I think Jimmy V said his car is a pre X code, and has it behind the seat.

Here's my crayon mark behind the seat; Oct 68 build 10B; VIN 516355. For a long time I too was under the impression that only cars with the X code on the trim tag had the mark behind the seat. Now I believe it was done from the start of production. The mark supposedly identified the build to line workers even before the trim tag was attached to the body.

I've heard wheels were changed from AD to YH as a result of the availability of the 4 wheel disc brake option. When did that option begin? My impression has been around Jan 69, and also that's about the time the wheels changed over. How long would it have taken for a YH wheel with a 17 Dec manufacture date to make it to the assembly line? The assembly plant would also have to be notified so that the broadcast sheet could be revised from AD to YH correct? Any broadcast sheets out there from this time frame?

I second that on the X code behind the seat. My Oct 68 build Z has it. If it was originally red with white vinyl, the stripes would be white. just so happens to be what my Z is, red with white stripes and white vinyl. I've not seen another 69 Z this combination. Mine's also RS.

Even if it is a Z/28 acquiring every date-code correct part will take years and a lot of cash. Very few Z/28s produced early in the model year.



When did Z/28 production begin to ramp up?

Thanks for the ideas. Will investigate further.

I've recently had my brakes requiring stiff pedal pressure from my foot. 69 Camaro with front discs. At first I suspected that my calipers were frozen, but I also have a hissing noise which seems to be at the carb throttle bores. I can hear it when the air cleaner is on, but it is noticeably louder when I remove the air cleaner. It been suggested that my brake booster might be bad? Hoe would one check the booster?

I'm assuming the master cylinders were supplied for Norwood or LA from the same source?

I have observed VIN's in the 5525xx range with 11D Tags.

So Heartbeat is only overpriced by $100!!  Cheesy
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: BV Water Pump Pulley on: February 12, 2015, 09:19:26 AM
Wish I had a spare 456, I'd trade for that 842. Both are valued about the same.

Yes, I see Heartbeat City is asking $450 for a used 456. The clutch fan on my car is dated Dec 1977, which makes me guess that the 824 pulley was still available as a service part in early 1978?

What is the difference between The 842BV and DV?

Here's a DV pulley on my 69 Z. Apparently a service replacement. According to Jerry M's book, either one could be original. Different supplier?

On a Z? Should that not be a 3932456? I never knew why the DV either. There is something IIR, on Yenko site. Will have to do some digging.

Yes, apparently original replaced with this one. Not quite sure why a pulley would need replacement? I know the water pump and clutch fan were replaced as well, so I'm assuming it all happened together.
