I figured it out with BULLITT65 post. Now I can find more of the links I see referenced in posts. I hadn't realized how in depth those links went on some of the pages like Chassis. Thanks.

Currently trying to put together the correct set up for my brakes for my car, so wanted to get the correct numbers for the booster and MC. Thanks everyone.

Hi Bryon, or anyone...
I see a lot of great information as I surf posts on here, like the two you posted about the articles and even the one about the brake boosters, but I don't see those links on the main page of CRG at the top. Can someone point me on how to better utilize all the great info. you've all compiled, I feel like I'd bother you guys less (hopefully) with questions that already have answers? Thank for any guidance.

Thanks for the info Ed. I was really confused on what I was seeing in different posts with pics, but couldn't find an answer addressing that topic. Much appreciated.

Ugh, so dealing with the same type of situation with an ebay purchase as well. I recently bought a harmonic balancer from ebay, for my 68. I thought I had found one that was actually correct with the timing line lining up with the Keyway, 3896966 (I had posted in a earlier post asking about the differences between the 67/68 and 69 balancers). I was pretty excited to get it as it would be the correct one for my period correct 350 I was going to put in my car. Well, the box arrived from the USPS empty, a big hole in the side like someone had ripped it open, and then wrapped all up in plastic. So I'm going through the steps as others had highlighted in this post to try and get my money back. Should be fairly straight forward, but gotta wait 3 days to file a claim and hear back from the buyer, go to the Post Office to show them the damage, yada yada. I really just want the part, since it was one in 30 on ebay I had found.
Anyway, I just needed to vent to someone who understood the frustration of losing something via an ebay purchase, and a part I was really looking forward to getting. Thanks

Thanks Darrel and everyone,
I'll go and look closer this weekend when I'm up working on my car. Hope all is well.

Hi Gary,
I see them on the upper right side of the booster, when you're looking at the booster from the front of the car. I've also read where they've been upside down as well.

Sorry if this has been covered, but read through many threads to find this answer. On the Delco boosters, was Delco Moraine stamped into all of them? Or were there some that were OEM boosters without the logo. I have a booster on my car, dated in April on one tab and 9079 on the other tab, but no logo on the booster front. So don't know if this is correct. Thanks for your input...

When I saw the car, about a month ago, and I talked to him about it he said it was a special order yellow color.

File a claim with both Ebay and Paypal. I've been there before too, and both Ebay and Paypal stood behind me and refunded me.

I've actually seen this car in person. I'm by no means an authority, but I know the guy selling it (I went to buy a OE console from him for my 68, but it was for a 69). Anyway, seems like a really up front guy, but if anyone wants me to go check things out I'd be happy to try and set something up with him. I live in SLC, about 45 minutes south of where this is located. Thanks

Ok, thanks Ed. I'll stay on the lookout now that I know what I need specifically. Thanks for the input. Hope this helps someone else down the line.

And would this apply to balancers for the 350 CI, not just the Z/28 302? I found a multitude of 3896966 balancers but each one looks to be offset as described and not center with the Keyway. I did find one 7173 balancer, but the seller says it's for a 302, and it's the only one I could find with the timing line centered with the Keyway. Argh.....gonna be a tough part to locate I think.

That's what I was worried about, thank you for the notice. Any other info. on what I should look for in finding the right balancer, may a pic of the correct one, would be great. Thanks

I've read through all the posts, and online info, I can find and haven't really found a confirmed answer. I'm looking to get an original harmonic balancer for my 68 Camaro. I'm having rebuilt and install a 1968 350 CI to put into it. I've looked to try and decipher and find a correct harmonic balancer. I've narrowed the part number down to 3896966 (I think), but as I search that part number I see many variations. Can someone point me in the right direction of what I should be looking for to differentiate a 67/68 balancer from a 69 (as far as I can tell by what I've read they are different even with the same part number). There are a bunch for sale on Ebay, but some say they cover from 67 to 74, some say 69 to 74, some say 67/68 and I don't know enough about them to know for sure which one I should seek out. Thanks for any input.
