2P-10 Adhesive. Plastic or wood. Lightening fast when using the activator. Anybody who builds furniture knows about it. You'll rip a piece of wood apart before the bond joint fails, somewhat like panel adhesive in our auto biz. JB weld can work. There are many choices in the auto repair and other industries.

To Sauron327, my personal email address is JST69Z28@gmail.com if you could send me Jody's .pdf files, much appreciated. 

At this point, I am going to get a dial indicator and try the concentric and parallel checks.  I have the time and want to learn that.   
OK

M20, and when I put one in 20 years ago the needle bearing was recommended to me at that time over the bushing, and reading the CRG report it also says to use the needle bearing.   
Bellhousing misalignments don't like pilot bearings for one thing. Jody told me to use a bronze bushing he shipped me for his Muncie and not the pilot bearing I had. For decades the oillite bronze bushing is all we used. And those cars were/are beat on mercilessly. Jody or someone else can explain in greater detail. What does your input shaft look like after that failed pilot bearing got at it?

The CRG article only addresses concentric alignment and not parallel. Both should be measured. Parallel affects concentric readings. I have a large box of shims for parallel adjustment. Jody's Transmissions will not warranty his trannys without this procedure being documented. You can buy a small shim kit from him instead of a large box I have. Jody sent me the instructions in PDF. If you get a kit from him he can send it to you, as well as answer any questions. He has offset dowels if you do end up needing them, is great to deal with and did a M22Z for a job of mine. I use a dial indicator to check alignment.
What tranny are you running and why a needle pilot bearing instead of a bronze pilot?

Originality / Re: Undercoating inside of the doors

I remember this old post: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=14385.msg126982#msg126982

That is helpful. I've never seen heavy body color on undercoating inside the door. If John said it did then I'll go by that. And by the doors I have for car I'm doing now, it makes sense. I suppose being asphalt based the paint did not adhere forever. Many times when I have to do hammer and dolly work on doors the undercoating(evidence) needs to be removed to do it properly.

Every car I've had, including customer cars and extra untouched spare doors have heavy undercoating after paint on the backsides of doorskins. Pics later as time allows.

After falling down the rabbit hole…..
https://www.hprubberstamp.com/images/Pullman_Catalog.pdf

I’ll have to measure the one on my wiper motor….
calculations of .375=3/8”=Pullman 3
Calculations of .281=9/32”=Pullman 2 1/2
Looks to be Roman font

Nice find. I looked through the brochure and the Roman font. The 6 and 7 don't appear to match up with Roman on the 67 model stampings.

I installed 3000 fonts on my computer and will try to get through most of them this weekend. Hopefully I can find a match and then someone to make a stamp with it.
I've been in the business for decades. If I need certain artwork done for a job, I draw it myself. Then a printer or sign shop scans it and produces the product I need. Very easy process. And sign shops have programs that can manipulate any font or drawing.

I used the 1/4" tall stamps which were correct for the motor I did. If someone wants to borrow mine just give me postage. If I was going to lose sleep over an exact font match, a number stamp could be partially used and the incorrect portion hand painted. It's my job to do work that small.

.25 is a tad too small.
Use the .375 stamps if that's what yours is. The result can become larger after the stamp is loaded with paint as mine did. And any letter or number that is rounded on top or bottom is taller than one that is not rounded. An "O" is taller than an "E". Quite evident when someone hand letters, does not know this and their job is wrong. Any sign painter or artist might be happy to duplicate your font with precision.

I just picked out a font years ago that Mason Row PEGz had available at the time. It is not exact, the 6 is different. I've been in the lettering, graphics, custom paint and auto restoration biz forty years, and used a color I had in stock. You can use anything at the hardware store or buy an ink that's close. Doing the stamp is ridiculously easy. Maybe you can find a stamp company with the exact font or have one made if a judge is going to fail you for a slight difference. Not sure if everyone who restores a wiper motor is adding the stampings...I never looked.

I've easily found those before. You are not searching enough. Pretty much anything can be found. You'll find a lot more than this if you look: https://www.corvettecentral.com/c2-63-67/windshield-wipers/wiper-washer/63-67-windshield-washer-pump-repair-rebuild-kit-652051?returnurl=%2fsearch%3fcurrentsearchcategoryid%3d%26q%3dwindshield%2bwasher%2bpump

They were stamped like that. Here's one from an early 67 I did using Mason Row stamps. Car is gone and don't believe I have a TT pic anymore. Sent it to Kurt.

I own an LOS 67 and have had some roll through my shop and did rotisserie restorations on them. They had virgin, untouched original black bellies. Curious about the percentage of cars that had blue bottoms.

The reason the codes are different for the same color are tints in paint to achieve various gloss levels, hence the formulas. Less glossy colors will appear darker. Just like when shooting BC/CC. Uncleared base looks darker than cleared base.
