Found two white paint marks when the other end of the driveshaft was soaked. The dimension (tape measure in pic) was from the centerline of the rear universal.


Both welded on Yokes are part # 3790024 and both seem to have a "318-2" beside the castings chevrolet embossed emblem. Notice the orange paint also.

Thanks Guys.
It was Chick's 3rd post in this thread with what looks like an AIM page with tape wrapping the bushings that had me confused. I thought that was the tape in question.
Anyway, I (also?) assumed it's purpose was to hold the bushings during assembly -post Fisher. ..and didn't thoroughly read the following posts. Smiley
That picture Steve came with a Quanta 68 marking kit and was noted as "Technical Bullentin #69". They have several (8 or 9) of these "Technical Bullentin" numbered forms and many of them are confirmed with what I have found on our car and read what others have found. Have no idea to how correct or not on this particular bullentin #69.

Some of the corvette restorers are having tanks powder coated clear. They say they will stay nice forever. Seemed like an interesting option to look at Grin

They're fairly easy to find on Evil bay.   I got a nice one but didn't worry about the date because it's under the heat shield.  I had Jerry "re-skin" it.

I agree.... Dates under the heat sheild then buried again once bolted to the engine. Find a nice one, have Jerry do his magic (did mine also and they look new), and bolt that bad boy on.

Hello, yes the rear hole in the floor pan ,below the seat. thanks John

The tape is 3/4" wide and is very different in black texture. Not like any other tape I could tell you to go get. I mentioned in my post what John had mentioned some time back concerning the tape being used for covering the hole for the water test. The picture is of what comes in the Quanta kit is is listed as "Technical Bullentin #69".

Took it out of my cleaner set up and it seemed to eye ball just under 50". Yoke ends have the staggered offset, U bolts, and beginning of orange/white stripe is just over 5" from centerline of yoke. Yoke had both orange and yellow paint on it. Plenty of orange paint on that yoke. When I flip it I will report any new findings. Some pictures:

Got more info on the hole you are referring to? Pics?
This is what John is asking about and Quanta sells marking kits which have the tape or you can purchase it by itself. Others like heartbeat sell it also I'm pretty sure. JohnZ wrote some time back that he thought the tape was used to tape off the #3 hole for the water test..... I have the tape and will report back the size, etc...

Chick, what car was that driveshaft from?  Your 68 Z28? 

If so can you post the length from center of u joint to center of u joint.  Thanks.

Yes, the drive shaft is off our 68 Z/28 and the length is 52 1/2". I found the part # on the yoke but its very difficult to read other than a couple numbers.


AMA specs for '68 state 50.46" c-c.

Thanks William! Bryon, the info I supplied was from what I believe to be a 69 Camaro auto. trans and not my 68 Z/28. What a mistake but I had the wrong drive shaft! The yoke on the one I reported on is larger and will not even fit in our M21. After William's comment I thought I better double check and yikes, screwed up on this one. Will report on the 68 Z shaft after I complete the intitial cleaning.  Can tell you the yokes are offset and the length is approximately 50 1/2" in length.

Our late Dec. 67 built MO has the 678 block.

Joe, there were many different bolt suppliers for GM.  Each supplier had it's own head marking.

Paul

Paul is correct of course (Hi Paul), but to help a little we have two different suppliers on our 68 which include one supplier with the letters "R W B' evenly spaced around the inside edge of hex head and one that has two circles with what looks like a E L4 inside those two ciricles. Kind of wierd as the 4 looks like it is boxed in the L so maybe its something else but it is unique when you see one. I believe you can obtain proper marking bolts from different supply houses like Paragon, etc.

Running around like a nut trying to get ready.  Pulling out at first light on Wed morning.  Will be watching for Barney Fife this time.  The other good news is I'll have a Federal DEA agent in the truck with me.  I should let him do the drive by.............LOL.  My buddy has serious credentials........40 years in the police dept and has a Federal task force.  He wants me to drive by while he moons them.  Yeah, that'll happen.

Jerry 

So how was the racing Jerry and an update?

Should have mentioned that the lime green type color paint was on both sides of the yoke. In the center of the drive shaft there must have been some type of sticker/tape as the lines around the entire shaft (where it was) are very defined and very virgn material. Something was there but what I have no idea....
839  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: April 10, 2011, 08:40:09 PM
Several people are working on putting together original driveshaft information for 67-69 Camaros. Items of most interest at this point are below.

If you have an original driveshaft and would be willing to post information about your car, it would be very much appreciated. Here is what to include...

Year of car- 1968
Norwood or Los Angeles car- NOR
Month and week of vehicle assembly- 01B
Engine- MO
Transmission- M21
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint)- will need to measure
Driveshaft casting number- ? need to look for that but did not notice one before
Type of attachment to pinion yoke. There are two types: U bolts and the strap and bolts method.- U bolts
Code stamped on front of passenger side axle tube.- BV1129
Paint stripes and a picture (if possible)- Picture of lime green looking paint stripes on trans. yoke.
Position of the u-joint flanges on each end. Some cars were "in-line" and others were "clocked" about 30 degrees off from each other- in line

Post in this thread if you want. If you would rather not post, but still contribute, send an email to me please. Thanks.

Bryon

840  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Picture of actual random inspection audit sheet on: April 07, 2011, 08:37:14 PM
A good friend is restoring his 69 SS396 Nova and they found this under the carpet. Its dated Dec. 7, 1968 and was wondering if anyone had found this in their camaro. Per JohnZ it is a random audit inspection sheet which I would think would be not that common to find. Anybody else find one? Can you post a picture or supply and information?
