Decoding/Numbers / Re: Distributer..Possible factory mistake??
« on: March 03, 2018, 06:25:48 PM »
I just pulled out the 1967-1968 Camaro Reference Book by John Hooper. Under the casting numbers for 1967 distributers, 327/275hp (auto) 1111249
                                                                                                                                                                                 327/275hp (manual) 1111150
Now I am very curious. What would be the difference between the two?? I would really like to know why the 1111150 is in my car with automatic transmission...
This is the best Camaro forum so I am hoping the right person reads this post.

Decoding/Numbers / Distributer..Possible factory mistake??

My 67rs 327/275hp built in Dec. of 1966 is supposed to have a 1111249.  Mine has a 1111150 that was supposed to be in a 283/195hp (manufacture date Dec5/1966). Is it possible the wrong numbered distributer was put in the car because maybe they didn't have enough correct distributers that day? Date code for this "wrong" distributer is right on for the build. This 1111150 seems to have a worn bushing, but I don't want to rebuild it unless it came with my car. Thx!

Originality / Re: 67rs pinstripes

If anyone else is interested, I found something pretty close. 3M 72202 Scotchcal Striping Tape.  1/16"x3/32"x3/32". The gap is a little narrower, but at least the stripes are right. Found on many sites but ebay has the 150' roll for 22 bucks.

Originality / 67rs pinstripes
« on: December 28, 2017, 08:52:27 PM »
When my 67rs was repainted years ago, the side pinstripes were not re-applied. I am searching for the correct size vinyl pinstriping to use instead of painting them. So far I have not located a dual pinstripe that measures 1/16"x1/8"x3/32". The closest I have found is 1/16"x1/8"x 1/8" made by Prostripe. Has anyone had any luck finding the correct size? Thanks

Decoding/Numbers / Carter Quad #?
« on: July 06, 2014, 07:41:01 PM »
I have narrowed down what Carter Quad I need for my 67rs that was built Dec. 7, 1966. (California A.I.R.) automatic tranny. The early carb 7037202 or the mid carb 7037212. Anyone have thought about the correct carb?

On occasion, did the factory install carbs meant for standard trannys onto a car with automatic tranny?

Good to know. However, my car is a automatic, not standard. Should it have been a 7037212?

Decoding/Numbers / Rochester Quad Verify?
« on: April 21, 2014, 09:32:14 PM »
This Rochester quad carb came with my 67rs 327/275hp.
7037213  Under these number are the numbers 2726. I assume this is the date code.

My car was built in Dec. of "66"
Does 2726 mean the carb was built the 272nd day of "66"?

Sounds good! Thanks

Decoding/Numbers / Block Casting Numbers?
« on: January 31, 2014, 08:59:05 AM »
Is it possible to read the block casting numbers and casting date on the rear of a 327 block while it's still in the engine bay? And take pictures of them? Is it too tight of a fit to stick your head back there to see them? Thanks!
