The vin would be helpful since it is on the protect-o-plate.  There is also a partial vin stamped on the engine block and transmission case.  Posting your vin would increase your chances of finding your original parts, just watch out for fakes!   Smiley

Keep it original, PLEASE!   Smiley

Because there's VERY little metal left between the valve seats on 2.02" heads as it is, and it's very easy for a shop not intimately familiar with these castings to go through into the water jacket when cutting the recess for the seat, at which point the heads are scrap. The seats are NOT necessary unless you're towing a trailer at 100mph all day long or the engine's going in a boat.

Thanks John.  I've never heard that before!  My car has been stored for 26 years and I have not "fired her up" because everybody tells me to install hardened valve seats before I do.  So lets see... I need to change all the fluids and install a new battery...   Grin

You're right Steve.  I guess I should read the text too, instead of just looking at the pictures.   Embarrassed

Why Jerry?   Huh

Hi Rich -

That's a water pump pulley for a 1969-70 Camaro, Chevelle, Nova, or Impala with a 396 cid engine (both 325 & 350 hp) and air conditioning.

Jerry -

Is black a rare color for Camaros in general, or only for Z/28s?

4523  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Glove compartment light on: March 09, 2007, 04:30:41 PM
I just checked my '68Z with custom interior and it too only has the glove box light.

Southerner -

The console mounted gauge package (RPO U17) was an option.  It was not mandatory with the Z/28 package.  In 1969 you could order a tachometer without the console mounted gauge package.  However, when you ordered the console mounted gauge package you got a tachometer.  So in your case, someone added the console mounted gauges and/or removed the tach from the dash.   Huh  Adding the console mounted gauges is most likely what occured.

I believe the steering boxes were not painted when they left the factory, just natural metal.  On the survivor cars I've seen all the steering boxes have been covered in surface rust with no traces of paint.

I figured it wasnt real as I know of only one good date for these. Thanks for confirming what I thought.
Auction says "GUARANTEED ORIGINAL STAMP". I guess somebody is going to pay over $1000 for a restamp. Shocked

Mike -

You have to be very careful how people word things, especially on Ebay.  If the seller stamped an unstamped distributor, then he could claim "guaranteed original stamp".  The true original ones I've seen usually say "guaranteed original factory stamping".  My advice is to do your homework and ask a lot of questions, as you have done by starting this thread.  Good luck finding one.

"HAS A FEW NICKS AROUND THE DATE"  In other words "The grinder got away from me"


Very funny Mike!!   Grin   Grin   Grin

I second that Ken!  From my very first post here ( ) to other CRG member's posts ( ) Jerry MacNeish (and others here at CRG) have help me to verify my Z/28 is not only the "real deal" but also extremely original.  So Jerry, I too thank you wholeheartedly!   Wink

4529  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111266 Distributor on ebay on: March 07, 2007, 11:15:37 PM
Very good Mark (Zedder)!  You have noted two of the four abnormalities I saw which make me think it's a restamp!   Cool

I'd go with a good, used original fender over NOS.  I've seen many flaws in NOS parts, specifically sheetmetal.
