As Charley suggested, in the past I've tweeked the bracket to get the door to close the last 1/4 inch.

Will the oil line caps from the reproduction oil lines fit that fitting that Dave posted the same as original? Looks like I'm in the market for another block fitting then. The one at HBC is the correct fitting in reproduction? I believe I have a reproduction oil line from Ricks as a spare and one that is currently on my car now, also from Ricks should fit the HBC fitting then?



On my orange Z I had to replace the line and the reproduction tapered fitting seemed a little oversized (didn't seat very deep), so I bought a 1/8" fitting kit from Advance Auto locally which had compression fittings.  I cut the end and installed, which worked perfect. I did it as precaution, however the repop may work fine.


Steve, you mean this fitting kit correct? Shouldn't be an issue using the nylon oil line. I'm thinking the oil line kit I got from Ricks in 2000 has the small ferrule already on the oil line as apposed to the bigger one your speaking of on the current oil line kit. Or should I use a new ferrule? 

See how deep the ferrule seats. The concern I had was only a couple of threads caught so I used the ferrule from the kit pictured. Sounds like you should be good to go....

His post on TC was sorta confusing as to which one he believed to be correct; his first photo was the one with the 'internally threaded' compression fitting and the last two photos he posted showed an externally threaded compression fitting.   
Steve:  You're saying that you agree with Dave that his 'first photo' shows the correct 'internally threaded' compression fitting?

Just to add some 'brightness' to this thread, it seems to be a great place to follow thru on my promise to Steve S. (PaceMe) to post his photo here for all to see.. Smiley     Here he's shown posed with a very original (I think?).. '67 little old lady owned, one owner, original, never-smoked-in, but slightly-dusty SSRS...  oh.. and I should add 'back yard find' to make this more interesting to the barn find folks.. Smiley

PS.   It was great meeting you at Carlisle (finally) and getting to discuss some of this stuff personally, and thanks for the loaner badge.. Smiley ..    Also great to meet with Chick, TMR Eddie Sells, Skip Locaste?, Tom Flanagan (a great '69 yellow-blk Z28), and a few more whose names are escaping me right now while at Carlisle.

Gary, the car owners and enthusiast are what make this hobby and events so enjoyable and educational. I was actually certifying the dust on that barn find car. Notice my elbo did not come in contact with the dust...that is a no...no. The 11 mile 63 impala and orig owner 8700 mile 70 chevelle SS may be attending MCACN show and participate in the Vintage program.

Below is a picture of what I've seen exclusively.

Hey guys I'm getting the impression that the oil line fitting we worked out last your isn't correct. There is another post on T.C. now discussing this. So which one is correct then?

http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?p=2504706&posted=1#post2504706

I'm not sure where the confusion came from but in fact Chick and Gary asked me my opinion at the Solid Lifter Showroom @ Carlisle this past weekend and I stated that the fitting on the unrestored garnet red Z we were certifying had the correct configuration that I've seen on all unrestored I've owned and certified. This is the configuration that Dave V. showed in his first post in the above provided link to TC.

Steve,

Do you know the date on the back of it?  I thought they had switched to the 6000/8000 well before Sept??
My 09C car has an 8K tach; date on the back of it is '197 69'   which corresponds to July 16, 1969.  This is consistent with most other parts on my car, except for a few dated almost immediately in front of the engine assembly...  see photos.
ps.  I also noticed there's a label on the instrument cluster itself with large NN code (any idea what this is for?).. along with a speedo pn, and tach (with hand note - illegible unless it might be '8')??

Gary

Gary, I've never looked for the date code on the tach. I know the tach is "technically" incorrect, but I'm not sure why or how it happened. If the date code doesn't correlate to the build date of the car then it may have been replaced at some point. I believe the 7k was in the car when I purchased it because I vaguely remember comparing it to my friends other Z's in the late 70's. I'll get the date and post it later...

I hope the first of you guys to get the report back, will please post pics of what is provided, so the rest of us will see it nice and clear.
Thanks in advance!

Bullitt,

Based on what Roy Sinor has told us we will receive, and based on my own car's VIN and dealer tag and label (on the car when I purchased it in 1976), I can predict what my letter will say... Smiley

---------------------------------
    "Subject to the General Conditions listed on the reverse side, National Corvette Restorerís Society, Inc, confirms the following information exists in the GM shipping data records for the 1969 Camaro with vehicle identification number  124379N686XXX.
                    .
    The GM official Production Date was 9/17/1969

    The original delivery dealer was Dealer code 73   in zone 8 .

    The name and Address for the dealer was:
       Joe V Clayton Chevrolet, Inc
       Arab, AL  35016
"

---------------------------------------------------------------

My only point with this is that most of us know or suspect the information on our cars already, and we can calculate the production date based on the VIN, but what the service does for us is PROVIDE GM CONFIRMATION of that information!  and that is well worth the $50 IMO...   Smiley

When I get my letter, I'll update this and see how good my prediction was.... Smiley

WELL, my report came in today (#136 submitted).  

I'm not a happy camper;  I'm less knowledgable now than I thought I was before.. I missed the production date by a day (I predicted 17Sept, but it actually was the 18th.. (Not a big surprise to me, as I always knew it was one of those days.. borderline situation)...  But the real surprise I received was..   Zone 21  Dealer 73 ...   UNKNOWN....   Sad

So apparently having the Joe V Clayton plaques and tag bracket did NOT indicate the original dealer it was shipped to?  Clayton Chevrolet is Dealer 73 in Zone 8 (per the database info).

Was this car a dealer Transfer?  OR is the zone information WRONG in the records, since the dealer number of 73 is the dealer number for Clayton Chevrolet.   What does  ZONE mean?   Did it ever change for a particular dealer?  Any information or guesses appreciated.. Smiley
  


Yes, in fact in 1969 zone 11 dealer 372 was Max Myers Motors in Middlebury, IN and it appears to change to McManus Chevrolet in Chicago , Il in 1970.This is the info on my 69 Indy Pace Car.


Below is the explanation of why they change. I believe the zone is basically a territory, and territories changed as well.

From NCRS database page:

General Motors assigned zone and dealer numbers to active dealers at the time of assignment.  As dealerships changed ownership and went out of business the dealer number may be re-assigned to other new dealerships.  For this reason dates are included with this information where known.

Got my confirmation that two of mine are in the mail. Thanks Roy and all those involved to make this happen.

Possibly referencing a non gauge equipped Z, with idiot light sender switch.

Chick,
He finally got it! Good for him and a nice one at that. Can you answer me the following three questions or I can notify him personally and view the car if need be.
1. Are the door strikers allen head or torx
2. Does it have the higher RPM Tach or standard 6-8 Tach
3. The exhaust bracket on the left frame rail. Does it have the two knotches "one on the top and one on the bottom" or does it go straight across. Thanxs Dave


Dave, my 9a has the torx head strikers and the frame rail exhaust bracket has no notches. My tach is an anomaly, as its a 6-7 (l78 tach) . I haven't a clue why that is, and will check for an inspection date.

My 9a bracket is stamped  STAMP RITE as well.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 carb fuel line bracket. on: April 24, 2014, 01:22:24 PM
Here's a thread from a few years ago. I posted pictures of a bracket from I believe my 9A built Z.
 In the photos its pretty crusty, so I'll see it there are any visible stampings/markings tonight.
