Jim,

The 40669 was used on all 69 302 and 350 engines. Sounds like it's the correct one, but I can't be positive without seeing it.

Greg,

Does your car have factory A/C? If so, then yes, you should have a strip of weatherstripping on the top of the Radiator Support. (All cars recieved weatherstripping on the Cowl.)

2. No one source that I know of. The A.I.M. is pretty good, but even it doesn't show all the decals. Which ones are you having trouble with?

Thanks John. I knew you'd come through!!

I can't say when the change to the left cover started, but the P&A shows the following for 68 and 69 Camaro's:

68 Chevelle, Camaro - Cover Assy, Left (Chrome) - 3925567
68-69 Nova, Chevelle, Camaro - Cover Assy, Right (Chrome) - 3925574
69 All - Cover Assy, Left (Chrome) - 3947883

My car is a 05D 68, so we at least know the change didn't occur until after that. Les has a later car than I do. Maybe he can add info to this.

Well... The P&A is no good on this one since mine only shows the 69 Camaro for the "Pump Assembly" (No 67 or 68 Camaro listed). However, all is not lost becuase it DOES show the "Valve Assembly (Straight Hose Pipe)" as P/N 4914356. This was used on the 60-62 Corvair, 67 Camaro and 69 Chevelle.

You should be able to get a Corvair unit fairly cheap since the Corvair guys are known tightwads (myself included, since I now own a 69 MONZA CONVERTIBLE)!!

If you need some contact info for used Corvair parts houses, let me know...

Bill,

Your Trim Tag assembly date (08C) and VIN (671815) match up, so that's a good thing. However, with the growing number of reproduction (fake) tags available, it would be best if you could post a picture of the Trim Tag. That way we can give you a "go/no-go" on the car. FYI, the MOST faked Trim tag is the X33/D80 which is what you have, so you really have to be carefull.

There are a couple of vents in the car. The fist are the side kick panel vents. These are the ones that you open with the slider knobs. The second are the dash vents. These open with the knobs that look like door lock knobs. The final vent is the Cowl. This is where the windshield wipers are located. It's highly improbable that the cowl is the location of the leak because it drains to the sides, but you never know.

The best thing to do would be to have someone hold a hose on the car (in different areas) while you start looking for leaks under the dash. Once they find the right spot, it should be easy to see water coming inside.

Ed
2123  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Water leak - need help on: September 12, 2006, 07:24:21 PM
Although it could be other things, more than likely you have a water leak at the base of the windshield. After all these years, the dash rusts away in the corners and the windshield seal get brittle. These two things will allow water to leak in under certain conditions with rain and washing your car being two of the most common. The only way to tell is to pull the chrome from the windshield and examine your dash.

69 production went from late August, 1968 through early November, 1969. Post pictures of the Trim Tag and the VIN and we can give you more help.

Kevin,

To answer your questions I've included a couple of pictures that might help. My covers are original and have never been rechromed, so they look a little battle worn! Note the original "flash chrome" process that's worn off and the "dents" in the cover from the drippers being welded on.

1. There are two stands on each cover. The drivers side rear spark plug wire stand is in front of the rear mounting bolt so it doesn't hit the wiper motor when removing. (See the top picture).
2. No "slant" on the Camaro big block covers, but a "dimple" on the driver side (rear) for rocker arm clearance instead. The "slant" was a Corvette thing (See the top picture).
3. Not sure about this one since my retainers and screws have been replaced, but I believe the "TR" screws are not chrome plated, but the retainers are. JohnZ will have to answer this one for you.

Edit: The big block valve cover report is now done so I've added the LINK.

Ed

Top picture is of my drivers side cover... (You can see the rear spark plug wire stand in front of the rear mounting bolt and the "dimple" at the end of the cover to the very right of the picture.)



Second picture is of my passengers side cover... (Not the original oil filler cap, sorry to say!) Note the wear spots where the chrome has worn off.



2127  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Pace Car Yes/No on: September 10, 2006, 02:30:38 PM
You need to contact THESE GUYS. They can give more info than I, but from what I see so far, everything looks good for a Pacer. It "may" even be an actual Indy 500 car since the Van Nuys assembly code (L181A), and the assembly date (04C) matches up perfectly! Send them an email and let us know...

Oh yeah, what's the VIN?

Phil,

AM's usually range from less then $20.00 for junk all the way up to $200.00 or more for excellent examples. AM/FM's run from $300.00 for junk, up to greater than $800.00 for excellent examples. It all depends on how much you're willing to pay, and for what kind of condition.

Add me to the list of the millions of folks looking for a 68 AM/FM...

2129  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Questions on 68 RS SS 396 smog set-up on: September 09, 2006, 01:47:23 PM
All the tubes should basically be the same with the exception of the bends and length. More than likely you could probably get any year tube to fit any other year big block with slight modifications as required for clearance issues. If you have some in storage, I would give it a shot! What have you got to loose...

If you meant the SMOG TUBES, the answer is no. Apparently the A/C tubes are different than the non-A/C tubes, so I was wrong in my replay above.
