Ron,

Replace those ground straps and screws too!

JM

Jerry -

Why?  What's your thinking behind this?  Where do you buy replacement ground straps and screws?

hi all, im looking to buy this 67 convert camaro, they say orignal motor, but i have my doubts. cast# 3902406, cast date( im not sure where to find it) pad# L142277.  please let me know if you can decode it. thanks anthony.

belair -

The 3902406 block (L35 & L78 engines) was used in the Camaro in 1967.  The casting date on this block is located on the right lower side of the block near the freeze plug.  The L142277 could be the partial vin for a Los Angeles built car but should have a "7" before the L.  Does this "partial vin" match the last 7 digits of the vehicle's full vin?  Also, there should be an engine assembly code stamped here on the engine pad close to the partial vin.  Is the engine assembly code there?

1968 engines did receive engine lift hooks.

JM

Ugh!!  Mine are missing.  Jerry, did all the small blocks use the same ones?  Are the ones for 1968 engines the same as any other years?  Do they have any special stampings or (insert here) on them?  Thanks in advance.

Paul

Anybody?

Gambitt, when the commies come, I'm heading to you're house.  Is that your personal stash?

Gambitt, any relation to a John J. Rambo?   Grin

Backup lights

Correct.  Also, your oil pressure gauge line should have it's own hole and rubber grommet.

l have a 69 ss 396 325 hp that came with a quadrajet but the original carb is not with it. Does anyone know the correct carb number and a date? My guess is 7029200 but not sure of the date. The engine build date is T0416JG. Thank you Earl

Earl -

Good guess!  7029200 is the correct carburetor for the '69 Camaro 396-325 hp (L35) engine with the TH400 transmission.  The carburetor was installed at the car assembly plant, so it should be dated from about ten days to a month or two prior to the car's final assembly date.

Are you sure about the engine assembly date?  That's over 8 months after the block was cast.   Shocked

I emailed him to find out the VIN, checking for my engine. His VIN could not be 406XXX, needs to be 6XXXXX.

Gary -

I agree with you and that's why I stated the seller thinks the vin is what's posted.  I called him and directed him to the partial vin location over the phone.  He said it was "tough to read" and this is his best guess with the naked eye.  It will be interesting to see what vin he comes up with in response to your email.  Please let us know.
