Thank you so much for posting a pic of my car on the CRG home page!  I just got back in town tonight and noticed it and it put me the best mood. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I know that the 08B date was skipped and was wondering if there are any 08A dates on cowl tag for 1969 extended production camaros? Thanks

Wondering if there are any other 69 Z orange on orange houndstooth with black top cars out there?   

Vin Sequential number for my car is  N672077.   I see in Jerry's book August cars start with N670000 end with N678000.   Anyone else have a early August build Z?

General Discussion / 1969 302 DZ valve adjustment question.
« on: January 06, 2009, 03:11:25 AM »
When using the 30 30 cam cold and not running valve adjustment for the 302 z motor what would be the valve lash setting for each cylinder when  both intake and exhaust valves for that piston are fully closed?      The procedure listed on the site has you turning the crank 90 degree increments and jumping around and setting them at .026

Does the 1969 302DZ motor have the same fire order as other 350 and small blocks?? 

General Discussion / 1969 DZ 302 lifter/oil dripper question
« on: December 18, 2008, 02:47:24 AM »
I have my 302 DZ motor witch has 1970 model valve covers with the oil drippers, I know 1969 covers did not have them.   I noticed a loud valve on the right side and did the 30 30 cold adjustment, sounded fine but only for about 20 miles then noise again. I noticed the one valve had lossened up alittle again so I changed out the lock nut.    Question:  could the lifter be  just touching the dripper??   and do the 1970 valve covers work fine and even better because of better lubrication??  Thanks. I will run the car tomarrow and see if problem is cured.                 Also I did check to see if the stud backed out and it did not.     The motor has afew hundred miles on it.                 

General Discussion / 1969 Z28 standard front brake calipers

Were the standard 1969 Z28 front calipers single piston type?   And did the JL8 4 wheel disc option only give you front and rear twin piston "corvette like" calipers. Thanks

General Discussion / 1969 Z hood stampings/dates markings locations
« on: October 22, 2008, 10:49:38 AM »
looking to see if my cowl hood is original can anyone tell me where  I can find the dates and numbers please and hoe to decode.

I  was reading an older post a few weeks ago on how to use a bright colored crayon  and  rub the area by the oil filter with it then scrub lightly and remove the excess crayon to reveal the partial vin.  It worked great!    I cleaned the area with acetone first a few times to remove all paint and was still not able to see anything. Then I tried this method.  The first attemp with the crayon exposed a N and a 2.  Then I worked the crayon on the area agiain where I saw the numbers and put it on very heavy then took my time with a new tooth brush and was able to make out 1 9 N and 5 out of the 6 numbers of the vin sequential number.  The motor is in the car and I was told it would be impossible to see the numbers with out the motor out of the car. i would recommend this method to anyone who has not been able to read there partial vin on late 1969 cars. 

Also this helps prove that a March 29th build DZ 302 can be original to a early August build car.  My car is a 08C car and could have been built during the second or third week since 08B was skipped.   I also talked witha few people who suggested that because productionwas not extended yet dealers were not getting many orders for Z28's with expectation of thge new 1970 Z28.

General Discussion / 1969 Z28 08C build question.
« on: September 14, 2008, 01:21:38 AM »
As new to the site I have been reading and learning more and more.  I read a response to a question last year by Mark,  that another person post with a 08C 69 Z28 build car. He also has many parts for his car that is dated May and June for his 08C build.  I guess it does make sense that production was to end so dealers were not taking as many orders so build numbers were down??? I know that 70 camaros were delayed and that whole story.  So my 08C build car,  which was delivered to the original owner around  August 20th has a May 29th build motor with casting dates 26, 27th of heads, etc.       Does anyone else have a 08A   or 08C  build 69 camaro Z28 or other car with early parts???             I know that 08B did not exist so my car was a early August build to be sold onthe 20th.    I love the site and the information seams endless.  Thanks.

Decoding/Numbers / Decode my rear axle please?
« on: September 09, 2008, 06:14:28 PM »
PC 1129 G                      K216 casting date,   it is a 12 bolt axle, at first I thought it was a K218, but I was told on the site the 8 must be a 6.    The axle is in my 69 Z28 thanks.

Decoding/Numbers / cowl tag buid date question.
« on: September 08, 2008, 05:46:12 PM »
My car has a 08C build date on the cowl tag. I was informed on this site that 08B week was skipped.  So does that mean that my 08C car body build started in the second week and not the 3rd???  Did the plant just not produce car bodies during the second week?? Talked with  the original owner yesterday and he remembers buying the ca rin the middle or toward the end of the month of August.  I know the builds dates on the cowls are not exact to the cars build.  Any thoughts just trying to document the cars history as accurate as possible.

My engines build date is May 29th, the blocks casting date is May 25th, the heads are cast May 26th. The stamp on the front machine pad looks legit V0529 DZ and all things fit the puzzle for the motor,  but my cars build date on the cowl tag is 08C, August 3rd week correct. The question is could it be possible that 60 to 80 day spread between engine build and cars build???  I have spoken to all previous owners and all state that the motor is the original one and forget about trying to read the numbers on that rough pad by the oil filter while the engine is still in the car! I have read enough questions and threads on that topic in this CRG forums.   So can it be?? Is 60 days too long?? How long did it take to get a finished motor from Flint to get to Norwood.  I am very sure my car is a real Z28 hugger orange on hugger orange houndstooth, but is the engine the original DZ motor?? Thanks for the help.       PS I have learned so much from this Forum it is sick and I appreciate all the information.

My  Z28 has a 2nd week of August build so could this be the cars original axle?? How close do the casting dates run to the cars build on rear ends???
