751  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Correct Cowl Induction coil bracket question. on: March 26, 2013, 01:54:21 PM
Is this the correct coil bracket with Cowl Induction? I was looking at the bracket that HBC offers and there is a difference. Can anyone confirm this?

752  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z-28 fender emblems. on: March 26, 2013, 12:55:48 PM
Sorry, my bad. So the fenders were stamped out with no holes and then were drilled along the way during the assembly process correct? I really need to read the assembly process a little better. I must have missed that. Even the AIM has the hole measurements for the number emblems and the Z28 emblems and they do appear different.


 
Nope , holes are different, 100% for sure
753  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z-28 fender emblems. on: March 25, 2013, 01:47:14 PM
The 350 emblems should fit the holes the same as the Z28 emblems. I think the pre drilled holes are the same for all the emblems.

Hey guys...I've Googled CV746C AC Delco PCV valve and found all kinds of info about this valve. I'm a little confused with what is supposed to be what a factory installed PCV should be and look like. I was watching one that was on ebay that I got the impression was what the factory installed one looked like and it was not expensive at all. Heck, it had 2 bids and sold for $21.99. Here's the auction, but the pic isn't that clear.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/CV746C-PCV-VALVE-FITS-CHEVROLET-CAMARO-Z28-1968-69-AND-OTHER-GM-FORD-PRODS-/350743347939?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&nma=true&si=GiA32n%252F3OTLGr%252BsLAMb12TwsWeA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

Please tell me I didn't make a mistake and not bid on this? Anyone have a good clean picture of one for a 69 Z28? How do we even know what is correct if there is so much wrong information out there. At the moment I feel like I need to kick my OWN butt for missing out on this opportunity.

According to the 69 AIM that number  #11 6484699 on page 473 under UPC Z28 A5 doesn't come up anywhere when I Google it. Is that number including the hose and clamps and that is why it's not showing up anywhere? Haven't found anything concrete on the OEM CV746C, just what is called over the counter pcv's. I have also seen part #6484525 as well. Can we somehow clear this up? There seems to be quite a bit of confusion out there.

Your right. I have been researching this the past few days and got all faclemped. As a matter of fact I wrote down 5-DMI-9 for the driver side and 6-DMI-9 for the passenger side on paper so I would have the correct dates when I ordered them. Whew, that would have been a disaster if I ordered the wrong dates.


Gary,

The format should be 'mo'-DMI-'last digit of the year' ...  ie for yours it would be 5-DMI-9     if I understood your intent.    On my mirror, the code is upside down, and located on the bottom of the mirror (mine is an original remote mirror).

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.

I finally got a reply from Paragon and they do install the dated glass in house. I have neither of my originals so I'm going to go for the Paragon's. I hear they are good quality. If I was to locate originals with possibly good dates they would probably be in terrible condition. I'm thinking this is the only way to go, but before I do anything I could use the opinions of you all here. Should I get them? If so, I think a 9 DMI 5 would be good for the driver side but I'm up in the air for what date on the passenger side. I'm thinking after my build date by a couple of weeks, which still would be a June date 9 DMI 6. My car is an early first week 06A built Z.

Well it turns out that I do have a 'Crimped' CV 746 C PCV, just not a purple one. Those originals from what I have seen ARE expensive if you can find them. On the purple color ones there have been a few post on that color being correct and ones that say it isn't. Heck, even HBC has them advertised as being correct for the 69 302, but those are crimped as well. I believe it was also used on the 70, 72-74 Z28's as well, but who knows for sure. Did AC Delco start making them crimped by the 70's?
759  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 owners manual question. on: March 22, 2013, 05:18:29 AM
Hey Gary, you and I were the only ones to bid on that manual. I had put in a bid for another one earlier and the seller sent me an email saying it was a first edition and the back cover was torn and he would understand if I wanted to retract my bid, so I did. That's when I posted my question here. I find it hard to post against someone I met here or T.C. It's a pretty tough decision to make knowing someone else needs that part too, but on the other hand I needed it, so it would have been WAR man. LOL Smiley


Thanks guys. Well I won the third edition, April 1969 manual I bid on on ebay. $12.19 plus $3.70 shipping. Hopefully others will see this post and we can see how many editions were actually printed. Really has me curious now. Maybe we can add this information to CRG for reference?

I was going to bid against you, but I let the end time slip past me..  Smiley

OK Ed. I'll keep you posted.



Yes,  please. It was around that time frame when Donnelly changed their date code from DMI (Donnelly Mirror Inc) to DCA (Donnelly Corporation of America).

Ed

Ed,

Do you want the date even though it is a 1977 mirror? I can sure give it a try. It may take a few days to get around to it though. I may have a few others, but I'll have to dig them out. I just have to remember where I put them.


Yes, rectangular mirrors were still being used in 1977 on a lot of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, etc... models.

Would it be possible to get a high resolution shot of the date code? I'm STILL working on the mirror report and need a few date examples. My email address is in my profile.

Thanks
Ed

Actually that is what I'm trying to find out. I've been to their website and contacted them through their website email but haven't recv'd a reply yet. I need mirrors, so I may as well get them from Paragon. I heard they were the best. I have one mirror the is a terrible repro, no date, and a mirror dated 2 DMI 7. I'm curious about this mirror though. When did GM start using the rectangular mirrors? I don't think its a 1967 date. Maybe 1977? Was GM using this mirror into the 1977 model year? I'll have to google that. I think the bullet mirrors were out by then. Hmmmm..curious.


Google Paragon and search- Exterior Rear View Mirror Glass. They will date code the mirror for you to install in your own base, or I'm sure you can buy a complete assembly with dated glass already installed.

I sent Paragon email from there site but haven't recv'd a reply as of today. Has anyone bought a door mirror from them, if so, is the dated glass installed by them or does the customer have to do it.

Sorry guys haven't found the pic of my 69 SS. I have 'A LOT' of pictures to look through. If I remember correctly the 350/300 in my SS was 4 bolt but it had the 441 heads and q-jet carb. No camel humps.
