Maybe he was high or drunk, or just didn't know what he was doing. Not a professional job.  I guess he should have bought Jerry's book.  Wink

I believe N9602043 should be 9N602043, which is the VIN of the car the transmission belongs to.  The February date aligns with the VIN.  If the car VIN matches the transmission, check to see if you misread the 8 for a 9.

A lot of money ($11,000) for a 30-40K motor that already had extensive work done to it.   Did he have the smog equipment to go with the manifolds?   Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the block was bored .30 you can add 5 Cubic Inches to the total engine size.  Don't get me wrong I'm not saying you got a bad deal, it's just something I personally wouldn't do.

When looking at the number three picture of the eBay car, item #320110448608, the front left Camaro emblem blends into  the black stripe. Is this the correct placement for the emblem?

  If I remember right, Hurst did not start the T-Top craze till 1975.  Oldsmobile had the first tops. I have never heard or seen a first generation Camaro with them. Second generation Camaros have them.

Jay. when a block is decked, normally all the engine identification numbers are removed from the rightside boss on the block.

Glad to be home, I spent the last four days working the track at Talladega.  I also had to dodge a few (Budweiser) beer cans.   Cheesy

 Let them soak in penetrating oil, and use vise grips to remove.  Sometimes tapping the top with a small hammer helps when using the vise grips.

Do a search on eBay and see how many hits you will get on cowl tag rivets.

Sounds like a butchered car to me.  I would stay away from it.

David, I have a non-AC car and my temperature selector has cold on it.  I believe an AC equipped car will have AC on the selector.  You should also be able to tell my the outside heater box.    Thanks Mark, you beat me to it. Wink

Not only the tag, but the rivits.

Emanuel, I have replaced hundreds of ball joints in my career without removing the lower control arms.  This can be very dangerous if you don't know what your steps are.  I suggest buying a manual or having a repair shop do it if you don't have the proper tools.  Why are you replacing them? Lower ball joints have to be "unloaded" ( pressure taken off them) to check.  Good luck with your project.

 With more and more trim tags showing up on eBay, it's nice to know we have people like Mark keeping up with them.  I did a search and found these tags on eBay, three X-11 ($51-$303), X-55 ($150), X-66 ($800), and three X-77 ($460-$950).  I have seen X-33 tags go for over a thousand dollars.
 People buying these tags aren't framing and hanging them on their walls.  I've seen sellers in their ads call Mark and other members the "Camaro Police" when the ads were questioned.  Just be careful and do more investigating when you find that dream car.  Wish I would have.

David, look at the 302 valve adjustment article under CRG reports.  The information at the top header of this site is very helpful.
