Hey great site guys n gals.
I'm new here and will be spending as much time as I can asking questions and helping others as much as I can.

One site issue, the behaviour of the 'quote' button is somewhat annoying. When highlighting a bit of text in my reply box that I want to appear as a quote, when I click the quote button it puts both opening and closing quotes at the end of the highlighted text.
Any way to change that so the opening quote appears at the start of the highlighted text?
Not a huge issue, just what I'm used to.   Smiley

His work is pricey, but perfect


So is it nos, or 'nos like' repro's that he does under licence? or are they nos blanks but code cut using a punch machine instead of a milling machine to cut the bittings
318  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 396 hood ornaments and side marker bezel on: May 02, 2006, 12:08:36 PM
oh sorry, yes mine are the same - blacked out in the main channel only, around the stacks not between the stacks.
What about 69's, were they blacked out in the side marker bezel groove?
The reason I ask is that the side markers never seemed to come from GM parts with the black in the groove, unless 69's were without the black and it was therefore left to the purchaser to apply the black as required?
319  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 396 hood ornaments and side marker bezel on: May 02, 2006, 09:04:50 AM
My research suggests that the factory fitted 68 Camaro 'stacked' hood ornaments were painted in a satin black out around the outside of the stacks and in the ornament channels and also inside the thin channel running around the side marker bezel faces.
Can anyone confirm this?
320  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / dimmer switch for 68 Camaro on: May 02, 2006, 06:58:10 AM
Hi all,
Does anyone have the GM p/n or Delco p/n and/or a pic for the dimmer switch in 68 Camaro?
321  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: May 01, 2006, 03:23:42 PM
There is a company called www.jessersclassickeys.com that is advertises nos keys. I bought some nos keys for my 69 camaro, he can also stamp the key codes on the knock outs like the how the keys would have came from the factory when the car was new.

Hey good stuff, but none of their links [buttons] lead anywhere??? or do you have to sign up to even browse the site?? Tried sending an email to them via their web mail and it was returned to me as undeliverable??

So, the early style ones from Classic would say GM on one side (as pictured on pg. 149) and then Briggs and Stratton on the other?
Didn't you say earlier in this thread that that is what you got from Classic, GM stamped one side and Briggs and Stratton on the other??

But I'm still unclear if these are ORIGINAL or REPRO?

I could not class them as repro if they do have Briggs and Stratton on one side and the GM trademark on the other side,
For a product to carry a manufacturers name and/or trademark it has to be at the very least done under licence from the owner/s of those names/trademarks, if manufactured by a 3rd party.

They don't qualify as NOS, only keys struck back in 67-68 would qualify as NOS, but they would qualify as reissues, or maybe even genuine reissues if the original B & S dies are being used to mint the heads by a 3rd party.
Definitely would qualify as genuine reissues if B & S are punching them out.

That does explain, however, why many of us are walking around with E/F keys to start our 68s.
Can't make that add up, EH [i think you meant H, not F] shoudn't fit a 68 or 67, different key groove positions, or did you meant the EH style key with the rectangular/oval head but with CD grooving?
Only CD grooving should fit 68 locks.

The original 67 - 68 B & S hex keys are listed on page 149 of the current Classic Industries catalog, which is an enormous pdf file, now 138MB in size @ 932 pages!!
324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: April 29, 2006, 09:38:27 PM
yeah, see here for the key run-down  http://www.camaros.org/keysandlocks.shtml

oh lol!! hey Lakeholme, I was just about to quote you and reply to  something u said about the B & S early keys listed in Classic's catalog and you edited it out of your post  Smiley
I couldn't see the caviate that you quoted
325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 396 radiator cap on: April 29, 2006, 11:37:35 AM
Hi, was the original radiator cap for 68 396 350hp the short eared or long eared type?
Were they 15 psi?
Any pics appreciated
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: April 29, 2006, 08:24:31 AM
Ah ok, so mine was built 3rd week of December 1967, and would definitely have come with hex keys.

Yup, I see a lot of stuff on ebay being listed as NOS when it's clearly not, and they're not just using NOS as a keyword either.
327  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: April 28, 2006, 05:02:47 PM
True, but they must be punched out under licence from Briggs and Stratton [and GM], if not by B & R themselves?
If they are punched by B & R then that would quaify them as new genuine re-issues?
328  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Folding rear seat option on: April 28, 2006, 02:52:36 PM
Ah, I understand the legend now, pretty obvious really  Roll Eyes
Ok, so the multileaf rear springs in G31 are the same as in F41? with G31 being a way to order multileaf rears for vehicles other than SS etc?

I really should start a new thread for this spring discussion  Smiley
329  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Folding rear seat option on: April 28, 2006, 12:00:37 PM
wow,a few but not that many. I have U46 and A31 also, very few of those options.
A question, F40 and F41 requires 12300 and 12400. I can't see a reference to what 12300 and 12400 are?
330  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: April 28, 2006, 09:38:02 AM
Hey thanks for he info.

I bought a couple sets from Classic Industries last fall.  They had "Briggs and Stratton" on them.
interesting, were they quoted as NOS or exact repro's?
