Daniel Any CRG member with access to database

How many 68 SS/RS 396 vehicles do we have in the database?  Of those listed, are their owners, for the most part(if the info is known), current members of the Forum?  Depending on the results I may do a survey .......Thanks!

So would you get a chrome 68 HL cover (per your seconded paragraph) if you were replacing your 67 HL cover?  If so then you would get a chrome one to go with your black center RS 67 grille Huh  Right? Huh

I wonder why they were so quick to replace the chrome center but yet let the 67 black HL covers (3898135 & 6) be "converted" over to the 68 covers (3919063 & 4....chrome pieces) in 11/68 and 10/68 respectively?  I must be missing something cause it doesn't fit for me.  Also, would they not have realized 68 owners/shops would have wanted (needed) chrome center replacement centers?

Just to make sure I stated my last thread correctly here is the link to what Rich said.  http://www.camaros.org/cgi-bin/webbbs4.33/cuscrg/cuscrg.pl?read=12908

It seems odd to me too.  It just so happens that I bought a new 3919060 from a Chev dealer (parts dept) in Northern VA on 1/25/72....it was black.  Does the '71, '76, and '80 info you have indicate that the grille is chrome?

I'd vote for typo.  That seems very odd, to say the least, on the Canadian vs US 69 numbers for the HL covers.  I originally asked the center grill question due partly to a post in the old form on the subject.  It was regarding SS/RS black vs. chrome (horizontal) grilles on 68's.  Rich answered the question but did not supply any dates.  It looks like the 060 grille was the "part" for both the 67 & 68 by September of 68 and by what Rich provided it appears it was available in "black" only.  The HL covers though were still apparently (as per your P&A for the LH anyway) available in chrome as my info has the 68 LH HL cover not being substituted for the 67 part until November 68 and the 68 RH HL cover not being substitued for the 67 part until October 68 (even though your P&A shows it to be used effective 9/68...but that is perhaps to be expected given it was being "substituted" in).  I was trying to nail down the exact date when the center chrome grille part was no longer available.  At this point it looks like it must have been available through the 68 production run and then a decision to, as the old post states, go with one part for the two years.  I wonder if there is some documentation (ESL or something) somewhere on the center grille "black" only decision?

Steve

Edit:  Ed, I pulled another source I have and I think I have an answer (sort of  Smiley ) for the Canadian vs US issue.  The Canadian #'s were substituted in November of 68 with the US #'s.  So, it would seem the Canadian publication was just behind.  But that begs the question, did GM/Chevy originally plan on using the 3958003 and 3958004 part for 69 originally?  Steve

Could be the solenoid then.  Remove starter and take it to Advance Auto or Auto Zone and have them test it.  They will be able to ID solenoid/starter problem for you.

Grin Thats funny!  It's also interesting as the right side was not substituted until 10/68 so they must have been anticipating the change over in the P&A 9/68 printing since it was so close.  Either that or you have discovered that the engineers were going to use the 68 headlight cover on the 69 model year Wink but.......

Do you hear any "clicking" at the starter when you turn the key?

It does appear that the 060 had replaced the 841 part by 9/68.  What do you show for 3898135 and 3919063?  Are they still separate in 9/68 P&A?

Would you mind checking your 68 P&A (date) for me in 1.266 and see if the 67 center grille (3921841) is still listed separately from the 68 center grille (3919060) or if they have been listed as 67-68 w/ RS center .....3919060 at the point of your P&A printing.  I'm curious about something and would appreciate your checking for me.  Thanks!!

I'm confused.  What intake manifold do you believe is on the car now?

Are you able to see any numbers on the bottom of the intake?  If so, what are they?

"1965 - 69 Chevrolet by the numbers" says for 1969 302/290 piston pin was floating pin.

I'm the original owner of my 68 which still has the original L78 engine and attachments/components.  The pulley has the # and CV on it.
