Trim tag code 69 = Cortez Silver,  Car looks Orange?  Engine stamp is way too early for 02B, just restored a 02B Z, stamp was V0206DZ. Car has the wrong water pump.

What I don't like is if you install as per AIM, it trys to push the fork off the bellhousing ball, and it wears out the fork clip. JMO again.

AIM is wrong IMO. I have been putting them from the inside for 40 yrs. My 69 Z28 has been installed opposite to aim since I bought the car in 74.

I cant believe how the verbal actions of certain individuals can cause such a predicament, Why Cant we all just get along?

 Ed is a MAJOR bonus to this site, I would sincerely Hope he can get past what has transpired and bring his wealth of knowledge back to us.

Kurt  - I Agree 100% also, some of the posts had unnecessary attitude.

Mike, Kudos, Glad you got Full Points for the trim rings !!

This debate about the different style trim ring has been going on for years, and will probably go on.
 I personally think the 4 clip style was the assembly line installed trim ring when the Z28 was assembled and the full serration type was a superceded/updated design trim ring. I don't honestly know how #9796696 serrated trim ring could have been used in 1969, that part number never even showed up until the 72-74 GM parts book. BTW 67 Corvette used the same 4 clip trim ring and the GM parts book for Corvette shows the #9796696 trim ring as the superceded number for the 4 clip trim ring.

JMO of Course.

My RSZ28 trunk lid, 06A (June 18th) no tabs and the spoiler rear attachment is encapsulated washers nuts, spoiler had never been off. Owned the car since 74, no oval lower hole. True D80 car, Canadian Docs.

You should get at least 1/2 points on trim rings. LOL.

I Agree 100% with Gary, I'm  convinced the 4 clip outer type were the line installed trim ring in 69, As I posted before on the trim ring post in "Originality" Section.

It was a great turn out!!  With the weather iffy all the cars got in and out of the building without issue.  My second trip netted a score of 97.1 or 4855 points out of 5000.  A lot is owed to Bob Harris, Larry Christensen, Brad Mcadam and Jerry Macneish.  They all helped me over this past year to bring the car to this point.  I will post some pictures of the car at the show shortly.  I like the fact that they were very clear on how certain things should be on this car (1969 Z-28 LA car lemans blue)  It seems that all the discussion and research has clarified just how this car came from LA plant in April 1969

 Congrats on the score.    What did the judges decide on the trim rings?

Tim, AMK has the J hook, B-11380, 9&3/4" long. $8
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Balancer bolt on: June 21, 2014, 07:21:50 PM
My 69 Z28 has "TR" headmark with a star washer, it is also drilled as though safety wire could be used. Owned the car since 74.

FWIW.  I have seen this drilled balancer bolt before on lots of high HP Corvette and Z28 engines. Also seen "WB" head marking.

Hope this Helps.

Wing nut

Sorry, It was in the trunk of my car which was up on a drive on hoist in storage.

rs, how much of the hook threads stick out when the nut is down tight ? now im wondering if mine is right or not. oh well, i will find out when i bolt a spare down.

Don't know how much thread sticks up when the spare is installed, but just the threaded section is 5&1/4".
Wing nuts are not all the same BTW.  Correct wing nut is 4&1/2" wide total and there is a small protruding section/collar where it goes through the jack base.

I will post a picture later, as well as wing nut differences.
I have owned this 69 RSZ28 since 1974, 42,000 mile survivor , Canadian Docs.

hhmmm.

My 06A Z28 J bolt is 9&3/4" long dark coloured grey or Black/ phosphate and the wingnut is silver cad. Non space saver. Owned the car since 74.
