It should also probably be documented if the housing is an 860 or later 341 housing

What is on your car currently? They are probably the original bolts.

I've only ever seen a very small light blue dot and or dab at the very top (Inspection Mark)

For reference, here's a set of 69 flat/coupe baffles on eBay right now


Those were mine and they have been sold. I do have two more sets. I also sold a set of 67 / 68 a couple of months back on Ebay.

I believe it was casted in May, so your car's build date is probably July.

1969 - Orphans / Late 1969 DZ Short Block V0929DZ (Sept 29, 1969)

Trying to reunite this original short block with the car. The block still retains the original standard piston and there is no ridge, so it can possibly remain standard bore.
The VIN is present but hard to read 19N7005?

Paul, maybe I can answer without posting my Z28 Trim Tag.....To many counterfeiters and I don't need another 67 Z with a dup of my trim tag. Dave

Am I missing something,  I have a 69 hardtop without any seat belt mounts in the rear. It normally wouldn't be a problem but I have 6yo that needs a car seat  and moms not cool with just hanging on tight .

I have a 67 Camaro and it also came without rear belts. However, the holes are there and are seal with factory chalk. Dave

"For a 68, that's in conflict with other cars have. They used 293's"

My survivor 68 Z28 has a 298 coil, which is also used on 69 Z28 with the flat hood.

Originality / Re: Brake & Gas Liine Clip 3881339
« on: May 14, 2019, 04:21:12 PM »
Went through our clips and found one that you could clearly see was phosphate.
Were there differences depending on where they were used, i.e. gas vs. brake?

I also started researching this today for I'm getting original clips ready for my 67 and found that they are either phosphate or an olive green.  I found both finished and I'm wondering if one is for the fuel and one is for the brake even though they are the same clip. Any help would be appreciated. Thanxs Dave

Restoration / Re: Z/28 Alternator Brace, the black one
« on: March 23, 2019, 10:04:49 PM »
Well, my aftermarket reproduction brace appears to be no where near accurate.  Not enough arch so it gets into the fan blades.  Who makes one that is correct?


The problem appears to be the black bracket. It arches wrong and doesn't follow the contour and or bend of the orange bracket. At the very end of the both brackets to the right of the alt bolt the brackets should be uniform. Yours don't line up even.

Here is a picture of Chick's 68 Z28 as a reference. Maybe he can provide a better detailed picture.

Just an FYI also the alternator is incorrect and appears to be a later one with the finned or ribbed back, which has the built in regulator.

I would look for another original set if it were me.
