Hard to tell from the pictures, but I'd say probably.

The AIM shows items 12 & 13 added 10-31-68. Would that be the time frame parts made it into the production line?

No, that's only the date the engineering change was recorded in the AIM. The actual change could have been up to several months before or after that date.

CV05-M119 isn't a GM part number. Probably aftermarket, as is the horn cap.

Read THIS, especially footnote number 2.

Kurt's right. I just went out and checked and mine are brushed. Here's the oil pressure gauge.

Those are actually very minute scratches on the plastic lens. The faces themselves are smooth.

Original assembly line gauges are shown in reply number 6 above (see first picture below). Note how the needles are "staked" onto the shaft with a brass cap.

The second and third pictures show the correct needle paint. Krylon "red glowing orange fluorescent" (P/N 3101), which should be available at just about any auto parts or home improvement store (I got mine at O'Reilly several months ago).

And the bottom picture is how the gauges look after new paint.

Ed do you have any other information on the dealership?

Not much. I used to pass them when I would go see my girlfriend in San Diego. They weren't a very big outfit if I remember correctly. Kind of a mom and pop dealership!

Car's not in the database, but if it's still around I hope they don't try and cash in on that warranty. Ed Taylor Chevrolet went out of business in 1971!

Yes, a 67 Z came with the M21, but you could also get the M21 with the L78.

Since this is an M20, it could be from a L48 or an L35.

It's an M20. Two rings on the input shaft.

Chick, if your car is Norwood built, you can take it to the bank that's where the hole was drilled. Los Angeles cars had it in either one of two locations. 3C in the AIM, or just to the left of that at the other dimple. Here's a picture of my LA car. Note the "alternate location" for LA cars.

No, that information isn't available.

74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: RPO HO1 Option ('68)? on: January 28, 2014, 03:38:27 PM
The axle ratios you see in the RPO SPREAD SHEET are for "non-standard" applications NOT listed in the "Power Teams" chart.

Another way of putting it is any axle shown in the "Power Teams" chart for a particular engine/transmission combination, was NOT included in the H01 count. To be included in the H01 count, a customer would have to request an axle ratio that WASN'T in the "Power Team" chart. There were several available (RPO H01, G94, G96, etc...). In 1968, only 556 customers that had engine/transmission combinations that didn't inlude the ability to get the 3.07 axle, ordered H01 so they could.

Nope. No gasket.
