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.

Early in the 67 year the gas cap actually had "SS 350". My buddy had one. I think when the big block came out, they combined both with just "SS"

The more of these cars I see, the more I realize how lucky I am to have the Z I have, even though it's not any kind of show winner. At least it's real.
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Burgundy '69 Z28 For Sale, Ebay on: January 29, 2015, 04:04:47 PM
So is it a real z?

Does that license plate say Alabama? Gary, aren't you in AL?
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: casting date to assembly gap on: January 28, 2015, 02:50:23 PM
My 6618 DZ block has a casting date of March 31,1969. Assembly code is V0408DZ. Is that typical to have 8 or 9 days gap?

Sounds "normative" to me.

Is there an additive you can add yourself, or does it have to be already in the oil you are using?
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Info for everybody,,,1969 Z28 for sale ? on: January 22, 2015, 10:17:00 AM
My first suspicion at this point is that a past owner, not knowing the VIN was stamped above the oil filter, had the VIN stamped into the pad... I know when I bought my car, and didn't see the VIN stamped (as other cars I'd owned) on the pad, I *wondered* should I stamp it in myself..  I Now am very glad that I didn't do anything so stupid..  Smiley

Of course it's also possible that someone 'new' or forgetful' in the stamping station of the plant stamped it in the 'old' place, and then someone informed him, or he remembered, to stamp it in the 'new' location as well.

Seems like every stamping discussed here anymore is either an exception or some kind of assembly line mistake? Uh huh.

Yeah me too! I guess with only numbers 0 thru 9, it makes it kinda tough to cover 12 months.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ron Pratte collection on: January 17, 2015, 11:43:49 AM
Can somebody please explain this all to me? How is it that what is now acknowledged as being a rebodied Z28 with a Jerry MacNeish  report from 2008 stating it has a "restoration drive train" ever be worth anything close to 148K. Confused..........

Is the VIN of the donor body known by anyone? Other than by whoever did the re-body?

So a 2 door could be followed by a station wagon? I can see once the basic body is welded up on the Fisher end where the rest of the process is mainly a matter of the correct parts coming from the various feeder lines. It's the beginning part where the various sheet metal parts were being lined up and welded that I find amazing, especially when two basically different bodies were one right behind the other. I guess the tooling mainly involved holding the parts to be welded, and there were locating holes/pins in the parts themselves? Or maybe the fixtures were universal, and had locating pins to work with every body to be built?
