Thanks Ed.  Although yours is not the greatest example, the font & size seems to be like mine.  Here's mine.  I did poilsh the pad a little but tried not so much as to remove the broach marks.  What's your take on it? 

As far as the Broadcast code, in reading this in the report:
The application code for the master cylinder was stamped on a small pad on the front of the casting, as shown in the sketch below. Note the tag with the broadcast code also shown in the sketch. The broadcast code and the master cylinder application code are not the same; the broadcast code is for the entire assembly and the application code is for the bare master cylinder.
I assumed the entire assembly would have had a different code attached to a bail wire?

So Camaros didn't get a date?  I know John can answer about the Vettes...

Did you check the alignment holes for the frame to body?  Could be the whole frame is pushed back.  Forget what size pin you use but with that much difference I would think it would be obvious by eye.  Let us know what you find & good luck.

Ok, some more questions!
Was told the WT on my 346 was a re-stamp!?!?!  Anyone have any pic's of a original WT stamp so I can compare?  I can post a pic mine too for scrutiny if needed but just wanted to compare for myself.  Also, read Corvette 346's had a date code stamped in the front machined surface where the brake line would attach-is this true for Camaros also?  Nothing mentioned about it in the Brake report and they didn't say anything during judging but thought I'd ask again incase we were all just missing it. :-[  Last thing, what was the broadcast code for 68 power disc and where was it located & how was it affixed to the assembly?
Thanks Guys.

I guess the 67 did not have codes at this point????

I know right??  And nothing before my 12D 68 20 stamp?  I'm amazed!  So what, early early 68's didn't get them either???  Fall E-town car show next weekend, guess I'll have to wear a crappy shirt because I can already see I'll be crawling under every 67 & early 68 I see to see if there's codes  :D  Don't worry, I'll have my camera!!!

Can't say that it would be a good idea to use this on metal parts...just think your trying to remove the rust/paint and get to bare metal and what happens to bare metal when it's wet????

Just my 2c.

Good Luck!!!

Sorry, I mis-spoke, I had done the 2 front corners top and bottom and nothing is there.

Buddy :-[

Buddy, did you check the other corners and all along the seam?  That's the only place it could be since the stamp was like clamp it needed a flat surface to "clamp" on to.  Let us know.

So I guess we need also to get some other 67 guys to chime in here to see what's up with 67 tanks...dated or not and where?

What was it's purpose?  I've never seen or heard of that either!  69 only?

Is that still available?

Probably, but if it follows the current pattern, the GM price will be six times the price of exactly the same U-joint made by Spicer (who makes them for GM); I'd price it at a Spicer dealer before going to GM for it.

If it is it will look NOTHING like the one originall installed in 68.  Cross shaft will most likely be solid with no depression and have a zerk fitting.  I've ordered Precision and AC Delco service replacements and opened both boxes at the counter only to find the EXACT same joint in the box, numbers, stampings, exact. Delco replacement was twice the price.

So nobody knows the GM PN for 68 with M20???????

I looked at my original 67 02B tank and cannot find any date code. Are they supposed to be in the same place as 68 & 69??


I would think so but seems kinda funny NO ONE with a 67 has chimed in so maybe not???  I always look for silly stuff like this when I go over a really nice car just to see how "real" it is but can't say for sure because my passion is 68's so I really don't lock into memory what I see on 67's or 69's unless it's something out of the ordinary.  I do know some of the stamps can be dam near impossible to see, if you really want to see if there's anything there, try pulling a razor blade flat across the corner of the tank a FEW times, blow area off-don't wipe!, and get a flash light and shine/look from all different angles.  If the tank is still in the car a small mirror will help get better angles.  Actually just try the flashlight/mirror trick first, and use the razor blade as last resort!!!
