Chevrolet Dealer Technical Service Bulletins for 1969
« on: August 11, 2007, 07:20:05 PM »
While at the swap meet this week at Hot August Nights in Reno, NV I scored some Chevrolet Service News and Chevrolet Dealer Product Campaign Bulletins for model year 1969.  The Service News documents completes my set for 1969 and goes most of the way through 1970.  The Dealer Campaign Bulletins instruct dealers as to how to address known quality issues with customers via various "campaigns".  Each of these bulletins also include the form letter that the dealer was to use when notifying a customer of an "issue".  Those two finds were good enough in and of themselves. . . .

However, what was really a find was what appears to be a complete set of the Chevrolet Dealer Techinal Service Bulletins for 1969 which give instructions to the dealers as to how to fix problems reported back to Chevy by customers after purchasing cars.  Some of the items of interest include:

- Low Fuel Economy
- If requested by the customer, procedure for removal of head restraints prior to midnight 1/1/1969
- Wind Noise issues with ventless window glass
- A/C Hose Rupture - 1968 Camaro (includes instructions for core support seal strips)
- Changeover from Chambered Exhaust to Dual (interim) to Dual with Resonators (final solution) for Z/28
- Possible incorrect wiring of low fuel warning light / cars with gages prior to VIN #'s N517033 and L504760
- Hard Hot Cranking / 350 cid 300 HP engines
- Spedometer Errors
- Door Lock Binding / 2 Door Coupes
- Battery Trickle Drain especially on Stored Vehicles
- Fuel Line "Ticking" Type Noise on cars with 2 fuel lines
- Hesitation on Accleration / 327 and 396 engines w/2Bbl Carbs
- Crankshaft Pulley Cracking 307/ 327/ 350 engines with A/C
- Brake Moan with car moving in reverse, Camaro and Nova with Drum Brakes
- A/C Hose Damage 69 Camaro with V8 engines
- Spedometer cable oil leakage at the transmission

These are the topics out of the total that seem to have the most relevance to 69 Camaros.  I have scanned all of these document and will post them if I can get the file sizes small enough.  Currently they are all in PDF format and at least 1 MB in size.  Hopefully a conversion to JPEG will allow for file size reduction with still adequate resolution.

Nice score Richard!  I'd love to see the bulletin on the low fuel warning light wiring.  Thanks in advance.

Looks like they fixed the low fuel warning light fairly early at LA
