The factory pistons for the 350 engines in '68 and '69 Camaros where all the same regardless of horsepower.  They were flat head pistons with reliefs in them for valve clearance.  I don't know the part numbers, maybe Ed could look them up in his P&A book.  The only domed head piston Chevrolet used in the 350 engine in this time period was the one used for the '69 350/350HP Corvette.

I just emailed you a photo with the "firewall" hole location from a '68 Rally Sport survivor.  Good luck.

Hi & Welcome Craig -

There is a hole in the "firewall" to the left of where the master cylinder (or brake booster with power brakes) bolts to the "firewall" on original '68 Rally Sports.  This hole is where the factory routed the two vacuum hoses to the headlight switch.  As for authenticity of this hole, who's to say someone can't drill this hole post-factory during a Rally Sport conversion?  As far as the "SS hole in the left rear frame rail", could you possibly be thinking of the tail pipe adapter plate used on '69 Camaros with dual exhaust?

Great, new photo on your web site's home page!!  Reminds me of drag racing my own 1968RSZ at Baylands Raceway (now closed) in Fremont, CA during my high school years.  You have to love the "302"!

Paul,
Different year, different plant, different production usage patterns. Smiley


Kurt -

What do you mean by different plant?  Wasn't my rear axle also assembled by the Detroit Gear & Axle Plant?   Huh

Paul
4523  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 LM1 could this be one on: March 16, 2007, 06:55:12 PM
Actually, that's a long time between the axle and a body in that timeframe.

Hi Kurt -

Could you please elaborate on your above comment?  I based my response to "camaromikey" on my own car's numbers and would like to find out where I'm off.  I have a 02C built Los Angeles '68Z.  The numbers on it's original axle are:

rear axle stamp:  BU0119G1
                               E

axle casting date:  A38

axle casting number:  3894860NF

axle foundry control number:  CON1

Thanks in advance!

JohnZ, you are good!  That code is off the spare tire on my '68Z.

camaromikey -

Yes, it appears to be the correct rear axle for your car.  Yes, the 1 after the G is part of the axle code and is interpreted as "first shift".  PY1101G1 decodes as 2.56:1 axle ratio, non-posi, 12 bolt rear axle assembled on November 1, 1968 by the Detroit Gear & Axle Plant, first shift.  The date also would be correct for a 12B built car.  Congratulations!

I have heard of LM1s, but what exactly were they?

Here's an 11,000 mile Los Angeles built '68 (non RS) with the "wiring harness" inside the straps:

It appears the routing varies with options.   Cool

The smog equipment is currently hooked up and functioning.  Doing our part to keep CA air clean.

I hate to throw a wrench in the works, but my 02C Los Angeles built '68Z has the "front lighting harness*" routed between the inner and outer fenders.  My Z has the Rally Sport (RS) option, so maybe that it why it's different.  The three vacuum hoses (one from the intake manifold and two from the headlight switch) for the RS equipment are within the "two vertical plastic straps".  These two "straps" are mounted approximately 8.75" apart (center to center) on the inner fender.  Also supported in the front "strap" (the one closest to the radiator support) is the sub harness for the wiring to the alternator and cylinder head mounted temperature switch.  Below and offset to these two straps are two more straps.  These two lower straps are single hole mounted "loop straps" mounted approximately 8.625" apart (center to center) on the inner fender.  These two lower straps support the windshield washer reservoir hose and nothing else.

* This front lighting harness on my car also includes wiring to the engine (alternator, temperature switch), brake switch, horns, horn relay, voltage regulator, etc. and is mounted to the outer fender (on the inside) with two white  plastic clips.  One of these clips is located below the left hood hinge and the other above the RS tank vacuum relay valve.  Hope this helps.   Smiley
