Originality / PF25 or 29 oil filter for 68
« on: October 02, 2009, 05:06:43 PM »
Just saw this on ePay and was wondering if there's any truth to it?

According to my 1968 dated GM parts book,a PF29 or 6437946 is the first spin on

oil filter for all 68 models Impala Nova corvette chevelle camaro with V8 engines

327 396 427.  Pf 25 came out in 1969 so would NOT be correct.

Decoding/Numbers / 68 Universal Joint
« on: May 31, 2009, 04:33:43 PM »
Anyone know the original PN for the u-joint in a 68 with M20?  Also what it changed to through the years?
I had 7806140 in my notes but that joint is HUGE compared to what's on the car...could you let me what the heck that number is for too???

Originality / Tie Rods
« on: April 03, 2009, 01:16:14 AM »
Has anyone seen this before?  I was cleaning up my original tie rods to restore and noticed the center where the zerk fitting is was painted black!  I lightly cleaned the one on the right first & just started the one on the left (you can see where the paint is just starting to flake off) and figured I'd better go grab the camera!  And YES, it's paint not dried up caked on grease.  Is this how they were from the factory?  No other signs of black paint anywhere, only the orange inspection marks from forging.  All the NOS ones Iíve seen were plain steel.  Also, pretty sure the outer is a replacement from the numbers stamped in the center and the zerk fitting but could someone confirm that too?  Notice that center is black also but doesnít look like paint? 

General Discussion / Body by Fisher
« on: March 04, 2009, 12:19:34 AM »
Just cruzing around the internet and found this site all about Body by Fisher.  Thought it was pretty neat even though most of the stuff is from the 20's through 40's but did see a photo of a 68 Chevelle & one of a Corvair in the "Photo Album"  Check it out when you get some time, lot's of interesting info if your into the history side of things like me!

Enjoy :)

Originality / SPL Alternator mounting washer
« on: March 03, 2009, 10:14:45 PM »
Does anyone have a pic or know what's so special about the 2 washers that go on either side of the sleeve on the lower alternator mounting bracket for V8???  Referencing 68 AIM, page 79, view A, #11 - 3825452  Same for SB or BB.

I left them out and now trying to locate but I have no idea what I'm even looking for!!! :-[

Thanks guys!

Decoding/Numbers / Born on day?
« on: February 22, 2009, 08:24:34 PM »
So I know it's impossible to nail down the exact day on which our cars rolled off the assembly line, I've done the research, but would like to get some educated guesses.

Year: 1968
VIN: 320097
Plant/Body#: LOS 19362
Body Build: 12D
Body Scheduling: M093

I came up with 12/26/67 ???  What do you all think?  Did I miss a data point?

And if this is not the right place to post this, MODS please move!


Originality / Pitman Arms
« on: January 30, 2009, 07:28:56 PM »
Ok, I've seen David's site, searched everywhere, but still confused because I'm finding conflicting info or maybe I'm just not getting it so please forgive me!  Could someone please tell me exactly what pitman arms go to what application for 68 cars????  I'm specficly looking for right number for 68 PS, on a SS car (quick ratio, long arm I assume? - and if anyone has one for sale please let me know!!!)

Something formatted like this would be great if it's not to much to ask, and looking for the forging numbers:

68 PS standard 39xxxxx A or B
68 PS quick ratio (SS, RS) 39xxxxx A or B
68 PS special (Z28) 39xxxxx A or B

Keep seeing 3953219 listed for both PS & MS.  I know there ones with A & B after the number, is one for PS other for MS?
Also on Davids site, 3908391 is listed as 67 PS long fast ratio 5.8 but I see everywhere else it's a MS arm?
Last question, were these painted gloss black factory installed or bare cast iron?

HELP PLEASE!!!  Thanks guys!!! :) 

General Discussion / Camaro Performers Magazine Spread!
« on: January 29, 2009, 01:04:45 AM »

Restoration / Dipstick finish
« on: January 08, 2009, 12:24:43 AM »
Can anyone confirm what finish the top portion (where you put your finger) is supposed to have and is it the same for the collar that goes over the tube?  Thinking gray phosphate on both? 

Originality / Hood Levelers
« on: May 16, 2008, 03:04:29 PM »
Are they supposed to be Zinc or Phosphate?  Any markings/numbers on the rubber?

Originality / 68 Lower Ball Joints
« on: April 29, 2008, 05:14:48 PM »
Can someone tell me if these lower ball joints have the correct appearance for a 68 Camaro?  I think this is a second design as I think my originals had a flat flange that was the stop against the bottom of the control arm.  If these are not correct can someone post a pic of what the originals looked like?  Hate asking but I tossed my originals (like an ass) when I replaced them the first time with common Moog parts.  Also any info on how the "exact" repops really compare in appearance to what the car came with would be appreciated. 
Thanks Guys!

Site Comments/Discussion / For Sale Section

I'm sure it's come up in the past but just curious why we do not have a for sale section?

Decoding/Numbers / 5460346 Master Cylinder
« on: March 28, 2008, 06:01:08 PM »
Is there a date code on the 5460346 master cylinder?  All I can find is the D4 stamp.  If so where is it located?
I've seen the CRG report - Chassis - Suspension, Axle, Brakes, & Wheels but it didn't mention anything about date codes.
Thanks in advance!

Restoration / Reproduction Sill Plates with Rivets
« on: March 26, 2008, 07:14:27 PM »
Anyone got the repops with the rivets?  Who made them (MFG) and what do you think of them?  Post pics if you can.  I need to get a set and I know there's a few companies making them and want to get the "better" set.

« on: March 21, 2008, 03:09:10 AM »
Can anyone tell me if the intake manifold vacuum fitting was painted or bare steel on a 68 L35 engine?
