General Discussion / Engine painting video
« on: December 18, 2018, 06:05:21 AM »
A much discussed topic. Here is actual video of the engines being painted in the factory. Notice the water curtain to catch the overspray. And notice the third guy painting the one engine blue (or black) and the next one yellow.

General Discussion / CE motor stamping info
« on: December 16, 2018, 06:28:24 PM »
There's been a lot of discussions about the letters after the CE code, e.g. CE9A45361. I happened upon this page in a pile of documents.

General Discussion / Engine pictures
« on: August 14, 2018, 08:03:18 PM »
JohnZ has redone his engine dress article (and Flint engine article) for the site. The original is
I'd like to replace some of the Corvette engine pictures with Camaro engine pictures. Specifically, I'll looking to replace pics 6 & 7 that show the accessories and AIR/smog mounted on the engine. These can be 67-69. I'd rather the accessories picture be of a restored engine and without belts. The smog picture can be a side shot that shows the hose and tube routing (out of car would be clearer, but in-car would be fine).
I figure that these pics are probably already out there, and you guys would know. :)


Research Topics & Reports / Original ignition coils
« on: August 02, 2018, 03:17:45 AM »
Lots of questions on what ignition coil is original. An often changed part and the original configurations are poorly documented in manuals.
One thing to know - the coil and bracket were shipped as an assembly to the assembly plant. What is a bit different is the last three digits of the assembly part # were the numbers embossed into the coil. The various brackets changed the angle /location of the coil for clearance.
Also the BR embossed on the coil went to B-R for 69 (the drawing change was dated 9/12/68)

What I know from the AIMs and broadcast sheets and car data.
67-69 L6: 1115208

67 V8: 1115267 used on many applications including LF7(base 327), L35, and L78.
Appears 270 and another coil (290??) were used on SS350 and L30 cars. It looks like the wiring harness and ignition resistance wire changed and so it may be an early vs late thing.

68 V8: 1115293 - all engines

69 V8: 1115293 - used on all engines except below
           1115298 - Z28
           1115270 - Z28 and L48 with cowl hood  (but not BB with cowl hood)
           1115210 - ZL1 TI units

After pulling this together, the biggest question is the coil for the 67 L30 and L48 cars.
And the differences between the brackets.

General Discussion / Driveshaft Research Report
« on: April 11, 2018, 04:01:26 PM »
Bryon's research report is finally published! As the editor, I take the blame for being the delaying factor.
He did a great job on pulling together all the resources to make it happen.

I started a new forum area: Promotional Events and Concept Cars
I put Scott's great posts in there. I have also collected pics of concept cars and would eventually like to have separate threads about each one.

Originality / Pulley diameters - anyone have these pulleys
« on: March 21, 2017, 08:40:03 PM »
Can you help with this pulley list?
Here is a list of first gen pulleys that we don't have the diameter (list is also on-site). The alternator pulleys don't always have numbers stamped on them so it would have to come from an known original part.
Diameter is simply the OD of the part. (Originally, they would have been measured over steel balls because you care where the belt sits, not the OD.)  Sorry about the column alignment, took work to even get it this nice!
SB is small block, BB is big block, DG is deep groove.

Originality / 69 Z Smog Pump Pulley Diameter

Anyone have an original smog pump pulley from a 69 Z that can measure the diameter of the pulley?  Pulley 3932458.

Restoration / New tie rod ends and idler arm
« on: February 24, 2017, 06:29:08 AM »
The SS396 (69) needs new tie rod ends and an idler arm.
I see many different options out there. This is a driver - noone will notice if they don't look exactly original, but I'd prefer they at least look close.
Recommendations on what/whose to get?

Here's the header stripe of an original paint 06C LOS 1968 car.

And here's the basic info on the stripes.
