Thanks Kurt....

Last night, a friend of mine who is big into C3 Corvettes told me that the connection studs were breaking loose when tightening, thus the change from BR to B-R...I guess GM made a change to the casting mould?

Anyone hear different?

General Discussion / BR vs B-R on Delco Coils
« on: October 12, 2020, 10:35:36 PM »
Ok.... I have two Delco coils.... 270 BR and 270 B-R.  I read that the BR is for 68 and B-R is for 69.  The BR is the original coil to the car.....not B-R.  69 SS 350 with cowl induction O6A build.  Can anyone clarify why the disparity and whatís the difference between them?  I know that the BR means ballast resistor,  but why the difference?  Was there a manufacturing change, etc???

If you still want originality, repro spiral shocks are an option, however - the ride is not that good.
I use to have Monroe shocks, but KYBís are an excellent choice.
Thatís my two cents.

Welp, finally took off the plate and it was a GM unit for sure....

Twisted like a pretzel.  The middle of it is all caved in and the shock mount is moved upwards.
Never paid attention to it when I installed it 30 years ago....

Iíll post a picture of it soon.

That looks better than what I have.....
I just ordered a new shock plate from HBC......USA made. Supposed to cure that problem.
We'll see....

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm not sure if the plates I have are GM or not........I'm thinking not since I see the pic you provided.  My originals were really rusty / pitted, and I bought the "GM" set I have installed at Carlisle...I guess the seller bullcrapped me.....oh well...buyer beware I guess.  Typical Carlisle experience.

Thanks for all your help Joe.......I appreciate it!!
Mike

This is what I'm talking about.  Doesn't look right to me.

Ahhhhhhhhh!! 

Now I see!!!

Does the left Shock mount "tang" look different that the right?  Is it more of a 90 degree from the top mounting surface?  Doesn't look like it in your picture.

Mine is really at a different angle than the shock bottom mounting donut.  It deforms the rubber donut when everything is tightened.

Just doesn't look right.  Beginning to wonder if all left side plates are made this way from GM.

Thanks Joe!!
