Wow!  Our cars might be brothers.  Your car is about 500 units before mine.  What is the build date on your trim plate?  Mine is 02C.

That tag is the "assembly number" for the transmission - it identifies the specific combination of main, side cover, and tailhousing castings, gearset type and ratios, input and output shafts, and output shaft speedo drive gear diameter and tooth count to suit a specific usage. Although most Muncies look the same externally, there were about a dozen different "assemblies" used, and that part number tag (and the broadcast code) identified which one they were.

Where can I found the specific usage of this number (3915085)?  I'm curious if this number was only used for a Z/28?

Usually stamped at least three to four times.  On the very front part of the case, at the rear of the case, on the center bearing support, and the tailshaft lip.

Jerry

Now that's something I didn't know and will have to check!  Is it always at least three to four times?

Paul  

I got under the old Z tonight to check for multiple vin stampings on the Muncie and could only find two.  Both stampings are on top of the case, right (passenger) side, one in the front and one in the back as Jerry described.  There could be more, but with the transmission in the car and 39 years of grime, that's all I could find with my mirror.  There is also a metal tag attached to transmission side cover with the number 3915085 embossed on it.  What does this number reference?

Cool photo John!  You have to write a book and fill it with these historic photos.   Smiley

Forgot to mention, how about the snakes!  When I was at Gregg's home, I was walking into his house and there was an 8-10' long brown snake on the steps of his porch.  It got my attention!  This thing was big and thick! 

I hate snakes!

What!!  The Z/28 "guru" is afraid of Cobras!!  Don't let this get out CRG!   Cheesy

If you were going to rebuild a 1968 302 engine, would you go with floating or pressed fit pins?

It would be 18Lxxx for LOS cars though right?

18Lxxxxxx for Los Angeles cars.  Also, the '68 Los Angeles built Camaros have the vin stamping on top of the transmission case.  This is where I found mine.

4528  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: how can i find out what my original tire size was? on: March 23, 2007, 04:52:53 PM
It's also listed in the Chassis Service Manual, Section 10, Wheels and Tires in case your tire pressure sticker is missing or illegible.  Your tire size is determined by what model Camaro you have.

No, this is the correct way:

The stainless baffle goes between the carb and the gasket, as shown in the Assembly Manual; the correct gasket has a slot in it that matches the "hot-slot" in the intake manifold.
