Make sure the horn works by applying a 12 volt source to one terminal on the horn and grounding the other terminal on the horn. You will have to pull the plastic connector off the horn first.
If the horn starts to work then you have to determine what is failing. Look at the fuse, horn relay and finally the wiring.

I noticed that the end of the rear deck lid is striped and has a short spoiler. My 69Z also has a short spoiler with the end of the rear deck lid is also striped. If the paint on this
69z is also original, then at least two early built LOS 69Z's had the rear stripes painted down the end of the rear deck lid from the factory.

Any comments ?

My early LOS built 69Z (Oct 1968) also has the stripes that go down the back of the trunk lid, I also have the short rear spoiler, and trunk lid torsion bars that are
different diameter. Paint is original as far as I can tell, no evidence of rear end accident, and I have the short rear stripes in the rear.

Here is a picture of my battery tray. I believe it to be original. 1969 z28  Los built October 1968.


Are you saying you cannot disassemble the piston from the connecting rod. If this is a full floating piston pin,
all you have to do is remove one retainer. The pin should push out of that side of the piston boss. Sliding right through the connecting rod.



Thanks for you input. Your picture shows the retainer for the piston pin. What really is needed is a nice close up photograph of the small end of the connecting rod, and the whole rod as well. Both
pieces are needed in order to have a full floating piston pin. You have posted a picture that
represents the piston side of the pin being retained. A picture is now needed that shows the connecting rod end. Hopefully showing the machining, and at this point should show wear pattern.

If you can please post the picture of the connecting rod.

So, my vehicle should have black standard wheel with a pebble-grained shroud. Does having the style trim group "05Z21AC" change anything. I have wood grain appliques around the radio.

Was looking at my Body Broadcast sheet for early (Oct 1968) built z28 camaro. Box 59, "Strg Wheel", on Body Broadcast sheet  has "EA" in Box. Trying to determine what type of steering wheel vehicle came with. I could not find a reference to "EA" code.

Any suggestions of where to look?

More proof that your vehicle is authentic.

Hans L - Like your comments. It appears that original 1969 camaro's with a factory console received a front carpet that was left front and right front. In this discussion z28's were discussed. Is it  fair to say that if an original 1969 z28 came with a factory floor console then the front carpet should be in two pieces. Another interesting fact that may assist in vehicle verification.

So, is it agreed that full floating piston pins do not generate a sound that makes the 302 sound different than a 302 with pressed piston pins.

Byron302, I didn't  realize that the full floating pins would make a difference in the sound. I do realize that solid lifters do make a cool sound.

X33RS, why didn't you use pressed pins instead of full floating pins? I believe Jerry McNeish uses pressed pins for the safety issue.

Thank you. I looked at the spread sheet. Good to know gas tank is original to vehicle.
