Decoding/Numbers / 68 z Caliper stamps
« on: August 13, 2021, 02:20:59 AM »
My four caliper pieces have stamps on them.
The two inner pieces have MR3 stamped on them. One outer has MY3 and the other outer JN3 stamped

I cannot find anything on this. Does anybody else have stamping like this? Or know the meaning.

Pics below.
Next post has rest of the pics


Decoding/Numbers / Headlight Mounting bracket date stamp?
« on: July 31, 2021, 12:47:33 AM »
Here is what I have. I believe the top one is a service replacement from an accident in the past. Also the bucket for this bracket is painted black instead of anodized.
The lower one has an anodized bulb bucket and the letter F stamped in the sequence of the mounting bracket. Is the F a date stamp for May? The car is a Norwood 6D
Thank you.

Originality / Gas tank and heater box markings

68 Z - 6B

Tank had been painted black somewhere back in time so I had a shop remove the paint. I discovered these numbers while cleaning it.
Included the gas tank date stamp as well.

Also on the heater box was this number.


Decoding/Numbers / Both ends of the production year~

Found this on FB in the same group, DZ302
Apparently, same dates:
Factory timing was spot on from casting to assembly.

The orange pics are late production 69
The faded pics are early production 68

Below are the faded pics. Next post are the orange pics.

General Discussion / Help to ID this bolt

Greetings and thank you in advance~

68 z28. All original. I had my local shop remove the motor and sent it to Jerry for rebuild.
I intended to supervise the reassembly with the mechanic. The mechanic was diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a cell phone. He will be ok but is out for at least several months.

So now I will do it and use their resources and a helper they will provide. I have gone through his bags   I have everything organized and ready to go. Except this bolt. I don't recognize it. It was in the mix. It might not even go with the car.

Thank you~

Attached are photos of three. Are any of the three correct for 68 z28?
If not, a pic of a correct one would be helpful.
Thank you~

I have been shopping around and the prices are all over the place.

What is considered the best?

Stay Safe~

Decoding/Numbers / Question about Caveat Emptor posts
« on: April 27, 2020, 11:01:17 PM »
I have learned a lot following these posts.
They appear to be only ebay listings.

Is there a reason that?

As an example, if I found a Z/28 listing with pics that had serious issues on Hemmings.

Would it be ok, or proper, to post that listing?

Thank you,
