Anyone have a similar decoding reference for Firestone?
My brother works for Firestone corp and he hasn't been able to get an answer on the 60's era tire codes

Not sure how many are known.  I knew of one that was in Scottsville, KY but it was sold and no idea where it went.  Originally a small block car but was built as a BB.  Cant remember if it was made to be an L35 or 78 though.  There is also another one that was in middle TN but not sure if its still around.. 

I know this forum is dedicated to the pacers of all years but not sure if they are keeping data.

I personally love the blue topped pacers.. 



I concour and add Blue topped 69 Trans AM convs...

Thought factory wheels were painted black on the back, service wheels were grey?

CBTN Figure 17-9.
The way I read the painting notes:

PLAIN K-H Part No E-82277 Cust PN _____
Coat with Rustproofing Oil: K-H Part No E-82278 Cust Part No. 3958480
Gray Primer K-H Spec B-3352: K-H Part No E-82279   Cust Part No. 3966934
Same as E-82279 except tape  identify for Chevrolet Service: K-H Part No E-82280

This relates to the 69 AD rally.

I assume you guys are hashing out the SS AO/YA wheels at this point. Does anyone have a copy of the CBTN for 70-75 & does it contain the K-H drawing with notes on it that might clarify.


Does this mean KH painted the wheels or does it mean they shipped rustproof oiled wheels?


As an aside - The N66 wheels were supplied by Motor City wheel not KH


K-H shipped whatever the customer ordered; the assembly plants ordered GM #3958480, K-H #E-82278. SERVICE ordered GM #3966934, K-H #82280.

If all wheels shipped to plants were raw rust proof oiled KH # 82278 and all wheels shipped as service were to be KH spec B-3352 grey then there is no need for KH# 82279 (which appears to be a grey wheel withOUT tape to identify as a service wheel)
It exists for a reason, internally at KH or?

I have always liked the bright blue bumblebee/interior and white combo of the 67 pacer. The bright blue along with the brighter Ermine white always looked much cleaner, more subtle, and thus more in line with the open wheeled racing set to me.

How many 67 L78 pacers are known?
Charlies actual pace car and did Tom have one?

52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Sbc oil pan gasket on: May 26, 2014, 08:57:04 AM
  Have you considered a 1-piece gasket? The molded 1-piece gasket beats the old design in a landslide. They don't leak and are just stupidly easy to install. Just a thought and good luck!

They are so nice... Wish we had then back in the 80's.

LA conntinued to stamp the pad Norwood changed to the filter boss... If I am not mistaken it was due to LA being a GMAD plant and Norwood being a Fisher Body/ Chevrolet Assembly plant.

Broaches wear and thus the changes due to wearing will show in the marks the tooling produces in processing the work piece. If you have broach marks from day to day they would show a progression of wear in the "scratches" produced.

Did you take any before pictures of the firewall?
I wouldn't be surprised if there were some yellow mist with the black over it on the top of the vertical and roll over like in the picture of the Gold/black stripe Z I posted earlier.

If you study this, realize there are 2 different black paints here, the firewall black that has a fine gold mist over the top 1-2" of the firewall, by fine I mean a 5% coverage max. Then You have CODE 10 GLOSS Black stripe color leading to the edge on the cowl top. Looking at it knowing there are 3 different paints and where they are should help you and your painter understand what should be where. Who's on first?



 if you look very close you can see the fine gold mist it looks almost like dust.



Yours probably had some yellow where the gold is here, blacks shot the same.

I would do it similar to the cars produced around the date of your car, and the plant your car was produced at.
X2
Early norwood cars were much sloppier and some had a good deal of mist down the firewalls, the black car is a 4/24 production date and is much neater than earlier,

The black stripe cars did not have as much of a visual problem with overspray showing as the white striped cars.
Regarding LA I have little experience in their stripes.
