2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / starter bracket for 350 on: November 20, 2014, 10:19:09 PM
Does anyone have a picture of a starter bracket for a 350?
Reading through a previous post : http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8033.0  it appears that the 350 was different?
I purchased a generic one for the early SBC but it doesnt fit correctly

Just guessing here..  Tell me how close I am?   Smiley
 VINs from ~ 658146 to ~ 658795 came off the line on 18 June 1969.       Does your VIN fall into that range?

Close
based on my original guess I presumed the production completion date to be the week prior- possibly the 13th
based on your numbers, June 16th

Gary,
That's not correct. Orders were placed sometimes months in advance.
The tag was made for the build, not for the order.

'Months in advance' may be true for larger volume orders, or for dealers orders leading into a new model year, but in cases of a 'customer order' (which receives higher priority for build scheduling), it is generally 2-4 weeks.   I 'special ordered' a handful of cars (Chevrolet and Chrysler) during the early 70's, and the fastest a car came in was 2-3 weeks, and the longest was around 4 weeks prior to the cars' build.   I know from my own engirneering/manufacturing background (not the automobile industry), that when an order was received, it was 'estimated' when the order could be filled (for feedback to the customer).   Since all the other information on the cowl tag (model/options/etc) is KNOWN, or generated (bdy nbr), at the time of order acceptance  I'm curious just exactly how long after order acceptance did it take Chevrolet to provide the information to Fisher and and when did Fisher 'fix' the data that would go on the cowl tag?   I'd think this would happen in a few days to a week at most.

The fact that some cars cowl tag date and actual build date differ significantly suggests that there was sufficient time between the "cowl tag data generation" (that could be well before the cowl tag actually being made) that temporary unforeseen parts shortages etc could affect the time difference.   If the cowl tag data (production week) was generated at the time the car was actually beginning the build, then we should not be seeing the significant difference in the dates as we do.  We've already been informed by JohnZ and others that once the body began the process, hardly nothing affected the build sequence, and the production rate was 'fixed'...

The body tag could remain in queue if a sudden material shortage arose. Our '67 Z/28 project of many years ago had an 06E tag, V0706MO engine-no question it was OE. Car was final-assembled the second week in July. What happened? Who knows. Car had a blue custom interior, all it takes is one missing part to put the order on hold. Material-assuring orders must have been an error-prone manual process in those days.

Don't forget Fisher occasionally punched out tags well in advance. All June '69s are 06A, all July are 07A.

Interesting!  Would the part shortage have been on the Fisher or the Chevrolet side?
I am itrigued as my 69 06A - for what it is worth  - has a 0526 built motor and all the engine accessories date to the same time, but the NCRS puts the shipping date as June 18th

Does anybody know what size is for the windshield washer and the size for the AC vacuum hoses? A place that sells reproduction hose?

I took my door panels off today and realized they both had the #81
hmmm? Huh
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / star stamped block on: October 18, 2014, 08:45:01 AM
Has anyone seen a block stamped with a star? Is there any information as to what it signifies?
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: #82 on: October 10, 2014, 09:50:58 PM
Thanks John
I had a feeling you would know
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Part Number Stamp or Sticker on Wiper Motor Assy on: October 10, 2014, 09:50:07 PM
06A Nor SS nonRS  sticker only 5045572 134 9 6 B

Tim, armed with new information my 06A would more than likely have been an 06C
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: s stamp - any ideas on: October 10, 2014, 04:39:07 AM
above the right corner of the vacuum canister
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / #82 on: October 09, 2014, 08:23:28 PM
While cleaning and repairing my 69, I have come across the #82 on several pieces.  The heater core box(pictured), the inside of the fan/ evap suitcase, on the bottom of the evap, back center of the gauge cluster, and on the air distribution duct. the one on the heater box is red the rest are yellow.
has anyone else seen this pattern? know what it was for? was there an RPO 82? or maybe the X82nd car on the line that day?
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / s stamp - any ideas on: October 09, 2014, 08:17:15 PM
I found this stamp - any ideas as to what it was for?
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Sway bar bracket change on: September 24, 2014, 07:39:25 PM
While having difficulty trying to find replacement bushings for my sway bar, I often wondered when the change occurred. Any ideas? Would it make sense to create a research topic upon such? Having an 06A(2nd week) Norwood car, I can only assume the change to the larger, fingered, bracket happened before then.
What I have found soo far is that the bracket remained the same from 1967- some time in '69.  I can only surmise that the new bracket design may have been to accomidate the larger 13/16 sway bar for 1970.

Was there only one style of tie rod sleeve or were there two? 
Thank you
