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

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

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

Heartbeat City sells Rally Sport conversion kits for '67 - '69 Camaros.  Here's the one for a '68:

I mean keep the gear ratio original, as stamped on the axle tube.  With a 4.88:1 rear axle ratio you will reach redline at highway speeds!  Just my two cents worth.   Smiley

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

is this using the 3.73 gear?  i am thinking of leaving the dealer installed 4.88s in the diff.

Keep it original, PLEASE!   Smiley

4557  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 302 DZ Heads on: March 12, 2007, 12:39:48 PM
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

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.
