16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 327 L30 Intake Manifold date on: March 10, 2014, 08:18:03 AM
Q for the group:  Would a casting date of "I86" (Sept) on the intake manifold of a '67 11A LOS  L30 build be too far out of range?
Looking to determine if I have a transplant.

Nothing too remarkable here - but the VIN is listed for the Z shifter so maybe a match out there somewhere. CT Craigslist.

The Secret Service needs to read this as its a clear case of of counterfeiting.

Thanks Bob - I think you are spot on with that. I tried orienting the brackets a few different ways - always the same result. I think going with the '68  multi spring version is the answer - for now (might go back to the singles at some point - and I'll have the right hose Smiley)
Thanks again - Chris

Check the CRG site under research topics for the full report on L30/M20's.
Very informative to include some production estimates that are about as accurate as you will find. Not many made and far fewer left that are complete (motor-trans-rear). If your car is a true L30/M20 - keep it together and maybe we can bring some posting competition to the forum vs. all the boys with '69's and Z's!!!!!!! Smiley

Sorry for the late reply but thanks to all for the feedback. Looking closer at the perches-they are defiantly the original single leaf set up (recess is only 1" deep) I'm sure this is contributing to the vibration the orig. owner stated developed after his mechanic made the change over to multis. There's really nothing holding the bottom 2 or 3 leafs from sliding side to side except for the outboard strapping on either end. Anyone have a spare set from '68? I don't think there were any multi. leaf configurations in '67. Thanks-Chris

Got it. Thanks.

Not my car but my '67 was purchased new at Ed Taylor 2/67. Too bad they are out of business. A little photo shopping and bam! Free restoration! (maybe not). Anyway - Ed do you have any other information on the dealership? Thanks Chris
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / '67 rear brake hose routing. on: February 04, 2014, 11:53:40 AM
Can I get 2 pictures of the following for a '67:
1. Rear brake hose to body mount tab/hard line.
2. Rear brake hose to diffential mount tab.
I just replaced the hose in the same orientation as was on the car-but it seems tight (not much play).  Would like to confirm the old one was replaced correctly when the springs were updated to multis. Thanks Chris.

This is what my "Barn Find" motor looked like after 28 years in storage (well, it was really in a garage next to the house) - but you get the point.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Mult-Leaf Springs or Single for 1967 L30M20? - That is the question. on: January 22, 2014, 09:17:39 PM
So my '67 rs L30/M20 had the rear leaf springs changed over to multi's. After a wonderful discussion with the orig. owner last week (cant believe I located him - more to come on that!) he confirmed that he had made this change at the suggestion of his mechanic after one broke and "almost put me  in the ditch"  Smiley
I'm planning on overhauling the rear - so the time would be right to either re-install the multi's or go back to the singles? - Seems GM realized pretty quick there  were issues with the single leaf application.  Comments? The car will be driven.  Thanks - Chris
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: who do you all get body parts from? on: January 15, 2014, 10:05:16 AM
Suggestion: beware of product pictures when ordering. I had a terrible time with Ground Up and trunk panels. Took me 2 weeks after I got the order to get them to admit the pics did not match the product because they had changed vendors.  Started calling around and found similar situations when describing what I was looking for. Solution when feasible was to request someone go into the stock room and actually LOOK at the part. A couple places were willing to do this - prevented more headaches.

Coincidence - I picked up almost the exact car about 6 months ago (only a '67 - is also a 11 LOS car). Its a #s matching L30/M20 that had been in storage for 28 years. Life has gotten in the way some  so the only thing I've done is change the oil and replace a window crank I  found at a flea market! This has been a blessing since the time I did manage to make has been spent researching the car and corresponding with the great people on the CRG Forum site!
Resist the urge to go out and start buying parts and accessories off the shelf.  I did that the first couple of months and now I have a bench full that I've started returning in favor of better quality and fit. Best  thing I did was to start up conversations with experineced <& trusted> people like you find here at CRG  - show the car in the light for what it is and what it is not - and realize that this is not a 2 episode project like you see on TV. I've had a great time w/it so far and have barely turned a wrench.  Enjoy the car piece by piece - and keep in touch - I'm sure we'll have notes to share.

Posted on NH C.L. - all 3 have seen better days (looks like a '68 in their too) - but might be worth a phone call.
