Research Topics & Reports / Re: 186 and 041 heads used for 1969
« on: September 28, 2023, 08:14:51 PM »
I know that Jerry has seen at least one 041 head on a 69 Z that he thought was original.

I have 186 heads that I pulled off of a L48 from a Caprice. Never seen them in a Camaro though....

Is there a succession plan?
CRG is a group, not an individual.

3921967 looks like a valid block number. Not common from my limited experience.
What's the engine stamping (by the distributor)?
Could the 4888 head # actually be 4886?

Hmm, with AC. Can you post a picture of the underhood? What's the build month?

All the relevant 67-69 TSB's are on site. 68:
I question that it was a late release. The AIM show a 11/3/67 drawing date and no revisions.
Time to query owners of 68's with AC.

The seal appears to be already installed on top of the core support, due to no further instructions in the AIM to remove adhesive backing or anything further.
It was done on the line. AIM clearly says to remove backing. See item #10.
Looks like they changed to the 69 style late in 68.

That KD1 description is not from GM, but from Vintage Vehicle Services.
For some reason, many Canadian cars don't have KD1 listed in the documentation but should.

That's actually the third time I've seen that mistake on a tag....

For 6 figures, they can provide real pics.
It's a reasonable stamp, but I want to see a real pic of the whole pad, in focus.

General Discussion / Re: This stamp look ok

Looks OK. Sandblasted or such.

Some records survive.
Read the assembly article - VIN's were done at the assembly plant.
MA6 was only $79. Memories are not reliable..... :)

Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z28 interesting engine stamp
« on: August 13, 2023, 03:35:07 AM »
It is a first day build convertible built in late August. Vin ends in 000226 and Fischer Body #18. As most of you know, Van Nuys VIN numbers were sequential and counted all cars built. This included Impalas, Chevelles, Corvairs and I believe Novas.
Not true. The VINs were incremented by model. Only full-size was also built at LOS.
Yes, pretty low VIN, but production was ramping up and it was built about the 6th day of production. 18th convertible with deluxe interior.

Engine code stamp looks OK, but VIN is a restamp.

Does anyone know this car? Does it have its CX transmission?
Car has no docs other than appraisal.  Restamped block (now JM, used to be JJ), 70 TH400. Orig axle.

And there was no HD clutch production for Camaro - Tonawanda records also confirm that. Seen several restamps....
