I have the Fisher Body Service manual and it is very helpful. My interest is primarily in the assembly process and information like the AIM has. It would be beneficial to have the Fisher Body version of the AIM too.

Yep-quite familiar with the report-and it is truly outstanding. Just seems that a big and important part of the building of these vehicles is missing. It would be great if someone might find some docs at an estate sale around LA or something-----

General Discussion / Fisher Body Assembly Manual.. or similar possibilities?

Is there any assembly line guides, or manuals related to what happened behind the "Hole in the Wall" for how Fisher put things together on their end? Seems we would probably have some available if they exist. Also seems reasonable there must have been some guides for those who were on the Fisher side .There were a lot of mysteries on what happened during the body builds, and very little information on everything upstream on the build of the vehicles.

I'm unclear on the non A/C ducting. Seems there is a drivers side duct that comes off the side of the box and another one that attaches to the lower end?? I am unclear if different parts were used for D55 console option? Was it consistent across 67-69 models?

Is there any research information on the heater ducting configurations on the first generation Camaros? Seems to be a very confusing topic as to what ducts are used on these vehicles??

Ever since this Camaro was found a couple years back in an Oklahoma lake, I have wondered if it was lost in 1970 to a jammed throttle from a faulty motor mount. Seems it could very easily have been caused by one. Maybe they will have a report on it one day......................

Thank you for clarifying this. Camaros seem to be an eternal search for more interesting discoveries. Glad we have archaeologists like you digging up and sharing this history!

General Discussion / 1968 AIM revision question
« on: November 23, 2016, 04:32:13 PM »
In the 1968 factory AIM on the RPO Options Index sheet (A1) it shows a note about RPO D88 being removed on 2 28 1968. RPO D88 was apparently  Z-28 striping. This raises the question-was it possible to order optional striping on other Camaros?

Thank you for the clarification-these details get confusing and it is good to understand what's right!
As a follow up- did GM keep records of which vehicles CE engines, CC cases, or CT transmissions ended up in?

Usually is also stamped same on the gasket surface on the rear of the main case.

These kind of finds always beg the question-why was it taken off?!

I suspect there could be a large variety of these. Has anything been established on its purpose?

The Muncie factory has been scraped off for some time now. Looks like the birthplace of your Rockcrusher will soon be having baseballs crushed out of the park:

Originality / Muncie Transmission Assemblers
« on: March 30, 2016, 07:29:08 PM »
The Muncie transmissions have a number of unique stamp identifiers on the top rectangular boss at the rear of the top of the maincase. I have an understanding this is possibly an assemblers/inspectors stamp when originally put together?? Has anyone compiled a list of the different ones? I have seen a square with diagonal line and a diamond. I think there are many others as well. Is this stamp attributable to a single assembler/inspector?
There also seems to be a single letter stamped near the countershaft hole on the case fronts-any ideas on these?

Originality / Re: Muncie Shifter running production changes

The only thing that I can see that a spacer would do, is move the nut rearward more. Maybe this was done so there was more clearance from the shifters levers and the nut could be more easily accessed for tightening it??
