Except that a clutch fan on an SS-350 would much more likely to be original equipment on a HD cooling car.
If I saw a clutch fan on a standard cooling car - I would be more suspect to the originality.

My 69 SS-350 has HD cooling with an original 7 blade clutch fan. I believe it to be completely original to the car.

Kurt, remember you pointed that out to me when i first got my car - I did not originally believe a clutch fan was possible?
After close examination of the dates on Radiator, fan clutch, and fan blades - I was convinced.

Yes - They make both sides - said they make them with the flats as original, and also with no flats for better flow.

5 blade Camaro fans have steel blades.
The 4 blade fans don't really have "blades" - the unit is steel stamped in two parts and riveted together.

So from reading the article a 69 pace car without AC and with a 350 should have a 4 blade fan and not a clutch fan?

Unless the HD cooling option was ordered - there were a good number of SS350 cars that had a clutch fan.
Check your radiator code before assuming...

A friend sent me a few pictures of an original NOS 1967 exhaust tip.
He is now making his repro tips exactly the same.

LOL - - That looks like it could have put out a fire...
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hood insulation on: April 03, 2012, 09:35:51 PM
I always assumed it was fire suppression - -if an engine fire began the insulator would melt and smother the flames

No reason at all.  Lots of versions of those Rad caps.
AC on one side - AC on the other side - Sometimes they even forgot a circle or two.
Sometimes the logos are upside down or angled - Really it was just a mass produced item with a lot of different variations.

Nice cap John - -I love the deep stampings on a gently used original...
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original radiator cap? on: April 01, 2012, 09:16:26 AM
No - the earlier cap had a hollow rivet - there may have been some overlap in 68 but typically the flat rivet is 69 and later.
see 67 cap below...

A lot of power boaters like to use 6cyls because they can be mounted close together, Two 6 Cyl's take just about the same space as a V8.
You get 12 for the space of 8...

put a craigslist ad - -can't hurt?
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original radiator cap? on: March 25, 2012, 05:24:22 AM
Yes - That is an original cap. The rivet is perfectly correct for that month.
The hole was probably drilled by someone who attached a safety cord?

Nice cap - -should clean up very easily....
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 772 fan on: March 24, 2012, 12:17:15 PM
2 versions of that fan were produced. One shows the 3947772 part number and a date.
The other version which was a lot more common has no date or part number.

3 months prior to build date would be acceptable.
