General Discussion / Re: Heater Box Ducting

I'm unclear on the non A/C ducting. Seems there is a drivers side duct that comes off the side of the box and another one that attaches to the lower end?? I am unclear if different parts were used for D55 console option? Was it consistent across 67-69 models?

Is there any research information on the heater ducting configurations on the first generation Camaros? Seems to be a very confusing topic as to what ducts are used on these vehicles??

Ever since this Camaro was found a couple years back in an Oklahoma lake, I have wondered if it was lost in 1970 to a jammed throttle from a faulty motor mount. Seems it could very easily have been caused by one. Maybe they will have a report on it one day......................

Thank you for clarifying this. Camaros seem to be an eternal search for more interesting discoveries. Glad we have archaeologists like you digging up and sharing this history!

In the 1968 factory AIM on the RPO Options Index sheet (A1) it shows a note about RPO D88 being removed on 2 28 1968. RPO D88 was apparently  Z-28 striping. This raises the question-was it possible to order optional striping on other Camaros?

Thank you for the clarification-these details get confusing and it is good to understand what's right!
As a follow up- did GM keep records of which vehicles CE engines, CC cases, or CT transmissions ended up in?

Usually is also stamped same on the gasket surface on the rear of the main case.

These kind of finds always beg the question-why was it taken off?!

I suspect there could be a large variety of these. Has anything been established on its purpose?

The Muncie factory has been scraped off for some time now. Looks like the birthplace of your Rockcrusher will soon be having baseballs crushed out of the park:

The Muncie transmissions have a number of unique stamp identifiers on the top rectangular boss at the rear of the top of the maincase. I have an understanding this is possibly an assemblers/inspectors stamp when originally put together?? Has anyone compiled a list of the different ones? I have seen a square with diagonal line and a diamond. I think there are many others as well. Is this stamp attributable to a single assembler/inspector?
There also seems to be a single letter stamped near the countershaft hole on the case fronts-any ideas on these?

The only thing that I can see that a spacer would do, is move the nut rearward more. Maybe this was done so there was more clearance from the shifters levers and the nut could be more easily accessed for tightening it??

I think I have an idea here- what if the shifter was hitting the front of the console shifter plate when going into reverse, first or third gear position? By adding a "Spacer" you could move the shifter handle back enough to clear the console plate.

On second thought, this would not be beneficial since both adjustment nuts are movable--

I'm starting to wonder if they were actually put on each of the rods and used to help avoid torque loading the rod when the rear nut was tightened to adjust the length. But the part is listed as a "Spacer" and only drawn up on one of the rods??? Seems to make no sense.

Does anyone have any ideas on what the assembly lines were up to with the shift rod "Spacer" additions on some of the shift rods? The Muncie 4 speed started putting a washer on the rear side of the swivel on the 3-4 rod and it looks like the Saginaw 4 speed may have had one added to the 1-2 rod. The 3 speed shows one on the 2-3 rod. It is interesting that they carried this over to 1969 production on the base 3 and 4 speed transmissions that had Muncie shifters also. There is no indication this was done on any 67 production.
What in the world were they up to with this???
