Nothing new about this guy. There are many threads on NastyZ28 about him. Every so often he changes his screen name on ebay. He is especially into faking the tach and gauge clusters (rescreening tachs etc) as well as the carb heat shields. A long time scam artist.

Be careful. Looks like this guy has several HiPo engines for sale. There was a guy in TN by the name of "Al" or "Big Al" that was making fake tags and stamps on engines, and doing a good job.
Not saying this IS the same guy, just be careful and make sure it is not.

I have heard that it is acceptible to have a corvette with a stamped engine pad, which seems different that the camaro world if correct.

Also like I posted on the TC site, in every instance I know of, the report comes a few weeks after Jerry has been out and inspected. He takes the pics, documentation and numbers back to his place and sends you the final report. In the five or six cars around here that Jerry has certified, I have not seen the report for a few weeks.

This FACT, along with the KW report being a bullet list checked off by I assume KW, seems to support Jerry's answer. Like most of the people here agree, I think some are trying to take the focus off of an obviously rebodied car, and place it at Jerrys feet.

I see this as an instance of Jerry once again trying to be accomidating(sp), and now getting burned for it.

Let's face it, I am nowhere near an expert, and even I can see that the pad is a restamp. Does anyone REALLY think that Jerry would have missed that?

That can only leave you with either one of two conclusions.

Jerry's got a tough job.  He's walking a fine line trying to make a living but some of his customers don't really want to hear the truth.

I spent $800 just in fuel for the 1200 mile round trip.  Hotels, food and entry, more $$$$.  Was a costly weekend for CHP.

I'm sure you'll make it up when you come down south! I still need the smog setup for the L78 Smiley
It's always easy to look back and say "I should have", but I would encourage you to hang on to Old Reliable till the market corrects. Unless of course I hit the lotto next week.

Also, in the pre X code cars, there was the LM1 RPO, which can have all of the same signs of a small block ss (even down to the chrome air cleaner lid!), other than the hood springs, ss hood and 300 hp engine. The LM1 suffix codes were "H" codes as well, so make sure that you are careful.

Although, of course

I just bought some floor pans from Belair Bob, Bob shipped the same day, and packaged them well. Thumbs Up! I plan on using him again, also it helps that he is an active member at camaros.net, so I would imagine that he wants to keep his reputation intact.

Update, 

Rich Pern at camaros.net gave the suggestion of low light and take digital with flash so I tried that and it did work.  I also have what appears to be a larger B or maybe even a larger 3 to the left of the x3 marking.  any idea what this is or am I just seeing things.  will try to post a couple of these pics so you may be able to see what I am talking about.

thanks, Bill.

Congrats Bill, just passing on what others taught me. One LM1 car I had, had a X1 Grn on the back bulkhead. It was a green interior car. Seems like the interior color, or first few letters was commonly on the rear bulkhead.

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Starter Motor Numbers on: October 07, 2007, 09:34:03 PM
Dave,
That is one I expected. Smiley  What's the date on the starter?

Rich,
I'd like to note Casey's starter in the db. Do I have data on that car?

Thanks guys!

L48 TH350 - 1108420 is one that I've confirmed and is a little surprising in light of the TSB (posted above). The earliest car I have data on is a 12A, so maybe the earlier cars got the 1108361 and they changed to the 1108420 (though the TSB never states they made a production usage change).


I usually pass everything on to you guys, so I think so, but to be thorough I'll look his info up and resend, it was/is a white (originally frost green) RS TH350 LM1 car. He had it for sale about a year ago. He had to listed on camaros.net.

I just had him over to the house and we pulled the front cap off so he can start the resto on the subframe. Most everything was/is original. Any other numbers that you want while I am over there?

Rich

Hi Jerry,

Here is some of the first info that I have gathered.

LM1's

1. Original Starter -Casey's car, the LM1 you certified here, TH350 car, Date 8L1, 1108361

2. N541594 Non Original Starter, flywheel has 168 teeth, TH350

3. N505852 Non Original Starter, flywheel has 168 teeth, TH350

4. N549197 MC1, looking for starter, not at John's so it must be here. Will look after I get back from the show.
