Decoding/Numbers / Re: SBC Engine casting number

That number doesn't exist as far as I know.  Check again.  Sometimes a 6 can look like a 0 if the casting is not clean.  Did you check the casting date and if so what is it?

Sore spot?  Nope.

Just thought this horse had been beat to death, was long ago decayed and it's ashes had blown away with the wind.  :D

It gets old though when the same person keeps bringing up the same topic just to be antagonistic.

Really? Are we going to have to hear about this car every time it is for sale?

You checked and the bolts for the engine mounts are installed, right?
And bolts are in the transmission mount and cross member, right?

Come on guys. :)  Remember, check the things that are easy and don't involve any cost first.  Doing this will take a few minutes and if things are OK, then move on.  Process of elimination.

I actually think there is more than one issue, but without seeing this "wobble" in a video or in person, it will be hard to diagnose.

Don't be so sure on that. :)

One thing you can try is to rub some powdered chalk on the area where you can see some of the digits. Then brush it off lightly. That chalk will stick in the areas where the digits were stamped. May or may not help. It's worth a shot.

I started a new thread, which will open things up a bit to include stampings from 10 bolt axles.

Here is the thread.

We have had another thread going looking at the stampings on 1969 axles that used the two different casting numbers late in the year.  This topic is related, but takes a wider look, and is also looking for information from 10 bolt axles which are more common.

If you would like to participate, you can post the following please.

1.  Casting number on the center section.
2.  Casting date on the center section (in the "webbing" area).
3.  Data stamped on the front part of the passenger side axle tube.  Picture requested please.

Make sure your car (or the axle) was assembled between May of 1969 and the end of the model year.

You can either post it here, so send me a PM.  If you send a PM, your photos will be kept confidential.

Thanks in advance.

Lynn, not all government workers are bad.

The coding changed and for your tank the decode was week one of the 1970 model year, not the calendar year. Obviously the Camaro model year for 69 was extended - but the gas tank codes changed.

What I meant was - is there any other damage on the underside of the car that might suggest a failure?

1948
I was not aware of the gas tank date thread. Thanks Austin.

Lynn, there could still have been a failure though. Any other signs of that? Dents or signs of repair?

Again we need more data from this time. I have not run across anything unusual from the axle plants for full size or Chevelles. Yet.

1949
Your idea of catastrophic failure makes the most sense to me based on the things you mentioned.

Definitely would like to have more data from the June to September 1969 timeframe.

1950
Lynn, have you checked both axle tubes to see if the stamp might be somewhere other than the typical location?
