Originality / Re: 1969 clock usage
« on: November 08, 2017, 07:17:12 PM »
If Danny's freaking out because the picture of the car itself is a Z28 (and as we all know, you couldn't get an automatic in a Z28), it's because magazines typically use several different cars for their layouts. The pictures on that page are of at least two different cars, and maybe even three. And most likely the pictures were furnished by the Chevrolet publicity department.

1969 - Orphans / Re: 9N5672x7 - Muncie Transmission Case
« on: November 08, 2017, 06:18:30 PM »
Boy, that's a tough one. It's not a 0 because it's not high enough. It's not a 2 because the leg at the bottom isn't flat. It's not a 3 or a 5 because it's closed in on the left. I don't think it's a 6 either (compared to the other 6). It MIGHT be an 8??? If it is, it's either 124379N567287  or 124679N567287

As an aside, there's a TON of information in THIS THREAD regarding brands of extinguishers and how they stack up, but it's well worth reading.

OK thanks - other than that, are they wider than the Camaro?

No, they interchange just fine as long as you get the same year.

Yes, they're different. The Firechicken has a groove in it (see below) and the Camaro doesn't.

Yes 69,

So is it correct if you have console with gauges you should
 have a clock?

If it came from the factory with U17 then yes.

It also depends on what year you're referring to. The above is correct, but only for 1969.

If it has a solid lifter cam, someone's changed it or the documentation isn't correct (which isn't unusual!!). But double hump heads aren't necessarily high performance 2.02 applications. They also came in a 1.94 configuration that was used in the mid range HP engines.

If they have GM for a logo, then they're GM mats. Not necessarily a Chevrolet application, but who knows!!

Rick, Chevrolet floor mats (even the dealer installed accessory mats) always had the Chevrolet "Bow-Tie" emblem in them and I don't see that in yours, so they're most likely aftermarket. I DO see some kind of logo at the top of the front mats, but it doesn't appears to be the bow-tie.

Yes, more information about XXX coded blocks have been found since then. In this case, XXB is a "Universal engine assembly" (P/N 3912353), which is a 1964 though 1967 327 (exc special high performance). This means it's a low to mid HP engine assembly.

General Discussion / Kidde fire extinguisher recall
« on: November 02, 2017, 05:19:28 PM »
As most of us have at least one fire extinguisher in our classic cars (and homes), Kidde has just announced a recall on a TON of their plastic handle and push button extinguishers sold between January 1st, 1973 and August 15th, 2017.

You can read more about it HERE and HERE.

CHECK YOUR MODEL NUMBERS AND MANUFACTURE DATES!!!

General Discussion / Re: 1969 Z28 Oil Question
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:11:13 PM »
The Z28 302 oil pan holds 4 quarts (5 with filter), so if you're using the tall 2 quart oil filter, you'll need to add another 2 quarts to the system for a total of (plus or minus) 6 quarts.

Guys! Read the link I posted above. It has EVERYTHING you'd ever want to know about smog on these cars. Kurt spent a LOT of time compiling this information. Make use of it!!!

Automatic  350 car would not have smog.

ALL 1969 Camaros had smog equipment. It just depends on the engine/transmission combination as to what KIND of smog setup they had. Either AIR or CCS as shown in the link I posted above.
