With all respect, some CRG members may not frequent the other board and would learn from the post here. Smiley

I don't think we can go by the 1983 covers for verification as there is enough difference between the 1965 Chevy II 3871174 and the 1968-69 Camaro 3871174 pictures in the parts book alone.  To use covers 14-15 years later than what we are interested (68) in would be way out there IMO.  I am afraid any stamp is long gone from my covers but will pull the other 3 to look anyway.  You do realize my car is a SS/RS.......right?

Can't find any numbers on a quick look at the back side.  Does anyone have any idea if there are numbers on wheel covers to start with and if so where?

Keeping what John said in mind, if you look in the parts book you will notice that the covers change appearance but have the same part number for different years.  For instance, the 1965 Chevy II cover has the same number as the 68-69 Camaro cover.  We stated the thread with 68 covers being the topic and that is what is on my car.  I can't really speak to what other years may look like with any certainty though beyond what is in the parts book and it is really hard to tell what one is looking at (again keeping in mind what John has said).  By that I mean, the page is white but given the shape and the voids in the cover and looking at it on the page I see black areas on the wheel cover.  I know for instance, from real world observation that an area is "open" on a particular cover but it "appears" in the picture as black. Is it really black (painted) or is it the artist trying to show the opening.  Tell you what Arno.....I am going to go and pull one of the covers from my car and see if I can find any numbers.  Will let you know what I find if anything.

I picked my car up at the dealer and it has never been out of my hands since and it has had the #3 covers on it from day one.  The silver can't be incorrect as they did come on my new car........Why would dealers swap them anyway?  Something doesn't ring right there with Mr Ball if you think about it.  They are going to put them in the trunk or car at the plant and there is not going to be that much of a chance at the dealership (small & low volume in my case at the time) for a set of SS covers to be put on some other car.

Tinkerr may be correct.  The numbers I provided you however are from my 68 Chassis Service Manual for the Camaro and right from the Carb specifications section (Cool.  It is a table with engine displacement/hp and provides the make, model and part number for that combo (396/325).  There is a note provided for the 396/325 one I picked for you that says it is for "Camaro only".  Maybe someone with original equipment will provide you with the info you need.  Sorry I can't be of more definite help than this Embarrassed

Go to the CRG Reports button in the upper left corner and click on it.  Then click on the "cooling systems" report and go to the bottom of the page and you will find a picture of the 4 blade fan.

It doesn't, unfortunately, look like your going to get much more on this.  John has pretty much put the brochure thing to rest.  All I can tell you is that being the original owner of a 68 SS that came with, and still on it, the wheel covers (we have been calling them hub caps but....) are as you described in your #3: only single inner ring painted argent silver.  Besides, how much better it can get than an original owner with original equipment providing you with info Smiley ..... no relying on memory or what a previous owner says was on the car when they bought it.  If your still in doubt for some reason and you can think of something that I can look at on the covers or whatever then let me know and I'll have a try at it for you.

Rochester 4MV Carb with Part numbers: Auto ='s 7028218 and Man Trans ='s 7028217.  Also, hopefully not to confuse you but to inform only, I believe that VERY early in the 68 production year some 325 hp cars COULD have received 7016817 with automatic trans equiped vehicles.

Interesting.  Mine is an early June Nor car and I assume the show room car was as well (Nor I mean) with its build date somewhere (best guess  Grin) around a month before the end of the second week of May in 68 (when I ordered my car).  I wonder, is the brochure an early version for the 68 year?

Can you be more specific about the carb you are interested in?  Please clarify what carb you are talking about by part number or list number or application.  The 396 engines had two different carbs for 1968.  The list 4053 (396/375) had bronze filters in the fuel inlets for instance.  Many owners removed them as constant replacement of these filters over time resulted in stripping the threads of the fuel bowls and so folks put in an inline filter.

I'm the original owner of my car.  It is a 68 L78 SS/RS with the Custom Interor package (unrestored/original).  The hup caps that came on the car (and still on it)were your #3.  While I am not in a position to say that no other Camaro ever had a different cap with this combination package, I have seen at least one other car with the same ones as mine.  I vividly remember this other car because it was in the show room (sold) when I was ordering my car and it was almost exactly like what I was going to order and I could hardly take my eyes off of it......anyway, it had the same caps as mine.

I agree with what Festival provided you with one exception.  I believe 6416712 was the 1st design (early) for all 67 327 and 350's and not 6416148.  Maybe Ed can see what his P&A has for you.

509  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine part numbers for 67 350 on: November 15, 2005, 07:51:13 PM
I think the original equipment starter for your car had part number 1107365 and was stamped with either 1107365 or 1107388.  In January of 1970 the part was superceeded with 1108418 and went then to 1108400 in March of 1970..  Hope that helps you out.

I was responding to his question about the 3916637 number.  Sorry if I scarred you Undecided
