Hey Lloyd, your bracket on the grill emblem looks to be installed wrong. Shouldn't it be flipped around? Was it this way on the RS grills?
I think Lloyd's emblem retainer is flipped and rotated, as it should be 'square' with the grill, and with the 'lips' registered around the grill bars.

You can see by the undisturbed speed nuts (previous photo) that the backing plate has been on there a long time. The grill is original to the car and the emblem is in the correct position. I'm not suggesting the backing plate is correctly installed, however it appears the emblem has never been off the grill.

That molding detail doesn't appear on my original RS grill:

Yeah, like the brake booster hose bracket.

Be vigilant Gary, theses unicorns can be found, I recently located this one: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=11264.0

Hey Lloyd, can I get a really nice pic of your Z for my computer? Man, I love 10 10 Camaro's.

How could I possibly say no to that...PM your email address Gary and I will send you a high-res photo. 
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Oil Pressure Gauge Block Sender Fitting on: September 17, 2013, 07:13:05 PM
Gary, from my research this style of fitting is generally what's available from the reproduction parts suppliers:

55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Z/28 Power Brake Hose Bracket - Original? on: September 17, 2013, 01:44:39 PM
I have been trying to locate a power brake vacuum hose bracket for my 69 Z and as they are difficult to source they are fairly expensive. I have recently located one however before I make the purchase decision I'd like to confirm its a factory original.  I have a single photo of one I believe to to be original (see photo: "Original Example") that I am using as a reference however I cannot confirm its authenticity.  I've also posted 2 photos of the bracket that I have been offered to purchase (see photos: "Offered to Purchase"). I did note there is a small crack in the corner crease of the bracket. As there are subtle differences between the brackets and as I only have one data point as a reference I would appreciate input from members who have an original bracket. Photos would of course be helpful.

Interesting head marking detail, thanks Jerry.

Lloyd....don't know for sure about the '69 but my original '68 Z28 has two different manufacturers for the exhaust manifold bolts.  One side had the raised circle bolts with a "RSC" inside the circle.  The other side had a flatter circle on the head with a squiggly "X" inside the circle.  My computer that has my camera software on it is down right now so I can't send a photo at present.  Will try later tonight when I get it back up, that is if your interested.

Yes, I'm interested Jerry, please post photos when you can.  I would like to see examples of head markings from a few known original cars as well determine if the photos of the bolts I posted are correct.

When I purchased my '69 Z it had a few Day 2 parts installed including headers.  I located a set of date coded, original exhaust manifolds (and smog system) to replace the headers however I used new, commonly available replacement bolts. I have not been able to locate a photo showing close-up head details of assembly line correct SB exhaust manifold bolts and recently came across the photos below.  The head detail on these early bolts is similar to the reproductions however they do differ somewhat. Note a single ring and N stamping which I assume identifies the manufacturer (National?).

 - Has anyone come across these early bolts, are they assembly line correct or incorrect service replacements?

 - Does anyone have close up photos of original, assembly line installed exhaust manifold bolts?

Lloyd, I want to THANK YOU!  Within a couple of days of you posting the pics of this, I was looking for a brass fitting for the pool and saw this fitting sitting in my misc brass drawer!  So now that I know what it is, it is now in my drawers of parts for my SS.  I just have to find that short section of oil line I saved someplace with the rest of the fitting on it Smiley

Glad to hear you located the fitting Kevin. Its a tiny, unique, and to me, important detail.

Thanks for the feedback and photos. Its clear the NOS Idler Arm I located is a later, service replacement and differs somewhat from the factory original.  I located a nice original and installed that instead.
