Maintenance / Re: Clutch Grind when shifting to "reverse"
« Last post by bcmiller on May 02, 2016, 11:10:25 PM »
M22 gears are not straight cut.  Less of an angle than M20/M21, but not straight cut.

Check the easy stuff first.  In other words, the shifter.  If that doesn't solve the problem, then start looking at the clutch/throw out bearing/bellhousing alignment

General Discussion / Re: Trunk or counter?

Which year are you talking about?

Headers and cowl plenum were available as factory options in 67 and 68 (although both were most likely removed as options before the end of the 68 model year). They were in the trunk when the car arrived at the original dealership, if ordered.  Both are rare. Some dealerships would not install them though, so that was then up to the owner.  Headers not available as a factory option in 69.

Cross ram was not on any 67 68 or 69 Camaros from the factory.

General Discussion / Trunk or counter?
« Last post by bc69 on May 02, 2016, 10:05:50 PM »
I am looking for a thread that involved what I thought was a old GM Employee clearing up the old wife's tale of the crossram and the headers for the Z's. I thought there was even a letter or memo that was also posted to verify the fact that they were all over counter orders and not sent in a trunk of new car if the option was ordered.
Can anybody help me here?

   Camaroman,
I was taught at a young age to go into third before going into reverse, if it gets tight before it pops into reverse back off the clutch a hair and it will fall into reverse.
   It's been working for me for well over thirty years. May I ask why you decided to go with the straight cut gears?

That confirms is it a model year format change and the format is not dependent on the vehicle application.

Thanks!!!

Originality / Re: Shorter 68 spoiler
« Last post by 1968RSZ28 on May 02, 2016, 08:50:14 PM »
Does anyone know the part number and the over all length of the shorter 1968 rear spoiler that was on some early 1969 Camaro's?
Any idea what build date the longer spoilers started?

GM part #3916633.
The length at the widest point of the factory rear spoiler on my '68 Z28 is approximately 59-1/16".
The narrower '68 spoiler was used on the '69 Camaro up to January - March of 69, when the wider 69 spoiler was phased in.
