Antifreeze is good to -28 Fahrenheit. Not sure if it is essential in high end resto?

Truly "ahead of its time" lol
X2-Truly setting the “pace” !

I think on the Camaro pump the return hose pipe is indexed slightly away from the block. Big cars it is turned toward the block. I have a couple if you need more pics.
Not saying your isn't original but the return hose pipe should be indexed toward the block. Maybe your got bent? Mine is original and looks like the one in the fourth pic.

You contradict yourself? Can’t have it both ways?

Good-day Rob,
A great welcome back! Looks like you are proficient in taking good pictures. Keep 'em coming.

We may never know what exactly happened, but thanks to the tireless work of those who restored the site. Withdrawal was severe and rough!

Looks like a real solid body. Glad you joined. Drum brakes all the way around were standard on a 68 SS! So, don't jump to conclusions. Having said that, 68s are the hardest of the 3 years to document. Read up for yourself all the info on the site regarding your model.

Restoration / Re: Reverse Lockout

Lock-out parts are different between automatics & 4-speed.

Only Muncies used the two-tab swivel mount & upper lock rod 3945599. Small-blocks use lower lock rod 3955773; big-blocks 3955776. Saginaw 4-speed parts are not the same.

The '69 Camaro Assembly Instruction Manual is a great reference.

Thanks, so is it safe to say
that since my frame has only
two of the theee holes threaded , that the car was a factory muncie car?

That, or a fastener was left off at assembly ( which is very possible)? The subframe could have been replaced? So, an assumption can be made , but not a factual assertion. You would want to look for the hole in the firewall as a better clue of your car being muncie equipped.

Restoration / Re: Norwood stickers
« on: September 05, 2017, 12:39:05 PM »
I don't know of a list but another good marking to look for on Norwood cars is the X code in crayon on the sheet metal behind the rear seatback on the passenger side. I believe it should be there unless your car was built prior to using X-codes.  Pre-12B

Crayon "X" code marks were used on pre 12B cars, as well as post 12B. That is one possible way to ID a pre X code (on tag) car. So, saying a car built prior to using X codes (on tag) would not have a crayon marking of X code behind rear seat is mis information.

Engine gone sucks, but on the good side, being 1 owner, there is a explanation and logic why it is gone. Get every bit of paper, and transcripts of owner recollections. History and documents and 1 owner trump missing born with engine, IMO.

Oh, and to settle this debate, H.O. cars are the quickest....and we know what year has H.O.?
