Thanks Ed. I can't remember if I posted anything on this years ago when I first acquired it or if Kurt did when I sent him these pics. Not that it will make any difference anyway. It seems like this block has the plague. I may have to use it for something else.

I've had this block for a while now and not sure if I added it to the orphans forums so here it is. Tried to sell it several times but I get some varying opinions.

Here is a link to some other info and pics on it...http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=4518.0

Hey guys, here is a link for the pics of the LL side post battery cables I bought. This will take you to my post on the Yenko site. Just scroll down a little and you'll see them.

Great presentation. It's great to see these parts viewed in this manner so we can choose whether to look for original or buy reproductions site unseen. Unless you have an original part to compare with, it is often hard to comparison shop.

Hey guys. I finally got the side post battery cables I ordered form Lectric Limited if anyone wants to check them out.

Here's a  link to the Yenko site post I have.

I heard that the 'Glyptal' paint is expensive. The  '74 350 block I'm currently using in my Z isn't painted but the valley has been smoothed out really nice. It's been a few years since I was in there but I know the sides are done for sure just not sure about the bottom part.

Hey Dave, have you been to the Yenko site? Here is something you may be interested in if you haven't seen them yet.

Dave, What Gary said. I remember reading in a HOT ROD mag back in the early 70's that had an article in it about prepping a block for faster oil flow back to the pan and those 4 drain back corners were smoothed out and screens were epoxied in to catch debris. If I remember correctly there was something about smoothing out the valley walls all they way around too. As a matter of fact the 350 LT1 spec engine in my Z right now has had the valley smoothed out. I'm assuming done by the previous owner.
579  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Front license plate bracket question. on: May 25, 2013, 06:58:28 PM
Hey Dave, like Mike says what is considered late? Did you ever get my PM saying I found a set of spark plug wire shields? Just wanted to make sure your still not looking for them.



The ACC on the front tag bracket was on later production. Mostly all front tag brackets have a "C" stamping on either side of the lower mounting tabs, where it bolts to the valance. The same goes for the rear tag holders. The earlier holders have the 608 part number towards the center and the later has it up higher with the ACC stamping also.
580  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Radio delete cover screws question. on: May 25, 2013, 06:54:41 PM
Anyone have a source for that hardware? I was looking at the AMK website and the numbers in the 69 AIM don't show up. UPC 1 B3 page 34. Number 6 on the list 9427601 up top. I picked up a delete plate and don't want to just screw anything in there.
581  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Sticker Kit on: May 24, 2013, 10:59:05 AM
Gary, What you have should be fine. JM's book indicates rear leaf springs tag is BM silver paper with black letters. Front springs YF is light blue paper with dark blue letters and EY and YH is light blue paper with black letters.


Can't tell the letter colors from the pic on your YF tags are those dark blue or black?
582  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: new guy intro on: May 23, 2013, 08:59:35 PM
Yeah, they were there when I bought the car, it's a GM hood too. I removed the pins and put a rubber cover over the holes and put the shields back on so water don't get into the hood there. I was thinking of using the hood pin kit that the 70 Chevelles use. I kind of like that look with the coated lanyards.
583  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 22, 2013, 10:37:33 PM
Sounds like a plan Dave. I need to sell this block so I can afford a $1500.00 alternator for my Z. There's a  9 E 23 837 being offered on another site but man you can't catch a break in this hobby the way these prices are. The average schmuck doesn't have a chance.



Hey Gary,

just been looking for something closer to my build date, seller asked me to make him an offer, i did, not sure if he will accept, so your not off the hook yet, lol sorry for dragging this on.

i also found another motor built two weeks before my car.

right now waiting on the above motor, it might have some interesting history, i'll share after purchase or i pass.

was told uship is very reasonable and easy.

Thanks
Dave

All these pics and information is just fantastic. First chance I get I gotta pull the SR carb and compare the differences. I'm curious about the base plate differences.
585  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 22, 2013, 09:22:38 PM
Dave, good for you man. Hope it is A OK. I was wondering how to get mine to you in California if you bought it, but now I don't have to worry about it. I still need somebody to buy mine though.



will work on getting more pics of vin, but think i will move forward with purchase, thanks guys
