 I measured my 67, standard interior, door release handle stud and it stands out at 5/8" using your method of measuring.
Compared to your picture mine looks to have a higher collar.
It also has no center tap for a screw (your looks like is has it in the picture).

Originality / 1002 7 blade fan - 68 396
« Last post by rod396 on June 21, 2017, 08:40:24 PM »
I was wondering if the "1002" (last 4 #'s) 7-blade clutch fan would be correct for a 68 L34, non-AC, Camaro?
The info I have is a bit ambiguous - "limited usage". No reference to Big Block.
If not, then which would be the correct fan for this application?
Thank you.

In reply to Ed - I obtained another one, and it fit perfectly; actually arrived the same day of my entry on this forum.

Thanks Sauron327 but I'm referring to the door lock.  Installed it extends out 1/2 inch.  Not sure if that's std or dlx.  I have deluxe door panels.

The mechanic says he can see the carb leaking and that it needs rebuilt. It was recently rebuilt maybe 4 years ago, and has very few miles on it, but I imagine this can happen when a car sits for an extended time. I'll ask him to show me when I pick it up.

I can't find my receipt or any communication I had with whoever rebuilt it last. Suggestions on a reputable company?

Where is it leaking?  May be just a stuck float but leaking fuel onto a hot manifold is a fire hazard.  Get that fixed ASAP. Lars Grimsrud, Henry Olsen, and Cliff Ruggles are 3 of the best experts on Q-Jets and tuning. Lars rebuilt mine and it operates perfectly.

Maintenance / 69 camaro new front and rear springs - stance
« Last post by abiddle on June 21, 2017, 04:06:33 PM »
This is just an informational post for whoever may be curious. SS350 with original powertrain and non-AC, a spacesaver tire in the trunk. I replaced the original front and rear 5-leaf springs and installed new Koni shocks. I was worried about the replacement springs because they are a generalized version of what was available as original equipment. Here is what I purchased, and a picture of the resulting stance.

1967-1969 Front Coil Springs SB w/o AC Premium Quality
1968 - 1969 Leaf Springs Set, Multi Leaf, Rear, 5 Leaf, Pair, USA
2 of : 1967 - 1969 Camaro Koni Red Front Shock, Each
1967 - 1969 Camaro Koni Red Multi Leaf Rear Shock, Each

I don't know if its appropriate on this forum to mention the vendor, so I will leave that out until told otherwise.

About 15 years ago I replaced the deluxe door panels on my 69. Unfortunately I used the original fuzzies which are now shot, so I need to do the job again with some NOS felts I've squirreled away. The original fuzzies guided me on where to drill the holes into the metal band of the new door panel.

I used a box of brad or small gauge finishing nails. Cutting both ends off, then bending them into the shape of a staple to fit the holes, pushing through the felt and door panel, then bending them on the back side to hold the inner felt into place. I was happy with the result, but this time I will look for a less shiny nail, maybe something in a dark brass. I would be happy to post a pic if someone with an original wants to provide a comparison of the appearance.

Just my opinion, but I concur with the fuel issue idea. My first instinct says it's not getting enough fuel, so it hesitates when accelerating or when the demand for fuel increases. But sill has marginally enough supply at cruise speeds so that it runs ok.

Andy, if you are a little daring you may want to try and rebuild it yourself. While the Holley may be an easier rebuild, than most, your still doing the same thing (taking apart blowing out all the ports, inspecting, cleaning with carb cleaner, or similar product, and then reassembling with the rebuild kit)
This way if it starts to act up you will have some knowledge of what us going on.

Worst case scenario- you do a terrible rebuild and have to bring the carb to the mechanic anyway, so you would just be out the cost of the rebuild kit, and your time.
Best case- you learn a little bit about the rochester, and become a resource on the CRG for having rebuilt one, and your car either runs better or you eliminate a possible issue on your car.

Suspension- If you recently just replaced the springs, front and rear, there is some lag time for the springs to settle. In your pic it looks like the front sits a tad higher than the rear. The fronts will settle and come down over the first year. Some of this is dependent on what type of springs were used. You may want to start a separate thread for that. :)
