Here is the engine out of the blue 69 Z I recently restored.



Hi John,

  I thought the engine prefix stamp was applied before the heads were mounted which explained why some of the stampings were close to the head to deck edge or under the water plug protrusion as with BB's. Or was it different between BB and SB in regards to when the pad was stamped in relation to the head mountings?

Mike

Yes, BB were stamped without heads installed, SB with the heads installed

Here is an early configuration of Titus's 69 car, it has a duct taped 68 front bumper on a 69 styled body

There are many cars in this collection I have not seen, or have not seen in the color configurations pictured.
Many 67 Camaro's some with 68 front ends.

For a better illustration of parts in the AIM go to the L34 section, it has the early clamp part numbers listed along with the complete list of parts.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 1968 SS hood ornaments on: March 28, 2014, 10:01:03 AM
Do they appear to have silver paint in the area or is it a textured surface?
It also looks as though the matte silver comes all the way to the top on the outside of the stacks, is this correct?

BTW the inner black out in the bottom of the stacks appears to be anodized aluminum in the originals, are the NOS ones the same?
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: markings on fender extensions on: March 26, 2014, 07:43:15 AM
I thought they were there to indicate fender piercings.
I have seen many Z28 extensions with G, which coincidentally is the build sheet engine code for the Z28.
Have also seen RG on a Rally Sport Z28 and it was not Rally Green.

 
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Rust on galvanized parts on: March 25, 2014, 01:36:43 PM
If you use the Evaporust on galvanized......after the Evaporust had done its job......what is left on the surface where the rust was? Galvanizing or bare metal?

Either way, if you just spray it with Boeshield afterwards, just doing that will protect it for years to come?

Thank.................Dave

Boeshield it a great product however I have found a Dupont product which is a teflon based waxed chain protectant/lube. it works better, lasts longer and is 1/3 the price. PLUS... the wax base dries to a film without gloss and isn't tacky. Designed for motorcycle chains it resists slinging off, water spray, & etc.

If it was a larger pitted area I sprayed some zinc rich cold galvanizing paint on a rag and rubbed it into the area.  same thing I did to the Gas tank on a survivor.

door has had paint work at some point...

Biggest tell is...
The felt guides screwed (with little countersunk phillips head screws) to the outside of the door are completely covered in orange paint...

The C-clamps are correct for the over axle hanger attachment to the pipe on early cars.

Is this what you're talking about Ed?
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Muncie cleaning on: March 21, 2014, 08:38:26 PM
Yes, anything die cast will oxidize quickly, the skin created through the vibratory tumbler with steel shot appears to slow the oxidation process and slightly polish the casting.

 
The appearance of your main case is pretty nice, if you degrease it then use carb clener and a tooth brush it will look great, the tail shaft may require something more powerful (foaming oven cleaner?)  as it appears to be heavily oxidized.
If you use oven cleaner tape off the rest of the trans as it is very powerful and you don't want to mess up your cast finish.
Oven cleaner will also take the polished look off a set of aluminum valve covers.
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Engine emblems assembly line different LH and RH? on: March 21, 2014, 08:15:37 PM
The 69 AIM lists RH LH part numbers for 307 emblems.
The 396 car I am painting now has an original RH 396 Emblem which has the casting number of 3938672 RH and the Triangle TC logo inside the back, it also has a different profile than the other emblem on the car which has 3962951 casting number.
The NOS GM ones I see for sale have both 3938671 and 3962951 cast into the back.

Also I recently found a used RH version of the 350 emblem on ebay with the casting number being one off of the number cast in the back of the NOS emblems marketed as being for LH or RH.
 


So my question is were production line emblems different left to right?
