I have a 16 ounce coke bottle that has air from the first fire up of the first ZL-1 ever built?  I'll trade it for a legit 814 alternator?   Any takers can just pm me.
Thanks in advance for your interest.

Unless you have the tire marked and are very very careful the turning the pinion and you ring the tire spinsis very tricky between 3.73 and 4.11.

Finned balancer on a 68 302 seems odd?

I'm not sure but I can look at mine Wednesday and see. I don't know how to prove its original, but I will post a pic or two if it has any markings at all.

Was the owner told it had been returned, or is it likely still with Pirkle Jr?
Don't know anything about Pirkle, but if he operates out of a business address rather than his home, for starters I'd search for a neighbouring business and ask the owner if he's been seen lately, at least you'd know if he's there.
I don't know Pirkle other than talking on phone a out this 814. Seemed to be a very straight forward nice guy. I'm not sure if it's a business address or a home address. One of the phones that has the recording says something class cars.

So now for the rest of the story.....I passed on the 814 based on Pirkle Jr's evaluation. Now the team camaro member that sent it to Pirkle still has not received his alternator back from pirkle. We also can't get Pirkle to answer either of the numbers that we have been texting and talking on! One says be taking a break....the other says mailbox is full.  This not only makes him look bad to me and the alternator owner.... But it makes me look bad even though I paid the owner his shipping charge to send it.  Any advice appreciated????

I think this is a photo of your NBR cowl tag from the facebook group.  I saw you said you would have posted it, if you had time to resize. I just saw it, and thought I could help with photo.




Thank you, but itís not my tag!  It is the one I was asking about though!

Thought all the known NBR tags were from the 09A timeframe, so was the scheduled build week also a typo?

Pic is posted on facebook group " 67-69 Camaro Owners"    if I didnt have to figure out resizing I'd  throw it up on here. lol

'NBR' tags are in the 09A time frame but were mis-stamped.

Fisher Body issued the tag when the production order was released to build the body for a specific dealer order. Fisher skipped some weeks; the tag date has a casual relationship to when the car was final-assembled by Chevrolet. For example, some 02D bodies were final-assembled mid-March '69. The Chevy schedule bank shuffled bodies after VIN assignment; cars were not build in body tag date or VIN order. Not unusual to see a D body tag with a lower VIN than a C date.

Thanks for the information, I was really hoping it was something extraordinarily rare! lol

What does NBR mean on the trim tag? It seems to be where it should be LOS or NOR.
Thx.

Chris, I am away on vacation & can not get to my glove box cover, can you measure the diameter of the "CUP" holder recess to the nearest 1/32"?

JIM

It's beveled so I'm not sure if which measurement you want but the floor of the holder is 2-9/32 ?
