I need to go thru my box. It just needs seals and new grease.
And a good cleaning!

Well your almost ready for summer, to enjoy your labor!

Received the Steering gearbox rebuild kit (with races) yesterday. Probably will rebuild it Wednesday evening. Still have to get the race out of the threaded cap.

Replaced the shocks on the Monza More Door. 3 of the 4 were useless. I could pull them open and push close without much pressure. Took a quick test drive. It was getting dark and I haven't adjusted the lights yet. Much nicer ride, but interesting with the light set that low.. It will be a safer ride now for Donna when she gets to drive it.

I am the lucky one.

This Monza got the set of Delco Pleasurizers I had. I took off the Gabriels with Clark's part numbers. No idea how long they were on, but the paint and rubbers were still in good condition.

I finally have the races and bushings out of the gearbox. The box and its components are all cleaned and ready for reinstall with the new kit I received. I will put the races and bushings in the freezer tomorrow to prep them for installation in a couple of days.

I found my 3 PG selectors I had pulled from the cars I scrapped. I removed the safety switches and sent the selectors into the scrap metal bin. I these switches have low ohm readings. If not at least they can be played with to see if they can be fixed.

Lots more Vair metal is headed to the scrap bin as I go though bins getting ready for Helen. I am already down one large bin that is not going. Most hit the scrap bin as there has been no interest in 2 years of carry the parts to the shows.

Update on the Monza. We now have 240 miles on it. It is running fine and rides better with the new shocks. Steering box, headlight aiming and engine left heat shield are the 3 next items to resolve. Still waiting on my clock. when received, it will install clock, PG safety switch and Tach. Then the rest of the instruments under the center dash. LED lights are after the previous items.

Working on a new photo array for the Sig line, Mel. Just not a high priority. Building a 12 x 26 addition to storage shed to bring Camaro home. Need a secure area at home to work on it.

For those who are wondering about the data plate on the car, here it is.

I also included the replacement engine code number. The engine I pulled out was not the original, so there is no need to even address its number at all.

I put the bushings and races in the garage freezer this morning. They will be ready for installation tomorrow afternoon.

Tomorrow afternoon, the headlight bezels are being removed for headlight aiming. I got the tool to aim the lights right the first time. Hopkins) Headlight Aimer Kit Model B4A Headlamp Service Center. I have some spare time waiting on a ahipping company's 18 wheeler to deliver the Camaro's windshield tomorrow afternoon.

I love it! I want one!
Let us know how it works. Seems to be tons of them on eBay.
A run down of what all makes a complete kit would be nice to see if I'm ordering a complete set.
Thanks!

Keep the cost down when looking for one. Mine was $39.99 with $26 shipping. Lowest cost out there and this one looks new. I have 4 vehicles I can use it on immediately. This is something a club should look into as a loaner.

Here is a link on how to use it. No magic and really low tech.

Too slow again. There were several cheap ones on eBay last night but they seem to be gone now. I guess this forum is a good sales tool.

I have tried, several times, to purchase this tool; always too late or the price was too high for my "good enough for government" salary.

Pretty sure that site is a scam. Looks like they just copy eBay ads.
