I would leave it. I would rather have the old original one than a repop one.

Ditto!    Smiley

When was the changeover from the AP decal to the AG decal on the 68 Z28s? I am speaking of the tire pressure decal on the glove box door. I have seen some with AP and some with AGinside the bowtie.

fireZ -

My 02C Van Nuys built 1968 Z/28 has "AY" inside the chevy bowtie insignia on the tire pressure decal.  The part number on the decal is 3934882.  What's the code and part number on your tire pressure decal?

Paul,
Patience grasshopper!  Smiley

A or B (shift or plant, I've never seen it confirmed)
Then Julian date, then year (single digit).

'A 032 9' is Feb 1, 69.

Kurt,
Thanks Master!   Smiley

Steering gear housing cast date:  363  (Friday 12-29-67)

Steering gear assemble date:  B 036 8  (Shift or plant B on Monday 2-5-68)

Van Nuys build date:  02C


I just wanted to be sure we were deciphering the code correctly because firez's '68 Van Nuys built Z/28 was built after mine (02E), yet his steering gear was cast and assembled months before mine.    Huh

Thanks again.

Paul

Anybody know how to decipher the stamped assembly code on a first generation Camaro manual steering gear?

Anybody...?

There is a machined pad on the box that has the assembly date.  It's the Julian format too.  I couldn't see mine until I cleaned it up.  It's on the box where the cover goes on and is about 4 o'clock from the lash adjuster nut looking toward the firewall.

Thanks 68Z!  I've never noticed (or have heard about) the machined pad with the assembly code stamped on the manual steering gear housing.  Very cool!  So the cast julian date just below the steering gear housing casting number (5679142) is the date the housing was cast (like the casting date on an engine block) and the stamped assembly code on the machined pad is the date the steering gear was assembled (like the stamped engine assembly code on the engine pad).  Anybody know how to decipher the stamped assembly code on a first generation Camaro manual steering gear?

I recall seeing this item on ebay a few years ago. Extends the seat track several inches for taller drivers. Anyone know where it can be purchased?

I was thinking of using two engine stands and securing them together with a bar at the bottom. Would this work?

I don't see why not, that is what the rotisseries from Auto Twirler look like:  http://www.autotwirler.com/store/index.php?main_page=index
