As for rubber vs plastic, I would say a flexible plastic.

Yes, that sounds about right. The same kind of flexible plastic used in a lot of the interior parts. Like the grab handle for instance.

Do you have a group # for 4591473?

Quote
The group number is 16.850

It also depends on which P&A you're looking at. The September, 1968 P&A 34 is Group 15.300.

I also believe originals are kind of a rubberized plastic. Not the hard plastic of the repops, but not a full rubber either. Kind of an in-between.

NOW, what is the acceptable time date spread?

Up to several weeks, but usually they were only a few days to a week or so before the engine assembly date.

Yes, it would have the 326 pump. The 1969 model year went to the "long" pump, so all 68 302's would have used the 326.

My car's a 68 (Los Angeles 05D). That would be the 21st week in 1968.

Looks like J 7 6 to me. Can you post a picture of the spring perch?

Thanks for the information Fred. While the CRG doesn't normally allow for sale and wanted ads, since your post is a "service" and something a lot of folks are looking for, we'll keep this one around. However, I've removed your other two posts since they're duplicates.

25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Bad neutral switch ?? on: May 24, 2014, 03:53:39 PM
The jumper wire you have makes the circuit "closed" at all times, therefore bypassing the neutral safety switch. This allows the car to start no matter what gear the car is in. NOT a good idea, but lots of people do it because they don't want to mess with a possible bad neutral safety switch.

Your switch is out of the picture at this point so you'll have to look elsewhere. Sounds like a loose wire somewhere.

Ed

The two purple wires go to the neutral safety switch and "close" the circuit when you're in park or neutral (auto) or have the clutch depressed (manual) allowing the car to start. Someone has bypassed it so the circuit is ALWAYS "closed"!. In this case your car "should" be able to start in any gear setting.

Yes, just because the car was ordered and shipped to one dealer, doesn't necessarily mean it was PURCHASED at that dealership. It didn't happen a lot back then, but dealer trades did happen once in awhile.

ALL cars were special ordered, but not in the way you might think. Chevrolet didn't build cars and then just ship them helter skelter hoping they would sell. Cars were ordered by dealers. Some for "stock" (the ones you found on the lot when you went "window shopping"), and some (special ordered) by customers. Your car was ordered by Gibson Chevrolet for "stock" and delivered to Gibson Chevrolet once the car was built.

John once went over the ordering process but I can't seem to find it. Maybe he'll chime in again, but in a nutshell, the dealer filled out the order form for what he wanted and sent it to the local Zone Office. If there weren't any issues, the Zone Office forwarded it to the Central Office in Detroit. If THEY didn't find any issues, the Central Office forwarded it to the local factory (Norwood or LA) for the car to be scheduled and built. If there WERE issues (for example, an option that wasn't available, an axle ratio that wasn't on the Power Team chart, etc...), the order was kicked back to the dealer to resolve. Once the car was built, it was shipped to the ordering dealer for "inventory" or to be delivered to the customer that "special ordered" it.

So what this means (re font style) is that you'd need two engines made on the same day same plant and same suffix code to compare any potential differences in font.

To add to that, there was more than one line assembling engines (with each line having their own stamps), so you would need to find another engine built at the same plant, on the same day, on the same line! (Which is why the CRG needs - and has - such a large database of engine stamp examples!!)

And yes, broach marks are extremely important when looking at the numbers.

I've no idea if that means this one is a restamp, or if different stamps were used at various time, or even simultaneously?

Read THIS from John.
