I'm pretty sure I know where these originate from but will hold off until Kevin gets the pics of his friends car for us.  I'm not holding back on you guys  Grin just being judicious here.  They are not accidentally "X" double stamped I'm sure of that.  Kevin, what size engine does your friend believe is in his vette?  Try and get the casting date (see what the dates are for the heads and intake are too if possible).  Can you also give us some history on the car please.  I would be surprised if anyone would find these letters delineated in any books anywhere.

Since you have fluid at the wheel cylinders then there must be a mechanical problem with the brake set-up within the wheels.  Do you have a shop manual to reference?  If so I would suggest looking at the pictures closely to see if there might be something reversed....such as a spring or the star wheel etc.  There has to be something mechanical wrong or something in the "workings" or the mechanical part of the brake in the wheel and not the new wheel cylinders.  I know this may seem obvious but it would not be the first time a part was installed backwards or upside down.   Smiley

Do you get any movement of the rear pads at all when the brake is applied?

I have an idea as to what this may be but before I say would it be possible for you to take a picture of the pad stamp and post it?  If you can, JohnZ would you please look at it and give your opinion on the V0706 part and if you believe it to be an original GM stamp?  Kevin, what else can you tell us about the block that might put an approximate date on it?  Thanks?

Perhaps Rich is on target.  Taking into consideration they just neglected to delineate like you did in your post for the Camaro for 67-68.  I have had my head in these books for many years and if I had to make a call on this at this point I would say because the 69 has the separate listing for the Camaro it is the correct p/n for the entire year.  Especially since the 5690846 was apparently not being mixed with, or used instead of, any other part up to 5/70.  Sorry if my 2 cents upsets you Jeff but what do I know anyway.

It looks like the original part number for the 396 (325 & 350 HP versions) was 3860008.

To clarify my earlier post.....
Don't know that this will clarify things any but the 5690846 was definitely used for the 67 & 68 years and was superceded in May of 70 with part number 7803820.

Steve
By superceded I meant the part was "removed from service".  It was not "transferred" as in a p/n being "mixed" with another p/n until exhausted nor "substituted" as in a p/n being "used" instead of another p/n that was still available.   Huh   Hope that helps and doesn't just make it more confusing.  Smiley

Looks like the original part number for a 68 Camaro ourside mirror gasket was 3927398

Regarding your 3/26/06 post.  I think it depends on your vehicle date compared to the part date that determines "replacement" (service) parts vs. original production parts that one might have on a car.   Huh  By that I mean if a part was superceded during a cars production it was a new part showing up on the line and in the parts department as a service replacement for vehicles already out the door.  BTW, in your chart regarding the 5 digit #'s the 7028299 - should be "28299" and 7036448 would be "36448" I think.

It appears you got a "left over" 28299 packaged in a 7036448 box which may relate back to JohnZ 3/26 post Smiley

Almost.  I'm not sure the 7024764 number is the "original" number but that would be logical.  I think it could be one of several at this point.  There does not seem to be a supercede date for the 4764 to the 7028299 though but it obviously continued to be used past 5/68 in my case.

It's the same as what you had......"68 ALL (396)

7036448 actually replaced by 7028299 in May of 68.  I find it interesting that the part books (so far) don't show the 7024764 but it's in the AIM and it's what is on my original and unmolested 396 Smiley  I love stuff like this Cheesy

You might want to review this thread.  http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=396.0   The 7024764 has also been showing up on 396's.

Looks like the original part number was 3931575.  Used for all 68's with 4BC 327 & 350 engines except special high perf ones.  Rochester carb was used with this manifold originally too.
