Yep, 5/16-18X3/4 1/2AF .66 O.D. AMK B-12589 (6) and for sure a phosphate screw. The supplier was a GM supplier and the screw is technically correct size and finish wise IMO Lloyd.

That is what we used in our 68 but had it brazed around the two stems for strength and tested at our local radiator shop. I test them all before they go in! Smiley

The round valve under the MC is a metering/hold off valve, the proportioning valve is located on the subframe. There is then the distribution block. The hold-off valve can be rebuilt by a car owner and it is an easy job. Not sure if a rebuild kit is offered for the proportioning valve yet. This has been on this site before:

The metering/hold off valves nut is phosphate for a 68 (oh how I found that out LOL) as a reminder and maybe I've missed something but what prompted the coating on the three soft brake line clips as all originals I've looked at including mine were phosphate. Parts looking very nice! Smiley

Lloyd, just noticed your note now so any checks will have to be in the near future as I was at my friends house (had to visit anyway on other car stuff) and took a picture of his 21K mile hugger orange Z solenoid today before seeing your note, dang it!

James, hope to be able to check low mileage 69 Z tomorrow but this one is from a late 10D NOR Camaro that we owned and was sold but still in the family. Has the +

Steve and team completed our 69 L78 Nova last year at another event and I highly recommend the experience. And overall the MCACN show is the best I've ever attended as the cars are just the best of the best. Last year was my first but hopefully will be back this year and many more. For sure plan on taking our 68Z out there when completed.
Great show and great people!

Looks like one used for cowl induction cars of 69. The length is?

The hard-stampers I worked with in my Industrial Engineering days were fixed; the part was rolled over the stamp set.

Off-set ink stampers transferred an image to a fixed part.
Yea I remember those similar William, we used what we called a "roll stamp" to stamp parts in round pieces. The carriage could be taken out and different fonts/numbers could be installed. As the part rotated the stamp moved across the rotating part to stamp.

That's what I was thinking.. A trick that you probably all know already, that was taught to Chick, then he recently taught me...Carefully cut the bottom of the battery off, deal with the mess, clean out the case, pull the battery posts out and presto install a Mazda Miata battery in the case. Shim it up tight if need be, nice and clean and seal it up. Pretty cool idea by somebody years ago I'm sure.
 Anyway, I have to think about it and see what to do, but I am leaning towards firing it up, we'll see.. D
Danny, yep you pull the guts but not the posts. Valuable piece you have so we understand the tough decision and why your going to receive many yea's and nays on using. I learned about gutting and placement of anther battery from a C2 NCRS judge friend. That NCRS gang know their stuff on a lot of stuff.  Grin

Danny, in our build thread I purchased a NOS yellow Delco eye and then we matched that paint to paint the caps that came with our Y55 in the early 80's as they were red.
Could send you a close up picture to at least come close on the color if you decide to paint some caps.

Some look dang good but what's underneath can be, well simply said, bad news. I've seen some bondo warriors! As previously noted, any good shop will document for both the customer and themselves the process. I must have a couple thousand pictures of my restoration. Smiley

You don't need to be there when the truck arrives. They will unload it and park it over to the side. I will be there when the trucks arrive assisting in unloading and can babysit your car off the truck if you want. If anybody has never been but has been thinking about going it really is like no other show. You have never seen so many nice cars in one place indoors. I think we have lined up for this years show 20 Hemi Cuda and Challenger converts. There has never been that many in one place before..
I just hope the trucks stay out until the bulk of the cars are removed. With 7 tractor trailers inside the building it causes a huge jam log getting out. Smiley, especially when the weather is not cooperating.

As I told you already Danny, great score!

^^  Thank you.
Yes, he led a long life, and enjoyed 27 years of retirement!!  I consider myself very lucky.
Glad to see you back Jeff and I can only wish to have 27 years of retirement. Your Father was blessed and as Gary commented to have that picture, well that is just memorable!
Welcome back!
