1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Earliest 3969341 and Latest 3894860 axles on: February 26, 2015, 08:43:44 PM
I have seen 2 - Z28,s now with what I think are replacement hsgs under warranty. Both were "341 housings. 1 was a 02B Van Nuys car and the other a 11A Norwood Z. Both axle housing were cast date D-9?-1 ( might have been D-7-1), and neither car had any numbers on the tube.
 The 02B car had Dec/68 dated 373 gears and posi as well as original GM brake shoes and backing plates/axles etc. Housing appeared to be bare steel, looked newer than other components but the brakes backing plates/diff cover were black and appeared older.
 If cars ripped the spring perches off ( they wheel hopped without traction bars) while under the 5 yr warranty period, did GM just change the housing and reinstall the other diff parts?

You could allways pull the drivers head and see if the deck has been messed with, then post pictures?

If you look closely at the bottom of the pad you can see circular uniform cutter marks from a horizontal milling machine like a Storm Vulcan Blockmaster etc. Stamp appears to have some inconsistent fonts when comparing it to known originals I have, it also looks like it has been sandblasted judging from the pad patina. I don't think personally it is a original.  IMO.

Here is a Real Pad from a LA Z28, remember that engines were all built at Flint, engine id stamps should be the same. vin stamps were added at the assembly plant.

Also another real 2 days later, not a Great picture though, Sorry.

Some Later Issue GM front wheel well mouldings came with no holes for some reason, a pain to drill unless you have originals to use as a pattern.

Have McNeish or someone inspect it. Lots of stuff wrong.

Well I tried looking through all my pics and did not have a good angle to see it present on my car (69Z). I am pretty sure I have the original starter on mine, but it could have been removed at one point. Any other 69Z or other 69 model guys have this bracket on their car?

Yep, My 06A RSZ28 still has both.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Bolt for front wheel fender mouldings on: October 01, 2014, 08:40:07 AM
Well I don't know about the serrated bolts, but my 06A Norwood RSZ28 has dark phosphate bolts, they have "RBW' head markings, original, non serrated.

I recently restored a 02B Los Z28 and it had a mixture of "RBW" and "anchor" bolts also non serrated, very original car.

Both cars have wheel well trim. BTW.

Thats the correct bushing for 69-72 Camaro, Here is another shot of it.

BTW 68-72 Chev truck uses the same bushing in the lower alternator brkt, also 68-77 Corvette.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Original Horns #289 & 290 with odd dates or not ? on: September 20, 2014, 07:56:38 PM
My 06A Z28 has 9-B-4 ( "289" horn) and 2-C-9 ( "290" horn).
 I have owned the car since 74, I thought the 290" might have been changed or a warranty deal, Im not so sure now.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 20, 2014, 01:23:54 PM
Bsg does have a small flared end against the pump.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: What's the correct Alternator bracket for a 69 Z/28 on: September 19, 2014, 08:51:18 PM
Seems to me the bushing might have a flared type end that rests against the smog pump, and it is seamed. I never had a chance to take a picture today, car is up on a storage hoist.  I will tomorrow and post a picture.

You just beat me to the punch on the pulley spacer rszmjt ...lol.  Yes the top bracket in my first pic is the correct one.  Len (6667ss138) had pointed out to me about a spacer that's pressed into his bracket in the most central hole of his bracket (which mine is missing).  Is that for the smog pump attachment ?

Thanks

Yes The upper smog pump bolt goes through the spacer into the pump.

My bracket is Black original paint, I have owned this Z28 40 yrs last Saturday

Hmm doesn't the Z28 smog pump have a spacer under the pulley also for alignment?
Never have seen pics of an original set-up showing correct parts for alignment.
Anyone have pics and dimension for pulley spacer as well? 

Nope, 1969 Z28 does not use a spacer, 458 pulley goes rite against the white plastic fan hub. The Upper bracket is Correct, the lower bracket is for 74 up. My car has original smog, I will post a picture tomorrow
