Mine had similar writing in Red as well, but mine was all numbers. I think I found the 487 written on something else in the interior, but can't remember what off the top of my head.

Nice looking car, I like the Color...

Any changes from stock in the engine? What numbers did you get off the dyno?

Is the car still in NY?

1969 - Orphans / 19N568469 V1218DZ Block
« on: September 11, 2017, 11:33:09 PM »
This is another engine from my fathers collection he stashed away years ago , a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 302 engine , chevy small block motor . This empty motor�Block has the following casting numbers�# 3932386� date coded L128 , stamped V1218DZ on the front stamping pad , the Vin�stamping by the oil filter looks to be 19N368469. The casting numbers in the timing area are : 371 G47 386 and HB outside the timing cover area . Casting numbers in the bell area are : 636 678 371 386 H3 . Casting numbers near the oil filter are :371 386 62N .
 ���� This 4 bolt main block was large journal 2.45 , and used for 1969 350 Corvette 300/350hp. , Camaro 1969 302 z/28 , and 1968 69 327 Passenger car nova chevelle .
 ��� This one as my uncle told me the story� goes , my father worked in the Oldsmobile dealership garage and had friends that worked at the chevy dealerships garages . He Got this block from one of the friends that worked at the chevy dealership . A guy had bought a 1969 Camaro Z/28 302 car new�put about� 5000 miles on it , he walked out to it next day and it was leaking oil on his garage floor . He took it back to the dealer to fix the oil leak they could 'nt fix it so�Chevrolet sent him out a warranty replacement block . They took every thing off the old block and put it in the new one and put the new warranty block in the car and away he drove.
 ���� My uncle said the problem with the block was the push in plug above the oil filter { as pictured } , and if you look at the picture it looks like the mechanic tried to peen it over more to seal it�, But it must not have worked .
 ��� This has been sitting for years�, about 35 or 40 , �It has surface rust from sitting around , the cylinder walls were greased� at one point and the spots where they were surface rusted it cleaned right of for the most part with a wire wheel in a drill { as pictured}.My father also greased the lifter bores again many years ago.
 ����� I have more pictures if needed , if you have any questions please ask , and if shipping is needed ask I might be able to do something .� I also have on another auction a mostly complete 1968 MO code z/28 302�engine, if you have any questions call 585 -682-5595 no text please this number don't get them .

Corvette places might have the dates your looking for.

Good luck.

I lost 5 points in Legends Judging in 2014 because I didn't have the two 3853846 bolts holding on my horns in my 05A 69 Z. I wonder if there is an appeal process.

« on: October 13, 2016, 05:21:20 PM »
Dave,

I mentioned where I purchased my lines from and I had no problems with any of them sealing. My guess is the flares would be the source of other peoples sealing problems. If the flare is not right it will be tough to get enough pressure to reform the stainless steel flare to seal with the just using the flare nut. That could be why some people say to preassemble the lines and crank them down a couple of times to make sure they don't leak.

I walked my original lines through their door and they compared my lines to their patterns, some small changes were made to how their lines would have fit to the contours of the floor boards. Any brake lines purchased from Classic Tube for a 1969 Z/28 in the last 5 years were patterned checked off of my car.

Dave, Check out Classic Tube as well, they build them. They will put the colored steel fittings on the stainless lines if you want that look. No fitment or sealing issues on my car.

General Discussion / Re: VIN Stamp Missing DZ302?
« on: September 07, 2016, 12:39:33 PM »
James,

Does the "no stamp anywhere" mean the transmission too?

It was my understanding that the gang stamp was made up and engine and trans was stamped at the same time, so the stamps should be exactly the same. With the aluminum trans cases being softer they took the stamp better. So if an engine VIN was missed I might expect the transmission to be too. I don't know if I have ever seen this documented, but I would think the VIN stamps would be added after the engine and transmission was installed in the subframe to make sure they will line up with the correct car.

Hey those bumpers look like they go on the valance panel. My car is in storage now so I can't take a look. Camaro Central has pictures on their web site of the bumpers LIC-201 are the rear and LIC-200 is the front.

The top holes are for Rubber Bumpers to save your paint. You can use your extra parts on the front plate, the front plate uses a different Rubber Bumper.

On my 69 it was spot welded on then painted with the firewall. The spot weld failed when I was removing the wires and there was no paint behind it.

I found the same differences about 3 years ago when I replaced my harness. The connector color is wrong in the headlights harness too. I sent them a email with pictures, and got no response.

The original springs have a indented pocket the plastic isolators ride in.
