I really did measure it center to center.  But I'll go back and do it, again!  .25" isn't that big a difference, so I'll make doubly sure and let you know. Grin
So, are 3" for small block and 3.25" for big block? Huh

Yes, take John's advice, get it running and see what you've got.
If it turns out to be a piece of junk, that's a different story.  And what Rich69rs said is also true in the southeast.
If we are really Camaro lovers, we need to preserve them as best we can. 

Either way, you've got the potential for a great, classic ride! Grin

MMMM ERT,
Was it much trouble (beyond the rust) preparing the roof for painting?
I've know guys would did away with their vinyl, but never heard them talk about sanding the roof to get it ready to paint.
Thanks for the info. Grin

Please vote!!!

I looked my five blade fan over, and you are right, I found no numbers.
I thought sure it would be 3-inch, but it looks like it is 3.25. (center to center)
I do know my motor is not orginal, but it is a 327 and the fan fits fine... and the air works great.
Not sure I really helped you, but good luck
2135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: March 10, 2006, 04:04:15 PM
MMMM ERT, did your car have rust when you removed the vinyl and was it at the bottom of the back window (like most 60s chevys) or elsewhere?

Dab67, what colors? Post us a picture...

Drdave, as you can see my car has a vinyl roof.  The fellow who had it before me put it on and did a great job.  But my trim tag says YY, so its not original.  Still, everybody tells me that Butternut Yellow looks better with black vinyl.  The next time I have it painted, I need to decide whether to take it back to original.  That's the reason for my poll.

I got an answer to the first half of your question a while back:

2137  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Vinyl or Not? on: March 09, 2006, 02:25:50 PM
I've heard pro and con on vinyl roofs for the first generation Camaro.
What do you think?
2138  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Howdy! ...and a Fan blade question on: March 09, 2006, 02:04:36 PM
I do not keep my 68 (with AC) at my home, but I will measure the fan holes center to center over the weedend.  I see from the picture (by the way, great car!) that you have a 350.  Mine is a 327, but after looking at the service and assembly manuals, I THINK they are the same.  (To be honest, I've got a great freind who is a specialty mechanic and he does all my AC and electrical work.  AC is a mystery to me... but much loved in July in NC!)

If this will help in your search, the 68 assembly manual refers from the V-8 page to the RPO K02 page about the fan.  There, it refers to the fan (and it does show a five-blade in the drawing) as "3789562 Blade Asm - Fan" and the clutch as "3916139 Clutch Asm".  Not having my car here, I will have to check if my fan has the same or similar numbers this weekend.  I do not know.

Of course, someone (hint, hint) may see this and go ahead and give you an answer....
2139  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 SS on: March 08, 2006, 10:32:22 PM
Don't give up...
On the downside, Chevy-Camaro.com says its almost impossible to tell about SS without the original motor.  (In other words, you can't easily "back into" an SS just by figuring the options.) Undecided
But give us your whole trim tag and any other numbers and details you can find.  You did not include everything about your trim tag, did you?  Does the exterior code have an X code?  That MIGHT point to a SS possibility... Grin
When one of the CRG members sees this, they will want all your numbers... Huh
2140  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 SS on: March 08, 2006, 07:39:22 PM
Look at this:
http://www.camaros.org/suspen.shtml#MonoVsMultiSprings
According to this report all 69 12 bolt, 350s had multi-leaf.
JohnZ can tell you definitively.
2141  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LT1 Question and For Sale on: March 07, 2006, 02:18:40 PM
I can see your confusion.  Here's a web site that calls a 69 engine an LT1
http://www.nastyz28.com/sbchevy/sblock.html
But then on the same site, it points out the LT1 started in 1970:

 Huh Huh Huh
2142  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 Trunk Mat on: March 06, 2006, 09:11:58 PM
Also how should the mat fit around the gas filler neck? I ask this as I have another mat, also original that is formed in another way for the tank filler? Thanks for any help. Bill D
I'd like to know the answer to Bill's second question, as well.  Original or repo, how should the mat fit around the tank filler?  A picture would be great!
2143  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LT1 Question and For Sale on: March 06, 2006, 03:46:59 PM
But wasn't the LT1 a second generation Camaro motor?

2144  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 Interior RPO options on: March 04, 2006, 06:12:19 PM
Looks like you've got quite a project!

When factory installed, Custom Interior (Z87) did include wood-grained instrument panel trim and molding (can't tell from your picture about wood-grain; the bright molding was Z87, not Special or Standard), bright pedal pads, and assist handle. The Z87 steering wheel was described as "deluxe".  I THINK that would have been N30 (three bar with two horn tabs) not N34 (sport wheel, wood-grained).  I see your glove box is gone, but is there any way to tell if there was a light in the glove box?  That would be another sign of Z87.

I'm still not sure about your 716 seats.  Z87 does have "special seat trim", but I'm not sure what that automatically means from the factory.  Again, I've always assumed that seats was a trim tag issue, not so much RPO.  Could easily be wrong!  When the Mustangs came out with so many options, Camaro had to follow suit.  Most options could still be ordered through the dealer.

Again, I guess you are assuming that your car was not an SS or RS.
2145  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 68 shoulder harness on: March 04, 2006, 04:52:56 PM
Some local law enforcement officers are not clear about this.
My 68 was built in December of 1967 and does not have shoulder belts.
I carry a copy of my state's statute in my car.
