Pacecarjeff, is it possible that the "kinda black - had a sloppy spray gun waved at it" metal ones you have seen, may have been rebuilt power steering pumps that the rebuilder then threw a flash of black over to make it look nice, without worrying about any overspray that went on the cap?
317  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: XCO build numbers on: May 15, 2006, 04:21:31 AM
Hi Rich, so if we take out those 3 factories, which according to 'how many' in the general page on crg were ckd or skd kits, not fully US assembled and without US vin and trim tag, then the number of non-canadian fully built xco's with US vin and trim tag must have been quite small.

I guess I should put my hand up here and explain why I'm interested in this topic. I'm actually in Australia and my 68 L34 is one of those fully built non-canadian xco's.
I have the xco tag that came with the car, it quotes the xco number, the cars vin number and the destination as General Motors, Sydney.
It's a stamped tag with the details in hand written pen. I found it on the floor pan under the LH front carpet [decades ago now!  Smiley ]
This car may be one of only a handful that were fully built xco's to Australia. I'm assuming it must have been a fully built xco as it has a US vin and trim tag.

I can post a pic of the xco tag if your interested.

There was a 'special' 3 speed [hd] rpo M13 available for L35 396ci and L48 350ci.

You could cross check you car with rpo Z27 [required with M13] to see if you have all those items as well.

Seat seperator for console!! Get-outta-here!! I wonder how many sleepless nights he/she spent dreaming up that one!!   Cheesy

One trick I use to thwart the robots that dream up these crypto-acronyms, is to think of other bits that bolt to or form part of the bit I'm looking for, that hopefully have a description that more closely relates to the part and that can lead me to the correct group.

Hi, just wondering how many fully built non-Canadian xco 68 Camaro's rolled off the production line? even an estimate.

Sometimes that book is difficult to read. Or maybe I should say, difficult to decypher!

lol! tell me about it! I think there must be a special school of cryptography that the writers of such manuals attend   Cheesy

The problem is, I can't seem to find a pulley number for the 396/325 and 396/350 with A/C AND Powerglide!

powerglide [M35] was not available with 396 or Z28
323  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 12, 2006, 06:57:52 AM
Thanks for that. Is it a metal top painted black in your pic?
Is that how they came originally, metal painted black?
324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 hex c/d B & S keys on: May 12, 2006, 05:39:29 AM
Ebay, but beware, there's one seller [operating two different accounts] who claims NOS, but when asked does say that both sides are stamped the same - GM both sides.

The AIM is a little confusing for L78 and AIR equipment. On sheet L78/A2 under the upc 6 list, it quotes '6T - air compressor'. The asterix quotes 'Assembles same as RPO L35'
But on sheet A1 the engine illustration is without a pump, but on sheet A5 there is part of a pump drawn.   Undecided]

I'm sure your right though, L78 is exc. AIR?
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 hex c/d B & S keys on: May 11, 2006, 10:16:37 AM
Found these, listed as NOS. Not bad looking even if they're not.
Opinions?

328  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Light monitoring system rpo U46 on: May 10, 2006, 05:23:42 AM
Ok got that thanks, though in my book it quotes 911242 for the standard lamp asm. [upc 12 - c4] and 916273 for the U46 option lamp asm. [ upc u46 - a3]??

Hi, does anyone have a pic or p/n of the original power steer pump cap - 68 Camaro

Hi all, How does one go about fitting the bright metal door edge guards without chipping the paint anyway! [68 Camaro]
They seem a tight fit. The shop manual doesn't give any clues.
