Originality / Correct A6 casting number for early '67 Camaro?
« on: April 06, 2017, 05:03:29 AM »
Was there a specific casting mold number used on '67 A6 Camaro compressors (rear backing plate)?  Different casting molds for different GM models?  I have a 6555302 casting dated (H 16 6) (August) and a 6556406 casting dated (K 27 6) (November).  My build is 11B.  I know the 406 casting is beyond my build date, but here are two compressors within a couple months of each other, with different casting back plate numbers.  Also as a note, the front castings only have casting dates.  The AIM calls for a model number 6550133 (which was just a sticker on an A6).

There is ample documentation of engine block and head casting numbers, but I'm searching for correctness in compressors. Also, were the 1966 compressor castings used for early 1967 model vehicles, just as the 1966 engine castings were used for the early '67 models?

Originality / Compressor inspection stamp?
« on: February 21, 2017, 05:34:59 AM »
'Needing help in recreating the '67 A/C inspection stamp that was placed on the A6 compressors (Norwood built, 11B).  When cleaning years worth of repaints from the compressor, I uncovered a partial inspection stamp that I believe inspectors placed on the compressor when the A/C system was tested and certified.

The partial stamp is a yellow circle which is approximately 1-1/8" round, has "TEST" inside the circle, and has "CHEV" outside the circle at 6 o'clock.  I believe that the stamp was placed half on, and half off,  the compressor ID sticker.  Anyone have a photo or the actual wording inside the circle?

Thanks for your help!

Decoding/Numbers / 67 Dryer - Receiver?
« on: April 12, 2014, 01:10:28 AM »
Were there any date or model stampings on '67 dryer - receivers? 

I've been told that stampings on the bottom of the can are from rebuilt originals.  Does anyone know if this is true?  I've come across a '63 dryer that has stampings on the bottom, but is sworn to be original, new, and never installed.  Another knowledgeable individual has stated that he has had several new dryers through the years - all without stampings, dates, or codes.  I'm leaning towards this as being factual - no numbers, dates, or codes.

Several "old school" A/C shops that I have called don't have any knowledge on stampings., numbers, dates, or codes.   They'll rebuild an original, but have never paid any attention in regards to numbers.  Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Originality / Early '67 a/c compressor decal?
« on: March 19, 2014, 09:48:49 PM »
I've been looking for a correct Frigidaire A/C compressor decal for my '67 Camaro, built the 2nd week of November '66.  Everything I have found has been a black and silver decal with orange lettering (for the caution info at the bottom). These decals specify compressor 6551033 as per the AIM, but the code number is 041471 (April 14, 1967, day shift).  If one's Camaro was built before that, and one's looking for authenticity, this decal basically sucks.  Every article I have found states that the 67 A/C decals were orange (caution info).

Good news, maybe?  I found a Frigidaire black and silver decal with green lettered caution information.  It has the correct 6550133 model number, and a code of 102162 (October 21, 1966 night shift).  This works for my build date. 

I know early Camaro's had 1966 built parts.  I also know that 1966 Corvette compressors had green caution lettering but a different model number. I'm guessing 1966 GM compressors had the green caution information?  Does anyone have an early built true survivor that has the green lettered 1966 compressor decal on it?  Does anyone have knowledge on this small anal retentive matter?  Thanks!
