Huh Hmmm?

627 cap is seen here, still around as JohnZ said.  Looks like your #2 I believe.

Cap #1 is the factory assembly line original. Cap #2 is your every day seen cap.

Reviving an old thread relating to a question about assembly line correct valve stems and CAPS.  Are either of these examples (#1 or #2) assembly line correct for a '69 Z?  As shown in the photos, #1 has fine ridges that extend onto the crown of the cap, a less pronounced tip and proud base.  #2 is a more commonly seen style with the Dill name in capital letters moulded into the crown, wider, further spaced, flatter ridges and a taller tip with a concave center and a level base rim.

Nice Kevin, this looks like the set that was offered by Wayne (Hotrodsled) from his 9,300 original mile 1969 Nova.
94  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Cowl Hood Relay - Factory Original with Rivet? on: May 19, 2013, 08:27:43 PM
I've come across a used cowl hood relay (firewall mounted) and am trying to determine if it is assembly line correct. The relay on my factory installed cowl hood car is the same except without the rivet circled in red. Does anyone with a factory original cowl hood car have a relay with the rivet or is this a non-correct later service replacement?

Here are the shims I located, both are identical except supplier markings. They are from a very original 6cyl '69 Camaro:

Good info, thanks everyone!

lloyd, do you need pics?

Thanks Kevin, I have since located a few with the Rocket symbol.

Very helpful, thanks Kevin.

I didn't mean these were factory body shims. These are aftermarket body shims is what I meant or at least that's what I used in the shop for years. No the original shims were not zinc. Sorry for the confusion but he did say he bought them at a parts house so I took it for granted he understood they sold him body shims instead of front end alignment shims. Maybe these are alignment shims that they use now. I've been out of the business 20 years.

For clarity the bright zinc shims in the photo at the top of this thread are currently being marketed by the parts houses as factory correct control arm alignment shims for 67/8/9 Camaros...I didn't purchase them.

Just came across this, seems to be the same style jack sleeve in the photo with the Endura jack however the part number decodes to an Oldsmobile item.  Think I've answered my own post.

Crickets...anyone?
102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Control Arm Alignment Shims on: April 05, 2013, 10:30:23 AM
I found an exact set on eBay....changed-out my rusty ones. 

I like rusty ones!
103  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Control Arm Alignment Shims on: April 02, 2013, 11:24:12 AM
Working on a few engine compartment and suspension details and I've not been able to locate a reference for the correct, factory installed, control arm alignment shims used on Norwood built '69 Camaros.  The parts houses sell the style of shim in the first photo below in bright zinc with a hole in the top and the size ( 1/32" or 1/16" ) stamped on one side, as correct for all 1967-1969 Camaros. The second photo is of a shim that I pulled out of a '69 that I can't say was original to the car however it shows significant age. It has the same general shape however lacks the hole and has no size stamping.  Would appreciate some help to identify the factory correct version(s).

Below is a photo from a current eBay listing for a very nice, original, late production (9J, 1969) bumper jack set from a survivor '69 Camaro with a factory installed endura bumper. I have not previously seen the rather long, rubber lug wrench retaining sleeve and was interested to know if this is orginal, period aftermarket, a late 1969 production item or even unique to the endura bumper option? The more typical retainer straps (2 required) I have seen (and discussed in another related CRG tread http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1451.0 are shown in the second photo

I think I do, but not sure. If I do it's burried somewhere. Do you have a spare?

$12...that's a deal, nice ones usually trade on eBay for 3x-5x that price, well done. Do you have the poly bag for it, an important detail.

 

Gary, I don't have a spare poly bag but there's a really nice one on eBay, item # 400442437592 .
