Tinkerr,

Yes, there is a chart in the P&A, but you need to know the transmission, rear axle ratio and the exact tire size. We know all but the tire size. Without that you can't work out the speedo "drive" or "driven" gears. Here's the 69 Chart to help. If you can give me the part numbers of the two gears ("driven" and "drive"), I can tell you which one's to get.

Does THIS CHART help?

2193  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1968 Camaro Sport Coupe - which centers for my rally wheels? on: July 07, 2006, 04:22:38 PM
Yes, I've read that, but it doesn't explain the two different center cap Ornaments. One with "Chevrolet Motor Division Disk Brakes" and one with just "Chevrolet Motor Division". If it were true that in 67, if you wanted Rally Wheels you also had to order Disk Brakes, then it would be listed as such on the order form, and I've never seen anything that stipulates this. Of course, the CRG WHEEL REPORT shows no Rally Wheel available with Drum Brakes, so I guess that's the way it is, but I'm still not totally convinced.

2194  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Mystery Solved! on: July 07, 2006, 01:30:40 PM
Well guys, I was directed to Mark Ellis of the 1969 CORVAIR GROUP and he stated that basically, the "D" is an indicator of the Interior Paint Color. On the Trim Tag (I'll use mine as an example), you have an Exterior Color Code ("53" Glacier Blue), an Exterior Soft Top Color ("A" White), an Interior Fabric Type and Color ("704" Metallic Dark Blue Coated Fabric) and the Interior Paint Code ("D" Blue). This told the Fisher Body workers what color to paint not only the outside of the car, but the inside. So mystery solved, my car was assembled the 1st week of December, 1968.

After Mark and I talked, I found another site called CORVAIRKID that shows this exact information for the 66 model year!

Lance,

68 and 69 Camaro's came with the fluted (tall) caps. 67's had the flat caps with either "Chevrolet Motor Division Disk Brakes" (for disk brake cars), or just "Chevrolet Motor Division" (for drum brake cars).

2196  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Interesting date on the Trim Tag on: July 07, 2006, 10:48:09 AM
John,

Yes, I read that on the 1969 CORVAIR GROUP page. Interesting reading...

One of the guys on the CORVAIR CENTER web site said there may have been a problem with the body initially (that "A" week), and sent back for some reason, then released again during the 4th ("D") week. That doesn't sound plausable because if that were true, they would have had to remove the tag to stamp the "D". I'm assuming they never did this and it's just a fluke. We've seen lots of mistakes over the years on trim tags, my 68 Camaro included. I'll just chalk it up to that.

2197  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Question on Block codes...??? on: July 06, 2006, 08:51:55 PM
Kevin,

Correct with an addition that the engine could also have had a 3 speed manual transmission. The heads are listed as being used in 1969 applications with a note that they "could" have been used in 1968 engines built after June 25th, 1968, of which one of yours is that EXACT date!!

Ed
2198  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Interesting date on the Trim Tag on: July 06, 2006, 07:08:33 PM
Okay guys, I realize it's not Camaro related, but I figured the CRG might be interested in this anyway...

I just purchased a 69 Corvair Monza Convertible (1 of only 521 manufactured) and the trim tag has me stumped! Note the "12AD" assembly date!! Okay, so what gives???

Any ideas?

Ed

2199  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Big Block Water Pump info??? (Short) on: July 06, 2006, 05:35:26 PM
I believe the 3990993 number is a new number for the short BB pump. Can't help you with the 336100 number, sorry.

2200  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Date code info on distributor on: July 06, 2006, 05:28:30 PM
67 and 68 Camaro 302 over the counter replacement distributor assembled October 21st, 1973 or possibly 1983. Probably not 1993 but you never know. I have no idea how long GM supported that distributor.

2201  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Holley 3310-2, what is it off of?????? on: June 29, 2006, 10:58:30 PM
Karl,

The Holley 3310 series is a "Universal" replacement carb and has a rating of 750CFM. However, if it also had a GM part number of 3878261-EH on it, it would have been used in the 1965 Chevelle Z16 396! Your date code of 0762 indicates a carb assembled on the 76th day of the year in 1982 or possibly 1992, but I believe by 1992 the 3310-3 or 3310-4 was out. Someone might be able to pinpoint the exact year for you better than I.

Bob,

Have you checked the Assembly Manual? I know the 68 has the exploded diagram. Not sure about the 67...

See. I knew John could answer this one!! Thanks.

2205  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: part #'s for wheel cylinders on: June 15, 2006, 03:49:28 PM
Paul,

In response to your first question, there are several good resources for original part numbers, with the Price and Accessory Schedule (P&A 34) being the best. However, the AIM, as well as Hollander or Mitchell interchanges also contain valuable information.

The second question is related to "part numbers" -vs- "casting numbers". The number you see on the side of the cylinder is the casting number of that particular part. This is assigned to any part that's cast in a foundry. This, along with the other sub components that make up an assembly are then assigned a part number. This is the number I gave you from the P&A. Casting numbers are sometimes, but not always the same as the part number, and I'm not sure why. JohnZ can probably answer this one.

Did this help?
