 17, 2013, 04:59:46 PM
Just a followup; also talked to Allens Exhaust today. They said they could make a stainless steel chamber
exhaust (two transverse mufflers) for my car. It should be a R and R. Thinking I will go with this to avoid
another early muffler failure. Question: Will be S/S muffler be more or less loud? Or the same? Thanks-Larry
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Need help/advice on changing exhaust systems on my 69 Z28. on: June 17, 2013, 01:31:47 PM
No. The chambered exhaust is a totally different animal. Go on Gardner exhausts website. They are the best!

Thanks for the reply. I just talked to Gardner Exhaust and they are very helpful. They tell me though that all
of their exhaust systems are made out of aluminum.  Don't know if anybody makes stainless steel
systems but what is your thoughts on that? My 69 Z28 is a "trailer queen" and not run long enough to burn
all the water out of the system all the time; therefore the muffler will rust out from the inside. Idea's? Thanks-Larry
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Need help/advice on changing exhaust systems on my 69 Z28. on: June 16, 2013, 06:16:43 AM
My 69-Z28 has the NC8 option.(Chambered Pipes). They are on the rather loud side like most of them. Thinking to change the
system to the standard duel pipe muffler system. This is the one with the cross muffler that was used on the Z28's when Chevy
pulled the chambered exhaust as the standard system. I do not want to use the later system that also used resonators. Here is
my question: Will I still be able to use the front exhaust pipes that is on the car now. (Pipes from the exhaust manifolds to the rear
exhaust pipes) that connect to the muffler? Also can I still use the tail pipes that are on the car now? Thanks in advace-Larry
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Lacquer Vs. Enamel for the Camaro on: June 03, 2013, 08:00:43 AM
We all know the early Camaro's used lacquer paint and the newer ones use enamel. Does
anybody know what was the year of the changeover? Larry
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z28 throttle rod attachment question? on: June 02, 2013, 04:38:19 PM
At the carburetor end, the Z/28 throttle rod fits in the SMALL hole directly below the LARGE hole in the throttle lever; the LARGE hole that takes a black rubber bushing and white nylon sleeve on the base V-8 isn't used on Z/28, L-34, L-35, and L-78. There should be no "play" at all in that attachment, which only takes an "E"-clip.

JohnZ: Thanks for the reply. My excessive play is in the lengthwise (In and out) rather than the diameter of the hole. It seems that the slot of
the rod(that holds the "E" clip should have been put closer to the throttle arm of the carb.IMHO  Larry
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z28 throttle rod attachment question? on: June 02, 2013, 12:23:37 PM
The 'C' clip I think is actually called an E' clip isn't it? The rod on mine seemed a bit floppy on mine and although it's been a while since I looked I believe I filled in the slop with a tiny flat washer or two. I'll have to check. 

69Z28:  Thanks for the response. When throttle is pulled back
everything tightens up fine. May put some flat washers in.-Larrry
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Z28 throttle rod attachment question? on: June 02, 2013, 09:33:43 AM
Larry, the throttle rod has a C-shaped snap ring-type retainer at the carb lever, and a sleeve & bushing with split pin at the firewall throttle arm. If you have access to the factory assembly instruction manual (AIM), the linkage is shown on UPC Z28, sheet A4. If you don't have one, you can download a PDF version via this link.

ZLP955:

Thanks for the response. Yes I see it now; but still think there
is excessive movement but will have to live with it. Larry
