Nicki the factory wouldn't have put the Z28 emblem on the fender unless it was a real Z28. This would have been something added by a prior owner. It's VERY common to see Camaro's with Z28 emblems on them. Too common in fact. Chevrolet originally built only 602 Z28's in 1967. Nowdays you can't swing a dead cat without hitting one!!

Ed -

Don't forget, in 1967 the factory didn't put Z/28 emblems on any Camaros, not even on the 602 real Z/28s!   Wink

Let me start by apologizing up front!  I truly wasn't trying to embarrass you.  I was genuinely curious about why people spell Camaro that way.  I see it spelled that way a lot, especially on Ebay, and just wanted to find out if there was any reason behind it.  Like lakeholme (Phillip) said, "CRG has taught me the only way to learn is to ask!" and so that's what I did!  No hard feelings!   Smiley

Per Jerry's book: "A new sway bar bracket went into production in February, 1969.  The new bracket had four "fingers" to better retain the bushing."

No problem Ed!  I'm glad to help the experts for a change.

Also for those who are working on the hub/disc assembly, I neglected to mention you need to index (scribe) the hub to the disc before separating these two parts.  This is because the hub and disc are balanced as an assembly from the factory.  This procedure is also mentioned in the Chassis Service Manual.

Ed & John -

- 1969 Chassis Service Manual
- - Page 3-7 (FRONT SUSPENSION)
- - - see REPAIR PROCEDURES
- - - - see FRONT WHEEL HUB
- - - - - see Replacement of Wheel Hub Bolts

This info is on the same page in the 1968 Chassis Service Manual for those who don't have a 1969 manual.

Ed, I got the spec straight out of the 1969 Chevrolet Chassis Service Manual.  I just double checked the spec in the 1968 Chevrolet Chassis Service Manual, it's the same = 60 ft. lbs.  Ed, each of the five bolts also has a heavy duty lock washer on it.  I guess if you are still concerned, you could put loctite on each bolt for extra insurance.  Also when I have done these in the past, I have tightened them down in a star pattern (like a wheel) in four rounds:
1) 30 ft. lbs.
2) 45 ft. lbs.
3) 60 ft. lbs.
4) double check at 60 ft. lbs.

But that is just me.   Wink

60 ft. lbs.  Your welcome.

Dave -

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.

4556  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 Camaro RS/SS help!!! on: March 20, 2007, 01:08:38 AM
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
4560  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!

Paul
