I second that Ken!  From my very first post here ( http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1539.0 ) to other CRG member's posts ( http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1632.0 ) 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

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.

Hi Steve -

Just a heads up.  There's a 1968 Rally Sport on Ebay with what appears to be "chrome" on the headlamp doors (check out the photo of the "327" emblem in the listing).  I can't read the build date on the trim plate, all four photos are out of focus!  There is a phone number listed so you can call and talk to the seller if needed.  Also, I know we have a few CRG members in Southern California who might want to go on a field trip.   Wink   Here's the Ebay link:

I'm no expert, but I'd would say it's a restamp!  My vote is based solely on comparing the stamping to the stamping on my original 1111266 distributor.  Also, don't you think it's convenient that it happens to be dented up right in the very area of the  stamping?    Huh

Hi David -

What year Camaro are you working on?

Thanks Phil.  I was able to "save" the complete console too!  It's in beautiful shape except for a small fracture on the top half of the console between the console door and rear ashtray lid (that's where they all crack -  Sad ).

Hi GaryL -

Here's the thread on this very subject:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1625.0

Per Jerry MacNeish's advice the best way to place an emblem correctly is to make a tracing from an original fender, hood, etc. and then overlay the tracing paper on the new part.  It is very difficult to place an emblem properly using the AIM.  Good luck!   Smiley

Hi All -

I was just reading the June 1968 issue of Chevrolet Service News and found an article in it related to the 1968 Camaro console mounted clock that I thought I would post for the CRG since it relates to this thread.  Here's what it says:

1968 Camaro Console Mounted Clock Removal

The following procedure covers removal of the 1968 Camaro Console Mounted Clock (RPO U35).  This procedure is being published for the first time.

1.  Disconnect battery ground cable.
2.  Remove shift quadrant plate.
3.  Remove screws indicated in Figure 6.  Separate top half of console.  Disconnect electrical connectors from rear of clock.
4.  Lift top half of console until it clears shift lever.  From underside, remove clock mounting screws.  Remove clock.
5.  To install, reverse steps 1-4.


I just thought I would post this info as it doesn't appear in any of the 1968 Chevrolet factory repair manuals.   Smiley

There's no way to determine which alternator came on your car through the car's trim plate.  For a 1967 Z/28 you have three different alternators possible:

1) 1100693  -  37 amp  (standard)
2) 1100696  -  42 amp  (optional)
3) 1100750  -  61 amp  (optional - very rare)

If you decide to check the state of your engine with a cylinder leakage test each cylinder to be tested must have the piston at TDC (top dead center) on the compression stroke, so that both valves are closed.  If the piston is not in this position you will get a reading of 100% leakage!  Have fun.   Smiley

You can find that information in your chassis service manual in the specifications section.  Compression specifications are found in the tune up chart specs.  The compression spec in my 1968 chassis service manual for a 350 is 160 psi at cranking speed, throttle wide open with a maximum variation of 20 lbs. between cylinders.

1967 Z/28s used starter motor number 1107496.

I'm curious, what exactly was done and how much did it cost out the door?   Huh

Paul

P.S. - Nothing is as quick as a 302!   Grin
