I have a fan clutch with a stamp on the water pump flange that reads B0372SC. I'm having trouble decoding it using the julian method. I picked it up used because it had a nice looking fan on it so its not real important. Thanks for the help.

You know, my L48 car has been making a "ticking sound" around the right side rear wheel area since I've owned it. I always thought it was some sort of exhaust interference or leak. I'll have to check out this TSB and see if I can fix it. That would be wonderful!

That was the first time I was able to take any cars to Camaro Nationals. It was great for me because I live 20 miles from Frederick. I had a great time, saw some really cool cars and met some great people. It would be nice to figure out how to attract more of the "high end", cars though. I understand Jerry M became ill during the whole event so we missed his participation. I hope he's doing ok. I look forward to doing it again next year.

Hi Marty, I can send you some pics of it if you want.

Yes, the other block is a Tonawanda. Strange though, looks like the cast date is I 26 8 and the assembly is T0212HN.

Chris,
I know the one in my 12B SS is, I'm 99% sure the other one is too but I'll check tomorrow.

My late November (68) built L48 is a 388 block. I also have a L48 block from a 69 full size wagon that is a 388 2 bolt main.

Paul, That wheel on Ebay has the narrow 1" slots. I have 1 of those I'm going to use as a temporary 4th wheel untill I find one more with the 1 1/8" wide slots. Truth is, probably won't be able to tell the difference once the trim ring is on but I'm just being picky.  Smiley Thanks for lookin!

I need one more K19 DF wheel with the 1 1/8 wide slots. Just one! I aquired three of them over the past 2 years for an average of $90 each. I like the 69 dated replacements because the prices are usually reasonable and I'm not putting them on a numbers Z28. Anyone got one of these with the wide slots they can part with? Thanks!

177  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Rear leaf springs on: February 24, 2011, 07:40:59 PM
Hello all, I'm getting ready to change the rear axle in my 68 from a 10 bolt mono to a 12 bolt multi leaf. My question is, has anyone had any experience with the reproduction leaf springs on the market? There seems to be a few options ranging from the cheap 5 leaf replacement to the "correct" 4 and 5 leaf repros. I'm not building a show winner but I like my car to drive great and look great. Ideally, the 4 leaf correct repro would be my preference but, are they worth the extra money? Are the cheaper replacements decent and consistant? Anyone ever use the Eaton Detroit springs? I really drive the car so handling is important(maybe like a stock Z). I like the stock ride height too.
Thanks for any input.

I bought a complete 4-piston conversion kit from The Right Stuff for my 68 RS and I got their "correct" Delco stamped booster. I've had it over two years and it looks great and works fine. I drive the car often and sometimes I have to leave it outside. I have never tried to verify its correctness but im very happy with it. Oh, the master cylinder and the hold-off valve were garbage.

179  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: factory 1969 12 bolt pinion angle on: December 04, 2010, 09:24:16 AM
Also consider the mounting point on the leaf spring. I think when the axle is mounted on the springs, it actually puts the pinion closer to level when the perches are welded with the pinion up about 6*. So, the down position would seem wrong to me. When power is applied to the axle, it tends to rotate so the pinion moves up.

I did a 134a changeover on a 69 a few years back and it works fine. I flushed ALL components with an A/C flush chemical first to remove ALL the old refrigerant oil. The older R12 refrigerant oils are not compatible with 134a. I replaced the receiver dryer, then added the right amount of 134a compatible oil to all the components, reassembled with new o-rings. The biggest problem I ran into was finding a working POA valve, which had nothing to do with the change to 134a. It still works great but It'll never blow as cold as an original working R12 system.
