Not sure exactly what you are looking for because there are a lot of part numbers in the assembly manual. 

What specific numbers are you looking for?  Most of us can help you figure it out.

I am not convinced that the stampings are original.

Over a year ago now we reset every password on the entire AutoGuide system and sent email notifications to the emails on file for all accounts. What we have found that many Team Camaro, Team Chevelle, Team Nova members had changed their email accounts and providers over the years but never updated their accounts to reflect those changes, and therefore could not use the temp password to login and set a strong password.

Really not a big deal to reconnect your account. Send me a PM here with your TC screen name, birth date or old email used and your current email account. I will confirm your account details change the email on file for that account, send a password to it and done.


Thanks Brian!

Neat video.  At 2:44 those 348/409's in the back row all appear to have something written on the passenger side cylinder heads.  Very clearly appears to be on top of the paint too.  Pretty interesting.  Thanks Mike.

Probably noting the difference between the big valve heads and the small valve heads.

Would be nice to know what year it is, because practices don't always stay the same.  That is 1965 or earlier if they are regular 409s, unless they are some special warranty engines.  Some 348s were built around or later than 1965.  Some were used for farm or industrial use too.

It probably wouldnít be cost effective to repair it, unless itís for your car.  If someone canít repair it on their own, it will probably cost $200 or more for a top notch repair. Of course much less if you can do it yourself.

Bill, any updates?  I agree with Kurt and if you try to do what Danny did, it wouldn't really hurt anything.

Any possibility of dealers replacing stolen wheels with service replacements on new cars? Or service departments "borrowing" a wheel and replacing with a service wheel?

Absolutely. Hi-Perf cars were regular targets for thieves back in the day. There was an interview in one of the mags with a guy that worked at Gibb Chev; the ZL1s had carbs stolen right on the lot. A dealer in Detroit had 5 ZL1 Camaros stolen one evening.

Dealers regularly swapped wheels around. Someone posted paperwork from their Z/28 sometime back. Very likely they swapped wheels between two cars in stock.
Your comment Bill brought back memories from our Railroad Yard back in the day as cars came in on railroad cars and lots of stuff was stolen especially batteries.

When I was young (almost 50 yrs ago?).. :)    I heard stories about thieves hopping the trains carrying new cars, and dropping out Muncies.. they would then push them off the train when the train slowed and afterwards go back and pick up the transmissions...  I wonder how many Camaros ended up with the WRONG transmissions at initial sale time due to crap like this??

Possible. I have never heard of that. Might cause damage dropping a trans off a train.

Carbs, distributors, alternators, wheels would have probably be more likely targets.

Bottom line:   If you are going to drive your collector car (or any car) with OLD tires at highway speeds..   it's much better to be SAFE than be SORRY!  :)

Excellent advice. 

As you say, my theory also, anything is possible.
Here I have two shafts from'67 L6/PG/2.73, and one from '68 V8/PG/3.08 - don't know the application of those shown - over 40 thing
Shafts measured from shaft yoke to shaft yoke, overall
Short one is 50 inches overall by 2 3/4 inch diameter
Long one is 51 3/8 inches by 2 inch diameter
Critical speed is dependent upon OD, wall thickness, material, and length.
Just my theory.

49.96 is the length for most 67 and 68 Driveshafts. The other one is too long for any stock 67-69 Camaro.

Are you sure on your tube diameters or are you measuring the yoke?

Thanks Chris, for Z28 I believe should be orange and white stripes. Faded orange can look like yellow.

Can you get a measurement center of u joint to center of u joint?  Thanks!
