Originality / Re: Camaro driveshaft identification and . . .
« on: November 17, 2016, 06:11:11 PM »
Good afternoon bcmiller.  Here is what went on with my driveshaft. I measured it coming in at U-joint to U-joint centers at 48.5 inches.  Sold it to a p[erson who was looking for 1970 - 1981 shaft.  He calls me up after a week and says it is not right for his '79 Camaro for whatever reason.  The older U-joint with the spring retaining clips were on shafts prior to 1975 and the newer U-joints with a heated plastic installation process were from GM from '76 and up.  I had sold him the spring retaining clip U-joint shaft.
Now, a question; what is the length of a  a 69 shaft versus a shaft from 1970 - 1981 measured center of U-joint to center of U-joint? 
Is a '69 shaft 49"   and a 70 - 81 shaft 48.5"  ??
Thanks!

3782609 and GM3 are on the front of the pump.  S3 in raised letter / number is on the rear.
Hope that did not mix anyone up with my miscue.!

a wee bit of cleaning.  Is it okay to sandblast the pump without destroying its originality?   
'63 Vette water pump p/n 3782609 with raised code GM 3 on the reverse of the water pump.  The beastie is valuable and therefore stands the question.

Thanks in advance Gentlemen!!

Originality / Camaro driveshaft identification and . . .
« on: November 06, 2016, 03:09:33 PM »
How do I go about identifying a First Gennie Camaro or Firebird driveshaft?  Are there codes somewhere on the shaft?  Is the driveshaft length different to Second Generation Camaros?  Any differences between  P'Glide / T350 / T400 or standard trans shafts?
The stripes are there but unfortunately, have long been painted over and have lost their lustre.

When did GM stop using the spring-loaded 'hard on the ole eyes' retaining clips on their U-joints?  Seems like a load of questions, and, you are right, but,
this is  the correct no-nonsense place!!

Thanks Gentlemen!!

Yup, I'll take a couple of pics of the 29202 DH unit.  It might take a bit of time but I'll do it.
Also have a 29251 RJ xxxx which is minus the "70" .. To me it looks like something happened between say March 69 and May 69 in which carbs were
made w/o the attending "70" numerics?? 
Seems odd I have 2 of these carbs with the usual "70" missing.
Again, give me some time and I get some pics of the both beasties.

What is the difference between  units 7029202 DH  and  29202 DH other than the obvious "70"?   I have a 29202 DH  098 9  with an encircled number on the rear of the main body reading 7037931 ..
Thanks in advance.

On the Car Popular advertisement with the 313 intakes above sent in by ko-lec-tor, I see a CANADA with a square under it just before the firing order.  On my 313 intake, I do not have the CANADA and the square, hence the question.  Just 'cause I do not have these 2 symbols, does it mean therefore that I do not have a 313 Canadian intake?  Who applied these symbols to the intakes on cars to be imported into Canada.
Thanks!

Wayyy back in March of 1973 I bought a set of 3796243 Push rods (blue stripes) for the price of $19.20 from a Chevrolet Car dealer
