Gary. A few different keys? Heck, I've been online all morning entering any key word remotely resembling a GM starter.  I'm looking at this starter for the parts. I made an offer of $40.00 just for the nose piece, bracket and stud but was refused.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/320787669893?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_427wt_806


This one too.

I really don't want to buy the whole da*n thing but it looks like I may have to if I can't just find the housing. Your right there are millions of these starters out there somewhere. I was hoping someone here would help me out and sell me one. Maybe they aren't as easy to find.

There are 2 more I emailed about for front shots of the housing as well. Just waiting hear back.

Well...I struck out again. Just got the dreaded "Unfurtunately we cannot fill your order because the part is DISCONTINUED" email...AGAIN. Stay tuned for the next episode of "The Long Lost Starter Housing". I'm gonna fnd one...someone has to have a few of these laying around and don't know it.

Hey Kev, I went back to look at the pics on TC forum and realized what you mean. Tims pic and the starter on the left of the 3 starter housings I posted, the one with the open tip, have a curved edge at the flywheel opening and the ones I post here on CRG hace a straight edge in the opening. You see what I'm saying. Maybe I'll get lucky and get the correct housing in. Maybe today or tomorrow.

Hi Kev. I'm not exactly sure which one of the housings I bought, there was no picture. Hopefully it will be like Tims pic. I'm not following you...if I am OK with the 1968122, than  we can talk more. The 1st pic shows the void? Are you referrencing the pics on my TC post?


Gary, if you are OK with that 1968122, then we can talk more.  The 1st pic shows the void (right by the flywheel hole) in the casting that mine has. I think that is a feature of the later starter noses.  Tim's pic was solid in that spot.

6667ss138. I sent you a PM. Here are some pics of the jack. 1 overall and 1 of the date on the rivet.

Not sure about the raw aluminum, but the early covers aren't supposed to be shiney like the new ones GM sells. So far there are several different methods used to finish them. One member here, LYNN was telling me he used a certain paint and then put them in the oven at 400 degrees.


Yeah. I'm a Harley addict too. Mine is an 81 FXS Lowrider 1340 with the all black wrinkle finish engine. Lowered 2 inches on the swing arm, 5 gal fatbobs, has the over and under speedo and tach dash and gauges on the tank, duck tail fender, wide glide forward controls, but still use the narrowglide front end with wide glide handlebars for the narrow front . It's all black front to back. I call it Black Bart. It's getting to my knees though its so low., but it's fun to drive. I love the 4 speed's and you can't beat that shovelhead sound. I did a retrofit 91 softail CV carb and woke it right up. The original Kehein was sloppy as heck. Better throttle responce as well.



Hi Dave. It's a process things like aluminum intakes, distributor housings and the Z28 valve covers are put through to restore the original dull like finish. Not exactly sure of what is done, but I have heard there is a tumbler of sorts involved. I'm curious myself. I have a set of non drippers I want to get done soon.


Hey Gary

so the factory valve covers were raw aluminum with a dull/matte finish, no coating/paint?

and i see from your post about the front plate bracket we have something else in common I have a 79 FLT and also a Big Bear Chopper Merc with 44* and 18" over springer

Thanks
Dave

I was afraid of that. It is nice, too. Well, I need to see if this guy will exchange it. Thanks Kurt.



It's a little late for your car, but possible. The jack would be one of the last things into the car and your car was finished about 6/6 or 6/7.  If it's a nice jack and a good price, I'd probably keep it....

473  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Jack date question on: May 06, 2013, 09:41:27 PM
Hi Ed. 653104 is the VIN. Any idea what was used for sleeves on these? I can't narrow it down. I have seen the really long ones that cover the hole mast and I have seen the little short ones too. If they are short it's only 2 of them. Is either correct?

I think 9E would be more realistic.

Not necessarily. Jacks were installed in EVERY car so they were high usage. Dates are usually pretty close to the cars assembly date. Also, 06A date doesn't necessarily mean an "early" June car. What's your VIN?

Ed

I'm thinking that too, but don't want to rush into changing it just yet. Need to see what others have to say. I've been looking all day online about jacks and it's amazing how many cars are missing jacks.



I think 9E would be more realistic.
475  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Battery Side post or top question on: May 06, 2013, 09:35:22 PM
Hey Pace. When I spoke to the dealer today about the battery I asked about cables for the 69 Camaro also, but no dice. Do you an idea what to get if I can get them local?


You can go with current GM cables as well.
476  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Front license plate bracket question. on: May 06, 2013, 06:28:04 PM
Kind of reminds me of the finish on my 81 FXS Lowrider. The black wrinkle on the side covers looks very similar,  just not as much texture.



Good deal!
The brackets were dipped which likely accounts for the finish you see.

sorry if this has been discussed but, what's reskinned? is it a finish or chemical process? can someone post a pic?

Hey guys I got the front license plate bracket in today. It has the AAc stamp on it and the paint is real heavy on it, and not smooth. Nice heavy steel too.
479  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Non dripper valve cover questions. on: May 06, 2013, 04:24:35 PM
Hi Mark, I sent you a PM.


FWIW - I have a set of NOS polished ones with the drippers that I had Jerry refinish for me.  They now look like the original '69 dull finish die cast covers but they DO have drippers for better rocker arm lubrication. GM redesigned them for a reason.

-Mark.
480  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Jack date question on: May 06, 2013, 10:51:46 AM
Would an 06A early June car have a 9E jack or a 9F jack? I just bought what was supposed to be a 9E but it is a 9F and I don't know if I should keep it or return it.

Thanks guys.
