Hi Dannystar -
Yes purchased from Norm Meads - a very nice gentleman. He is a long time friend of Jerry M.
I am still on the hunt for another first gen Z - 69 or maybe even a 67...any leads would be appreciated.
Thanks for the kinds words & have a great day!
Paul

Nice car.

Remember that there are other people looking for cars too and there is a limited supply.

Yes, it appears that at least part of that axle assembly information was stamped at least twice on that particular housing.

1773
I added the cast date to the 0806 axle and added an 0818 axle too.

Thanks Kurt!

I am going to give my opinion but JohnZ or someone else may be able to answer better.

A complete rear axle for service/warranty would have an assembly stamp with ratio code.  These would not be common, in fact they would probably be pretty RARE. 

In most cases, only the bad parts would be replaced.  For example, see the post made by rszmjt above.  It appears that just the housing was replaced and other parts were reused.
A bare housing for service/warranty - would not have received an assembly stamp at the axle plant since it was not "an assembly".

Austin, I don't have an answer to every question and it is probably not in our best interest to answer every question anyway.  Those searching for information on how to restamp parts can see the same posts that we can.  That is why certain details about how or why tags / or drivetrain stamps were made or specific details will not be discussed.  Sorry, but that is the way it is.

Gary, it is my understanding that a replacement empty housing would not be stamped.  So yes, I think we are saying the same thing.

I don't think they would stockpile extra housings though, since the same housing was used for Novas up into the 1971 model year. 

JohnZ or someone else would probably be able to answer better, but I believe that "in general" - service parts were produced based on demand.

Gary, I believe into the 1971 model year, the Nova 12 bolts used the same dimensions as the 67-69 Camaro.

I will stick with the thinking in my previous post, at least for now.   :)

There was probably a higher than normal need for replacement axles around this time based on the track and street racing that was taking place. COPOs, L78s, etc.  And the Novas used the same axle, so that added to the need as well.

There are a few known replacement axles out there.  Nothing unusual happened with the stamping process around that time as far as we know.

Gary, not a big deal, but I changed your post, to removed the pics - since they were already in post immediately above yours.  I hope you don't mind.   :)

Thanks Kurt!  Here is another one.  

341 casting number
CBS 0829G1
Casting date H 17 9

Can't verify it is a Camaro axle.  Might be from a 70 Nova.  It was found under a pickup truck.

Post some more details about the 4P car when you have time.

What is the rear axle code?

The car is the white low mile Z featured in Jerry's book.   Used to be owned by John Berry.  Don't have the book handy (we just moved).   It is featured on several pages, but there is a very clear shot of the decal.

VIN on that white car is 9N671208.

Was the block casting number and casting date posted?  Did you check dates on the heads?

I see it was listed above.
