LA built a bunch of 67 L78's. They are out there, including a few very original cars.

I had confirmed that SF in MI is not 'agreed value' (as JohnZ also states). Then I ran across someone in IL that had SF with agreed value. Confirmed it was an agreed value policy. Asked my agent and he dug and confirmed that it was an agreed value policy in IL and I still couldn't get it in MI.
2763  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Dual Fuel Lines on: March 16, 2007, 09:43:23 PM
mark you say that It's much more likely that the engine is not original than to find an L35 with a single fuel line.
it only takes 20 minutes to take the return line out maybe some one didn't like to cap the line,
maybe  they wanted a good job, i find your answer a little hard to believe you cant make that statement when you didnt even take the fact that it had mods done to it
I agree with Mark. I've looked at hundreds of cars and unless the car was restored, the fuel lines are one component that is *almost* never changed. He didn't say it was absolute, but just likely.

A differential is a gear driven adding device. 1 output rev of both tires = (ratio) rev of input.  Only 1 side turning, only 1/2 of (ratio) input rev. 2 revs of 1 wheel = (ratio) rev of input.
Pretty need when you get into the gear theory behind it.

The ratio does show up here. Smiley

Different year, different plant, different production usage patterns. Smiley

Thanks! That looks a lot better!
2766  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 LM1 could this be one on: March 16, 2007, 03:23:25 AM
Actually, that's a long time between the axle and a body in that timeframe. Could it be PY1201G1?
Unusual if it is PY1101G1, but with that code and application, I highly suspect that it is original.
2767  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Big block with auto. on: March 15, 2007, 03:46:18 PM
Though my car is pretty original, that area of the car has been changed and the kickdown was missing. So no help, sorry.

In certain states, State Farm offers a true 'Agreed Value' policy, IL being one of them.
I pursued this, it is not offered in MI.

I have Hagerty. A friend got hit and Hagerty paid, no hassles.

2770  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Two Black 1969 Z28s! on: March 12, 2007, 11:53:19 PM
There's 23 black 69 Z's in the db.  Doubtless there's more out there, I know there's several that I've seen but not entered.
2771  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Warranty Engines on: March 12, 2007, 10:29:05 PM
Make this note :
        "In addition to these service only assemblies, any current production passenger engine assemblies that are ordered by the Parts and Accessories Department for service usage must have a service identification number".
         I'm going to jump to a conclusion here. If they ordered an engine for a specific application, say an L-34 350hp/396 engine for a 1968 Camaro it would be stamped "T0309XX" and ALSO a "CEx50001" (with X being the year it was ordered in). That's a lot to stamp on that small pad. But that's what the instructions say they have to do to COMPLETE engine assemblies (as opposed to partial assemblies or universels). 

After doing some more research and talking to Al Grenning (Corvette engine guru), I believe that complete engine assemblies that were used for service were only stamped with the CE code. Fran's supposition had a solid premise, but no CE blocks have ever been found that have an engine assembly stamp on them, either in a Camaro, Corvette, or out of a car.
Which means the engine plant would have known that those assemblies were destined for service and did not stamp an assembly code on them.
That also means there's no easy way to distinguish between a CE short block and a CE engine assembly. Heads and other components would be dated for the block, if those components are still on the block.

Are the totals for engine production by engine assembly part # or by application code? Do any of the sheets indicate where the assemblies were destined (i.e. assembly plant or service)?

He post here,, and I replied. Smiley
Nothing on that VIN.
2773  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New Decode pages on: March 11, 2007, 02:03:55 AM
Rich did most of the work by generating the decode page originally. And the group has continued to update the pages as time went by. So there's a lot of people who have had input into those pages.

I'm an editor at heart. It was nice to have a solid foundation of info to start with. Smiley

Rich did an amazing job of implementing the change; there was a lot of things on the site that needed to change to make it work right.

Please eliminate the insults from your posts. We welcome your knowledge and information here, but just because everyone doesn't immediately agree does not mean we need a war of words.
This is a discussion board that holds itself to a higher standard. Stick to the facts and you will make you point much more effectively.

I have never seen a CE stamp and a production stamp (T1012xx) on the same block, but that's not to say it couldn't happen on a service block.
I've seen several CE8xxxx blocks, confiming it was implemented for 68 model year.

But, the data shows that they modified the CE stamp procedure.
CE blocks have CE9B46015, CE0A965 0 9,  and CE72 502 stamped on them. Those do not follow the procedure that is outlined.

Here's a pic of that last stamp:
2775  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / New Decode pages on: March 10, 2007, 02:04:22 PM
The general Decode page received a major revision and I split apart the drivetrain info into a new Drivetrain page, with a lot of pictures and which includes all the 67-69 axle codes.
This change to the pages also changed the header links that are at the top of the pages.

Let us know if you find any errant links or errors in the pages.
