General Discussion / Re: Front Bumper Guards
« Last post by my69Z28camaro on July 04, 2015, 08:51:34 PM »
To all: thanks for the updates and answers. I started this after a discussion with another 69 owner who has V31's on a Chrome bumper and we did not see an "N/A with" for the VE3 bumper in the option spreadsheet.  My 69 has the VE3 option. I note that KurtS will adjust the option spreadsheet accordingly.  By the way, what is this "ordering info" look like or how can you get an electronic copy of it?

*I am not sure about Johns having the sticker. It has a reproduction sticker on it now, ( you can see a pic of it in Jerrys book), and when I asked about a pic of the original sticker, I was told they never took a picture of it prior to restoration? So, much like Bryon with this thread, I would like to see another 08A car with the original sticker to verify that cars from 08A came with the sticker.
 So far in my research I have Zilch. Earliest I have seen I think was 08E. ( which would have been delivered after September 1st when it was required)

Lynn, not all government workers are bad.

I know not all Gov workers are bad.  Just easy to make fun of them.... like making fun of lawyers, right?   And I do that too.

There were very minor dents just in front of the pinion snubber, but nothing bigger than a pencil eraser.  I worked them out when I was detailing the floor, and did not have to use any filler.

Yes, I now know the 1 70 tank was first week of Aug.  Just didn't know at the time, and probably would not have used it anyway because of the dented up bottom.

Owning an 08A car has made me take special note over the years when I see one.   Seems that dated components are all over the place.  I have seen an 08A car with a May dated engine, as well as one with an Aug. 2 dated engine.  Engines, alts, distributors and trannys are all over the place, especially transmissions.

Also, 08A is when they started using the mylar vin decal in the door.   I know my car should have received one, but it didn't.  The John Berry car, which probably rolled out the same day, did get the sticker.
Maintenance / Re: L48 Gear ratio w/ P-Glide

If "common" you mean "standard", per the Camaro Illustrated Facts Features and Specifications Manual, Jan. 1967
I'm assuming you are asking for 1967.
L48 w/Powerglide has the following ratios:
Standard: 3:07
Economy: 2:73
Performance: 3:31
Special: 3:55 & 3:73 (both w/o AC)

What was the most common ratio provided in an 295/350 with a 2 speed powerglide? Finally found the "shell" of a correct rear end  with radius rod bracket and panning rebuild. Based on exisitng code it was originally a 356, but somewhere along the line I heard a 331 was most common? Any data to support?

Read this this string of comments and the scenario described by Z28Z11 (April 15) is exactly what I have going on. I need a good carb guy to send it to. Any reliable suggestions?

Good job sounds like you nailed it.
Restoration / Re: Saginaw speedo gear
« Last post by JohnZ on July 04, 2015, 02:52:22 PM »
My 67 ragtop was originally a 327 3 speed Standard but the previous owner installed a 1973 to. 1975 Saginaw 4 speed. However the speedometer does not work on the car. I removed the speedo cable from the tranny and the little plastic gear is missing from the end of the speedometer cable. Does any one by chance have a part number and or pics of this item. My main case number is 3925656 and the ext. housing number is 326558. I believe this to be a sag from 73/74. I am live in Canada and would like to pick up the gear so I can get the speedo working. Also is there a clip that holds this in the tranny or does it just slide in on the end of the cable. Thank you. Any help would be appreciated.

You can't select the speedo DRIVEN gear you need without knowing the rear axle ratio and tire diameter.
