1968 - Orphans / Re: 18N402360 Muncie

Yep. The car's still out there (at least it was back in 2001 when we entered it in the database), and the owner is a member of the Team Camaro site. I've sent him an email and a Team Camaro IM, so if he still has the car, hopefully he chimes in.

General Discussion / Re: Broadcast sheet/Build Sheet Type setting process

I have a Broadcast sheet that is blank, but need someone to enter info on sheet with correct type set and correct size.

Ain't gonna happen Don. I don't know exactly what system GM used at the time (John might know), but you'd have to find someone running something like the old 1960's IBM 1401 mainframe (specifically programmed for broadcast sheets), and print to something like an IBM 1403 line printer to be able to do this. If you tried it with just a regular laser printer, the fonts and spacing would be all wrong. Not only that, but I haven't seen a punch card for AGES!

You need to post the body number. You can't do a search on pictures.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Power steering box date code help
« on: November 03, 2018, 08:34:40 PM »
8 is the year (1958, 1968, 1978, etc...), BL is unknown (I've never seen one with those letters), and 254 is the 254th day of the year (Tuesday, September 10th, 1968). Of course, this is assuming the box was built in 1968. If it was built in 1978, then it would be Monday, September 11th, 1978.

Yes, 11 41 means 3.73 ratio and 12 67 means December, 1967.

First, welcome to the site. Second, what's your name (we like names here). Third, read THIS to get a start on what your car would have come with.

« on: October 26, 2018, 09:41:56 PM »
We don't know the EXACT date, but it was at the same time the 396 came out, which was in mid to late December, 1966.

Originality / Re: CRG Report on Fan Blades question

I am so curious why the 5-blade fan layout looks the way it does. Logic would make me think the blades should be evenly spaced around the hub.

Nope. And not just the 5 blade fan. This was done on purpose to keep the noise from the fan as quite as possible. They would make an AWFUL racket if they were concentric.

So you don't have to search

The early "SS-350" emblems were changed to "SS" upon the introduction of the SS-396. The distinction between the two models was made via the engine size emblem and the blacked-out tailpan applied to the SS-396 cars.

Rob, bolts, nuts, washers, and all fasteners in general were supplied by several vendors and all of the same size were mixed in together in the same bin. There's not "A" correct bolt for a given application because the line worker just grabbed whatever was in the bin and used it. You'll see all kinds of markings on bolts from nothing at all, to letters, to symbols.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: What is this engine code ?
« on: October 25, 2018, 01:41:35 PM »
I think they changed it because the 396 had a bore of 4.094, which was kind of a strange bore. The 402 bore was 4.125, which was more in line with their tooling.
