...But it came with spoilers, ZL2 hood and gauges! Didn't all Camaros come that way?? (joke) At least they take A LOT of pictures, and that is good.

I canít think of a more worthy candidate. The guy is super knowledgeable about a variety of cars, and just a plain nice friendly, helpful fella. I have benefitted from his thoughtful generosity. Best of luck Phillip.

That 1 is clearly a 4, imo.

I may be naive, but I donít think that there is a significant demand for this particular number (OPís) to warrant ďrestampsĒ? The restamp business is generally relegated to high demand, high $$ ($800-$1.5k) pieces. I wonít comment on reasons these restamps exist. Parts in the $50-$100 range (OPís part in question) are generally not profitable enough to justify the effort to restamp.

This is a great opportunity to again thank Phillip for the opportunity to attend last yearís fall event. It was a wonderful, glorious car filled day! So good, that I looked forward to attending again this year. Unfortunately, I had already booked a flight to visit Mom at this same time. So, maybe next year? Weather was perfect, Iíll add. Thank you Phillip and CRG.

General Discussion / Re: 12 Bolt Axle Asm Weight
« on: August 23, 2018, 10:20:55 AM »
One other way to get the weight would be to get the vehicle (the one the guy will use to haul the axle to the shipper) weight without this axle in the bed. This is known as the Tare or Unladen weight. Vehicle scales can be found at salvage yards, recycling stations and grain handling businesses. After Tare weight is established, owner can go back to where axle is located, load into the same vehicle, then go over the same scale and establish the Gross weight. Take the gross weight, subtract the Tare weight and you will have the axle weight.

Welcome to CRG. As long as the shop is taking pictures, have them take pictures of the trim tag and a couple of the firewall that show the complete area, then a pic of the fuel line. Thanks. The casting number will most likely be found on the back of the block on the opposite ( right) side than the ...512 number you provided. There is a pad on the rt front with possible numbers.

Originality / Re: Witteck Tower Hose Clamps
« on: August 15, 2018, 05:17:24 PM »
Bentley...where are you getting the clamps from? I bought dated clamps (repro) and 3 out of 4 failed. Just curious who you are getting them from.

I find them in rooting through old timers junk drawers and buying box lots. Donít do the junk yard because not too many that would even have cars over 10 years old and if they do, the cars are picked over like a monkey picking fleas off another. Repop? I would have to be hard up to use repop anything. I try to use only GM.
There is a guy in Oklahoma that has tons and tons of real witteck nos clamps. I have used him, as well. Ask Tim, (ZLP), got him a set from that guy. I think he liked them.

That was fast Bert! I mean, Ed. Would these, in your humble opinion, be acceptable correct for my 12B (69 model year) car?

Originality / Witteck Tower Hose Clamps
« on: August 15, 2018, 03:03:14 PM »
Did a search, came up empty.
I am trying to figure out hose clamp dates. Specifically, would a clamp with this date, 3-68, indicate that it is 3 rd quarter of 68 and that would be correct for the early 69 model year? Or, does the 68 mean it was the 3 rd quarter of the 68 model year?
There are some parts on a GM car dated starting with the model year and then, some parts dated by the quarter of the year, IE: plug wires.

Get an old Holley list-6210. Rebuild, install, go, hang on! I would prefer to repair the Rochester, if it were my car? The Rochester carb is very good and up to even high performance & racing tasks.

... The "C" has been peened over, guessing at the factory...
I went through my axle pics. There are several CBU axles with the C wiped out. Several are also untouched. I don't see the C removed on any other ratio.
I won't even hypothesize on this one......

Rereading my own post I felt I was vague in saying, ďdone at the factory.Ē. The point I was trying to convey is that I have only known Camaro housings that had the ďCĒ peened. I am under the belief that it was done at Norwood Assembly , as a Supervisor directive, and not done on axles dated the same at, say, the Nova Assembly line. I have been under the opinion that this peened ďCĒ is a confirmation that the housing came out of a Camaro. Not to hijack this threadís original topic, but it would be interesting to research this aspect of these C-less housings in the future. Further, Kurtís observance of only the BU housings being affected, which I had not heard previously, is intriguing data to research, as well.
