Til Salg! – Pris kr. 172.000,-

Kontakt mig via mail: camaro@simonholm.com eller på mobil: 31 12 24 11.

1967 Camaro SS nysynet (8 år til syn) og med masser af performance udstyr, solid og kraftig motor samt forstærket 4-gears automatgearkasse. Bilen kører rigtigt godt og ligger godt på vejen. Jeg har haft bilen i 13 år og har gennem tiden fået lavet rigtigt meget ved den

Jeg sælger den, fordi jeg har indset, at jeg ikke længere har den tid og det overskud, der skal til. Lakken er slidt, og der skal laves rust (pladedele medfølger) – se https://simondy.wordpress.com/2013/08/11/rust-der-skal-laves/.

Installing Heads and Meassuring Pushrod Length

Friday, 16. July 2010

My newly washed aluminum MoTown heads with new and stiffer springs are now back on the block. They were installed today so I could measure the length of the pushrods required for my new solid roller cam.

Installing Heads

If you need to find out the length of the pushrods required for your valvetrain, Geometry Lesson by Jeff Smith on carcraft.com is a good article to read.

If you need the torque specs when you are bolting your US-engine together, you can find them among other things at boxwrench.net.


Painting the Drum Brakes for the Second Time

Monday, 1. February 2010

The first time I painted the drums I did not know what I was doing so it is actually a surprise that they have lasted this long.

Drum Brake - Sand Blasted / Zinc Primed
Drum Brake - Sand Blasted and Grinded
Both drums had been sand blasted some time ago, the one on the left is what they looked like before I started working on them. The drum on the right has had zinc primer applied. Before zinc primer was applied I grinded the drums to get off all the surface rust then cleaned them with cellulose thinner.
Drum Brake - Painted Black
Mounted Drum
When the primer was dry enough to apply paint, the drums were painted with enamel flat black paint. Mounted drum brake with wheel spacer.

I have finally found a place to put some of the stickers I have collected through the last eight year. This is my new toolbox for the trunk in my Camaro.

New Parts Arrived Today

Friday, 4. September 2009

New parts from summitracing.com and up22.com arrived today. From Summit came my new camshaft, which I have carefully selected with tech support from Summit and Comp Cams. It came along with a lot of other very nice parts as you can see in the picture. I am of course looking forward to have all the goodies installed and find out how my new valve train performs. But it will be a while before I get that far, I have some rust issues and other things to deal with first.

New Parts - Camshaft, etc.

From up22.com came my fiber glass trunk lid with spoiler, rear bumper and two front inner fenders. I wish I had googled up22.com before I ordered, in my opinion their products are not of high quality. I have checked the trunk lid and it needs a lot of work and trimming before it can be fitted. I should have ordered from vfnfiberglass.com or glasstek.com instead.


Engine Rebuild – part 1

Thursday, 16. July 2009

Friday evening Michael pulled the engine so it was ready for me to work on. I started to take it apart Saturday morning and everything went fine. It quickly became evident that the cam shaft and lifters needed to be replaced. Both the intake and exhaust lobes on the cam had been worn quite heavily on cylinder number six.

This week I spent cleaning the engine, painting it and checking it for wear and tear. Mechanically, everything seems to be fine and I only need to change the cam and lifters. That is until I decided to get a solid (mechanical) roller cam instead of a hydraulic flat tappet.

Some of the things I did this week:

Intake Manifold Needs to Be "Ported"
Intake Manifold "Ported"
As you can see in the first picture the intake manifold has some leftover aluminum from the casting and it should be grinded. The leftover aluminum is removed in the second picture and it was quite easy to remove.
Valve Covers Painted
Engine Block Ready for Paint
The valve covers have been painted. The engine block is ready for paint.

Wheel But No Tire

I could not wait to see how the Foose wheel looked on the Camaro.

Tires for the Bigger Wheels

Monday, 25. May 2009

After checking a lot of tires at tirerack.com, these made it to my final selection:

BFG g-force Drag Radial tire_bfg_gforceta_kdw2_1000 tire_ku_ecsta_xsku36_1000
BFGoodrich g-Force T/A Drag Radial
 
BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2 Kumho Ecsta XS
Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec Kumho Ecsta MX
Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec Kumho Ecsta MX

Then considering all the pros and cons I ordered 4 Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Specs at the tirerack.com.


Dead Weight

Wednesday, 20. May 2009

The engine in my Camaro engine is not breathing the way it should and is therefore a bit exhausted.

For some time I have felt that the engine was lacking power. And after doing a 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) test the car was a whole second slower that it used to be. Later a knocking sound could come and go untill the beginning of this week the knocking sound would stay when pushing it only a bit.

A quick check of the engine reviled that the exhaust valve on cylinder #6 is not opening as much as it should. So either the cam, the lifter or the push rod or all of them need to be changed.

Another thing I found looking through the engine:

Torn Distributor Weights

The weights in the distributor have been torn by the pins that hold them and you could easily move them from side to side and up and down. Not something I have seen before.


Bigger Wheels

Tuesday, 19. May 2009

I have decided that my Camaro needs bigger wheels. In my opinion 17″ front and 18″ rear look better than 15″ and they will also suit my project. A kind of street Trans Am racer with a modern look, is perhaps what describes my project best.

When I got my 15″ Centerline Warrior wheels I was also looking at the American Racing Torq Thrust II wheels. Now I am looking at them again but everybody has these it seems and I want something a bit different. If I was building a “traditional” Trans Am racer I would go with the Minilite copies, V48 from Vintage Wheel Works with the center painted black. I was also looking at the AR Torq Thrust M with the black center, but then I found these:

Foose Legend Gray

The Foose Nitrous Legend Gray

They look like the TT-IIs only better, in my opinion. They will also fit the future paint scheme on my Camaro and they come in the sizes I need. Looking like that  they are perfect for the Dark Horse.

Now I need to figure out which tires I should get..


What Have Been Done Lately

Monday, 4. May 2009

My old battery was not performing well anymore so it was time to get a new one. I wanted to get one with high cranking power so the Optima RedTop battery seemed to be a good choice. And it was, the Optima sure does have a lot of cranking power!

I also installed four new ball joints, a drive shaft loop for safety, a few wires under the carpet and then I changed the oil, the oil filter and the spark plugs.
