Depends on the year and the model.....
Normally pretty close.
3167  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 302 Block ? on: November 30, 2005, 12:59:48 AM
BG isn't a good 69 axle code. BS? But that axle isn't original to either the tag or the VIN. Is it a 10 or 12 bolt?

The picture of the pad will help. And the VIN by the oil filter is the key evidence that's missing. It is hard to see in the car.....

The N in the trans code should be a number. No VIN stamped near that code?
3168  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 302 Block ? on: November 29, 2005, 04:41:46 PM
At least it appears the VIN is on the original car.
VIN is from Sept 69, tag is Dec 68. The trim tag came off of a different car.

Now here's the twist. That engine could be original to the VIN.
Harder to prove without the trim tag, but....
Three things first: get me a pic of the pad and I'll take a look at it.
Is there a VIN by the oil filter?
What's the axle code? http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#RearAxleNumbers
3169  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 302 Block ? on: November 29, 2005, 03:03:13 AM
Ruh-roh.
Block doesn't match the tag which doesn't match the VIN.
That's not good. One of the tags has been swapped. Can you find the partial VIN (see http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#PartialVIN)?
Major red flag..... Sad

No, this is an early car. Nov of 68. Still had another month left of 327 production.
Yup, FL is the correct code.

Pretty unusual to find the broadcast sheet inside the car. Congrats!

Thanks!
Kurt

Just swap in new calipers and put in some good pads and you'll be set.
Unless you change the swept surface significantly, an aftermarket setup will just cost $$ and not brake any better than the factory setup.
3172  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 700R4 conversion in a '68 on: November 26, 2005, 08:12:48 PM
To answer Kevin's question, the ratios are different:
Trans       1st    2nd  3rd  4th
TH350    2.52   1.52   1   N/A
TH400    2.48   1.48   1   N/A
2004R     2.74   1.57   1   0.67
700R4     3.06   1.63   1   0.7

2004R has a better 1-2 (and 2-3) ratio change. That's a big 1-2 drop with the 700R4.

I'd go with the 2004R personally.....
3173  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Buick nut needs help with newly purchased 69 camaro on: November 26, 2005, 08:00:53 PM
With the axle date of Dec 7 (casting date is not relevant to this question), it's too late for that car. Really close, but not close enough. Smiley
What's the VIN and the engine and trans codes?

There's also likely to be a broadcast sheet on top of the gas tank........

Thanks!
3174  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 68 LOS build sheets on: November 25, 2005, 09:48:12 PM
Zero that I'm aware of....

Not too hard to loosen it a little and peak on top of the tank via the rear wheelwell.
3175  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 AM FM radio options on: November 25, 2005, 09:44:40 PM
YYWW.
49th week of 74 is how I'd decode that.
3176  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Spiral Shocks on: November 25, 2005, 12:33:08 PM
Geesum. I even double checked before I posted that!
Fixed it, it's now shock codes. Spring codes aren't as straightforward since they depend on weight.
Thanks Mark!
3177  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Spiral Shocks on: November 25, 2005, 02:17:15 AM
Thanks!

Here's a quickie list of 68 shock broadcast codes:
Fronts: TG - L6 & LF7,   PS - L35,   PW - L30/M20 & L35
Rears: TM - L6 & LF7,   TN - L35,   UM - LF7w/F41,   UN - L30/M20, L48, L35, L78, Z28

That list of the front codes is missing several models of cars. Sad
3178  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 AM FM radio options on: November 25, 2005, 02:04:31 AM
What's the date code under the DS-501 transistor?
3179  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Black Firewall Paint on: November 25, 2005, 02:00:58 AM
Not sure on 68 but in 67 LOS didn't use hidden VIN's. I beleive that 68 didn't either.

Buddy
That would be incorrect. I have pics of partial VINs from both 67 & 68 LOS cars.
3180  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: two tone paint on: November 25, 2005, 01:51:45 AM
Available on any car.
Post your VIN, cowl tag, and axle code and we might be able to tell what it is.
