Lots of accuracy issues starting with the trim tag...

A side note: SgtHawk I think your pump is for H.P. application, i.e. L78. L34=40568
Thanks for that. I had no idea. It goes to show you, anything can happen in 40+ years. I'm not surprised, fuel pumps fail... I'm sure mine was replaced with what was available at the time. Any idea if the fuel pressure is any different between the two? Maybe I SHOULD be thinking about what we talked about in the PM... hmmm.

I believe the difference is probably the pump volume/flow rate and not pressure. I think the stroke on the pump varies slightly. Too much pressure causes needle seat leakage and creates problems.

I am not finding a lot of info on the correct part number for this application. Could someone help?
I have seen claims bolted as original, crimped as original, weep holes, no weep holes, some will have dates, some will not.... on and on.

Thanks for any information/clarification

My 69 L34 survivor has its original dated pump. Goathill rebuilt it for me years ago 40568.

Danny, thoughts and prayers. I had thyroid cancer 3 years ago, however mine was localized and in only a few lymph nodes. Stay strong and be positive and before you know it you'll be back better than new.

looks like overspray under the hood. he stated original paint ?


I believe the underside was black, but its usually a rather thin coat, and it looks like it was stored in a moist environment which caused surface rust not only on the under hood surface but in the engine compartment in general. I will say the car looks to be sitting very high in both the front and rear which is not typical.

That engine compartment looks un-fluffed based on the pics in the auction. Its missing a few items and replacement maintenance parts such as hoses and master. Looks like a very good unrestored car. The condition is typical for a car left alone and unpampered. I think Gary likes it because its ORANGE....

That certainly is an unbeatable color combo eh?  Smiley      Shouldn't the underside of the hood be painted black??

My '69 Camaro Hurst Competition/Plus shifter body has these numbers on it 1090731H. Are those the numbers that the date code is taken from? If so, can someone let me know the date of my shifter?

Thanks, Warren


Hi Warren, October of 69.

I believe 400 series stainless is magnetic and 300 series is not, unless certain machining is perforned on it such as threads and such.

I had a gardner chambered system on my black rs/z and to me it had an unpleasant tone so I installed a gardner transverse system and I'm very happy. However on my 69 SS L34 car I replaced the original chambered with a gardner chambered system and it seems the 396 has a better tone. That reminds me I need to sell my small block gardner chambered system which has been sitting in my basement for 9 yrs.

He had a home in Media Pa. at the time. I don't know if he purchased the car or it was loaned to him through Penske Chev. Bill stated it was Mark's personal car, but I never asked if it was actually owned or if it was titled. Thinking about it Penske probably probably provided a loaner car to him. Good question.... Yes Pa was a title state at that time.

I read somewhere Mark hated orange interiors Smiley

A interesting question would be what happened to Marks personal Z/28. Seems like that car might be worth a little more if it was shown Mark was the original owner. Anyone ever heard of it for sale or in a collection?

I never really attempted to locate his car, but ended up buying one that looked identical to what I remembered as a 12 year old. I can't be certain if his was equipped with the RS option. I will say that Bill Scott stated my car looked identical to Mark's.

I'll post a few pics as well for you orange lovers Smiley.

Mid- Ohio didn't upload, but is up now. Although the quality isn't great, it's amazing the insight you gain on what the Penske team was going through and how driven his team was even back in the day. Yep a formula for success....

I had rubbing issue on my Yenko and Orange Z and I found the solution was to put 215-65-15. The 70 series rubbed just enough to annoy me Smiley
