Originality / 1969 Z/28 oil pressure line
« on: August 16, 2019, 04:29:14 PM »
Does a 69 Z/28 with a console and gauges also get an idiot light  sending unit along with the plastic line? There is a unit on Ebay showing a copper/brass nipple with a brass block with the oil line fitting and oil sending unit as an assembly. The person said he removed it from a 69 Z/28 with console gauges where the idiot lights in dash and console gauges both worked.

Could this be something GM offered as over the counter parts to people who wanted to add a console to their camaro?

thanks for the help.


Originality / 1969 Z/28 manual steering rag joint
« on: January 20, 2019, 06:16:52 PM »
Do all the assembly line "manual" rag joints (#7806391) come with the ground strap? I have the original one on my 69 Z that needs to be replaced. I see some NOS ones with and some without the ground strap for sale. My Z/28 is an 11D of 68 car if that matters.

Thanks,  Sam

Other than the VE3 load rest is any other part of the jack painted blue?  Thanks!

Originality / original headers
« on: January 18, 2011, 05:06:02 PM »
did any of the original GM headers for the  Z/28 come with 3 bolt flanges or did both manufactures supply 4 bolt flanges?  Thanks, Sam

Originality / Lug nuts
« on: January 12, 2010, 12:32:35 AM »
What were the lug nut stampings for a 69 camaro, nova, chevelle etc. Did most have the RBW or waffle stampings on the top? Also did all the 69 camaros have the static suppressors/metalcoils in the grease cap hub or was that only for AM radios or deluxe interior cars?  Thanks,  Sam

Does anybody have a picture of an original (assembly line) gas cap for a 69 Z/28, nova etc.?  Thanks,  Sam

Originality / valve cover grommets 350 and 302 motors
« on: October 15, 2009, 06:32:05 PM »
Is the rubber gromet on the drivers side (PCV valve) angle cut or round like the other side? Also assembly line PCV valve, does it have AC Spark Plug on it or just something like AC 105? The PCV valve also had a D underneath on the plunger that moves. Thanks,  Sam

Anybody attend VF in Chicago this past weekend? What a great 1969 Z/28 display they had! Almost all colors were represented. ;D

Decoding/Numbers / 1969 Z/28 5 leaf rear springs
« on: September 20, 2008, 04:28:07 PM »
If a 69 Z/28 came with the optional 5 leaf rear springs would they still have the Z/28 yellow (BM) code tag or would they have the BB 5 leaf code tag which I believe is a yellow (BK) code tag?  Thanks,  Sam

Originality / 1969 Z/28 heater hose bracket
« on: August 18, 2008, 02:27:49 AM »
Do all the 69 Z/'s have the bracket that bolts to the top of the alternator for the 2 heater hoses? I saw 2 survivor 69 Z/s that did not have them and my 1969 SS nova small block survivor does not either. I don't think the brackets were just left off or missing because the hole in the alternator bracket was not cut by the screw/bolt threads.  Thanks,  Sam

Decoding/Numbers / 1073 crank shaft
« on: August 04, 2008, 06:12:08 PM »
Was that the number of the large journal crank in the early 1968 Z/28's?  Thanks, Sam

Restoration / 69 Z/28 distributor
« on: March 03, 2007, 01:33:30 AM »
CHP did a perfecto job on my Z/28  distributor. Got it back in the same week I sent it. Jerry's service is almost as fast as that little 302 E/Stocker he runs in the summertime.  8) Thanks  Jerry.  Sam

Originality / 1969 camaro alternator harness support
« on: February 19, 2007, 07:39:45 PM »
Is the little plastic harness support that pushes into the bottom of the alternator bracket originally white or black from the factory. The little support that is taped to the wiring harness.  Thanks!  Sam

Originality / 1969 Z/28 springs
« on: December 28, 2006, 05:39:17 PM »
My car has 5 leafs in the rear. The shock plates,shackles and bushings look to be all original. As I was cleaning the springs, toward the front on the top long spring there was a stenciled number in white. Can't make out the number but the last digit looks like it is O. Any way I can tell if these springs are original equipment or not?  Thanks,  Sam
