31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 brake booster with drums on: February 01, 2014, 09:44:45 PM
Drum brake master cylinder for power brakes (p/n 5460465) has dual bleed valves, one for front and one for rear, due to the master cylinder being mounted at an incline when bolted to the booster.  The correct master cylinder (if configured / rebuilt properly) also has RPV's (Residual Pressure Valves - a type of check valve) internally at each connection behind the seats.    The RPV's prevent pressure bleed down back into the master cylinder and keep the shoes properly positioned.  No proportioning valve needed.

Attached link has some good information and used to have some attachments which for some reason are no longer there.

Maybe Kurt or one of the other moderators can address the missing attachments.

Thanks gentlemen!
 Back in '65, were Canadian blocks suffix-coded any differently than U.S. blocks?

If you mean McKinnon-built engines, no - the only difference was the first character (it was a "K" instead of "F" or "T").

OK John, you've taught me something new again.. Smiley   Until now, I've known *nothing* about a Canadian engine foundry for Chevy.  What years were Chevy engines built at McKinnon?  I've never seen an engine so marked... (perhaps because I've always lived in the southern US, and never seen a Canadian built 'old' Chevy)...  but being the curious sort, I did a little search and found several references to the McKinnon plant, and this entry on 'GM plants', which had quite a bit of detail on McKinnon Industries.

An additional reference:  
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1979.0

When I purchased my '69 RS in Nov 1991, although it had a 327 in it, it wasn't the correct '69 Camaro 327.  In April 1994 I was fortunate enough to pull a 327 from a '69 Camaro Coupe that was being parted out - complete engine, that is everything except for the heads - which I found a couple of years later in a '69 full size Chevy (Impala as I recall).  I later realized that although I had the correct heads with the correct markings, accessory mounting holes, casting number, etc. that they had actually been manufacdtured by McKinnon Industries and are clearly marked Canada - refer to the attached link and pictures below.

Not sure how those Canadian heads wound up in a full size '69 Chevy in a junkyard in south Louisiana - but they did.

My 01C Norwood built '69 RS; X1 and what looks like a B to the left of the X
34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Temperature sensor question on: January 02, 2014, 08:25:46 AM
In my mind locating the sensor in the head instead of the intake always made good sense - sensor will always be in the coolant flow; hot or cold engine; normal or low coolant level, etc.  I'd find the correct sensor for the head.

...... and stamping a on the OD of the pinion gear.

correction to my previous post - should be ".....OD of ring gear..."

My NOR 01C 69 RS probably had a 307 in it originally (original engine had been removed by the time I purchased the car in 1991 and replaced with a 327).  It still has the original PG transmission and open rear end with 2.73 gears.  Gearing verified by axle code and stamping a on the OD of the pinion gear.  Can supply pictures later if needed.  Currently at 33,000 ft traveling on business and don't have pics with me.

Found this link on the topic from 2007 that might be of interest as well:

Gary,
    Thanks for the info and I do understand that the body number was not sequential.  I will never get the correct body number without the paper work but still would like to know what was around it. The 2 cars I know built 11C are 6798 cars apart and the body number is 7037 numbers apart and the oldest car or one built first had the larger number which is not in sequence.  I believe I will have a special tag made after I get the car built something like the one you described. Thanks Gary

A few years ago I was trying to correlate the body number of my 69 01C Norwood built RS to an actual build date and I had put togehter the following from various sources; i.e. this forum, online auctions, etc.  In my short, non statistical list, the 01B builds vary from 226xxx to body numbers 231xxx.  Beginning with 01C the body numbers dropped back to 220xxx and 225xxx before jumping up to 237xxx.  Close, yes - but definitely not sequential and too much variability to draw any new conclusions.

Build      Body Number

12B       208874
12C       213656
12D       218542
01B       226339
01B       229291
01B       231468
01B       231654
01C       220831
01C       225292
01C       225431
01C       237549

In those days, cars were selling like hotcakes, and the system was stretched to its limits most of the time; for a stamping plant, that meant racks were in short supply, and you can't produce stampings unless you have the proper shipping racks for the panels (each panel had hundreds of special racks designed just for that panel) - there weren't any "warehouses" to store stampngs - the only "storage" was in the rail cars that hauled the racks of panels to the assembly plants.

Referring back to post #7 on page 1 of this thread, would it be kind of odd then that the sheetmetal date code stamped into the driver side door of my car is H34 for an 01C built car?  Quite a time diffrerence between the 34th calendar week of 1968 and 01C bulid (the 3rd week of January 1969).

One more example - found this today on the passenger side door of my 01C Norwood built '69RS

My 01C Norwood built '69 RS is currently in paint and body.  Driver (LH) door has one stamp (H34) - at the bottom.  Couldn't find andy stamp on the passenger door.

Both cars remained licensed in NV but titled in LA until just this past July when they were both moved into the family trust which required retitling in Nevada in the name of the trust.   
I'd ask a lawyer about this. I was told trusts and vehicles shouldn't mix. If one of the cars is in an accident, they could pursue the $ in the trust.

Thanks for the input - competent estate attorney put the trust together.

I'm giving serious consideration to going.  Plenty of air miles, hotel and car rental points as well.  Downside would be having to stay 125 miles or so away in Omaha due to all hotels within 50 miles being already booked - or at least that is what is being reported.

If I go, watching the car auction would be interesting in and of itself - I personally have no plans to purchase a vehicle - although, if you look at page 4 of the inventory list, there are twelve '63 - '64 Chevy pickup trucks with less than 10 miles on the odometer.  Probably a retty good project opportunity in there somewhere.  What I'd be interested in, personally, would be some of the Chevy dealership memorabillia, shop manuals, etc. that will also be a part of the acution.

I live in the small town of Minden, NV which was founded in 1905 by the Dangberg family.  One of the brothers, Clarence, opened a Chevy dealership and called it C.O.D Garage.  (The C.O.D. stands for Clarence O. Dangberg - not Cash On Delivery Cheesy.)

About 15 years ago, C.O.D. Garage was purchased by a mega Chevy dealership and within a very short period of time, there was nothing left of the old C.O.D. Garage.  A parrt of that transition to new ownership was a large, similar auction which attracted big money from all across the country.  Although the "stored" car inventory was not as great, there were probably 50 or so vehicles that had been put in storage by C.O.D. Garage for various reasons that went across the block - and then there was the dealership memoribillia.  I was lucky enough to attend and it was quite a day..
