Originality / Original 69 L34/L35 Oil Pressure Fitting
« on: August 22, 2017, 04:13:10 PM »
I'd like to hear from guys that have original, born with L34 (350hp) and/or L35(325hp) 69 SS396 Camaros with U17 console gauges. 1969 only as I believe this is a 69 only set up.
I'm going to post up the info I've confirmed, but I'd like to see pictures of original fittings on the block above the oil filter. Please, no L78 pics. They're different.

AIM U17 A3 parts 5 (444052) & 6 (444030)

The first picture is of what I believe originals look like. That's what I'm trying to get confirmation on because there is some conflicting info out there.




This picture is of an L78 fitting that I see all the time and is often confused for what I'm looking for.



Finally, this last one I've seen called a 69 L34/L35 oil fitting, but I don't think it is. HBC claims it's the replacement for 444052.

Originality / Big block air cleaner
« on: August 19, 2017, 09:41:57 PM »
Now that all the old photobucket pics are gone, could you guys help me ID this air cleaner?
I just bought it. Any thoughts about it? It's supposed to be original. I believe it is. Anything amiss? I bought it to replace the stolen one off my 69 back in the 80s.

Thanks.

General Discussion / BB 69 396 L34 Carb 7029215
« on: May 01, 2017, 03:13:14 PM »
What do you guys have to say about this carb? There doesn't seem to be a date stamp on it which would lead me to believe it's an early 69 version, but there is also no date on the base plate. That could have been replaced, but I thought the early ones had the part number more centered (7029215). This one is stamped like it was going to get a date stamp, but it was missed or forgotten. Is that possible? Ever heard of it?
My understanding is the "R" stamp in red meant it was an assembly line piece. It looks pretty original to me, but I'm no expert. What do you think about it's value?

Thanks for any comments.

Decoding/Numbers / 7029215 date decode
« on: April 09, 2017, 04:42:44 AM »
Can anyone decode this date for me? It's on the base plate of a 69 Rochester qjet 7029215.

Thanks.

General Discussion / Dave's X77 Z28
« on: February 28, 2017, 04:44:25 PM »
It *might* be worth close to that much (in terms of increased value to his car) to the person who owns '69 Z28  (VIN 124379N680067) which doesn't have it's original motor - assuming this one IS the correct motor...

... but to anyone else?  NO WAY...  I wouldn't give $800 for it.

PS.  I'd guess that the original cars that the great majority of these 'orphan' engines came in... are mostly crushed down to scrap metal by now.
Hey Gary, Antique comment I know, but... I'm sure you're right for a majority of orphans, but ours is just one example of a 69 Z28 without it's original block. There are a ton still out there and I'd say there's a pretty good chance that there are quite a few original blocks just waiting to match up.
I'm still looking for our Z28 block, 597037. I'd love to have it obviously, but if I found it for $8k he could keep looking for another sucker...

Originality / D55 Console with U17 Gauge Package (pic heavy)
« on: January 11, 2017, 09:07:39 PM »
I know questions come up pretty often about this or that with regards to the center console and U17 cluster. I was just organizing some of my pictures and thought how handy a thread detailing them could be. The pictures I'm posting are of my all OE born with set up from my 69 SS396. Obviously these are in all stages from never touched to when I cleaned them up.
And for the wise guys… Yes, they work perfectly now that they’re back in my car.
For anyone that needs it, here you go:

General Discussion / "Buck built" Assembly line front end install
« on: November 26, 2016, 04:03:58 PM »
When the buck built front end was installed on the assembly line, did it include the inner fenders or were they already installed?

Originality / Big Block 69 original cable routing
« on: May 25, 2016, 06:59:01 PM »
Is this the correct routing of the positive battery cable? The AIM says it should go behind the dip stick, but doesn't mention the starter brace. If you angle the terminal like I have it, which is like the AIM, the angle is too tight if I run it behind the brace.
Also, the clips aren't addressed in the AIM because they were on the block already when it got to Norwood. Do I have them on the correct oil pan bolts? It looks like the pic in the AIM shows the front one, but not the rear.

Originality / AC GF432 fuel filter
« on: May 25, 2016, 04:56:10 PM »
I've been seeing some guys pay some crazy prices on NOS fuel filters. HBC wants $150. I found a site selling NOS for $59.99 +$5 shipping. That's pretty close to what they're getting for current a/m ones.
I figured with all the work I've been doing to mine, she deserves a new filter finally. Seeing how the prices will probably only go up in the future, I'm going to throw a hidden in-line filter somewhere before it.

Maintenance / Original hinges - rebuild (pic heavy)
« on: April 07, 2016, 01:21:01 PM »
One of the things I've been dreading is rebuilding the hinges on my car so I can final set my door gaps. That's one of those original things that I like to see stay original because I'll be looking at them every time I open the door. Here's what I did to keep them looking as original as possible. First I’ll show the pics of the passenger side breakdown. I couldn’t believe the factory used plastic bushings on the top hinge… If anyone would like to see another angle shot or something specific, let me know. I’m not posting all the pics I took.
Basically what I did was grind off just enough of the pin that is holding it in place to be able to drive it out. Luckily my pins and the roller were still like new. Just the bushings were getting bad. That’s why I was able to re-use them. From the top, you’ll never be able to tell I rebuilt them. Once I tack them from the bottom with my mig and dress the weld, you’ll be hard pressed to tell from the bottom too.

Top:
















Plastic bushing…







Bottom:









Here you can see the different bushing sizes on the bottom hinge. You’ll have one bushing in your rebuild kit that will be a little different. It’s pretty obvious.

Restoration / Color ID help needed
« on: March 30, 2016, 05:00:24 PM »
What color would you say my trunk spatter paint is? Gray/White or Black/Aqua. I don't know how subtle the differences are.
I think I'm going to have to go for the GM resto rattle can unless there is a reasonable alternative now. I don't have a Schutz gun and I don't want to spend $100s to have it done. Thanks.

General Discussion / HBC warning. Not Made in the USA
« on: March 30, 2016, 01:00:33 PM »
Normally I don't say much about vendors unless they go above and beyond. HBC advertises "Made in the USA" on their premium gas tank EGP-1003. I called and they said it was the Spectra tank I was looking for. It was a pretty good sale, so I drove up to Shelbyville to pick it up. I could have gotten it from Rock Auto for a couple dollars less, but I like to shop the brick and mortar when I can. Normally they ask $152.26 for the $100 tank. It was on sale for 9% off, so $138.75. Then they have their 20% off sale right now. $111.00. When I get there, Jim tries to screw me out of the sale price and tells me it's still a great deal because it's Made in the USA. He was trying to charge me 20% off the full price saying normally it isn't a discount item. Luckily I put a bunch of things in my cart on line as a shopping list and brought the print out with me. He didn't care. Luckily someone else rang it up and I was able to argue it and got it for $111.00. I should have left it, but it was a long drive.
To top it all off, I got it home and even though all the HBC stickers on the box say "Made in the USA", it says, "Made in Canada" inside all over the tank. No disrespect to Canada here, but when I am told it is Made in the USA, it had damn well better be. No response to my email questioning this... Still advertised on the website with USA made.

General Discussion / ET wheels on 69
« on: March 25, 2016, 01:33:56 AM »
I'm getting ready to clean up my ET IV wheels. I've always had plastic push in from the front style center caps. I wanted to go with more secure and metal push in from the rear type, so I picked up some original caps. They're 3.22" like they're supposed to be, but they seem to be a pretty tight fit. Anyone else running them that can tell me about their caps and how they fit? Here is one of mine.

Thanks.
