GM parts book lists that number for 67-68.  But I suppose could also be 69.
There was one on my 69's original tank. 08D 69.

Hey Vince!

I knew Merle and got to be one of the first on his property! I bought the car in July it took a while before the estate could sell cars as state had to okay it! Yes car is very original numbers matching! Merle sold to Paul walker & Roger Rodas from Fast & Furious in 2011 They took it to have a 100K resto done and bought a orig Cross Ram for it and car was in line to be restored! Before they did anything they paid Jerry McNeish to verify it as it's a Van Nuys Car! They had their fatal accident Nov 2013 and family asked Merle if he wanted it back  so he went to ID and picked it up and kept till his passing! Whats really strange is Merle brought it to my house I think in 1982 when he bought it to show it to me and 35 years later it's back in my driveway and I now own it! Also when guys on this site see it they say you need to restore it and save it! This car is saved! It is unreal to drive it runs perfect! Guys think its a rust bucket It's not the car sat for 20- 30 some years in the desert under a car port the elements blew over it and it got surface rust but you open doors and still orig carpet dash not cracked and trunk perfect it was all saved by car port! No rust through any where! It will be very hard to find a original Z28 RS Endura Bumper Camaro in this shape! Tks for the interest and Mr Merle Duprey I Thank You! Bill
Such a cool story and history on your Z. I love how you're keeping it the way you found it. If you're able to do it in your climate great. Around here and down south you probably wouldn't have a car left after a while. RIP Paul Walker...

I have a set of 8 GM ring packages, #10117709. Would these be suitable for a street 427, with Sealed Power L2300NF30 pistons?
TIA, Jess
Have you looked up the specs and compared them to the pistons and the bore?

No, they were not a split nut. They're called a "rivnut."

My factory one:

I do, but I'll have to look for it.

You wouldn't happen to have a picture of the other side to show the crimp?  :)

Dave,

  Is that rough cut factory?

Mike
The 4 speed hole? Yes, that's factory cut.

Mild Modifications / Re: Tri-Power 427 fit under 69 SS hood?
« on: March 26, 2018, 06:55:26 PM »
I guess it would depend on how much of a down side there was that came with the better looks.
The 69 Z/28 cross ram is a very cool looking set up. But I have read the reviews from back in the day, and seen guys try to make the most of the system today. For me (even if cost wasn't an issue) I would never run it on a street car. There is a performance boost from it, but would be very under utilized, and run crappy the rest of the time. No thanks.
On the other hand I have heard positive stories about tri-power vettes that were dialed in and ran great. It may take tinkering with them more often to get the most out of it, but it sounds like a fun set up. I don't know the performance numbers of a tri-power vs 4 barrel though to compare.
Small blocks that have to wind to the moon versus big block 427s. I'd say Kelley is going to be more than good to go on both the cool factor as well as power.

The late build '69 Camaro subframe also used different sway bar bushing brackets. The earlier '69 frames, the hole distance on the bracket is 2 1/2" and the later frame used 2 3/4" spacing. If you ever need to get those later brackets they are also used on '70 1/2 and up Camaro frames.

Good to know. Thanks Warren. Thankfully my originals are good to go.

Wow. $650. Maybe if it was close to restored...

The frame in question is used on late build '69 Camaro's starting in Aug of 1969. The '69 Camaro did not use the charcoal canister, but the '70 Nova did. Camaro and Nova share the same frame.

Well whudaya know. It's a good day when you learn something new in my book. Here is my 08D 69 subframe with the elongated hole. I never would have given it a seconds thought.

That's an old friend of mines shop.

See if you can find out if the M22 is original and the axle code, please.

They havenít answered any of my questions.
I'll see what I can do,  but I haven't talked to him in years. I know someone that still horse trades with him. I'll see what he says.

Do the math.

Chevy built 20,302 '69 Z/28s over a span of 445 calendar days.
Don't you mean 40,302? I think that's close to the current number that are left anyway. ;-)
