Leave the nozzles in place and use a torch tip cleaning file...

 ...or attach a long (long enough to do this procedure past the front or side of the car) hose to the back side of nozzle(s) 2  @ a time if desired, L & R, with hose supported in a vertical position, past the front or side of the car, and pour a solution of either, white vinegar or a product found at local H-ware stores called CLR (Calcium,Lime,Rust) into the hose and let sit with hose supported. This may take days or hours of soaking depending what is blocking the nozzle.

Well first let me ask does your pump even work? I say this because 99% of us with RS and headlight washers never use it because it make a mess all over the place. If your pump is working then maybe you want to remove them and service them,. Take a look in the AIM page 467.

I can vouch for my cap from 1982. I recently had to replace it with a new one, because fuel was spilling out the back when accelerating. A gentleman behind me let me know. So it was old enough for seal failure. Other than having been lost, I so no reason why it had ever been replaced. But I can't be certain.

Need to replace my RS headlight washer nozzles and hoses. Respectively, they are clogged and cracked. It "looks" like the best way to get to the outer nozzles for replacement is to remove the grille. YES or NO? Doing so, I can get a wrench in there to remove the nozzles nut and washer.  In order to remove the grille it looks like I remove my Endura bumper to get to the 4 bolts holding the grille in place or what?

Mike, Don't know. Purchased steering box from Heartbeat. I would assume they adjusted appropriately. How can one tell?

Hi John,

  The way to tell is to use a scale to measure the resistance of the shaft but that would have to be before it was installed. Too loose and it will have some slack feeling in the steering wheel and too tight it could bind and/or create excessive gear wear. I'd be surprised if that measurement was not checked during rebuild if it was done by a knowledgeable rebuilder. At this stage I would drive the car to get a feel for how the steering wheel feels. If no slop then I would say you are fine.
  As a side note, I know some people who use the old school way to drive and slightly tweak that nut until the slop is gone. Sort of like adjusting the vacuum advance without a timing light.

Phil, several years ago I challenged Impalas with 427 and 3-2's, which was in the book. I couldn't get a straight answer but it eventually disappeared. Don't rock the boat!!  If you remember the VW class I knew people involved with that fight. ALL VWs are now in one class, water and air cooled, buses, cabriolets, everything from 1936 up.
General Discussion / Black headliner and sail panels??
« Last post by X33RS on November 29, 2015, 01:37:05 PM »
Finally getting around to this car.  It's a factory white deluxe houndstooth interior.   The headliner and sail panels as well as the A-pillar moldings are all black.  I'm 100% certain the interior is original and unrestored but the black headliner has me puzzled.   

Is this the way they came?

Phil, I just read the thread and the one about HPOF. Now I remember why I quit reading those threads. Nothing to do with Camaros, but I think I know which car Trimacar was talkiing about. It's had a total repaint and interior and still got an original HPOF award. Don't want this thread to go on a tangent so I'll stop.
Wish I could say that never happens, but it does....
BTW, a couple of us from HNR have told the VP of Judging that leaving Zs off the HP list was a glaring error.  That should be corrected with the new Camaro HP class.  I've also pointed out that the 327 with a four barrel is incorrect unless that define the transmission.  The way it is written now a 327 with PG would qualify and a Z wouldn't.  I'll make a point of asking in January.

'69 Van Nuy's Z.  04B.   Ears with what appears to be GM or SM stamp.  No idea if it's original.
