On my 1967 RS the steering wheel has a standard horn button not the RS. I know this is the way it came from the factory as my brother in law bought it new and it has never been worked on. All original numbers matching L30/M20 Camaro one repaint and new carpet and seat covers. Engine has never been rebuilt. The smog stuff has been removed if it ever had it.

At least the CE engine will not have an incorrect (for your car) VIN on it...  :)

I finally found the issue.  I had a single contact bulb in a two contact socket.  Installed the right bulb and my sail panel and courtesy lights are all lit up now!  Thanks and on to the next issue

Regarding the poster's question: "This might be a dumb question, are the bars tapped for a Zerk under the plug?"  I recently removed(and saved) the original orange plug from my Z bar to install a grease fitting.  The hole was not tapped and I had to tap the hole to install the grease fitting.  Mixed emotions at altering the originality, but my car never is going to be judged at a show.  That tipped the scales toward the service side of the equation and the zerk fitting went in.

Well if this had been 10 years ago I might have said maybe but at this point it seems the CE engine is as good as it gets for me.

 For most of my new cars/SUV's without grease fittings, I use a needle-type adapter to the grease gun and insert it at an angle into the boot to inject. It works great.

Some of us are old enough to remember when cars were greased (all the joints) as part of an oil change at the local service station (and how much grease it took was not a factor!).. :)   

I even remember the first car(s) I purchased which didn't have grease fittings....  What a downer for those of us who like to do our own maintenance to get under a car and discover no grease fittings and so-called 'lifetime bearings' and joints...  :(

The grease in mine was still nice. It would take half a tube to fill the z bar and that could be a mess!
Is the hole tapped?
