anyone have their original hose that can share their labeling?
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: N40 with C60 on: December 13, 2014, 08:34:44 PM
I have the a/c comp mounted and was about to install the ps pump
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: N40 with C60 on: December 12, 2014, 07:00:21 PM
ha ha
i had a brain fart, I realized the pump bracket mounts to the first manifold bolt while the A/C mounts to the 2nd and 3rd
I can only guess it was mounted prior to the motor being attached to the subframe, otherwise that bottom bolt is a pain
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / power steering hose on: December 11, 2014, 09:53:59 PM
I am trying to determine if I have the original pressure hose. It has the numbers  3/8  GY 4748A  1D 19
I found this thread that has some info, at the end of the post, on the numbers
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / N40 with C60 on: December 11, 2014, 09:48:29 PM
Does anybody have power steering with a/c on a small block? I am concerned about the spacing of the bracket for the rear of the compressor. Is there a special spacer to offset the rear of the A/C bracket on the exhaust manifold? The AIM makes no reference to C60 under the N40 RPO. Pictures would be greatly appreciated
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: starter bracket for 350 on: November 20, 2014, 10:57:27 PM
I have a similar one to the item from classic muscle
is the one pictured in the first post correct for a 350/300 AT?
8  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 :  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?

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
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Shipping Data Report vs Trim Tag on: November 05, 2014, 09:24:13 PM
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'll throw the wrench into the works

I took my door panels off today and realized they both had the #81
hmmm? Huh
14  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?
15  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
